    What do you trade for that?

  2. Well my Christmas present arrived a bit early. Christian Andrew, was born on December 16th. Mom and son are doing great. I wanted to name him Magellan but my wife wouldn't go for it.

     

    I did get new vanity plates for my car: GEOCACH.

     

    Everybody have a great holiday! -Mark.

  3. Wow! All this secret code stuff sounds like the book I just finished reading; Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. Secret codes, treasure hunting with GPS's, lot's of good stuff. One of the best books I've read in years...

     

    -Mark.

  4. Well, good luck in Washington, the birth place of Geocaching. You've sure done alot for geocaching out here in the Tri-Valley and beyond. You'll be missed.

     

    Lamneth, Doh! I should have seen it. I was a HUGE Rush fan when I was younger (20 years ago!) and 2112 is still up there as one of my favorite albums of all time.

  5. Welcome Trish!

     

    Fizzy, I found a couple of your caches in Pleasanton Ridge. Lot's of fun. I had to look up coprolite, but it turns out my 11 year-old son learned all about it in school this year. I think I might have to look into private schools! icon_wink.gif

     

    Has anyone checked out www.venona.com ? Interesting bio...

     

    Fizzy, have fun on the cruise. Don't drink the water (or breath the air! icon_wink.gif ) -Mark

    If I recall correctly, I remember you mentioning that you took some pictures of Enchanted Crystals cache. Could you post them to the cache now that all the crystals have been found? I'd love to see it how you found it.

    Will do, although the picture doesn't do it justice. I'll try to get it posted in the next day or so. -Mark.

    Well George,

    While in Hawaii I followed your suggestion and found the Brady Bunch Evil Tiki. I attached a travel bug to it and will release it near Sonora or Knights Ferry this weekend. Here's the link: http://www.geocaching.com/track/track_detail.asp?ID=13687

     

    BTW I gave you credit...

    Did you get a chance to drop it off?

    Nope, I was going to leave it in Point to View, but we couldn't find it. After that, every cache we hit was a micro. I'll try to lose it this week. Maybe in Pleasanton. -Mark.

    "Why is 'Tourist Season' not mentioned in the Fish and Game Manual?"


     

    I don't think anyone wants to see me Hula! Unfortunately, I was there on business and didn't have too much free time. The little I did have I devoted to Geocaching. I've solved George's Test of Genius, but I don't get out to Patterson too often.

     

    I'll be going through the CV on my way to Sonora Friday. Maybe I hit a couple of caches along the way! -Mark.

    Yea, they don't have a whole lot online. Here's the official link Tao House.

     

    BTW, the admin at Ground Speak did not approve this cache due to it being on NPS land. I emailed her to inform her that it is actually within Las Trampas Regional Wilderness.

  10. Okay, so I'm in Hawaii for business this week (yea, I know, tough job) and after work I go geocaching to a cache with several Travel bugs in it. By the time I find it, it's dark outside so I reach around and finally feel the familiar shape of a travel bug attached to some sort of medalian. I put it in my pocket and when I get to the car I check it out. It's a soccer medalian from my home town of San Ramon. Small world! -Aloha! Mark.

  11. Way to go on #300! Very impressive in such a short time.

     

    I'm heading out to Honolulu tomorrow on business. I hope to hit my first out-of-state cache while I'm there. I'm also bringing a small Travel Bug with me from the Boston area.

    -Mark.

    I checked out the site, and was not too impressed with their selection. Based on what they carry, I would go with either the Merrell or Vasque brands (whichever feels more comfortable to you). I wear Montrails and have been very pleased with them.

     

    Try them on with the socks you're planning on wearing hiking. Also, if possible, try them on in the afternoon. Feet tend to be larger then.

  13. I can't wait to find this one. Hopefully, Saturday will be clear. Between moving, work and the kid's programs I haven't had time to do much geocaching.

     

    Maybe we can get together soon for a beer. Shoot me an email or call me. -Mark.

     

    Will cache for food

  14. Max,

    I've incorporated geocaching with the Scouts as follows:

     

    Tiger: Achievement #5 (Let's go Outdoors)

    Elective #35 (Fun Outdoors)

     

    Wolf: Achievement #7 (Your Living World)

    Elective # 18 (Outdoor Adventure)

     

    Bear: Achievement #12 B (Go on a Hike)

    Elective # 23 D&E (Make a Map, Mark a Map)

     

    Webelos: Incorporated it as part of Outdoorsman's Webelos Overnighter.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    -Mark
