You Found What Near The Cache?

Recommended Posts

I am new to this game and was able to find only two caches out of five attempts. However, I can't believe in my good luck today. I was not able to find the cache at location N53.32.250 W113.27.817 but I found two cans of my favorite beer Black Ice. The cans were little dirtybut the beer inside is just fine. Cheers to everyone.

A couple months ago my grandson, who is 15, and I took a french foreign exchange student out to search for a cache that I had been wanting to hit for some time. It is at the bottom of the tallest bridge in Oregon. Just as we reached the bottom of the hill that we had just come down 150' of rope (approx.), we found a dead girl who had been missing for about a week. Nothing gruesome, but we pretty much ran back up the rope. Got to a phone and called 911. Gave plenty of statements. Still haven't been back...

We have a puzzle cache here in Davis CA "Got Coffee?" and the log started getting comments like, "But what was the cat tail? Right next to the cache...in fact, the cache was touching it,.... is a cat's tail protruding from something. I wonder if the tail is fake or real. I didn't want to touch it," and "What's the deal with the fake cat in a bag? We were too scared to touch it," and ,"Saw the dead cat, very disturbing. Did not touch." Weird....

 

So then the owner of the cache added to the GZ site, "Update 6/2006: There is a fake dead cat in a bag next to the cache now. I don't know why. I didn't touch it either."

 

LOL :)

This was a unusual find...

 

My favorite yet...

 

I was on my way to a FTF and was passing under a concrete bridge over a canal when I found a nude model and photographer doing a photo shoot, using the colourful graffiti on the bridge as a backdrop.

 

The photographer asked me to wave in the background of one of the photos, so I held up my GPSr!

 

He did mention the website he was working for, I looked it up and it was an artists and photographers site (NOT porn!) but the photos hadn't been posted, I never did find the pictures anywhere!

Was it a male or female model?

2 wheelbarrows full of stuff. 2 TVs, VCRs, DVD Players, CDs, DVDs. They had been there so long the tires were flat and some of the items damaged. We left the items fearing they could be stolen or damaged completely. So, have left it for others to see on their way to a cache.

I have seen posts about strange things in a cache and strange containers, but what are some of the unusual things you have found on the way to a cache? I ask because I just relocated a cache and the second finder at the new site thought I hid my cache inside a bong. Turns out he found a camouflaged bong 20 feet from my new final. I have since trashed it out but it got me to thinking what else is out there to be found?

 

I found a tupperware with cigerette cigars and some pot in it near one of my caches when i went to do maintnence - i tossed it over the nearby freeway fence :D

I just got one of those free Garmin Nuvi's and didn't realize the shortcuts that it's capable of sending you on. As I was traveling from one cache to another, it took me off a dead-end road, through a farm yard, and across a field...that's when I discovered I was in redneck country. I saw a WWII howitzer on a hillside and a silo with a tractor on top...I kid you not!

The oddest thing I have found so far in my one year of caching was the skin/hide of a dead pig - no bones or meat. It was near a lake, so I suppose someone skinned it and dumped it. Quite an aroma I do say! Not to mention how gross it was. I have also seen remains of deer and fish, but not at this site.

A couple of weeks ago the whole family went with me to find the cache of a local cacher hubby and I have become friends with over the last couple of years. Hubby didn't want to give up as we know this cacher maintains his caches VERY well and plus, it was supposed to have a red jeep in it. I looked in a microwave for the cache,not here! Old boot? Nope. Bucket half full of concrete? nope. Lets look on the other side of the parking area, GPS might be off... "Mom whats up with all for those sugar packets? "( they were condom wrappers for the record,lots of condom wrappers.) "I don't know babe lets just keep moving"...Note to self at least she missed the female hygine bottle there...where is this cache? "Wow, mom look! Two beds!?! In the woods...weird!" "Lets head back towards the Jeep,I don't thenk this cache is here."(And I don't want to know what else is...trip...wait,what is that? Oh,yuk and adult battery operated toy. Thank havens she did NOT see that!) On the way out I saw a VCR a tape of Pretty woman Lots of bottles and a burger take out box."Tim? Lets call this one a DNF Its pretty gross here." Oh, plus a nice news letter put out by a local "cult type" church who's leader is currently serving time for "crimes agianst a minor"...did it happen here? I wonder, yuk. And the best part yet I HAD THE WRONG coord's in BOTH gps's.fun...

