  1. Hey E! I'd be happy to help with your assignment I was first introduced to geocaching on an elementary school field trip, but didn't do it again until many years later at a scout camp I've now gotten into many different location based hobbies, as I like to call them, and all of them I enjoy because they help me see the world around me in a new way. It takes me to places I never would've noticed before, or helps me notice them in a new way. And, afterwards, I can look at that place and feel good because I know there's a secret there that only a few people know about I continue geocaching because it always gives me something to look for when I go to a new place, and I continue to get enjoyment from every cache I find and every connection I make with other cachers
  2. Okay, thank you. I know how the variable part normally works, I was just curious since the challenge one seemed designed to be checked by people visiting
  3. My family went on a lighthouse tour around our state last week. I'm now in the process of going back and logging waymarks that we visited, and at the first lighthouse under answers to variables, I saw Does anybody know what this means? I don't want to not select it and regret it, but I also don't want to select it and have something go wrong
  4. Wow, this is insane, especially as a Michigander myself. Too bad that I probably won't see any in my neck of the woods though, and they'll sell out within a few hours if they do
  5. Yeah, the help center thing is why I figured it wouldn’t allow you to give another cache a FP if one of your caches got one. And that other thread is what caused me to start this one. And I have to agree, the FP is for the specific geocache, not the person who hid it. It’s possible that I could love a specific cache by someone, but all the rest of their caches I find boring or just don’t like
  6. Thank you. That's what I had assumed, because it would make sense for the FP to be awarded to the cache, not the cacher
  7. This sounds like a dumb question in my head, but I'm not able to find an answer anywhere. I'm going to be placing my first geocache soon, so my head is racing with all sorts of different questions and ideas. One of these was about favorite points. If somebody awards my cache a favorite point, do I receive a favorite point to give to another cache? My gut is saying no, since that would cause an infinitely growing number of favorite points, even ignoring the fact that you are awarded one for every ten finds. But then again, I could be wrong in that assumption
  8. Oh man, a geocache, letterbox, OBCZ, and three waymarks all in one package, that's pretty crazy to think about
  9. That's what I was planning on doing as well
  10. Glad I could help introduce you to it! If Little Free Libraries interest you, you may also be interested in BookCrossing. It's similar to trackables, but for books
  11. So my mother is planning on making a LFL out of some wood we acquired from our recently torn down shed. I mentioned that she could make one that's also a geocache, and she seemed to like the idea. She asked me to find a design online, and I have a good idea in my head and wanted to bounce it off of some other cachers to make sure there wasn't something I was overlooking. My idea is to build it in the shape of a house, and place a compartment to the "attic" that would be locked with a combination lock. The house design seems to be the most common one, so it should be easy enough to find a tutorial online. The combination would be posted on the cache page, to make sure muggles couldn't get in but it's still easy for those who know what's there to open it. This seems like the best solution to me, but I'm open to any suggestions
  12. Maybe I wasn’t clear enough in my first post. The photos are two sides of the same tag. This is the first one I physically found, the same day as discovering one virtually. I’m wondering about the design of the tag itself. I understand the difference between a trackable and a hitchhiker, so I’m not concerned with the tiger. The tag I posted has the code on the front, where it normally says “trackable at Geocaching.com” and the backside has the design vertically instead of horizontally
  13. So I recently found my second travel bug with a dog tag, and I realized that the first one I found has a different design. After looking on the Geocaching store, I found out the first one was the odd one out. I was wondering if this was simply a copy tag made by the owner, or if tags with this layout of info is available for purchase somewhere cause I’ve grown rather fond of this one over the default
  14. Don't worry about sending the website, like I said I've already looked through it. Thanks for the other information
  15. That’s a very interesting idea for a church, for sure. Thanks for the advice
  16. The name is New Destiny Church. I was unable to find the specific denomination on their website. After thinking some more, I feel that if this category was to be made, the number one thing it would be looking for is a physically small church (around the size of a single story house) that caters to less than 100 (or so) members
  17. This is very important for new waymarkers, I've found out. I went to post a You Are Here map waymark, and upon getting home and haven taken ~5 photos of the map, I realized it also needs a photo of the area around the map. Now I know to always check the category before setting out to get pictures and coordinates
  18. Thank you for the feedback. I know I'm new, it's just an idea I had on a whim and was wondering if it had any need to be made. The church that made me think of it is one that is on the end of my block, which seems to be for a specific denomination of Christianity that I've never seen before, and only ever has 5 or less cars parked next to it. That's the idea I had for the category, a church that's very small (like around the size of a house) and has a small audience. But I agree with what vulture said in that other than the size aspect these would be very hard to verify and enforce
  19. That’s a fair point, and one I haven’t considered. Do you happen to know what the distinction for Local Neighborhood Grocer is? I think it could use the same one, since they’re a similar concept
  20. Yeah, I looked through all of those to see if this category has already been done. I was thinking it’s similar to country churches, but that category specifies they have to be outside city lines
  21. Not sure if this one's been suggested before, but I didn't see anything with the search. This category (which needs a better name) is essentially what it says in the title, a category similar to the Local Neighborhood Grocer category, but instead for churches. I come from a city that is locally famous for having a church and a bar on every corner, and most of these churches are very small and only bring in a few families each. I feel like these types of small, more personal churches would be good for a new category, but I want to hear what the rest of you guys think
