  1. I purchased a travel bug decal a short while ago and cant figure it out. In the ad it states that it clings to the inside of the window but the picture of the item is this...

    If I put it on the inside of my window (similar color to the ad) I can t see it.. Any tips?

    Tips?? Uh huh.... take it to a vinyl sign shop and have them make an external decal of it and put it on the outside of the window.


    Dude, check out Debbiedoesdecals.com for your needs. I used them for mine, ordered a week before GW8, got it the day before I left TX.

  2. I spent a couple of years living in Hawaii, so I am looking for the Version 1 Hawai`i Hibiscus Micro Geocoin in orange. Unfortunately I was deployed, so I didnt get a chance to grab one. If you have a willingness to sell or trade, let me know. I have a couple of the new ones laying around.

  3. Hello all.


    First post so far but have been doing aLOT of lurking. really enjoying this hobby and plan to head into it full steam.


    I love finding caches but I am now ready to hide some. we have ALOT of what I consider normaly style hides in our area and i want to add a few that are a bit more creative. nothing against a regular hide but to me its much more fun to find a cache that looks like its part of the enviroment as opposed to being placed on the enviroment. (hope that made sence)


    anyways my question is simple. I own a metal and wook working shop and we have spent the last two weeks building three caches. i want to know the following.


    how to i decide the difficulty?


    how long does it take to have a cache approved and made active?


    i got all the info for them already and plan to subbmit them tonight. just wondering the above two things.


    thanks in advance for any and all info. my wife and I are greatly looking forward to our future in geocaching.

    When you go to register your cache, there will be a link in the D/T area to get a better idea what your cache should be. Its about 10 questions, so not too long to get an answer. As for cache approval, it can take a day to a couple weeks... Heck I have 37 that have been waiting for a while.. anyway, average review i get from other cachers is about 72 hours. Happy caching!

  4. I was wondering, if there is an option to do state only searches. IE, I want to locate all the caches in Oklahoma that are virtual or earthcaches. No I do not desire to run a query, that will take me into other states, but would like an option to just select the state I am visiting, then select the cache type I am looking for.


    Some of us are working on a caching game, but a rule is it has to stay inside our state, and you can only have so many of each cache. Would be nice to narrow it down for people....


    Just a thought!

  5. Dont worry to much, I created one, filed for the Silver status, and got the web icon. I tried before, it got kicked. So I resubmitted, changed a few things and its approved. Now I wait for geocaching to approve it.... its been sitting for a week now....

  6. As I cache around the US and the world, adding the geocache master pins is an added bonus. I have my bronze, but just earned my silver. I hate to see the pins go away, but wouldn't mind paying for one. Let us know when we can purchase. Thank you all for your great support and keeping up the fun. God bless...

  7. I need to find someone willing to go out to a cache in the San Antonio area. The cache has been archived, but I emailed to owner to find out if he'd gone out to retrieve any of the TB's or anything that might have been left out there. His reply was that he's not into caching anymore and hasn't been out to the site in awhile. I have a TB that might be stuck out there that I'd like to get back out traveling.


    The cache site is near Ingram Park mall. (I'm in KS, so I can't just go get it myself).


    Let me know if someone could help. Thanks so much!!


    If you are still searching, let me know. I live in SA, so I can see if its there. PM me with details if so.

  8. Looking to add the ability to search based on terrain/difficulty. I have been looking for a 5/5 for a while, there are only 1200 in the world. Got drunk, stumbled on one about 3 miles from my house, go figure. But I could use this to plan some easy caching for my little ones and granny, leaving the harder for the wife and I. Also could help those of us doing the all around challenge find the elusive caches we are needing.

  9. Been reading on this new family member to the geocaching community. Sounds fun, interesting, and well, it gets me out of my house, so maybe I will get some sun. My "friend" asked if this was going to be come a cache category, similar to the multi cache, but you needed to submit photos and answer questions from a trail sponsor. IE, you take a photo at the start, at coordinate 1 answer a question, coordinate 2 answer a question or take a photo, then at the end take a photo showing completion. No real rules, but just a suggestion. I like the Rails To Trails icon, that would something nice to have showing in the stats. Comments or suggestions?

  10. As many of us have found through looking, most of the state and national parks systems do not want any geocaches on their property. Granted, I understand this completely, seeing as we have a few less than cordial cachers out there. So, that led me to talk to a Park Ranger in Hawaii about a geocaching alternative in conjunction with the NPS. It would be similar to the passport idea the NPS has now, but can be done with geocaching. The premise is going to a select point in the park (generally the main station or visitor center), you answer some questions on the parks history, stats, specs, etc..., then you get credit for it. Some say this is similar to the earth caches, in a way it is. But you are learning about the park and visiting a wonderful place. Just wanting some feed back from others, see if this would be something folks would be interested in.



  11. Went to get on the SA geocaching site, low and behold, it is listed as spyware/malware. I would ask the administrator to get it cleaned up and fixes. Site appears to have been hacked, I would recommend an SSL for all sites, even the Texas primary. Just a nerd trying to save peoples identity. Thank you.

  12. I am trying to get a weekend trip to Hilo and Volcano. I am wondering if there any cachers that would possibly like to join if I can swing it. Looking at 13-16 Feb. Let me know. I want to hit all the Earths and a few caches... starting a list I would love to hit.
