Just received this log in my email....made me go hmmmmmm.....with only 187 finds and only 23 in Maine....the numbers just don't work. Question is....how in the world did this happen, and what cache DID they find?

My first guess was the physical cache at Delorme, "EARTHA'S CACHE (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=443873) (GCXNND) by hoamdezinahs (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/default.asp?A=362472) (2/2)

A few weeks ago, I got a watchlist email on You Sank My Battleship, which by the log I was quite certian it was logged by mistake. I was about to send an email when I realized it was a You Sank My Battleship clone which is in England, found by someone in England, not my own cache. That could have been emabarrassing!

LOL I have to admit that I was a bit surprised to see this pop up and I also sent an email to Team Teebow.:D

I sent a mail to captain&frenchy indicating that they had not properly completed the challenge and that I would be deleting their log, I never heard back from them. I think they REALLY meant to log the virtual cache and not the DeLorme Challenge.
