  1. Drumroll please..................I think I actually solved my FIRST Fizzymagic puzzle cache! I started with Cross Words and solved it but I'll have to go back to Livermore to find it. I also worked on Speling Qwiz, but still have more work to do on that one. I hope this isn't the start of another addiction! :lol:


    Why hasn't anyone found CVC TAg yet? Do I have to go down to the edge of the earth and find it for you local boys? That's pretty far south for me, but I think I could make it there and back again.

  2. Mid-Life Crisis. Now hold it down. I don't want her knowing I was the one that told you. Shhhh. I think I hear her coming. ;)

    Mid-Life? But she looks so young in her picture! :(

    That's because the picture was taken when I was in third grade Ted. And yes, I admit it, I'm having a mid-life crisis. (Undoubtably caused by certain other cachers who shall remain nameless.) Sometimes I can't even remember my own name!

    Anyway, I posted the photos from Pot of Trouble today. Here they are. I got a good laugh out of them and hope you all do too. I couldn't figure out a few of them....maybe the unknowns could post their names? Enjoy! :(

  3. Hello all. I live in Cuyama, and was wondering what your definition of "Central Valley" was? When I lived in Bakersfield, I thought that was the Central Valley.


    I have been geocaching for under a month, and would love to get to know others who cache :blink:


    We have a pretty broad definition of Central Valley. We welcome anyone who lives, works, or caches anywhere from Sacramento to Bakersfield. In fact there is an event in Modesto on March 19th. Here's the link. You would be sure to meet several of the local cachers there. Hope to see you there. -Patsy of Outrageous Fortunes

  4. I thought of some more definitions:


    dramadary = a Camel who enjoys creating drama in the caching world


    kennydothat? = what you say when you realize what Camel has done


    schmucklist = a totally useless Geocaching feature (especially when you're playing with cheaters)


    farceur de chevre = a goat farming clown




    and let's not forget


    patsy = my new name

  5. I'm getting bored waiting for CVC Tag!!! to be placed, so I've been reading "Today's Cacher". I especially liked this page: Geocaching Terminology


    I thought up these:


    Misfortune: When you call OF for a life line and the half adults won't tell you anything.


    Tagger: Someone who is obsessed with finding and hiding CVC Tag!!!


    Tromp Loy: What some local cachers wanted to do after they looked for "Trom's First" cache at the Civic Auditorium.




    Now let's hear some others.


    ps: I just love it when my cute little third grade face pops up first on a new forum page :)

  6. What's a 'work day'? Every day's a 'work day' when you live on a farm.

    Hey, wait a minute! I couldn't cache on the weekend because I was workin' on MY farm. I tilled the south 40, the north 40 and the west 50, planted my row crops and fertilized my grasses, pruned the orchard, tested my irrigations systems, AND fed the farm hands three meals a day! A man may work from sun to sun, but a WOMAN'S work is never done. :o

    February 23, 2005 Camel680 said, "I will put this out in the next couple of days..."


    I've been sitting in my car with the engine idling waiting for this to be placed. I'm gettin low on gas. Come on Camel, hide it already! :D

  8. ......I'll send the new coordinates to Laura for you... just so she can get a head start - of course. ;)


    Plot, scheme, plan, collusion, conspiracy, complicity, involvement......


    Why would GreenAchers know anything about where Tag was before Camel even hid it? They are up to no good, I tell ya! ;)

  9. And speaking of plotting and scheming! I almost have CVC tag out and ready to hunt!!!!! I am throwing the gauntlet for those of you in our neighboring county to the north!!!!! Let's see if you can retrieve it prior to us Stanislausians! Just remember there is a new twist to it. BUT I wll tell you that TAG itself has not changed!

    Now this is intriguing, isn't it? I'll be right there Kenny! :laughing:

  10. 2 for the road will be hitting (and passing!) the 500 mark this weekend :lol:. Seems to be the number to hit!

    Congratulations in advance to 2ForTheRoad! :lol::lol: At the rate I'm going I'll be there sometime in 2007. :angry:

    And I should say thank you to them for "help" with my new avatar. :lol::lol:

  11. Has anyone else ever had an OTF? (Only to Find) We found a cache on September 19, 2004 and no one else has ever found it! It's still there, cachers are trying to find it, but no one else has.


    I challenge you geo-genius types to find this cache: To market, To market


    The gauntlet has been thrown down.  ;)

    CONGRATULATIONS to Sanruft and TeamJudd for finding this cache! They accepted the challenge and came through with a little hint. (They received the hint while out caching because they have "internet access" on the creek. :D:D ) Way to go guys!

  12. Thanks for the hint Jeepy. I finally found CVCTag in that horrible place! And thanks too, for that new AWESOME satellite photo resource. I backtracked your log and used it myself to capture the latest photo showing the location without CVCTag. Way kewl!
