  1. I haven't been stopped yet. One time a police was literally watching me from far away lol.


    Of course I try to stay away from neighborhoods and playgrounds where people might think its weird.


    One time I was at the cemetery in the dead of night (I got lost for a bit) and a pickup truck went through the dirt road at full speed and I didn't know if I should hide behind a grave or just stand there.


    But one time I was stopped by a security guard because it was a busy area. I try to show him what geocaching was and he was having none of it so I obliged and took off.


    Another time I must have looked sus because I was driving around trying to find the entrance to a parking garage where the cache was but there were pillars closing the entrance and I spotted a security guard on top of the garage watching me. I parked on the business next to the garage and just walked there and the security guard was gone by the time I got there. 



  2. I'm having trouble with  new cache I just placed.


    Its a magnetic stuck to the bottom of a bridge.


    First FTF cacher found it on the ground and put it back.


    --I went and maintenance


    2nd cacher found it and placed it and "made it more hidden"


    3rd cacher with 1 find found it no problem


    after the 3rd cacher I went to the bridge and the cache is nowhere to be seen..


    I think there must be a gang of kids or something that like to hang out at the bottom of the bridge. As soon as I placed it and made it "live" the FTF found it on the ground..I don't get it..

  3. I always bring water, bandages, in the summer sun spray and mosquito repellent.

    Sometimes if I am going to be caching in the middle of the woods by myself I carry a small rifle.


    OOH! and I did work on medieval armor and sometimes will wear a light chain mail shirt and metal arm guards. Worked on keeping thorns from cutting into my arms.


    Which brings me to my story, after walking about a half mile in dense woods my rifle strap got caught in thorn vines and the ring that attaches it to the stock got ripped off. Luckily I was wearing this chain mail piece made of metal rings and I took a ring off my shirt and attached it to the stock of the rifle and fixing my strap. Then without me knowing it the magazine came off the rifle...noticed when I got back to the car...its out there in the woods somewhere.

  4. I usually random stuff I find at home, I leave guitar picks, and other small things.


    Last year though I bought a box of mini pokemon toys (24)


    It was funny, I'd put the pokemon in the caches depending on the area.


    Near a church with trees I put a Pachirisu.


    One had a run off pipe nearby I put a Muk.


    One was near a Gym I put a Hitmonlee.


    Left a Sableye in a cemetery cache.


    I have a bunch of big items that I haven't been able to fit inside a cache. I got a couple of like pokeballs and stuff I want to put in there.

  5. That's happened to me a couple of times.


    One time I walked through a muddy construction site during the night to find a cache but then realized I left my pen in the car. I walked all the way back and walked all the way back to the cache.


    Another time I remembered to put a pen in my shirt pocket but as I was bending down it probably came off. When I found the cache my pen was nowhere to be found ? but luckily there was a pencil in the cache container.


    Another time I was dropping off a client's vehicle at their work place and just happened to be a cache there. I didn't have any of my stuff, I left my pen in his car too so I had to take pictures to prove I found it. From now on I try to keep 2 pens in my car.


  6. This is a question I've had in a while. I usually cache alone about 95% of the time. Sure I protect myself from the elements with boots and bug spray and sun screen.


    Since I cache alone I don't usually venture out that far in secluded areas. ie forests and stuff.


    I live in Texas where open carry is legal. I have a long gun and I've been wanting to take it with me while caching in the forests (of course no public or national parks). 

    It should be legal and of course I don't want to alarm other people b/c of Hiking Trails are a mile from the cache zone.


    What are your opinions on this topic and do you carry any sort of protection on secluded areas?

  7. I dressed up as a knight. I made a chain mail thing made out of actual metal and some armor plates at the bottom and I put on a cape and a little helmet with feathers on top. I made most of it for the renaissance festival that comes to Houston. Then I decided why not keep wearing it its not like its not gonna last. I didn't cache on Halloween though cause I worked.

    But I did put on my costume again and stood "guard" by a tree in front of our house. I scared this lady and her daughter she thought I was a statue decoration. Then I scared these 2 teenage girls they were running in the streets and I yelled, what are you running from?? They had no idea I was there somehow they missed a large guy in a knight costume, they were like OMG what was that?!
