  1. Noise is probably a better choice...the canned air horn will make quite a bit. Further, it is able to be administered from a further (safer) distance. NJ law restricts the size of "bear mace" (10% pepper spray is by definition for bears, 5% for dogs - both covered by NJ statutes) that civilians may carry, I would have to research further but I believe the amount covered is something in the area of 1/10 of an ounce (the law is definitely under 1 oz!). The can you describe and the price make me think it may be a problem. The other unfortunate circumstance is having to be in relatively close proximity to apply (usually 15' or less, some claim up to 30'). Remembering how quickly bears can move, mixed with an adrenaline rush making one nervous and jerky, and, environmental concerns (wind) leaves a lot to be desired. If you haven't been pepper sprayed, be thankful. I had to do it twice for instructor certification and recertification...one part of the job I will not miss doing again. :laughing:

  2. After returning from vacation I opted to visit the state park and had an "encounter". What I saw was both strange and informative, having provided an answer to one of life's major mysteries. I am wondering if this bear was the same you encountered...sure would explain his hurry and why he wasn't "concerned" with you on the trail. <_<



  3. Suggest checking out "Anna E. Dickinson (GC3BCA), a virtual named "Yes...a Tempus Fugit (GC9E8B), in the area: "Chester Depot (GCGK7Y)" and for a few minute ride up the road "Ziggy Crew's WebCam (GCMEKB). There are others in the imeediate area I have not had time to do. Enjoy and good caching. Kane

  4. While the "pointy object" rule is listed, I personally find it somewhat vague as to burying or not burying caches. Personally, I don't find the necessity to bury them, it's not needed (just do some of BrianSnat's or other caches in this area. Your situation is, understandably, different. My opinion is also based on a recent 'blurb' on the front of the webpage regarding geocaching's representation (including 'poetic license') on a "Law & Order" episode. The 'blurb' appreciated the fact geocaching was represented on TV but categorically denied "burying" as a method of hiding. You might wish to consult the reviewer directly via e-mail. Good luck. :)

  5. I will order 5-6 or more from the PayPal site when it goes up. Much easier to go through PayPal, excellent idea whoever thought it up.


    My kudos to the coin's designers - you did a great job! Very unique and very NJ.

    Look forward to seeing the real deal.


    PS in just under 2 hours I retire!!!! :):D:D (and I don't mean my vehicle is getting new rubber!) :):D:P

  6. :P


    How about "DOG - GONE!" - "Day(s) of Geocaching - Geocachers of the North East". .....sounds almost religious, don't it!


    for Avro - don't know what is happening yet, but should have some spare time latter July/August. Let me know via e-mail of what needs to be done; should be able to do something!

  7. :P Congratulations Kevin! Many more happy finds...but try to do them without the aid of the surrounding wildlife! Best wishes and good caching.

  8. :P Congratulations on #25...enjoy many more! Your first sentence says it all!

    Best wishes.

  9. Glen Grey is an old Boy Scout camp and is very easily accessed off of Route 202 (Ramapo Valley Road) in Oakland, NJ very near the Mahwah border. This should be a preemo spot to run a geocaching event from. Haven't been up there in years but brings out some great memories...will have to check the calendar.

    Could be called "Labor (Day) of Love - Geocaching".

    Another great idea from Avroair...way to go!

  10. Suggestion: e-mail the cacher and confirm it was in fact 11 pm and not 11 am with a typo. Some people who work shift work or night shift inject the opposite of what the real suffix is. If it is, in fact, a violation, a log entry and/or e-mail would be appropriate along with deleting the entry. I would contact the people from whom permission was obtained, inform them of what happened and what actions you took. Your showing of responsibility by taking action and informing them (rather than not telling them) will show your dedication as well as those who "play by the rules." Good luck and good caching. Kane

    PS I like Planet's idea of the link as well.

  11. Perfect Tommy - black racer


    Team DEMP - copperhead


    Be Carefull All, lots of snakes out there this year! Team Rampant Lion bought Snake Guardz after a close encounter, may not be a bad suggestion for all cachers. There are several brands in either gaiter (not like "alli") or chaps. Gaiters run around $50 a pair. Sure beats meeting Dr. Sean in the Venom ER and being introduced to Crofab!

  12. In the words of a famous man, "Snake? That's NO Snake.......now, this is a Snake!"

    Click here!

    Be thankful you only have to deal with the puny ones!

    (Team Rampant Lion - Probably a good idea you got snake guardz...see what they can stop???)
