  1. I am so glad I'm not the only one who does that!
  2. Daring to add another translation: Danke, dass Ihr meinen TB mit euch nehmt und weiter auf seine Reise schickt. Ich würde mir sehr wünschen, dass er von hier aus in Richtung Westen geht (Wunschziel ist Irland). Könntet Ihr also bitte den TB in dieser Richtung auf den Weg bringen? Ich würde das sehr zu schätzen wissen. Herzlichen Dank für Eure Hilfe Dennisfauchez
  3. My apologies. I did not realize that creating an account was needed to see all the details to the ad or to respond to it. I am always logged in to both Astromart and here, so it never 'clicked'. If you want to create an account, great. If not, I'm sorry for wasting your time on it.
  4. Let me say right off... I am not selling this personally! While looking for stuff for my telescope, I came across an ad for the Legend. Since I am both an amateur astronomer and geocacher, thought someone might be able to get a good deal. I do not know the seller, so it is your choice to trust. Astromart Classifieds - Misc and Other Astronomy *Hope it's okay to include this on the board, if Groundspeak doesn't want links to other places, I'll remove, no problem.* grrr....need to get new typist that can spell!!
  5. What a great idea!! Wishing your students and 'bugs' the best of luck!
  6. Just saw the video. Fantastic! The TB won't be coming our way, Central Florida, so we just wanted to send our best wishes also! GOOD LUCK!!
  7. Sure, why not? If something so small can bring a smile to someone else, then it's worth it!
  8. Oops.....sorry about that, was trying to incorporate the woods. I used picture that I took when I was in Alberta, Canada a couple of years ago. I know I have some from Grouse Mountain, Emerald Lake, Rogers Pass and more... I'll work on it in the next couple of days when I get a chance.
  9. Hi Uhmmm...I'm honestly not sure what would be needed to make it into a stamp. I've never done that. Glad you like it, wasn't sure about the tote. Looks much better in the bigger image.
  10. Hi, This isn't cartoonish, so, if you don't want to use, that's just fine. I won't be offended. To use, please save to your harddrive and then upload it. I will be deleting from my website in 2 weeks. Here is avatar: And here is original (so that you can see):
  11. Bump Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but you are welcome to use if you wish. Wanted to keep the Canadian/American merger going... I will keep on my site for 2 weeks, that should be plenty of time for you to be able to save it to your system. If you are NOT going to use, please send me a message, that way, I will go ahead and delete. If you don't use......I will not be offended! Original (just so you can see what it is):
  12. Not sure if this is what you are looking, but if you want to use, just save it to your harddrive and upload it. (I sent you an e-mail explaining this also)
  13. Testing avatar Well crud!
  14. I use PSCS and PSP8, if any help is needed and I can do it. *Have to add this disclaimer though: I will not work on copyrighted images without written permission from copyright holder*
  15. Yes, that is a great image to show what it all means. Thanks!
  16. As someone who has now survived 4 Hurricanes.... Andrew, Charley, Frances and Jeanne ...and new to Geocaching, how would I go about helping out. I moved to Central Florida after Hurricane Andrew crumbled my home in Homestead, then got hit with 3 in a row. I'm new to caching as I said, so not good at finding caches to check, but is there stuff to be donated, new containers to put together? Anyone doing anything in Highlands County area?
  17. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for giving this link! I'm not interested in the boxes though. What I found that is of major importance to my family is the disaster kits. After having just lived through 3 Hurricanes, and being a relocated Hurricane Andrew survivor, these kits are now on list to give as Christmas presents. So...again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
  18. I'll agree that you should get permission, just because it's not property owned by you. As for placing one in a cemetary. At first I thought...NO. But then I started thinking about it. There are cemetaries located everywhere that have walking routes. Meaning, that a lot of people take their evening/morning walks throughout the cemetaries. I know of one in particular in Washington, NC that is absolutely beautiful, we walked every night. There is even a swingset set up off to the side for kids. I think if you find a cemetary that allows walkers, then why not ask about geocaching. As others have said though, be respectful about where you locate it. And if there is procession going on at the time, come back another time to allow families privacy, if cemetary is small. So, after thinking, my answer is yes.
  19. The best advice is to learn how to use your GPSr and how your particular model behaves. Go to an open field, mark a known object as a waypoint, move a couple hundred yards away, then let your GPSr take you to it. Do this several times. Watching how your GPS acts when you KNOW where the target is, and seeing how it gets you there, will be invaluable experience when you hunt a cache... Sure wish I had seen this before I went out today looking for my first cache! When I read your comment, it was certainly a DUH moment. Thanks for making the lightbulb turn on.
  20. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the great tips and thoughts. As someone who is very new (haven't gone looking yet), these are great! Cannot wait to get started....right after all the flippin' Hurricanes go away.
