  1. Caches are out there that require rock-climbing.... but I have not happened to find one yet. Can someone point me in the right direction, please? I'd like to place a cache at the top of a climb myself, but need to see how others have written the description. (and before anyone points it out, I might not have placed this post in the right category.... but I figured: what the heck? you'll forgive me, right?) ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

  3. That is a good guess. *sigh* .... "What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?" ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  4. The truth is, VERY MANY people are now into geocaching. This is a great thing, with several consequences. One is that you can't please all of the people all of the time. Some think knives are very much a no-no. Others consider knives one heck of a good booty. Some geocachers go with their dogs. Others consider dog biscuits bad since they attract unwanted animals to the cache. Etc etc etc. We have grown to be a large community and a bit of understanding and leniency may be in order all around. Now, as far as actual TRASH, well of course, nobody wants an empty beer can in their cache! I do think about the inadvertent geocacher, though: the one who is out in that area for whatever reason, finds the cache, and did not come prepared to trade. Maybe all they had in their wallet that they could part with was that used concert ticket? At least they didn't plunder the cache entirely? (Or, maybe I should just take off my rose-colored glasses?) Maybe I should just go to bed! It's 11pm here and it'll be Monday soon..... ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

  6. Funny you should mention this, snifter: I went to the mall today and found the actual brick-and-mortar Tupperware store. I bought a dark blue, good-sized, round one for - are you ready for this price? - for a mere US$3.99! What a steal! I think they discontinued that color or something. The lady who was there wanted to know what I would be using it for, and well, I told her the truth: geocaching. She needed a full explanation, as you might guess. Well, then of course, this conversation led to the possibility that she will be hosting a Tupperware party at my house, and I plan to invite several men over for it. Should be a blast! ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

  8. I dunno what number to put up here, but just please remember that a company won't be reimbursing any of us if we go to THIS conference. it'd have to be cheaper than your usual "official" work-type conference..... At the risk of being too early to give a number, here I go: say, $100 or even much less. ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  9. I'd be open to team cache-ing on a weekday, too. Or a weekend, for that matter! "flex time" is a wonderful thing. Anyone interested, in this general vicinity? Email me, as I am not always able to check this forum. ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

  11. Have a wonderful time in that corner of the world! (I'm from the Philippines.) And try to taste some durian fruit while you're there. It smells nasty, but it TASTES really yummy! ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  12. It's called Twin Tin Tin and you'll have to look it up, since it has not yet been approved, so I'd rather not post the URL just yet. (I have every confidence that it will get approved, though!) SO, caches ARE popping up all over. Several were placed within 10 miles of my house over the last month alone! EDIT: 3/24/02 It was approved! here is th link to Twin Tin Tin ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious. [This message was edited by MissJenn on March 24, 2002 at 06:56 PM.]

  14. perhaps it is a sign that we need to create more caches around here that fit this description! Hmmmm... easier said than done, though The other option is to look at so-called LOCATIONLESS CACHES .... see this thread for cool ideas that you can do from anywhere. ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

    An event cache in this area would be cool! (although I am a tad north, in Reading) ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  16. really? did ya use it for garden fertilizer or what? ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  17. I don't have a funny log to share, but you can bet that in a little while, I'll be posting really wacky, funny ones in log books from near and far! This is a great alternative to the rather trite and somewhat scripted logs that I have been writing thus far. You know how that one goes: took this, left this, weather report. blah.... ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

  19. ok, here is the travel bug (link) that I will be releasing soon. I am going to attach an extra laminated explanation on it, as some folks here have suggested. Wish me luck! ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious. [This message was edited by MissJenn on March 23, 2002 at 07:13 PM.]

  21. Team JackQuest is the most prolific (so far) in the Reading area. The first cache I ever found was one of their's and it was quite a nice walk and in good condition. I'd like to see more caches placed, in general, in my area. I just placed my own first one today! Wahoo! It is not yet approved, but when it is, you can look it up: Twin Tin Tin ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  22. Cool! I finally got the code right! Thanks for the help! ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  23. I have the [ img ] in my PROFILE and I also used to have the line about "fools" ( i just now took it off. though). Do i have to type it into the actual body of the post each time? I hope not. ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  24. This has now caught on, whether you wanted it to, or not. ----- Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
