  1. Go to this cache page and look through the multitude of pictures posted by The Leprechauns on January 19th. It might also be beneficial to you, to read the logs also, but I dunno. Just for the record, this was completely played out by The Leprechauns and Questmaster..
  2. That's a cool idea, but I agree with Carleen, there's entirely too much work involved...
  3. I thought of this idea today, and I pitched it to my dad, and he thought it was sort of a stupid idea... Make a normal style CITO container, with a plastic bag in it, and I thought I'd put a label on it that said to some extent "TeamK-9's Emergency Dog Poop Cleanup Kit" and people with dogs could take it and always have a bag to pick up poop if he/she does his business on the trail, or it could be used as just a normal garbage bag carrier for normal CITO. I was thinking about making these, and I thought they'd be cool trading swag, but does anyone have any opinions on this?
  4. It's actually probably your actual cell phone, and not the system. Like my phone, I'll be sitting in my school auditorium and it won't work worth crap, but I borrow a friend's newer phone and it's perfect.
  5. I think the ground attenas have a lot to do with cell phones working so well. I mean, GPS signals have to fight through the atmosphere, and then through buildings, trees and other obstructions, and the signal to start out isn't even as strong as a phone signal...
  6. It might work, but it would definately have to be in a controlled enviroment. I mean, you don't want a bunch of druggies running off now, do ya?
  7. Channel 4 (in pittsburgh that is) has test it tuesday, and every tuesday they test some random item they tested these a while back and they worked for icy sidewalks very good, but they didn't show walking through woods or anything...
  8. See, the thing you have to no is that poison ivy lasts a LONG time. You can be wearing long pants while out and about, rub up against some poison ivy, and it might not get through your pants, but if those pants aren't washed, the poison ivy can stay on them as long as a year, and still infect you... The moral of the story? Well, actually, I don't quite know...
  9. After reading all of both books, I still have no idea what those green ball things are...
  10. Awww, I really wanted to see that, and I don't even have that network...
  11. After going two weeks with only 3 chapters to go, I FINALLY finished the last book of the series last night, and I'm just as confused as when I started reading. Anyway, I like the prefix idea.... Now I just need a local cacher to help me set up my multi...
  12. My second day caching I went up to a state park about half an hour or so from my home into the mountains. Little did I know that even though the snow had melted in my front yard in the valley, there was still at least a foot on the trails and more in a lot of snowdrifts. I managed to hike out to one cache, which was a bit to technical for me since I was wearing tennis shoes and there was a whole heck of a lot of snow and ice. Then we drove down, tried to hit two more, but missed those too. Both were in small crevices in small rock outcroppings covered by un-small/massive ammount of snow... For then record, that was 3/3 DNFs for the day...
  13. You know I'd like to point out that there doesn't seem to be any solid proof that this "edict" is just coming out, just that there's a "word on the street"
  14. It's essentially what you're describing. It's just a fairly long fiberglass pole, sort of like a tent pole or something. Mine is just a cheap generic one, but basically, it starts out as one pole about the size of a ski pole, and then you add on little attachments for about 18 inches when you need more depth. Like I said, it's not a normal one, or standard, I'm not even sure it's actually an avalanche probe, but that sounds alot cooler than calling it my really big stick that I can make different sizes...
  15. I'm sort of 1.5, I'm not really a newbie, but I'm not really as experienced as 2
  16. That actually sounds like a cool idea, I like my trusty avalanche probe though...
  17. I was really pretty happy with the CITO shirt I found in the cache, but seeing as you're new, you have to releaize that these kinds of prizes aren't normall...
  18. How very observant of you. I was wondering who would notice. It's actually Railroad Tycoon II, but you were close enough. What else is on my desk? Okay, there's a four speaker sound system, a phone, a spray bottle, what looks to be a rollodex off to the right off the monitor (which I don't understand why you'd have a rollodex by a computer) 3 remotes on the arm of the couch, presumably for tv, dvd player, and either a stereo or a vcr, there's what looks to be a box for turbotax on the coffee table between the couch and the computer, and underneath the coffee table is sweet little Geody...
  19. Is that a game of railroad tycoon I see on the desktop?
  20. No offense, but erosion is caused by many many people being in an area. The average cache, gets as many as 20 hits in it's first year, but that number signifigantly decreases after that. Seriously, a cache may get 30 visits in its lifetime, or at most, some popular caches may get as many as 90 visits in during their existance, but the ones that get lots of hits aren't in fragile areas. These are good suggestions, but they aren't really necessairy...
  21. Keychains and stuff... If you go back a page or so there's a topic by SBPhishy called "Drumroll Please" read it...
  22. A plastic film type thing that when baked for a while at low temperatures becomes alot smaller but a lot thicker...
  23. When I'm planning on going out on a caching trip, I will look at the cache pages, read the descriptions thoroughly, and check to make sure some one has logged it recently. And I take a quick glance at the decoded hint. But once I print the cache page out, I make sure it's the encoded version. I usually end up decoding the hint again, because I forget what the hint was and I'm pretty much stumped, but hints can be very useful if they're written right...
  24. Usually, when it comes to hints, I'll read them quickly while I'm planning a caching trip, but then I'll print out the cache page with the hint decrypted. I then try to get to the cache, but then I usually end up using the hint. On several hunts, relying on the hint too much almost made me get a DNF...
