the new secret sign

Recommended Posts

and in the outside world, you shall be able to identify each other by this sign: right hand in front of and below the chin, palm facing inward, thumb up, and index finger extended.

 

this is the answer! i remember some threads about how to signal potential searchers that you come across without giving anything away.

 

it's better than a secret handshake, and it can be augmented by the proper eyebrow alignment!

 

it doesn't matter if you get to camp at one or at six. dinner is still at six.

I always just wave with my GPS in my hand . . . oh, and in summer, just look for the angry people with briar thorn scratches all over them.

I tried that while walking down the street. Suddenly a van pulled up and two guys with white jackets and restraints jumped out and took me to a nice soft room with no windows, and gave me a white jacket to wear.

Aside from being funny, that is a GOOD ideal! I would use it. Now if someone would just post in here that would have a picture or maybe even have an avatar of him/her with that exact pose, that way others will know exactly what the pose looks like. frog.gif

 

I seen a little Fuzzy thing on the bottom of someone's post the other day that has that exact pose!

Well yes that is what I had pictured, that looks Just Like the way "flask" described it. I changed my avatar the way I thought it would look like.

 

P.S. Who is that guy on that pic anyway? Does anyone know him around here? Is he a cacher?

I don't know about you but that there hand sign is the universal hand gun sign as well. Used it all the time as a kid.

 

This must tie in somehow to the should handguns be placed in caches thread.

 

If a cacher has just pissed you off you could aways use the universil recognition with the thumb cocked forard to indicate your displeasure. It helps thoug to make sure your index finger is pointing directly at them.

If you do point your finger at them, do you have to keep your hand on your chin? It would be hard to look threatening that way. Hard to aim too.

While driving in the vicinity of a cache not long ago, I saw someone walking down the road with a GPS. I stopped the car and leaped out waving my GPS saying "Looking for something?". The guy looked at me funny and said "No." I mentioned geocaching. He hadn't heard of it. I slinked back to the car and drove off.

 

So I'm all for a salute.

One problem with making that the sign...

 

I know you people in here will find this hard to beleive, but, there are quite a few people who don't read the forums. I have even ran into a few that didn't even know what they were.

Wait, now that's... your right or my right... oh I'm so confused... wait, now it would be the OPPOSITE of all the pictures, right?

 

Maybe we should have specific Geocaching colors, too, like wearing a certain color or sports team stuff. Plus we could "tag" our territories with some spray-painted symbols and stuff. And if someone messed with us, they'd get beat down!

No.

Cachers "tag" their terretory with ammo boxes, tupperware, and film cannisters.

What happens if you carry your GPS in the right hand and then you see someone and change to the other hand to give the sign but in the process of trying to hurry you drop your GPS and it bounces down a cliff?

 

I recommend the sign can be displayed by ether right or left hand. (Gun is optional, and only in Texas and other states that allow concealed guns) icon_wink.gif

 

Does anyone have some cache on them?

I like the "either way" option. I mean, if you have the GPS/handgun in one hand, are you going to switch hands just to get the signal across?

 

(Of course, I'd keep a handgun in the small of my back, and have a HK-MP5 slung over my shoulder... for... self-defence, of course. You never know when you'll be out caching, and some Al-Quaeda or Mujahadeem fighters will pop out of nowhere... or if you run into one of those forest-monsters like from the X-files and stuff...)

 

That's why I propose that all Geocachers carry high-powered assault rifles or submachineguns with them at all times. But, that's an entierly different topic.

well actually there is an 'ASAN' (do a google search) but I sure as heck wouldn't want to be associated with them.

Uhmm, not sure how to say this, don't want to tick anyone off. My sister is a teacher at a school for the deaf. I asked her about that sign to see if it matched anything in American Sign Language. Not sure if you want to know this or not, but here it goes. It is very close to the sign for ......Lesbian.......

 

Don't think I am going to be walking around advertising that. no sir.
