  1. This land is your their land, this land is my their land From California, to the New York Island From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters This land was made for you and me them That's quite a catchy tune you have there...
  2. Looking forward to it! Head's Up.....the event page will be updated but everyone start thinking about whether or not they want a San Diego Geocacher's tshirt as we'll be selling them at the campout and I will be needing some pre-order numbers to get the order in. We're using the simple SD Geoachers Logo..small on the front and larger on the back. Probably light ash as only light colors look good with the logo. I'm expecting the tshirts to be under $15 and sweatshirts or hoodies we also be available for approx $20-23. I'll need qtys and sizes and will let ya know the cut off. Still working on the quote and the artwork.... New master of logo artwork delivered to Jodi. Also Uploaded it to San Diego Geocachers.org site so that everybody can access it. Make sure to resize for largest dimensions when viewing it on the link below. Master Artwork: San Diego Geocachers Logo I also have a color-separation version available for silkscreen printing. It's four colors and the black text below the artwork can be either included or excluded. Isn't that old guy amazing....never thought you'd hear me say that did you? Ok...if you want a shirt email me with the qty and size. We will also have hoodies and sweatshirts. When I get the final prices I will have Skillet update the cache page. Is anyone making stickers of this logo any more? My back window has been bare far too long.
  3. I know now and I should have known earlier as I used to watch this cache by his Lordship! Where the heck is this? May be a silly question, but, this isn't real is it?
  4. I'm slowly getting back up to speed here and was wondering who or if anyone is planning on going to the Yuma event. Any groups going, caravans, where is everyone staying, planning on hitting both events Sat/Sun...?
  5. Just because most people have cell phones now doesn't mean you can take down a call box sign and call it trash.
  6. Uh oh guys...look what I just got. I'm ready for that new bikeNcache trail in RB.
  7. It's a real bummer when events conflict...I'll be in Mexico on a little bike ride the same day. I'll be sure to catch the fall event.
  8. I'm sure the usual suspects have already seen this in their email. I've already signed up.
  9. I found an interesting cache container today and on it was a little critter that wasn't too happy about being disturbed.
  10. And why is it so important to find a cache every day? Actually, no need to answer. We each have our little obsessions. Interesting question. Here's my answer to it. Kids -- There are still lots of parents getting into geocaching and they bring the young'uns along. And a lot of the young'uns aren't interesting in the finding. They want to explore the loot. True, these aren't high mileage cachers nor are they in in the majority but they are still present. Travel Bug and Coin Movers -- Not exactly trading swag but it's hard to drop off a TB in a micro. Me -- It's rare but occasionally I find something in a cache that interests me. So I try to have some trade goods for those rare events. Just a little bonus on top of the general fun of it. I don't have any problem with anyone who places micros (with certain exceptions.) But for the reasons above, I've begun place only caches that are at least large enough for a regular sized geocoin. TG is correct. It's the total experience that counts. If the cache is placed on an interesting place or on an interesting trail, I don't consider the cache to be ho-hum even if it's just a bison tube and log. Likewise, if it was an interesting puzzle that led to micro, then it's still interesting. The quintessential example of ho-hum is a altoids tin skirt lifter behind a Walmart. The location isn't interesting because there's 5000 more just like it. The hide isn't interesting because there's a 10000 more just like it and the container isn't interesting because there are 15000 more just like it. The cache page isn't interesting because well, you know... But change just one of those four elements to something offbeat or unusual and now it becomes interesting. And yes, I'll still log the ho-hum ones if they are convenient. But I won't go very far out of my way just to bag one. I drive right on by knowing that there's another cache that's more interesting not very far away. Sure can't argue with that! (And the cachers here are pretty awesome too...) I couldn't agree more. I don't think I've ever been on a great hike just to be disappointed at the size of the cache I found.
  11. How true that is. Not funny! I was thinking it would be a good idea to post this on the front door but I don't really want to see chemical property #2.
  12. I'm still waiting for them to send my shirt from the last ride that they just so happened to run out of thinking it was the last ride and wanted to make some extra money at the riders expense. Just a coincidence that the 6 other rides I participated in had my shirt ready at the finish. I'm in. If anyone wants company on practice rides just let me know. The Old Julian hwy is a good one if you want to come to Ramona. I even hid another cache yesterday along the route. I got my t-shirt a couple weeks ago.
