  1. Count me in. I will place one in Allen County. If you are running short on any of the counties in Northeast Indiana, I can help out with those as well.
  2. So is there a way to download a .gpx file with all the logs? I would like to put some accurate statistics on my profile page but I am being limited with only 20 logs, yet some of my caches have over 200 finds on them. Is there a way to download all the logs to update my statistics from GSAK?
  3. I work for a living, just not this Friday! And me and paint do NOT get along. If you REALLY want, I could "paint" your house, but it will definitely not be in the manner that you are thinking!
  4. Hey all. I am looking for someone to Geocaching with on Friday, May 28 in Auburn, Indiana. I have the day off work and want to try to clear the caches up there. I am planning on getting between 30 and 35 caches on that day. If anyone is interested, please drop me a line and we can meet up in the morning and plan out the day.
  5. Raine, YOU ROCK!!! That solved it! Could I make an enhancement suggestion to get that wording associated with this type of error? Thanks for the help!
  6. Is anyone having difficulties with the Caches Along a Route tool? I haven't been able to create a PQ from a route in over a week now. When I try to submit one, I get taken to an error page that reads: An Error Has Occurred Your request has resulted in an error. You may choose to retry your previous request. Or you may tell us what you were doing when this error occurred. I have tried uploading a route saved from Google Earth, creating the route on GC.com, changing my options for the PQ, changing the names, dates and anything else, but I keep getting this error. Anyone got any ideas? I am using Windows XP. I have also tried this using Firefox v3.0.11 and IE v6. Thanks.
  7. Hello. I am Lord Elwood from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I will be attending a convention in Austin from Oct. 25 through Oct. 30. I usually like to get in some Geocaching while I travel for business, but on this trip, I will not have a car. This means I am restricted to areas close to my hotel (The Austin Hilton on 4th street). The closest cache to this hotel is about 8 blocks away. So I would like to ask for help as I have NEVER been to Texas before, let alone gone Geocaching there. I was wondering if there was an Austin local Geocacher who would be willing to show me the sites, and some good Geocaches, are Austin. I will have free time on Saturday, Oct. 25 from about 4pm until we get tired and on Wednesday, Oct. 29 from about 4pm until whenever we get tired. Yes, at this point and I pretty much begging because I love geocaching, want to get some Texas Geocaches, and see some sites around Austin that I won't get to see because of the lack of a vehicle. If anyone is interested in playing chauffeur to an out of town geocacher, or would like for me to join them on a cache run, then please feel free to contact me. I really appreciate anyone's help with this. And if you ever make it up to Fort Wayne, IN, I will do whatever I can to return the favor. Lord Elwood
  8. May 17, 2008 2008 Indiana Spring Picnic (GC17WWE) Hosted by NEI-GEO Ouabache State Park in Bluffton, IN
  9. The good news is that my weekend is clear right now!!! Of course, with my schedule, that could change in an hour or so!
  10. There is a chili dump event on Jan. 19 at Dunes State Park in Chesterton, IN.
  11. Yeah, there was a little miscommunication with these events. But everything is worked out now. Mr. Incredible! Hits 100! (GC17FAD) is in Fort Wayne, IN and will take place at 11:30am. NEI-GEO Meet and Eat - Ali Kat's 2nd B-Day Bash (GC17RRN) is in Coldwater, MI and will take place at 6:00pm. So you can go to an event for lunch and another for dinner!
  12. Welcome John! Glad you like the addiction! While you're looking for caches, be sure to keep an eye open for event caches that pop up everywhere! They are the best places to meet other cachers and to get some tricks of the trade!
  13. I used Excel to plot it for me. It is a manual process, but once you set it up, it's easy to update. If you're interested, send me your email and I'll send you the file.
  14. Oldlog Welcome to the Hoosier state and welcome to the addiction that is Geocaching! I highly encourage you to look up an event caches nearby. This will give you a chance to meet a lot of local cachers and get some one on one tips of the trade. Good luck and if you have any questions or run into any problems, please don't hesitate to ask.
  15. You may not be able to place virtuals, but you can place Earthcaches, which are a form of virtual and they have an educational requirement! The land managers should be more than happy to help out with Earthcaches.
  16. There are some caches like that in the NEI-GEO area. They are placed with the same respect as caches in cemeteries. They are not on the crosses, rather they are nearby. I do agree with the whole dangerous situation comment, but how is it any different than pulling off the side of the road with your blinkers on for other caches, like old, small, country cemeteries? Bottom line is that these caches were placed with respect. And they draw attention to how many casualties occur on our roads every year. If we all took a moment to actually look at these crosses and see how many of them there are out there, then maybe that will help to slow everyone down and drive with a little more care.
  17. fishercz20 Go to the Wisconsin DNR's Website for a complete list of their hunting seasons.
  18. She is, unless she's drinking. Alcohol to Amber is like spinach to Popeye!!!
  19. I tell you, these weddings just keep ruining my Geocaching plans!!! I can't go to the Moonshine Meet & Greet because one friend is getting married. And I can't go to the Ohio Men's Escape Weekend because another friend is getting married (and I'm in that wedding)! Seriously, my friends need to show some respect for Geocaching!
  20. Man, I'd love to attend, but a good friend of mine is getting married that day and with the trip being about 5 hours away, I don't think it'll work.
  21. According to the government, you saw a weather balloon. Nothing more to see, move along.
  22. I agree with SixDogTeam. NEI-GEO has one rule: We are an organization. We have no offices, no steering committee, no minimum requirements, no geographical requirements, etc. Basically, if you want to be a member of NEI-GEO, congrats, you're a member. We meet once a month and we hope to see you there!
