[GeoStL] Re: Fwd: [LOG] Watchlist: geoofficer found "GUFF" (MO) (Unknown Cache)

-
I would have to agree with OZ, if you don't find it then you don't get a
smiley. If it were a gold bar and you don't find it then you wouldn't have a
gold bar would you. Ozguff has some good caches. I've done a few in his
hometown and was especially impressed with one that I had to do a lot of
walking in town to find.
