    The majority of them required substantial digging to find in all the snow, some as much as an hour. And the eight I found in one day were spread out over 43.8 miles. That and the closest one was 29.9 miles from my house


    That is an accomplishment to find them in the snow, sometimes they are hard to find with no snow at all on the ground. Yesterday I was looking for one and I walked right over it, it was placed very well but my coordinates was showing it to be 9 feet away, I found it after about 10 minutes. With no snow on the ground.


    I placed a 3 stage cache yesterday on grassland that right now is short and passable, but when summer comes that place will have grass 5 feet tall.


    This is the easiest time to hunt. No leaves on the trees, no snow, no bugs (ticks, chiggers) and hardly no grass.


    When I first started I was gun-ho and went out one day and found 8 (40 mile spread) caches then when I got home that night it dawned on me I didn't get to enjoy the places I was at and so now I take my time and enjoy every place geocaching takes me.


    Just my 2 cents worth


    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

  2. Hiddenrock, see if you can either get it on it's way to me or TejasFilm, I live in Missouri and Tejasfilm is in Texas at least from his nick he is, I just checked and Yes I was right, the only way I knew that is from a ZZ Top CD I have, and they are from Texas. icon_wink.gif


    TejasFilm when are you going to Europe?

  3. Take a look at the pics I posted earlier in this thread of the same type (or close to it) ammo can and then take a look at his close up pics of his ammo can. Mine was from a 22 rifle and see how clean of a hole the 22 slugs put in there, they are perfectly round and smaller, now his can has tore or ripped holes in it. I don't have a pellet gun to attempt to see if that’s the type of hole it would leave but I would "guess" that would be the way a pellet would do it. Plus being in a park it would be a quiet gun.


    After I said all that, I just can't believe a pellet could do that, till I saw the posted url by "Da Rebel" of the air pellet guns.


    What a fun debate! icon_smile.gif I wish I did have a pellet gun to compare the holes!

    Leaving a (basically) unsigned note without contact information is unprofessional.


    It does kind of make you wonder if a ranger did leave that note in the picture. I was thinking that a ranger would leave his name or badge and also in the note telling the owner of the cache to contact him or the rangers headquarters. icon_confused.gif

  5. Wouldn't the note and baggie be abandoned property too?


    They get on this site (and others I'm sure) and find the coordinates then go to the caches and remove them.


    What a shame. We need to get together and see if we can get some laws passed and or somehow get permission to place caches in refuges or places like that as long as we ask for the permission and show them where they are. I know this has been debated countless times, the places that charge admission profit off of us. I just wish they would wake up and see the cache. icon_wink.gif

  6. I was bored today so I brought out my 22 rifle and an old ammunition box and shot it. Then I brought out my 38 pistol but No Bullets! I have bullets for the 45 but that is NO WAY 45 bullet holes. But here is the pic of the box, I only shot it 3 times and I was shooting high today, I kept them in the same pattern (except for no fourth shot) The 22 bullets went all the way through the other side of the box except for one, the second picture show's the slug. I had nothing in the box.
