  1. Do you find that the PB jars stay dry? I've only found two as caches, but they have both been very wet. (however, i've found wet lock and locks too)
  2. It's not the cold I'm worried about... it's sticking my hand in holes where there are likely to be prickles.
  3. I really need new gloves for caching. What kid of gloves do you like best?
  4. ditto, if anyone knows, please share?
  5. I just thought it was funny as I have fought with Reviewers in my area when I submitted a cache one time that was 3 feet to close to another and mine was denied, and there was no discussion.....end of story. I can practically see the other cache from the new one that was published. SS as far as I know, we have not yet perfected the robotic reviewer lol. Kidding This really goes to show that reviewers are all individuals, with different views on the flexibility of the guidelines. I've known some reviewers to be tougher than others.
  6. My understanding was that there are a few caches placed before the .1 mile recommendation, although I haven't looked to see how old those caches are. Also another possibility is that a cache was moved a few hundred feet after publication. Moving a cache doesn't put it back in the review pool.
  7. I don't know what your reading, but nothing here that I have seen has been as vulgar as 4chan. not nearly as vulgar, but the same inhospitable, sarcastic vibe. The language is different, but the attitude is similar.
  8. In my locality, I haven't been able to find an amo can for under $25.99 However this has to to with the fact that I live in a city which is generally more expensive than everywhere else, so take that with a small grain of salt. I generally beg, borrow and steal supplies, so it's hard for me to get a figure for what caches actually cost. I just picked up 3 lock and locks for $5 at a wal-mart upisland, should have got more, but didn't want to take up too much trunk space in the car during the road trip. Log books come from the dollar store, where I got 2 for $1. Swag will come out of my moms house. We have just downsized her to a condo, and I have a storage locker full of trinkets that I think would be fun to find. I haven't thought of any camo yet, because I haven't decided on a location yet, but in the past I've used recycled and reclaimed materials for camo with success.
  9. Have you been to 4chan? Some of it's boards are not safe for work, but I think if you would check it out it would explain a lot. Some of the questionable responses I have seen here remind me very much of the culture on that forum. Take it as you will. Being more specific to the issue, I find that it's only one or two people who are repeatedly out of line. Should we project that on to everyone?
  10. I had a cache in one of those containers, but someone got the liner caught in the seal and the whole thing was done for but seriously, that's a cool article, thanks for sharing!
  11. Agreed. But do you think it may have something to do with the use of cell phones as GPSr's or Google Maps or Google Earth? I heard that it's easier to find a cache with a smart phone than it is to place accurate coordinates with one. Is that true? smart phone caching isn't "new" in technology land. I can find caches ok with my smartphone, but I've never hidden a cache with one, so I don't really know.
  12. I haven't noticed this, but then again, if the co-ords are going to be off, you're more likely to notice it on a newer cache because on an older cache they probably would have been corrected.
  13. This is a hypothetical... I know geocachers all over the world. If I find a tb that wants to go somewhere specific, and I know a cacher near that area, as a tb owner would you feel comfortable having someone mail your tb to another cacher? Obviously the answers would be different depending on the owner, and if the situation where I might want to mail a tb ever arose I would contact the owner and ask for their blessing first. Just curious how you would respond to such a proposal?
  14. I miss JC penny. As far as I know there aren't any in Canada. Things were cheaper in the states. The only place that has sales on lock n' locks is Wal-mart, the mere sight of the parking lot gives me nosebleeds, I can't stand the layout of that place...
  15. Some people's caches aren't to everyones taste. Lots of people on the forums don't like LPCs but yet, people place LPC's, so there must be some out there that enjoy them. Some people learn by doing. Making mistakes is a way to learn. Logging tb's is complicated for some, and it's not because they are being lazy, or cruel, it's because they don't understand. Maybe a friendly email about the tb you took that wasn't logged would be helpful.
  16. I am worried that the day I forget to check my blind spot, is the day I cut off a fellow cacher...
  17. why is your gps in your car and not in your hand while searching for a cache?
  18. On average, how much do you spend on a new cache placement? Including, container, camo, logbook, starter swag and whatever else.
  19. can you give us any more information on what type it was, and where it was listed?
  20. most people would! I actually didn't realize I would have to use it in the real world so much when I first started geocaching. If I had known people would come to know my by this name I would have chosen something...cooler.
  21. When meeting other geocachers, do you first introduce yourself by your geocaching username, or by your given birth name? I always say, "hi, I'm dorqie." and most people recognize that as they've seen it in a log somewhere. My bf doesn't like to use his username in real life, and when meeting geocachers he's often met with blank stares. What do you introduce yourself by when you meet another geocacher?
  22. I swear that wasn't my dog...
  23. Here we go again. Same arguement over and over and over and over. But it's too easy to pass up. Not really. I figure tozimbique will be by soon enough to straighten him out. Who is tozimbique? In response to the OP 1) How do you know they didn't come back later and find it? 2) How do you know they didn't find it? I know a lot of cachers who when they find a nano on bench don't bother to sign the log. After all we all know what a pain it is to get the scroll out and that it is even harder to put it back. And since there isn't much room most people don't even sign their whole name. I generally write TOZ in nano caches so you couldn't tell if it was me or tozimbique anyhow. Sure a cache owner could delete your log, but most people who are hiding P&G type nanos aren't checking logs and may not even care if the log is signed. I suppose a 2 year old could report to the cache owner what they saw and why they think the online log is bogus. Not that the cache owner has to do anything about it. Ya, who is this tozimbique guy? Anyway, you are correct that the CO has to do anything. I would tell the CO so that s/he could do something if s/he wanted to. However, I don't think this is a P&G cache. Did you check out the cache page that was posted by A & J Tooling? Looks like a lovely walk through the park cache. It was a beautiful spot for a cache. The CO is an active one in the community. I won't bother her with it though. People being inconsiderate while finding caches isn't her issue to deal with.
  24. I have walked away from caches that appeared to be unintentionally hidden on private property. It can be hard to tell though, as since caches are supposed to be placed with permission, *theoretically* a cacher can assume that the CO has permission from the land manager to place the cache there. More experienced cachers know that this is seldom the case for such hides, but misunderstandings are bound to happen.
