  1. My condolences to Helmut's family and the New Jersey geocaching community. Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Helmut a couple of times, he was a quality 'cacher - his presence on the logbooks will be sorely missed.
  2. Perfect Tommy


    Please stay on topic. Bumping.
  3. Cool idea. I thought about an appropriate person who, to me, truly reflected the best that Jersey has to offer. Who better than Jersey's first superhero?
  4. . Two thumbs up. Congrats to both of you.
  5. You may also want to follow this thread.
  6. FWIW, the coords for the Alice in Wonderland statue are: N 40° 46.529 W 073° 57.994
  7. You certainly know how to celebrate a milestone. Congrats on 4 digits!
  8. Congratulations, Ed. Regards to Dillinger.
  9. The NY DMV offers customized license plates for 11 different regions of New York. This could go on forever. Stop the madness - just poll the NYGO members. Judging from this thread, you'll sell a bunch sight unseen.
  10. Congrats to an ubercacher!
  11. Tough crowd. Can't please everyone. My 2 cents: use the state capital building instead of the Albany skyline. When I first looked at the latest design, I thought it was the Battery. I think most Noo Yawkers will recognize the state capital building. Also the design will be a little less cluttered with one building. The simpler the better. I thought the simple I Love NY logo would be good but I note that it is a registered trademark of the New York State Department of Economic Development so you would need a license or permission. It may be too late in the day, but did anyone check any of the designs that were considered (but rejected) for the NY State quarter? There might be some ideas there. One way or the other, good luck with it.

  13. Congrats! Onward to the big M. Regards to Dillinger.
  14. Guess it depends on which of Kurosawa's samurai films you're talking about. Old Ben probably didn't have the heart to finish Anakin - he was "like a son". Also could have been pay back for saving his life nine times. The film could have been worse - Jar Jar could have had a speaking role. On/T Chewie has already been spotted visiting the Red Planet in the CT Solar System. Let the Wookie win.
  15. Didn't you get the memo? This is the Northern New Jersey Chat Room. Some of the states surrounding Northern Joisey, including the Pine Barrens to the south, have been included in this "Forum" for the appearance of geographic diversity. On topic: Anywhere along the Palisades is nice. GC29E5 and GC29AA come to mind as caches with great views. You also can't go wrong with any jonboy cache.
  16. Here is my log. This snake was no where near water but five feet up in the roots of an uprooted tree. I was in Depew Park in Peekskill in northern Westchester County, near Blue Mountain Reservation. Thanks for the help.
  17. A little help. I spotted this guy about five feet up nestled among the roots of a fallen tree. It was a little camera shy so I couldn't see the shape of its head (and I wasn't going to start poking it with a stick). Any guesses?
  18. If you've got a boat, you may want to check out this cache as well as this virtual.
  19. Ditto. Go rescue it. By way of example, this bug was MIA in an archived cache until it was rescued. You may also want to check with the cache owner about retreiving the archived cache rather than leaving geolitter.
  20. Because you're more likely to get mugged than find a parking spot in NYC? I kid. I kid. Seriously, of course there are dangers - this is Fun City. KBer's recent log on a cache in Inwood Park gives you an idea. Most cachers have had positive experiences visiting that park though, but there is always the possibility of a Dry Bridge moment. Trust your gut or, if you have really bad instincts at self-preservation, bring a friend.
  21. This may be your best bet.
  22. But Japan apparently is. I must have missed that memo.
  23. Off Topic: Yeah, those "industrialized nations" did a bang-up job from 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 finding solutions to their problems. Luckily, Americans with guns (gasp) were available to help settle their problems. On Topic: I don't carry a gun while geocaching but I respect the rights of others to lawfully carry. Who knows, rattlesnakes aren't the only things you might encounter on the trail.