At a cache site in Pocatello found a hypo needle and a dumped out kitty litter box. Needless to say I passed after that.

 

Speaking of hypos found another nearby a cache site here in Reno, on a crappy day for reception. Cache was actually across the street from where I was. Took the hypo and burned it.

 

This weekend we passed by a homeless camp that had been struck in the parking lot of a closed bank, also close to aforementioned cache. This not a hundred yards from Condos we're considering to buy. :D

Hi all, newbie here. Today was only our third time out caching and on the way to our third cache we were greeted in the trail by someone's feces and used toilet paper-very nice. Even better though, in the parking area for our fourth cache my 12 yr old sees a used condom by my driver rear wheel. This is a residential road that dead ends at a desert mountain rec area. Thank God my 8 yr old didn't notice.

Found the remains of 6 dumped deer carcasses underneath a bridge today. It was pretty disgusting.

 

As a hunter, I find that disgusting as well, and think there is no excuse for that. I would suggest that you contact your state's Fish & Wildlife Service so they can alert the ranger/game warden over the local area. They should be able to arrange removal of the carcasses and may also open an investigation into the incident.

My caching partner, smilz787, and I were looking for the first part of a 10-part multicache this past week. Our GPS' were going haywire on either side of a wooden fence, so she went to search one side, while I kept searching on the other. All of a sudden she screamed "found it!". Unfortunately what she found, so delicately wrapped up in two plastic bags and held together by a rubberband, was someone's collection of 12 porn DVDs....not just run-of-the-mill porn, but SHE-MALE porn!!! :D

 

We eventually found the actual first part of the multi, but gave the cache owner a hard time about finding the stash from his "other" hobby. :D

At the begining of bow season here in Michigan I was hunting a cache on state land.(GC15QW6) I was lookind down at my GPSr and didn't notice that I was standing a few feet from a live injured doe. I called the DNR and they said they would send someone out. Apparently they did not. As I was getting the cache # I saw this log from 12 days later.

 

"TFTC!

Note: for anyone planning on doing this cache in the next few days with children or weak stomachs; there was a decaying deer about 25 yards away from this cache. I am contacting DNR as it was just off the walking trail."

In one of the parks I cached in today, I found a $10 bill, two singles, a knife, and a bottle of fish hooks, plus some other stuff I just trashed out. Must have been a swell party last night. Stopped for a free dinner on the way home! :)

Centennial, CO. Out looking for the beginning coords for a multi when I turned over a rock and found what appeared to be a log book. Inside 5 bags I finally uncovered a dozen adult themed dvd's! How strange to find someones stash outdoors under a rock! :)

Found a dildo today. See cache GC1B59 for my writeup.

I wonder if that's the same person that left one near GCMH0P? Here's my log entry of my journey through this area which was heavily in need of a CITO event, along with one shortly afterwards ...

 

:yikes: February 15, 2007 by ePeterso2 (538 found)

[...] While climbing down the bank of the canal, I had to step over a "personal entertainment device for women". I didn't have my rubber gloves with me, so I was afraid to CITO it. How the heck a thing like that would end up a place like this makes my head spin.

 

:( February 23, 2007 by TinSparrow (4733 found)

[...] I did not see the recently spotted "personal entertainment device for women" near the cache. It's probably just as well, since Valentine's Day has already passed so the opportinities to regift it this year are less. Thanks for the cache.

From Wikipedia:

 

DID YOU KNOW? Glass "bottle trees" originated in Northern Africa during a period when superstitious people believed that a genii or imp could be captured in a glass bottle. Legend had it that empty glass bottles placed outside the home could "capture" roving (usually evil) spirits at night, and the spirit would be destroyed the next day in the sunshine. This practice was taken to Europe and North America by African slaves. While Europeans adapted them into hollow glass spheres known as "witch balls" the practice of hanging bottles in trees became widespread in the Southern states of North America, where they continue to be used today as colorful garden ornaments.

 

Well, in the spirit of odd trees:

Inorite? :blink:

In Mississippi they also say the blue bottles catch the most spirits.

While doing a local Wherigo cache, which involves walking along a road on a very tall / steep dam at the lake, I stumbled upon a couple of brand new fishing weights. Took a few more steps, found a few more. And another...

