  1. You're not alone, Happierr. I too am getting to that golden age (56)where every item of food I look at puts pounds on. And the food that I actually eat really does a number. I used to count the days until I retire, now I try to estimate how much I'll weigh when I retire. Geocaching is also helping me to get up and get out and get some excersize. So,Good luck to us both.


    What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?

  2. Coordinates will no longer exist. The entire world will have designated waypoints and they ALL will be preprogramed into all GPS's. The world will be mapped out in a three foot grid, every intersection will have a waypoint desination. Therefore you will be able to get within 18 +/- inches of your cache. Accuracy will be to within one/one thousandth of an inch. GPS's will also work indoors and under anything and will be solar powered with a capacity to store power for two weeks before going to battery back-up. When on battery back-up the batterys will last a month under continuous use.

  3. Flat water Kayaking. I can get to where I'm going (which is no place in particular)easily, but getting back is the hard part. When you're 500 yards out in the river, all the shoreline looks alike to me. I use it to get back to where I parked my car.

    I agree with the majority, it's definately a not found. This also brings up a good point. Should there be a code that is issued when the cache is approved that only the hider is given that can be placed in the cache. This code can be required to log the cache as a find. The code can also be made up by the hider at the time they submit the cache for approval. Just food for thought.


    _BrownMule has a GREAT idea.


    On the other hand, you have different fingers.



  5. I voted that it was NOT a find. However, I had a similar experience with B & A Linear Diversion, waypoint GC81A1. I did NOT log a find but contacted the hider by email and explained exactely where the cache should have been. He said I was correct and said I could take credit for the find when it was put back in service. I was only into This sport one week when this happened (and am still a newbie. Caching only about three weeks now). I NEVER did log it as a find and after reading these posts I will NOT log it.

  6. Run a rubberband through the holes in a medium size button. then take a piece of cardboard about 4" X 8" and fold it in half (like a book). Place the button with rubberband between the fold ( but not in the crease) of the cardboard, and anchor the ends of the rubberband. Twist the button so the rubberband is tight. Secure the two halves with another rubberband. When the next cacher comes along and opens it, the rubberband will unwind and the button hitting the cardboard will make a noise that will suprise the calmest cacher.

    I hope my instructions were clear. I think you all get the idea.

  7. I am 56 and my caching daughter/partner is 26. I hid my first cache before there even was geocaching. About 48 years ago, I hid a coin behind an electrical box in the Washington Monument in Baltimore, Maryland. Even, way back then I reveled in the fact that some day in the future someone would find that coin and wonder who hid it there.

    You're never too old to have a happy childhood.

  8. I too am new to Geocaching, and finding that first cache was all it took for me to be bitten by the bug. I guess we all will remember that first find. One other great benefit for me was that my 26 year old daughter is as interested in Geocaching as I am and it has drawn us closer together than we have been since she was a young teen. For that I am very greatful. icon_smile.gif
