  1. what are you talking about? I don't care if it's a hot topic.
  2. Unless you get a personal note from the cache owner politely asking you NOT to be the FTF, go ahead.
  3. Congratulations on your weight loss, Star!! And, gvsu4msu, I laughed my cache off on that comment!!!!
  4. "what is the ultimate geocaching vehicle?" One that runs. ; )
  5. my first hide was rather pathetic (but the spot was a gem). I was at work itching to get it out and riffled through my desk drawer. Found two huge glue sticks... and STOLE THEM... considering how much of my personal time I give to work on a weekly basis, I'm sure I paid for them a few times over. Anyway, I had brought the black cloth tape and my GPS with me to work, cammo'ed it quick and added a log book. Had to put a piece of paper around the perimeter of the glue stick container because of the residue. And unfortunately the "stick" down the middle of the glue stick prevented any swag options. Needless to say, I've swapped out the container for a better-cammo'ed one and am looking forward to replacing the other of my eager-to-put-it-out-and-poorly-done caches. With winter brings more free time indoors to make properly cammo'ed and more interesting containers!!
  6. I ask my son, "are THEY watching". Chances are, nobody is around to watch. If "THEY" are, we'll find something to do for a while so they have an opportunity to leave. I was only asked once (in a neighborhood park) what I was looking for. Since I was scoping out a spot to place a new cache, the answer, "NOTHING" was quite appropriate.
  7. I've fallen flat on my face twice--once in a manicured park and once in the woods. Each time my pride fell flat as well, and after I got the wind back in my sails, the earth continued to turn.
  8. I'm just kidding. My eight year old comes with me on hunts, so I have to tailor my hunting needs with his hunting preferences. We often try and intersperse a "regular" with the micros and smalls so he has an interesting toy for the car trip 'round the pond.
  9. A friend of mine conscientiously writes down the details of each of his finds--right down to the minute (and probably second). I'm not nearly as... detailed... as he is. I do get that way about my garden, however!!
  10. hollow trees are awesome for caches--if only they would just stand still!
  11. nothing wrong with a duplicate post... more reason to wahoo!!!
  12. Right now, it's too cold for me to get out there. Seems my third and fourth toes get cold before the rest. Can't wait until March (when it may start to thaw)... first stop, however, will be to check on my caches and get 'em outta the snow!!
  13. I was walking around JoAnn Fabrics after fixing up one of my caches and found something strange in my boot. A fellow cacher's wooden nickel fell out INTO my boot when I moved the contents of the cache to the new container!! I have a wooden nickel collection and was pleased to add it to the bunch!
  14. even if there were a storefront, would you welcome the resultant cachers? they may be excited to get into the game, and perhaps they'd last for a while, but if they peter out after placing a few caches of their own, then we're left with geotrash. Dunno. It's kinda like scrapbooking--hit or miss, a little pricey to start, and a passing fad for some.
  15. I think adventurers are born and some become geocachers.
  16. I always check out the satellite view so I can see where to park. If I work out the route well, I can triangulate it so I come back out at the car.
  17. the online geocaching stores are all I've needed.
  18. I don't think it's a conspiracy. I think someone was just hoping that something more interesting was in there, and since people are lazy they were probably just littering.
  19. that's awesome!!! I've always wanted to get a vanity plate, but hubby wants us to save our money... drat! GO CACHING!
  20. granted, i work in a clinic and can remember all of our patient's names but can't for the life of me remember my neighbor's name.
  21. i'm lucky if i can keep the names of the parks (that i've hidden mine in) straight. They sound so similar!
  22. I was heading to an event and enabled the three caches I had hidden before the event. Unfortunately someone who wasn't going to the event was able to nab them before those at the event, so there isn't any guarantee that you'll get inside info at the events!!
  23. you guys have way too much time on your hands!!! Just kidding. I'd love to have a stretch of time (by myself and a buddy) so I can do more than 14 or so!
