  1. Now I will have a new cache out in a couple of weeks, I will let you know how fast this one goes, as it will include to get a cache archived that is at the same position. Maybe it will take 30 minutes, maybe it will take five days. Most people will need more time to find it, than it will take to be activated, so who cares?
  2. Better make sure that the other container doesn't open. Already saw ones in the news that a live one was found while unloading a dumb truck.
  3. I must say I had no problems with the one cache I have in Texas. I also must say that every time I send a message to the PR, the answer to it was in less than 24 hours. I send a message last night and the answer was given this morning. Now to the OP, placing 64 caches, most of them along a road really can wait a little longer. There are people that actually try to make caches an adventure, make it so you need to think about it. These ones should always come before the lets put 500 caches on a 5 mile road strip to get more hidden in my profile.
  4. Thats what I was thinking...I would rather have an ugly working A/C, then a 90 degree house with a fake pretty shrub. Could it be just to cover it up in the winter (for us northern folks that get snow). I think they can be used year round. It may be made from mesh so that it can breathe. Still they will use more power to cool down the house. I would plant something around it as it would actually help the AC.
  5. Never found a cache on a dumpster, but I did once find a piece of velcro that once held a cache on a dumpster, and the cache was by ashnikes, and the dumpster is probably where he got his cache containers from. The cache is this one http://coord.info/GC29RCB (hope I don't get banned for posting that link ). Funny thing is, the person I was caching with that day actually went back when the cache was replaced. He was quite something on this forum. I got a feeling hes history but he left a good mark and people wont forget him, ever! I did some googling today and foundthis Not sure if I should laugh or what! Who is ashnikes?
  6. Something I did today while hunting Nanos in/on guardrails....if your cell phone has a front facing camera, use that to look under and around the innards of those guardrail ends to see if you can spot the cache as well as any bees, spiders, or any other antisocial critter that might be there. That is a nice tip! For sure I will make use of it one of these days! Or just use a mirror and a flashlight.
  7. In Germany I most;y see lock and lock's, here in the USA I find mostly ammo can's for regular sized caches. Never found a wet one. Here in the area we have too many micro caches so when you come along a ammo can this is a very rare find. And if a cache would get stolen, the next time I would chain it to something.
  8. Anyway, the cache is archived, the reviewer knows about this problem, and I would never put a cache right there as this is a children playground.
  9. At least he talked to you, someone shot in my direction when I was looking for a cache that had the permission of the property owner. I wonder what kind of permission he had given.
  10. People take a NM log personal. The last time I posted one I got some offensive words back in a notice he wrote as an answer right above it. If the owner is one from my area, I send him a message, and in this area, we take care of others cache anyway, so in case its fixable on side the most finders do this and only tell so in the log.
  11. I found one cache under a trashcan, but this was the only thing in a radius of ten miles, besides the fence and the road. So this was a great place to put it. Never saw one near a dumpster, maybe I am in the right state where people have more possible locations to hide it.
  12. Do you have a picture of the Carousel Horse? And the Signal Bouncer?
  13. Now here in Lubbock, other cachers are happy when the finder of a damaged or maybe stolen cache takes care of it. As a good example I have this one here: GCJPFY When I found it, it was on top of the hiding place and someone wrote something nasty into the logbook. So while relocating it, I send the owner a message and he updated the location until he has time to go there. And yes he thanked me for taking the time of doing so, I hope he would do the same for my cache. As you guys can see, it got muggled again, and a different cacher relocated it again. The one in question I checked at least ones per week to see if a new container came up, but after this long time, I decided to put one there so that people actually can log there visits in a log book as it should be. When I logged it online and said that I put a replacement up, I got a kind of offensive message as notice on the cache listing. So if the owner doesn't want a replacement as he showed to me, I am on my way to pick up the container, but nobody has be become offensive for someone that tries to help. And more than one person logged it noting that there is no log book and nothing else. I think it's wrong to log without having a cache in your hands, this would mean everybody that walks by could log it online no matte if they found it or not.
