+jollybgood Posted March 9, 2002 Share Posted March 9, 2002 Had to share this. This morning I was searchign for a local cache (WATER PIT) and was having some trouble finding it. I expanded my search area from the trail which lead into the area and began poking about the bushes. About 10 minutes into my search I noticed a woman walking a dog heading down the trail. I tried to act 'normal' but how do you do that when you're just standing about twenty feet off the trail just 'standing around'. She gave me a weird look and moved on. After waiting a few minutes to make sure the coast was clear and returned to my search. I found the cache and logged it. On my way back to the car I was surpised to see two uniformed police officers heading my way. Yep! The lady had called the police. They were nice enough. After trying to explain what geocaching was one of the officers smiled and said, "Oh, I've heard of this. It's like a scavenger hunt -- Right?" I ended up showing them my GPS unit which was still locked in on the cache I just logged and they seemed to find the whole thing fascinating. Apparently the lady with the dog called in that a 'suspicious looking man' had some sort of device and was 'taking measurements'. I guess I can understand her nervousness. Anyway, I'm sure others have had similar experiences. It turned out to be an interesting hunt. Jolly R. Blackburn Editor/Creator, Knights of the Dinner Table Quote Link to comment
