  1. quote:Originally posted by Papa Gold, Honey Nugget & Blade:Why is a round one not allowed? I have seen several round ones while looking thru these message boards. And have seen round ones on stuff that is sold. So why not???? It has to do with protecting their trademark. See here and here. Rhode Island Geocaching
  2. Do you do portraits? Rhode Island Geocaching
  3. Several months ago, I stumbled across a home page by a hard of hearing geocacher Rhode Island Geocaching
  4. JLS: Great idea for a signature item! And thanks for the images of your tag and spoon. We just placed them in the Geo-Creations Section of our home page. Team FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  5. It was very nice meeting you as well. We hope that you'll soon be back on the trails with an operational GPSr. Good luck. Team FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  6. Hoodoo: Not surprisingly, there is a lot of weird stuff in Wisconsin. So if you can't find what you're looking for, there appears to be plenty of off-beat alternatives. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching

    Look here for chat info. Rhode Island Geocaching
  8. Pastor, Do a google search for ''challenge coins''. I'll also email you the name of a couple of companies that have been used in the past for personal geocoins. Rhode Island Geocaching
  9. g-n-t: Go to the Geo-Creations Section of our home page and check out the area called Geo-Creations for Sale. Hope this helps. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  10. Step right up and see the amazing geocoins! Those for sale include USA, Texas, Canada, Green Man,and Joy of Geocaching. Or make or design your own. The only limit is your imagination (and of course, the Groundspeak logo usage guidelines). Rhode Island Geocaching
  11. quote:Originally posted by Cruzin!:Theoretically, cache owners are supposed to periodically replace log books and verify the signatures against the online logs, to make sure that people aren't logging caches they haven't actually visited. I didn't know cache owners were suppose to verify log books against on-line logs. I never have. I've never been worried about fraudulent on-line logs for my caches. Is this a west coast problem? Even if I wanted to verify finds as suggested, I wouldn't be able to do so for my first cache which was stolen. Rhode Island Geocaching
  12. Wad, as MOPAR pointed out, the stats page doesn't work for archived and members-only caches. Just something to keep in mind if you think your stats might be off by a couple. (By the way, the stats for Rhode Island appear to be both timely and accurate, given the aforementioned limitations. I just wish that the stats page would also include Bonus Caches. ) Rhode Island Geocaching
  13. <<<<<<< Okay, an easy one: Move ahead some years and tell me who this is. (Hint: His middle name is Herbert). Rhode Island Geocaching
  14. Check out this thread for some quick answers. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  15. Fro: Thanks for the link. The trademark issue in regard to the word geocaching is also briefly discussed by Jeremy on October 08, 2002. Rhode Island Geocaching
  16. I seem to recall that several months ago Jeremy indicated in the forums that although Groundspeak did get a trademark for the word geocaching, they will not pursue any legal action in regard to use of the word and that others should feel free to use the term. However, Groundspeak will aggressively seek to protect the geocaching.com logo trademark. So I believe you can use the word, but if you are going to use their logo, be sure to check out their guidelines in that regard. It would be great if someone could markwell this. I couldn't find the previous thread after a quick check, and I'm running late for work. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  17. I recently made an impulse purchase of some pace counting beads (aka: pace cords), and I've started using them while geocaching. Does anyone else use these things while looking for a cache?

  18. quote:Originally posted by joesingle:I'm still uncertain about how accurate to expect the unit to be. Sometimes it would read 20 feet from the actual find location. Is this normal? Getting a read of about 20 feet for another person's posted coordinates is quite common, especially if there is some foliage. It makes finding a cache a bit more challenging. It looks like your getting the hang of this hobby/sport/thing. Good luck. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  19. HartClimbs, I see that your from northern New Jersey. You may want to post your question on the Northeast Region Forum since those folks will have a better idea on the best way to tie your boots given the impact of the area's climate, altitude, and water-mud ratio. Good luck. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  20. I always liked the license plate on Seesthewind's and Redwoodmama's cachemobile. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  21. marginwa, For the best results when setting a waypoint with a SporTrak, stay in one position and allow time for averaging. If you mark the location too quickly and don't allow enough time for averaging, you may get a fairly large Estimated Position Error (EPE). Averaging and EPE are briefly discussed on page 34 of my user manual (and possibly your manual) in regard to the Position Screen. Good luck, FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  22. As Stunod pointed out, check out the Geo-Creations and Geocoin Designs Sections of our home page. We are always looking for new items to add. Today we included a link to PuzzleBug's Signature Puzzles and Signature Item Collection. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Team FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  23. Grim, see the geocoin section of our home page. If you are interested in purchasing pre-designed coins, check out the following coins: Texas, Canada, Green Man, Joy of Geocaching, and USA. I believe that the Oregon geocoins were once available for sale. MountainMudBug gives a good tutorial on how to make polymer clay geocoins, and Big Bad Trucker offers some good pointers for wooden geonickels. (And I would be very interested in trading a Team FISUR geocoin for an Ireland geocoin if you decide to make one.) Best wishes on your upcoming wedding. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  24. My team includes 3 children, and occasionally we take 3 and leave 3 items. As long as you trade even or trade up, there should be no problem. If you follow that suggestion, there shouldn't be any complaints. (And if you ever get a complaint, tell them to contact FISUR. ) Good luck. It sounds like you have your hands full. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
  25. Do a Google Search for "challenge coins". That will direct you to some companies that are out there. (I'll email you with a few company names as well.) Good luck. FISUR Rhode Island Geocaching
