Geocaching Caption Contest 7 – Win a Barely Coveted Prize

Winning Caption: “Thank you, Great cache, took Geocoin, left old man in the woods unable to walk” – slicksps

This is the seventh installment of our Geocaching Caption Contest. Here’s a little background to help mold your hilarious captions.  According to the geocacher pictured, dova dov, this photo was taken at the Washington State Project APE Cache Mission 9: Tunnel of Light GC1169. He attached a Travel Bug to the cane.

What caption would you write for this photo?  “I didn’t know the cane was electrified.”

You can do better.  The winner receives these barely coveted Trail Cards I found in my desk. Please include your geocaching username in all entries.

Barely Coveted Prize

The winner will be chosen by an ad hoc committee of Lackeys.

18 Lackeys voted to crown the winner of the sixth Geocaching Caption Contest.  Take a look at the post to see who won.  Explore the wit and wisdom of geocachers by checking out all the Geocaching Caption Contests.

    To get credit for this Earthcache, submit a photo of you next to the petrified human. The top of your head must be level with the cane, if not your log will be deleted.
