The experience of founding a geocache was a lot more fun the placing one. I love the idea of going to a location and trying to find something. It reminds me of the childhood find the object books. A group of art classmates and I went to find a geocache labeled: State Vs Federal. Which is a geocache located between the Veteran Affairs Hospital and our campus. There was a hint that said it was in a murky water. Funny enough, it was found inside a tree in murky water! We all wrote our names down! However, placing one was not as fun. I put a bass pick (as I play Bass) as a trinket in an Altoids Can. I decided to place it under a lamp post. I used the hint that the location was enlightening. I believe the fact that people cannot understand longitude and latitude purports a certain idea that there is a “muggle” and “wizard” differentiation. Maybe, this makes geocachers have a sense of pride. However, with a sense of pride it can come off as an impertinent attitude. As if they are higher then regular people. However, I still believe geocaching is a cool hobby and activity to do. I certainly had an enjoyable time doing it.
My Cache is somewhere enlightening…
