Have you ever been Geocaching and found a Red Herring? By Red Herring we mean a dummy or decoy geocache. I have found a few and I have to tell you that I don’t care for them too much. I think they are created by unimaginative people who get pleasure out of taking people to uninteresting locations.
The last one I searched for was in West Lafayette Indiana in some bushes in a parking lot behind a business. I found the Red Herring and there was a logbook in it and many people had signed it. I decided to not search for the real geocache or sign this fake logbook that someone had put in the decoy. Rooting around in a bush in a parking lot is just not my definition of fun. Here is the one I searched for – GC1A5PP – Drive Thru Geocache.