  14. Now there is this cache in my area: GC3C0XR, and it got stolen about two month ago. So when I found the rest of it I didn't want to log, I thought tell the owner that it's stolen and wait for a log book. I did this and nothing happened, so I placed a replacement container there yesterday and logged it. When I came to log a different cache a couple of minutes ago, I saw that my log was deleted. So I logged again, and again the owner deleted it. Is there anything I can do that I keep the log, as I not only found it, but made sure other people can log at it too?
  15. Now here is the problem. Today I was asked to evaluate mapping software. The company I am with, needs this software to display points, addresses or graphs in the map. I have these software to evaluate: Maptitude MapPoint ESRI-MapIt RegioGraph TerrAlign GeoAccess GeoCoder MapLand GoogleMaps Now I was wondering if anybody here knows these software and can tell me a little about it. I know GoogleMaps, so I don't need any help with this one.
  16. And here something else out of the German Thread. It means more or less If we have luck he will get catch (what's the sec. form of catch?) on the exercise range in a missile and get shot to the moon. I think i told schmitty that i am an PATRIOT IM guy, i was in Fort Bliss for training.
  17. Oh by the way, the other thread says more or less that i lie and i hold some TB's for over one year or two. It says that i had problems with some people in the cologne area because i said that some of the caches that were 4 or 5 stars rated were to easy for me. One of this caches was that you had to climb on hill for about 200 meters and after this you had to go down. In my BDU it was no problem to get up und i was riding on the sohle of the boot down. So i said it should rated lower. It was this one: GCH919 But with the same people i had problems, i it did this Cache: GCCD1E So i think this makes it even. EDIT: and thats how some germs are (i know what germs means) detour was digging everywhere if he can find things i did wrong. and yes i did, but until now i never lost a TB or Coin. He only made me missing one. His one. Now he tells everybody that i hold the other Coin and TB for 5 Month or so. And that i didn't put them in an cache in FRA like i wrote.
  18. Please check this, the droped coins and the time they have been in the hands of T_W GCYD2M It's only about your Coin. I never said that i am an angel. Your Coin is out. And like you can read her some owners know that there TB's and Coin"s sometimes get lost in the backpack of the Cachers. An yes in my backpack i lost several. But i found them all the time. Mostly after i finieshed moving in my new apptment or at my new desk at work.
  19. Yes walking is good for me. And in germany in liked to walk very much. But not in Lubbock, where you have no sidewalks. the Last time we wanted to get to one cache thats only 5 km away, it took us one a safe route more then two hours. And then we were still 2 km away from this cache. The only possible way was over an 6 lane street for this 2 km. Do you think i want to get killed by the people here that never saw an petestrian. And in this case i had a child with me. By the way i dropped all my TB"s and Coin"s off. A friend cave me his truck, so i could get to an other Park. But detours Coin was already out of my list.
  20. He still sends me mails via GC.com after i told him he should never send me one again. Where can i report him? We planed to walk to a different park on sunday, i hope there is a chance to drop his coin. If i have no chance to drop it i will probale send it to someone.
  21. Yes i am talking about this Coin. Thx for all this answers. I am happy to be here in the Country and glad about all this friendly people. I told him in my last email he should do what whatever he wants to do, and should not send me any more mails. I will place this Coin ASAP if the Cache if it still there. If not he has to wait until i get my mountianbike back (the Container from germany still takes two weeks) or until i get a car.
  22. Hello, i am here in Lubbock, Tx. I moved from Germany to this place some weeks ago. Now in Germany i picked up a Coin, but because of the movingstress and so on i forgot to log it. After is did and i told the Owner that i will place it in Texas he started to tell me that i have to place the coin ASAP. Right now i have no Car and on Foot it's not realy so easy in Lubbock. The only Cache i could walk to where Coins would fit is for the last 2 weeks under water. First the Owner said he will press cacharges agains me. I told him he should go on. Then he told me if i don't place the Coin in a cache in the next 48 hours he will tell Geocaching that it's Lost. GC104RH is the Cache and if you read you will understand that i have to wait undil the water goes down. So should i do something? Because i will not send this coin on my expenses back to germany and like i said i have to wait at least one week. But he doesn't understand.
  23. Two emails sent your way You got mail
