  1. I dropped off GeoNap coin #0018 in the Portland metro area today. Check out http://www.GeoNap.com to see where. Anyone for a night hunt? heh... heh...
  2. Weird... just noticed that my cache searches are showing the results in 'kilometers' away now and not 'miles.' It wasn't like that earlier today... anyone else experiencing this? Can I set that value somewhere?
  3. Sounds cool to me... I have visions of Galaga on the brain! It's been a LONG time since I've played Galaga... I still LOVE it though.
  4. I'm sure this one has been discussed before (and I have read some of the previous threads and they didn't answer my question), I have a specific question I'm hoping someone can answer. Or at least point me in the right direction. Is it 'Ok' to place a cache on US Forest Service Land? Specifically how about in Oregon? I'm talking about an area that requires the Forest Service Pass to park at a trailhead... and has miles and miles of trails. I'd rather not say specifically which area, as I would like to place a cache there. I just don't want to waste my time planning and placing it... just to see it pulled (or not approved). Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Moun10Bike: That sounds way cool! Now... all we have to do is find it! ;-)
  6. Sounds interesting... I'm intrigued. Someone has to know where this is.... or one of us should be able to find it!
  7. Dasein... looks like a good one. I have added it to my ever growing list of 'must do' caches. I kind of like hunting caches that haven't been found in a while... adds to the fun I think. There's always the chance that it's not there anymore, but when you find it... it's like twice the reward. Logscaler... that looks like a cool one. Dangit... now I'm adding road trips to my list!
  8. I'm back! [] Logged some cool Virginia caches today. Hey Grandpa, just so you know... the Burke Lake park caches are not exactly the 'cache machine' I thought. Don't get me wrong, they are all awesome... seriously put it at the top of your list. The thing is the trail is 5 miles aroud the lake. I got about half of them before I had to rush to my plane (spent a few hours there). They were all really good hunts. I wish I would have had time to do the rest. I'll be coming back here at some point. I think there are like 10 caches around this lake. If you go (of if anyone does), let me know and I'll give you a couple tips for the area.
  9. I've got the plane reserved for when I return. Hopefully I don't land on the island to the North... that would suck... Or maybe I'll jump from my commercial flight on the way back... I'm sure they'd go along with that.
  10. It would be a great drive for your jeep (you can do this one without a 4x4 though everyone... don't let me create additional fear). The drive up is really quite cool... good views... a little scary at points... but fun. If you are headed towards the Tillamook area, check this one out.
  11. C'mon guys... give the Valley View cache a shot, don't let my log scare you! You can see my log and the cache here: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=58306&log=y I expected that after I found this one someone would go after it (since I proved that it REALLY was there). Heck, go read the log... I even left an Oregon geocoin there! There is an easier approach to this one... I just couldn't find it. The view from this one is ABSOLUTELY amazing. You won't regret it (unless of course you climb the side of the mountain and almost fall off like I did). Seriously, this is a good cache that no one is visiting. Hopefully by adding this topic I'll pique your interest.
  12. Bazzle, I'll be back early next week. Went into Washington DC earlier tonight... the monuments were way cool in the dark. I did get soaked though! Got trapped out in the rain doing the 'monument' thing. Still was cool though. I never knew there were SO many monuments and COOL buildings in DC.
  13. It's a good thing I'm not the 'King of the World' because I would have sunk that little island out of spite after my last attempt! Perhaps I'll break a small chunk from it when I actually find the cache.
  14. If push comes to shove, I would settle for a small tidal wave... is that too much to ask?
  15. Hey Fractal! Are you going to help me with 'Broken Arrow 2 (the real one)' to sink this island if I can't find 2925 on my next attempt? Of course I'm just joking... (Dr. Evil laugh) mmmwaauughh.... mmmwwwauuughh...
  16. I am in Fredericksburg, Va pretty close to DC (that's where I flew into). I believe it is about 50 miles south. The heat and humidity are kicking my butt! I can't believe how HOT and HUMID it is here. One of the caches I did the other night was definitely underated terrainwise... and it had me sweating like crazy! As far as the 'Park cache machine' do a search for the Burke Lake park cache (linked below)... and search from it's coordinates... http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=373 If it works, here is my search from those coordinates... shows 10 caches all less then one mile apart. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest_cache.asp?lat_ns=1&lat_h=38&lat_mmss=45.632&long_ew=-1&long_h=77&long_mmss=18.072 Thinking I must hit that one before I go!
  17. Yip... working too much too... cuts in on the caches.
  18. Armando & Co: Thanks for asking! Not too many caches near the area that I'm staying. Most are a little drive from here (10+ miles). It is beautiful here though. I was actually just working on a list a few minutes ago of ones I'm going to try to hit. Hopefully I'll get to a few more tomorrow night. I hit this one which was pretty cool: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=71711 It was much more challenging than I expected... not sure this one is rated correctly... I would have rated the terrain and the cache more difficult. I Have this really cool 'turn by turn' GPS in my rental car, which makes it WAY easier since I don't know the roads in the area. Armed with that and my Geko makes for an awesome caching combo. The car GPS even tells you when turns are approaching. So as long as I input a close cross street to the area, the car GPS gets me pretty close and then it's up to the Geko from there. There's a few caches that were recommended to me and I am looking forward to some of them. I also just found one park that has like 8 caches in it! That's like a park 'cache machine' It is kind of interesting how things vary from area to area though... geocaching just 'feels' different here... just the type of caches... the descriptions... the cachers... the trades... I can't put my finger on exactly what it is, but it's just not the same. Team Joyson: Not bored... just chillin' at the hotel. Relaxin' and enjoying my high speed hotel internet access (don't see that too many places).
  19. I hear what you're saying dusty... I'm not implying to go out an be obnoxious, or even necessarily to go get drunk. Just saying that it would probably be fun to grab a few drinks with some fellow geocachers and find a cache or two sometime.
  20. Holy crap! I only got a few results, but still kind of cool... geonap is a software package for the geodetic evaluation of static and kinematic gnss geonap is a powerful multi geonap is based on the analysis of undifferenced gps observables Check out that last one!!! it even says GPS... how cool is that?!? And then a few before... a 'powerful multi' cache perhaps... heh heh I like this one...

    Champoeg Redux!!

    Aha! I have the 101st reply! ahhh... ok... you're right... who cares...
  22. Hmmmm... things are getting very interesting now... I almost wish I wasn't in Virginia... nah... I want to see a few of you go out there and PUNISH yourselves first. Seriously, this cache kicked my a$$. But it looks so easy you say... mmmwwahh.. mmmmwhah... I laugh...go ahead... bring water and try not to die. ;-)
  23. This sounds like fun...
  24. dadgum... I'm wishing I wan't in Virginia right now. I would LOVE to be first finder on this one. I'm thinking if I wasn't here I'd be calling in sick... heh heh... Perhaps it will still be unfound when I return... doubt it... ;-)
  25. Sea_Dog... looks like I just missed you at my first Virginia cache. Funny how that works! If anyone is interested, I left one of the highly coveted, individually numbered, Oregon geocoins yesterday. They're pretty dang nice. If you're interested: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=71711 Be sure to log it at http://www.cogeo.org if you pick it up. Enjoy! Viriginia is beautfiul by the way... I'm really having a nice time so far.
