  1. Past hour
  2. I just took the caches that are currently active, and viewed their logs. Anything more sounds complex and I doubt it would give a significantly different result.
  3. With caches getting archived and unarchived all the time, I am curious to know how you calculated the number of active caches in previous years? (I used to record the number of active caches every few months, but lost all of it in a recent disk crash.)
  4. Today
  5. Kwestią jest nie tylko odległość od przystanku, ale też dostępność owego transportu. Jak autobus gdzieś dojeżdża dwa razy na dobę, to nie dałbym atrybutu, nawet gdyby kesz był 10m od przystanku. Chyba, że kesz byłby ukryty na samym przystanku i chciałbym zwrócić na to uwagę graczy. Przykładowo, dla swojej serii eventów "Bilety to nie śmieci" dodaję ten atrybut, ponieważ jest to centrum dużego miasta i dojazd komunikacją publiczną jest rzeczą naturalną, mimo że od przystanku do miejsca spotkania jest coś koło pół kilometra. Dodaję ten atrybut również dlatego, że w waypoincie podaję współrzędne przystanku i numery linii, którymi można dojechać. Dlatego właśnie pisałem, że atrybut uważam za mało użyteczny. W mieście niemal wszędzie można znaleźć dla niego uzasadnienie. Poza miastem już niekoniecznie.
  6. In my opinion, the sentence about the poles is associated with extra poles that the cache owner has brought in and buried partially.
  7. I liked it better "Not to create a spot/space for a cache" like I mentioned above. Drilling a hole in a pole, tree, fence or anything that was already there. The word I use is Vandalism!!!
  8. "Buried caches" guideline is better now. One paragraph is difficult to understand what it really means.: "Caches that are mounted on a pole which is partially underground (no matter if the pole was driven into the ground or fixed into the ground with cement). " How this underground pole relates to buried caches? No fence or light pole caches without the explicit permission?
  9. My favorite is the mouse stamp With lanyard it is always with you. It pops open with one hand and self inks. Small enough not to take up a lot of space on a logsheet. I can even stamp a nano log. edit: And the price is perfect $10
  10. That is really good news. The new text is a great improvement. Thanks to the folk at HQ for listening to our feedback
  11. Many OM to me seems like they care about their cache enough to keep it up to date, make sure the logsheet isn't full, making sure it is still there. etc. Haven't I seen it written that COs should check their caches on a regular basis? And in doing so post an OM log stating the cache has been checked? On many of my evil ones I get DNFs but it doesn't mean it's not there. Just means I did a good job hiding it.
  12. Where?
  13. Nicely done. You are a true romantic.
  14. Most I found usually rip on the sides. Also cachers sometimes put pencils or other sharp objects in them and they get holes. Depending on the container you could try something like a 35mm or test strip container inside your cache.
  15. Yeah it should have been a note. DID NOT FIND! means that. DNF when you didn't even try it doesn't make sense. If it were me I would either contact the cacher and ask them to change it to a note or delete it as it is not a Found message, you can.
  16. I've been thinking about this problem (keeping logs dry) for awhile. I'm not familiar with the particular kind of bag in the OP. The best idea I've come up with so far is flat freezer containers. There are different types, so they'd have to be field tested.
  17. MUCH better, IMO.
  18. Are the zipper seals on these bags designed to remain secure even after being opened, closed, opened, closed, open, closed, etc. many times?
  19. Thank you to everyone who has asked good questions and provided constructive feedback about the new Geocache Hiding Guidelines. Geocaching HQ is taking feedback into account, so stay tuned for some updates to the actual guidelines text. In the meantime, specific to the issue of "Buried Caches," please see this newly updated Help Center article.
  20. You are likely referring to "Advanced" caches in the official Geocaching Apps, rather than caches available to Premium Members only. So long as you don't mark your cache as being available to Premium Members only, any member (basic or premium) can view it on the website and find it with a GPS or smartphone. Basic members just miss the convenience of opening the cache details in the Official App, if the D or T is above 1.5 stars. Your local reviewer can help you in defining the distinction between "mystery cache" and "traditional cache with the field puzzle attribute," which can be a challenging choice when it comes to gadget caches. Local practices vary, and either choice is acceptable.
  21. I was out caching with my eldest son today while hubs watched my little one for a few. When we found the cache, I noticed the baggie used to hold the swag was a bag for pumped breast milk. This might at first seem really weird, but these bags are made to hold liquid in the freezer for 6 months at a stretch and keep it in good condition to be given to little babies. They have two good zippers and are nice, thick plastic. The particular bag used in this cache was target brand. My hubs has to take medication with every meal, so he has a large stock of sturdy medication bags, so we have some of those in our cache bag we bring with us, along with sandwich bags, I might add some milk freezing bags now too. Just thought this might help someone looking for options.
  22. I am releasing a series of 5 gadget caches. The first one was released and we kept the difficultly at 1.5 so non premium members can play. The FTF gave a great feedback including raising the D to 2.5 and making it a mystery cache. We have modified the Description to say this should take up to 30 min and probably be a 2.5d but we want everyone to see it. Question: Is it ok to leave the D at 1.5 so all can play?

  23. Seems a lot of people were too scared to join the Mission this time. There are only 13 including me. I will send out emails shortly to let you know who your Mission Partner is. Have fun getting your goodie bags together!!! EMAIL SENT: September 20, 2017 NAME RECEIVED BY ME: MISSION SENT BY ME: MISSION ARRIVED AT DESTINATION: MISSION RECEIVED BY ME: HINTS FOR MY MISSION PARTNER: My favorites are astronomy/astrology, new age, alien, Celtic, Egyptian, OWL, hedgehog, horse, dog, dragons, cars, motorcycles, colorful/glow. The top on my wish list are a GC trackable North Dakota Coin, and Kealia's Well Rounded Cacher 81 Challenge Coin. And, FTF Magazine Volume 6 Issue 1---the first issue of 2015 I enjoy surprises, too, and would be happy with any Coins I may receive for Missions!!!
  24. As the forum thread has taken a turn towards nasty (not by you, TriciaG), I'm going to stop posting here.
  25. I don't see a problem with this at all. A good portion of my points are awarded to caches simply because I have a happy memory or a great adventure attached to them. Many of them were already archived when I awarded the points.
  26. I logged a DNF on a Virtual once. We searched for it but were unable to find it. Oh, well. DNF.
  27. Our reviewer has a really quick turnaround on publishing cahes as long as there are no complications. I've submitted caches and had them published in the same day.
