ook! Groundspeak announced that August was going to be the “31 days of Geocaching” or some other clever marketing tagline to get people excited. It seems that every day you log a cache you get a special souvenir for the day, and if you get all 31 you get an even specialer souvenir. All for just keeping a streak going for 31 days. I decided to do this thing, not try to do it but to do it because some green muppet said “Do or do not, there is no try” then again maybe he said “Easy it is not being green.” So starting out on August first I began my long trek to finally beat my personal record of 2 days in a row! It hasn’t been easy, with the start of school and my driver being waylaid with his other job, but I’ve done it. Well, as I have been getting some nice caches (thanks to those cache owners who have maintained their hides) but I started noticing something that really has gotten me upset- Time travel caching.
It seems that some morally upstanding members of the Indiana Geocaching Community are using time travel to find and log caches! What else would explain people dating their logs for days that haven’t occurred yet? What upsets me is I’m still working on perfecting time travel and someone out there has the secret and isn’t sharing!
Wait, are you saying that there might be people out there purposely putting down a future date on their log so they can claim that they have actually found a cache for every day in August when they really just found 31 caches in one day? NO! That would never happen, no one in the geocaching community is that low, that untrustworthy, that desperate for recognition. No one is STUPID enough to think that we, as geocachers, really care that much about the bunch of pixels that make up a souvenir to lie. True Geocachers do not lie (unless the logging instructions at the cache ask us to). Therefore the only reasonable answer to what has been observed is time travel. So now I need to track this person down and steal their device- then the world is mine, along with a find on February 29th, and a whole lot of FTFs!
