# Tiffany's Slaves

1. ## Gerirl Hits 100 Finds

A wag of the tail to you!
2. ## Sad News For NJ Geocachers

I remembered that we have a picture of Helmut's walking stick. We were out after a pretty new cache and found the familiar (for anyone who ever hiked with Helmut) stick. We were going to just give it back to him but instead decided to post a "lost and found" note in this forum along with a picture. This quickly brought a phone call and soon, Helmut over to our house for his stick. Evidently, he did not realize that the new name was photoshopped in place.
3. ## You Might Not Be Alone Out There.

Just bring a couple of small poodles to throw. Then the cougar won't bother you. At least that's what I'd do. Hey...that is NOT a good idea
4. ## Sad News For NJ Geocachers

We are absolutely STUNNED. Living the in the same town, we ran into Helmut on many occasions in addition to encountering him on the trails. A good man who will be missed by all of us.
5. ## Help! Spherical Trigonometry To Find A Cache...

So Tiffany's Slaves get none of the love here. May your caches be infested with ticks and tupperware eating animals!
6. ## Help! Spherical Trigonometry To Find A Cache...

Actually you have this The elevation angle converts handily to a distance (length). Subtract the elevation angle from 90, then multiply it by 60 nautical miles per degree and you have the distance in nautical miles. From there, divide by 6000 to get distance in feet and so on to get it in whatever units you want. Once Upon a time, Tiffany's Head Slave was a ship's navigator (with sextant) and had to learn all of this stuff. If you have more questions, i can try to look it up in some reference books that are at home. Don't you need an elevation of either the observed point, or the point you are observing from? In navigationg a ship I would assume that you can asume your elevation to be more or less Sea Level? For the purpose of this type of problem (spherical trig solution of celestial nav), you assume obersver is at 0 and the observed object is at infinity. When doing celestial nav via the more traditional sight reduction techniques, you will always make allowance for the "height of eye" which is deck height plus the height of the sextant above it.

8. ## Harry Dolphin Hits 700

A big wag of the tail to you
9. ## Ever Run Into Other Cachers?

We sure have run into other cachers during the hunt - and not always on FTF treks. Harry Dolphin, Andy Bear, Dobsonian, Stayfloopy, Cazray and Mrs Caz, Skully and Mulder, Woodlit, Straatmaker 5, Lakelady plus others.
10. ## Go Pvc-free

Oh my god... this is TERRIBLE! I think that Groundspeak can help end this despoilation of our earth by listing seperately all geocaches that are placed in PVC containers. Make them a seperate category. For that matter, lets have categories for Ammo Cans, Lock & Locks, Tupperware and Chinese Food Containers. That way, I can avoid any caches that are placed in old Chinese Soup Containers as I object to their cruel use of MSG!
11. ## Ever Encounter Dangerous Animals While Caching?

Well, in the wilds of Northwestern New Jersey we've run into Bears and dangerous snakes on several occasions. But on hte more dangerous level, we have had sightings of the deadly Dolphin (harry) and even more disturbing and potentially deadly were the encounters with the feared BrianSnat! The last two are DEFINITELY enough to scare you out of the woods!
12. ## What's In Your First Aid Kit?

Forgot that. I always have it along. Not so much for me, beause my boots fit, but there is always someone who is wearing new or ill fitting hiking boots. Well, OK Mr Rockafeller... thanks for announcing that YOUR boots fit. Next time I'll put jelly in them to see if they also fit the bears (((stomach)))
