  1. Hey guys,


    These are some thoughts I put down on paper tonight. Just some random things that popped into my head that might be positive for the OGA to consider. I'm the new kid on the block and I don't wanna seem too instrusive or anything just thought I'd maybe make some suggestions :D


    Any who...





  2. Well, I only have two finds but I've been lurking for almost a year around the forums and what not.


    I've done a lot of research and am curently putting together my first two caches but won't be placing them until I knock off a few more caches.


    But I'd say if how YOU want to get involved and enjoy this hobby is to put together a cache, go for it.


    Do some reading, make sure you know the rules and you can only do your best :D

  3. Well I am in Toronto, Ontario Canada so we do for sure have cold spells. The problem is I have N O idea where to get ammo boxes. If I had the slightest idea I would for sure go with them.


    I've lookd around the net and I just can't find anywhere to get them in Toronto.

  4. Hey all,


    I'm planning on placing two caches in the area soon and am going to be going with a tubberware container type for it (yes I know lock and lock) :P


    Is there any way to help with hiding it (spray painting, etc, etc) any suggestions for using a tupperware container? how to make it low profile? or general tips for a first time cache placer ?


    Thanks guys :D

  5. I'm getting ready to put together my first two caches and I just ordered two of the stickers and two of the mini notebooks.


    I two things:


    1) It makes it look more official and just gives it a better feel if a none cacher finds it. It could also make a non cacher inclined to get involved.


    2) Groundspeak gets their cut from it and helps support our hobby

  6. Great to see you coming forward RJO, and as you may be able to tell from our web page we are still in the developement phase. Our web guru is doing a great job especially with all of the input he is receiving from various people within the OGA.


    Naturally we are not in a position to align ourselves with any provincial political party and the current situation regarding Ontario Parks is being handled by Cache-Tech. C-T will hopefully invite us to participate in future discussions if and when they occur.


    But any support you would like to give the OGA as a member would be fantastic. Be it organizing a CITO event for our area or helping prepare guidelines in addition to the ones we already have, or other areas that we haven't thought of.


    Case in point, White Owl came up with a very effective TOWNS idea that has received huge raves! So any additional content would be appreciated.


    :) The Blue Quasar

    I was not thinking of lining yourselves up politically, I act for several organizations on a neutral capacity as a government relations type. I'd be willing to help in that capacity with the OGA as well.


    When it comes to hobby lobbying its none partisan, its serving the best interest of the community :rolleyes:


    Any my offer is for hosting the site if its needed ever :blink:


    I'll take a look around the site and at whats going on and get involved other wise as well :)

  7. Hey there guys,


    I have a personal website and im putting together a geocaching section for the site. Is there any "cool" stuff that I can put on the page? Like stats or anything of the like that is auto generated. I've found keenpeople, is there any others?


    The more the better, as it'll just give the hobby's section on my site a "cooler" feel.


    Thanks guys B)

  8. Hey all,


    I've vanished since the summer as I had to deal with two elections here in Ontario and its been too cold to do anything B)


    Just wanted to say hey and am looking forward to being part of the community again :P

  9. Hey guys,


    If you are looking for someone to help with dealing with government I'd be interested in helping advance our hobby. I'm a light weight in the hobby (doing two caches last summer (waiting for the sun to come back now B))) but a VP at the association level in both the PC Party of Ontario and Conservative Party of Canada.


    I have a lot of contacts (as its what I do for a living) in government and I'd love to help out advancing this great hobby.


    Let me know, I can be reach at rjo@rynet.com

  10. The question was asked unspecificly for a reason. I was looking for a varied bunch of responses. Some for geocaching, some for driving, etc, etc.


    You all can be a tough audience sometime, its a good thing I've been modding forums for years and understand your desire to take shots whenever you can at people icon_wink.gif


    Thanks for the responses guys. I picked it up and we'll see how it holds up in the car today during my travels.


    Thanks muchly icon_smile.gif
