SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 173

What is a Nemesis Geocache?

Get as much information about the geocache
Take in account the title, description, hint, get inside the head of the CO – what is their MO?

Do you have a nemesis cache that despite multiple attempts you have been unable to find? Do you make a list? How long is it?

Best examples of a nemesis cache
Too many to count

How many times do you go back?
Same day / or in a single visit

DNF forever or keep at it?

People forcing their way in and it’s impact.
Andreas wrote:
oh, what bad memories… people using force just get their log…
as far as i remember, the owner gave up the struggle with the vandalism after a few months.

Now it’s personal. Time for a PAF or MAF
The DOH Factor when you find it.
Really embarrassing or a huge relief?
