  1. Two geocachers arrived after you all left the restaurant. They tried to do the Earthcache GC1AV6D (No. 73). They said there was a homeless camp of half dozen or so men. Maureen (Rose Red)
  2. Interpretive Center (GC3Y76W) - "You will need to bring WATER about 32oz. for this cache."
  3. A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to state parks and recreation lands managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR). One pass can be transferred between two vehicles.
  4. Next spring I will be geocaching/visiting Savannah. How do I get to Benaventure Cemetery on public transportation from my hotel - B Historic Spot. Is public transportation near the cemetery safe? If I choose to take a Bonaventure Cemetery Walking Tour that would provide transportation to and from my hotel which is the best Bonaventure Cemetery Walking Tour? I love Virtuals and looking forward to finding them at the cemetery plus learning the history of Savannah.
  5. I was not the leader of this Category when I joined. Crusso created the Category and was the leader. I logged in one day to discover that I was the Leader! As for "And why were all these waymarks approved (by you!) then? "Odyssey Posse" would have to have a 6 at the beginning, no?", I simply blew it. Those Waymarks were approved by me in 2009. I do not know why I didn't catch the mistakes. Nor why any one else in the Group didn't catch the mistakes. These Waymarks would never be approved by me now.
  6. re: Where's In A Name? - A Waymarking.com Category You have to use your ENTIRE geocaching name. You cannot drop the first letter or start in the middle. If you have a short name there are suggestions on the Waymark Instructions as to what you can do. If you have a really long name you stop when the coordinates are complete. The rest of the letters in your Geocaching name are not needed. The EXACT numbers from your entire geocaching name have to show on the GPS screen. Close numbers won't do. When I determined my coordinates I drew a line on a map which went from eastern Canada to Bermuda. I contacted a few top Geocachers along that line in Virginia and Pennsylvania. I was able to create three or four Waymarks with the help of a couple Geocachers.
  7. My daughter and I were hunting for the first stage of a multi in the Mt. Hood National Forest around noon on a weekend. We encountered a large smoldering mound covered in canvas strips. We did not find the clue so we walked back to the forest service road. We talked it over and decided that we should report the smoldering mound. I called in the coordinates to the US Forest Service. I had trouble finding someone who understood coordinates. There were numerous phone calls. We continued Geocaching in the area. A woman called about 4:00PM to say they finally located the smoldering mound. They discovered a device in the midst of the mound that would trigger a fire. She thanked us for reporting it.
  8. retiredprof found 521 caches in one day on 05/29/2016.
  9. Hippolyte le cousin Best Day 2716 caches in one day on 02/10/2016 Best Month 3346 caches in February of 2016
  10. I found "Lists" after I posted the query. Formerly it was a drop tab. I went into my upcoming Event and saw that my two Bookmarks were listed so I knew the Bookmarks were still there - somewhere. I started exploring the web site. I never used my Profile before to find the Bookmarks. Seems like every day there are more changes to Groundpeak web site. I just have to figure out how things work - or don't work.
  11. I will be 80 years old in July, MF, caching for 11 years and use IPhone App to Geocache.
  12. Mine are still under "Lists"...Did yours all disappear? I found "Lists" after I posted the query. Formerly it was a drop tab.

  13. Where have all my Bookmarks gone?? ; (

  15. Hopefully I can figure out how to use the new geocache search tool. So far I do not like it - not one little bit! Why should I need to read the six pages of 2.1. Advanced Search FAQ or a set of instructions that may or may not be forthcoming? I did not need to before. It was simple and did everything that I wanted it to do. Signed, a very frustrated PM.
  16. In response to an earlier post we are staying at The Inn at Gig Harbor.
  17. I no longer need to have someone to ride along with (except for the company). I purchased a Garmin nuvi 2555 LMT w/free lifetime maps and traffic. It occasionally leads me astray but you just have to pay attention.
  18. GC2D5EZ Owner Maintenance 02/20/2014 All fixed
  19. Will there be cell phone coverage over the entire Cache Machine area?
  20. Tsunami! at Florence, Oregon (GC1EGC8) was archived. But just north of there is "The Tsunami in Siletz Bay" (GC3E93M). It is definitely an Impact Feature not on Impact Feature list but should be. Maureen (Rose Red)
  21. I have a dark green "GEOCACHING.COM YOU ARE THE SEARCH ENGINE Have GPS Will Travel SERIAL NO. GCA4805" T-Shirt. It is evidently not trackable.
  22. When I was a young girl living in Hood River a cougar wandered into downtown Hood River. A man shot the cougar. He was criticized for killing the cougar but it was near a school. It was just an old cougar looking for food. It was displayed for a long time. Not sure what happened to it. If you visit the man's grave in Hood River Heights cemetery there is a photo on the man's gravemarker of him, his gun and the dead cougar.