  13. Ok there soldier boy...slow down with the plans to kill all the civilians in San Diego. Why don't you start small...like with an Army green micro and work your way up to the all night adventure that Jim KWVERS! will have to lead. We're not all youngsters like you ya know. PS...El Cajon Mt might still have a few blank holes Time to lose weight...Oh Dear!!! Oh My!!! Last night, I was having a "flashback" of sorts ... all this Army stuff is getting to me, I think. Anyway ... so I was remembering back to the Otay Mtn. Truck Trail run many of us did awhile back. I think that outing might have something to do with halftrack guys present cache ideas. Yep, I remembered a moment when I was running to a cache and POLAR BEAR came running up to catch me - then gave me one of those football shoves you see those NFL players do. Mhmm, halftrack guy saw that ... his poor poor mother getting roughed up. Uh huh! Next thing I know, he's enlisted in the US Army ... then military intelligence. Yikes! Now he's thinking up all kinda of wild things to do, and it's all PB's fault (if ya ask me ). We're ALL gonna die!!!! Hmmm, what to do ... what to do. boysnbarrie Oh, btw ... I'm baby sitting at TIM's house I'm glad you added that last part. I always thought boysnbarrie was a good geo name and thought maybe you had changed it....not that there's anything wrong with the name TheIronMom
  14. Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it. That's Great!!
  15. I ran in to Condor Man at Daley Ranch today and we did a few caches together. When I got home and logged them I noticed he hit the big 4900 so a big WooHoo to him!
  16. My son heard through the grape vine that the Desert Rose in Occotillo burned down. Any truth in that? Skillet?
  17. Was something planned? Still in the planning stages, but we'll let you know ASAP. Probably a lifted but no lockers necessary kinda day. We'll see! I'll post as soon as I find out more details. Robyn Waiting for details - I'm a solid maybe shortwing Well, it's a for-sure thing on Saturday! Woo Hoo! Looks like it will be Truckhaven after all. Not sure of the start time, though. Possibly a meet at Christmas Circle in Borrego Springs @ 9:00. I will post here as soon as the details are ironed out. Looking forward to some fun Jeeping with a little caching. We'll miss that little green Jeep and the 'Yoda as well. Hope to have you guys up and running soon! Robyn If all goes well ..................we should get the new rear end sometime this afternoon Splashman will be busy tomorrow all day if we get it................so, there's a glimmer of hope that we can also be there if the stars, axles, & gears align!! Fingers crossed Splashette New rear end? Who said "New rear end?" Hi Janie, luv y' babe. Note to Self: I owe Harmon a whack on the noggin'..........yet again...........he never learns! Note #2" Never ~ EVER ~ let Harmon ride in the backseat.................EVER............... What goes around, comes around.........words to live by Splashette P.S. Splashman is on his way to pick up the new JEEP REAR END !!!!!!!!!!! AND IT'S A FINE REAREND, AND SURE IS HEAVY. WE GOT IT IN THIS MORNING SO MAYBE SOON WE CAN DO THE SQUEEZE. Wait a minute......what? Oh ok, you're talking about the Jeep rear end.
  18. Everything is possible with Photoshop. Ha-ha-ha-ah-hah! That's him!
  19. I was chasing down Team Adelos in Ramona and I kept hearing "knock, knock, knock" and I noticed some red-headed woodpeckers in this tree. All I had was my phone so the picture is not great but I wanted to share anyway.
  20. Well I'll say it, Woo hoo!! I'm glad to see the recent resurgence in Ramona cachers.
  21. Who killed Team Adelos' As the saying goes: "You can't keep a good man down, even if you keep killing him"...or something like that. Anyway, I enjoyed all the FTFs this morning. The page also mentioned a possible "Resurrection of Team Adelos" cache. I'm looking forward to that one too. It should be interesting.
  22. This really has nothing to do with with Geocaching but I ran across this story and thought it was pretty funny so I wanted to share it. I'm not sure if I should feel sorry for the guy or laugh at him. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,465844,00.html
  23. Beware of the Doghouse! You have been warned! Darn! And I had such a good idea for a gift too. Now I'll have to start all over.
