Everything posted by Duncan!

  1. GB failed to mention that he was with me and he hit two milestones, 1200 and 1300!
  2. At least his name ain't Bobbit. D!
  3. Also a reg #28. Left three zoo pins. Thanks, D!
  4. That's funny. I ran across this guys profile today as well. Check out one of his logs he made a few days ago. Twilight zone I saw the same webpage today! You missed his earlier profile where he stated he survived being marooned on an island for three years, and something about being on a Mt Everest-type expedition. He also posted a DNF, complete with pictures, on the Yukon Diving cache a week before cache was to be hidden (the description clearly stated the date it was to be hidden.) The find attempt seemed suspect; read TT's log entry as he has deleted the DNF post. He also got some blood boiling here when he posted on the SCG website that San Diego caches lacked creativity.. I've had email conversations and he appears "sane"; I get the feeling he's just an animated character and means no harm. Chuy, you're feelings are right on. I talked to him at the Santee event and since via e-mail; Matt's a good guy (despite the feathers he may have ruffled). End transmission. D!
  5. The solitude is appealing to me, guess it gives ya time to think(?). Also, it's timeless, it looked like that a 1000 years ago and hopefully it won't change. D!
  6. Spectacular scenery, geocaches, a hidden palm oasis, geocaches, petroglyphs, geocaches, desert sunrises, geocaches, cool geological features, and did I mention geocaches?
  7. I guess Dan-oh sorta answered my question, but I'll ask it anyway. Has nobody placed a cache in the last few days or...? Not that I'm complaing, gives me a chance to play ketchup! I imagine were gonna get quite a flood of new caches...tonight? Nice fish, D
  8. I use MS Frontpage, then I copy and paste it into the submission field. Or, you could create an image for your puzzle (photoshop), especially if alignment is an issue. If you're using HTML, make sure you have that little "The descriptions below are in HTML" box checked in the cache submission form. Hope that helps, D!
  9. Bumping this thread back up to the top. I'll get the list of caches published soon...yeah, let's go with that. Duncan's Favorites D!
  10. I vote "yes", since I'm such a big follower. D!
  11. A Big BZ to Tombmaker for hitting 1000!!! How did this slip under the radar??? See it here!
  12. Picked up a Chuy and The Vulture from Blackboard Blues. D!
  13. Yep, new rules. I had several in the park that were archived. Not sure if I'll place any more... D! Bummer! Which caches did you just lose? The Palomar ones? Guess I need to get up there before those disappear. I just recently did the Palomar Divide caches and all those were OK.... Sorry, no. It was several in RCSP a year or two ago. I'm pretty sure the caches I have in Palomar are not in the SP. Maybe I should check... D!
  14. Yep, new rules. I had several in the park that were archived. Not sure if I'll place any more... D!
  15. Howdy y'all. For those interested, I received the following from ChuckB regarding cache placement in Rancho Cuyamaca State Park: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- State of California • The Resources Agency Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION Ruth Coleman, Director Cuyamaca Rancho and Palomar Mountain State Parks Geocaching Policy General Provisions: All requests for geocache placement in the Cuyamaca Rancho and Palomar Mountain State Parks must be in writing and submitted to the Park Superintendent at 12551 Highway 79, Descanso, CA 91916 for approval and authorization. Written approval from the park for each geocache placement is required BEFORE the physical cache is placed in the park. Any geocaches not meeting the guidelines in this policy will be removed. State Parks reserves the right to amend this policy. The park phone number is 760-765-0755. Required Information: 1. Proposed geocache location on a park map, GPS coordinates included 2. Name and contact information for persons(s) requesting authorization 3. Geocache container and site descriptions 4. Picture and/or example of cache container 5. Picture of proposed cache site 6. List of proposed container contents. Geocache Placement Requirements: -Geocache name must be clearly visible on the exterior of all geocache containers. - An “Official Geocache” green and black sticker is preferred. -Alternatively, “Official Geocache” and cache name must be written on the side of the cache in ½ inch letters. -Caches need to be public, no “members only” caches or “subscriber only” caches. -Geocache must not contain any food items. -Geocache must not contain any inappropriate, offensive, or hazardous materials. -Caches must be placed adjacent to already existing trails, within six feet of the center of the trail.

Requirements for Geocache Owners: Cache must be checked once a month and maintained as a family-friendly cache. When a cache is removed, the responsible party will deactivate or archive any online postings for the removed cache within 3 days of removal. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Once a month, huh? D!
  16. Traded for one of each at said location. Thanks, D!
  17. Duncan and I have one with the capabilities. We both have Verizon Pocket PCs - made by Audiovox; I only use mine as a PDA; Duncan uses his as his phone and has Internet access -brat . Both can be used as GPS with available soft/hardware. I think Flagman has one also - brat . It has GPS too? What is the model number? I may be mistaken, but if I understand it correctly, we would have to get not only software, but a small GPSr receiver (to hook up to the pocket pc). This explains it... Kinda defeats the purpose. I'm very happy having just two gadgets. Having it all in one I think would be a mistake, at least for me. D! Edit: Here is the pocket pc with built in GPS Another Edit: I do like the bluetooth idea, I could slap the little receiver on my belt and use the PPC as an all in one. I'm so wishy-washy.
  18. Oh great! Now I need to activate internet access on my phone. I'll need a good excuse for this one. So when are they going to come up with an all-in-one? GPSr, phone, palm, internet access, ??? Just think, PW would have ruined/lost only one machine instead of the two or three that he did! All-in-one. Who's gonna be first? D! edit: oops, not a phone, oh well.
  19. So... Is this where you have to go once you solve Duncan's Puzzle "The BrownEye of Horus"? That's just nasty!
  20. The only problem cachers I have encountered are the ones who get FTF before me! D!
  21. My prediction... <snip> The release of the Alpha Centauri geocoin (500 in gold-pressed latinum and 25 in unobtainium) will sell out in 9.045 nano-seconds. <snip> None in adamantanium?
  22. 2203 However, I am in California, not that stupid. However, gimmie a few hours... D!
  23. That black widow gives me the chills everytime I look at it! My contribution.... I know, don't ask....
