  1. Nice cache... Anyone want to take bets on when the cache police are going to come out and b*tch that it was... *gasp* somehow or another placed under the surface of the ground?
  2. Don't mean to be a negative nelly, but I think I would probably skip something like this. Just my opinion. So, you really, really mean to tell me that if you had gone through whatever it took to find the cache, if you saw something like that you'd just turn and walk away?
  3. ENOUGH with the cache police, eesh. Can we get back on track before this is closed for being off topic. Get a life and quit trying people how to play the game, they have reviewers, let them do their job!
  4. Sivota, you really deserve that coin for all that you do for others! I'd love to be in the contact group... unfortunately, here in Sweden we're still getting 18 to 20 hours of daylight a night, so I'm not sure a UFO could make it here, unless they have great cloaking capabilities! Congrats, everyone!
  5. THANK YOU LORI DARLIN AND TOOJIN! I can't remember the last time I got a coin in the mail...and Lord knows we haven't bought any in a zillion years or so, but my coin collection is still right here in the living room with me, even if we're not active on the forums any longer, and I still love them! I got one of the girls' GW coins and it is great! Micke and I loved the humor on it and Hanna tried to put it with her collection... like THAT is gonna happen! Thanks for making my day, ladies! You two are so awesome~ Much love!
  6. Let's keep this thread on topic. Open a new thread if you wish to discuss the merits or pitfalls of this cache. Let's not get this thread closed after all this time!
  7. I know of two caches that DID require some climbing... some old bridge and a certain crane... I think my heart is still sitting on top of that crane wondering how to get down ;-) Let us know once you are in our area and we'll fire up the barbecue
  8. Let me help you out... WOW!!_THAT'S_ONE_HUGE_MALE_CHICKEN!! *grinning* yeah, I know.... trust me the cock references fly around here... now, just to clarify, a cock is not always a dirty word... it is a valid and proper name for a male poultry fowl, as is evidenced by the dictionary entry here: Main Entry: 1cock Pronunciation: \ˈkäk\ Function: noun Etymology: Middle English cok, from Old English cocc, of imitative origin Date: before 12th century 1 a : the adult male of the domestic chicken (Gallus gallus) b : the male of birds other than the domestic chicken c : woodcock d archaic : the crowing of a cock; also : cockcrow e : weathercock 2 : a device (as a faucet or valve) for regulating the flow of a liquid 3 a : a chief person : leader b : a person of spirit and often of a certain swagger or arrogance 4 a : the hammer in the lock of a firearm b : the cocked position of the hammer 5 usually vulgar : penis — cock of the walk : one that dominates a group or situation especially overbearingly
  9. Spur of the Moment Here is our cache in a rooster
  10. Congrats to the well deserving recipients!
  11. YAY!!! Micke did some cache maintenance on our TB hotel and we got an EGG from the Easter Geocoin Bunny!! I didn't think it'd still be there since he went a few days after the log date, but it was!! WOOOHOOO! I got number 75!
  12. That actually rather bothered me, too, to be honest.
  13. I'm sitting here, trying to write this, and I just don't know where to begin. You see, I didn't sign up for a mission, yet, today we received the MOST fantastic mission in the mail from the Cutter Family. I haven't taken pictures, aside from the Hershey's Kisses and the coins, nothing has been opened yet. It's all under the tree, waiting patiently for Christmas. I cried when I read the letter, not a note, a letter, that was sent. I wish I could properly thank you and your family, but I'm at a loss for words. Some of you know me, some of you might think I'm a newcomer, but I'm anything but that. I used to be quite active, but life these past few months just has beaten me to a pulp. Between a new baby, losing my job, finances and a few other things I've just basically drawn back from a whole lot. This package today meant more than you know to Micke and I. We were really worried about being able to provide the girls with much of a Christmas, but thanks to your generosity and love, a bit more from Karin of Grodan & Fiabus, a lot of love from Lois-Ann/Hollora, and a package from the Swedish Santa that came without a return address on it or anything else to say who it was from! I know that Christmas isn't about the gifts you get, but you still want to make it a special time for your kids, and to them, it IS about the gifts, and when you're strapped and can't give them the way you want to, it really hurts. So, thank you again, Cutter family, from the bottom of our hearts, for your generosity, love, and letter and for saving our Christmas for us, along with the others who have surprised us with their love and generosity. Oh yeah, I LOVE the Jangor's micros, thank you!! Thanks again, Naomi and Micke and the kids - Mousekakat
  14. Patapum or ERGO, all the way. We got one with our then 14 month old who is now 3 1/2 and it is not only comfortable, but she can still use it. Now that we have a new baby, we'll use it for him, too. I REALLY recommend them!
  15. In this promiscious era of STD's I would argue that it is very appropriate. Never to early to educate the youth. Okayyy. In light of your OP and this follow up response, so why aren't you thanking the cache owner for the opportunity they gave you to discuss sex with your young daughter in the relaxed atmosphere of geocaching? It seems to me your words would have been more meaningful to your daughter at THAT moment while you're sharing quality time doing something you love than if you pulled her aside to give <ominous echo with fingers making quotations> THE TALK. </ominous echo with fingers making quotations> I'm just sayin'..... Agreed... My 10 year old not only knows what a condom is, but she knows how one is put on and has even put one on to see how it is done... granted it was on a jar of bubbles, but we felt it was important that she had some idea of what it was and how it was used and why. We had 'the talk' with her about 6 weeks ago and were a bit shocked to find that she already knew how babies were made... don't be surprised if yours does, too. Kids talk about it a lot younger now than we ever dreamt of talking about it... As for appropriate swag... why not. It does have multiple uses. I keep condoms and sanitary napkins and tampons in my first aid kit, as well as a couple of diapers. Always clean, somewhat sterile, and excellent for bandaging and absorbing blood. Would you consider those items, properly sealed, in a cache to be inappropriate, too?
  16. I'm thankful that Hollora and her hubby have come into our lives along with all the other incredible caching folks that we've met along the way!
  17. We cache with a 3 year old, a 10 year old, and a 4 month old and would LOVE to find a spooky cannister like that in the woods! Found one about a month ago that had a fake salamander glued to the bottom of the cannister. Scared the bejeesus out of our 10 year old at first, but afterwards we all had a good laugh, including her Something about seeing the 10 year old jump about 4 feet off the ground, literally screaming like a girl, and the cannister flying and then the look on her face when she realized what it was made it a rather unforgettable cache
  18. Depending on price, we're in. As long as it's the small ones. I wasn't as fond of the bigger ones, they lost a lot of their charm!
  19. Sent this to the reviewer that approved the cache....
  20. You are very welcome Shadow's Friend. I'm glad your Halloween Mission arrived safely. Knowing you and Randy and the quality of work the two of you do, I felt bound to "step up to the plate" with something special for you. It was wonderful meeting both of you and I hope to see you again and some Geocaching Event. I have been the lucky recipient of a Degai mission before and I just gotta say, she does incredible things in her packages! My girls are still enjoying the fairy book she sent amongst other things! Degai rocks!
  21. My apologies, Steph, thanks for setting me straight! The nerve of someone misguiding you Sounds like a great time was had by all!!
