    Default Funny Treasure Hunting Stories

    I looked at past topics and did not see a thread for this, If I missed it somewhere, I apologize.
    I LOVE to laugh and right now could use all the laughs I can get! If you have a funny story from a hunt (any hunt), please post it here. I'll go first.

    On our last hunt we went looking for beetle. I got a little too enthusiastic after spotting a tree that looked like an unused tree in the book and didn't listen for a "buzzing" noise. I stuck my hand right in the knothole and out came a very large, black, round, rather furry flying thing!!
    It buzzed right around to my backside and stung me on the VERY upper portion of my thigh! I immediately started having an allergic reaction. We had been in the car about 15 minutes looking for a pharmacy and the whole time the kids were whining about why we had to leave and stop looking for the token. My reaction to the sting was becoming more severe. Finally, my husband could take no more and said very loudly, "We can't stay and look for the token because your mom's butt is getting bigger by the second!"
    This definitely lifted their moods!! I spent the rest of the day and night hopped up on Benadryl acting like Will Smith in Hitch!! It took 4 days for the swelling to go completely down!! Next time I go hunting I'll remember the Benadryl along with my epipen!!
    I still catch the little angels making fun of their poor mom from that trip!! I'm sure it's something they'll always bring up and laugh about as they grow up. That's the best part of discovering ATT to me!!

    Holli...OMG!!! Thanks for the post about my butt!! My kids are cracking up!!!
    Love the Captain Morgan comparison...clever!! When my sister and I were Jr. and Sr.'s in high school some friends came over to pick us up to go out. My Mom asked where we were going and we said, "A party at Captain Morgan's house!" She then proceeded to ask who he was. We said, "He graduated a few years ago and he's a Captain in the Navy now and he's on leave for a few days." She said, "Okay...have fun!" and proceeded to kiss us on the cheek as we went out the door!!
    Our friends were sooo jealous! They said, "We wish we had a foreign mom who didn't understand English very well!" We were sooo bad!!

    There's a D all right; and it stands for DENIAL - as in "Boy is Holli in Denial about that picture..."

    -Spam.

    hi - not so hilarious - but lots of fun I had on my biggest trip to search! My youngest and I were traveling for a few days - had tried a spot we though but didn't want to go home so we just kept driving - waiting for inspiration to stirke - well - beofre leaving we had made a solemn promise not to travel to Memphis ( we did head in a southerly direction ) and to NOt go to Graceland - a promise extracted by my middle daughter - a huge Elvis fan - who would never forgive us for going there without her - well - we headed further south afer not finding anything the first spot we checked - and in the process of avoiding Graceleand - accidentally - totally randomly ended up turning a corner and stumbling almost literally - on Elvis' birthplace in Tupelo, MS. We took tons of pics but were laughing so hard it was a difficult proposition - was a tough one to explain when we got back - after another wild inspiration we were SO sure would lead us to the beetle in Alabama - (this was pre-badlands find!) we had a wonderful 1.111 mile trip and found much treasure but ot the ATT jewel sort - and was pretty funny to tell my daughter we had NOT gone to Graceland - but........
    we are forgiven but definitely must take her to GRaceland one of htese days! lol - nice idea for a thread - I look forward to reading more stories!

    Neat thread! Thanks! Most of my stories involve mud or falling down but the last time I went out I had a pretty good encounter with the ranger at the park I was in. He was the type who is a cop and ranger and ninja all balled up into one. I was the only car there that day and he had nothing better to do than follow me around. Anyway after a while he asked me what i was doing i told him i was looking for a geocache "of sorts' and he immediatley said:
    I KNOW WHERE IT IS

    so of course im freaking out and he walks me all the way up this hill to a little rock and pulls out a little geocache film canister. I wrote "tweleve.org omg lol" on it and had to explaion to him that wasnt it and anyway it degraded to the point of him "calling" the "creator" of this hunt (my cellphone in the car ringing away) to find out where that "damn canister" was hidden. My goodness I still have the message its hilarious. He's "serious about this geocaching business!".

    I got out of the alive tho! yay!
