  1. They may have found some AL's..... we are rationing out one last partially done AL in our LGA in order to get the basecamp souvenirs whilst locked down..... if only we had more to do....
  2. The 'sans-scale' maps really irritate me too - what is a map without a scale? I'd also like to see PC integration, especially right on the geocaching map.....
  3. If you have the tracking code and it isn't working, then try switching I's/1's and O's and 0's - that usually works.... even Z's/2's.....
  4. Bugger.... your Two beaches caches are well hidden too.... no chance that three are randomly muggled at once. Thankfully we haven't had much muggling happening for a bit - not that we can check many anyway, most are outside of our (tiny) government area.....
  5. We do this a lot... on facebook messenger....
  6. This is what irritates me the most - I can live with the smiley per location (twist my arm!) - it sort of makes up for the one smiley for those long treks and involved multis! - but why are lab finds completely absent from the record?? Today we needed a find for International Geocaching Day.... we are in a covid-19 lockdown, and have to stay in our local government area - so all we could do was an AL location. We did it and got our souvenir, but our caching history is of course blank - as if we did nothing.... why is this?? Project-GC can see the individual locations logged, so its clearly possible. Even if we can't add a log (which I would like) at least put a record of the find in our history..... this can't be that difficult.....
  7. If you're in a tight lockdown, you might be able to at least scrape a basecamp souvenir with GC8NEAT if you haven't already done it.....
  8. Yes, you can (same with EarthCaches) - I think you must have visited yourself within a specific time of publishing though.....
  9. You don't need to hear back from the CO before logging an EarthCache - just send you answers to them at the time you do your log....
  10. I tend to agree that using a pole shouldn't increase the T rating - but should raise the D-rating. I have a cache where you need a magnet on a string to pull a cache out of a hollow pole - basically the same as bringing a pole to access the cache - nobody would argue that the T-rating needs to be raised then?
  11. I did some testing in a local park - I'm going to try again with some fluoro tape on the hook - that far up looking into the bright sky I can hardly see where the little black hook is!
  12. There was a time when you could log more than one find on a cache, I suspect it was often done by mistake by newbies, sometimes not I suppose....
  13. In Australia I would fully expect him to react exactly the same, regardless of who was there, if they were acting the same way of course.
  14. I think the important thing to do is to detail what happened - this way the CO knows whether a visit is needed (ie found a small cave, it was empty) or not (couldn't get up that last hill to the cave). Also a reviewer can use the circumstances in deciding whether a cache needs to be disabled/archived.
  15. eBay - I searched for 'squid pole'- - then fashioned my own hook with some wire and tape....
  16. Same - in fact I'll often state 'I'm sure its there' in our DNFs..... I usually do give an indication of our degree of searching though....
  17. I've always used google maps for this.... or my GPSr.....
  18. 2 DNFs and its disabled within a week.... that doesn't happen here, ever..... I wonder if our CHS machine is turned on or not??
  19. That might be a short log.... around here might be.... Day 1. We placed the TB in the cache. Day 30. It's still there.

    Icon?

    You can't.... I believe you can make your own, if you cough for a full set of custom codes for geocoins though, at a cost of course....
  21. I think souvenirs should come with Project-GC like badges or in different colours (bronze/silver/gold etc) for varying levels of participation/achievement. This souvenir set would lend itself nicely to this, with attribute collecting etc....
  22. +2, one on both points.... You can just inscribe the code onto your item somehow, but then cachers won't immediately recognise it as a TB... I'd use the tag....
  23. You can make your own item, and put a unique code on it - I'm not sure if you can choose the codes though, perhaps when you buy a series? Although I have doubts about it. The easiest way to get a code is to buy a trackable tag and use that code for your custom item.
  24. At an event last year I picked up a literal handful of geocoin proxies from an avid trackable hound, a dozen or so, they were quite large and difficult to place, so I ended up putting all of them in a good sized cache we had, that had been in place for a few years. It hasn't been found for a while, so I checked it last week to find it muggled, scattered all over the ground. No sign of the proxies except one....
