  1. They seemed so educated and proud of themselves...I didn't have the heart to tell them their answers were wrong.
  2. I got this as an answer to one of my EarthCaches.

    Does anyone know when WestCan2 is going to be published? WestCan1 was the most fun that I ever had and to say that I'm excited to spend a week on Vancouver Island next summer would be a bit of an understatement!!
  4. I have, I guess. I've visted ECs in 15 States and 2 Canadian Provinces.
  5. I understand that a person shouldn't be placing physical caches a great distance from their home coordinates (can't effective maintain), but what about Events? Is there a rule (written or unwritten) about how far away a person can host a caching Event from their home coordinates? Thanks!!
  6. It is funny that you mention that virt. It is on the agenda. I like the concept and I love virtual 's
  7. I'm going to be visiting Alberta in July to attend the BAD Event, and besides Alberta's two oldest caches, are there any "must do" caches in the Edmonton area? I love Challenge Caches, wherigos, EarthCaches, and Chirps. Thanks for the help!!
  8. Oooops, I just noticed your posting. I bet the Sunday that your were mentioning was this last Sunday, right? I was going to say that I'd like to do a little Rochester caching this Sunday (March 6th). A day late and a dollar short...that's the story of my life.
  9. EarthCaches Rock - The Third Times a Charm. GC2C2FB http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...03-bcb8b76255ae This was the third annual EarthCaching Event that I've hosted. This year's edition was held SW of Spirit Lake Iowa. We didn't have a huge turnout (basically because there aren't many cahers in this region). But we had fun. After a little 101 class, I escorted the attendees to my nearby EarthCache so they could apply whet they've learned. It was alot of fun.
  10. I received a geocoin as a prize at an Event, but I can't find the activation code for it anywhere. It looks like a $100 bill.It is metallic and measures maybe 3" X 6". Help?!
  11. What is this EarthCache Master thing you guys are talking about?
  12. I just e-mailed the "journalist" who wrote this article and asked if she'd like to accompany me on my caching adventure in Iowa this weekend. Think I'll get a response?
  13. I've developed quite a few caches that will probably last 110,000 years....they are my EarthCaches!!
  14. I live in SE Minnesota (near Winona). If you are ever over this way...I'll go caching with you.
  15. I have enjoyed, oh so much, all the pointless rhetoric and bickering in this thread this week, that I did something funny after work this afternoon. I visited a special cache up by Altoona,WI: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...5e-b95eb368bf24 I really am ashamed of myself! p.s. Gotta love those shiney 50 cals, eh?

    ISQ Finds

    You can put me down for 19. 18 Indiana and 1 Minnesota.
  17. Depending upon the weather (I live in SE Minnesota), I'm planning on going to Illinois to pick up the 5 EarthCaches near Peoria/Bloomington that I've yet to visit, then pad my #'s a little on the huge cache concentration in that fine part of the country.
  18. If your cache had a little geochecker html integrated into it's write up, I'd make a visit the next time I'm in the Fox Valley.
  19. I guess I'm not a member of that clique, eh Bart. Where's my Minnesota Silver box?
  20. I've got the lower two thirds of Indiana left before I finish their Delorme..looks as though I need to make a slight incursion into Kentucky. Kentucky is truely an EarthCacher's paradise!
  21. You should have made this an EarthCache...then I might have went after it!
  22. Has anyone created a Golden Earthcache for you yet, Lagrac? Oh oh... only 333 Earthcaches to date. You'd better get busy! As a matter of fact...yes they have: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...ca-ae1cb5d9371c I see there is a new EC in the Cities....looks like it is time for another Twin Cities run.
  23. It may seem that way on the surface, but at least around here, it is more about honoring friendships and recognizing dedication to the hobby. I don't see it as a Bad Thing. Now, if we were putting out Golden Film Cannister caches... well, you know. I agree, it isn't a numbers thing. In my 'Grand Tribute" write ups, I always ask peole to write something about their favourite cache or a time they've cache with the GRAND cacher. It is meant to recognize the person...not the number of smileys.
  24. I'm proud to have introduced the Silver Ammo Box to Iowa: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...20-7bc2717e5a4b http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...6e-70ad0830ad8f http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...4e-6810554672d1 http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...df-7d17e1355655 the tradition has seemed to catch on...my friends but a Gold one out for me: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...a2-8f666eb24168 and to top that, since everyone knows I'm so partial to EarthCaches, I got this: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...ca-ae1cb5d9371c It was an honour!!
