  1. So bring the toddler. I have a 17-month old, and work 3 days a week. Most of my caching takes place on Thursdays and Fridays, when Mr evilrooster is at work. I tend to take evilroostr jr in a backpack, but many 1-star caches could be done with your toddler in a stroller. Call it an adventure and bring a box of raisins and you can take a toddler practically anywhere. Then when s/he gets bigger, you'll have an enthusiastic companion and partner in caching. Your husband will be the one to feel left out - he may even start asking to come along. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  2. Surely we deserve the courtesy of a reply, even "it's on the list to do" or "not in my lifetime, Britcachers"? evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  3. In Scotland, mountains over 3000' are known as Munros, and many hillwalkers go "Munro bagging", climbing as many of them as possible. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  4. Well, if none of the Dutch cachers will say it, let me. Welcome to geocaching! If you frequent the forums, you'll find that a lot of the "general" posts are America- and Canada-centred. There are a lot of us in Europe as well...I am sometimes surprised Contenental Europe doesn't have its own room. Europe vs America generally doesn't make much of a difference, but sometimes the rules they get obsessed about are completely irrelevant to us. The important thing is to enjoy caching! evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  5. quote:Originally posted by Geo Badger:It names and shames Paedohiles, so it cant happen again! I know for one that I dont want to stumble upon a body in any woods whilst caching! It is the most worty charity going at the minute. Run by the Sun paper. Dan Wilson (Team Dan and Pid) Oh, God, then I vote NO. That sort of thing leads to lynch mobs trashing the homes of innocent people who look like, or share names with, people on the list. It also leads to the erosion of the idea that people are innocent until proven guilty, since most of the lists advocated include people accused as well as convicted. Worst of all, many experts say that such campaigns cause people who are genuine threats to the community to "go underground" and vanish, so that the police (with whom they're supposed to register if they're on the Sex Offenders Register) can't find them. So in addition to the damage they do to innocent people, these campaigns may actually make the problem worse. Would be better to give the money to a society that actually works to protect children, like the NSPCC. I don't want to start a flame war here - we all share the same goal, to make sure that no more children vanish like those poor little girls. But naming and shaming is not the best way to do that. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-

  7. Fun until someone walks straight to the center of the field, eyes on their GPS... evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  8. Don't hunt them. I'd love tagless bugs. I'm not keen on jumping through all the hoops I'd have to to get a bug from the US, or paying the local merchant's profit margin on top of Jeremy's, to get a traditional bug. So a bug that I can order over the internet for the same price anywhere in the world sounds great. A the moment, I have an idea for a bug, but I'm not releasing it. The choice is not between a small amount of money for the site and a larger amount of money - it's about any money verses none. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  9. Is it something we said? evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  10. I've been binding books as long as I've been caching. Since I use small leatherbound blank books (about 1 1/2"x1"x1/2" to try out new techniques, I have to get rid of the darned things or I'd be drowning in little blank books. Each book I bind, including the mini-tomes, has an evilrooster stamp in it (like my avatar, but in red). The only disadvantage is that some cachers seem to think they're too valuable to trade! Can't do them in micros, though, so I just leave earrings. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  11. Added my question - before even reading your suggestion that we do so. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  12. ...including me. Jeremy, are you even reading this? evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  13. I've looked into sending out a travel bug, but purchasing is pretty intimidating if you're not in the US. The prices on the UK supplier look high to me (and there's no discount on multiple bugs), and ordering from the US seems cumbersome. I'd LOVE tagless bugs! Not as a replacement to the tagged kind, but as a suppliment. Maybe have a sheet with the barcode bug emblem to laminate and attach? Then the emblem becomes the visual cue that "this is a travel bug" rather than the dog tag. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  14. Hey, not all of us drive...not a requirement, but if you're setting an urban cache, public transport information can be dead handy. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-

  16. quote:Originally posted by thrillseeker69: quote:Originally posted by bigredmed The comments about apathy are right. We need to stop tolerating this as tolerance of self-destructive behavior is not a good thing. Its called Enabling. It violates the only rule worth following (the golden rule). AIDS, syphilis, and other STDs are increasingly common in the gay community because of these type of activities that the larger society (and more shamefully, the larger gay community) refuses to do anything about it for fear of seeming "insensitive". By appointment to the Court of HRM Queen Mikki I. Right on! Not to mention they want to lead the Scouts, adopt kids, and teach them in our classrooms, and somehow try and tell us they are not recruiting them. Now, they are politicaly attacking our religious Freedoms, any religion that doesnt condone this behaivior could become a "hate group" if this type of legislation is passed. Hello? I thought we were talking about having sex in parks, not about whether any subset of society was living a righteous life by whatever definition we choose to enforce upon them. It's none of our business as geocachers what gays, or straights, or anyone else, does when we aren't going to stumble on it with our kids. Please take your other opinions to a thread where they're relevant, if you can find one on this site. But since it's a site about geocaching, don't hold your breath. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  17. I checked on the online forums before I posted a series of seven virtuals, six with the coordinates online, the seventh derived from things you find at the first six. Admittedly, unlike your idea, it is designed to do in one day. I was told unequivocally that it should be a single multi, and posted Up the Close and Down the Stair as such. Now that there's no limit to the amount of text you can put in the cache description, I think they're trying to get people to stack these things into one cache rather than spreading them into many. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-

  21. Listening to it now. Good info, well phrased, good questions to elucidate the facts. Thanks to dylanhayes for doing the interview.

  23. ...or the centre line, over here. If you're the driver, just keep near the middle of the road and the rest of the car will end up on the correct side of the road. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
  24. 1. Obtain a t bug, with number and all that 2. Copy the number down onto a card, along with info about Travel Bug Football. Get the card laminated and attach it to a football keychain or some such. 3. Keep the tag at home. Then if it vanishes, there's no t bug tag floating about. You still have the number so if the bug goes walkies you can put another laminated card into circulation. evilrooster -the email of the species is deadlier than the mail-
