You Found What Near The Cache?

Recommended Posts

The strangest thing that I found was a universal joint near a cache. The cache was in a park, about 3 miles from a road, and it had not been there for very long. We all wondered how it got there. It was big too, like from a truck or bus! :rolleyes:

I know I've already posted to this thread once, but came across another today. While searching for an as advertised "very urban", so urban in fact I didn't feel comfortable in the neighborhood and decided I'd have to log a DNF, cache, I came across an out of business place called...are you ready...wait...the GOD ALMIGHTY RESTAURANT!!! Gee, I wonder why they went out of business??? For the first time since I started caching on business trips, I don't have the camera with me, but this place is less than .25 from the cache in Nashville, TN near Meharry Medical College!!! :mad:

took a wrong turn on a switch back in Montana and came upon a sign,"you will be shot if you pass this point". Went back the way we came and found the cache also bagged a white jeep.

We came a across a hobo's tent near "Short Stop." Another time we came across five half-full beer kegs sitting in a creek bed. Looks like a party had been busted and the kegs were tossed down the hill behind the house. My wife would not help me carry one of the kegs back to our truck because we did not know how long it had been out there. But we did take the taps!

Last month, while completing Medway Ramble, in London, Ontario-we found what was a perfect cache location guarded by a raccoon. Upon closer inspection with our stick, we found it was only the raccoon head. It had been placed perfectly as a guard to the cache, but it was not properly skinned-so the insects were enjoying lunch on his decomposing flesh. It freaked us out quite well, we were just glad that we didn't have any kids with us. <_<

The best thing I ever found near a cache was 2 five dollar bills and a ten dollar bill. They were on the trail I took back to my car. (A different one than I took getting to the cache.)

 

I did a cache not too long ago that was hidden near the wreckage of a plane on the side if a mountain. Seeing what happens when a small plane meets a mountain side was interesting to say the least.

We came upon these last weekend while heading towards some Snow Mountain caches in Lake County, California.

Some strange things I have found, happend on CITO DAY this past year (March 05). There, we found 2 snakes with thier heads cut off, and other junk that we cleanned out.

 

But the other strange thing I saw happened when I first started caching at Taum Sauk Mountain SP in MO. A trail known as THE DEVILS TOLLGATE. A name like that ought to scare you from the start, but it is a hike that I have done before geocaching. So I knew the trail well.

 

But this time while on the way to the cache, I found a deer tail by itself. Don't know how it was there, but there it was all by itself.

I went searching for a cache down by the river in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. took me two tries as on the first try I got sidetracked . . . a man fishing down by the waters edge called up to me to phone 911 - there was a dead body in the water.

 

I only caught a glimpse of it, but that was more than enough.

Found this today. From a short distance it was looking as if it might not be a doll. I moved ahead and checked before my daughter saw it, just in case. Still she was a bit creeped out and was ready to leave "Right Now".

While doing a new urban park cache, I found a Russian Hip Flask with a strong smelling liquid in it. Poured out the liquid but kept the flask...And this is in the middle of North Central Texas..

Let's see clothing, Crack Pipe, got within 20 ft of a 10 pt buck. And didn't actually see but smelled something very dead near one cache. And I picked up a cigerette lighter laying on the ground. Could come in handy. The usual assortment.

How about this rather bad photo of some altar or shrine in a park in the middle of my town? My apoligies for the bad quality of the picture.

In the same woods I found a full sized SUV (I think), a car hood, and a screen door. The screen door was kinda weird because the screen had been punched out, and it was around a tree trunk. (the tree was a normal size tree!!) I also found a party spot, complete with a fire pit filled with beer cans and pringles. There are a lot of beer cans around here!

Walked round the bend in the trail and almost bumped into two young ladies.

I am not sure, but I think one was searching for the others tonsils!

Saturday I went caching with two friends - within five minutes of our meeting at the park, we saw a guy get his bicycle stolen as he went into the restroom - when he came out, he raced after them, screaming and surprisingly, he almost caught them (both on bikes, peddling sedately away). At that point the words my wife uttered the day before started to haunt me, "Ewww. That's not a good area." and I just laughed it off. On the way to the first cache, we saw clothing, trash and what looked like several campsites and lots of graffiti too. I was wondering why anyone in their right mind would hide a cache there, but understood after I saw the view of the city below the hill. The next "find" was hilarious, when my friend Ohgr literally "stepped in it" - "it" being a huge pile of what may have been human crap, possibly Bigfoot - yes, it was that big and a bright red (not blood, possibly berries). After I left (found two caches) my friends Ohgr and Maria went to find a third cache and came across a porn stash and what looked like another campsite - they logged it as a DNF when they realized the crackheads in the park were watching them. Ain't caching just one adventure after another? :unsure:

That my friend with the berries in it was Black Bear poop. D'oh!

