National Muggler?

There's a local thread on our caching group page that's talking about how some guy caught his wife cheating by putting his GPS/similar device in her car on a mapping or routing mode (can't think of what it's called right now). Maybe you could plant a cache likely to be victim to the muggler and follow him or track him in some way. I'm kidding of course, but how funny would that be?

 

Better yet, TheMuggler opens a cache that has a camera inside linked to a computer that will capture his image. If you have a lot of time on your hands, don't fear being accused of being petty and have money to spare...

You can pick up GPS tracking units for about 250 bucks .. but then there goes your tracking unit and the muggler will keep it, destroy it, or just drop it on the ground and leave it, plus dont know if it'd pick up signal through an ammo can. I know those small units are better at acquiring signals then our personal GPSr's ... but I think it's unlikely...

 

Haved toy'd with those tracking units, pretty neat stuff. ;)

This is quite similar to what is happening in France nowadays:

Front de Libération des Nains de Jardins

 

for non-Francophones: this is about the

Garden Gnomes Liberation Front

 

It's people who steal your garden gnome, take it to London, and send you a postcard of it standing in front of the Big Ben...

Actually, that's kind of funny. I'm sure it wouldn't be if it were my gnome, though.

 

(I'd like to go on record with the fact that we own no gnomes.)

Myself, I'd set the cache up with an alarm that sounds if it's moved more than 30 feet from where it's supposed to be.

 

Either that, or stick him in a room with a malware-infested computer and a dial-up connection to the Internet, and have his disinfect the PC as penance (and do it without using the F+R - Format and Reload - technique!).

Unbelieveable ... what some people do for kicks. I wish someone would steal me and take me to London. :ph34r:

 

We used to exchange neighbors lawn ornaments, get drunk, and then wait hidden nearby for the people to get their morning paper. People would have the best figuring-this-out-is-far-more-than-my-pre-caffinated-brain-can-take looks. That's good stuff when you're in high school.

 

BTW, I would like to go on record by saying that I do not have any lawn gnomes, but wish I did. I'm a lawn gnome having wannabe.

We have two cast iron planters at the end of our driveway. Each one probably weighs 50-60 pounds. Occasionally, the neighborhood kids will move them to the driveway across the street. I figure if that is the most mischief they do, no big deal.

You know those invisible fence things for pets? The one that shocks the animal if they stray beyond the boundry? Set a perimeter around the cache and then wire it to the ammo can. It should conduct the shock nicely. They would probably still steal it, but at least you would have the satisfaction of knowing they got a shock.

There's the best idea I've heard yet. :)

We had a notorious micro-hater from this area go into a Cracker Barrel with "info" on geocaching to give to the management and informed him that one of these (caches) might be in the front of the store. THE INFO HE GAVE THE MANAGEMENT WAS A CNN ARTICLE ON A CACHE BEING CONFUSED AS A BOMB. That's just about the worst cache sabotage (we have that too...targeted at specific cachers notorious for planting micros) I've ever heard.

 

It's one thing not to like micros because ou're afraid it will give the public the wrong idea of the sport, but to intentionally give the public this idea...that's scary, psychotic.

 

That's kind of a one sided view there. But, how do you know what the paper he showed them was if you weren't standing there with him?

Yeah, but how would you get him/her to put on the shocking collar? :P:):D

 

Happy Caching!

If someone actually stoops to muggling all the caches in an area for the sake of muggling them, then they really are a big-time loser. As if they could not find anything better to do than to steal other people's belongings.

 

Imagine this guy years later when he looks over his loot realizing he's got:

 

123 stickers

17 ammo cans

3 large ammo cans

48 useless foreign coins

$7.23 USD in mostly pennies

87 smelling log books

294 35mm film canisters

281 35mm film canister lids

48 keychains (22 of them consisting of "Farmers Insurance")

302 used plastic baggies

21 wooden nickels

2 travel bugs

8 real bugs

2 balls of rolled up cammo duct tape

81 one-inch pencils

55 small kid toys

1 tracked geocoin

4 plastic specimen jars

1 plastic casion watch circa 1980s that refuses to "tick"

7 actual ticks

91 scratches from thorny bushes

2 FTF tags

1 half-used can of deet

13 rusted Altoid tins

1 rainbow necklace

1 partridge in a pear tree...

And it hits him.. I should have just logged the caches and left the rest alone.

:lol::P
