  1. There is This one! Instead of space, this one is at the bottom of the ocean.
  2. Im not from the area, but that place looks pretty secluded. Not many people drive by, judging on how they just left the car in that position on the side of the road. (I could be wrong) That is awesome, great find jkershaw2000.
  3. Yes! I definitely plan on being at that event, I cant wait to take photos!
  4. In my opinion I think its better than Facebook right now. Besides Geocaching, I am going for a career in Photography and this site is more focused on picture oriented posts. Finding random people with similar interests. Instead of having to friend people, you can just follow them and place them in a particular circle you create. Like the one I created for Geocaching, I can put fellow cachers in there, and any posts, photos, blogs or articles that relate to caching, I can post to that specific circle and only those people in that circle of mine get to see it. It basically eliminates those stupid posts that people put on Facebook that nobody really cares about. Its more focused on sharing ideas and interests with more people than the ones you know. As a photographer this is really awesome, I've already got a photography circle with over 50 people in it that all have an interest in photography. Any time I want to post a High res photo that my friends have already been forced to look at by me I can specifically allow that photo or photo album to be seen by the people in my photo circle. There is a lot more than just that but this is the key to Google+ Right now it is still in Beta and yes it is invite only. So if you dont have a friends who is on that can spare you one please email me and Ill send one to you if I can.
  5. I just added you to my Geocachers Circle. I had 18 others already in that circle. When I was creating my circles from the "Find and Invite" suggestion list there were a couple of people that I had not previous followed on any Social Web app; Sergey Brin and Mark Zuckerberg. I created a circle and put both of them in it. Sweet! And when adding me and others, please let them know you are a cacher, because I dont want any muggles in my caching circle.
  6. I was wondering if there were any Geocachers on Google+ yet so I can start my Geocaching circle. You can add me to yours! http://goo.gl/iBLSI
  7. thats so random! AHAHA. I think its fun tho, I played it for a little bit
  8. wow, this i really interesting. What if the DNF's are ways of saying you found it or something weird like that to make it seem like its hard and have people thinking its hard or something? Idk but this has gotten me really curious if its actually there or not. I wanna know!
  9. So I went caching on Monday and as I was walking through this park I saw a guy teaching a girl how to unicycle and I thought of this post. I actually really wanna learn how to do it now. I ride me mountain bike everywhere and I can ride with no hands standing up, would it be kind of the same thing, or totally different? I'm sorry to say that riding a bike with no hands and standing is nothing like riding a unicycle. I tried to prepare my-self by doing that before I got my unicycle, but there is no comparison. Although with perseverence and dedication you can do it. If you do end up getting a unicycle I would reccomend the brand Torker or Koxx-one. -Denver#9- Thanks for the tip!

  11. Well did you get it? Nope! We saw it with a flashlight, it had fallen to the ground and so the guy couldn't dig under the metal or remove it from the pole. We just logged it as a needs maintenance. He was a very strange man and didn't seem to care that people were Comming to grab the cache, but at first he scared the s*** out of us!
  12. Ive been caught in the act many times, but I usually just ignore people around me when Im trying to find the cache unless they actually come up to me and ask. the only time it was awkward for me was this one cache that was in front of someones house on a telephone pole! I went at night...late at night, and I had my flashlight and I was just going about my business and I figured the home owner was asleep but he actually just got home and parked right in front of his house, got out and asked if there was a problem. Now I forgot to mention that I was with my 3 other friends and they booked it down the street when the car pulled up in front of the house, but like I said before I ignore everyone when searching so I stayed there stubborn. I told him that my friends and I are searching for something that is hidden in this area, a geocache. I apologized about being in front of his house at night, but he actually new what it was and stated that his friend must have put it there to mess with him. He ended up searching for it with us and when we saw that the cache had fallen down this metal opening in the pole he went in his garage and came out with a crowbar! At this point my friends were back and trying to convince him that its ok, we dont want the cache that bad, haha.
  13. Honestly I really don't care what people think. Im not doing anything illegal and I don't act paranoid so I don't think I look suspicious. If someone asks ill tell them about geocaching and thats that. The only stealth thing that I do is when I actually find the cache, I try not to let people see me putting it back, just incase someone is watching me I wouldn't want it to be muggled after I leave GZ.
