  1. That's worth the drive alone! (hope she doesn't read the forums!) Great piece, they were able to simplify geocaching down to a couple of statements! Log on, type in your zip code... get out your GPS and start hunting...!!! Nah, none of you looked like Geeks! No really you didn't.
  2. Congrats! Glad to be there for your 100th. Great caching with you! You picked a real climb for the 100th What a view!
  3. Okay, on to the non-technical stuff. JMbella and Squealy - When you guys decide to do this loop together make sure you are holding hands so the locals know that you are taken. I now know why they named it Hariman (Hairyman) and Bear (Bare) Mountain - saw a nude couple by the lake. We stopped past the cache and just seemed to keep gawking at them! Lots of single people sitting on rocks too... Had a blast. Helmet was our resident Crocodile Hunter, frequently diving into the scrub brush and returning with a snake. Despite the 5.63 mile track log, I still maintain we did over 7 miles! I slept from 4 pm - 9 pm! I am looking to do either the Silver Mine series or another loop near Bear Mountain in the coming weeks if anyone else is interested?
  4. Hey Marty, I just tend to go for that mantra when placing caches. I am not placing them for a newbie to drive up and grab, but rather they need some thought, experience, luck and GPS skills to find them. Whereas, I would agree that micros should be reserved for situations that warrant them, I was merely pointing out that the drive bys fall under the same scrutiny.
  5. Okay we are meeting at around 9:30 a.m. so people can gather, be merry and whatever else, the parking coordinates are (and please don't all try and grab the same parking spot ) Parking is at the loop on Rt 6 at N 41 18.965 W 074 03.002 Bring some food for lunch and see you guys tomorrow, rain or shine!
  6. I respectfully somewhat disagree. Some caches are not meant to be found. Although it is evil to throw a micro over your shoulder. The challenge is finding the micro. If the cache owner wants to do that then we cannot suppress them into hiding only large ammo cans. But I do understand your point. If the sport is meant for GPS navigation why do we not have more multis or caches where you need to use your unit someway. By the same virtue, shouldn't the driveup caches in a local suburban park be under the same scrutiny as the micro in the woods?
  7. They have TV's at the Rib place.
  8. Congrats! Still have recovered you're Blue Dog huh? Friggin' LIer!
  9. Can anyone help with placing a permanent cache at a couple of the event cache sites. Black Jack's Loopy multi - ammo can and two match containers Powder Monkey - decon box Swing the Lead - ammo can LMK if interested, you will be able to log them again.

  13. If anyone is up for the cache missions (probably squeeze in 2 or 3) beforehand, I will be on call at 5:30 pm, my bus drops me off about 200 feet from Stage 1 of Mission 1.

There are also a letterbox and some others along the palisades... if we are heading back by 1 pm we can meet up and do some more! 475.... 473.... 472 my numbers are going down, not up.

  20. Hey JMBella, stop congratulating yourself for approving caches!
  21. Avroair + plus wife are 90% sure we will be there. We just have to discuss lodging. Are you guys placing a bunch of caches in the area? Like 12-18? Cause it looks like only one there right now!
  22. Man bag? It's a purse... Next you will be calling those pink thongs you wear boxers!
  23. Top of the loop it is? Can you post coordinates Dave. I don't have access to the web or my GPS right now.