:D Well, let's see............My wife found a loaded Beretta 9MM semi-aoto pistol behind a bank in Tucson, Az while looking for a micro.......I have found a dead elk, dead horse, dead Javelina, a couple of porno stashes, and a red size 48HH bra hanging in a palo verde tree that I first thought was a parachute for a mini rocket. ...I also came upon a hobo sleeping in a plywood shelter. I'm not sure who was the most startled. ....And the last.......A live rattlesnake that I apparently stepped on and somehow didn't get bitten. It was cool out and he apparently wasn't too active yet, but when I heard the unmistakable "buzzing", I looked down to see the tail flailing around. I think I stepped (On it) very close to his head, and he couldn't reach me that quickly. Who knows................. :)

We were in San Diego 2 summers ago ( we are from Texas and it was our first trip to San Diego) We HAD to cache while we were there..... it looks good on our stats to cache while on vacation! WOW caching in California is much different than Texas! We had to buy a shovel to dig up the beach and still didnt find it..... another was we were caching in town but in a wooded area with our two young boys 4&7.... naturally the straightest rought isnt always the safest route..... we headed into the woods, forget the path..... down an hill to a creek area and back up the hill... about halfway down we past 2 cots that were in a heavily wooded spot that had bottled drinks and pron magazines and the feeling that someone was JUST there....... B) WHAT A CREEPY FEELING> Did we have our cell phones with us???? NO lucky for us we didnt see anyone but we are sure they saw us.... to cross the creek our youngest fell in and he was whisked up so fast in fear so we could keep moving.... on the way back up there was a small tent with trash all around so here we were creeped out again..... B) we were never so releaved to get back to our vehicle! We did find the cache and for the rest of the vacation we were scared out of our minds everytime we entered a wooded area. We have come upon a dead, dried out, skunk that stank soooo bad you could swear it was a fresh kill. While caching alone I came upon a dead small deer.... just surprised me. But the woods people had to be the scariest!!!!!!

I was caching in the Pine Barrens region of NJ one winter several years ago when I heard shouting and shots. This injured Russian dude came running past me. Later, I saw these two italian guys cussing at each other in a van.

 

I have no idea what they were doing. I wonder what happened to that Russian guy?

A brand new professional two way walkie talkie radio and a motorcycle helmet. Apparently, someone tried to hop a high fence and dropped the radio and the helmet (didn't they notice???). Whoever the stuff belonged to probably didn't want to admit that they hopped a fence (in a restricted area, mind you) in search of a cache. So after two weeks of advertising, I sold the lot for a tidy sum. It was the most profitable cache I ever went after! -BK

On our way back out from finding a couple caches on a suburban trail, my partner noticed a green folder with papers in it lying next to the road. We retrieved it and discovered it full of social security statements and bills for someone in a nearby community. Well, that's odd. Without much looking we found a phone number, called, and left a message. Then went on to a nearby cache. While looking there, the owner of the folder called back.

 

On Christmas Eve, his car window was smashed and his backpack was stolen. They did some damage with his credit card -- and apparently dumped the rest of the contents at this out-of-the-way trailhead. He was very happy to hear we had found the folder.

 

We wondered if there might be something else of his back there. So, back to where we found it. And, sure enough, there was a case with two dental bridges. (We much prefer to find false teeth than real human teeth, if we have to pick.) We called him back, and, yes, they were his -- and he was ecstatic that we had found them. The teeth and paperwork have been reunited with their owner.

A recent trek into the woods and a mis-written set of coordinates caused me to happen upon a rusty can at the base of a tree. Being inquisitive, I researched further, and found the durn thing was full of coins (mostly pennies). Looks like it had been there a while, so I put it in the boot and brought it home for drying and cleaning ... oh, yeah, I fnally found the cache too.

I found this the other day. Still not sure what the deal was, but since I didn't have a hard-hat, I didn't hang around to find out.
