  1. Try to get others (friends / colleagues / family) interested in Geocaching that lives in your area... Hand them your GPS, explain Geocaching to them, and let them find your caches... Hover around in the background, and enjoy their excitement when they do find it... Hopefully you passed on the virus, and they will be eager to go and find more... And before you know it you might have a small caching community going in your area... Next thing you know, they will want to place caches of their own as well... Problem solved... You'll have caches to find right there on your doorstep...
  2. What is the point in that? You will just create skewed numbers in your "Find" section... There are a whole lot of caches to be found out there... Rather go and chase those down, and know that your "Find" number is accurate... And that way you won't be at the receiving end of the gossip corner at Events... I will never "find" my own caches...

    Hip Hip Hooray... Tomtwogates made it into the 1000-club... Well Done Tom...
  5. Who said geocaching was about finding little plastic boxes stuck beneath rocks?... This sounds like a Lekker Event, where we actually get to learn something or see something that we would normally not know anything about... I'm sure I'll be there...
  6. One of the problems with these seriously difficult puzzles is that only one or two people really ever crack it the hard way... Thereafter it becomes a buddy-buddy situation... Horse trading becomes the order of the day... "I'll help you with a clue on this cache, and you can help me on that one..." As cache owner you won't always know for certain whether cacher X really cracked the puzzle, whether he got a nudge from a buddy, or whether his mate actually just gave him the whole solution, with final coordinates, the whole shebang...
  7. Mr. Carbon Hunter knows his rugby... Back in 1949 there was an air of arrogance in New Zealand... They believed that they were invincible... There was a tour of South Africa which included 4 tests... At the same time Australia toured New Zealand... So it happened that on the afternoon of 3 September New Zealand captained by Johnny Smith was beaten 11–6 by Australia in Wellington. That same afternoon in South Africa New Zealand captained by Ron Elvidge lost 9–3 to the Springboks in Durban... New Zealand went on to lose all 6 tests they played in that time (2 to Australia / 4 to South Africa). Over to you Carbon Hunter..
  8. Nope... On that day there were two "All Black" (main team) games... Legitimate Tests...
  9. O.K.... The All Blacks holds an infamous record... They lost two Rugby test matches in one day... What was the story here?
  10. I bought 6.. A full set for myself, and 2 as a gift for another caching team...
  11. I vaguely remember this bit of trivia... Definitely Ellis Park... Definitely Springboks vs British Lions... 90-something-thousand...? Back in the 1950s...?
  12. Spot on... Absolutely amazing to think that it was done in 1797. Incidentally it was done from a hot air balloon (close Edkin). Go for it Carbon Hunter...
  13. André-Jacques Garnerin did the impossible way back on October 22 1797 at Parc Monceau, Paris.. What he did that day, now gets done everyday by thousands of people all over the world... What did he do?
  14. I'll hand it to MadSons... I'm quite happy to stand back... My answer was a wild guess more than anything else... All yours MadSons..
  15. He was dead, but somehow managed not to fall off the horse.... ???

    CapeDoc.... Well done on reaching 500 finds... You would have made it to 500 a long time ago if you weren't so busy placing those awesome caches that the rest of us just love to find... Congrats on reaching this milestone...

    Where am I?

    FlyingSyringe --- Very close... The New Gariep Dam cache is on a hilltop below the damwall on the Eastern Cape side. loutjievdw --- Ja.. Die naamplaatjies is vir mense wat begrawe was op grond wat nou onder die damwater is. (Die nameplates refer to those people who was buried in earlier years on ground now covered by the dam). The multi cache that will take you to this spot is called "All over the wall" (GCVVVT)... Jou beurt Oom Louwtjie...

    This one is on my West Coast "To-Do" list... The plan is to take 3 days of from work sometime soon, and do a West Coast Road Trip... So my guess is The Bridge by CownChicken near Piketberg...

    Way to go MnCo... Seems like just the other day you got to 100, and now you clocked in at 700... Well Done...
  24. Got mine today... Sitting here clutching them in my hands, just like Gollum (Sméagol)... "We wants it, we needs it. Must have the PRECIOUS." Thanks Doc... They are Precious.
  25. Scandalous... How dare he write a sub-372 log??? I think a commission of inquiry should be set up... This is a serious matter indeed...
