  1. The only way I can see to do it is to go to an old event I attended and maybe add the pics to my posts. Is there any other way?
  2. I want to post the non trackable geocoins I have in my gallery pictures but how do I do it?
  3. I'm not a West Virginian but my parents and grandparent are from West Virginia, Logan County. Both my grandfathers were coal miners there. I was born and raised here in Virginia. I agree that WV has some really nice country and needs more caches.
  4. Anyone know if this can be bought anywhere? We were not able to go to a Geocoinfest because we had car trouble just before we had planned to go? Did anyone have one at the PA event? It is so cute.
  5. I don't mind taking the survey, here ya go. 1. How did you first hear about geocaching? We saw something about it on tv and we already had a gps so we decided to give it a try and have been hooked ever since. 2. Tell me about your first cache? Our first cache was at a little park on the beach here in Hampton Roads, VA. I am a wheelchair user and the terrain where the cache was was a little rough so Chip went to find it while I stayed on the phone with him. He brougt the micro cache to me and we opened it together and signed. It wasn't the best cache in the world but it was fun hunting it down. 3. Have you had any bad/scary experiences caching? I can't say we have had any bad experiences. Something that made Chip jump when he found a cache was, a cacher who had showed up just before we did had put a motion detector in the cache that went off when you opened the cache. I wasn't with him when he opened it, I was in the car with him on the phone because of the terrain again but he said he jumped a mile when he opened it and it started beeping at him like crazy. Wish I had seen it though, lol. 4. What is the #1 reason you geocache? The challenge is fun and the rewarding feeling you get when you find one. 5. Do you prefer to hunt or hide? We have not hidden any yet but I look forward to doing so, I do enjoy the hunt even though I don't actually get to do the actual hunting alot unless it is accessible. 6. What was your favorite cache place? Why? I'm sure Chip would tell you the few we did in Gettysburg, PA because he loves civil war stuff. Althought the beautiful park caches are really nice they are not reall accessible for me. I enjoy the creative urban caches I find (like the ones resembling a part of a light pole, not the LPC's, but the one's people take time to think out and build). 7. What was your worst cache? Why? The ones we have not found. We had a cache this past weekend in a park that we could not find. I emailed the cache owner and told them they may want to check it out. Come to find out it was there about 5 ft out of place but still there. Those are the ones that drive you crazy. We also had what I know had to be an LPC that we couldn't find but people after our visit did find. That one drives me crazy too. 8. Have you ever attened a cache event? We have gone to a couple of the local Hampton Roads Geocachers picnics. We were supposed to go the the PA Geocoinfest this past weekend but our van broke down. 9. Tell me your best caching story? Each caching adventure is an event in itself. We really don't have any cache finds or dnf's that we consider being the best. They have just been our typical geocaching hunt except maybe the previously mentioned one about Chip getting scared from that motion detector. That was pretty funny at the time There ya go, hope your paper turns out with an A+

  7. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...2f-f141c0840019 this is what I found?
  8. I like the idea of trackable because everyone can collect each others collectible personal coins? Is it possible to get the icon to include the name of each geocaching group?
  9. How do I get geoswag to send me an invoice on paypal, I don't see their address anywhere. I want to get a couple of the surf boards and a 80 days around the world balloon but I don't have a credit or debit card attatched to my paypal. I have the money in the paypal acct but it wont do it unless I have the card? I have the coins in my shopping cart
  10. OMG!!! I gotta do it!!! I LOVE POKER!!! So the total for 20 coins with our own name on the coin would be $119 total? Is that right?
  11. Congrats! We just passed our 50th mark not too long ago. We have been geocaching of and on since 2003 but with our health problems that was a big mark for us.
  12. Thanks for the suggestions:) It is a Ford E 150 Econoline van. I use a large van because I need it for my electric wheelchair and I have hand controls so it's not really like I can drive anyone's car or rent just anything although I did call some car rental places. They will put on hand controls in vehicles but they don't have anything with a wheelchair lift. The places that do have wheelchair lift vans cost way too much, around $100 a day which is way too much for me. I'll just have to wait for the next big event that comes close to where I live here in Va.
  13. Last night we went out to dinner for Chip's birthday with his family. On the way to the restaurant we heard our van make a strange noise but didn't think much of it at the time. The restaurant is just a little way from where we live. Well we checked it out this morning and it seems our van is leaking water. WELL! There go our plans for going to the PA Geocoinfest:( We can't get it fixed before saturday and I don't know if we should take the chance so we are going to be stuck at home. I JUST WANT TO CRY! I was looking so forward to going:( This would of been our first bigger event other than the local groups yearly picnics. I guess it is better to have the van break down b4 we go somewhere rather than on the trip though? It might have been a blessing in disguise although right now I can't really see it:(
  14. Any Tranquility Winsconsin Robin Unknown Soldier crystal fairy new sand dollar 2 piece coin Chip likes any of the coins with moving mechinisms or functionality (spinner dragon, mmmnnn beer, etc)
  15. Does anyone have a new geocoin coming out this month that I should save money for? I hate missing a new "hot" coin at the end of the month when I have no money left for coins?
  16. Oh WOW!!! I just came back to this post and I'm glad I did. Thank you sooooooo much, I'll pm you asap.
  17. Thanks for the fun Overthedge and congrat Dolfy
