  1. i have a travel bug that is either missing in action or sitting gathering dust in this cache GC276KJ if someone has the time and inclination could they swing by and either verify that it is still there or perhaps move it to another cache that will keep my little pirate moving - cheers Waiau

  2. i really dislike people who dont take care when opening my caches in the rain. like a poster above mentioned if water gets in then it will never dry out. the containers may be water proof and keep moisture out but it also keeps it in. i did one recently that had black mould in the container and on the log book

  3. well thats hardly a helpfull answer. these kids have certain expectations about the sport as we all do. unfortunately they have twice now been stuffed up by people who didnt play by the rules. but dont let this discourage you from continuing with the sport stinkerbell. i would guess better than 98% of the people who do caching are honest people who have some degree of respect for things. perhaps it might be best to draw a line under these events and have another crack at it. try and get your geocoin down my way thats sure to collect a few miles or kilometres in my case lol

  4. this one took us three goes to find due to the bloody trees blocking signal and the fact that the boot had been camo painted then placed under some ferns. from memory the boot itself had been filled with expanding foam and then hollowed out from the heel inwards. very cool and rates as one of my favourites. just ignore the grinning goon.





  5. A whole family of Geocachers here in West Auckland we started at the weekend and love it,


    Using the Iphone software


    how is everything going with the Iphone stuff ? i know very little about the Iphone in general. i am still using a cheap little nokia phone i bought about 7 or 8 years ago.


    Most of the NZ cachers tend to hang out in the onshore 'local' forums at NZ GPS Society and Kiwicaching



    I'm brand new too. The last link you used no-one has replied to a post for over a month. The first site is for general GPS stuff but is at least more active. Maybe kiwi's can't talk as well as fly? (shamed to say considering all the 'views' each post gets).


    hey kiwiowl, good to see another new cacher. i do think that this forum is sadly neglected because it is often the first stop that many new cachers myself included make. one of those web sites as you pointed out is in my opinion also poorly supported and the other one while it is regular posted in it seems to be the same 5 or 6 people trying their best to keep it moving.

    maybe it is just me and not knowing quiet what to expect but i was hoping for a more vibrant community of people willing to promote this new sport to the max.
