  1. That's really great news. So rarely happens, but it does happen.


    Keep it safe and remove the tracking # from your post -- use the reference # instead (TB2JMBZ).


    Wish it a long life and happy travels.


    Thank you Gitchee

  2. Our very first TB (Red & Jada's Baby TB2JMBZ) was set out on its journey on March 1st 2009. After three months it went missing. The other day I received an email from a geocacher. After almost two years, our Red & Jada's Baby has been rescued and is alive and well. I couldn't believe it when I first read that email! Its was such a surprise! Never though we would hear anything from our TB again.

    Apparently, the last cache it was in was muggled and our TB has been living in the woods for almost for two years. Now we are excited to watch its travels once again.



  3. While it's a good thing that they want to be the CITO sponsor, the good thing about having a CITO event is that no one really needs to have a sponsor. I don't know who started the raffle idea, or the giving away of gifts, but I do know that it isn't absolutely necessary to have a good event. Most geocachers receive plenty at a CITO, they go home with the reward of having done a really good deed. That's a good feeling. Don't let not having "sponsor gifts" ruin your day. Sometimes, when I'm busy having fun at an event, and I have to stop what I'm doing to go see who's going to win a trinket, it throws off the "fun" momentum. And only one person goes home with a good "new GPS" feeling, the rest are bummed out they didn't win it. If you don't receive donations, it won't spoil the fun at all. If you really want to have something to give away, you can ask your local cachers to pitch in like they did at one of the very first Cache In Trash Out events.

    So, instead of having a raffle, you can always play some games, take time out for lunch, talk with each other, show off your coins, take a group photo, pick up the trash. There's plenty to do instead.


    Thank you so much for caring about your parks and open spaces.


    I have to agree with this 100%. I have busted my butt to put together my CITO events. Just a short time to do a little clean up in the places we play. But what I have seen, the local cachers are not interested in picking up trash.

  4. I am hosting three C.I.T.O events in the coming weeks.


    Event # 1. Plum Creek Park CITO GC23T0E on 04/25/2010. This event is scheduled to be part of the 8th annual national C.I.T.O events.


    Event # 2. Fred Fuller Park CITO GC23Y09 on 05/02/2010


    Event # 3 Al Lease Park CITO GC23YTX on 05/29/2010


    At the Al Lease Park C.I.T.O, there will be a cook out after the trash pickup. I will be supplying burgers and dogs, buns, pop/water plates, etc… So please bring a dish to go with.


    Thanks to the geocaching community, I will be giving away some great geocaching stuff at each event. Including a Delorme PN-40 at the Al Lease Park C.I.T.O


    This is a great chance to come out and lend a hand, put faces with names. If you are new to geocaching, this is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow geocachers and get some caching tips.


    I hope to see you there,



  5. Any suggestions anyone?

    Geocaching is a fun hobby.


    What you experienced doesn't sound like fun. My advise: Forget about it. It's just not worth the worries. There is so much more to explore.




    Sometimes people forget that geocaching is only a game. Its not a competition. But to some it is all about the numbers. Why? I dont know. If I were the OP I would just let it go and move on. There are more to explore.

  6. It is in great shape, works just fine. Comes with head phones and the USB cable. Besides using it for music, it works great for paperless caching. You can load cache descriptions, hints, logs. (dose not support HTML) I use CacheMagnet to transfer to the ipod. You can sort by cache name or GC code.


    I upgraded to a new ipod with more storage and video.


    $50.00 shipped within the USA.

  7. Im hosting three CITO events starting in about two months.


    Plum Creek CITO GC23T0E


    Fred Fuller Park CITO GC23Y09




    Al Lease Park CITO GC23YTX I will be summiting this one later today.


    I still could use some more geocoins or geo swag gear to use as door prizes.


    Writeshoprobert has committed.


    GeocoinGuy has made a very generous donation.


    Thanks you guys.


    Just wondering if anyone else would like to help out in anyway? Of course, I will list you on the cache listing pages.


    Thanks everyone.



  8. $5.95 on this website, would be intresting to find out what they charge for shipping




    t4e, they want $15.30 to ship.


    I have noticed a key word here though "use too"


    There is a gun, knife, military show coming up at the end of the month here in Cleveland. Ill have to go check it out.


