My quick guess, based on the handwriting, is that it's a male, between 40 and 55 years old. Take special notice as how the letter "f" is written. Also, note that the "1st Finder!" handwriting at the top is likely Good-Boy's, so it shouldn't be considered part of the sample.

The rest of a lot of it is personality stuff which likely won't help much, such as spastic capitalization at the beginning of words, drawing the "a" always as a capital, the inability to write a "k" that looks lowercase, and letters that lean both left and right. Of course, some of this may have to do with the fact he was probably very cold. The smiley drives me nuts on it too.

Too bad it wasn't a tight architectural script, or I'd know it's Moe the Sleeze right away. Moe - where did you pick that up anyway? Your carrer? Perhaps a high school drafting class?

Why do I get the feeling we are going to see a lot more of FTF not being logged just to tick u off and give us clues?

Better go back and check for footprints and fingerprints.......

And we were worried about coming up with a new game to do while Geocaching Wink

We thought the footprints were ArcticAbn's actually. Doesn't match the handwriting, though... and he wouldn't do that to us. =) We should have taken a sample of the footprints. I'm guessing around US size 11 winter boots.

It wasn't Arcticabn because he would not have come in and gone out the way he did. I know exactly where he would have parked and you and I would not have seen the prints until we were at the first stage... They would have come in from the left if our backs were to the hill.

The person probably owns a Magellan unit or a higher end Garmin (76S) that automatically sets the Magnetic North declinations as he found the final in 30 seconds. Kitch was able to locate the final with precision accuracy even with his not being like Good-Boy's "blinging" color Magellan.

If I wasn't so damn tired from non-stop caching w/Aaron and you I would probably go out and check the log book on that one.

If I had to guess, I'd guess its "GPSFree", who I also believe logged the anonymous FTF at "Rotary Rest Stop". But thats just pure speculation. Bob, you have a log with a sample of his handwriting...

OTOH, if I was going to pull one like this, I'd write with my left hand and really keep them guessing.

Bingo! Junior high actually. Although when I go back and look at samples of my father's printing, it was surprisingly similar.

I didn't even think of that because he logged his name at River Hills Huff and Ruff just never online... It breaks Aaron's theory that he is in his 40's. This guy was more in his mid to late 20s.

That was just a guess. RickRich makes a good point I think as well. If he was really interested in making a game out of this, he'd be using his left hand in the logs. Perhaps he just doesn't want to log on the site. =) Either way, we'll find him.

Sorry, but it wasn't me. I have not attempted this cache yet. Was planning to attack it with SB and S4xton the other day but they started out to late in the evening.

No of course I am a little pissed at you Arron. You spend 4 hours roaming around trying to find this one multicache point but you haven't done GKC yet. I'm insulted.

Bob, if you recall according to Kitch someone did deface Cache 1 on GKC. Don't know if they ever found the last point. I haven't wanted to pull cache maintenance on it in this deep snow for fear of leaving tracks right up to it and ruining the challenge.

I did this cache before GKC only because SilentBob asked me to come with to try to be FTF the day of, and I said yes. It had nothing to do wanting or not wanting to do a particular one first. Lately I've been caching with people that have already done it, so I'll have to do it when I'm caching by myself or with a friend that hasn't done it yet. No reason to be insulted... I'm sorry if me doing this one first came off the wrong way, it certianly wasn't intended as so.

Damn Aaron, I guess I'm going to have to start using a bunch of Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing so you know when I'm pulling your leg. I would think that after a 9 hour 31 cache day you might know me a little better then that.

You'll get around to it eventually.

By the way SB that leather item that Tuit on it was just that. "A Round Tuit".
