  1. I believe I will be able to attend this fine event. If anyone would like to carpool from the Maplewood area let me know. Batonka
  2. I had almost the opposite happen to me. I did four caches in one day and I managed to find all four of them but I almost passed out from heat exhaustion because I didn't bring enough water. Personally, I'd rather have 4 DNFs than almost pass out
  3. Unfortunately another event has superseded this one so I will not be able to attend. Hope everyone else enjoys the event. For those new to geocaching who have never been to an event, geocachers are very friendly towards people new to geocaching so go have some fun! Later, Batonka P.S. It's Batonka NOT Bakonta, Avroerr!
  4. Is it possible to go up the night before, camp out and then grab the spot early in the morning? I think I might be volunteering to do this so that's fine. Later, Batonka
  5. I'm free for both weekends. I would also be interested in overnighting as well. Later, Batonka
  6. Good cache hunt and an excellent after party/mini-event. Didn't know Clifton had such nice drinking establishments Again, great time seeing everyone and I can't wait for the next non-event! Batonka
  7. are people still doing unfinished business? The second details post doesn't mention that.
  8. I always seem to find out about these things right before they're about to go down!!! But, I'll be there probably for both unfinished business and whatever else we end up doing afterwards. Batonka
  9. Hey all, Just wanted to say that my first geocaching group event, NOT event cache , was awesome. Best of all were Planet's wraps. C'est tres bon! Btw, if anyone thinks they're in shape, try following Jonboy up to Where's the trail and Detritus the troll. He's twice my age, carried about ten times what I was carrying in my Camelback in his pack and he still hiked me into the ground. Later, Batonka
  10. I guess we'll recognize you by that hat? Unfortunately, the hat is no longer in my possession. I will, of course, explain it tomorrow Batonka
  11. I'm in as well. If anyone wants to carpool out of Essex county, NJ, fire me an email Later, Batonka
  12. Sounds good to me. Thanks, Batonka EDIT: took out asking for parking co-ords
  13. Just so everyone knows, it's possible to copy paste waypoints from one EasyGPS/ExpertGPS file to another. Step 1. Open the first .loc file and select the waypoints you want either Shift + clicking or Ctrl + clickin them like you would files in windows Step 2. Go to Edit->Copy Step 3. Go to the other file Step 4. Go to Edit->Paste
  14. #1. Have a bus or van from park to park or on a loop around all the parks. Teams get on the bus in a first arrive at checkpoint first get on basis. I know adventure races sometimes have this with public transport trains etc. #2. Make the teams small or just don't worry about it. In orienteering the attitude is always: "Don't follow someone else. They might be going after a different point/on a different course". The stamp card makes sense though. Batonka
  15. Hey all, I'm interested in going. How do I find out exactly when and where we are all meeting? And is Saturday, April 3rd a definite? Thanks, Batonka
  16. Hey all, I was out hunting for cache GCD07 aka Beside the grassy Knoll and bumped into another geocacher which was cool. BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE I set off for GC1093 aka Ball's Bluff and I'm about half way there when I see a guy who from far away looks like he's painting something. I think "cool, a landscape painter". As I get closer I see he's painting something standing up. At first, I think it's a trunk or maybe a statue or something. As I get even closer, it begins to look like a statue of maybe a native american or something and maybe he's painting/carving it. then the statue MOVED. At this point I realize he's painting a girl so I yell out "Should I leave?" and they both look my way and the girl turns around and she's NAKED and covered in what looked like brown body paint. Modesty forced me to avert my gaze and continue on towards the cache as they started laughing and he covered her up with a blanket. Not bad for my second day geocaching. What a great hobby
