Booby Traps?

The closest thing to a booby trapped cache I've heard of was one where someone sprayed some pepper spray inside. Ya figure, 50,000+ caches out there with hundreds of thousands of finds (conservatively) and only one instance of a booby trapped cache (if you can even call it booby trappped). I'll take those odds.

I read those posts also and they seem to be in areas where there are meth labs and certain agricultural endevers that are not legal. I've never heard of that beeing a problem here in MI. (We have 4 finds here now! icon_biggrin.gif we are hot!) Our first cache, and I've never mentioned this in public before, there was a giant (8 inch) Big Ben alarm clock OUTSIDE the cache but right smack next to it. My son reached for it before I saw it. When I saw it I FREAKED out icon_eek.gif thinking bomb! 'Back away from the cache!' I poked it with a looooooong stick, then when we didn't blow up we proceeded. And took the clock! LOL

You could post on www.mi-geocaching.org and see if any other of us Michiganders have had an incident. We are a fun group.....come on over! icon_biggrin.gif

Wait a minute, you "FREAKED out thinking bomb" and then POKED IT WITH A STICK????????

 

I don't even have the words necessary to express what I feel about that..... icon_eek.gificon_frown.gificon_eek.gificon_mad.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_eek.gif

I doubt there is much, if any booby trapped caches. People worry to much. If we would just re-instate the death penalty....that would take care of the 10% that do 90% of the bad stuff. Ooops...now I've done it....I expressed a political opinion....bombs away!!!

 

We're going on a treasure hunt...we're not quite sure just where...but with our trusty GPS, we'll find a cache stashed there!!

I booby trapped one. I stuck a big rubber spider inside of one that moved when you opened the lip. Another I did the same except with a rubber mouse. Fun stuff.

 

I've been injured geocaching though. Nothing is totally safe. I had a tree fall on me while out in the woods. Or maybe it was Mitey Mite pushing it over on me? Naw, that would mean she isn't happy with me.

 

I hear voices.....and they don't like you!

I think it is only a matter of time till some one makes this a reality (every one saying this won't happen, so I will make it happen-there is allot of sickos in the world), like the woman who microwaved her baby because of the urban legend. This in sense made the legend come true.

only a though.

 

The probability of someone watching you is directly proportional to the stupidity of your actions.
