  1. I'd buy that. My SUV does not have a tire on the back (still a good idea though).
  2. I think 6 in one day is the most I've done. Mostly because I have arthritis in my knees and ankles so I am completely wiped out after that many and hurt for a couple of days after(unless they are just park and grabs). Also, I mostly cache with my wife and she isn't as into it as me.
  3. Are you sure that you didn't mean moderator? Too funny. If I was a moderator you would ALL be banned!
  4. I've had him log a cache of mine that way. I emailed him asking what "." meant since the cache he did it on was a decent one that gets good logs. off topic, you have found a cache of mine!
  5. Sorry, but I don't do "oh, how boring." My question had to do with the breathless lionization of those who undertake this trail. My impression is that the numbers cachers will fall all over themselves clapping each other on the back with each new World Record. The rest of us don't care. If you want to do something impressive, go set a "World Record" the old fashioned way...finding random caches by setting up a route...not having the route set up for you with stop and go caches every 529 feet. Well put sir.
  6. I have 5 or 6 in my garage and they must be tough since no one has logged any of them yet. Gimme the coordinates to your garage. my 666th post. I must be Satanic.
  7. I agree... Keystone is an excellent dude.. maybe not "the dude" but a good fella. He even thanked me once for reporting myself... ( no more drunk typing) I appreciate a person who does his job well and he certainly does. And goes above and beyond.
  8. I have a fully stocked ammo can in the back of my SUV. It's been there for about a year. When I find a place it will be placed. The right place for the right cache...
  9. Where I live we have a thing called the underwear affair. It's a thing where people go for a run in their underwear to raise money for cancer below the belt (prostate, ovarian, testicular etc...). The thing is, this run is started at the University of Alberta. Yes... lots of very pleasant looking young women from the ages of 18 - 40 running around my neighborhood in their skivvies. Some very exposed. This year I forgot about it when I went to the store to wash my truck. I just exited the carwash when I saw all these umm.. mostly female young and nubile scantily dressed people running by. It was a very hot day temperature and otherwise.
  10. Where do you suggest a hider put that information? Just because someone doesn't bother to read the listing doesn't mean they shouldn't be reading them. Agreed. Even back when I started caching, the hard-core cachers ignored the cache page. They bragged about (pre-paperless days for most of us) to only write down the D&T ratings. As if that somehow made them better cachers. Hey, sometimes there is some important information in those cache page writeups! There's nothing macho about refusing to read the cache page. And then there are those who complain about a poorly written cache page with little or not enough information. I have yet to hunt for a cache that I have not read the cache page. Admittedly, I have very few finds but I don't plan on changing my strategy any time soon.
  11. I guess I don't understand why people are all atwitter over this. I take at least several thousand steps every day; I write several thousand words every day. Why is signing your name over 700 times in a day so worthy of comment and approbation? I mean, it's not like finding the caches is a challenge or anything. It requires roughly the same mental agility as walking and chewing gum at the same time. So why all the excitement? Before anybody calls me a hater: I don't have anything against those who find monotony and repetition relaxing; those who do these caches are welcome to do so. It's the breathless admiration that I cannot understand. I think the people that admire these kinds of things are the same people that admire food eating competitors. I mean, I like a hotdog now and then but I have no interest in eating as many as I can in a limited time. It's a freakshow kinda thing.
  12. Where do you suggest a hider put that information? Just because someone doesn't bother to read the listing doesn't mean they shouldn't be reading them. +1
  13. I would stay away from the tupperware container. Try a Pelican case (pricey but good) with maybe a lock and lock for swag inside it? and water proof paper? Sounds like an interesting idea as long as it is well thought out.
  14. The last time a cacher logged a find online for one of my caches (he was the FTF) the second person who found it (a respected local cacher) made note in his online log that it was odd that the log book was blank. I emailed the first guy and he said he was on a numbers run and didn't have time to sign the log book. I asked him what was in the container. He said that he didn't remember. I deleted his log.
  15. Just use a stake with a rounded end and push it into soft ground. No pointy object used. Problem solved. Pushing a stake into the ground does not cause any damage. It simply displaces the soil, not remove it. No digging involved. The guideline in question is "Caches that are buried. If a shovel, trowel or other "pointy" object is used to dig, whether in order to hide or to find the cache, then it is not appropriate." He is not going to "dig" anything to hide it and no one is going to "dig" to find it.
  16. I have played mini-golf in about 7 states and 9 provinces. It's what the wife and I do... The first thing we look for while on vacation is where the nearest mini-golf course is.
  17. That's really where I thought Waymarking was going. I am surprised it hasn't happened. Why are you surprised? Geocaching is Groundspeak's bread and butter. Isn't "bread and butter" about supply and demand?
  18. That is sad... it kinda brings up a little lump in my chest. These are people that wrote the notes. Feelings. I have written a few love notes myself. I would not like for others to read them while I was alive. I would like it less when I am dead. That is unless they understood where I was at that point in my life. I suppose if I wanted my writings to be read by strangers I would have made them public.
  19. I don't think you want to know what most people think. You just want to stir things up as usual. I used to have a girlfriend like you... she needed drama in her life... liked to stir things up... liked to cause trouble when there was none... I got rid of her. No one likes a drama queen. DING DING! You do have the ability to see who started the thread without opening it and ignoring it if it's by a member you've decided is a drama queen. By your responses, it seems you'd rather have drama than discourse. Personally, I'd feel creepy reading someone else's love letters. Those were written for someone else and anytime I've written a love letter, I'd done so under the premise that it wouldn't be read by anyone other than the person I wrote it to. But, if you like the idea, go for it. The caching community at large will give you feedback on whether they like the idea as well. The same applies to you. You do have the ability to see who responded and not reply. I prefer to give people the benefit of the doubt and assume they will post something worth reading. I suppose I could not read anything by anyone I have an issue with. I would offer that you like to respond to me to create more drama.
  20. When the levee breaks? I'll give you a FTGI First to get it. I do use that quote often though... more often than I should methinks..
  21. It isn't coming back. Crying won't help you and praying won't do you no good.
  22. Neato home made stuff. the worst is a business card. Hmmm what if I found a well made home made business card? conundrum...
