Title: April 1st

 What's going on (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=24b3b988-4a2c-4c24-9da7-8d2a51f8fe2d)

I really can't be bothered to decide what is going on here, perhaps someone could tell me if these finds are permanent or not.

First I have seen of these. Hopefully the finds are not permanent. Armchair logging to get 5/5s, hmm.

I'm really surprised at Groundspeak, encouraging Armchair Logging...  :o

Hope all those that have logged a Found it! get a ban!



 ;D

We decided Jersey, "the warmest place in the British Isles", was a finer choice  ;D

Signal's Time Machine (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=cbc269f0-b186-48c2-814c-716a19fb5935)

"Out caching with Wacky races. We'd been building a time machine since 2000, and it was finally completed last night. We decided to test it today and travel back to 2010, when we were at a caching peak, where we found the cache - really well hidden! Next we went back to 2000 to see this cache being hidden, where we thanked the CO personally for the hide.

Now we're safely back in 2013 and can officially say our time machine works, and that it's likely to put shame to Signal's - we didn't need his, good old homemade!

TFTC, our first find in Jersey. "

And Wacky races' log:

"Found this cache with Griff Grof.
We had been building a time machine for years, however the size needs modifying!
we found this cache in the year 2010 and then we went back and saw the Original Cache being hidden!"

Wonder how long they will last  :D Bet everything will be wiped by tomorrow!   :o

Aangezien 1 april in sommige tijdszones voorbij is, is de grap nu ook wel over.
Zoals altijd is een geldige log van een fysieke cache is een log die in een fysiek logboekje staat.
Alle 403 logs zullen daarom worden verwijderd. Dank voor alle leuke reacties.

Since April 1st in some time zones is over, the joke is known about.
As always, a valid log of a physical cache is a log in a physical logbook.
Therefore, all 403 logs will be removed. Thanks for all the nice comments.

Thanks,

I wonder if anyone actually went to the physical co-ords to look for the cache.
