  1. I would like to see more of these pop up, they look really fun. You can post them on flashmob.com. You can see some of these on youtube too
  2. I really enjoy the peronal swag too, my boyfriend just got me the new print shop program and I came up with this signature card for us
  3. I was wondering if there was a place that put your actual picture on a geocoin? If anyone knows of a place I would appreciate it:)
  4. My boyfriend heard about it from the Travel Channel. They did something about the top 10 best treasure hunting activities. He asked me to look up the web site and the rest is history.
  5. I haven't seen this one yet, I can't believe it's not here yet. Follow the Yellow Brick Road. The Good Witch
  6. I just had another idea about the calendar. If the calendar is more of a scenery type calendar, then what the pictures can consist of is one giant shot of the general location of where the cache is and then around the perimiter of the picture put the letters and numbers like they do on a map and then the back of the calendar can say this cache is located at like "G 12", then if you want to,go to that picture and try to look for the general area the cache is in.
  7. I think that there should be a National and/or International Geocaching organization that should be created to sponsor community service type events around the country/world. Like a state geocaching event could sponsor a geocaching day for special olympics or some other special needs group and use the money collected from the calenders to provide food, prizes, etc for the event. The money could also be used to provide food for events like the CITO Days, geocaching holiday events, etc. So instead of giving the money to other organizations, we could have our own organization and use the money from the calendars and anything else someone might want to create to collect money for strictly geocaching related activities. Just a thought
  8. While using the bathroom in the woods you turn around and think to yourself "Man, that would have been a good place for a cache.
  9. You buy $100 worth of McDonald's toys just to put into caches.
  10. According to the publishers info that Barnes and Noble copied for me, it says... GeoCaching:Hiding, Hiking and High Tech is a guide to the relatively new and exponentially growing, activity of geocaching. It is a treasure hunting game using handheld GPS (global positioning system) receivers that is now played worldwide. Although invented in May of 2000, there are already hundreds of thousands of people who participate, and that number continues to rapidly grow. GeoCaching:Hiding, Hiking and High Tech covers not only the fundamental principles and points of geocaching, but also covers such related topics as wilderness navigation, hiking, and outdoor safety. The reason to buy this book is that it combines "how to" information, the necessary technical background in GPS, navigation, and hiking, along with some history of the geocachin activity as well as some narrative spots that give readers a sense of why they should get involved. The person who expressed interest in being the technical editor is well regarded in geocaching circles and highly knowledgeable and will ensure that the information is as directed to practical use as possible. This book is a comprehensive guide to geocaching, a leisure activity using GPS technology for a high introduction in 2000 and that has received wide coverage on television, on radio, and in newspapers and magazines. It is particularly popular with extreme sports and high tech aficionados. The technical editor that was mentioned, the name wasn't given? The table of contents in the book are going to be: 1: Introduction 2: Geocaching Basics 3: Geocaching and Navigation Technology 4: How to Navigate 5: Hiking Basics 6: Hunting a Geocache 7: Hiding a Geocache 8: Geocaching Variations and Related Activities. That's all the info I got?
  11. Hi everyone, Just out of couriosity I went to Barnes and Noble today and asked if there were any books on geocaching. It turns out that there is a new book coming out called GeoCaching: Hiding, Hiking, and High-Tech due to come out on Dec. 5, 2003. If you go to Amazon.com you can pre order it at a discount. Barnes and Noble told me the book will be 19.99 if I purchased it there (you can also pre order it there too). It is written by Erik Sherman and is 256 pgs. Just thought I'd pass along the info.

  12. Thanks a lot for the info. everyone. It actually sounds like a travel bug is a little more complicated than I had thought. I was considering once I started a cache of my own, placing something like a diary in it and hoping it would just kinda find it's way around the contry on it's own instead of placing a certain destination on it from place to place. I guess I would call it more of a traveling journal or log and hopefully it would find it's way back to me once it was full. I would explain where it started on the front page and ask that once it is full that someone pick it up and bring it back once it made it's full run? I don't know maybe that's just wishful thinking but it might be worth a try? Thanks again for the explanations. Nochipra
  13. I think I have a general concept on how a travel bug moves from place to place but I wanted to be sure. I think the way it works is someone picks up a travel bug out of a cache and then either takes it to another cache either locally or in another state. The main question I have is how do we let the owner of the travel bug know where it is once it's moved. I live in Va and I am planning a vacation taking me through ct and pa and was wondering how this all works if I take a tb with me? Thanks for any info.
  14. These characters are great. I like the homestar runner because he sounds like bill murray in caddy shack. The web site is hilarious. I fell in love with these little guys. Where can you find them?
  15. Hi, I would be interested in going to a geocaching conference. Things that I would like to see at a conference is workshops for people who are new to caching giving helpful hints and teaching some of the terminology that geocachers use. I would also like to see information tables from each state/country giving information about different clubs, gatherings,etc. in each state. Of course, geocaching contests, drawings, entertainment, vendors (like different companies that make gps system, perhaps they could sponsor the event)? I would suggest having a convention in each region of the country as well because some people will not be able to go cross country for a national convention? These are just some of my suggestion
  16. Thanks for the info and yes I did not mean to yell. I'm not used to posting and I don't know all the rules yet Thanks
  17. I WOULD BE INTERESTED TO FIND OUT HOW MANY CACHES THERE ARE THAT ARE CONSIDERED "HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE". I'M NEW TO THIS AND I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO GO ON MORE CACHE ADVENTURES WITH MY BOYFRIEND. WE DID OUR FIRST TWO CACHES TODAY AND I COULDN'T GO SEARCHING WITH HIM BECAUSE OF THE TERRAIN (I'M A WHEELCHAIR USER). I DROVE HIM TO THE AREAS AND HE VIDEO TAPED HIS SEARCHES AND THEN I GOT TO WATCH THEM AFTER THE FACT BUT I WOULD LIKE TO BE IN ON THE INITIAL FIND I WOULD LIKE TO START SOME ACCESSIBLE CACHES IN THE HAMPTON ROADS, VA AREA AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE WITH DISABILITES THAT WOULD LIKE THIS? THANKS
  18. How about a sex toys cache? Sounds fun, huh?
  19. My boyfriend and I are new to this but I think an email group in Hampton Roads is a great idea. I first visited this site yesterday and we went out today and found our first two caches. It was sooo much fun! We may plan to go to the picnic for local cacher's in Williamsburg next month if our schedule permits. I'm really excited about this new hobby
