You Know You’re Addicted • Nov 09, 2007
We woke up this morning with a feeling of grave agitation and high anxiety. Our hands were shaking, our eyes were watery and we had a driving desire to go outside. After a few minutes of searching our symptoms on the Internet we quickly found that we were suffering from “Obsessive Compulsive Cache Craving Syndrome” or OCCCS. There is no question, we are addicted to Geocaching!
You know that you are addicted to Geocaching when:
… a colleague brings out their Tupperware lunch box and you automatically reach for your pen to sign the log book.
… you can’t walk down a path without thinking, “Hmmm, that’ll be a good place for a cache!”.
… you type in your home co-ords and not the phone number.
… your idea of decorating the Christmas tree is to conceal all the presents at its foot, beneath a camo covering of tinsel.
… your idea of gift-giving is to hide the gifts in the garden with co-ords and a clue.
… you are watching TV and think “That’s a beautiful place, I wonder where the nearest cache is?’”
