  1. On further reflection, I think that it certainly is a sport... if you choose to make it one. It really is a question of attitude.
  2. When going out backpacking for 2 weeks or more, it is necessary to purchase a minimum amount of "sporting equipment". Furthermore since a day on the trail usually amounts to about 25 kilometers carrying 30 kilograms and changing altitude as much as 500 meters it usually requires some physical training and preparation. Especially if you work a sedintary job as I do.
  3. Well my Jeep is a 4 cylinder. Sure is slow. Wish I had a 6 or 8. To me, you don't have a real Jeep unless the doors come off. Doors and top come off and fold up in the back seat.
  4. For me the answer has to be outdoor activity. I love to hunt, hike and backpack. All of these I consider sports. Caching is just an excuse to get outside or make unscheduled stops in unfamiliar places. Adds a small challenge to the otherwise ordinary routine.
  5. My '78 renegade was ALL JEEP! It also had A 308 AMC V-8 engine. Never has been a jeep like the C-J.
  6. I have kids (teenagers now) but I hadn't heard of them since I was a kid maybe 35 years ago. I didn't know they still made them.
  7. I agree, I think they are more fun to do without GPS, with one exception. In and around cities or other very public areas I prefer the GPS.
  8. use this page. once you enter coords you can go to topos or street maps http://jeeep.com/details/coord/
  9. Found the cache easily... I already knew where it was. Didn't read the log ... I already know what it says. I took nothin left gifts of Love, Compassion, and forgiveness. I also left a book detailing my most intimate thoughts, if only someone will read it. Jesus Christ
  10. I have to use it to repay the money I borrowed to feed my family through the winter. It is a bi**h being self employed. I have to loan the feds money, interest free, if I don't they put me in jail. Then because they have all my money tied up till next april or so, I have to borrow at usery rates from the bank. Let freedom ring!
  11. And judging from some of my cache hunts, they are correct. inaccurate is a relative term.
  12. Indeed there are lots of grey areas. We are dealing with civil law not criminal. Until it is tested in court, who knows what crosses the line. As one who is engaged in a business involving intellectual property and copyrights (photographs) I am very much concerned about the cavalier manner in which people treat them. If it were their work, they would not be so quick to rationalize or justify the theft!
  13. Jeeze, I feel older than dirt! They're givin' you a number and takin' away your name
  14. An excellent point. Here in southern Ohio, there are very definite and pronounced terrain features. This no doubt makes it much easier. In flat land I would add one more instrument we used to use in the military. A good measur or scale. An accurate ruler would serve well.
  15. I often use maps and compasses. I teach orienteering to an outpost of Royal Rangers (10 to 15 year olds). I find geocaching to be one of the most fun and instructive ways to do it. I use only a topozone map and a silva compass. Many times my boys accuracy is better than my etrex.
  16. So you're his sock puppet. I wondered if you would notice that. If you read his posts backwards at 78 speed they say "I AM DEAD WHITE MAN"

  18. I have to agree with Criminal and BP.............. OH NO!
  19. I just went and read this thread. Scary as it may be, I agree with J5's stated reasons. Caching for me is about the experience, not the numbers. Most of my hides are the kinds of caches I would like to find. Changing the caching experience of MY cache from what I intended is rude, plain and simple. If I want parking coords on MY cache, I will place them in MY cache description. If I want to suggest the finder parks at a certain place to seek MY cache, and someone else changes that, it's rude. It's no dfferent then someone changing the way my cache is hidden, or moving it to a "better" spot. I also read the thread. Bothe sides make some very good points. But reason would dictate that people behave in a civil fasion. Perhaps the finder should encrypt the co-ords. and perhaps the cache owner should not be so quick to delete the finders log, but rather simply ask them to change it. This game does'nt have to be confrontational.
  20. I think parking co-ordinates are fine. If i don't want to use them, I can ignore them, Unless I make an effort to use them they are useless. If however the cacher has a good reason for not wanting them posted, it is a simple matter to email the finder and ask him to remove them. Treat others as you would be treated and everyone stays happy.
  21. Can't reply too quickly without reading carefully. All we who are gullible get caught sooner or later.
  22. Instead of photographing it on a white towell, you should photograph it in the setting in which you intend hiding it. Possibly some of these rating recommendations might be higher.
  23. I like the wristwatch. Maybe I'm just a troublemaker
