avroair Posted September 3, 2004 Share Posted September 3, 2004 Well, it happened again. I was at a cache today, crouching at some bushes when I heard" Can I help you" I didn't turn around and just said nah, I am looking for something. I then thought I should turn and there were 3 police cruisers and 3 cop cars. " What are you doing in there?" Since I had a GPS and cache page in my hand I told them the truth... Nuthin' Well... I then told them I was part of a scavenger hunt. And showed them my stuff, they checked my pockets, In guess in case I had a M16 hidden in there and asked me some questions. I answersed truthfully and they had asked if I had done any other caches. They had been tailing me since my last cache. I said yes, but hadn't found it (didn't want to let them know it was an ammo can). An officer took my license number down while another went to look for the cache (it was Power Trip 3, so I knew he was going to log a DNF!). He came back handed back my GPS and said I was stupid to park at a school (I was actually parked across the street). Anyhoo... after I explained the WG$ in my pocket they began to lose interest in me, myself and the geek that I am. They asked if there were any other caches... Yup, in 200 countries. That impressed them. He then asked if I wanted to finish my hunt. 'No thanks' My adrendaline is running a little too high and I think I crapped my pants. Barnes and Noble for the rest of the day will be fine by me. I wish I had a logbook for them to sign Well, they were about to leave and I realized that my car was .17 miles away so I ventured to ask for a ride. One officer complied, but asked if I was carrying a knife. No officer. (Phew! Glad I left the cutlass in the trunk!). He drove me back to my car and dropped me off just as all the kids were coming out of school. Many people just gawked at me, I said thanks and said "I'm undercover" to one of the moms. With that I stopped my afternoon suburban cache romp and went to Scourland Reservation for some quiet aone-time hiking in the woods. Quote Link to comment
