YAPIDKA in geocaching glossary

One of my favorite geocaching terms that I found while looking at various regional web sites was YAPIDKA -- "Yet Another Park I Didn't Know About". What a great term. Although no one has used that acronym in one of my caches, I often did see the comment that the person didn't know about the park I'd put the cache in. There are many other parks that I've found caches in that I didn't know about.

 

I propose that "YAPIDKA -- Yet Another Park I Didn't Know About" be added the geocaching.com glossary.

 

I submitted the idea as a message to the geocaching.com people and Eric suggested I post it to this forum.

 

Probably if we all think it's good enough to be included, it will be.

Back in 2002, Moosiegirl and TheOutlaw in Austin started using the term. I don't know if it was used earlier, but here is YAPIDKA #2, and it was published July 24.

In a search for caches with that in the title, here is a list of 20. Of those 20, 6 are from Moosiegirl and TheOutlaw, and another 7 are hidden by another Austin area cacher.
