  1. Great Idea! I've seen quite a few people mention in the forums that they've left a personalized card of one sort or another but it would be great to actually see a standardized template with a glossy pic on the front and stats/info etc on the back. Along the same lines one could also immortalize a special or unique cache with it's own card...much the same way sport cards not only show players but have team photos/trophy winners etc. A most excellent idea!...Count me in:) ----------------------------------------------------------- "Whad'ya mean you didn't save the location of the truck?..EEEK!!!..."

  3. Honestly I don't think that pic is a fraud. As one who goofs around alot making spoof pics to amuse friends I can spot a "pasted" pic...... The camera is simply focused towards a distant point. Seems like the flash might of lit up his hand a tad......As for the camera date, hell my digital constantly defaults to '98 due to a broken/loose battery hatch........Nope... This pic's real. ----------------------------------------------------------- "Whad'ya mean you didn't save the location of the truck?..EEEK!!!..."
  4. quote:Originally posted by ponyboy93: Of course then I'd try to figure out how to make my own.... The log is actually very easy to make ponyboy. It just a PVC tube covered in expanding foam insulation. I can't take credit for the idea as someone (ugggh I forget who..) originally posted the idea for a phony tree stump. I DO find that grinding down the surface flat as well as dusting with some chalk pastels aids in bringing out an added realism.

  6. I just love "artsy-fartsy" caches Some of you might have seen these pics in previous threads but I couldn't resist contributing again. I'm currently working on a phony-rock cache. My old stand-by scheme: Here's my cola cache: And finally my phony log cache: A bandwidth hog?! Who me?!?!?! nawwwww Never! ----------------------------------------------------------- "Whad'ya mean you didn't save the location of the truck?..EEEK!!!..."

  11. Very ironic. A local cacher around here recently planted a cache with a micro-cassette recorder he picked up at a garage sale for a couple of bucks : http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=23068 Great idea ----------------------------------------------------------- "Whad'ya mean you didn't save the location of the truck?..EEEK!!!..."

  17. Hi Jeff, Yes, I too tend to get funny readings under certain conditions be it a rock face, heavy coniferous forests (Especially in the rain) or in ravines. Whenever I've encountered this situation I've always backed up into a clearer view of of the sky, obtained a bearing to the cache then pulled out my compass and shot a sightline......A few times this has led me to a find where I'd otherwise of failed. Now I generally use the compass regardless on the last 20-30m to a cache as walking slowly always seems to induce the dreaded here/there/everywhere pointer syndrome. lol ----------------------------------------------------------- "Whad'ya mean you didn't save the location of the truck?..EEEK!!!..."
  18. Thanks binthair! Hope you start playing alot of golf or else I'll NEVER catch up to you! LOL quote:Originally posted by DxChallenged: What's the best in Canada after # 100? Dx LOL well for me the best woulda been the homemade swill I brew here in the basement but seeing as I've been negligent lately with my brewmeister duties I settled for a Budweiser lol quote:Originally posted by MajBach: Indeed! Congrads. I had no idea you were that old. You don't look a day ov'r fifty. MajBach LOL! Well I only look fifty on the outside.......My innards are actually more like 130! hehe ----------------------------------------------------------- "Whad'ya mean you didn't save the location of the truck?..EEEK!!!..."
  19. Hi you two I think that's a GREAT idea. Not sure about the date though as I think I'm already booked for that weekend. Maybe the following one?...Might spread it out a bit further from Malak's as well. But it certainly would be fun to camp out in Frontenac. For those who haven't been there it's an awesome place! Also close to Kingston so those folks could attend too:) Which cluster of campsites were you eyeballing anyway?....The ones closest to the "secret parking spot"? lol Also how much is an overnight permit? Ok I'm getting excited now ))))) ----------------------------------------------------------- "Whad'ya mean you didn't save the location of the truck?..EEEK!!!..."
