  1. There's an earthcache in Qatar that requires the use of vinegar (and a magnifying glass).
  2. One of our finds has had its name, description, location and size changed post adoption, the new CO only kept the GC code and hidden date the same.
  3. Seperate App, not available on a PC, seperate logging requirements, seperate placing guidelines we could go on but its easier to just keep pretending.
  4. No need to quit geocaching, just quit lab caching.
  5. There's a whole thread on this subject. https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/351058-maintained-it-didnt-maintain-it/
  6. Sorry to disappoint, but outside of the USA and possibly a few other countries it is 14/03/22 today - nothing special about that as far as I'm aware.
  7. Echoing the request to have the date format as per personal preferences - we use UK date format (DD/MM/YY) and are not, and have no intention of ever being American!
  8. We logged a NA as the cache is one we DNF'd previously - cue vitriol from the CO (duly ignored) who then archived the cache.
  9. Owner maintenance 21/09/2021 Someone needs to leave a throwdown or I will have to archive this cache.
  10. Just have to speak up on this one. Nearly gave up searching because of these 2 glitches intentional features, I'm not the most tech savvy person in the world but at least I could use the previous search to provide meaningful results. Mr me N u
  11. 5 years 7 months to compete GC1D17R, we started in February 2013 and finally got round to completing it in Sep 2018 - it is only about 11 miles long and the final location is less than 4 miles from home, we picked up the clues during a series of shorter circular walks over the years.
  12. If somebody is "creeped out" by the prospect of someone casing them, why would they contact the cache owner (probably a total stranger) at all?
  13. We started with one of these whilst in Saudi Arabia in 2008- the total number of waypoints (152?) - was exactly the same as the number of caches in country at the time! We also carried a ring binder with a print out of every cache listing, and only replaced it when the LCD screen died.
  14. Basic member caches in your small area should count themselves lucky - in the WHOLE of Kuwait (where Mrs me N u is currently working) there are a grand total of 5 caches available to basic members who are not military personnel. Edit - and only 16 non military available caches in total.
  15. GC2NQZP Sembawang hot spring in Sinagapore. An earthcache that epitomises geocaching for us - somewhere we would never have found as it is not listed on any tourist sites or in any guide books, it involved a train and bus journey followed by a short walk around the boundary fence of a military installation, said fence had been diverted to allow public access to the hot spring and as we were approaching the entrance an elderly local gentleman rode past us on a bicycle and pointed whilst shouting "hot spring, hot spring" a special memory for us!
  16. We refer to GZ as the point on the surface of the earth that our GPSR takes us to when navigating to the listed coordinates, and at least here in the UK, Groundspeak geocache listings DO NOT include elevation, so apart from attributes/cache description, we have no way of knowing the elevation - we have found a cache in a mine shaft where the listed coordinates were vertically above the cache but the entrance was some distance off and those coordinates listed as a waypoint (with no elevation information).
  17. A nice cold DING to Colleda - no apologies for being sneaky with the question, Pluto's first moon (Charon) was discovered in 1978 when Pluto was still regarded as the ninth planet in the solar system.
  18. Nope not Jupiter - that was the first planet (after earth) found to have moons orbiting it.
  19. Not Neptune -2 planets have had their first moon discovered since Neptunes.
  20. Thank you and sticking with the solar system and moons: Which was the last planet found to have at least one moon orbiting it? Edit to clarify question (hopefully!)
