  1. No caching should not be banned in the park. I just have two comments. First - it is a misconception that caches cannot be hid and found without creating a social trail. This is simply untrue. I myself have found a cleverly hid cache within a national park. Hidden right under my nose, but difficult to find. No social trail being created. Second - cachers are no less friendly to the parks than many other groups of users. The only other option is to simply ban people period. Cachers are no harder on the land than are, sightseers, climbers, photographers, canoeists, kayakers, hikers, backpackers, skiers, snowshoers, etc. The only thing that I see as a valid point is that hiders could take extra precautions when hiding to ensure that hunters do not have to create a trail to find it in areas that are obviously more sensitive.
  2. If you e-mail me, I can send you a file in a format (eps) that your printer will be able to read dirctly. I won't be able to reply till monday however. DH
  3. reasons. 1: I found it's a good way to get my kids a little more active. If they think they are playing with technology rather than "hiking" they are more inclined to get outdoors. 2: It's something the whole family can do together. Not a lot of specific athletic requirements (unless heading for a 4+ terain) etc. Besides buying a GPSr there is not a lot of additional gear required if you already have shoes and a jacket. (this of course is discussable, but I had to add nothing else to my gear collection) 3: Seeing new locations while being a tourist. Geocaching is a great way to be a tourist. You rely on locals to get you to the REAL cool places, not the ones that the travel information booth knows about. This to me is a far more interesting way to visit new areas. 4: Practice for navigational skills. Geocaching can teach folks many valuable navigational skills which can be applied to other activities such as hiking,fishing,hunting,search & rescue....... etc. 5: It's fun.
  4. M-T-P I like your new one. After shrinking it to 75 pixels, I have a couple of comments. 1: If you could enlarge the space shuttle it would likely show up better at that small size. 2: The small cloud to the lower left of the "M" ends up looking a bit like an underscore character when shrunk, so the letters look like "_M-P-T" You might want to darken or remove that cloud. Hope that was the kind of constructive comments you are looking for. ..DH..
  5. Here's a try... or B&W for other purposes.... e-mail me for the eps files if you like.
  6. How about a victory dance ? (this is just a clip I found, but it made me laugh so I uploaded it for you)
  7. HH - this was an attempt to "illustrate" yet alter one of the photos in your gallery. Feel free to... a: enjoy it b: not use it c: be offended and ask me to remove it from GC.com
  8. It's (I read somewhere) A "King Solomon's" celtic knot. It is said to represent the wisdom of Solomon.
  9. Our family just adopted this little caching buddy a week ago. We hope to teach her to SNIFF out those caches.
  10. Oh my gosh Dino Hunters I can't believe how awsome that is. My love of Basset Hounds is second only to my love of airplanes (hence my name skycop) Can I have your permission to use this on my new business cards? Thank you so much....I had this very idea in my head but was never able to get it on paper. Bob Sky Cop. Sorry for the delays.... I think this guys head looks more like a real hound. Here is just the dog and plane a bit bigger.....
  11. Yup - I'd be at least open for dicussion of the cache location. Alternatives like co-ownership come to mind. Maybe the hider was eyeing up the woods, but was afraid to ask for church permission ? The phrasing of the original opening letter would be very important to opening the conversation however. It would be very easy to give the wrong impression of your opinions and ideas, so tread lightly.
  12. My feedback is to not hold a MO event, and my idea for you is to include everyone who wishes to attend. I'm still waiting for my schedule, and an event near enough to my location to mesh. I'd love to meet some more cachers.
  13. See my log for GCJEP0... There's a pic of my ride there.
  14. I could not think of a way to tastefully put in a yellow etrex - at least not yet.....
  15. Here you go APAANDSONLOOKINGFORFUN. This thread discusses which geocachers are EMS and Fire Fighters. <<-- former Canadian Ski Patrol Society member, volunteer-patroler. also lifeguard/swimming instructor.
  16. That was my post, and on my screen it shows up as having been posted by me.
  17. It still says "Adobe Illustrator" on my screen...am I missing something ? Both posts.
  18. I use an antique version of a program called Micrografx Designer. I have version 4.1 Tech Edition from eons ago, but it still works so.... The "Open Office" suite has a vector editor as part of that package. I have it installed, and should see how well this works on a project some day.
  19. Sure - if you want the EPS file send me an email with an address I can attach a file to.....
