  1. Would minting a geocoin about CF be allowed? If so, you could donate all profits to CF. Do you belong to a local geocaching group? If so, you could spread the word about your event through them. It wouldn't be an "official" geocaching event, but if you're having an event and you happen to have geocachers attend, you'd still get the same effect. And, in order to be a successful fundraiser, I doubt you'd want to limit it to just geocachers anyway.
  2. I was thinking of fictional works, but non-fiction could also be included. I don't want cities themselves included, unless it's a small town. Let's face it, New York and Los Angeles are in a multitude of books, and I don't think I'd get the same feeling seeing a NY sign listed as I would seeing the ice cream shop from "The Way the Crow Flies" listed. Now if it were a NY deli that was mentioned in a literary work, that would be something to include.
  3. As far as I know, there's no distance limit since you're not really looking for something hidden. If you're on a Waymarking page (as opposed to a cache page), you'll see a photo of the church ahead of time anyway, so nothing to really "find" - just something that might be of interest to folks.
  4. I've never seen a real totem pole either, and I know next to nothing about our Indian mounds. That's why I want the category. It'll educate me AND give me some great things to look for while on vacations.
  5. David - There have been previous posts about this. It seems as though it's okay for something to be listed under more than 1 category, so list away!
  6. I haven't seen this one proposed yet. Literary Sites would be any place that's crucial to a certain literary work, but not necessarily the city the story was based in. "The Streetcar Named Desire" - you could waymark the actual streetcar. If there's a particular diner mentioned in a book, it could be waymarked. If there's a particular house, museum, park, etc. that's the backdrop for a literary work, it would qualify. What do y'all think?
  7. Thanks for remembering that we don't have counties in Louisiana!
  8. No, no casinos. I'd like to see authentic totem poles, museums on reservations, etc. No real commercial endeavors, but educational things (such as reenactment areas) would be okay.
  9. There are haunted sites all over the world, so let’s get them set up on Waymarking. To qualify for the category, the listing would have to tell us the legend of the haunting.
  10. This could be anything related to Native Americans. Indian mounds, museums, sites where reenactments occur, etc. To qualify, though, a little information about the Native American tribe would have to be listed.
  11. This would be any church 150 or more years old. To qualify the current building would have to be 150 years old, not some church rebuilt over an old site. If the building was formerly a church but is now used as something else, a home perhaps, it would also qualify, as long as it’s at least 150 years old.
  12. There are 2 of them not far from my house. I'd gladly give them to you!
  13. Two thumbs up! I learn more about history from statues and monuments than I ever did in a classroom.
  14. I like this idea! Some of this stuff really makes me scratch my head, squint my eyes, and wonder if it's really art or some junk that someone didn't want to haul away. It'll be fun to look for it intentionally.
  15. Oh, I like this category! I have 3 within 10 minutes of my house and many more just a short distance away.
  16. I know there are a lot of college students volunteering in the New Orleans and Mississippi Gulf Coast areas instead of taking their traditional holiday breaks. If anyone happens to be in the New Orleans area on April 15th (the day before Easter), we're having a special CITO event helping to clean hurricane debris from the streets of New Orleans and we'd love for you to join us! Visit the cache page for details: Springtime for CITO in New Orleans (Please don't move to the CITO board; I'm trying to catch volunteers who may be headed this way. Thanks!)
  17. By the way, please don't move this to the CITO board. I'm trying to reach anyone who may be coming this way. Thank you!

  19. I was able to access the site this morning, but I've been trying to get back on since lunchtime and it's not working.
  20. Here in southeast Louisiana we're having "Springtime for CITO in New Orleans" on April 15th (can't make the 22nd). We'll be helping to clean hurricane debris from the streets of New Orleans. Since many of you will be having your CITO events the following week, we invite you to come down and join us! Springtime for CITO in New Orleans
  21. I got a DNF on a new cache, but the cacher was my brother who was somewhat new at the time. I actually laughed because he couldn't find it. A few days later there was a DNF from probably the most seasoned veteran in this area. When we saw that this cacher couldn't find our "muggle-proof" cache, we rushed right out to check on it. Sure enough, the entire cache was missing.
