  1. Make sure Avroair knows not to go geocaching in his Plushie deer outfit.



    All is lost! :laughing:


    First he was talking about it around the campfire at GONE, he mentioned it to me the other day on the phone, and now this. I hear that costume will be featured on his new personal coin.

    I heard he was going to host a "Plushie Deer Event" where everyone has to wear a deer suit to be able to log the event. The event will be at the Lotsa Hunters Wildlife Management Area and is sheduled for the first day of hunting season. <_<

  2. I am in the middle of moving to Jefferson. I am pretty sure my neighbors hunt in the park that abutts my back yard. I am setting up a tree stand to pick them off, or at least the game they flush into my yard. Geocachers are welcome and besides, the paitnballs won't really be lethal.


    Anxiously awaiting my first bear encounter in my yard... and my wifes reaction.

    Hey BMSquared... you should apply to join the JGS (Jefferson Geocaching Society)... Skully and Mulder, Treequest, Yeolwoodman, Tiffany's Slaves to name a few that you might know.


    Are you going to give your brother your new address or just the 'tudes?

  3. I asked Brian if it was ok to host the image on the NNJC site so anyone can pull it down and he was ok with that.


    At least through this weekend in order to allow anyone going to the event to pull down the image, you can access it at:



    You should be able to right-click the above link and Save Target As to your local machine, or click the link to display the JPG map in your browser and then right click the image in the browser to save it locally. Note: There's actually _ characters in the file name which you just can't see when it was converted to a hyperlink.


    Thanks again Brian!!

    Doesn't seem to print correctly from there.

    Just downladed and printed it here - looks good to me..


    Brian... you know what they say... the mind is the SECOND thing to go

  4. >Don't even start the Mets/Yanks debate Tiffany's biatches, it just makes me devise new ways to cook that dog. I'm thinking tailgating at Shea, stuffed pig idea...


    Hey Neil... don't be a hater! Maybe the Mets will win a couple of pennants some day. :anitongue:

  5. 250 will have the Statue of Liberty---Errrrr ? Wouldn't that make it the NJ Geocoin ? :huh:  Seriously, NYC Skyline  the most famous profile in the world.

    I know, the Statue of Libery is in NJ waters but you're still looking at her a$s. That might explain the smell over there though. :o

    Some people think a nice a$s is worth looking at. Maybe you ought to walk from my office to the Path station every day... it's the most enjoyable part of my day!


    Other then when I get home to my lovely family.

    Considering where you work, I can understand that sentiment!

  6. Trying to clear out a 10 miles circle?  Do a search based on zip 07438 and you will find 10 pages and most of an 11th are within 10 miles.  A total of 214 caches within 10 miles  (these are highlands caches, not urban micros  :o ).

    Oh Boo Hoo. I have too many quality caches close to my home :huh:

    Oh, we're not COMPLAINING! :o


    So may caches.. so little time

  8. If you REALLY want it to represent New York in a way that people recognize, you should have the Yankees NY logo and pintripes on the coin!

    VOMIT <_<

    Don't be a HATER there Mets fan! 26 Championships are like 24 more then the hapless team from Flushing (how appropos)

  9. I accept your apology and hope you will accept mine for coming on so defensively (It's quite out of character for me. I am generally content to be a lurker - hence the sig line.)  I am sorry for apparently misunderstanding the intent of your original post.  It sounded to me like an unfair indictment of So. Jersey cachers in general.  I will be glad to be wrong about that.


    I do not personally consider Philadelphia or Doylestown (where the SEPAC event was held) to be South Jersey.

    (Don't tell this to SEPAG, but I don't consider those areas to be So. Jersey either! :cry: )


    /lurk <_<

    You're all wrong. South jersey starts south of Route 80.

    Geologically Speaking, that is pretty close to the Glacial Moraine and thus is a GOOD dividing point for South Jersey/North Jersey.

  10. >Instead I get Mr. Know-it-all who when I prove him wrong


    First off all, I can't seem to find where I was "proven wrong". If you thaough that your response to "And the Long Island military base that you were flying near was??? was proving me wrong, then you misread me. I never said that there was not a bsae on LI, I MERELY tried to get an ID of what was there.


    As for being a "Mr Know-it-all", thanks for the promotion but I am far from it. For example, the many threads on identifying snakes, critters and one type of tick from another. Heck, I am even fairly clueless about those things. However, after being a long time user of Satellite Naviagation and then working in the industry for a long time, I do have a passing familiarity with this arena. Considering that there are real world threats that must be addressed, it happens that these topics come up pretty often.


    Sorry that you got your undies in a twist, if you want to ascribe your outage to the military, go ahead... they are an easy target and gee... it COULD be!!!

  11. Francis S. Gabreski ANGB


    Francis S. Gabreski Airport (ANGB) is located in Long Island (Westhampton Beach, Suffolk County), New York, approximately 80 miles east of New York City. It is home to the 106th Rescue Wing which operates HC-130 Hercules and MH-60G Black Hawk helicopters to provide war and peacetime aerial rescue services. The base encompasses 88 acres and contains 34 buildings; 32 Industrial and 2 Services, amounting to approximately 311,000 square feet. There is no family or transient housing. The day-to-day base population is approximately 250 personnel; however, one weekend each month the population surges to 826 in response to Air National Guard drills.


    And you were saying? (you can remove your foot from your mouth before you talk.) :)


    We were transitioning Long Island (South to North) between Gabreski and Long Island / MacArthur Airport.

    Considering that I have spent over 30 years in the military and currently work in the industry that makes devices such as what you refer to, I can tell you that it is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that a small ANG base would have such a thing and EVEN IF THEY DID, the rules against using this sort of thing within the US are EXTREMELY STRICT. People lose their careers and pensions for FAR LESS then this.


    You really need a lot more then "a tech from Garmin says the military does this sometimes" and then picking a military installation off the map.


    By the way, if I was going to investigate this, I'd look at a few salient points so as not too appear too clueless...


    1. Was that unit even DRILLING on that day... many reserve bases operate on only one weekend a month.


    2. Your timeline is between 1700 and 1800 PM. When reservists are drilling, they are usually done for the day before 1700.


    3. If the Lincoln Park that you mention is the one in Northern NJ and your reception only improved when you got near there then it is HIGHLY UNLIKELY that a device at the ANG base caused your problem. GPS can EASILY be jammed or spoofed over a small area but doing this over a wide area is MUCH more involved. Remember, this could also blank out Commercial airplanes going into Kennedy and Laguardia to say nothing of Islip.


    Bottom Line.. VERY UNLIKELY... In fact, I'd go further then that and say its right up there with the claim that a Navy Destroyer shot down the TWA 747 in that same area.
