  1. Yeah....that's why I lean to CDs. And with a sealed container, tampering is evident.
  2. Revolting is a strong feeling for a minor thing. However, in the past, I used CDs. No biggie. As for not making it? I've already done this successfully, and don't have a negative outlook on it. Thanks for the input though.
  3. While a valid idea and certainly a usable idea for someone else, in my opinion, it takes away from the, I don't know, magic?, from the travel. Worked last time. Should work this time.
  4. Thanks for the input, but having done the race before, those are non-issues. Near school doesn't necessarily mean right next to it, which would be acceptable anyway per rules as long as it is not on grounds. The last time we ran it, the cache itself was a mile away on my end and about a mile on their end. very safe. As for flash drives and CDs, teachers shouldn't have trouble trusting teachers, and most anti-virus software is pretty good these days. Keep on'a cachin', T-Bone
  5. I know this is technically an education topic, but more importantly it is a caching topic. Hopefully it won't be moved as the ed forum gets little use. I'm looking for an East Coast cacher/7th or 8th grade middle school teacher to race TB's across the country between your home and Lebanon, OR. The idea is to place a cache on or near the school grounds with a small lock box TB with a flash drive/cd, etc. of student research of their hometown, a video perhaps, as well as items unique to our areas, and send it off with the goal of crossing the country and landing in our School Cache. As it moves and people log its movement you would track it on a billboard map! Research and write about places it visits. Communicate with members, etc. Lots of lesson potential, and I am more than willing to absorb others ideas. Send mail or PM if you are interested. This will be our second race...lost the last one . As a matter of fact it was a few years behind theirs. You can see how that went HERE and HERE. We should get organized for next school year pretty soon. Give me a shout!

  6. You might check out what we did HERE back in '05 if you are still interested. Keep u[p the great work!

  9. I just read three logs from different cachers in different caches that I am planning to hit in Oregon this weekend. The commonality they share is that they are stating if you take a TB you should leave a TB. Since when did this become the accepted thought. I have always understood that TB were meant to be moved freely about the nation....cache to cache....sea to glorious sea....within the goal given of course. Must have been snoozing when everyone decided this one. T-Bone

  11. I have a collector's item Remington Nylon 66 .22 rifle I want to trade for a GPSMAP 60 or Vista Cx. Any takers in Oregon's Willamette Valley? Eric

  14. Sheesh....Lep....chill out. You would turn the guy in?? What a schmuck. I could understand if he was trying to make a buck by stealing the data to sell, but to share with cachers (even if it is inefficient) is a little, well, schmucky! [] And Kwitzats.....I wouldn't use your CD either for virus concerns, but if I did...pics of awesome cache views, videos, urls, are all fun. Just avoid copyrighted material.
  15. Ah, I was just kidding. It's not the first repeat topic, nor will it be the last. Let's see, I'm sure I could come up with something clever. You know you're addicted if...uhm.... Ok, I still got nothing. You know your addicted to the forums if you Markwell the newbies!
  16. It's official...I'm an idiot. I was in Mozilla at the time. Just used IE....COOL!
  17. Huh?? Tried it...nothing happened except all was selected.
  18. Seems ya might be a bit sensitve yer self with all the complaining ya seem to do. Lighten up :-)
  19. 112.) Terrain rated 4.5 in Tennessee is a 2.5 in Oregon.....unless it's summer in Tennessee. Then the humidity jacks that bad boy to a respectable 4.5.
  20. Yay! I've been markwelled! Hokiemary! Keep on posting! It's no big deal when people point out other posts. Maybe they were just letting you in on a post you might like.
  21. If you mention that there are many wonderful things about caching, both large and small; some killjoy will tell you how he or she hates micros and lamp posts and how the ammo can is the only way to go. Hehehe.....I hate micros! But couldn't agree more! BTW.....Bump
  22. My class created a TB as part of a cooperative project between two schools. It is currently in this cache in Oklahoma. Its mission is to travel from Oregon to Leominster, MA. The contents of the package are of a timely manner (the end of school in May 2006), but it would be nice to visit as many states as possible on my journey. Students from these schools will be monitoring the movements closely! Please help us out and get him going again....Eastward. You can reference the TB here. Thanks for your help! Mr. Tuck and Gervais Middle School students. p.s. I posted to Great Plains as well.
