  1. The only reason Team FISUR (i.e., my family) is still clinging to #1 in Rhode Island is because of the archived caches. Without those, fredric from Massachusetts (:eek:) would have overtaken us weeks ago. So it is of extreme importance that no changes are ever made to your stats page. Ever. In perpetuity. Or until fredic moves out of area, whichever comes first.

  3. I was recently at a cache which was a few feet from the ocean. There were shells all over the beach and a couple in the cache as well. (And these weren't pretty shells either.) Such shells would have to be lower on the continuum than golf balls, but it was amusing to think that someone who forgot to bring some trinkets came up with the idea of leaving them. Or maybe it was a geocaching joke. I don't know.

  5. The H.P. Lovecraft virtual cache, located in a graveyard, went up yesterday. See www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?pf=&ID=38039. It's a good time of the year for it, and the cache will give me an opportunity to introduce the kids to a famous writer. (But what I'd really like is a good Lizzie Borden cache in Massachusetts. )

  7. Maybe I don't completely understand what you are saying. I'm paying for my Team FISUR coins on my own. There are no others who are going to "help" pay. And yes, my team (i.e., my family) will be giving them away as signature items. Are you saying I should charge my children? Now that's an idea. (Kids, get out the piggy banks!)

  9. I was surprised by Neuman's experience of not getting a reply from geocaching.com. We are in the process of getting Team FISUR geocoins which include a variation of the geocaching logo (they'll have a Rhode Island touch). We asked permission for the design from logo@Groundspeak.com, and we received permission in less than 48 hours of the request. Maybe they just don't like Texans. . Perhaps it was less complicated to provide permission since our coins will not be for sale.

  11. welch, the cache can be in any status. Any.

  13. Believe it or not, I'm sometimes involved in homicide investigations as part of my job, and on occasion find myself in the middle of the woods looking for shallow graves or other evidence. I now use the GPS I bought for geocaching to help me mark such locations. (How's that for a virtual cache?)
  14. Marty, we should have rephrased the question as the best geocache in your area so far in your geocaching experiences. That's essentially what we were looking for. Sorry for the confusion.
  15. welch: Haven't found enough? How about the best so far? Whidbey Walk: Found too many to choose one as best? Think hard, there has to be that one that was especially dear to your heart. Step up to the plate. Team FISUR

  17. If you had to pick one (and only one) geocache as the best in your state, which one would it be? In Rhode Island, we'd recommend the Magnificent Mile Cache by Mike and Christine (www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?/ID=9026). It's beautiful and at times, challenging hike in the Long Pond-Ell Pond Natural Area. So what's your top geocache? (Not the top 10 or top 3, etc.) Team FISUR
  18. For the Lowest High Point geocache in the U.S., check out the virtual cache called "It's All Downhill From Here. . ." in Lakewood (Britton Hill), Florida. The high point is 345 feet. See http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=29081. Maybe people can start with this one and work their way up.

  20. Check out the Highpointers Club at http://highpointers.org. They list all the high points in the U.S. Rhode Island's is at only 812 feet, and there are a couple of geocaches near it (i.e., the Virtual Rhode Island Highest cache and Rhode Island Highest cache). I also believe there is a cache near the Connecticut high point.
  21. We have placed a number of books in the wild. Most recently, one of the kids placed a Bookcrossing book in the "Two If By Sea" Cache which is right along the Atlantic coast. The book is still there. See: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=23986 Only one person has been to this cache since we left the book. We hope the book finds a good home. Team FISUR
  22. My wife, a collector of lapel pins, has been saying the same thing for some time. Hopefully your posting will bring such pins closer to reality.
  23. This weekend, Team FISUR (family of 5, the youngest being 3) took the lead in having the most finds in Rhode Island, with only 43 finds (70 total). We realized a couple of weeks ago that we were approaching the lead, and we had a lot of fun with it. We don't expect to have the lead for long, but we're having a good time keeping an eye on the "competition". (By the way, that fredic from Massachusetts has been spending WAAAAY too much time in RI lately. )

  25. For me, it's all about the hunt. I really don't care what's in the cache. However, my kids clearly get excited when they find a quality cache. Obviously others do too. That's why we try to upgrade a cache that needs a few extra items, and we keep an eye on our own cache to make sure there is something for everyone. We recently added some geocoins, and they sure went quickly.
