  1. Had the same problem with the kickstand. Tried to put it down on picnic table and almost dumped my boy on his head. BTW, my son is about 25 pounds at 9 months and last time I used the pack he tried to fall asleep but kept waking up because there wasn't enough padding to put his head on.

  3. Ok...I'm looking for a backpack that I can carry my 9 onth old son in when I go caching. I've used a Kelty Kids pack before that my brother-in-law lent me, but it's a few years old and Kelty has changed their models since then. Currently, I'm leaning towards the Kelty BackCountry or Summit. I would love to hear what others have used and any advice on carriers.
  4. Whew...just had scary flashbacks of laying out TA-50 in the Fort Gordon Gym for Teir I inspection and Change of Command inventory.
  5. I have a Nikon Cool Pix that I got last May and I have turned into a big fan. 3.3 MP and under $300. Have yet to have any problems ith it. Son was born in November and we've taken roughly three thousand pics since then and been very pleased.
  6. Could have been the Blaster worm....just a thought....it certainly gave me quite a fit.
  7. One thing to be wary of is that many DRMO sales are by lot. Very seldom in my area do you get a lot of 50 ammo cans. More often than not, you'll get an ammo can and 1/2 a ton of old electrical cable or the like.
  8. Dont' know if you guys are familiar with www.meetup.com but it may be able to help you out.
  9. see my post in the general thread where you also posted this.
  10. Yes...we have quite a few in Carlisle PA that are within 2-3 miles of the interstate. email me and I'll give you the heads up or just do a search with zip code 17013.
  11. OK everyone. Easy.... As the Commisioner of the league at the center of this controversy, I feel partly responsible for this argument. Let's clear a few things up: 1. I started the league because I've been playing Fantasy sports since 1994 and love playing. 2. The league is composed of my relatives, buddies, and some cachers who joined at my invitation in the thread that Carleenp linked to above. 3. It is in fact a public league. Anyone who wants to can watch, comment on, dismiss, or insult the league. It goes with the territory. No one is lurking. 4. That is not to say that I approve of the comments made by others about the draft savvy of my father (Trung Candidate), but I realize that IT IS JUST A GAME AND IS NOT MEANT TO BE PERSONAL. 5. I appreciate those league members who voiced their concerns here and stood up for the league. We do have people who have never done this before and obviously, not everyone has the same strategy when they head into the draft. 6. The opinions posted by others who are not in the league, are not meant to be mean spirited. Simply trash talk. Maybe tinged with jealousy that they didn't sign up for this league where their superior intellect would have helped them rout us. (a little trash talking on my part) 7. I'm super excited about the season to begin not only our league but the NFL. The whole idea of fantasy sports is simply to let people enjoy the league as a whole and root for players that maybe are not on your favorite team. Heck, I got McNabb and I can't stand the Eagles. 8. Good luck to everyone...no mater what league you play in.
  12. Sorry, didn't mean to open up this can of worms. Just thought Lynn deserved praise for her accomplishments.
  13. Not sure, but I'll nominate CCCooperAgency. Over 3000 finds last time I looked. StormShadow
  14. not a joke....just think how well you would have done in this draft.
  15. As a matter of fact, the other yahoo league is now full and we have drafted. I'm sitting pretty with McNabb AND Gannon. Don't ask me how I do it, it's just natural.
  16. Well, the weekend was a sucess. Only had time to do one cache and Annebelle's Cache was .2 miles form the family reuninon site so that's where we went. We had 3 newbies with us and all of them thoought it was a great experience and want to do it some more. Thanks for the opportunity. Shawnee was much nicer than I was expecting and I would encourage anyone visting the area to check out the park.
  17. There are three slot s left in the Yahoo league and I can add more if there is more interest. To recap, it's free, it's open to anyone who wants to play, it's H2H, you have both a def team and def players, and, oh yeah, it's free.
  18. Just wanted to bump this up since I'll be headed out there next weekend. Thanks for the ideas guys. Any other things I should know about Shawnee?
  19. quote: I had McNabb as my starting qb with Vick (got in the 13th rd.!!! ) as my backup.. I don't believe you'll be able go that long w/o picking up Vick in either of the leagues discussed above.
  20. Glad to see we have some football fans here. Plenty of spots left in the Yahoo league. BTW, what are your favorite teams? Steelers fan myself and I admit....I still thought Kordell could do it for us.
  21. Thanks for the avatar gallery, Marky. I'm always amazed when I find out how much I don't know about computing. StormShadow
  22. Cache Info: 0$ New Hiking Boots: $100 Garmin Legend: $150 Not caring about the six feet of water you're standing in because you just found the cache: Priceless
  23. name: GCFFL (ID# 167672) password: "cache" That's the name of the free league I just created in Yahoo. We'll take up to 11 more teams.
  24. Very interested. Can't afford it. How about a free league like Yahoo or Sandbox? Any takers? StormShadow
  25. As a matter of fact twooldfarts, I have not seen the one in Las Vegas, but I did see the one in Giza. I lived in Cairo for about four months in 1996 while I worked at the embassy. You guys would be shocked at how small the sphinx really is. It always looks big becuase the pyramids are pictured behind it, but those pyramids are quite a ways off. I would guess the sphinx is about 45 feet tall.
