  1. WOW, ok ... i don't know HOW i did that, i checked ALL of my saved waypoints from my trips to the cache area and i just can't seem to figure out where those coordinates came from. Of course, my having dyscalculia, it's no surprise i bungled the numbers. Note to self: let wife handle typing in coordinates from now on.

  2. i'm not sure how far, i just know the coordinates listed were incorrect. i have the original coordinates and the correct ones ... how do i figure out how far off i am?


    Sorry for all the confusion, this was our first cache and ... HOO BOY ... what a learning experience! Our second cache went off without a hitch.

  3. I have never deleted a log on any of my caches, but if you want justification for doing so on your cache, you need to go no further than the guidelines:


    Cache Maintenance

    The cache owner will assume all responsibility of their cache listings. The responsibility of your listing includes quality control of posts to the cache page. Delete any logs that appear to be bogus, counterfeit, off topic, or not within the stated requirements.


    VERY succinctly put.


    My goodness! I think you have completely misunderstood my response! It came on the heels of someone suggesting that you shouldn't have a say in this thread because you currently don't have a caches showing as hidden. I think that is outrageous! I was defending the value of your opinion on here! How in the world did you get that I was looking down my nose at you? Not at all! I was doing just the opposite! Good luck with your new caches! :laughing:




    Oh my! :laughing:


    i read, and RE-READ your reply before posting my response the other day, and somehow i missed your intended message. i am SO sorry! For some reason, i misread your reply and understood that you too thought i should not have replied since it appeared i do not have any hides.


    A thousand apologies for misunderstanding you! After the rude reply in which someone edited my reply, i guess i was a bit muddled. :laughing:


    Again, sorry and thanks for the email you sent! :laughing:

  5. Rude is suggesting ANYONE needs to be smacked. Rude is NOT telling someone that THEIR cache is in need of maintenance. Immature is reacting like this jerk did.


    THIS is why i'm glad Geocaching is a solo sport.


    THIS is why i hate people.


    You did the right thing, Seeker. Ignore the troll.

  6. i would delete any logs who don't correspond with a signed log sheet or a photo to prove they found it in my caches, if I had hidden any, which I haven't. To visit a cache without any proof is not playing the game.

    Fixed it for ya. :blink:


    i have three caches which are in review.




    Even if you hadn't hidden any, it seems like you've found enough to have an idea of what a good hide entails. Best of luck with your cache reviews ;)


    My exact line of thinking. Hiding a cache after 10 or 20 finds would have ensured lame hides by my part.

  7. i would delete any logs who don't correspond with a signed log sheet or a photo to prove they found it. To visit a cache without any proof is not playing the game.


    Thank you. And you don't have to have hidden any caches to know the difference between right from wrong.


    Yes, i DO have caches hidden and are in review. I, for one, decided to have at least 100 finds before hiding any caches to avoid making any rookie mistakes.


    Thanks for not looking down your nose at me. Oh, wait ... too late.

  8. It is quite disappointing to run across such caches, and i tend to ignore them. i have two caches out for review right now (my first two) and i have typed in a nice description and even came up with custom "logos" for each of them.


    My motto, if it looks like not much care went into it, it goes into my "ignore" list.

  9. I'm totally new and so far my bag of stuff to leave includes:

    • A magnetic clip.
    • A half-used bottle of glitter nail polish.
    • Two rose-scented tea lights.
    • A Mario Bros. 1-Up/Green Mushroom iron-on patch.

    I'm looking into simple signature items like wooden nickles. And I also like the idea of taking items (no matter how simple or useless) because I tend to be very sentimental. Not like a hoarder, but probably moreso than most, haha. But I only plan on taking one trinket/object from each cache and leaving one of my own every time I do.


    You may not want to leave the tea lights as the heat may cause them to melt. I also avoid anything with a scent as not to attract critters.


    My son would LOVE to find that Mario patch, though! :)

  10. Unfortunately, as the sport grows in popularity, the more clueless and inconsiderate join our ranks. This is why i have little desire to purchase trackables. Groundspeak has succeeded in advertising our sport to the general public, and now we're seeing the result of it.

  11. This is a particular pet peeve of mine. One local cache is hidden in a cross on a roadside ... you don't know it until you've gotten there and searched ... and lo and behold, there are 3 or 4 photos of cachers kneeling next to the damned thing. THINK people!


    OK, i feel better now that's off my chest! heh
