  1. Please put me on the standby list as well. Thank you!
  2. On my second day of caching, a few years ago, hunting for my second find, I ran into a guy named "Nozzletime". He mentioned something of "Smudge" waiting in the truck. 1): I had no idea who that was and what he was talking about 2): I got the idea that you might have to pick numbers to get to a cache. In the mean time I know better, on 1 and 2.
  3. Please keep me in mind too. If the date fits, I would love to be in. Thanks.
  4. I saw that TOMTEC keeps this cache in his bookmarks list of "Canoe caches". Maybe he knows more. Kayaking out there would interest me too. However, judging from the Google map, one way seems to be at least 25K. At bit much for a one day return trip.
  5. Because of rising gas prices geocaching is becoming a more and more expensive hobby/sport/game. The following "chain letter" type scheme of how to fight gas prizes was sent to me today as an e-mail and I would like to open it up for discussion. Here it goes: JUST DO IT ok ! ! ! THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' GAS FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET GAS BACK DOWN TO $.90 PER Litre....hopefully This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of his engineer buddies who retired from Hallibur ton. If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to read this PLEASE. Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea. This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy gas on a certain day' campaign that was going around last April or May! It's worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!! I hear we are going to hit close to $ 2.00 a litreby next summer and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down? We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't continue to 'hurt' ourselves by refusing to buy gas. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT, whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can Really work. Please read on and join with us! By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.00 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $ 1.26 for regular unleaded in my town . Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a litre of gas is CHEAP at $1.14, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace...not sellers . With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action. The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves. How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas. But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all a ct together to force a price war. Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies, ESSO and Shell. If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit. But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Esso and Shell gas buyers. It's really simple to do! Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!! I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us s end it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) .. and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers . If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!! Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all! (If you d on't understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am . so trust me on this one. How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all in.I suggest that we not buy from Esso and Shell UNTIL 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!! I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you! Acting together we can make a difference. If this makes sense to you, please pass this message o THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO BELOW THE $1.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

    Lost Wedding Rings

    I lost not my wedding ring but a gold ring with my families coat of arms on it while caching in Switzerland near the place I was born and raised. Here is my original log for the cache "Bremer" December 17, 2005 by lib (712 found) Visiting from Canada, this was one of the caches I absolutely had to find. Many many years ago I spent afternoons in this area with my grandpa and there was no chance I would miss a cache hidden on my old stomping grounds. Thank you for bringing up old memories. Took TB Land Rover Left Pewter Dog If any cacher by chance finds my golden ring, I would be very grateful to get it back. I think I lost it in the area while cleaning my hands with snow.
  7. Thank you for the invitation Storm Shadow, I will keep it in mind.
  8. Have you ever wondered what would happen to you, if you would get injured on a remote trail while caching alone? Not that I am really afraid of that, otherwise I would stop caching, but the thought has crossed my mind. Or did you ever look for a micro and wished you had a second pair of eyes to help you search? Or did you ever drive through a busy neighborhood and wished you had a navigator to keep an eye on the GPS? I am looking for a few cachers that are interested to go hunting in a group once in a while. Lets say once a month. The territory could be from Godrich to Cambridge, from Listowel to London. The idea is not to found a new club or organization, but to have some fun with fellow cachers. Applications are accepted! Anyone interested please post in the topic or contact me directly.
  9. I did not know Tony personally. But I knew his name from reading logs in caches all over Ontario. Only last week we exchanged a few e-mails over a cache of mine. Because a number was washed out (my mistake), he was not able to find the final of a multi. It was not his mistake and he had done the bulk of the work, therefore I offered him to log it as a find. He politely refused and answered, he would finish the cache when next time in the area. A true cacher with honour! My thoughts are with his family and I wish a speedy recovery to his wife Sue.
