  1. Put a log book, a travel bug and a McToy in it, then leave. If he's a geocacher, he'll find it, leave the McToy, take the travel bug (but fail to log it), write "TNLN" along with his moniker in the log, and close it back up. If he's a caver, he'll throw the stuff into a campfire. If he's a hunter, he'll use it as a toilet ("logging the cache" takes on a whole new meaning here). If he's J5, he'll put it somehwere else and fill it with stuff. If he's ElectricShavers, he'll log the travel bug online as taken and then left in the same cache" without signing the physical log.

    We have Hobo spiders here. I've seen recluse come in on freight shipments, but they don't really have an official foothold.

    Happy Halloween


    If you decide to break up, you can tie a travel bug dogtag to her toe and leave her at a cache somewhere.

  4. We did the Oakey Dokey ( http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=64c2756d-0e75-4c1b-ab72-6cd8f31c3f80 ) and Oak Hollow ( http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=8dc115e9-b142-4bd7-a7cb-0198b2de0d55 ) caches a few weeks ago. Both caches are located in Oaks Bottom. Today we just heard about this on the news:


    Teen arrested in Oaks Bottom rape case


    PORTLAND - Police have arrested 15-year-old Adam Higgins for the vicious crime of sexually assaulting a woman at gunpoint. Police hoped the photo of a shiny black Volkswagen Golf would jar someone's memory. The car was ditched and torched in Gresham following the sexual assault.


    Police say two teens stole the car after they sexually assaulted a 26-year-old jogger at Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge last Friday. The teens pointed a gun at the jogger, attacked her, and then stole her car.


    Police say the prime suspect is Higgins, who attends Cleveland High School. "There's no good way to arrest a 15-year-old boy. The reality is when a 15-year-old boy sexually assaults someone he needs to be treated like anyone else that does that," said Sgt. Brian Schmautz.


    The second suspect remains on the loose, anyone with information is asked to call Portland police.


    Related Story: Police continue search for second Oaks Bottom rape suspect


    PORTLAND - Police continue to search for a second suspect accused of raping a woman at Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge late last month. Portland police think they know who he is.


    Last Friday, officers arrested 15 year old Adam Higgins, a Cleveland High School student, and charged him rape. Higgins and the second suspect also allegedly set the victim's car on fire.


    The suspect police are looking for is described as a white juvenile between 16 and 18 years old, and is between five-foot, 5 inches to five-foot 9 inches tall. He was wearing a dark sweatshirt with a hood at the time of the crime.


    A $1,000 reward is being offered in the case.



    Be safe out there, folks. You cannot be too careful.

    An amazing place. We went in from both ends. On one end we used our own rope, on the other we used the old brown rope icon_eek.gif


    Any more info will cost you a pint icon_wink.gif


    It's Opening Weekend for deer season in Oregon. Probably someone getting lucky.

    We've sent 4 your way amid some back-and-forth discussion, plus others have mentioned their entries in the thread. Were you still going to put up a link so we can see what entries you've received?

    Then say so instead of assuming a tone that is insulting at best, antagonizing at worst.

    The majority feel that, yes. The issue that I have been addressing is, how can something like this be done without destroying caches? Apparently I am not the only one who does not listen, who tends to race over the parts that don't suit their arguments.

    There are bad aliens and good aliens. There are bad muggles and good muggles. There are bad pirates and ... oh wait. I guess there aren't good pirates.

    Then why bother allowing the discourse?

I only used moving caches as an example because they are no longer allowed and the reasons that they aren't allowed are similar to the reasons why "stealth" caches wouldn't be allowed.


    ...which puts the "pirate" part back in. The idea was to find a way for someone who wants to "pirate" to find a way that does not raid/vandalize/destroy another person's property (their cache). I'm only suggesting a way to do it that would not destroy another person's property.

    Are you implying I'm and idiot, or mentally retarded? The insulting tone surely can't be neutral or complimentary.


    Harry Potter doesn't exist. Why call non-cachers muggles? Why call them aliens if they are not from outer space or another country? Why call people cachers if they TNLN?


    Answer: Because we can utilize terms to fit the hobby without having to get all bent about the semantics.
