  1. If memory serves, I think you have to land on the Entering the Forum page for the updates to be transferred into the forum. Either that or logging out of the forum and then logging back in. I just don't remember which. Try 'em both and if it doesn't work, maybe someone else knows the answer.
  2. No one ever said you have to own a boat to retrieve this cache. I know of at least one place in downtown Poulsbo where you can rent a boat. Better yet, if you find someone through this thread that is going, you can help paddle! There's hope yet to get this on your "found list."
  3. Just to confirm: It is officially for the 3rd of July. It appears that there is great tide weather for the 4th as well. There will likely be people ashore on the 4th setting off fireworks, but the free burger offer will expire on the 3rd!
  4. Paddle your way onto Liberty Bay for the Independence Day holiday! This is an open invitation for all cachers to come and hunt my cache, Liberty Bay Resort, in Poulsbo, WA on July 3rd, 2005. Then come ashore and take a load off before heading back out on the water. There'll be a party going on there anyway so you might as well just join on in and get a burger while you're at it! High tide for July 3rd is over 11 feet; plenty to retrieve the cache and make it to shore. You can also view a graph of the tides for July 3rd, 2005. Low tide that night is still plenty deep enough to retrieve the cache. Feel free to stay ashore until the fireworks begin (around 10:30pm), but if you don't have lights on your boat, you may want to retreat back to your car before dusk. Details: July 3rd, 2005. Anytime from 4pm - 11pm. Log Liberty Bay Resort cache. Be sure to visit this cache page as there is information about where to park and put your boat in the water. Mingle with the local Corvette Club (also owns another local cache, Corvette 50th Birthday Cache). Please RSVP by sending me an email and I'll make sure there's an extra hamburger and soda for you. Stay for the fireworks (approximately 10:30pm). Have a safe and happy holiday weekend everyone!
  5. I promised a list of hotels, so I'm finally getting around to it. There are probably more, but these are pretty handy according to my copy of MapPoint: Westcoast Silverdale Hotel 3073 NW Bucklin Hill Rd Silverdale, WA 98383 (360) 698-1000 Cimarron Motel 9734 Silverdale Way NW Silverdale, WA 98383 (360) 692-7777 Poplars Motel 9800 Silverdale Way NW Silverdale, WA 98383 (360) 692-6126 Bird's Eye View Bed &Breakfast 8226 Kaster Dr NE Bremerton, WA 98311 (360) 698-2448 Continental Inn 1783 SR-308 Poulsbo, WA 98370 (360) 779-5575 There are many more in Poulsbo or further south in Bremerton, but these seemed close to the start. Plus, if anyone is looking for a freebie, there are a few offers of lawn space above!
  6. A tent in my yard! Silverdale is going to be the best bet as that's where the start is. I'll see if I can scratch together a list of places to stay (where you pay) unless someone else beats me to the punch.
  7. Holy cow! 5,000 lbs?! I'd buy in. How's this work?
  8. Looks pretty cool! One traffic revision note: 6:05 AM 21.2 mi Turn LEFT (North-East) onto NE Gluds Pond St [NE Gluds Pond Rd] for 0.1 mi 6:06 AM 21.3 mi Turn LEFT (North) onto Brownsville Hwy NE for 0.7 mi Where Gluds Pond meets Brownsville Hwy has been blocked off. You will need to direct traffic further down Wagga way to where Brownsville Hwy meets (at the light).
  9. A SUPER Congratulations to your family! Things will never be the same, but you won't want it any other way. So, how do you like the pull out couches? Not too bad, eh? It's been 19 months since I was sleeping there!
  10. What I'd like to see is a half/half on the same face of the coin where 1980 is on the left and 2005 is on the right. The right side, 2005, can then have the hiker with a GPS, small plume, white snow, blue sky, even a red lava dome. The left, 1980 eruption, can be devoid of color.
  11. That's pretty sweet! Any way you can do a half/half of a before/after? Sorta like 1980 on one half and on the other half 2005? I'm just curious, but anything with Mt. St. Helens in it gets my vote.
  12. Even though it is similar to 2004, I can't believe anyone could consider passing up a 25th anniversary of Mt. St. Helens. I'd really like to see Moun10bike's 1980 eruption on a coin. You'd only need two colors: black and gray!
  13. Sour all you want! I'm in the state and I'm still waiting! PS. I'm still patient. Take all the time y'all need to get the job done. PP.S. Any news on the "lotto" results? Who got low numbers? How many orders? Something to pass the time...
  14. Or, better yet, see this post. That one has some response from Jeremy in it.
  15. ... and, yup! Leave the height= part off too if you don't want to provide it. If you aren't providing the height, you can probably leave off width= too! Just don't be afraid to try something and see how it works. Just keep going back and tweaking it and you will get the hang of it. That's how 90% of us did! Good luck!
  16. By whom? Here's a good link: Cache Approvers.
  17. I actually never understood that. People volunteering to a for-profit company, serving company interests. Strange. In a normal world these people would be democratically elected by cachers, and they would represent the cachers' interests as opposed to some commercial listing service's interests. Great. Now we are going to have to pay to get our cache listed! Just kidding. Ya, know what? I do understand that. I'll help volunteer to support something this cool. All this bellyaching and whining against this company just makes me support it financially and voluntarily (were I to be asked). Wake up, dude. This is the normal world. Cache volunteers are hand-picked from regional geocaching organizations who have proved their mettle; similarly for forum moderators. They do represent the cacher's interests and the commercial interests and not the interests of the vocal, and quite eloquent I might add, minority. Crap. This has gone way off topic. ... uh... MOC's rule. Phew.
  18. Want to know why I've got a Member's Only Cache? Ask me. You can use this fantastic free feature to send me an email through the website. Lumping people into groups and trying reading people's mind as to why they have one is really annoying. Don't guess. Ask. Oh, BTW, it's 90% traffic reduction, 6% feature for other members, 4% user tracking, and 0% elitism.
  19. Here's the basics. First, check the box that indicates that the content you are providing is in HTML. Second, enter the following to make an image appear on the page: <img src="URL" height="h" width="w" align="placement"> Where URL is the web address of the image you want to place on the site. You can right click many images on the internet or images you've uploaded to your profile and get their properties. h is the height of the image. You can leave this out and the browser will determine the height of the image automatically. w is the width of the image. You can leave this out and the browser will determine the width of the image automatically. placement is the place on the page you want the image to appear. Common values are "left", "right", and "center". This is also optional. You can see some image examples in my profile page. Good luck!
  20. Sure! To start, go to the Track Travel Bugs page and in the upper right, enter the code found on the metal travel bug tag. On the next page, be sure to indicate you got the travel bug out of the cache listed and fill out the form. That's it! You will now see them in your inventory. When you log future caches, you will have an opportunity to drop them off by selecting them on the log page. Good luck!
  21. Why does the Crimson one have to be the smallest?
  22. Scratch my "align=center" option. That didn't seem to work too well. Try this instead: <CENTER><img ...></CENTER> BTW... I think the right alignment you are using is better anyway!
  23. Someone should come along with a handy-dandy reference for a lot of HTML coding tricks. Here's the basics. First, check the box that indicates that the content you are providing is in HTML. Second, enter the following to make an image appear on the page: <img src="URL" height="h" width="w" align="placement"> Where URL is the web address of the image you want to place on the site.

You can leave this out and the browser will determine the width of the image automatically. placement is the place on the page you want the image to appear. Common values are "left", "right", and "center". This is also optional. You can see some image examples in one of my caches, Corvette 50th Birthday Cache. Good luck!
