  1. I can’t think of a good reason not to it helps everyone . The cachers and the parks…………..JOE
  2. Get Over It, I Did, and still having fun I have notice several threads on this subject of Virtual caches. Around where I am from I am kinda known at the virtual ( 30 of them ) king and I have some of the lamest of them all but they were for a good reason I thought. At first they were declined but later approved after a little explaining because they were done especially for cachers in wheelchairs and kids visiting our local Zoo. With that said let me say that in mid February I had three more declined ( not for the Zoo ) , they referenced me to the guidelines and I began to under stand what they were trying to do. I realized with the help of a local cacher there are really only three kind of caches (1) a puzzle cache where the cache owner wants to see if you can solve it. (2) A unique way of hiding a cache container of some kind and (3) something they want you to see that they think is cool. So instead of just doing another maybe lame virtual cache in the cache description I tell them where they are going and why and if it sounds interesting to them they can go or not. There is a micro hidden at all of these ( Silver Bullet Series ) to find and log, but are near by to what I want them to see. I know I am begging to get flamed here, but I would like you tell me if and am all wet. I have been told that I have wrong before

  12. I am running Plucker on my palm with six hundred complete benchmark reports along with 300 cache pages. I have no idea how he does it ( Robert Lipe the geocacher that developed GPSBABEL for cachers ) I think its magic Heeeee Heeee . I just ask him to do it for me and make a promise that a beer truck will pull up to his house and drop a load off. He is out of town caching right now. When he gets back I will ask if he would explain it to me a little better even though I will not understand any of it. But for now its just MAGIC ……………………JOE As far as I know I am the only one he does this for, but if you can drive a beer truck to his house I am sure something can be worked out.Heeeeeeeeee Heeeeeeeeeee Caching for Life or Divorce which ever comes first

  16. From the Benchmark Page: What do I do when I find one? If you have a digital camera, we ask that you take a picture of the mark, and several pictures of the area around the mark. You can even use a compass to mark your photo so people who see the benchmark can view the area from your point of view. Or just log your find for others to read. You do not take them. These markers are public property and are actively used in surveying. I Looked at the pictures for JC0110 and it looks like a find to me, but its your call …………………… JOE Caching for Life or Divorce which ever comes first
  17. It’s the choice of the cache owners Caching for Life or Divorce which ever comes first
  18. Posted by: Black Dog Trackers A benchmark seen only through a fence doesn't count as a find. The reason for this is that sometimes there are markers set where a benchmark used to be, but it isn't the same one. The only way to tell is to read the disk itself. If you can't see it close enough to read it, you can't count it as a find. Look at this one GC0446 http://www.geocaching.com/mark/details.asp?PID=gc0446 the NGS did called it a find and so will I when I go I not making fun of Black Dog Trackers if it how the NGS does it Caching for Life or Divorce which ever comes first

  21. WOW this is a tough crowd, lighten up its just a game, and yes he went in and came out. They were going to take a picture of Oscar in the cache but I would not allow it, this is a 5 difficulty cache and did not want hints on the web, so I let them take a picture of me with Oscar. Look at the bugs page. Caching for Life or Divorce which ever comes first

  24. One mile from the Nashville International Airport TRAVEL BUG RESORT http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=57077
  25. I have not see any problems with the approvers only with cachers, let them do there jobs. When we look at a cache posted to the forums we are not usually ( some are )looking at the big picture that geocaching.com is trying to do to further the sport for everyone ……….
