  1. The old challenge icon that was done away with a few years ago would work.
  2. There used to be a cacher named nandonavigator I believe that would give cachers a ride out to the park and back to Sao Paulo. You can find his info back around the 2012 logs when I was there. Be prepared with money for the toll booths that you will have to go through. Sorry that I don't remember what the toll costs are. It was an experience of a lifetime when I got to go so I'd recommend the trip to anyone that can find a way to go. Good luck!
  3. Personally, I am glad that I had to go to Brazil to get the ape Cache. It truly was an experience if a lifetime. I will eventually make it back to Seattle area to claim this one as well but don't plan on doing it with 500 other people standing in line for it. It's much more enjoyable for me to find it without the crowds.
  4. The oldest Cache in WV was actually a bag phone. Someone must've cito'd it awhile back after a lock n lock was placed there to keep the log dry. An ammo can is a nice replacement though
  5. I just call them liars... Lol
  6. I've found unpublished geocaches by watching my geocaching in "insert state name here" page. It shows recent trackable movements. I click on them until I see one in an unpublished cache and then use that info to go find it. Lol
  7. Glad Sir Dave and I had the chance to go after this one. We loved every minute of our adventure from finding the rental car and getting thru Sao Paulo traffic to actually finding the ape cache. Junior at the park was a great help with us getting a room at the woodpecker lodge right at the trail head. I really want to make a return visit to do the day hike to the waterfall of death. Good luck to those going.
  8. Added my email to the list as well.
  9. I also think that virtuals have their place in geocaching, especially places like Washington DC or where physical caches just wouldn't work. I also see the flipside of how virtual caches could be abused and sine catchers would even try to make a virtual power trail or some other silliness. I'd suggest only permitting lackeys and reviewers to list a New virtual or locationless. Perhaps the new virtuals could be setup like the LAB caches that require an answer to be inputted in along with your found it log to reduce the amount of messaging answers back and forth. I'd also create 1 locationless cache, that'd be signal the frog. There has to be some sort of compromise between all the folks that want them and the naysayers.
  10. I think it will be ok... There are more to find, and plenty of reasons that Virtuals, if abused, would be archived unceremoniously. I don't agree at all. This one was a great virtual that can now never be replaced unless someone gets creative with an earthcache listing and thus recreating it with some simple geology "lesson". Saying there are others nearby would be like saying since a great cache was archived that trash in a guardrail down the road will give you the same enjoyment.
  11. I'm sorry, but can you give a link to what it is you're on about? http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GCK12J_last-stop-for-a-weary-traveler
  12. How can one of the best virtual caches in Washington DC just up and be archived with no record of an archival or reason posted? Its a shame if Groundspeak doesn't step up and do something to preserve a virtual in the nations capital. If there was ever a perfect spot for a virtual, it would be Washington DC
  13. About 5000 miles specifically for the last remaining project ape cache. It was a great adventure, even snagged a ftf that had sat for almost 2 years.
  14. I've found a few by looking at travel bug movements in my homestate. Every now and then I see one dropped into an unpublished cache. After a few minutes of researching it I have a location to go look.
  15. While we're at it, make signal a locationless cache so we can all have that icon as well.
  16. I don't pre sign challenge cache logs but if I did, I would post picture of log signed to aid the CO in verifying my signature.
  17. I saw one on ebay that someone was trying to sell for $2700.
  18. This guy found one of my caches. http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=56d1e006-7d65-4dd1-bc7d-268e95c5e676
  19. Here's a Sheldon inspired puzzle cache.. http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC3J73J_the-big-bang-theory
  20. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree then. One thing is for sure, finding it is another smiley either way.
  21. In my opinion it is a puzzle with a field puzzle. Multi to me means multiple physical stages (more the 1) If just additional waypoints make it a multi then every traditional with parking coords could be considered a multi?
  22. Still going but I plan to stop at 366. That'll be enough.
