  1. If you are in NYC knock on the nearest station door, ask the same question you will get the best and most direct answer. If help is still needed I have a cousin stationed E-236. I'm onna job in CT and will help.

    * indicates found along the way stuff.

    Changes in weather/terraine may ad to what I carry.

    If it's raining add an umbrella to protect the cache when open and appropriate rain gear.

    It's the little things that sometimes save the day.

    See todays log GCG0YR!

     

    I've only met one other cacher on the trail while more than 100 ft from a road "Z". His pack was twice the size mine was.[:lol:]

  3. How about "I-95 Book On Tape Echange -- Southbound" in Florida, Waypoint GCH016.

    or

    "I-95 Book On Tape Echange -- Northbound" in Georgia, Waypoint GCH013.

     

    I visited the southbound exchange and enjoyed a book I've allways been curious about on the way home. I'll be visiting these caches every time I go south from now on.

     

    I found these by using the "view map" feature and following I-95. It may take some time to search all the way down. Hmmm.... Maybe next trip I'll pick some caches to break up the trip. Thanks for the idea.

  4. Perhaps a printed page explaining what we are about?

    The new counterfeit resistant $20's are already being passed.

    Any moron (no offense to anyone reading this, unless the shoe fits)

    with a computer and printer, can manufacture any kind of ID they want.

    Carry a valid I.D. Have some type of log or printout of what you are looking for.

    Have permission before, be open and honest, explain second, run like hell third. icon_wink.gif

     

    Look at this from a muggles point of view.

    I see someone strange, acting suspiciously.

    We are near a bridge, water supply, what are they doing?

    Post 9-11; people have a right to be nervous. icon_frown.gif

     

    Be open an honest and IMHO there should be no problems, unless you really shouldn’t be there.

     

    BTW.

    From now on I will carry my wallet with me instead of leaving it in the car.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  5. In these 'Want it now,hate to wait, gimme, gimme, gimme' times we live, a mental re-adjustmet is required from time to time. icon_eek.gif

     

    Please, consider the past month just such a time for me.

     

    I am now spending almost as much time researching a cache on the net as looking for it in the field. Highway travel maps, topographical maps for bushwacking, and history of the area..... I think I am learning more this way. icon_smile.gif

     

    Thanks to everyone who considered my question worth the time it took to reply. icon_biggrin.gif
