  1. I don't seem to be able to find the tab, and know nothing about why challenge caches were removed. Can you help?
  2. Just a personal note - when I am using my Blackberry to geocache it is very very hard to read text if the page has a busy picture background. We recently cached in Puerto Rico and were totally frustrated by a couple of caches we wanted to find, but could not because the text was not readable over the top of a busy picture.
  3. Vern, No one laughed the first time you felt you needed to be gross. No one is laughing the second time. Not funny. Grow up.
  4. Will go to the Trip Advisor's forum. Just found this on the State Dept Web site. Makes me think that we should leave the GPSr at home. Disappointing. http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1758.html
  5. We will be traveling to Russia at the end of April. In searching for infomation on caches we might find there, we found some information that posessing a GPSr in Russia (if not a Russian citizen) is illegal and can result in confiscation and being jailed. Does anyone out there have any information on this? Have any of you geocached in Russia? Our route is from Moscow to St. Petersburg (via river cruise) Thanks in advance for any information you can give us. Please email to rubeeslpr at aol dot com
  6. Another WI geocacher here. I have heard absolutely NOTHING about this execpt from the poster who posted it, himself, iin several places on the WI boards. I suspect an overactive imagination is at work here.
  7. Hey, that's what I had in mind.... but tcan you make the font a bit clearer. You rock! Love the idea of the yellow brick road.
  8. We are Rubeeslpr (as in Wizard of Oz) We kind of like our avatar, but wonder if there is some way to incorporate the Geo colors? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Not tied to this particular ruby slipper........perhaps someone has a better one. Thanks in advance
  9. Replying to my own question.....last night they were missing. Today I see them. Perhaps it is just my computer.
  10. Been gone for a while and when I returned to the forums, the avatars are missing? What happened to them?
  11. Our sig item is a die cut Ruby Slipper magnet. We leave a sig card at every cache we visit, and our magnet at many. We have collected lots of interesting signature items, and many sig cards. Other than these things, we rarely take anything from caches. Our reward is the hunt!
  12. Our sig item is a Ruby Slipper magnet. We also leave a sig card in each cache we visit.
  13. Sending lots of positive vibes your way for a speedy recovery! Rubeeslpr
  14. A few months ago a fellow cacher gave me the name of a person who can make the metal geocoins.........and I corresponded with the maker. He sends the coins overseas to be "minted" Due to some computer problems I have lost the name of the person to contact to get the coins made. Can anyone out there help? An email would be appreciated if you have any information. Thanks in advance. rubeeslpr@aol.com
  15. We did our membership by check, also. It took over 3 weeks for the check to clear and for our membership to become active.
  16. We have been making our own sig cards, and laminating them. We put them in each cache we visit. We also have sig stickers that we put in log books when we sign. Just our way of having a little fun. When we find a sig card (that we do not have) in a cache we take it as a trade. Actually sig items are just about all we take these days. However we always try to pump up the swag and add goodies. We leave the other treasures for other cachers. "It's the journey.......not the destination!"
  17. As we were unpacking from our Thanksgiving weekend trip, I happened to take a break and log on to the geocaching website, only to find out that a new cache had been placed in our community....the first new cache in a long time. It was dark, and cold, but we bundled up, and took Whizzer the geo dog and went on the hunt! We found it with the help of two flashlights. What a fun time we had. Perhaps we will do some more at night.....
  18. Our thanks, too, from here in Madison WI! We appreciate all your efforts to get the boards back up and running.
  19. I would LOVE to find a geo coin. We have 100 finds, and have not yet run across one.
  20. Rather than TNLN when the caches it looking a bit bare, I just leava a few nice things and take nothing. That way at least the next finder will at least have an option. quote:Originally posted by Natty Dread:I . I have also decided to TNLN or leave something when it is looking a little bare. Also why not try ww.orientaltradingcompany.com. Great ideas for a good price.
  21. Signature items are not easily found, here in Wisconsin, either. The one thing we have been able to find is Two Hot Dogs off Trail's items - two tiny plastic hot dogs. Other than that all we have found have been sig cards. (and not many of those either) However we keep looking
  22. I also have done some sig item trades via snail mail. Fun to see what others have as their sigs. I usually leave our sig item and another trade item in a cache. We also like to leave CITO bags in cache.
  23. I have a couple of additional "sig item" questions. 1. Does anyone out there have several signature items, or should it be kept to just one? How about a sig item AND a sig card? 2. Should a person leave just one sig item in a cache, or a couple of them?
  24. Yes, email me your address. Sorry I got confused, but I will get mine out to you right away!!!!! Thanks...... Rubeeslpr, you still owe me your sig item. I'll e-mail you.

  25. Thanks to all the traders who have sent sig items to our team in the mail!!! I was out of town, and do not know which ones our team has sent out to you. If we "owe you" sig items, please email and I will get them right in the mail. I would just like to say there are a lot of creative cachers out there. I am so impressed with what you have created as your sig items. Team Rubeeslpr
