Saw this on GCMA1K, a event cache in New Jersey. Based on my answers I may need help.

1. Do you take your GPS everywhere you go?
2. Do you lie in bed, thinking about the cache you DNFed?
3. Do you take an alternate routes to work?
4. Have you visited a $1.00 store twice in the past week?
5. Do you get excited when you see the rubbermaid aisle at the grocery store?
6. Has your ZIP lock bag consumption gone up 3000%?
7. Have you tried to convince a non-geocacher that geocaching is cool?
8. Do you visit in-laws when a new cache pops up near their home?
9. Do you buy mints and eat them by the fistful just to empty the container?
10. Do you have your own rubber stamp?
11. Have you ever used your GPS unit like a cell phone to avoid suspicion?
12. Is your daughter named Garmin?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be addicted to Geocaching. But have no fear, there is help for you. Come and attend the geocaching gathering where you can meet others like you.

I laughed when I read the one about visiting the dollar store.....

My wife, (who ACTS as if she is not interested in geocaching) recently bought a whole bag full of "trinkets" from our local dollar store. Very Happy

(I see the signs of addiction in her but she is still in the DENIAL stage) Shocked

My wife likes to bargain shop at Goodwill and Savers, and I've been tagging along for the past couple of years just to look for geocaching stuff. And I've never had any interest in going to an Axman store until I started caching--right now, I have a couple of failed pog-tube and spray-foam-insulation experiments stuck to the work bench in the garage that I still need to go clean up sometime.

I could use the opionion of different cachers. I am working on a series of caches and as a FTF bonus for finishing I am going to get a Tshirt with a list of "you might be a geocacher" with FTF in large letters and the name and location on the front. I have compiled a list of over 80 different if's and would like to narrow it down to 15 to 25. If you are willing to help with this please go to the following web page. I have a link to my email and your opion is needed. Thank you inadvance to all who help.

sorry kidatheart, you are asking the impossible. That is a great list, I can't even possibly pick just 10 Laughing

I am just hoping that I can narrow it down. Everytime I read the list i smile Very Happy , laugh Laughing and think, that is starting to apply to me Wink If you can give me any direction on some of the ones to use for the FTF shirt it would help me, I do have a number of favorites, but I also want to have the FTF tshirt reflect some from the Geocaching community. Hope to launch a multi stage or possible a group of caches in the Red Wing area in a month or two but need to work on the GPS location and setting up the containers or as my son likes to call them the "treasures" Cool

Just pull 25 for tee shirt #1. Then pull 25 for #2. Then then 25 for cache 3. Etc.

That's actually a great idea! If you were selling them people would buy all three Wink
