  1. So, even if we are stealthy, we still get caught... Can you share some stories about how you handle it?
  2. We are also new and there are a few we couldn't find. We logged as did not find and then watched the cache. On one of them, several other people couldn't find it either, but then the other two were found right after we left. We went back to one and found it right away. Sometimes it helps to have someone else say, "yes it really is here." I have also found that if I take my family of six, we can't find anything (you would think more eyes would help) but if it is just two or three of us, we find things really quickly.
  3. ok, So I have found several caches, helped some bugs and coins along, found a signature item for now, requested supplies for my birthday, taught the children how to work the gps so I can scan for the cache and I think I am ready to hide my first cache. But HOW do I know where it is ok? I have read the info on Geocaching.com Is there a list of places that are always ok? Public parks Parking lots?? State parks? How do I find out if an empty field is owned and by whom??? If you could just give me a list of the "everybody knows that these places are public property" then I could try some caches out there. My area has a lot, so I think there is a rule about how close to another cache you can place them. I have watched all of geosnippits...I think I am almost ready. Please advise!
  4. Who reviews and publishes? Come on...don't keep me waiting...is there even more to this new hobby?? Where does it end???
  5. It seems like there is a geocoin for everything. How do I find one that suits my interests? When I do searches for geocoins, I have to look through dozens that don't apply to me. Is there an easier way?? I am specifically looking for coins about adoption/foster kids etc and exchange students. Does such a thing exist?? If not, can I make it exist?? Thanks!!
  6. But some of my favorite caches have an agenda (breast cancer awareness in the parking lot of a cancer specialty office, Coffee hints outside a shop, Dont' get busted outside a police station etc) Why can't they have an agenda? Or maybe a theme? Like, leave something from another country? Bring your exchange student with you, send this travel bug home to it's native country...etc? Maybe you should say it this way. Caches “shouldn’t” have to have an agenda. Many reviewers won't publish a cache with an agenda even if it is a good one. There are always caches that slip through. StaticTank "Many reviewers won't publish a cache with an agenda...." What reviewers? What publishing? Geocash.com?

  8. Hi I am a newbie, but am hooked all the way. I have a couple of questions about what I can leave in a cache. I know...no fireworks or food and all that common sense stuff, but what about advertising stuff? Can I order a bunch of personalized pens and leave them? I noticed a business card in a cache, but I was thinking about something people would want like pens or balloons or whatever. When I get brave enough to make my own cache, I want a theme. Can I advertise something? Hmmm...I think I am being too PC. I work for a foreign exchange student company and would love to leave (or create a cache theme) things that would promote exchange students. Would it be ok to have pens made up? Also, has anyone seen adoption geocoins?? They have to be out there somewhere....I saw albino lobsters from northeastern Maine...so adoption awaremess must be out there....how do I find them to start it going?? Thank you!
