Wierdest thing you have ever found in a cache

Recommended Posts

We've all found some wierd stuff. What was the number one craziest/sickest/straight-up effed up thing you found in a cache.

Personally, I found a dime-bag on one of my adventures a cache in down-town LA

A specimen cup. I think it was new. I hope it was new. I can't begin to imagine what the person who left it was thinking of though. It was still there after I wasn't.

What was the number one sickest

 

A condom :laughing: opened but not used (I hope) had my 5yr old with me, that one really pissed me off used a stick to get it out and posted a note for future cachers and the owner that the contents might be contaminated.

I *think* the thing is called a "speculum?" You'd have to ask a female or a female doctor to be sure, LOL. No idea what the guy had it for, but I wanted to make a TB out of it in the worst way. The possibilities for "goals/missions" would be endless! :laughing::rolleyes:<_<:ph34r:

This travel bug, found in one of the first caches we hunted, is the flat-out weirdest thing we've seen in a cache:

Also found a roach (non-insect variety) in a cliff-top cache. Maybe someone had a prescription to ease their acrophobia--yeah, that's the story.

We found a loose razor blade in a cache once. Fortunately I dump the contents on the ground when I look at swag instead of reaching in the container.

In a cache....found condoms, tampons, bottle rockets.

But the single most disgusting thing I have ever found while LOOKING for a cache......a used colostomy bag. EEEWWWWWW

Yah that's a very good idea. I will remember that for future caches - you never know what could be in there! :D

Well my find isn't exactly weird. however i would like to thank the person who left it. It was a JCPenney Gift Card that had 50 bucks on it. And it wasn't even a FTF prize.

I found a dildo and a large turd both with in a foot of GCNPT4

 

Found a turtle in a cache, hopefully placed by a muggle, since the last log had been 2 days before, and they hadn't mentioned it. Released him, and off he, umm, ran...kinda.

Didn't see this, but, this log showed up from a cache on my watchlist.

 

NO Lie!

 

Stoped by after work.

Took the coin and old pirate sticker.

 

Left a old stun gun. Don't think it works anymore, and no batteries in it.

 

As long as he "thinks" it doesn't work it should be OK I guess. :laughing:

I found a Starbucks gift card in my cache when I did a check up on it, but there wasn't any money on it.

I also found a bud. I flushed it down the toilet.

 

Then there was the spider who had decided to make the cache his home.

 

And when finding this one micro, I found a wasp nest. EEEEEEEK!

One time, in this cache, I found religion!

 

*prays*

 

...seriously, though, the ones around Horry County are pretty tame. Plastic toys and the like. I'm tempted to mix it up a little now, though ... with something neat, mind you ... no condoms!

Another time I found two spiders in a cache, well one was eating the other. It was wierd.

 

Did you get the TB number before he was gone? :laughing:

I found a "personal pleasure device for women" (hot pink) very close to a cache I visited today. Its presence at that location was highly odd ... on limestone boulders on a steep canal bank in the middle of the Everglades.

 

I can only assume it was left there as trash ... I cannot conceive of a situation in which it would be used as intended at that location (except by a masochist or a thrill seeker ... or both).

I think that's some kind of childish prank I've heard about. I think it's called 'geodumping' or some such. Punk kids will take a crap in a geocache, etc, etc. Like seriously... get a hobby, dadgum kids. And not this one either... get a different hobby. Preferably one that keeps you out of public.

I was checking one of my own caches and found a used brillo pad. I took it out and threw it in a trash can. When I made a maintenance log I noted the brillo pad and ended with "... what is up with that?" The person that put the brillo pad in the cache emailed me and took offense with my offhand comment. He thought that it was a unique trade item and didn't see anything at all unusual about that.

Stage one in a multi, found a bag of doggy treats sitting in a tree, stage two, found adult reading material of the rainbow kind for men, 7 feet up in a tree...double wrapped, unopened, with a receipt. After laughing over that, I looked down only to find bondage ropes....used. Stage 3 of the same multi...A HUGE crayfish, big as my hand, in the middle of a field. 2 caches later, we found a used sock, and rolling papers in the cache. It was a LONG day!

What's the problem with unopened condoms? Strange item to trade, but they don't bite. You should know where 'some' people wear them! To eliminate the 'but my kid could see it'- argument: A condom (or it's packaging) will not do any damage to your kid's eyes. It will not cause brain damage. I reckon seeing a Britney Spears video is more damaging to your kid than the sight of an unopend condom wrapper.

 

If you want your children to be safe from these 'harmful' parafenalea in cache containers, don't take them geocaching. The point of the game is finding boxes wherein strangers trade stuff. These boxes are without supervision, out in the open. Doesn't sound like a child-safe game to me...

MALE doctors use those too... :)

Last weekend while caching on a frozen island beach in Escanaba, Michigan we found a pair of jeans with thermal underwear still in them as though they had been removed at the same time. Next to them was a pair of underwear and socks. We are assuming from the thermals that the clothing was removed and left in the winter time. All of the clothes were wet. The walk back to the car was .33 miles. The question is: How did the guy get back to his car wearing nothing but his boots, shirt and coat in the snow? (Couldn't be suicide because the lake was frozen.) :smile:

 

Does that count as weird? :huh:

Actually it's a survival technique. Wet clothes wick heat away from your body faster than just naked skin. The user must have fallen in the ice, got to shore, taken off his pants, then ran like h*ll to a warm place.

Not something I found IN a cache . . .

 

One of my caches is in a small park. I had stopped by on a maintenance visit to add a log. As I was leaving the parking lot I noticed a small gray box off one edge of the lot. Not remembering seeing it before and being a curios sort, I pulled over to check it out. Turned out to be a plastic file box, the kind of box you put hanging files in, with a hinged lid. Opened it up to find a bed of sawdust, a plastic Easter Egg, a bowl of water . . . and a dead baby bunny.

 

The only thing I could think of was that someone had received an unwanted Easter Bunny and was hoping it would be adopted if they left it in a public place. Probably sat out in the sun a day or two too long . . .

This wasn't in the cache(thankfully!), but I was searching for this

and found two abandoned puppies at the waypoint. They are a couple of sweethearts! I'm fostering them until I can find them good homes. ;)

Ah, gift cards, they rock! I have found them in the secure trash at work I go through to toss out, and then I call the number on the back, or website search, for the balance. I have found alot of money this way.

 

I think I read somewhere that the amount of gift cards that NEVER get used is 3 billion a year-a great money maker for any company. Great finds for Colorado Cacher.

After reading about some of the other "finds" on this post, I'm pretty thankful that I can claim that a varnished alligator foot, attached to a keyring, has been our weirdest find so far! :lol:

I found a cold bottle of beer… a Corona. One always has to be suspicious. I figured we were sharing the cache with some teenage partiers.

How can it be a "gift card" if they forgot to load it? :blink::):)

 

You found a piece of store branded plastic, rectangular in shape, and worthless!! :)

I am sure I will be adding to the list since I am so new to it but I have already found weird stuff...

Found a small plastic zip bag with a couple of fishing hooks and bait in it. I think the bait was either crayfish or some sort of squid...very yucky...
