  1. I have a Nano glued into an Oak Apple or Gall hanging from an oak bush amongst the other galls... The cache is called Asterisk ... get it. It's not a give away. I have told lots of people and they still can't find it.
  2. Not just needles, which i have encountered three or four times, but, i also found half a broken bottle in a cache hole, several rusty tins etc. Last year at a countryside cache, an Adder slid away quickly over my foot. I slid away extremely quickly in the opposite direction. So make sure your Tetanus is up to date and always look before you leap.
  3. I agree with Hazel Parys or Mars is a great one, weird place. Menai Micro is great for the views and you will be passing it anyway. On the way up try "Highest in Conwy" and "Tiny Church" assuming you haven't already. You won't be dissapointed.
  4. And don't forget the one who did it by himself, and survived. Where's the Vallium?
  5. Thanks Bolas GSAK macro just what i was looking for. As previous logger mentioned the "Possibilities are Endless" using GSAK. You just have to know who to ask.
  6. See Link Myth Or Mystery One of my Ammo Boxes was in Band Of Brothers - Episode 5 The bloke i got it from was a special effects guy. Inside it was all sorts of B O B goodies. Does this count?
  7. Cheers Sensei Will give that a Whoorl. Time to get out the Photoshop and see what bitmaps i can come up with.
  8. Now i know this has probably been answered before (i hope) but i haven't visited the forum for a while so may have missed the answer. I can download all the POI's i want for my TOM TOM 300 caches but can i alter the bitmap and voices for different cache types. Regular, micro, multi, unknown etc. That way when i'm out and about but maybe haven't got the cache details with me i can pick up the regular caches along the way without finding out it is a multi and i haven't got the vital bit of info i need with me.
  9. I'm up for a get together Gary if you're arranging one. Looking forward to Lathama's to meet a few faces and logs.
  10. Check out this link - I don't know what it's saying but i get the idea. No seriously congrats.
  11. Run the cold water tap over your wrists. The blood vessels are closest to the skin there and the blood is apparently cooled quicker at that spot. Or so it feels like.
  12. I say "Let them stay". I have been contemplating archiving a couple of mine due to lack of interest for a few months, but as Jango states there was a burst of activity. New cachers in the area, people passing through, visiting relatives all made the difference. They also brought fresh caches to the area. One of mine is rediculously easy to find and i have often thought about putting it to bed but newcomers to the game always go for this one. So unless there is cache saturation, or you're thinking about replacing like for like i say let them be. I bet the caches will be logged soon and the emails will arrive in your inbox.
  13. Got permission for some of mine from Nuneaton and Bedworth council. They even helped me when a land owner blocked the footpath leading to my cache. Very nice people they are too.
  14. I've got a Nokia N70. I use the free Mobipocket reader and download the Mobipocket files at the same time as the .gpx files. Also got the Streetmap add on from O2, the geocaching applet for updating whilst out and about, and insta notify set up for new caches in the area. That covers about all i need and works well for me.
  15. Sounds like the Midlands would be a good place for a Mega Event. As SP states, M1,M42,M6 not forgetting the M69, Coventry,Birmingham and East Midlands Airports for our continental cousins to come in by. Easy access from North South East and West. Lots of parks, caches, conference centres (if you want to go that way). As for numbers it depends on how well the event is publicised in the geocaching community and the timing is crucial. What is a bank holiday here probably isn't abroad. Sounds good to me though.
  16. How about Big Log - Robert Plant (celebrate 1000 caches) Dirt in a hole - Robert Plant Walking towards Paradise - Robert Plant (FTF) Another one bites the dust - Queen Action this day - Queen Play the Game - Queen River Deep Mountain High - ? (can't remember)
  17. Alternatively try doing something like this - Out On A Limb Great fun, if you don't mind looking a little stupid.
  18. Coin and bonus coin arrived safely this morning. Many thanks.
  19. Within 25 miles of Nuneaton Warwickshire. 298 to date
  20. I thought i had the same problems with my TOM TOM when i updated the software but i didn't. The first 40 or so nearest caches are shown in the POI menu but the other caches were still in the TOM TOM. If i scrolled the map or went on a journey the nearest 40 showed up wherever i was in the country. This only started happening since the software update. Don't know if this is the problem you have but hope it helps.
  21. Put me down for Warwickshire. I can't see that's gone yet.
  22. November 8th 1957 Fiery, Scorpion at Large.
