  1. I have never been "let down" by the contents of a cache, because to me, finding the cache is the reward. The thing about geocaching is that as a cache owner, you really have very little control over what happens to your cache once you put it out there. You can only control the way you react. Hey, I'd prefer not to see adults misusing ellipses and using the term "lol," but for the sake of my own health I just roll my eyes and move on. I feel for you OP. I wish some people would play fair but some don't and some just make snarky comments. It must be nice to be perfect. She is, isn't she?
  2. that line got old right before you used it the first time No. It is always funny!
  3. I agree that this is an ALR. It's one thing to threaten to publicly ridicule those who do not climb the tree, but it's another thing to delete their log. The way I see it, if somebody wants to log one of my caches as found I really don't care all that much. I've even let a log stand where the 'finder' signed a discarded Gatorade lid! I found it funny, and didn't let it bother me in the way that those who take this sport far too seriously would. For what it's worth, a couple of my caches have quasi-snotty comments about using Google Street View. If I found out that they used Street View against my wishes, I'd publicly shame them but I wouldn't delete their logs. As far as I'm concerned the same policy should be enforced for any wish that the CO posts to the cache page. Here's what I have on one of mine - And another -
  4. +1 My favourite are cleverly hidden urban hides, but the same in the forest is always good too. I'd still rather be doing a multi than finding a traditional though.
  5. ...because some of us would find that fun? That something is a challenge. Some us us want to find challenging caches, rather than just another lame P&G traditional. If I hid something like this, not only would it be a 1000' bushwhack, it would have several hundred yards between waypoints too!
  6. Science (from Latin: scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise of gathering knowledge about the world and organizing and condensing that knowledge into testable laws and theories* *Edward Wilson, Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge. New York: Vintage, 1999. I love history... I just don't like researching the past!
  7. I get a lot of funny looks when I ask a girl if she'd like to go geocaching. Sigh. If I could only get one to go and see how she reacts to finding caches. When we have events around here it's usually about a 50/50 crowd, lots of women geocachers - some are more avid than I am, so clearly not a gendercentric hobby. I've noticed in other countries it seems to attract a better percentage of young women, at least from the anecdotal evidence I've seen. Not only that, they're gorgeous too. Just another reason for me to expatriate. Well, keep trying and sooner or later you might meet someone through geocaching. A fellow cacher introduced Narcissa and I, and then we proceeded to do the entire binthair challenge together! If you can make it through that, you can make it through anything - Just look at us!
  8. <accent='my best Irish'> Ya see? If ya marry a nice cachelic girl in the first place, ya wouldn't have these problems! </accent> Narcissa
  9. For attempting to draw the ire of the Frog, this thread must be shut down.
  10. It would be a Terms of Use Violation, I believe
  11. Dear (Insert CO's name here), My caching partner and I have worked it out between us, and have decided that we did indeed share the FTF. Thank you for your concern. -we3jeepers
  12. and narcissas...BTW, very appropriate name... Because she's pretty, like a daffodil?
  13. Alright I went back through the posts and didn't see anything like this. Give me a break. If someone even types the word "race" now we have Apartheid references?!?!? I think that White Urkels shouldn't be allowed to cache. I did jokingly say 'Apartheid FTW!' after suggesting (with equal jest) that race requirements should accompany the age requirements... Perhaps TWU took that to mean that telling young geocachers (and I stress that they are geocachers after all) is the same thing as apartheid. That's not what I said, but it is true that doing this would create two classes of cachers; those with the privilege of placing caches, and those without. If we're going to do that, we would definitely be better off limiting cache placement to premium members.
  14. All people under the age of 18 should not be allowed to hide caches because they're irresponsible and won't maintain their caches. That's not discrimination? It's certainly prejudice! I'll agree that it's nowhere near apartheid, but forbidding those beneath the age of 18 to place caches is insane. At the very least, it calls the family friendly nature of the sport into question
  15. Well lets just add a maximum age requirement and species requirement while were at it. Maybe we can add a motor vehicle access requirement too. Maybe also a minimum requirement for how much free time people have to cache. There problem solved right? Ooh... Ooh... Can we add a race requirement too? And make sure that all cache owners are good Catholics? Apartheid FTW! CCRF
  16. All of the above, plus the wonderful people I meet ( Narcissa )
