  1. Recently, I had attended an event cache in the US, and most participants considered it as normal to log it several times as 'attended', because they had found some temporary caches at the event site. Very strange...


    BTW: I have already logged one of my own caches as a 'find', because after a 'need maintenance log' it was harder to find this one than many other caches I have found before...


    I don't take the statistics too serious and also haven't logged a lot of caches that I didn't like.

  2. Thanks for uploading the article. It is nice to see the outcome of our great geocaching trip to Kommetjie.


    Greetings from Germany (especially to Aaron and Russel)!



  3. ...  and was never marked as new, even though you check every day?



    the 'new' depends on the 'date placed' field in the cache form. I use to put here the actual date, I placed the cache outside. Then I will wait for 2-3 weeks to see if the cache don't get muggled. Only then, I enable the tick mark 'cache is currently active'. After that the cache description will be visible for the reviewer and after his approval the cache is visible for others. But the cache is not marked as 'new', because for the system it has already been placed for more than 2 weeks.


    BTW, it is good way to see who is paying attention to details ;-).


    Have a nice weekend !



  4. I wonder if anyone in or near Mossel Bay would like to create a new cache??


    I tried to submit an idea that to me seems a 'natural' (can't imaging why nobody has thought of it already!) But as both a 'virtual' and a 'holiday cache' it had little chance of being approved, (it wasn't) but could be done either as an offset or micro-cache if anyone local was interested?


    It involves the idea that the worlds first geocache was in fact created here in South Africa (not the USA) and was planted over 500 years ago... <_<


    Please email me if you'd like to hear the idea!

    Actually, I thought the same when I had made there a short stop in December. I think I even took a photo with GPSr at that location. Have to check when I'm back home; I haven't that experience with letterboxes, but naturally it must be a letterbox-hybrid, don't you think so?


    Greetings from Taiwan!



  5. Originally I wanted to use the map to get an overview of the caches and their locations. Now I have used this map: http://www.accommodationco.co.za/map.gif , and loaded it into the OziExplorer.


    But it would be fantastic if I could get an 1:50K map of the Silvermine Nature Reserve (incl. 3-4 reference points for calibration).




    BTW: if someone would like to join me for a Geocaching-hike /-tour , please send me an e-mail.
