    ISS Sightings - Aug 2019

    I had an 88° pass yesterday morning, but a bank of clouds came in and obscured it. Sept 15 at 06:18:46 am is my next visible pass at 48° to my NE. Oklahoma City shows same pass as 43° to SW at 06:17:03. And between now and then the path will move a couple more degrees farther SW. I have another pass on Sept 18 at 20:28 at 58°. Oklahoma City shows the same pass at 20:30 at 41°. Between now and then the path will move to the NW. It might hit 45° by then for OK City. Those are my only two visible passes for September above 45°. Next will be Oct. 10. Also maybe visible with OK City.

    It depends on which part of the system they're using to calculate the souvenir. If it's another "midday UTC" thing I'm probably skittled.

    On your list of finds they're both showing as "Today" but they're showing correct dates on the cache page so you should be good.

    Easy vs Hard geocaches

    You are entitled to hide the cache any way you want as long as you follow the rules. That said, I looked at Dogwood Drive using Street View in Google maps. Based on the picture, I could not find any place where it would be possible to hide a regular container in the area hinted at in the clue. Keep in mind that if the "hide" is so obvious that a casual walker will easily see it and wonder what it might be, it will likely rapidly vanish. There are two basic reasons to hide a cache, to make it a challenge for the seeker, and hopefully to make the cache live longer. It could be that is what Gadawgcacher means by "too obvious," in which case it would have been nice if he had explained it to you. Did he give your Dad any additional information? Welcome to caching. You will look at things a little differently as you hone your geosense. Have fun doing so.

    On an unpublished cache, the edit button is in the banner along the top next to the Submit for Review button. If you've already submitted it for review, you'll need to cancel the submission (again a button in the top banner) before you can edit it.

    Easy vs Hard geocaches

    Your caches are rated very low for D/T, so geocachers should expect it to be easy! You aren't doing anything wrong. Just be aware that if it's too obvious, as someone stated in a log, that muggles might see it.

    Easy vs Hard geocaches

    I prefer the cache be at least a little bit challenging, but there are fantastic hides in plain sight. You're not doing anything wrong! However, if I went to find a non-creative cache that was just sitting at GZ I might be a little bit disappointed.

    Easy vs Hard geocaches

    I'm new to geocaching and already addicted. I want to get people interested in geocaching in our community and can't believe I'm so late to the game. We farm, and so we've hidden geocaches in different areas of our farm, many of them park and grabs so people won't call to report suspicious behavior. A user has commented on several of my logs that they are too easy...saw my father at one of the spots and told him to tell me they were too easy, and now has sent me a message saying he or she feels like she's on an easter egg hunt and not geocaching. Our intention was to get people to pretty spots in our county, get them out in the country where they can see cows and horses and the different crops that we grow. AND we want it to be kid friendly. Almost all of mine are filled with kiddie swag. All of the one's that I've found so far except for 3 or 4 were pretty easy, and I don't think mine are any easier than those so I don't get what the problem is? I guess I'm asking b/c she's making me feel like I'm doing something wrong? Do you prefer easy or hard geocaches?

    That would have been a good thing to clarify in the FAQ.

    I'm curious, this morning I went out and made a find for day 2 of the streak, logging it about an hour ago, yet when I go to my dashboard statistics page, it says my current streak is one day with a find on the 25th. Is this a timezone issue and if so, did my find yesterday morning (the 25th) not count because it was still only the 24th in Seattle?

    Nope, did not go out to find any geocache today, had plans already, so this campaign is done for me already. Too bad for late announcement from GCHQ. Really hope that these delayed and also sudden announcements do not happen with any future Geocaching campaigns again.

    This is going to work out well for us. My wife and I are 6 weeks into a 3-4 month RV trip in the Northeast US. We don't always log our finds since we're more into seeing all the things rather than running up the numbers so this will force me to log my finds. _Q_

    It did bug me that I had to wait until Sunday to start geocaching when I had planned to go out Friday night, but not getting that Mystery at the Museum challenge has definitely given me the fuel needed to try and accomplish this one. Already scoped out ones near the bf's home and will hopefully land one a day. 1 down, 6 more to go. Happy caching!

    Koordinaten

    Hallo, wenn ich einen Cache verstecke gehe ich wie folgt vor. Ich befinde mich Vorort. Öffne google Maps, das ist ja auf der Seite auch vorgesehen und finde die Koordinaten z.B. 9.11235 100.12345 diese übertragen ich zu Hause beim Posten in den Cache. Darauf wird automatisch in die Koordinaten N 9° usw. E ... umgewandelt. Wenn ich selber mit N und E und ° min. und sec eintrage, die ich aus dem empfohlenen Converter übernehme, funktioniert es nicht. Ich habe andere Möglichkeiten versucht, es funktioniert aber nicht. Da ich das alles aber möglichst perfekt und geocaching konform machen möchte, brauche ich eine detaillierte Anleitung. Woher und wie übertrage ich welche Koordinaten? Wenn ihr mir wirklich helfen wollt, bitte detaillierte Anleitung für mich Schritt für Schritt, ansonsten mache ich es wie gehabt, weil es ja auch funktioniert.

    I noticed the following: I first got a notice on my app Friday morning, but was not able to read the entire thing because when I unlocked my phone, the message disappeared. Very soon after I posted on the forum, about 12 minutes later, I received a notification for the Blog, telling about the Streak. The next morning I received a newsletter email, telling about the Streak. So these three notifications were sent/received at very different times.

    I'm glad I saw this topic a couple of days ago - the email just arrived in my inbox this morning. With all the caches around here - even if I've cleaned up most within 5 miles - I shouldn't have a problem finding a cache a day, if I feel like getting off my duff each day... But still it would have been nice to have a little more notice than the day it starts...

    Found It = Didn't Find It

    On a computer it's very easy. Open up the cache concerned. Then on top right hand you will see: Found It! Logged on: (date YOU logged it) Click on this and it will bring up your log. Then click on the pencil image (to the left of the bin image). Then next to Type of Log: change 'Found it' to 'Didn't find it'. Easy.

    Basic member posting on Premium Member cache

    I'm not sure he understands the different types of "mystery" caches, either. They sure can, and are allowed to, log finds on PM caches.

    Such a shame that we have an 82º, -3.8 mag. tomorrow morning and no viewing partners!

    Count up / Count down

    Where I live, I've only seen these on college campuses.

    Count up / Count down

    This is a great question. They are not commercial. In my part of the world, they are so common that they are no longer interesting. They are so common that there may be proximity issues. What do the rest of you think?

    Well I was busy all day, but a few caches were just published in my area... so I went for'em. Got 2 today before settling down to the desktop after a long day. Off to a good start =) Do it, or don't do it, either is fine!

    ALR or not

    It's okay in one, and okay in the other. What's not okay the is the CO enforcing the language as an ALR. Whether it's "use the verifier" or "enjoy the view". The language in this case is not the issue, the issue is what the CO attempts to enforce. Since in this case the language is obviously debateable as to whether it is intended as an ALR, the answer is whether the CO IS enforcing it as an ALR. If one CO with the language does and another CO with the same language doesn't, then the problem is with the CO that does. Obviously if the language were clarified one way or another, then the language would be clear. "You cannot log your find unless..." is disallowed. "Optionally, you may..." is allowed. Niether of those are there in this case. So the CO's actions determine what the CO meant with the language.
