  1. I have found "un-registered" geocaches, twice while caching! The first one was an interesting hide in a remote part of Zilker Park in Austin, Tx. It was hanging in a metal ring on the side of a tree? It had been found by others prior to my locating it, simply by accident while bushwhacking to another trail. I signed the log, took down the coords, and noted the name of the cache and the hider's name. After getting home I tried to research it and finally came up with the CO's name on geocaching, and they had not been active in almost 2 years. They had no active hidden caches, so I figured they placed it but never submitted it for review or maybe it was denied? Do not know? The 2nd one I found, last Fall, in a State Park in Texas, which requires a permit before placement. There was nothing in the cache just a few sheets of paper? This cache has never been published either, I'm guessing the placer did not realize they had to receive permission and pay for a permit before placing the cache and just never went back to retrieve it. I'm sure there are 1000's of caches like this World Wide! The next time I find myself in either park, I'll probably remove the geotrash.
  2. It appears the discovery,s "www" are all virtual! I found an image, after "googling" it, of the first coin "Garmin Colorado" just by doing that! So the coins image is in the virtual world for anyone to "discover".
  3. I NEVER send out actual coins anymore, only proxies! I usually will attach a laminated copy of my geocoin to the proxy, so the cacher could see what the actual coin looked like. It's unfortunate that this is what it has come too, but at least I can look at my coins anytime I want!
  4. The count has dropped more than 100 since I signed on 20 minutes ago!
  5. Hi, These geocoins were first introduced in November 2010 by geoaware see this forum: http://earthtrek.lefora.com/2010/11/17/talk-about-earthtrek-and-win-a-new-earthtrek-geoco/ They were also sold on the website geoearthtrek.com (which no longer exists). I bought a few of them back then and also the green back pack with the hand print on it, which I use for geocaching.
  6. I generally cache by myself with my 2 dogs. They are Labs and are great caching companions and I don't feel vulnerable, as a lone female, hiking trails by myself! That being said, I would definitely find an event that you could hopefully attend with your family, or alone if nothing else. Also, I would go after the caches that are easy to hike to from your house. I think if you found one friend who has similar interests as you, they would enjoy doing it also. Do you have any siblings that you could get to go along?
  7. Thanks for sharing the link to this unique puzzle cache! Spent a few hours today trying to solve this one (with a few good nudges from Clarinetqueen) I finished it! Yeah! Now if only I wasn't 1100 miles away I would definitely go after it! Great fun on a rainy day!
  8. yes...I have been experiencing the same problems with both the Geocaching & geocaching Forums website...no images are being displayed?
  9. Those are Wonderful! I would definitely order a few! Please keep us updated as to when & where to order?
  10. I would replace them high with the use of a step ladder...way out of reach! I also would probably just use reflective tape, instead of the unique reflective tacks. You can buy the red & white reflective tape at Lowe's or Home Depot. That way it would reduce the temptation of it being removed. I have several night caches and I have only used the tacks on one of them, all the others I used reflective tape that I can cut into any shape and then I use a staple gun to attach it to a tree or telephone pole with the use of a 6' step ladder. I have had no issues with anyone removing them.
  11. well..for one, I would like to be able to do a search for "archived" caches.
  12. First off...I would not put it in the same place as your "vandalized" cache was in. You should probably move it far enough away that it won't be obvious to whomever defiled it the last time. If it was a muggle who found it by accident? If someone actually located it by using the geocaching website, then you might consider becoming a "premium Member" and then only publish as a "PMO" cache. This would greatly reduce individuals who go on the geocaching website just to look for caches to destroy. I have made all of my caches PMO for that very reason. Good Luck!
  13. in the upper right hand corner of your geocoins web-page, you should see the option to "Edit your Trackable" It should look something like this: Trackable Options Add a Log Entry *Edit This Trackable Remove from Watchlist Upload an Image Print Info Sheet View in Google Earth You have to be logged onto Geocaching.com to do any editing though.
