  4. Hello, am back after an 8 year hiatus, have been updating my list of 18 wheeler and RV Friendly Caches. Cleaned out the archived caches and now have close to 700 caches and I am not even half way across the country. Will keep updating it daily. The list started on Geo trucker's and I have done as a way for long haul truck drivers and people with RV s a way to safely park n cache

  5. was out tonight looking to hide a new cache in town after work, was stopped while I was out walking the area. after showing id and going through the stop proceedures...

    Just out of curiosity, why did he stop you? It sounds like you had a good experience, but in America the police are not allowed to stop and demand ID unless they have a reasonable and articulable suspicion that you have, are, or are about to commit a crime. In other words, they cannot stop you and demand ID unless they believe you are involved in a crime (and can articulate that belief). It is a violation of your civil rights for them to stop you if that legal threshold hasn't been met.

     

    Is there more to this?

     

    it was because he first saw me in the area where the Drug dealing goes on, then I moved to another part of the area. I had my gps in hand and was and walking suspisiously around the areas. lol cant blame him for not checking things out. had nothing to hide anyway errr illegally that is. lol

  6. was out tonight looking to hide a new cache in town after work, was stopped while I was out walking the area. after showing id and going through the stop proceedures, he asked me what I was doing and proceeded to explain geocaching to him.

     

     

    there was a cache in the area previously that is now archived, so he knew a bit about "electronic treasure hunting". after going back to work I printed out a brochure, then met him back at the police station to explain things in more detail. I took several caches inside with me ( nano to large loc-n-loc). let him look things over and told him this is a family sport. He loved the CITO idea, and that we are not out there to Trash in but to trash out. when he asked about hiding caches, I told him we have rules that we go by, and that there are reviewers that double check things before the cache is published online. he liked the idea that once places a cache to bring people to an area of interest in towns, plus he added, cachers bring money to spend at local stores when there. :huh:

     

     

    the thing that made me feel good, they were having a meeting at the end of the week, and he was going to bring up geocaching, the containers and the sport to the rest of the dept. even the dispatch lady was very interested in geocaching when I left tonight.

     

     

    oh the reason he stopped to check things out. there is an area where I was first looking to hide a cache that is frequented by drug dealers and kids drinking beer. :D I noticed those signs in that area, and proceeded to find a new area to hide the cache. :)

     

     

    Yes, I do have permission to hide more caches in town. :)

  7. Anyone who wants a TB/Geocoin goal sheet printed(the one done from the geocoin's page) and stuck in a plastic ziplock along with the metal tag and coin, please respond to this post or PM me and I will get it done before next Sunday's start of the Premier Geocoin Race II.

     

    Only 8 days until the start of the race!!! B)

     

     

     

    Responding to the message, guess I need it for both coins.

    Hi TG,

     

    See these threads:

    Question for Collectors

    Logging collections into events

    My New Geocoin Case

    Geocoin Collection Storage

     

    Maybe one/some of theses should be pinned?

     

    Cheers,

    Craig

     

     

    thanks that really helped out. will be checking more into this, I would really like to share the coins I have (to be discovered that is ). but really wasnt sure which way to go with it.

     

     

    I agree some of those threads should be pinned to help others out.

  10. I keep 'em in an unpublished cache. Easy to drop in and easy to pull out if I want to set them free. No fuss, no muss if I want to make them available to be discovered. Don't know about the book TB thingy, how does that work?

     

     

    I saw some one that had thier coins in a note book,. they used the baseball card holders and had the coins placed in a thin layer of foam. am sure there is a thread about how to do that. they had it as a travel bug. you could log the tb as well as discover the coins. thought it was a novel idea. but wasnt sure how it would work to put the coins in it. my guess would be much like an event cache. but only doing it as a tb. I like the unpublished cache idea. was just wondering how many people have done it.

     

     

    thanks.

  11. have heard of doing this both ways. putting your coins into an unpublished cache to keep your list nice and clean. have also seen them in a book that is a travel bug. you log the bug and then discover the coins inside.

     

     

    what is the best way to do this. have heard pros and cons each way.

     

     

    thanks
