  1. I think there should be an icon for ALR. That said, I think the objections to ALRs are rooted in the numbers ho problem. I mean you can find the cache, trade at the cache, see all the sights, and even sign the physical log. The only thing the owner might be able to do is prevent you from getting a smiley. Besides, I think some of the caches are pretty cool. Me and at least half the respondents to this thread. I daresay its more creative than a Wally world lampost cache. At this point I'd like to try to create a new GC acronym: IJAG (It's Just A Game!!!)
  2. All I can say is QuestMaster hides good caches. I don't care about his politics, lists or grammar.
  3. Link the cache here in the forums. This is the proper place to air your opinions. OTOH, if the cache area has become a truly dangerous area, log a SBA. Whether the cache owner deletes or not, the reviewers will see it. Don't use the SBA option frivolously (like if you just don't like the cache).
  4. I remember #100, #1000, and I'm close to 2000 which I will also remember. More than these, though, I remember great locations and container/presentations. One I'll never forget was your " View Carre' " I didn't get to meet you, but your apprentice did a great job. Thanks again, Bam.
  5. Hey, Fishin' fools! Every time I see one of your posts I remember that hunt! I'm pretty well addicted now. As busy as I get, I don't have serious numbers racked up, but we still cache as often as possible. It's good to hear from you.
  6. I was on the throne, where I do my best thinking, and came up with this common-sense list. Be a good finder--Trade up or even, perform minor cache maintenance Be nice--Leave nice logs on good caches, leave out agendas, criticize in private, don't freak out when criticized Place caches you'd like to find--a little thought, time and money goes a long way Support GC.com if you can afford it--This is for the mainliners. Jeremy supplies the smack, after all... 'Evangelize' geocaching--Tell like-minded folks about our hobby, and teach them right When you read this list, bear 2 3 things in mind: This applies to the more than casual users I applied the K.I.S.S. principle I wanted to try out the 'list' feature Let me know what you think
  7. I have never checked the written logs or deleted any on-line logs. However, if I suspected a bogus find, I would check it out and delete if necessary. I guess it's just the principle. The peak logs used by mtn climbers mean something to the climbers. Maybe I'm being a bit melodramatic, but a fake log (even on-line) devalues the experience, IMO.
  8. Easy now, folks! Not everyone is as consumed with Geocaching as most of us forum-goers are. $30 will only fit in your budget if it is one of your primary hobbies-else it is a waste. If his family's favorite hobby is boating and he only occasionally GCs, his boat-gas statement is perfectly reasonable. Now, demanding features for free that one is too cheap to fork over the $ is another story. I understand, though. As a enlisted military family, we have become a cheapskate out of necessity. You have to pick and choose where your money is spent. I have become a connoisseur of freeware/open source software. tink, tink **Note to self - read preceding post so as no to look like an idiot when writing a similar post...
  9. It's interesting that you say this, since RJB43NH brought it up earlier. At the time you posted this there were 99 posts in this thread, made by 43 posters. Of those 99 posts I gleaned the following: 4 posters defended CCC. 14 posters strongly felt that what she did was wrong. 25 posters were largely neutral on whether she was right or wrong. You might come up with a slightly different count, depending on your definition of neutral. Still, this hardly looks like a posse riding in to smother the opposition. Actually, I was just trying to sound cool. A better way to say it would be 'mention CCCA and expect a firestorm (from both sides)'
  10. A few points could be made after reading thru this whole thread, IMO: - Don't delete NM logs, it just ticks people off and there is no good reason to do it - Pick on CCC and her posse gots her back, Yo! - Honestly, who really cares that the logs were deleted. At best it's just a bit rude. And...
  11. Always carry a caliber large enough to kill the bear AFTER passing through the bunny-hugger trying to save it! That said, I own a PT-92AF with Pachmeyer grips, but never have taken it caching, as I've never felt the need.
  12. I bought mine at this site at a buck apiece http://www.imsplus.com/ims24.html
  13. Drink lots of beer. This will in no way help with the burrs, but you won't care.
  14. I kind of like it when Jeremy pops in and pops off. It makes me feel like I'm in at the ground level of Microsoft. Please don't ban me for comparing you to Bill Gates, J-money! (and please don't shut off my computer for talking ill of Microsoft, Billy G!)
  15. OK, this response may be a bit off topic, but SOMEONE really needs to tell that kid that his hobby choices may in fact lead to him dying a virgin, young ham operator of the year or no. Alright, geocaching isn't the most studly hobby either, but I was married with children before I started this hobby.
  16. If caching with your kids, always bring TP. Oh, and Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now. Also, there's no 'I' in team, but there is in 'Bite me'
  17. Let me add a few more questions to the rant... Would Geocaching actually get better with more rules? What rules would we use to keep people from cheating themselves? Whose standards would we apply to the GC group as a whole? At what point would we stop adding rules? I cache in a way that appears to be generally acceptable, but I really don't give a flip about the cheating. I find it a bit silly, but mostly harmless (with a few exceptions noted ad nauseum in the forums).
  18. My vote goes for View Carre' in New Orleans. In my limited experience, it's up there. Oh, and Brian, you da man!
  19. Oh yeah, about the center thing: - The geographical center of the lower 48 states lies outside of Lebanon, Kansas, in the middle of a hog farm. - The geographical center of all 50 states is located 17 miles west of Castle Rock, South Dakota. - The geodetic center of the U.S. is found approximately 42 miles south of Lebanon, Kansas. (Note: A geodetic survey makes corrections to account for the curvature of the Earth.)
  20. Cool idea! I'd volunteer for IL if I weren't a military gypsy. For a name, how about 'Cache Across America' or 'Cache Quest USA' I hope these will all be quality caches. 50 lampposts would be anti-climactic. However, wheelchair accessible might not be a bad plan. One idea might be a requirement to place it near a monument or historical area that represents the state. IE the Alamo for TX, a ski resort for CO etc.
  21. How 'bout a vanity plate that is a TB number?
  22. Great program, thanks so much. I got the stats on my profile now. The only problem I had is that Groundspeak only allows a certain # of characters per block and the html exported was longer than that. I had to split my stats between 2 blocks. It's not too hard to do, thanks to the options built into your proggie. Thanks again.
  23. I'd buy a patch myself. I was with the 23d fighter group duing the initial occupation of Tallil AB near An Nasiriya (moved forward from Al Jaber Kuwait)--what a crap hole. My most cherised (not) memories included being chased by wild dogs when jogging and digging latrines in 130 degree heat. Besides Korea, I understand you can get them (coins)made cheap in Turkey as well.
  24. Thats not one of the ducks being harrassed by the pro choice activists, is it...
