+ajayhawkfan Posted July 24, 2006 Share Posted July 24, 2006 Do you ever say "Oh No, not a ______! when arriving at the coords. Here are the places I say that. 1. Caches hidden in or near playground equipment. Being a 43 year old man and caching alone I fit the profile of a child molester therefore I get plenty of stares from protective parents while walking about a playground. It makes the parents and me uncomfortable. One parent even though my GPRr was a camera and confronted me about it. I now pass on any playground that has children around. 2. Caboose, tank and train engine. I think every one of these items are cool to see, especially an old stream train, but can be very frustrating to me if it is a well camoed container. I give up and look at the hint sooner on these caches then any other. On a tank was at a busy intersection, I had to climb on its top to find it in a vent slot. Another was a fake "bolt" on a steam engine. The hint was "A BOLT", give me a break, there are more then a few bolts on a steam engine! I did find it purely by luck. 3. Large rock piles (rip rap). I dislike walking across acres of boulders or broken cement to the coordinates and seeing everything looking exactly alike, not one clue on were to start looking. (It also seems the coords are always off in rock piles.) While walking the boulders are rolling under your feet. While looking you have to roll the rocks away and one always seems to roll and hit my shin or land on my feet. A surgeon in the KC areas had a rock roll into his hand and crush it. He need surgery to repair it. 4. Caches hidden in Eastern Cedar trees. The location can be incredibly beautiful but seeing a cache in a cedar tree make me say "OH, NO Not a cedar tree!!" Put it in poison ivy and I don't care, I'll reach in and grab it but not in a cedar tree because any bare skin of mine that rubs cedar branches will break out in a rash and itch like crazy. Do you have any places that make you say "Oh No, Not a _________!!"? Quote Link to comment
