  1. I have one in the middle of the Colorado River, but due to the gov it had to be virtual.
  2. I have 2 virtual caches in National Park land. Both require email answers to my questions or their logs will be deleted. The Dead Man's Cache is in Joshua Tree National Park and the Tale of Two Signs cache is on the Colorado River on the Lake Mead National rec area. I've had nothing but positive logs for these caches!

  8. I grabbed a TB in Pasadena, CA that wanted to reach England before the owners traveled there. The cachers who picked the TB out of the cache I'd placed him in because they were headed to Europe, and this jump over the sea is nesesary to the completion of the goal. I'd like to think that we expedited the goal of Jack the British Bug.

  10. Isn't this situation the reason cache owners have the delete log option?

  12. I've spent a lot of time on the island as my father was a good friend of Doc Stanton who owned the island. I've been going there since '66 by plane or boat(Navy used to give us a ride over with supplies for the ranch). I now go over on my 20 ft power boat sometimes with my brother on his Catalina sailboat. The Nature Conservancy that now ownes most of the island will not allow geocaching so I had planned to make virtual caches there. Since your going over before I will consider a virtual cache. Peter

  14. How do I resize photos down to the 100 kb limit when they show up as 200 kb to 300 kb after dowload from digital camera? I knew my poor PC skills was going to come back and bite me.
  15. I'ts about time we geocachers get some positive press. Please make some VHS tape copy's when it airs, I'll gladly pay for tape and shipping. I might get to see it if I'm in Laughlin at the time, but I'll probably be on my boat[TV onboard but no reception in the deep canyons were I like to be]. See yah on the tube. Peter

  17. Good idea which I think is inevitable. As this sport grows the people who play are going to want to meet each other for all kinds of reasons. It's going to take organization by people/geocachers who are good at that stuff. I'm not but I'll sure be at the designated coordinates at the right time!

  19. Your right, never assume, but when I replace my vandalized cache it will contain just the coordinates to the real cache not far away. At least I'll find out if they just stumbled on it our if they have GPS unit
  20. My cache was stolen and I intend to replace it in a more secure location and under more rocks! The worst part was lossing the T BUG as It's no use to the vandals. The original coordinates will be a small tuperware with instuctions"coordinates" that lead to the larger more secure cache for T BUGS and other goodies not far away.
  21. My travel bug "SURF BUGGY" was stolen along with the whole cache. I'm just glag that nobody else had a traveler in my cache that could have traveled thousands of miles only to disappear at the hands of vandals. I'm going to have to make caches that take TB'S more secure. I know this is a different situation from your's but any abuse of TB'S annoys me!
  22. I had to rethink the placement of a cache to an easier location as I had gotten stuck hard in the sand trying for the original location I'd picked out. Thanks to several 4 wheel drive vehicles my bones aren't bleaching in the desert, and my pickup stripped bare. Since I didn't want anyone else to go thru that nightmare I choose a less dangerous cache location, and I'm sure some will say it was too easy to find.

    NPS

    I noticed that several caches on NPS land were removed by the Park Service citing Title 36, Section 2.22; Leaving property unattended for a period longer than 24 hours is a violation. Now I don't want to make the NPS my enemy as we are neighbors, but could the law be circumvented by checking the cache daily? I'ts probably not practical so virtual caching on NPS land may be the only solution.
  25. I hope ideas like this are dealt with quickly as they could inpact how others view GEOCACHERS
