Your Best Geo-Word

Postby Spotty Spotty Pony Girl on Tue Aug 21, 2007 9:56 am

What words have you made up by simply attaching "geo" as a prefix or suffix?

a short compilation & definition from me:

1. Geo-Shopping - i. any trip that combines shopping & geocaching. Best fit for our stay in Chicago on the Mile

2. Geo-Napping - i. what I do during the drive en route to the geocache

3. Geo-smashing - i. alternate word for geocaching. Because it rhymes. PMD & I use this alot.

4. Geo-Centric - i. description of my general mindset on many a day

No ... it was "GeoLunchen". I think it means something different.

Due to the addictive nature of the sport/hobby/obsession, the dudes at work have come to call it GeoCrack.

I have no PHD (antibiotics took care of that ) nor have I portrayed a PHD on TV. But if I remember correctly, we all were geocaching in the georain and decided to stop for a geolunch, While geoeating the rock-rat geophone rang alerting us to new geocaches that happened to be in geoWheeling. We geosnarfed our food and hit the geotrail in search of multiple geoFTFS. GeoSWMBO did her part then at the first of three geoFTF'S geoAquacache came through with the geoPAF aid.
That's my geostory and I'm sticking to it.

Yeah, there's two of us (and our respective spouses) at it now, maybe even in friendly competition. We do, however, have our at-work groupies keeping up with the adventures.

No, no, no you got it all wrong.

Aquacache is a different subset of the geo-terminology.

Aquacache being a verb.

(as I side note, I feel like a complete idiot explaining to someone that is a non-geocacher "well Aquacache was helping me work on my car...")

geo-preparedness (just to keep this thread on topic) - meaning I got all the stuff I could need to geocache.

What? You don't want to use the word from the here arse or the person with a degree? ;-)

So, does a geo-word need to have "geo" in it, or does it just need to be related to the game? When I first saw this post, it made me think of sniglets. These sound more like the trend of dot-com names than sniglets, though.

Back in the 90's a lot of companies that wanted to be part of the e-commerce (see what I mean) boom just put "e" in front of their name or some existing product to show that they were "online". Pretty soon they all sounded the same.

A sniglet is a word that should be in the dictionary but isn't. Like ... Execuglide which is the act of moving about an office without getting up from your chair.

For this particular thread you gotta have geo as a suffix or prefix (read Mr. Boy Scout...read....) :grin:

However, in the great vast world of words in general, nope it can be just related to the game. But I think we'd need a new thread for that.
