Geocaching Quotes

75 posts in this topic

To have a break from the usual "I don't like how so and so's cache is" topics I see on this board all the time, here's a nice happy geocaching fun topic.

 

Post your favorite geocaching quotes?

 

These can be navigation related, cache related, or anything you've muttered while caching. Humor is appreciated.

"Just a few more meters"

 

This one goes back to my backpacking days when I had a buddy that used to say the same thing when asked "How much farther?"

Here's a thread on the topic Famous quotes that was started a little over 2 years ago. There were some great quotes in there.

The majority of the time I end up wandering around muttering in frustration, "What am I doing here? Why am I doing this? I'm not good at this. Why am I geocaching?". :D

Reading the previous thread on quotes was great. Thank you for that link. I noticed some (many?) of the quotes were poems or songs, so I thought I would add one that might fit.

 

There's gold, and it's haunting and haunting;

It's luring me on as of old;

Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting

So much as just finding the gold.

 

Robert Service from "The Spell of the Yukon."

"This is supposed to be fun" which is usually immediatly followed by a long tirade by someone who's clearly not having fun due to their own internal cache issues.

 

I snicker every time I read a post that says that. I know it's about to be a good day.

A paraphrase from Dory in Finding Nemo: "Just keep walking, just keep walking...." I find myself singing it under my breath when I'm wondering if I'm going to make it back to the cachemobile. :rolleyes:

That makes me think of the quote that we say all the time, I think it's from the movie "Dave". "And we're walking, we're walking..." Ah. Hafta see the movie to get it, but it's so funny.

 

:(

 

(Should I admit that I giggle whenever I say it? And if I say it with my husband there, he giggles too? :rolleyes: )

Mine is "Even a blind monkey finds a banana sometimes"

O.k. "Thanks for the cache and rock on!" "If you find can one, you find can two. If you can find two, you can find four. If you can find four, you can find eight, and so on" :) This is one great thread. :)

"GEOCACHING -

I use multi-billion dollar satellites to find tupperware hidden in the woods. What do you do?" :)

 

More than once I have uttered, "I hope the batteries don't give out." Only to have the screen go blank 100 feet from the cache and 1/2 mile from the car...

This quote was on a bill board that was sponsored by a local gas chain back in the late 50's and early 60's. I thought it applied to us geocachers also so have adopted it:

 

Lost? Keep Going. Your making good time anyway!!.

"Can they find me by gps coordinates?" goes through my mind when caching in the middle of the woods in the middle of the summer when I forget to bring water with me.

The majority of the time I end up wandering around muttering in frustration, "What am I doing here? Why am I doing this? I'm not good at this. Why am I geocaching?".

 

My variation on that is "What a stupid frigging hobby!" Then I finally find the cache and all is well again, and off I run to hunt for the next one.

A couple T-shirts I had printed up for a recent event read:

"Micros

Geocaching's version of Spam"

 

and, (stolen from a D@nim@l post)

 

"All gave some,

Some gave.....micros.

From my new signature magnet:

I had forgotten about writing that quote in my 1000th find log until GratefulMike reminded me of it at an event. It sounded good to me, so I decided to make use of it. :)

You ask him how much he wants for the painting of the turkey. I'll grab the cache when he gets up off the standpipe to help you.

Someone is using this as their sig line:

Sometimes geocaching is like getting a double nipple titty twister

It can hurt like hell and you’re still having a damnn good time

This one is the best. Whenever I think of it, I give my husband one. He does not thank you.

My favorite quote comes from a geocacher's log, I forget now whom, but she was asked by a muggle

 

"Y'all aren't doin' anything stoopid, are you?"

 

That question pops into my mind in all kinds of geocaching situations!

While geocaching with my wife last winter, I was gloating over finding yet another cache where she had already looked. She accused me of acting as though I could walk on water, to which I replied "I can. It just has to be frozen." She hit me with the ammo can.

Nerd Trail

my girlfriend's nickname for the trampled foliage that usually leads to an established cache, and the area around the fallen logs with no vegetation and packed dirt.

 

just one more, then we'll go eat

I seem to say this on almost every caching trip.

 

meh, let's skip that one it's just a (micro, virtual, puzzle)

 

no, the gps says it's over here, you're not even clo... oh you found it?

 

I thought *you* had the pencil.

 

lost satellite reception

my GPSr usually says this, I think it means that it's turned on.

 

ooh look... that would be a good place for a cache!

Robert Service from "The Spell of the Yukon."

 

I quote this one a lot in my logs. I feel it sums me up fairly well.

I have a great recording of Jean Shepherd reading this one.

 

Second to that quote, I often find myself saying or noting in my logs that, "My GPS hates me!"

From a young muggle to whom I was trying to explain the concept of geocaching after I'd inadvertently cut across his backyard in the Oklahoma countryside chasing a FTF:

 

"You get paid for doing this?"

 

Yeah, right.

Here is a log on one of my caches. :unsure:

November 2 by Show Me the Cache (7559 found)

And what right do grown men wearing ugly plaid pants, horsey shirts, and silly little caps while chasing a small white ball around in the woods to beat it repeatedly with a stick have to look at me like I'm the one that is doing something weird? RATED:Hiking Boots

My girlfriend yesterday heard me talking to our son: "Hey Caleb, want to go find toys in the woods?" to which he obviously shook his head yes...

 

she replied: "y'know...most kids go to the store to get toys..."

 

that made me laugh.

Reading through the logs of a local cacher who was searching for a cache from Touchstone - a local who had a propensity for placing 4.5* terrain caches and climbing mountains with kids on his back - I came across this gem that rings true for us locals.

 

It was part of a large description of his travels, and referred to a specific point where we reached a junction of trails with no clear instruction on which way to go.

 

"...knowing that it was a Touchstone cache I took the trail that lead uphill...."

 

Makes me laugh everytime I think of it because it's so spot-on.

"So...how long do you want to look for this thing?"

 

Inevitably uttered by the first person to give up when they don't want to admit it.
