  1. Why is walking up to the cache to take pictures (and remove it) any different that cachers on the hunt?
  2. I think this sounds like a whole lot of fun! Every cache we find is a FTF for us - first time found by the Scrabblers (of course we don't log it as such) The logs on this cache are fun to read. if you don't like it, don't go, it's all spelled out so you know what you're going after before you leave the house. I like it!
  3. do you spend much time in this forum?
  4. If you're thinking about cachers rating a find, I think we already have that by reading logs and maintenance requests. If you were to rate your own hide you would always give it 100%.
  5. We have both of your travelers on our watch list - Hope we get to see them around here!
  6. Usually, my Garmin continually saying "Recalculating." Over and over and over again. Recalculating. Recalculating. Recalculating. Be careful how you respond... we kept telling our iQue to shut up when kept telling us it was recalculating and guess what! one day it stopped. never said another word. Now we just turn the voice down.
  7. That's great! I'll look for him if he comes down south!
  8. I'm rather insulted by geocachers being considered a sub-culture. Thinking I may have the wrong idea of what a sub-culture is I googled it and found a number of sites that all pretty much said this: Subculture: A subculture is a set of people with distinct sets of behavior and beliefs that differentiate them from a larger culture of which they are a part. The subculture may be distinctive because of the age of its members, or by their race, ethnicity, class and/or gender, and the qualities that determine a subculture as distinct may be aesthetic, religious, occupational, political, sexual or a combination of these factors. Different from the majority, "which passively accepted commercially provided styles and meanings, and a 'subculture' which actively sought a minority style. In other words, subcultures are groups of individuals who, through a variety of methods, present themselves in opposition to the mainstream trends of their culture. If the subculture is characterized by a systematic opposition to the dominant culture, then it may be described as a counterculture. Here are examples of subcultures: Punks Stoners Goths Jocks Preps Bisexuals Puritans Cults Clans
  9. Desperately wanted to one time when I stepped directly into a fire ant hill. In my quick exit my shoe went flying, sock got flung off, pulled up my pants leg while considering the consequences of removing my jeans to shake them out. The cache was toward the back of an open library on a busy street. Not an ideal place to strip. At least we were able to hide the cache away from the fire ants
  10. It's happened a few times for us and we enjoy the hunt with like minded folks, share a few stories on other caches in the area. It's always a fun surprise.
  11. I laughed when I read this : http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/vancouver...?urn=oly,219715 It's not about geocaching but the same topic here, telling others to play by your rules because that's the way it used to be.
  12. All caches are FTF for us "First Time Found by us" Only twice we've headed out ASAP when we saw caches placed but that was only because they were very close to home and we have a FTF hound here that is rather smug about it. The 2 of us rushing out of the house was rather fun, it felt like we were co-conspirators on a secret mission - it was late evening after all I'll admit to taking someone out before submitting one of our new caches, I needed to have coords double checked. However, she signed on the 2nd line and left the FTF line blank and didn't post until the FTF got it posted. It wouldn't have bothered me is she had posted FTF.
  13. The clip on youtube is great! thanks for sharing.
  14. "I like posting photos in the cache's gallery, but never know if many people look at them" I like looking at the the pictures and if I'm not able to find a cache, I'll study those photos!
  15. As a multi - you have a bit more flexability but fewer folks tend to go after multicaches. We now avoid most multicaches unless they are very new because we have come across some that are missing a part and can't be finished. We will go for ones that are actual caches to log that lead to a bonus find at the end. It's not about the numbers, it's just so frustrating to work your way along the puzzle/leads and then be left hanging with a missing part.
  16. in more than 2 years he has only found 8 and hid 1. maybe doesn't know the rules. but the reviewer should. Thinking about this more with the number of finds he has it looks like he placed this one with the idea of advertising
  17. http://ncdeerman.com/ in more than 2 years he has only found 8 and hid 1. maybe doesn't know the rules. but the reviewer should.
  18. My first thought was it could be a web site that most of us would never be interested in so who cares. But looking it up it is an advertisement for services and goods for outdoor types so IMO it should not have been approved.
