Graveyards, and your final "cache"

Whilst walking Ozzy through the local cemetery this morning, I noticed a headstone that looked like a trig pillar from a certain angle! This got me thinking....

 

Being a geocacher, what would you have as a headstone and what would the inscription be? I'm not being serious by the way, but you can be if you want!

Well - my other hobby is visiting Cornish Churches and photographing gravestones, several thousands to date.

 

My favourite is one at Lansallos Church with an inscription of "Accidentally killed by a cannonball" - I often wonder how..

 

I love the stones made from Slate which are very common in the is County and stay so very clear to read even after 300 years.

 

I love the Quaker stones - which are the same size, same material in each cemetery.

 

But the ones that impress me most are the ones that say least, as I then have to go and research who they were.

So maybe just my name in ROT13?

I would have several headstones all with conflicting and ambigious information.I would also ensure that they were overgrown and eroded and then they could be used as a nice little multi !!!! God how i hate them !

 

My inscription would have to read "Thank God for my mobile !" :rolleyes::lol:

or maybe a Mobile Phone shaped stone and carved where the display would be "Here's one I didn't have to PAF to find"?

Having the coordinates of the gravestone calved on the back is the kind of think I would do just to get people wondering. Would it also be weird to have the coordinates of where I has borne as well? Not quite what was being asked, but, you know.

 

Realistically I think my stone should read "He came, he saw, oooo, something shiny.....".

 

Also, why has nobody done the obvious berried cache joke yet?