 

All in all I filled one front pants pocket with weights. Not sure how they got there as there is no place near enough to the water to fish, and the sides of the dam are no trespassing areas as well.

Couple years ago, we were walking through the state park in Ripon, Ca after a cache. My wife pointed out how the jungle plants looked like pot plants.

 

Found same along a trail near Dana Point, GCHZPD:

 

Date of the Log was 9/9/2007.

Looks like u guys haven't really experienced "strange" things on your way to caches. My group of friends and me went today for a geocaching hunt in a huge park in Madrid, Spain today and we stumbled upon a dead body...a naked dead body. we had to call the cops (who took 30 min to arrive) and give some statements. then we went on to our geohunting ;))

epic day :))

We stumbled across a pair of boxer shorts hung in a bush on the way to one cache. Snapped a crappy photo with the camera phone, but I can't seem to locate it right now.

We were caching in an urban area nearby when we found the remainder (probably about a quarter left) of a joint IN the cache. It was a keyholder cache under a lampost skirt. Near the cache, still under the skirt, was a large package of peanuts. Luckily, I had another bag for the log and was able to dispose of the illegal contents and replace the log. I left the peanuts although I figure that whomever they were meant for may not really need them now for a case of the muchies!

The funniest part is that I have met the cache owner and she is the very proper wife of a minister. I'm sure she was horrified when she read that log!

In a cemetery I (and numerous cachers before me) found a cow's tongue with a dozen safety pins stuck in it. It didn't look professionally butchered but more like it had been ripped out of the cow's mouth. Kind of creepy to find that in a cemetery ten feet from the cache.

 

Another time I found a dead owl that had been something else's dinner on a pedestrian path to a scenic bridge in the Angeles National Forest.

A handmade wooden baby's rattle, on the ground in the bush on the way to the cache. Snakes- yeah, well those are dime a dozen here in north Queensland. We see them frequently while caching, but had a very close encounter in the dark once finding a cache- that wasn't fun.

When three friends and I went for our first cache a month and a half ago, we stumbled upon a backpack with a hookah in it... a very nice looking one at that!

 

Ever since then, geocaching just hasn't been the same...

I was on a picnic with family when some guy walked up the road from further in the forest preserve and threw this thing in the trash can, got in a car and left.

Another photo: Sailfish

Closer: Fish 2

I have no idea why they were carrying this out of a forest preserve or what exactly it is for (what's with the handle?) If it was in better shape I would have taken it home to turn into a cache. The swordfish-like "bill" was pretty much intact too, but I didn't get a photo of the head.

I have found many odd things while caching in the area. Some of the most memorable were a dead carcass of a deer with it's head cut off, cans of beer at several different locations and different denominations of money. A friend found a portable DVD player with some porno in it just a few feet from a cache. One of the strangest though, was a "hair cache'. A new cache had come out in the area and, as usual, the rush to get FTF was on. The first person on the scene found what he thought was the cache and dropped a few coins in. When the rest of the FTF group showed up to find the cache they didn't see his coins....or his signature on the log. Then they found the "hair cache" close by. There was a note inside the container stating that it was a hair cache and that anyone finding it should cut off some of their hair and place it into the container. It was definately creepy. The first FTFer went back and took the coins out of the hair cache, placed them into the actual cache and filed a new log. Eventually the hair cache was disposed of.

 

You never know what you are going to find while engaged in the hunt.

A cacher took a picture of this little guy near one of my caches. I don't think he was doing very well. :D

If you like to read, I just started a book with an interesting twist on this thread's topic. It's called Abomination by Colleen Coble, where a killer leaves...parts...near a cache he hides.

Shortly after I started caching last month, I took my boss out for a hunt. While walking through the public park, we came across a grouping of 4 or 5 trees where we found a pair of trousers draped over a tree branch, a broken belt buckle 5 feet away, and in the middle a large depression in the ground about 5 feet across... anyone else seen the 'Tremors' movie series?

 

Later on we found what appeared to be an apron or summer dress of sorts hanging torn from a tree branch. Again, this was in a grouping of trees with a 5 foot wide depression in the ground. Needless to say I climbed a tree and didn't want to get down. <_<

 

I also found a cache intentionally hidden by a mostly buried car out in the middle of nowhere, no roads or paths for a car. Combine this with rusted out innards and tires strewn about and it's a fairly interesting night cache.
