FTF #53: A Bad Habit #4

Min FTF-lista tickade upp med +1 ^_^

Denna gången så var det ärligt talat mer än gåva från andra geocachare än en riktig FTF, eftersom jag hade cirka 10 meter / 30 sekunder kvar till cachen när ett annat gäng plockade fram gömman. Men de var väldigt trevliga och delade på FTF:en. Tack!

Tricket var att fyra cacher publicerats en tid innan, och flera cachare insåg att det var bäst att satsa på den sist publicerade för att andra FTF-jägare som startat tidigt kanske inte hunnit till den. Så något jag aldrig sett tidigare – två olika lag (totalt 5 personer) stressar till fot samtigt fram mot gömman, med bara några meter mellan varandra, osså kör en bil in ut ur den kutar det ut geocachare och hinner lägga handen på cachen precis innan fotgängarna hinner fram. Helt hysteriskt med 7 personer som kommer fram till gömman inom loppet av en minut 🙂


First To Finds:

  • 2013-04-02Found: FTF #53, A Bad Habit #4. Shared FTF, but honestly I (and a minor army of geocachers) were about 10 meters away when the cache was found, everyone descended upon it at almost the same time, three different teams converging simultaneously – that’s a first. The guys who were a few meters ahead were extremely nice and counted it as shared, so this FTF was kind-of a gift rather than my own success. Great thanks guys ^_^
  • 2013-03-12Found: FTF #52, Invisible ink. Mystery published while we were in the woods far away, managed to return to base camp, obtain stuff for solving cache, realize others have already solved the geochecker, buy hamburgers, eat crap food, fix free internet, solve mystery, go to cache and log it about 70 minutes after publication, and be first to find / log.
  • 2012-05-29Found: FTF #51, Kossan. Another insanely lucky FTF! We were eating pizza 300 meters from the cache was published! Quickly ate up, paid for our food, and jumped into the car and stopped next to the cache. Logged about 6 minutes after publication.
  • 2012-04-04Found: FTF #50, Biografer i och runt Haga. It was unreal – the cache was published in 300meters (flight path, ~500m street walk) from my position. I ran like mad and set a new personal record, FTF only four minutes after publication!

  • 2010-11-28Found: FTF #42, Frölunda Torg – Cityhusen with MPLL and Bgel. I was so far, far away when the cache was published, so it was a pure miracle that I could be in the FTF 65 minutes after publication (in an area where FTF occurs in 8 – 30 minutes, usually).
  • 2010-09-06Found: FTF #41, DBJL – Fotbollsplanen. 275m away on an oh so failed FTF hunt, plauged by dreaded STF’s and worse. But then this was published, I was at the nearest cache, and I ran like mad. A glorious FTF was my reward!

  • 2010-08-21Found: FTF #37, Bridge…. Woke early and checked phone ”uhm, a new geocache published in the night?” after some walking/running I managed to grab FTF 07:07. Early bird catches the worm!
  • 2010-06-06Found: FTF #36, Pennygången. Photo-logg 06:47 – aborted opening due to container potentially dangerous (possibly not geocache), IRL-logg 13:10 after owner marked the container as safe with a geocaching logotype. Shared FTF with the explorist, first geocacher to actually opening the cache after verified as cache/dummy.

  • 2009-12-13Found: FTF #30, Doors and numbers. 14 hours after today’s first FTF, it was time for my second FTF this day. Geocachers were all over possible locations of Doors and Numbers, but 8 people met at one location and decided which ”educated guess” to attempt next, and converged on target. And finally the empty log book was ours to sign! Together with McB, TimTim Go, mbit, Kusin, Ninjatummen, TheHeimat and Benrangel
