  1. Top of the loop it is? Can you post coordinates Dave. I don't have access to the web or my GPS right now.
  2. Ooh! Ooh! I know a good spot! Right in Kinnelon! Where I locked my keys in my car COOL! A geocaching version of You Got Served! Bring it on!
  3. Sounds good... lead the way Dave!
  4. The Washington Post holds a contest to find alternate meanings for various words. The following were a couple of the winning entries: * Coffee (n.), a person who is coughed upon. * Abdicate (v.), to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach. * Esplanade (v.), to attempt an explanation while drunk. * Willy-nilly (adj.), impotent * Negligent (adj.), a condition in which you absentmindedly answer the door in your nightie. * Gargoyle (n.), an olive-flavored mouthwash. * Flatulence (n.) emergency vehicle that picks you up after you are run over by a steamroller. * Pokemon (n), A Jamaican proctologist. Can you come up with any geocaching related alternative meanings, here's a couple: * GZ (n), what long islanders call the state on the other side of the Hudson * Cache Swag (n.), the strut ones does when they have just won a $2 lottery ticket
  5. And I just complimented everyone on the variety and skill of the caches in the Northeast! I completely forgot to mention that the NE forums were by far the most interesting read! No one in this thread has done any of my secret agent cache missions! So stop you're feuding and start findin' more!
  6. I have often wondered how much a spot of tea is? Anyhoo... I still feel we are blessed with the variety of caches around here: urban micro caches suburban park caches themed puzzle caches loop trail caches swamp caches overlook and vista caches historical reference caches well thoughtout multis specialized equipment caches - boat, night or climbing Yeah!
  7. Dave's Map is correct. Any idea on the distance? There are some others a bit north near a parking lot. Will you be in attendance Jonboy?
  8. All those are parking violations not tickets! Tickets are moving violations!
  9. The point of the group hike was so a number of people can get together and go on a nice, yet not too strenuous hike. We are not all up to your standard Jonboy, but I am free a couple of weekends later to do the loop you mentioned! I think we should do the Turkey Lake. We can meet in the parking area around 9 a.m.
  10. No you can't! You can be ticketed leaving a lot or entering a lot illegally, but technically you can't on a private lot. That's like getting a ticket while you are in your driveway!
  11. Congrats! Nice to meet 'an original' at the Long Island event.
  12. Two choices for Sunday: Turkey Hill Lake Loop - 9 caches or Appalachian Trail - no loop - 10 caches For simplicity my vote goes for option 1.
  13. JM, JM, JM... where do you keep them? In your geocaching purse?
  14. Placing drive up micros in a Wal-Mart, Home Depot or any other large store parking lot is against Groundspeak guidelines per say. It is on private property (that's why you can't get a speeding ticket in a parking lot! ) so shouldn't it not adhere to the guidelines unless permission is sought by the landowner?
  15. My experience in Florida and California has been a drive up micro or a long hike in the mountains (CA) or a swamp (FL). The puzzle caches involve you having to watch a movie or read a book?!? (Which is counter-intuitive to a nearly blind illiterate such as myself!).
  16. Congrats Dave! You still up for Harriman next weekend...? Only I can't hold your hand going around the caches this time since I promised my wife hers...
  17. Sitting here in Sunny California I can't complain. 60 degrees in the morning until 11 a.m. mist burns off rest of the day sunny 83 and NO humidity! Just kidding... We did special issue on weather at Scientific American and their forecasting models are suppose to read out to 7 days. (10 is toal BS) However, they only have a good 3 day forecast... which is strange since they screw that one up routinely... Maybe it's the globlal warming?
  18. There's not much you can do about newbie posts. Probably just fustration. I get all kinds of nasty logs (and e-mails) conerning some of my more 'creatively' placed caches where people are expecting a quick drive up... not going to happen! I usually send a polite email stating the reason for not giving the whole container identification etc. away because it may be something different and giving too much away ruins the fun. Although the ammo can hidden in a crevass... Hint: under a rock... is always a good approach!
  19. Just wanted to let you guys know that I prefer North East caches to everywhere else I have cached. They are generally well thought out and there is a variety. I have just finished a day of caching in Northern California, and they were all lame micros... 3 within 200 feet of one another and one actually in a store. Hmmm... guess the guidelines are really guidelines!!! Thanks and keep the Northeast a cool place to cache!
  20. Okay, looks like we can do multiple days. On the Sat and Sun. I need to do a little more research on Monday as to which parking lot. (I'm in CA right now and get back Sun). There are tons oh caches. But I would like to find a nice loop and a nice hike too. Friggin LI'ers! Hope it won't be too hilly for you guys!
  21. How does JonBoy know all these details? Too much information for me. Just watch out for bears!
  22. I vote for Squealy then he can whine about his blue dog to the media!
  23. I also have a 5 foot map of Harriman with ALL the caches on it if anyone would like it! Brian only has the cache events!
  24. August 8th, Sunday. August 14th is my anniversary and I KNOW I won't be caching that day (can someone forward this message to my wife. ) Besides there is an event on the 14th in NY state. I can go the 7th and the 8th.
