    Default Caches (most of us) wouldn't visit

    On a whim I started looking for caches in other countrys..
    Seems theres almost 70 in IRAQ!!
    17 have shown for Afghanistan!!
    And 15 on the list in Antarctica!!
    Most of them look like quite the challenge given the circumstances.
    Road trip anyone??

    I checked on Iraq and Afganistan just a few months ago and there were just a few caches in those countries.

    I guess it means that the situation is getting better if people are putting out geocaches!

    Hmmm . . . caches in Iraq. Would make things a whole lot more interesting for those of us who routinely poke sticks into holes looking for a cache. In Iraq you could poke a stick into a hole looking for a cache and find an IED, scorpion, cache or even Saddam Hussein.

    Do you suppose somewhere out that Osama is the FTF prize in another geocache?

    Don't forget the infamous 'The Rapture of the Deep' - (Scuba MultiCache) (GC4B96) by The Artful Dodger (5/5), which after being placed 4/10/2002 is still waiting for that FTF...
