  1. (unless they were from two different listing services and hidden in the same spot)
  2. Likewise. I see two gold badges and five bronze badges.
  3. Translation: My profile page appears triple I made an update of my caches with the GSAK macro findstatgen3 from my profile page and I see my badge 3 times and then remember what error Sounds like you have duplicated some of the HTML. Just clean it all out and start over.
  4. By the way where did " power " come from ? To add a little discouragement they could be called " diarrhea " trails....lots of movement in a short period of time. "Power" seems to put a positive spin on it. Agreed. I prefer to call it "endurance caching" but unfortunately, the term "power caching" has pretty much stuck.
  5. Yes, I have also problems. The vieuwer no longer works and the icon turns red. The vieuwer redownload also fails, you get an error page. I hope Groundspeak solves the problem quickly Same here. Working now! Just by itself, or did you do something to get it working?
  6. If it were a vote, I would vote a resounding NO! about the copy page option. Let's not make it that much easier to hide power trails and series, thank you.
  7. No, you are wrong. It was a cache submitted and rejected on Garmin's site because of the glass container issue. I was one of the peer reviewers there that rejected it in 2010. My, how time flies!
  8. Thanks sailor, I owe you one. (Sailor is the CO) Haha! Yeah, I noticed that possible double meaning as well.
  9. Can you see any cache listing that been deny by a reviewer? When running a search or using certain mapping tools, Reviewers and Lackeys can see all unpublished listings (archived or not) and all published listings that were later archived. That's why, whenever someone posts in the forums to say "I found a cache that isn't listed anywhere," a reviewer is often able to help by answering "that is the final of an archived multicache" or "that cache was not published because it was too close to the one you were actually searching for when you found it." So... how do we resolve this (or do we)? A cache on another listing site, perhaps? I seriously, SERIOUSLY doubt that. Yeah, it *could* happen... in a million years, maybe.
  10. Over $300? Wow! Guess what I'm gonna find in a stump tomorrow? Heading down to my workshop right now. Keep your eye on eBay!!
  11. I've seen a couple of them over the years... literally. They should work if you put them in a fairly sheltered area, pretty much out of the weather. The ones that I found still smelled like the old contents, but I don't know if they had been treated like you are doing.
  12. In fact, your logged a note on that cache pointing to the forum thread: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=212699
  13. Oh.... THAT cache?!? In Belize? There is an old thread here somewhere about that. A vacation cache left in the care of a resort owner who died, and somebody that went down there with a throwdown to give to the new resort owner, or something like that. Glad it was finally put out of its misery.
  14. That has been brought up here many, many times over the years, in one form or another. I seriously doubt it will ever happen, at least based on the responses in this forum. Groundspeak has really shown no apparent interest in anything like that, either. And to be fair, there are some notable exceptions where 'cachers with very few (or no) finds have hidden some great geocaches.
  15. Stinging nettles could also cause harm to children. It isn't ridiculous to mention them. It isn't ridiculous to mention berries, if you think they could be an issue. It isn't ridiculous to make your best judgment call on when to use the attribute. It is ridiculous to tell other people it is ridiculous to use an attribute for the very thing it is meant to be used for. Stinging nettles are simply a very temporary irritant, not a poison, and they cause less harm than a mosquito bite. Learn what Jewelweed is and you will have an almost instant antidote that frequently grows nearby. Hm, I must have a bad reaction to nettles, then. It's definitely much worse than a mosquito bite. I swell up quite a bit and it's very painful for a fair amount of time. I suppose your system could have a more severe reaction to them, I don't enjoy running into them (unless I'm looking for some to eat) but if and when I do make contact with them, there is usually Jewelweed nearby (at least here in the midwest) and the juices from the stems are very much like aloe vera and are very soothing to the itch (not so sure I buy into the "cure for poison ivy" lore that often goes with jewelweed, though) From Steve Brill's site: http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/Plants.Folder/Nettle.html Nettles sting you because the hairs are filled with formic acid, histamine, acetylcholine, serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine), plus unknown compounds.

  17. Happened to me just this spring: http://coord.info/GLHBM99J
  18. In glass jars? Shame on you, BC! The oldest active multi-cache in Ontario (Canada) (Hidden June 2nd 2001 and still going) has always been a mason jar. Interesting factoid. I wouldn't doubt it. Ripley made a living out of unusual things like that. Still doesn't make glass containers a good idea.
  19. Yeah, I am beginning to feel the same way, too. What I find funny is that you seem to try very hard to sound proper and educated yet you put anyone who dares disagree with you on ignore, choosing to dismiss their comments instead of responding to them. I have people in this forum that I vehemently disagree with on a regular basis and I have ignored exactly no one. For someone who's as educated as open-minded you'd like to portray yourself, you sure do hate being challenged, don't you? Quote of the day. There is a difference between disagree and attack. I find that many of the posters here become too negative and suspicious of what I see as honest questions. It results with the original poster feeling that he needs to defend himself and has the affect of not wanting to ask any more questions. Other forums I converse in are not so controversial. It makes for a much more pleasant experience. +100 Moderators, please make this a "sticky"!
  20. In glass jars? Shame on you, BC! If it wasn't for what appears to be spray paint, I would point out that it was not uncommon for folks in the depression days to hide money in mason jars out in the back yard. One favorite place for treasure hunters is beneath old fence posts.
  21. Yep. One Weekend Wonders were a problem back when I started, which was before iPhones or Android phones. Sure, we had them back then. But nowhere near as many as when it cost most of us $300 or more to get started. There were those that already owned or had access to a GPSr for other reasons such as hunting that gave it a try for a short time, but today you have so many that have grown weary of playing Angry Birds and decide instead to try a new game called Geocaching for a while until they get tired of it.
  22. I'm idly curious as to how you arrive at that conclusion.
