Being a geocacher can sometimes feel like riding an emotional rollarcoaster. From the joy of being first to find, to the frustration that comes with your fourth DNF on the same cache; the range of emotions is immense.
Here is my list of some of the emotions we can feel when playing this game. What would you add?
1. DNF Dejection
2. Trackable Regret
3. FTF Elation
4. Hand-in-Hollow Trepidation
5. Soggy Log Disgust
6. STF Resentment
7. Easy Find Optimism
8. Puzzle Irritation
9. Night Cache Fear
10. Forgotten Pen Shame
11. High D/T Pride
I’m sure there are many more I haven’t listed. What have I missed? Let me know in the comments!

The Basil Fawlty-like frustration when you’re running for an FTF and you realize your GPS has brought you to the wrong side of a river/ ravine/ railway line and you have to detour 4 miles to get to the right side- even though the cache is only 150 metres away… 😉
Rubbish Revulsion–the feeling you get when what should be a lovely spot and a fun find is spoilt and DNFed because of the amount of broken glass, cigarette butts, empty cans, filthy wrappers, etc. lying around the area and stuffed into the shrubbery.
Great one and one I’ve experienced far too many times unfortunately
I can’t think of a catchy name but once I found a cache in a hedge that had been twice DNFd. I was walking on air for the rest of the day!

FTF Confusion – the feeling you get when your FTF and didn’t even try.
(PS – Great list.)
