  1. quote:Originally posted by Pantalaimon:Okay. Seriously. I'm attempting to police my own thread. I would greatly appreciate it if we could try to keep it on-topic. Does anyone have any actual information relative to my first post. Thanks! Pan Oops. Sorry. -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  2. quote:Originally posted by The Leprechauns: Just posting this to see if rectum is a trigger word. I guess it isn't. I had a Garmin AND a Magellan unit, but I rectum both. ------ -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  3. Didn't think so, but you never know. Seems like much ado. I don't see that trying to shut his site down is unfair in view of the whole kidnapped TB thing, seems more like a fair volley in his game. Threats? Too much. I can understand that people might be upset, but threatening them is just silly. Did anybody hear back from the police? Wouldn't it be a trick if the pirate was "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named?".... -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  4. quote:Originally posted by wimseyguy: quote: Troll: A person who posts inflammatory remarks specifically to elicit heated replies. I have often wondered about this one. Is the toll the poster or the post? Does 'troll' derive from an ugly creature under a bridge or the act of pulling bait through the water to induce a bite? It started as a fishing reference, trolling being posting something inflammatory and waiting for another poster to take the bait, but I think its wide use as a noun has brought up the Creature Under The Bridge image. -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  5. You could also describe coming across another geocacher caught in the act of opening the cache you;re looking for as "geocrashing." -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  6. quote:Originally posted by Cincinnati Bearcaches:Keys to a new BMW, but really thats not what caching is all about.... Seriously, anything thats not dirty, and that is unique/useful. We leave a lot of key chains, Mini tape measure, and Carabiner variety. They seem to get taken from the caches rather quickly. Compasses are good as well. Hehehehehehe! We hit a clearance on those Coast carabiner keychains, $1.97 each at a local store. Bought a bunch, and we'll probably buy some more. Small, colorful, useful, desirable, cheap. Sounds good to us! Compasses are great, too, especially when you know which way to go but the tree cover is messing too badly with reception. -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!

  8. quote:Originally posted by TMAN264:I am really sick of the people defending the pirate (2 people in particular, one of which is so annoying I wish very bad things upon him). I liked how the pirate included the physical threats made against him in his letter. See, that got his attention. Moi? *innocent look* -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  9. quote:Originally posted by Eswau: Well, not exactly. Read the US Patriot Act, and the Homeland Security Act. My other hobby is building and launching mid power model rockets, an activity basically now banned by the HSA. With all of the resources well-funded terrorists have available, the federal government is worried about non-guided cardboard tubes flying around (ironically remote control aircraft is still A-OK) - Not trying to get a Government/Freedom/Rights/Civil liberities string started. E There are quite a few rocketry folk here. Surprising, really, but I guess the same "geek" magnetism that attracts us to rocketry also works for geocaching. Maybe it's the "hunt it down" part?........ -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  10. There have been variations on this theme in the past, but it's one of those timeless subjects that may bring out some new ideas from time to time. Instead of what you DO NOT want to find in a cache (inappropriate items, McToys), what would you like to see sometime? Have you found things that are completely cool, totally unexpected? What were they? We're finding ourselves cleaning out crap from caches, and finding little else. We try to add things that might be nice to find, but it's always a challenge. So far we've minimized the Crap Shuffle. Hopefully we don't have to resort to that in a pinch. Yes, I expect this thread to deviate from topic, and there will be "keys to a new BMW" posts that appear. I also expect the "that's not what caching is about" responses. All fine by me. Think about it. What reasonable items do you want to find in a cache? -------------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!
  11. I'm curious to see what happens. I'm willing to bet that things reappear. Consider this: - Each one of us takes Travel Bugs from caches - Each on of us is supposed to place them in a cache when we've found "just the right spot. - Each one of us aspires to place a cache or two as part of the game. Other than assuming a character role and posting his finds on his own web page, how does he really deviate from a run-of-the-mill geocacher? I will grant that his call to recruit others may some cause people of lesser intelligence to assume that it's simply a call to plunder. However, anyone can log on and get coordinates anyway, including vandals. Vandals are going to do it anyway. It's a reflection on them, not necessarily him. -------------- You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching! [This message was edited by mckee on August 21, 2003 at 09:05 AM.]

  13. quote:Originally posted by mrkablooey:~robert _Notice: Driver carries less than $20 cache._ Not to totally derail this thread, but a few weeks ago I put an order together for bumper stickers with the "Warning: Driver carries less than $20 cache" thing on it, and the bozos screwed it up! And here I thought I'd been the first one to come up with this. You have the right to defend yourself, even when geocaching!

The price is also better than I've seen anywhere else. worldtraveler Excellent! You rock!
  18. quote:Originally posted by Mark 42:You're supposed to put the cucumber in the front. Now I understand why everybody behind me is laughing and pointing.
  19. quote:Originally posted by Mark 42:Maybe he didn't understand that the caches are considered property. I'd suspect he's probably a member here, and probably trying to make the game more interesting (for him/herself), as indicated by the stated intention to replace things elsewhere. Probably figures "everybody loves a rogue!" Not accurate, but a common misconception.
  20. quote:Originally posted by MtnLion: Perhaps I'll start stealing toys out of my kid's room and tell him it was Captain Hook that lives in the woods behind our house. LOL!!!!!
  21. quote:Originally posted by Pluckers:Looks like the site is now down, or rather, dismantled. Time to celebrate? I wonder if the loot will be returned, or if some real plundering will start in that region now. Probably the latter.
  22. quote:Originally posted by Mark 42: quote:Originally posted by mckee:Haven't the French suffered enough? _ No. _
  23. quote:Originally posted by Woodsters Outdoors: It's wrong, but it's still kind of humorous... Brian *ahem* I'm forced to agree. Poor Mr. Spock, in for a flogging if that other travel bug doesn't make it to the Space Needle.....
  24. quote:Originally posted by mogolloyd: quote: Just like Mom and Dad always told you "It's not hurting you, so stop reacting." My Mom and Dad never said that.... Just for the record.
  25. quote:Originally posted by bitbrain:In Portland, if I remember correctly, proper attire is anything black. Black shirt. Black pants/shorts. Black boots. It also helps to have tatoos and something other than an ear pierced. Hope that helps you... Oh. I wore shorts on all my Portland caching adventures. You forgot the coffee cup. Ironically I wear tank tops most of the time, and all but a couple are black. In Eugene you're only allowed to cache in tye-dye.
