  1. That's OK PC Painter. TB are an exciting part of geocaching. I was recently thrilled when my TB Ozzy goes home http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=908 was taken to an event cache Christmas Drinkies in England. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...89-b365ea208dce It was the perfect place for him!! There are quite a few TBs in my recently unarchived cache http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...59-386ec1a7d932 that need help on their way too.
  2. So have you done the cache Local Treasure yet? 'shrug'
  3. You can carve your own stamp with supplies easily obtainable from Michael's ttfn jane
  4. I have a cache in France, Tocqueville. I don't know how to link it!! It is handy for Cherbourg and there is a Hypermarket, Auchen, close by for the dutyfrees!! It is close to a family owned cottage. It is a truly international cache as I live in the US. The first visitors were Dutch! ttfn Jane
  5. That's my letterbox!! I was into letterboxing before geocaching!! Many boxers like to carry markers to use on stamps, that way you can colour the different elements different colours, grass green, sky blue etc!! And your personal stamp may work better with your own colour scheme rather than whatevers in the box!! There are so many caches in PQ preserve that I have not converted it to a hybred!! ttfn Jane pps and you could always use the B F Gates method of stamping if desparate!!
  6. Can you have an event that lasts a month?
  7. I am very sorry to hear this news. I was only thinking about him this w/e when I heard Terry Wogan mention CIN and wondered if there would be a Fox Hunt again this year. I enjoyed watching his progress around England from here in San Diego. A very sad day, he will be missed.
  8. Thanks for the link! I letterbox in California and only knew of the letterboxing.org site!! Coming to UK in August so will look up a few letterboxes while ove!! (as well as caches .)
  9. I have a cache in Tocqueville. It is near our family owned cottage. We are going for a visit in August. It's only had a few visitors but we are happy for them. We thought we might get a few more as people would be going for the d-day celebrations. The nearest caches are 23 miles south. We have also found the cache that is at Mont St Michel. We hope to do quite a bit of cacheing in the south of England when we are over. It's hard to know which ones to choose I have so many on my watch list!! So little time, so many pubs!! ttfn Jane
  10. I've been watching the Fox's progress round the UK from San Diego. Very exciting. I also saw a letter explaining the Fox Hunt to the BBC.co.uk. Well done.
  11. This is so sad, I'm at a loss for words. Anything we can do you know how to contact us. I'm at work in Scripps Business Park and the sky is an eerie orange and the air is foul. It's hard to work knowing the devastaion and heartbreak just across the way from me.
  12. We would like to join a group camp. Do not mind where it is, but do prefer that the site has at least a restroom!! Will bring something for a cashe! We do not have 4WD so would also like to beg a ride for tha cache hunts. Thanks Jane Silver Horde aka Jane8276
  13. Count us in for a geocaching event in the desert! We don't have 4wd so would love to share a ride. We did manage to take the van to Fonts Point once and our v. old Tempo to Split Mountain where we got stuck in the sand before we knew better. We even have a cache out at the Salton Sea but you don't need 4wd for that one!! By the way did anyone get Poison Oak at the recent Bash?
  14. The most we have found in one day is 9 I think. We were just visiting an area for the day so made the most of our visit. I have heard of people doing far more. But for us it is the journey as well as the destination and like to enjoy each cache we do. By the way why have you pulled all your caches in the Epping Forest? I used to go there with my parents as a kid! When I lived in Chelmsford Essex. I hope to do a few Essex caches when I next come over!!
  15. Wasn't Devils Jumps one of the caches that got picked on by the Mod Ants? Maybe it's still there!
  16. Hi Kite I'm another one who sits and waits either at the top or bottom of any really really steep bits while dh manfully goes ahead! Not fair really as I am the keen cacher while dh humours me!! I sat by that little cross wondering the fate of the young man! My closest not found cache is at the top of Black Mountain and by golly, heart and legs willing, one day I'll get up there!! But probalbly no in this lifetime!! ttfn Jane of the Silver Horde aka Jane8276
  17. My favourite caache was http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=19696 Alton Barnes. Mostly for sentimental reasons Found it while on holiday on a narrow boat on the K& A canal. It was my birthday treat. Great views of the English countryside. I have a watch list of 100 must do caches in England. Can't wait for my nex visit!!
  18. Hope you enjoy your trip to San Diego. I have family in New Zealand and visited NZ a few years ago. Great country! I would recommend caches in the Rancho Penasquitos zip 92129. Lots of good ones in the preserve there. There is an active thread called the San Diego Thread I don't know how to 'markwell'!! try posting your request there too. Torrey pines extension cache is a good coastal cache. Several in and around La jolla and del mar!! ttfn Jane
  19. I read on the BBC today that there is a nude hiker on the Penine Way (long distance path) that is bothering (i mean he's not bothered but they are!)other hikers on the trail. The weather in England is not normally that good but I gather they are having a heat wave at the moment!!
  20. wouldn't it be fun to publish your campsite's cooridinates somewhere(either a voicemailbox or SMS text messages) and then turn your car into a cache? They did something like this in England I think they called it a fox hunt. It was a great success with cachers driving around the English countryside centered in Winchester.
  21. I've only been scrapbooking for 6 months. I belong to a couple of SB Boards and do a bit of swapping too. I've only scrapped one of my geocaching trips so far. 'Women are like teabags. We don't know our true strength until we are in hot water!' Eleanor Roosevelt
  22. We're going to see Mamma Mia in August! Did your wife enjoy the show? It was our 20 Wedding Anniversary in May and we celebrated by going caching around Morro Bay. It's my birthday this month and hopefully I will be going caching to celebrate that too!! I got the GPSr for my birthday 2 years ago and hopefully will have found 200 by or on my birthday!!

  23. Well done! Enjoy reading your logs, reminds me of home!! ttfn Jane 'Women are like teabags. We don't know our true strength until we are in hot water!' Eleanor Roosevelt
  24. We have a cache in France but no one has found it yet. How are you getting over? By ferry to Cherbourg would get you close to our cache at Tocqueville. We always plan our holidays around caching now. Even when we came over for a canal trip we found caches near the canal. We try to plan long road trips with a break near a cache too.
