So I was out caching today and my find, which wasn't the cache was a very strange thing to find in the bushes in a rural area.

 

I say through the bushes what i thought may have been the cache, so I wandered through to it, lifted the cloth over it and guess what it was? :D

 

I found a Cash Machine (not Cache Machine), Bank Machine, yes an Automated Teller Machine, yes an ATM!!

 

Needless to say I high tailed it outta their, not wanting who ever dropped it their to return with me there, and called the local authorities when I got home.

I know of a cache that is within 20 feet of an ATM. Actually more like within 0 feet.

I think Juicepig found a body near a cache. B)

 

I found a rusty old license plate from 1931. Taoiseach loves old license plates, so I gave it to him and he immediately declared that it was his favourite. This was in the period before we were "together" when all our geocaching friends knew what we had yet to realize. :D

I have only found a decaying corpse near GZ. Nothing special.

 

story please :D

 

Sorry, not too much of a story.

I was caching and didn't realize I was straddling the decaying animal corpse. I think it was a possum or a cat. I'm not sure. It was quite rotten but since it was cold, no aroma.

Two items that I turned into Travel Bugs:

 

Hard Rocker (A Hard rock Cafe Necklace)

Artifact #1114 (Somebody's set of various keys)

 

I might have to do that sometime. If I CITO something interesting and not just garbage, add a TB and release.

Reminds me of the found art projects: collages made of things found on the street including letters and photographs.

My goal this summer is to use camera and GPS to photograph and log coordinates of plastic bags that I CITO.

Near GQ's Headcase (Archived) there was a turtle graveyard. Like more than a dozen empty turtle shells and some were quite large.

 

It reminded me of the old B&W Tarzan movie about the elephant graveyard.

The elephant graveyard was in Lion King.

The elephant graveyard may just possibly have been mentioned in more than one literary work.

Somebody once found a newborn baby fawn (deer) curled up on one of my caches and got a picture of it. (awwwwwwwwww)

 

We came across this newborn near one of Geowyz's caches a while back.

We've crossed paths with lots of critters while caching,, lots of snakes, alligators, a bobcat, wild hogs, and an owl in a hollow tree. Thankfully, none of the dead carcusses we encountered were of the human type! :laughing:

Definately the cutest cache ever. I won't even make any venison jokes. Mostly because my girlfriend is watching me type this and will hit me if I do <_<

Found a whole truckload of fish dumped right by the cache site. I found the pile first but lots of others got to enjoy the smells while the pile decomposed:

The cache was renamed in honor of the sacrifice (and in honor of a cacher named We5Fish, FTF on the cache before the dumping) and is now called "WeSmellFish"

About this time last year I found a cache, then as I was walking back to my car saw a pile of about 10 dead canadian geese.

 

Last Friday, while searching for a cache I saw lots of these. Some of them were 9-10" long.

I don't know if this would be called "interesting" unless you look into the psychology of it but last night, within 20 feet of the cache I found no less than a half dozen condom wrappers and a fair percentage of the used condoms. It was almost like a cacher was using that spot as a hookup place. The odd thing is the wrappers were different brands so it HAS to have been from different people.

 

Although disgusting, from a psychological viewpoint it's interesting.

I can see stumbling onto a quiet secluded spot with a partner and getting, um, inspired by the location and the mood and all but this place lost its "inspiration" with the first discarded protective device and subsequent wrapper. At that point it became little more than an outdoor toilet.

Adding that there were a few trails in the area I found it interesting that people seemed to be enjoying themselves at the place where the DNA stockpile was accumulating rather than picking an area further away with less discarded latex and plastic. It was almost like these people were drawn and, um, inspired by the conditions of the site.

 

It didn't help that I was finding this cache at night but for some reason I really kept looking over my shoulder while signing the logsheet.

 

I should add that, other than the obvious "litter" the cache site is awesome. It has a lot of character and history.

1. A pile of dead/decaying animals (most likely squirrels/coons) - at least 10 bodies

2. An LCBO bag with a FULL bottle of Rum - it was sealed (no, I didn't take it)

3. While night caching, we came across 4 live deer within 10m of where we were standing. They stopped and stared at us, so we did the same. Best part of it - we were in a small park and they were standing right on someone's front lawn. We stood watching each other for at least 10 minutes.

I had a couple of deer sneek up on me while signing the log book. They had been 40is metres away when I opened the cache up, but when I looked up from signing the log, they were about 10m. Kind of creeped me out. Were these some killer deer or something?

Maybe there is some GPS based hook-up website. I was trying to come up with a funny name, Geo something, but can't seem to think of one.

Actually, on Good Friday (and after this thread was started), I found a porno DVD case within 20 feet of a cache. I assume it was empty, I wasn't touching it. It had a slighty weathered, but explicit cover photo. I do remember the name of it, but I shan't be posting it here. ;)
