  1. Doesn't seem like a good idea to me...
  2. I got my Sportrak Map in December for Christmas from BestBuy. My dad and I got the extended warranty from BestBuy, I think we got a 1 year plan. Anyway, I don't think I have the original packaging (not quite sure) What are my options, can I send it back to Magellan and get a new one? It hasn't developed the cracks yet, but I'm almost sure it will... Also, will backing the screws off help much? Edited a small confusion in models...
  3. To lazy to email it so I'm posting here. TRIGO - Three Rivers Informal Geocaching Organization (Or at least that's what we think it means..) I think you'd probably want to contact Quest Master, because our current club president is just an imaginary sock puppet...
  4. That really is a cool thing... I think I might just make a few of those up, and leave them as trade items in caches, telling people to give it to those who don't understand caching...
  5. And to be more political correct, the approvers aren't volunteers, they're recruitees, most of the people who are approvers never said "hey, let me be an approver" most of the times, it was Groundspeak asking a potential candidate to become a approver...
  6. I really don't think many people will be able to relate stories to you, since moving caches have been outlawed for some time now, but I could be wrong, there could be tons of them...
  7. I was going to edit my post to include the new link, but I guess it's just too old...
  8. This would take quite a bit of work on my part, but it's still in the planning stages (I'm going stir crazy with all this snow) At Presque Isle, in Northwestern Pennsylvania, there is a lord of the rings multicache. Basically the caches are located in one trail system. At each cache, there is a multiple choice question about the book, each with coresponding coordinates, only one is the right answer, and the right answer gives you the coordinates to the next cache, otherwise, you're sent on a wild goose chase. So basically, the idea would be to place a cache with a question something like this, with one coordinate set leading to the next cache, and all the others into nowhere.... What is the name of "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe?" A. Milkyways (wrong coordinate set) B. The End (wrong coordinate set) C. Milliways (correct coordinate set) D. McDonalds (wrong coordinate set) And so to make it to the last cache, (presumably three or four stages later, you'd have to have a a fairly good knowledge of the book. This would probably end up being maybe a 2 for terrain and 5 for difficulty since you need special knowledge... So what do you guys think? Just for reference, here's the cache page for the LOTR cache similar to the one I'm planning for THHGTTG click here
  9. I think the occasional area that might require some skill/cunningness to get the cache would be interesting. But I pity the people who live in cities where ALL the caches are in parks where they are mostly park and grabs with tons of muggles lingering around... I think it's a nice challenge, but also a pain in the a** if you're not expecting it. Which is why I like to see alot of times, what park the cache is in (helps me figure out wether I'll be running into lots of people or not.) And some people are even nice enough to put in their cache descriptions, "The cache is in a very populated area, please be inconspicuous when grabbing the cache, if for some reason, you are unable to replace it, please take it home and email me..."
  10. I've never actually seen that site before, and right now, it's not working but I saw a link to it from the Department of the Interior website a while back..
  11. Who keeps tomahawks at a local airport? Also, where do you get the "Caution this driver may be geocaching stickers?
  12. This is a little out of my range, but what exactly is it?
  13. Sorry, sbell, little mixup.... The thing that comes into play is "what momma don't know, won't hurt her..." If you drive up to the airport with the stickers and the lightbar, saying that your there to check on a USGS survey marker, you're not really lying. And unless they ask you if you represent the USGS, you're not really mis-representing yourself either. I mean, obviously, no huge airport would let some genius just walk out onto their runway, I think JoGPS was talking about smaller regional airports... And from what JoGPS says he told the airport managers, I see absolutely nothing wrong with what he did. In fact, a lot of airports probably wouldn't want someone out on their taxiways without something flashing...
  14. I would like to point out that the original idea behind this thread was not coming up with ways to mislead the public. Just making a note type thing for putting on your dash when geocaching then looked slightly more official than a hand written note or something. It was not about seeing who could make the most official looking parking permit or anything, but that's how people, including myself reacted to it. And when I posted mine, I admitted that it would probably be a federal offense to actually use it. You say you should try to explain yourself, and not try to misrepresent yourself, and then you say it's wrong to try to say your a "volunteer" to be able to check on a benchmark. So why can't people explain that they're simply looking for the benchmark to see if it's there and that they're not directly reporting to any USGS official, but they're helping out.. By the way, according to my good friend Merriam Webster, a volunteer is a person who performs or offers to perform a service voluntarily. So technically you are a volunteer if you spend your own time by going out and checking on benchmarks and sending a report to the USGS on it's condition...
  15. I just bought a collection book with all 5 books in one, and I'm really liking the first two books so far.... It's amazing how many good quotes I could pull out of that book, like.... "The monkeys who were so easily amused by their digital watches..." I don't think that's direct, but it's just one of those funny things that they say in the book...
  16. Check out the regional forums and ask down there, someone might be able to help you with a handoff or something...
  17. That is so freaking awesome. I want so bad. Maybe when I get my Jeep I can outfit it with something like that... Got any more pictures of your element in action?
  18. The mods are all very nice people and most of them have real jobs. And along with working, caching, and approving caches, they don't need to take crap from anyone at these forums...
  19. I've ended up setting my GPSr on top of my van for about about half an hour before going geocaching so it could get a good and hearty sat lock...
  20. Thanks Co_Admin, that's all I really wanted, and seeing as that, you're an approver, your answer is just about the best I can get, so I'm locking this topic...
  21. Yah, but if we did it on earth day, we'd just be a bunch of scmucks cleaning up a park. By having our own separate day, we get to stand out from everyone else...
  22. Okay, I just thought of this question the other day. Could an event cache just be some sort of community event that you were inviting people to? What if you challenged them to actually find you during the event to count as a find? What if it was planned for cachers to meet up in a certain area, or maybe if a local group had a booth at the event or something? Basically, these questions just sort of popped into my head... Like here's an example, could you make an event cache, a county fair, and just sort of inviting people to come to the fair? What exactly constitutes an event cache? All these questions sort of popped into my head at once and it really confused me...
  23. I think she looks good, but maybe screw around with the colors...
