  1. Sorry I did not explain myself. Your cache has been archived...that is all of the details I will give....oh and it would be unarchived. Was this suppose to be something funny? Sorry...I missed your dry humor. No humor there at all. That comment was completely serious. You will give no details so there is no way to fairly evaluate your cache. You posted a "note from the reviewer", but you will not post the description from your cache which that note is based on. FYI... I can see archived and unapproved caches, but there is no archived virtual cache near the airport. In fact, the only denied virtual you have is one in your home area about 75 miles south of Orlando. From this account, that is the only unapproved and archived cache I see. It just makes me wonder if there was ever a "cache" at all. Maybe this is why you are being so evasive. Because of the "problems" with virts I directly emailed the local approver so I didn't waste his time if virts wouldn't be approved because the are virts. Are you telling me I should go ahead an post a request for the cache? Sorry, but I don't know who you are. Are you an approver? You have never spelled this out. If so, and you want to hear a detailed description I would be glad to email you. Kayakanimal
  2. Thank you. I do appreciate all opions. They do not have to agree with me. It really doesn't matter that it is wrong. Just kidding. Thanks for your 2 cents worth.
  3. Sorry...that is going to be one of the "skills" for this cache. If I gave away what you needed to do here (if the cache ever got approved) it would give it away. This will not just be a "walk to these cords and see the whatever". Um, so it won't be geocaching. If you don't need your GPS, then it's not geocaching. As Keystone says, you just follow the big signs to the parking lot. The waypoint web sites would not accept these submissions either. Since you won't give any idea of what is going on to make it a cache it would appear to be just another sculpture submission that you cannot even use a GPS to find. Granted, I know there are offset caches and all, but walking up to coordinates and finding a virtual target or a tupperware box IS geocaching. Sorry I did not explain myself. You need a GPS to find...that is all of the details I will give....oh and it would be a virt. There are other types of caches...multi...mystery and so on. Not ALL all are walk up to the cords.

  4. Yes. But you don't tell us WHY it wasn't allowed and since we can't see the cache page we have to guess. Possible guesses may include but are not limited to: too close to federal property maintainance issues low WOW! factor could be used as a stage in a multi grandfathered caches are not a reason to allow new caches with particular issues 1. It is ON federal property. 2. NO maintenance issues in a Virt. 3. I think (any many other people) these sculptures are cool. 4. If was a multi you would have to leave the airport (trying to stay away from that so travelers don't have that problem). 5. The reason I was told that this cache would not be allowed was because (this is NOT an exact quote) GC was going away from caches that do not have a log book. I am familiar with the location (and I'm quite sure the approver is as well) and kayakanimal is correct in all his assertions. However, the statues in question, although cute, clearly lack the WOW factor required of a virtual, IMHO. I agree that it would make a nice diversion during a layover, but it just doesn't cut it as a virtual. Just my opinion. which one of the 9 in that area are you talking about? While I can't be sure which of the statues in the OIA parking garage you're talking about, I'm fairly familiar with the raccoons, bears, pigs, whatever, and just don't think those, or anything of that type rates a virtual. What I was trying to say was that, knowing the location to the degree I do, I don't think any of the points Bons brought up are an issue except the subjective one of the WOW factor. You asked and that's my opinion. Yes I did. And thanks. On another note... I remember reading some where that one of these things won some kind of award...I will try to find it if I can.
  5. Sorry...I am sure this has been asked but with so many posts in this topic... Is there a way yo list the Jeep TB's in FL?

  7. WOW...someone gets my point. This is suppose to be fun. If you don't think this cache would be fun to you then DON'T DO IT!. Simple.
  8. Just a drop in the bucket for our fun!?!?!?
  9. A few thoughts. 1. I generally don't like micros. 2. If you don't like them don't do them (just like virts...I LOVE them!) 3. If a cache is lame I say so...no matter what type it is.
  10. Had to hunt down my old email for it but finally found it. Here is the quote: Thanks for the email. Based on the guidance we have been given for approving virtuals, it doesn't seem like this one is unique enough for a virtual cache. I've seen most of the displays and they are nice to look at. But I've also seen similar displays in other areas, granted they weren't in airports. I appreciate you checking before you put a lot of time into it and I'm sorry that it won't fly. I respect his opinion. I disagree, but I respect it. I have read in the forums that if a cache was not allowed by an approver, and you still think it should be, to voice your opinion here. This approver has not approved other caches I tried to make. I mostly understood/agreed with his decisions. I am sorry but I don't agree with this one. 1. No physical caches on federal land. So why not a virt!?!? 2. I and many others think these are very unique "sculptures" 3. If you are on a layover here you will never see them. If the approvers in their infinite wisdom still say no to this cache, I will be glad to post the picture of this cache (security risk or not). I think most people will get a chuckle out of it. Kayakanimal
  11. But then it would need to be inside the security area. I mean, as long as it takes to get through airport security, I doubt people on a layover are going to go out and do a cache, and have to go back through security.........and then it's not easily accessibly for locals, or maintenance checks by the owner...... check the link I had above for the cache at the Atlanta airport. MANY travlers did it. I did! I already stated that locals could get in and out in under 30 minutes with no charge. Easy to get in and out. I am near there frequently. EASY to check. MUCH easier than many other caches that I have found and own.
  12. They are not in the security screening area. This cache would be outside in a parking garage. No security issues there. No pictures would be needed for the cache. Just for info. Um, how do you get a GPS coordinate inside a parking garage? Sorry...that is going to be one of the "skills" for this cache. If I gave away what you needed to do here (if the cache ever got approved) it would give it away. This will not just be a "walk to these cords and see the whatever".

  15. They are not in the security screening area. This cache would be outside in a parking garage. No security issues there. No pictures would be needed for the cache. Just for info. You sure about that? Most parking garages at airports have video surveillance which is watched by some guard inside. I can only imagine that if people were taking pictures of the sculptures you listed (if that was a requirement), it might look fishy to a guard and there could be some potential problems. Just my two cents! I said no pictures would be required for this cache.
  16. Thank you logscaler. That is EXACTLY my point. Have fun on a layover. Cool! Thanks, Kayakanimal

  18. Hotel is IN the airport. I asked about a micro...GM said sorry, no.
  19. Are you sure? I've heard of sculptures being moved from time to time. I've also heard of plaques being stolen/vandalized. Virtuals need maintenance just like real caches do. You need to make sure it's still there, that the area isn't closed off, etc. You are correct. Maintenance would be no problem.

  21. This cache is outside of security. And...in this parking area, if you don't stay more than 30 minutes there is no charge.
  22. That was not the reason it was not allowed. Besides...doe that mean ANY cache around an area that might gain attention would be bad? Example: Town halls, power plants...ANY tall building etc. I think not.
  23. Please excuse me if this topic has been beat to death… I know that virtual caches are kind of frowned upon as of late but… I wanted to put a cache at the Orlando International airport. A physical cache CAN’T be put there because it is federal land. So why not allow a virtual? I sent an email the local cache approver and he basically shot it down. On each level of the parking garage there are some neat (I guess the best word for them is a) sculptures. I thought that would make a great virtual. What does everybody think of this? Should the one be allowed? I love being able to do caches in airports when traveling…like this one. Thanks, Kayakanimal Also, I tried to make this a poll to vote on but when I clicked the “New Poll” button all it said was: Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information. The error returned was: You cannot start a poll
  24. Thats a good question How about a good answer?
