  1. Camel: Ditto what Green Achers said. For what it's worth, I called a Stockton Police officer friend of mine who tells me that the way the Modesto PD handled the container is standard procedure, except that they should have been able to xray it. But, as someone else mentioned, if it had batteries and a spiral notebook it could still look suspicious. Bottom line is that it's better to blast it open than to take a chance and have someone get hurt. Most likely they used a water cannon to open it. Camel, If you haven't already talked to MPD, I would suggest that you call your lawyer, (you do know a lawyer don't you) and have him/her make some inquiries for you with the MPD. I can't imagine you being in any serious trouble. The key here would be your intent in placing the container. If you were trying to make people think it was a bomb, that would be serious, but you weren't, and that should become fairly obvious when they look into this further. In any event, we feel for you and hope this works out OK. T&R
  2. Welcome Amytincan. I found the best deal at GPSdiscount.com. They have fast shipping and they give you a tshirt with the purchase of a gps. Happy hunting.
  3. Thank you team GUI for that report of your encounter with my over-eager friend. You made an already funny story even better by telling it from your vantage point! I intend to share your story with my friend and our whole church small group tomorrow for additional laughs! BTW, she is a very kind-hearted person, (not a nutcase) and she really did think you were two blind women who had lost their way.
  4. Had dinner tonight with some friends when one of them told a story of driving under I-5 on March lane about a month ago and seeing two women up along the side of the road in the bushes using canes. Thinking they were two blind women who didn't know where they were, she made a u-turn, parked at the Union 76, and proceeded to "save" the two blind women. Turns out, of course, that the two "blind" women were actually geocachers, using their canes to search the plants for the cache. I'm assuming they were looking for CVC tag? Would the "blind" women care to identify themselves?
  5. You can find a forum thread about WAP here: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=79671
  6. It's a good thing it doesn't involve spelling! LOL
  7. How many times are you going to let this oppertunity slide out of your hands Ryan. My gosh! When you're handed the ball... RUN! Hush Bill! Don't encourage him!
  8. Maybe not for you farmers, but for us normal folks that puzzle is a doosy!
  9. Congratulations to Outageous Fortunes on being FTF on the Indiana Jones multi! You go girl!
  10. I started with an etrex Venture, which you can pick up new for just over $100 dollars. I recently moved up to an etrex vista, with lots more memory, a basemap, and the ability to download additional maps to it. Cost was $225 at gpsdiscount.com. My son now uses the Venture. An inexpensive gps will get you just as close to the cache as an expensive one, just without the additional bells and whistles. Welcome Duckfarmer!
  11. Poor Hemlock must be swamped with new caches to approve the way you and others have been placing caches. Give the guy a break!
  12. Uh, Bill. Are you still hanging around Stockton waiting the the new coords to be posted for tag? Maybe that was your bed over by 4th of July finale! I think maybe$ATM$ needs to adjust your meds.
  13. Took the famly to Sonora yesterday to the the Sierra Repertory Theatre production of "Grease" They did a terrific job on this musical and I would recommend it to any of you geocachers who enjoy live theater. The show runs until September 5th. Their website is Sierrarep.org and tickets can be ordered over the phone at 209 532-3120. If "Grease" is not your style, they are also doing "Annie Get Your Gun" at the Fallon House theater in Columbia. We've seen that one also and it is likewise well done. And yes, there are a number of geocaches in the area so you can look for them after the show.
  14. It's he-re!! How many Markers does one town need?? Found it at 8:10 this morning. Great job Wildlifeguy! I have been to the Double Springs site before, but had never seen this cemetery. I would never have found the entrance w/o the coordinates. BTW, does the cemetery have a name? I found this to be a wonderfully peaceful spot. Not a bad place for a final rest. After finding the cache I spent over 30 minutes wandering around reading headstones in the company of a friendly rabbit. On the way home I stopped at the "Valley Springs" cache. Saw that Outrageous Fortunes was there a few days ago but has not yet logged their find. Thanks for the fun morning Wildlifeguy!
  15. We're planting a cache up on swiss ranch road tomorrow. It'll be full of good stuff. Watch for it Wildlifeguy. Found "The secret forest" by Ron Streeter in Lodi, and "Tools of the Trade" in Modesto today. Both caches worth finding. "Secret Forest" because it's a neat area that I (and I'll bet most people) didn't know existed. "Tools" because of all the great goodies.
  16. Bill: Since the family won't go with you on the return trip, let me know if you'd like some company. I've been looking at this listing since it was posted and wishing I still had my boat. With a little advance notice I can sneak away from work a little early sometime. Just don't tell my wife. Ted
  17. I saw the posting for "Latte cache II". Thanks stashseeker, we look forward to seeing everyone.
  18. Bill: Go ahead and give us the story. It's not like we have too much to read on this forum.
  19. I thought the etrex legend contained 1000 waypoints. Not so?
  20. That cache is OPERATION HIGH DESERT ADVENTURE. There was a sequel as well: OPERATION HIGH DESERT ADVENTURE 2. Both had a $1000 FTF prize, both claimed by Kevin. Check out his logs and photos. Very cool stuff. --Marky Now THATS Geocaching! Forget the Fast Food I, II, III, IV etc. I prefer a hike through the backcountry anyday. (Though not QUITE that strenuous please ) Thanks Marky for posting that.
  21. Lets see, Long walks resulting in sore knees looking for Ron Streeter caches, sliding 200 feet down into a gulley, only to realize I had to climb out the other side, when I could have just stayed on the gently sloped trail (Bayview), poison oak (Rough Road and Pioneer Park), black widow spiders (Magnetic tour of Stockton). No, nothing unusual.
  22. Gee guys, that sounds like fun, but as for me and my family we will be heading over to Mallard's restaurant after church to search for Easter Eggs in the buffet line. ( I like mine scrambled) Ted
  23. They fixed it! Just checked in on the "My Caches" page and the words no longer run together. Thank you to TPTB. Sorry I sounded so grumpy earlier.
  24. The new "My Caches" page works great in IE, but it all runs together in Netscape. For those of us who hate microsoft it would be nice if TPTB would tweak it to work well with Netscape. Until then I'll use the old version.
