600 Hidden Plastic Jars

Logged my 600th geocache this bright May morning, took a picture of a treehouse ruin near the cache, then drove home listening to the Nashville Pussy. After lunch, me and the Rundkvist ladies took part in the annual street cleaning & planting day. I headed the cleaning of two sandboxes, cleared shrubbery that was engulfing one of the boxes and collected trash in the parking lot and front door bays. Unlike Blaine Cartwright, I am not lazy.

Lazy White Boy
By Blaine Cartwright of the Nashville Pussy

Got rhythm, just too cool to show it
Got a future, can’t wait to blow it
Sit around getting high all day
Don’t let work get in my way
Ain’t no doubt, my mama raised

A lazy white boy
A lazy white boy

Went broke growing tobacco
I’m a juiced-up hillbilly
Not some dried-up cracker
A bag of weed, a six-pack of Bud
I’m like a pig in my own mud
Hey there man, it’s in my blood

I’m a lazy white boy
Lazy white boy

If things don’t turn my way
I’ll sit and think of ways to make y’all pay
I’ll smack the world’s mouth
If I ever get off this couch

Got rhythm, just too cool to show it
Got a future, can’t wait to blow it
Sit around getting high all day
Don’t let work get in my way
Ain’t no doubt, my mama raised

A lazy white boy
A lazy white boy

Ain’t got the energy to even spit
Too tired to butter my own grits
Here’s a song for us who don’t do shit

I’m a lazy white boy
Lazy white boy

    My wife and I just bought our first GPS yesterday. She was sort of ambivalent about the purchase until I mentioned Geocaching, and then she became very enthusiastic. Now I’m looking forward to a fun new hobby and trying to read just about anything I can find on the internet to get us started. 600 is a lot of caches!

    It’s a remarkably addictive hobby that takes you to countless interesting places. Also, it offers a lot of opportunity for socialising and friendly correspondence. Very likely, there’s a phone list for your area with people who are willing to act as emergency help when you’re standing in the woods without a clue.

    I’m sorry, I can’t help but feel that geocaching is just high-tech littering.

    Littering? To begin with, the caches are hidden, and so do not create a littered landscape. Secondly, they are not very many: a few thousand in all of Sweden. There are generally more than a thousand pieces of real litter in a single park at any one time. Thirdly, geocachers practice something called Cache In, Trash Out, which means that the net effect of caching is de-littering.
