OK, you already know I am a little bit nuts anyway but check out the log for the cache I did this morning. "Who pulled the plug? (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=d3b07c25-49f6-4fef-98a6-cc9ce802b873)" (GCHQGB)

Anyone else done something crazy to get to a cache?

I bought a kayak on a whim specifically to get to a single cache I had just found in my GPS while driving past it, even though I already had a perfectly good kayak at home. Does that count?

LOL!! LaughingTerry, that has to take the cake for craziest thing I've read of someone doing to get a cache!! Thank goodness you didn't post any pics...

We've done a couple crazy caches, probably most notable was Bradley's Bottom (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=ee9a2a83-a38c-4b0c-bb43-22134231960b). The other crazy one is a log submitted for the Mt. Agamenticus Geocaching Event (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=61543b4b-45b4-4cbb-8daa-1ed236561246) so I won't disclose it here. But we've never crossed the line of public decency or potential humiliation!! :D

That was great . . . thanks for sharing Terry . . . and thank you for not sharing too much.

By the way, do rubber chickens shrink in cold water? :D

This story reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George loses his swimsuit and blames his "small display" on the fact that the water was really cold:D :D :D
I can see the cops showing up. There you are, no clothes holding a rubber chicken. That would make the papers!
Thanks for the laugh today. It takes a brave man to post that adventure.

Todays adventure wasn't that extreme but I did have to climb 30ft up into an old pine tree for the cache. I have pictures of the cache up in the tree I'll post later when I can upload them.

All in all today was a good day. 12 for 12 and the last one was the one I DNFd on yesterday. I hope to hit 10 or 12 again tomorrow morning.

It was Massachusettes anyway. LOL

Actually I didn't see any "No Swimming" signs or I wouldn't have done it.

Actually, if you drink Aquafina, it comes from a public water supply in Massachusetts! :( :(

Ummmm... were you naked up in the pine tree as well? :rolleyes: Now that's extreme!
We wouldn't bat an eye at tree climbing, but the naked thing? You take the cake... the pie... heck, the whole dang bakery! Lol! :D

No, I didn't have to be naked to climb the tree. LOL I generally avoid getting naked outdoors but I really didn't want to leave a cache unfound in that park since I won't be back to this area for some time.