  14. I never thought if this and I dont know why, haha. I have a few unpublished caches and one that is archived and I just want it to go away. I am definitely going to use that for another cache listing now instead of making a completely new one. Thanks!
  15. I was caching in a park and one of the caches was a metal tin can with a plastic lid on the top. When I opened the cache there was a yellow trash bag inside with all of the wet toys and logbook. The tin can was so rusted that it actually blended with the brown leaves creating a good camouflage by mistake. my friends wouldn't touch it, fearing of Tetanus.
  16. HAHA! thats hilarious. I wish I had a unicycle, if I did I bet I could do it and if I could do it I would definitely go caching with it!
  17. hello, I was out geocaching yesterday with my friend, and at one point I we went to show me his that he hid. In the area, its all woods and there is an abandoned hospital and across from that is a massive abandoned water tower. So at one point we go to the base, of the tower, well over 700 ft away from his cache and I found that the door was open and we walked in. There was a ladder alll the way to the top. It was very creepy but I climbed to the top for fun and then it hit me... I should hide a cache here! Now the reason im asking is because I don't want the admin to not approve of this, because he's kind of strict in my area, but I see all these caches on urban structures all over the world, way more dangerous than the one that I plan on placing. Now what would I need to do to have this approved? Should I just go and place it and activate it and see what happens? im really not sure. please help.
  18. Be sure it's tough to change the combination. You don't want that to happen. You might want to leave that lock outside for a couple of weeks and test how well it holds up under weather. thats a good idea i didnt think of that
  19. I think I just found a solution to my own question... a Kitchen canister. I read that they are perfect. I think im gonna go to target right now to look at them.
  20. well if thats the case is there anything i can use thats waterproof and will be able to be locked?
  21. was planing on using a lock for the final where you have to figure out the lock combinations and I was just wondering if those ammo boxes would be able to be locked with this lock. http://www.masterlock.com/apps/masterlock/...ntial/homeyard/
  22. This idea sounds reallly cool. about the travling puzzle! I think i wanna do something like that. make a travel bug that states that this cannot leave the state or city, because its part of another cache, but have the travel bug trackable and people have to figure out the bugs name in order to find the page, in order to find where its hidded and on the bug is coords or a key that will solve the mystery and have the cobination number on it! i really want to do that!
  23. haha. I hate staples. that place sucks. plus my maneger was the one who was like "take it!" It gets thrown out, so I dont see the harm in "recycling" lol. but yea, now im kind of reconsidering all this cause if i ever have to replace it, id have to pay for it this time. I just really want a nice giant box that requires a lock. and I really want cool swag in my area, because all of the caches near me don't have cool things in it. I might just get a regular container and get a cheap lock or something then... well see...
  24. -Yes its a waterproof safe and I can even cover it just incase with waterproof material. -Not sure the mechanism is, but since it says waterproof on the box I would assume so -yes there is and its kind of heavy and doubt that anyone would want to lug the thing all the way through the forest I'd be willing to bet that what it means by "waterproof" is that it will open after being blasted by fire department hoses and/or a building fire suppression system. While that sounds encouraging, it's not the same thing as "waterproof" meaning it will survive weeks, months, or years laying out in the elements where water will seep in slowly or where moisture will constantly be on the lock mechanism. Covering the safe may or may not be benefit. The two points of weakness will be the seal and the lock mechanism. If you can do a test run- leave it in the yard for a month- that would be wise. Again, you're worried about rain falling on the safe, but humidity that is always present in the air and any moisture on the ground itself. I'd also keep this in mind: have a plan B for when/if it does rust shut around the combination tumblers and/or the lock. I'd imagine that those things are a real bear to bust open by force alone. EDIT: Consider selling it on Ebay and grabbing some ammo cans if you decide it won't work (before you leave it in the elements for testing.) Ahh yes. Thank you very much. This is what I needed. I didn't think of it like that, and it probably would break after a while because the lock is electronic and after the snowfall of a couple years it probably wont work and the lock mechanism on the inside it 2 giant bolts which would probably get rusted over some time. So now the question is... is there a safe that is strong enough that can last out in the middle of the woods for years resisting snow and ice? and if so where could I get it? Or if there was a way to preserve the safe I already have if I placed it in some other location besides a wooded surrounding, like rocks or a small cave. or maybe even some sort of cover that shields the entire thing. (I'm just brainstorming now)
