  1. Yes...I have more. This selection is from CTG Music. Samppa Saarinen - Winlderness Love It's a little weird, but I like it. As always, 100% legal and free. I also think that a lot of the music by Gaia Consort fits as well. It's very folkish and may not be for everyone, but I like it.
  2. I find that I can get some pretty good stuff from the dollar section at Target.
  3. Here's a recent addition to my geocaching playlist: Suikoden - Cliff the Great Crusader, by Trenthian.
  4. T-shirt and jeans comprise about 98% of my wardrobe (sp?). I also have my blue jacket I wear on cooler or wetter days. That's pretty much all I need.
  5. I know what that's like. From time to time I go through a celtic phase. Chieftains, Loreena McKennitt, Flogging Molly, that's all I'll listen to for weeks. I'm kinda going into that again now.
  6. Utah Admin is great, most caches around here are approved within a day.
  7. Here's some music that I have in my geocaching playlist: Jethro and Vash at the Fair Ascension to Cosmo Canyon Shepherd Won't Alone Far Away Memories *This is a good one for on the way home* Braving Tal Tal Heights Pirates of Dragon Roost Isle A Storm in the Desert Prayer Metal Gear May Cry (Remastered) *This is one of my all time favorites* Bonds of Sea and Fire Chu Chu's Flight (Orchestral) Legend of the Snake Journey of Solitude Legends of the Past *An interesting celtic/metal mix* The Tsunami Aria (Code 79 Remix) *This one's a bit of a stretch, but I think the music has a similar "ecipness" that the other songs have* They're all free to download at the links and all are 100% legal, so you don't have to worry about the RIAA coming to get you. Enjoy!
  8. Here's mine. Not too shabby if I doo say so myself.[/ego]
  9. Originally I had wanted to make another attempt at making tamales for Cinco de Mayo, but then I got to thinking. Ya see, because it was Cinco de Mayo the logical thing to do would be to make those tamales, but that's just what they'd be expecting. So I decided to throw a curve ball and I made burgers. See, that way they wouldn't know what to expect next time.
  10. Personally I'm a fan of the hiking staff, myself. Mine is about five feet tall and made from a hardwoon broom handle I got from Home Depot. I like that it is tall because that gives me more options at to where I can hold it, giving me greater leverage or a longer stick (when crossing rivers) when needed. I also like the long staff because it has greater defence potential, if needed (I've actually been looking for a way to affix a sort of bayonet to mine ) As for materials, I prefer wood because I feel it is more real than, say, aluminium. Wood has a warmth to it, a soul. Fiberglass, steel, aluminium, titanium are all so cold and soulless.
  11. You're not far off. I posted this same question in the UTAG forums a while ago. I found that most are in their 40's. Though I myself am 22. I'm pretty sure I've seen the same question posted here before too, I'm pretty sure it came out the same.
  12. I'm sorry to say that I haven't been as active as I would like to be. With school and everything it can be hard to want to go driving around looking for a cache after class. I also don't want to go too fast right now because I'm getting closer to 100 caches and I want my 100th find to be on Mt. Ogden Peak, and that won't be thawed out for a little while still. I also have this fear of running out of caches that are within a reasonable distance from my house. I don't want to have to drive an hour to get to the nearest cache. So generally I do take my time with caches.
  13. Actually, to log a TB you need to TB number, which can only be found on the TB itself, so you do need to actually get the TB. Technically, yes. If you have a TB and it is logged that you have it, then you can log that you put a TB into a cache without actually doing it. This, however, is very much frowned upon and if caught one may face consequences. Well, there are a few "virtual TBs" out there in which you needn't have the TB because there is no TB to be had in the first place. You could email the person who "grabbed" the TB and explain that you physically have the TB. It may have just been a mistake; they may have put it in the cache accidentally or "taken it out" accidentally.
  14. My dad is on the administrative staff (for lack of a better term) for an off-road racing organization, Bonneville Off-Road Racing Enerprises. Last week he was joking that they should get soe gps units and secretly place then in a number of cars and trucks they though might try to cut across the race course.
  15. My next caching experience will involve me taking a particulaly cute/amazing girl on a hike up a near by canyon and to a cache with a great view. It promises to be a very good day.
  16. Here in Utah? Nine times out of ten you get approved within a day, if even. Thanks UtahAdmin!
  17. I may be a little paranoid here, but I'd think twice about giving actual cache locations to Jr. High kids. That's an age group with a rather distructive tendency and I wouldn't be suprised if the caches they found ended up destroyed or missing soon after the trip. I may be in college, but I remember my Jr. High days all too well (to put it short, three years of hell) and I can well remember that quite a few kids then had some issues in terms of respecting the property of others. I don't know, maybe that was just my Jr. High. If you feel you can really trust them, then go for it.
  18. Do you have a second firewall program running? Like Norton or McAfee? If so you may need to disable it as well.
  19. Even though some of us utterly detest the word. I never us it myself, I don't need people thinking I'm some sort of potterhead.
  20. I guess I'm a little late, but no matter: Fear teh Bunny!
  21. Personally I don't see what the big deal is with knifes and lighters in caches. If the lighter is empty (and not a Bic but rather a good lighter like a Zippo) and the knife is folded or has a sheath on it and they are not in caches that a child could find, say on a 3.5 or 4 star terrain cache, then I have no problems with them. Heck, I'd like to find more stuff like that.
  22. Personaly I'm a hiking staff guy. I've always prefered wood over aluminium as well. Wood, I feel, has a soul and "warmth" to it; it's more real. Whereas aluminium is cold, hollow, and souless.
  23. I'll take a couple of minutes. Personally I don't really want the coordinates to be absolutely perfect. I think the gps is just supposed to get you into a certain radius where you must then rely upon your instincts [sp?] to find the cache. More fun that way.
  24. Not paid. Full time student, can't afford it at this time. Though I do intend to become premium at some time.
