New entries in the geocaching glossary

Followers 0

Recommended Posts

Situations that one commonly finds while geocaching eventually end up being given names, so that they can easily be referred to again, such as "drunken bee dance", "geostripes" or "Markwelling". I've given some of my most common situations names:


"Ghost chase", "Green slime cache", "Magnet route", "Marker cache", "Proximity zone", "The Tunnel";

"Nelsoning": Compressing a common situation into three words or less, named after the guy who first applied this technique using acronyms, but has since abandoned such frivolity


Have you come up with any terminology you want to share?

FTF = First to Fail - When the first log entry on a newly published cache is a DNF (e.g. when a newly hidden cache is muggled before it is published / found, the first searcher simply couldn't find it, etc.)

I've had that happen more than once to myself (couldn't find, not muggled). I took to calling the phenomenon FTDNF.
