  1. I suggest Kendallville. The fairgrounds are big enough with camping and meeting areas. They've got a lot of caches nearby. Convenient to I-69 and not far from the Toll Road.


    ... and I've always liked that town. Good people up there.


    Torry Make sure to send your ideas on a possible venue to Trippy I think their E-Mail is info@midwestgeobash.org. They're looking for venues in central Indiana.


    EDIT: Darnit I always jump the gun and post before I've ready the whole thread...

  2. I personally have 2 YJTBs in my possession. Since both of their goals were to meet more geocachers I decided to take them to the Midwest Geobash to exchange with someone who may not have had the chance to see or log one of these guys. I don't think they should be kidnaped kept. Just because the contest is over doesn't mean that other geocachers wouldn't have a fun time finding one of these TBs in a cache. I mean Zygote you obviously liked finding these TBs in a cache why not share that enjoyment with other cachers by letting them travel more. By keeping one of these Jeep TBs forever just seems really selfesh to me. Just my $0.02

  3. Mapsource downloads maps BY county. How is that different from what you're looking for?


    Is that in the newer version Bret? my old mapsourse does the entire state of Indiana in about 2 maps. I know we got more counties than that :laughing: It would be nice to be able to chop my maps down to county.

  4. For satirical humor to work, there must be an element of truth in it. Note Torry's caption for the picture above, where he makes fun of the fact that Patrick pees on stuff every ten seconds when in the woods.

    Non sensical name-calling accompanied by a smiley usually doesn't work and can be offensive to thin-skinned dogs.. Ba-dump-bum. :laughing:


    Try a caption for this one:




    I wish I had opposable thumbs!

  5. I was wondering if it were possible or if people thought it would be useful to see how many times a cache has been found? I think it's be nice to see how "popular" the cache is or how "difficult" it is. Any comments/questions?

  6. You don't even have to be a person. Some dogs have their own accounts. I'm assuming that they may need a little help in actually typing in the log entry though :cry: .


    If dogs can write puzzle caches, shouldn't they at least be able to sign the logs themselves? Geesh! Some lazy dogs... :cry:

    You could always ask them to make their mark..... however some may not want the logbook soaked that way. :cry:

  7. Must have been quite a few that needed to catch up I saw a little more time than normal on a new PQs time to get to my inbox. Not a complaint just an observation. :lol: Thanks for all of your hard work Jeremy, Raine, and anyone else behind the scenes :P

  8. try putting in "Indiana" as the from or to search or in the keywords search you should see several routes I've made as tests. From my understanding with the from and to search it geocodes the address or state or city/state and searches for routes begining or ending within a specified range of the coords the geocode returned. so if you search for places people havn't made routes to or from yet you won't get any results. Let me know if that helped :lol:

  9. No dice on my Razr V3 i get "Page cannot be displayed". Now I'll go off and sulk cause this is a really cool feature.


    I actually got this to work on my V3, if anyone is having problems try clearing your cache, history, and cookies. and make sure the first URL you load when you start the browser is the wap.geocaching.com that's what works for me now :anicute:

  10. Guys - I'm noticing that some folks are making 2+ day trip routes in pocket queries. Don't do this. Keep them down to day trips. Seattle to California may technically be a day trip but you know what I'm getting at.


    That's what I did. I created a PQ along a route from Raleigh, NC to Dallas, TX. It never did come back and not only that it has disappeared from my MyQueries list. I hope it didn't cause any trouble on the server. The other PQ I created was from Raleigh to Jacksonville, FL for an upcoming trip and it can back beautifully. Thanks for all of your work on this most welcome addition to the site


    I just ran a quick Google maps direction list and if that's the route you used the distance is about 1,192 mi from my experiance this is WAY too long 500mi is about the max you can go on this before the query times out. Try breaking it down into 2 or 3 legs and see what happens.
