If I wanted a decoy at one of my caches I would leave one there. Confused

Unless the dude is being a cache maggot and stealing your stuff, I don't see anything to get worked up about. It is strange though. But until he actually becomes a thief, don't sweat it.

I wonder if Surfer Joe is monitoring this thread and what he would think of this. Has anyone attempted to find the cache yet? Tooooo far away for me.

Ok, I am now convinced that this dude is getting ready for some kind of Halloween prank, and it might be a sock puppet that might be one of us.

Yeah, where was the FTF party? It was just me and SID.

I was apprehensive about going after the cache but figured someone else would show up. I won't give anything away but it seems harmless enough.

Maybe it got a bit blown out of proportion. Sharknose Bunnies' story was so compelling, I was starting to think (spuke) was some shadowy X-Files-esque organization plotting world domination. Guess it's just some random cacher with too much time on his/her hands. That is to say, even more time on his/her hands than the rest of us who are discussing it. Very Happy

Shocked We have another joker or maybe the same person. Shocked

Someone named The Phantom Mullet just logged a note on one of my hides that made no sense. It Just said B is for Bloomington. The cache is http://coord.info/GC2GDY3 I checked the persons profile and it's new with no cache and no hides.

I'm guessing the more you guys talk about it here the more it's going to happen. These people (or this person) is looking for a show and you're giving it to them.

Shocked Ok I had to check on this cache and was not happy at what I found. The original log was replaced with what looked like a log from another cache. I now understand why people have been logging that there was something strange about the log. I deleted the strange note on the cache page and left one of my own.

I wish people would stop playing these silly games, this is no fun. Sad

(Spuke) logged on my Centennial Lakes 3 cache shortly after I published it. I figured it was somebody who thought that I was stupid for hiding it in the same spot as the previous one, as all (Spuke) said was "Boo". In response to rustynails' post about his cache, I was in the STF party and the log was already weird, and the FTF party had signed that log as well, so I don't know when the switch would have been made. It is really strange though. On a different note, I kinda want to get (Spuke)'s cache...anyone care to join me?

I wonder if it has anything to do with the "B" is for Bloomington cache located just to the west.... at the Bloomington Ice Garden...
