Removing jewelry before geocaching


Recommended Posts

I often remove my jewelry for any outdoor activity, mainly because I love it and don't want to lose it!


Sometimes my fingers will swell when I intake too much salt or walk a long time with arms hanging down - rings can get real uncomfortable then.

Necklaces and bracelets can tangle in GPS lanyards or get caught in branches.


But yeah, your wife is probably just embarrased to be identified as yours icon_razz.gif

I'm afraid of turning my expensive diamond wedding ring into a cache *left* item. My rings stay home.


Also I don't have to worry about banging my hands around reaching around rocks, concrete or whatever one might face on a cache hunt.


Till a voice, as bad as Conscience, rang interminable changes

On one everlasting Whisper day and night repeated -- so:

"Something hidden. Go and find it. Go and look behind the Ranges --

"Something lost behind the Ranges. Lost and waiting for you. Go!"

I've already scratched my wedding ring a bit while climbing on rocks and sticking my hand in holes, so nowadays I always remove it on caching trips.


This is not a picture of my wedding ring, but it's about the same size and looks the same. (Our rings were forged by a friend who's a smith.) It's wide, about 10 mm, so the scratches look nasty on it.


- I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory. -
