Geocaching Caption Contest 13 – Win a Barely Coveted Prize

Winning Caption: If you hold it to your ear you can hear all the screams from the frustrated FTFs.- Oakfire

Your vote helps decide who takes home the barely coveted prize.  Read the captions.  “Like” the one you think should win.  If you think your caption should win, tell (bribe) friends and strangers to vote for you.  Lackeys will then vote on the top captions to crown the winner of this Geocaching Caption Contest.

This is the thirteenth installment of our Geocaching Caption Contest.   The photo captures the joy (and more likely frustration) of finding a micro cache.  What caption would you write? “Does the snail get the FTF?.” You can do better than that.

The winner receives a barely coveted prize of a single Cache In Trash Out pin.

Barely coveted prize

    Updating the nanos coordinates every 6 months turned out to be the most annoying part of this cache.

  • coinzero “Steven Lewis”

    “Site was covered with muggles on this awesomely sunny day! Can’t blame’em! Had to leave and come back with my metal detector as cover. Thankfully this nano had just enough metal for my detector to read it’s minimal presence and no one was the wiser. Signed log, found 2 gold rings, and a coin for the 1900′s. Wootwoot cashe4ever!”

  • Danny wright/ Danny123456789

    “Finally,” the snail thought, “I can finally go out and get a gps to locate my new shell. I hope it’s not a cache.” The snail is going to be upset. At least he gets a FTF for his troubles.

  • bill&vi

    Yup,Yup Faster than a speeding bullet,can do 0-6 feet in 5 days.When someone comes near I spin around like a top like a playful Puppy and happily slither over and show them where the cache is.Only had one problem so far and that was with Pierre the french chef who thought I looked delectable.
