    Default New Type of Muggle Activity

    I received the following e-mail regarding my PNORYN'S cache. I am replacing the log this weekend and will keep you updated if there are further problems.


    GEO] Eight Foot Llama contacting lexmano from Geocaching.com‏ From: <img id="P___1364760741" webimdisplaystyle="inline" style="display: none;"> Geocaching (noreply@geocaching.com) Sent: Thu 5/28/09 5:08 PM To: ebayfiend@hotmail.com Hi there,

    I found your "PNORYN's" cache on May 22. It was a film canister under a lamppost skirt.

    Inside was a 8.5x11 sheet of paper, folded up about a million times. There were no log signatures on it. On the back was a computer printed message which said:

    "Congratulations, you have found a GEOCACHE!
    Now, let's see if you can find a life.
    You <blanking> nerd!"

    So unless I am missing something, it looks like a muggle is messing with your cache.

    I left everything as-is.

    Take care,
    Jim / 8FL


    I am a little confused by the muggle's sentiments. Geocaching is not a life?!

    hehe, well how sad is that, that someone has nothing to do than go around and tell people they have no life.... what kind of life is that??? I'll take geocaching over that.

    besides, deep down they're probably just jealous of how cool we are.

    The muggles statement leaves me alot perplexed. Who needs to find a life? I think it is hilarious that the muggle would steal the cache, go through all the effort to write and place a note in it and re hide it. Wish the muggles of my caches were as considerate.

    Geez . . . I'm not sure what I would do if I found a life . . . I mean trading a life for a bouncy ball or carabiner doesn't seem like a very fair trade.

    Obviously the writer was jealous. Maybe he had the same PN-40 issues that I did and lost his mind!!

    I guess we can all be just tiny happy that he was just a little bit creative and didn't pee in it.

    Like just happened to one of mine. I guess that one is going to have to go since a local muggle has nothing better to do than put bait in it, steal the log, pee in it. Talk about "get a life" LOL

    I spent evenings for almost TWO WEEKS looking for a Laughing Terry cache. How in the heck did a muggle find one and find time to pee in one. I think I need to make more sacrifice to the great god of geocaching.
