The greatest cathartic moment in my enjoyment of geocaching came the moment that I realized that if a particular type of cache doesn’t suit my fancy, I am under absolutely no obligation to go out and find the cache. There are 23 caches within two miles of my home. I have only found three of them. Of the unfound ones, two are regular traditionals, one is a regular multi, three are small traditionals and the rest are micros of some variation of multi, puzzle or traditional. Within 5 miles, there are 138 caches and I have only found or placed 9 of them. — Markwell
Geocaching augments reality in a different way. It adds a layer of the magical to the mundane.

Never mess with a geocacher. We know all the best places to hide a body.
Which is worse: ignorance or apathy? Who knows? Who cares?

The best thing about geocaching is that anyone can play.
The worst thing about geocaching is…that anyone can play!
“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”
– J.R.R. Tolkein
I can’t lie around and be lazy. I am a Thing-Finder,
and when you’re a Thing-Finder you don’t have a minute to spare…
The whole world is full of things, and somebody has to look for them.

Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always can do that but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
