  1. i live near Newark Liberty airport. Not sure where I could put one Artful Dodger, but any suggestions would be fine. No AMMO cans! My caches have already met one bombsquad! I will have to think about the area. There is alot of construction there right now. Avroair TB Hotels are a good idea, I used one in Orlando to great effect!
  2. Any suggestions for mapping points in New York? Every map and program I have used provides different coordinates!?
  3. i am disappointed you didn't mention Verona Park North in your hard to find cache, your log still keeps me laughing, excerpt below (sorry to do this to you! ): I was doing errands in the area and decided I was going to go for Avro's Green Man cache. Good thing I checked the website before I left, or I'd have been out on a wild goose chase. That's quite a story! Anyway, I decided to go after the Verona Park caches, figuring they'd be quick and easy finds. This one was pretty easy...at first. Got to ground zero and found the cache almost immediately. The only problem was that my hand was too big to fit in the hiding place to retreive it. I actually felt it with the tips of my fingers, but couldn't get a grip on it to remove it. Close, yet far! I then fashioned a tool using sticks, but they didn't do the job and in fact, they pushed the container deeper into its hiding place. It had been floating on water in its hiding spot and I think I may have breached the container and caused it to sink. Sorry! . I was determined to get it, so next I tried to build some stairs out of nearby materials to give myself a better angle. That didn't work, so I went to my car to find something. Well there was a lawn chair in the back (I had used it for ice fishing the day before), so I grabbed that. I got some odd looks from passersby as I walked through the park carrying a lawn chair, on this dreary, snowy day. Using the chair, I was able to get a look into the hiding spot, but the container was no longer visible. I guess I really screwed things up. After close to an hour of trying to retreive this thing, I gave up and headed over to the VP II cache. My apologies to Avroair messing this one up. Update: the cache is still there, despite the extreme beating. The log is now soaked and I will replace the container soon, in exactly the same little hole
  4. What about your other two Boxer Mom
  5. Hey people, Just curious what people think are the toughest 3 caches in the Northeast. (Not that I want to try them, I just want to be aware of them!). And, no, you don't have to have completed any of the three. All answers on a postcard.
  6. E-mail has been sent. I discount group ticket for Avroair please.
  7. Thanks for your kind words Bee Gees.

    Night Sweats

    I was thinking of meeting earlier around 6:30 so by the time we get out there it will have turned dark. Avroair
  9. I think it was more for the power grid 1/2 a mile away. But it only takes one person to make the call. Apparently, but the end of the afternoon the building had evacuated 3 times. There were reports of anthrax, reports of a bomb exploding and reports of Barry Manilow cds being found in the cache... talk about playing the game Telephone!
  10. The person logging the find: that distinction would go to Bee Gees. His half of the story was alot scarier :
  11. Just a reminder to people that since the Homeland Security laws have taken effect to be careful about placing caches under or near gas pipelines and powerlines. If my Greenman cache is any testament: I placed the cache on Sunday, February 15 in a small secluded swamp parkland with a clearly marked trail. I had researched the area and found it to be a public park with the Lenapee Trail running thru it. Off I went to place my exciting cache. After approval the first cacher who tried the cache was seen by a nearby office worker who called the police to report suspicious activity. The police arrived and found the cache without a GPS unit (pretty impressive!). They called in the bomb squad who used a robot to open it. I was contacted thru geocaching.com to come down to the Police Station since the state were filing charges. Oh my gosh!!! I was in a panic and left work early. I brought my mum with me (I am 30 and married for 5 years, but I figured a little old English lady couldn't hurt my cause). I sat there for 30 minutes and was finally interviewed by a detective. Apparently, my little patch of public, county land happened to be near highly sensitive government builidings, 4th largest powergrid in NJ and a gas pipeline to boot. I got off with no charges (although my wife later liked the idea of deporting me back to London), and I signed a testament never to place foreign objects back in that area. The dectective returned the cache to me, (I was a little disappointed the bomb squad hadn't signed my log!). PS: I understand that any more caches placed in that area will automatically be graded a 5/5 due to the high risk of outrunning the law and the heart rate a geocacher might expect to go along with this endeaver! All humor aside. Just a reminder to think before placing a cache in that oh-so-prefect spot and research the area thoroughly first.
  12. Congrats! Your next 100 is already in sight!!!
  13. Well done Kber. Let's hope you reach the half millenium soon!