    I don't want to hide these. I want to give them away at my CITO events I'm hosting this spring. So if anyone wants to donate, I won't stop you. :laughing:



  9. I will be hosting four CITO events this spring. The goal is to clean four of the Portage County Parks. The first event, Dix Park CITO GC232RB is part of the 8th annual national CITO events.

    One week later will be Seneca Ponds CITO. And the Portage Bike/Hike trail CITO and Towners Woods CITO will be published in about 3-4 weeks.


    Towners Woods CITO will include a cook out. There will be some great give aways at each event, Caches, geocoins, geo gear. And thanks to the people at DeLorme, I will be giving away a PN-40 (see cache listings for details)


    So come out, help out, meet fellow cachers and just have fun. Hope to see you there....

  10. different systems won;t make a difference. Its just a case of copying and pasting some code.


    make sure you have HTML enabled in the cache description and then copy and paste the below

    <img src="
    width="300px" height="300px">



    str33ty, that worked. thanks. How did you get that img link? I tried everything last night and couldnt figure it out. I tried all the img links on photobucket but I couldnt get any of them to work. Did I miss something?


    Thanks for the link Touchstone.


    thanks again

  11. Well, I don't really think so. As some of you know, I am hosting four CITO events this spring/early summer. The first one Dix Park CITO GC232RB


    When I saw Magellan was the sponsor, I thought what a better place to ask for donations for my CITO events. Just looking for some Magellan geocaching swag gear. T-shirts, hats, stickers, etc... Just something for some give a ways at my events. So I sent an email to Magellan and this is what I got back.


    Hi Patrick,

    Thank you for your inquiry regarding donations at Magellan.

    We have been privileged in the past to participate in great causes like your own and hope to do more of that in the future. Unfortunately, our corporate-giving program is currently not funded so we will not be able to accommodate your request at this time.

    We wish you the best in your efforts.

    Should you require further assistance about this or any other concerns with your Magellan unit please visit our website and review our extensive Self Help Knowledge Base (www.magellangps.com) .


    Thank you for choosing Magellan and have a safe day!

    Yours truly,

    Abigail (AM20166)

    Magellan Technical Support



    And Magellan is the sponsor because?


    The Garmin and Delorme people have committed. I don't see why the sponsor cant help promote CITO????


    Boy this is frustrating :o:ph34r::D


    Any comments?





  12. Ok, my first of four CITO event has been published. Dix Park CITO GC232RB Dix Park CITO This is a little later than originally planned. When I saw the 8th Annual Cache In Trash Out Events are scheduled for April 24th & 25th, 2010, I couldn't resist and figured what a better time for a CITO event.


    So Im asking, if you would like to donate a unactivated geocoin for this event or any of the next three events please contact me through my geocaching profile. If you would like to send/drop an activated coin into any event I will make sure a fellow geocacher picks it up and moves it along.


    If you would like to donate anything geocaching. Stickers, swag, geocoins, anything geocaching related, please contact me.


    I don't have anything to offer back except to list your geocaching name on the cache listing (if you want).


    Im hopeful for a 10-15 geocacher turn out at the Dix Park CITO event. And hope that number grows as the events go on.


    As for Seneca Ponds, The Portage Bike/Hike Trails and Towners woods CITO events, Im working on the cache pages now and will be published in the next few weeks (three month rule) The goal is to knock out all events by the end of May or early June.


    Thank you for taking your time to read this.



    AKA Patrick


    I see my link didnt work so I will try again. Dix Park CITO GC232RB


    I hope it worked this time.


    I know its still early yet, but still looking for some geocoins, swag, etc... for these events. I have the Seneca Ponds, Portage Bike/Hike trail and Towners Woods pages almost ready to be published, But have wait about a month to summit.

    If you are interested in donating a coin or anything for these events, please let me know. Thanks to the cachers that have offered so far.


    Thanks again,


  13. I have a TB (TB2ARD6) that's for my son's 6th grade class to follow. They just finished studying the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, so I though it would be fun for it to start its travels there, in modern-day Iraq. Are any cachers there who would let me mail it to them and who would start it off?

    Look up MAGC

    Military association of geoCachers. they will be able to help you, search for their website


    Look at GC1QMWT, its an archived event by the MAGC in Iraq but it should give you some contact info. I sent a CITI geocoin there and they sent it back after the event. It was pretty cool.
