  1. I have the same issue. My stray cache is GC6 thousands of miles away. I also have the same problem as a lot of people with the map preview showing less caches then what's actually included in the PQ. I'm using IE8, up to date.
  2. Hello fellow Cachers of Ontario... The following caches of mine in York Region are up for adoption; GC1BJMW - Bond Lake: The Powerhouse GC1A52D - Fleury Park GC1GQRV - Hidden Oasis GC192Y7 - Wilcox Micro GC1DH1V - Mosquitoville - Oak Ridges Also, the following caches of mine in Hastings County are up for adoption; GC1YACQ - Not quite finished... GC1FG42 - King of Bowers Point GC1H453 - Trail of tribulation GC15K7H - Coby's Cache GC1EYWR - Taking history for Granted If the caches don't get adopted they will just be archived. I thought I would throw it out there to see if anybody would like to take ownership of them first. All that I ask when I sign them over to a new owner is that I get to post a find for it. Thanks!
  3. My choice is the Niagara Region. I'm keep trying to persuade my wife into moving there, but with her years of seniority at the school board, she's really reluctant to budge from York Region... I keep trying though as I hate living here! Nothing beats the Niagara Escarpment for a good hike in my books.
  4. I'm also seeing this "Sponsered Links" box on-top of my maps and I'm logged in. I sure hope this isn't the way of the future for premium members.
  5. I figured the views would be nice in the Autumn... I knew the spot would have something to offer other then an interesting route to a cache. This is why I'm surprised there isn't anything already there... I'm wanting to place a cache there, but at the same time I don't because I want to claim a find there. And I'm not the type of cacher to do something lame like posting a find on my own cache (well, except for the one time I claimed a find on Wilcox Micro). Oh well, if the spot is still available by the time I get out there, I'll place a cache.
  6. I'm just going to throw this one out there as it's something I would find useful... How about multiple "home locations" that would be interchangeable whenever needed. I have 3 different "home" locations and it would be easier to just select a predetermined location rather then re-search the address & city every time I relocated myself. Feasable?
  7. I did the same thing with Googling it and only finding the Golf Course, that's why when I set out to find it using the Terrain maps on Google I thought I had found it at the original spot I noted on the first post. Now I'm curious about that spot... Definately looks like a 5 star on the terrain rating... Either way, for the long walk in, or the steep drop down. I feel the need to explore...
  8. Well I'll be damned... The interweb lied to me. Looks like a fun area!
  9. While I was looking at a site about the Escarpment I noticed a rather neat area at the end of the Little Credit River in Caledon. Apparently it's called the Devil's Pulpit... Surprisingly there are no caches in the gorge... From what I've read it's a hell of a descent. http://www.geocaching.com/map/default.aspx...;zm=15&mt=p
  10. Heh... "the power". Sad but true.
  11. True enough... However, considering the cache and myself are in the same timezone, it's the future to me. Prime Suspect: haha! Best movies ever!
  12. I was browsing some local caches and discovered this... The last found log was for June 20, 2008. Devs know about this?
  13. Well, that was rather assertive!
  14. I think it doesn't really matter... As Tequila said, it's all about the fun involved. If anyone gets bent out of shape due to either one person making the find and everyone signing in on it OR one person signing all members present into the log book needs a catscan. It's for fun people, it's not a competitive sport / hobby / game.
  15. Was that an upcoming feature to the website to display the listed (but not private / secret) waypoints on the map? I kind of liked that for the time that it was working... Saves alot of time of cutting and pasting to get an idea of where things are.
  16. Hmm... I haven't read this forum in a while because I thought it was dead. Wow, what did I do?! I simply made a statement to be creative and *this* happens. Just because "you" (you know who you are) happen to like simpleton caches with no meaning what-so-ever doesn't mean that I / we can't express my / our opinions about the amount of suckage those caches entail. This thread is in regards to caches that have little or no thought behind them. I respect that you also have an opinion (and by all means you're entitled to it) that you're okay with these caches but lets stick to the topic here folks... It's "No Thought Involved". Nothing in the title refers to flaming other users who are against thoughtless caches. So, while you could post your opinion, it's not necessary to keep coming back and telling us to suck it up, stop whining, complaining, whatever. Time for the nay-sayers to move on to another thread and let the people who want to discuss crap caches discuss them without grief. And honestly, I'm not trying to be an a**. It's just retarded that some people can't discuss what they don't like without being objected. Thank you, Elvis has left the building.
  17. Yeah I just read that... Probably also a good idea to go by the book and make sure it's okay to place a cache on the property also. However, in some cases this might not matter like it did for me. Just make sure you're speaking to the MAIN manager of the property, not the shift manager that claims he's the "property manager".
  18. If it's not creativity, at least it's the thought that went behind the placement of the cache. In the end, there was something that made the trip worth while, whether it be a history lesson, a great view or a good hike / drive. That's what matters! Anything besides the numbers! If it was all about the numbers, I suppose we'd all be armchair caching.
  19. I know the one you're speaking of! This came after my initial rant on the boards... When my phone went off with this one I checked the cache page out and just rolled my eyes. ROFL! "which figures"... No kidding eh? I swear that guy just drives around the area waiting for caches to be published. And I read about the broken glass... So in short, the cache provides you with another "one" and also a potential trip to the emergency room for several stitches... yay! How about that Tony Robbins guy? He's pretty good at "neurological (re)programming" from what I read. Edit: Nice! I didn't see your picture of Matt Foley there! Perhaps we could set up a cache in a van down by the river in ode to the poor dead soul.
  20. I know, I know... Having a complaint, boredom and having access to forums are a dangerous mix!
  21. Good strategy! I may have to follow suit on that one. And I realize it makes me look like a hypocrite for what I said on my last post, but tit for tat eh?
  22. True enough. However, as I said before there is a difference between lame and easy. My entire reason about posting this thread was for the lame aspect of it. "Lame" intails complete and utter laziness on behalf of the person that placed the cache. Not so much on where they placed it, but the write up for the cache itself. It's kind of the same annoyance when someone logs a find and simply puts, "Thanks". That's a different pet peeve in itself though.
  23. Beautiful! I guess I'm really not offending anyone then!
