  1. Whatcha doin in Texas? Bring some clear skies back with you along with the warm weather. It's the International Year of Astronomy now that it's 2009 (almost).
  2. I do that second thing too. By day I work for a large company. (Look at almost any electrical device in your home. On the back you will see a circle with two letter inside. That's the company)
  3. I still remember that day 7 years ago. I was on vacation at my favorite place in the world celebrating my 40th birthday. Today I'm 47 and at work. Maybe I'll go out and hit an unfound cache tonight to celebrate my getting old
  4. What's this geocaching thing all of you speak of. I seem to remember doing something like that many many moons ago.
  5. It was snowing lightly about 1/2 hour ago here in South Bend, but it looks like the brunt of the big snowstorm has passed us by. It's been all rain so far. Even LaPorte County in the Lake Effect snow belt has not gotten anything. Maybe I can head over that way this weekend and grab some caches.
  6. I went caching in Michigan yesterday, should have cached in Indiana. I was looking for one particular cache in Fernwood Botanical Gardens for about 45 minutes with another cacher when I realized that not only could I not find the cache, but I couldn't find my car keys!!! I immediately went into a mild panic when I realized that my keys were probably under the fallen leaves somewhere along the nearly three miles of trails we had walked that day. Looked for about 45 minutes by backtracking then decided to head back to my car just in case they were dropped nearby. To my relief, I had left them in the ignition, but the van's doors were locked and the place was going to be closing in about an hour. The cacher I was with, who I had only met yesterday, was nice enough to stop caching and help me out. He drove me all the way back to my house to get my spare keys (I had to break into my own house to get in) then drove me back to Fernwood, about 30 miles round trip! You really do meet the nicest people who share this crazy hobby! Thanks PungoPaddler!
  7. I'll be raking leaves. I got to go caching in CA, NV, UT and AZ last week but I will need my Caching in Indiana fix before too much longer.
  8. So instead I end up in cold and snowy Utah!!
  9. Thanks for the info. I did have Bloomington Overlook bookmarked already as I will be in the St. George area for a day or so but I will certainly have to go after the other one too. Can't wait to get out of cold and snowy South Bend!
  10. {Look for an ugly dude with a beard. Hopefully there will be a good crowd attending so I won't stick out. Ask around for Mike the Executive Director. } Yeah, what he said I may be able to make it but I am getting ready for a big western geocaching trip to Utah, California, Arizona and Nevada so don't know if I will have time to come down for the day. Have fun.
  11. Started out in Potawatomi Wildlife Park getting eight within the park including a FTF on one. Then went caching with Gunpowder on an IGTQ quest and grabbed a total of 21 caches altogether with two DNFs. Saw lots of neat history and a few old covered bridges. Lots of nice fall colors. Some neat old cemeteries. Hit my 400-find milestone. Dropped my PDA and lost all my Cachemate logs . But had a good time Caching in Indiana.
  12. Mike, Let me know if you want me to archive Potawatomi Wilderness now and free up the space for new caches. If these new ones are listed before this Sunday I may have to come down there to grab all of them.
  13. Just checked. The picture shows up OK when I use Firefox Have not tried any other browsers.
  14. Just wanted to jump in and say great job to all involved in the new Indiana Ghost Town Quest series. Looks like it's going to be alot of fun and many great history lessons.
  15. ASTRONOMY, Amateur Radio (KB9BIT), Bicycling, Geocaching, Gardening (yardwork included), Camping, Traveling, Meteorite Collecting, Notre Dame Football and Baseball (watching, that is), Watching Fox News, other stuff I haven't discovered yet.
  16. What is this "cache raid" macro? Essentially it's a program that runs within GSAK that will generate a route from cache to cache and helps you to plan a cache run. Here is a LINK that will explain it better than I can. Hope this helps.
  17. I'll chose an area with a number of caches that I have not done, then upload a PQ for the area to GSAK, filter out those that I don't want to do, then use the CacheRaid macro to determine the order of searching for them.
  18. I can highly recommend these: Funk's Grove Rest Area Travel Bug Resort (GCN16W) Rt.66 Turn Out (GCJCJX) And you can't pass by this without doing it: Mission 12: Blind Canal (GC1596)
  19. I had a 9-DNF day out of 20 that I tried for one day back in November. All were supposedly still there as far as I know.
  20. I've found both of those caches rather recently. North Branch Cache is an ammo can and BuzzzzzOff! is a smalll tupperware type container. Neither are close to any houses, they are in a wooded area. Judging from how far both caches are from the address where the "bomb" was found I was pretty sure it wasn't either one of these. Here is a link to the news story. Not much to it: Link
  21. My thoughts too. I did a quick search of the address and used the coords to see what caches were nearby. These two came up as the closest: GC23FA North Branch Cache GCQ2DR BuzzzzzOff! But, I'm not from the area and am not familiar with these caches. Both are about 0.6 miles from the address of the house fire.
  22. I got a FTF once on a multi which had stages 1 and 2 about three miles apart. Stage 1 was located only about 250 feet from my workplace and stage 2 was one block from my house. Now that was a tailor-made FTF if I ever saw one.
  23. Looks like they got #600 on one of my caches, The North 40, on their 1 year anniversary. My congratulations 501_Gang !!!
