  1. quote:Originally posted by JaimeeG: quote:Originally posted by Fallen:TOG is actually one of my favorite caches and I wish people would get off their lazy ***s and get it! The page shows the cache as being temporarily disabled. Does that mean it's missing? Perfect example of why I don't do puzzle caches. Jaimee "What a fine thing it is to have an intellect, and room enough in the seat of your breeches to hold it." TOG has never gone missing. What happens is that it ends up moving from it's intended position due to mother nature or other issues. Since I haven't checked on it in a while I want to disable it so that people can get the full effect. It's been found in it's alternate position and but never missing. Since the cache is in a such a remote place, it takes an extra effort to get it. It's never gone missing though. george Wanna go for a ride?
  2. quote:Originally posted by Divine: quote:Originally posted by Jomarac5:1. Have you run into anything like this, or an area where it is obviously a sicko hangout? I have once run into something like that, but I didn't recognize any 'sickos' there.- I'd wager that the guys themselves recognize that they are sickos. That's why if you bring a camera and start taking their pictures they usually turn tail and run. If their behavior is so un-sicko (to coin a new term) why are they so ashamed? I'm not talking about pictures of them buggering in the bushes, but pictures of them in their cars waiting for the next random partner. "Hello, my name is Bruce. I have sex with random strangers in parks and then throw my used condoms (if I use one) in the tall grass for anyone to find. I'm to ashamed of my actions to actually get a hotel room or bring thse people to my home but I'm not a sicko. Next." Where does the debauchery actaully cross the line to sicko for you? These guys are borderline bugchasers if not actuall bugchasers to be so thoughtless. These are public areas. Now another cache has to be pulled. Get a room. Nuf said. george Wanna go for a ride?
  3. So, if we good enough at this, can we go pro, get sponsors and do adds in magazines. Instead of "Fishing with Rowland Martin", it could be "Geocaching with BruceS". I think OLN would pick it up. An add in Backpacker magazine. "Hi, my name is George and when I geocache I use the Cachefinder 3000. Wouldn't be caught in the woods without it." Imagine the possibilites. george Wanna go for a ride?
  4. quote:Originally posted by seneca:You may not be guilty of “Gay Bashing”, but from your first two posts on this thread it certainly seems to me that your attitude towards the incident would have been significantly different if it were a man and woman that you came across in the “throws of passion”. I doubt that you would have described their albeit inappropriate behavior as “disgusting, ghastly and frightening” It it ghastly and freightening. Crusing spots are ghastly and freightening, gay men gather to meet other gay men for annoymous sex. There is a difference between a couple diving into the bushes for a quickly and strangers gathering for bush buggering. And this is generally gay male behavior and it ruins parks. I don't think I've heard of a public park anywhere where heterosexuals gather for annoymous sex. That's kept in the singles bars and cheap hotels where you're not going to come hiking along and stumble across it. The crusing park activity is at such a base level that the people involved are not invested enough as to get a room. It's like two dogs going at it, they don't care who stumbles across them. That's what makes it ghastly and frightening, it's a sub level of human activity that deserves to be shuned. george Wanna go for a ride?
  5. quote:Originally posted by enfanta: quote: and in the throws of passion (if that's what you'd call it). Actually, it's "throes." What appears to be coming at you is coming from you. Well, doesn't that depend... maybe it was like midget tossing. george Wanna go for a ride?
  6. I like the option of a multi cache where you get the final coordinates off from the info on one of the headstones. george Wanna go for a ride?
  7. quote:Originally posted by Wandering Palms:I can generate print that small with the computer but not with a dull pencil in the woods. Like runaround said, who's putting micros in the woods that are so small you can't fit a log book or a sheet of paper where you can legibily write your name? Leave the pencil at home and bring a nice pen. george Wanna go for a ride?
  8. quote:Originally posted by Team GPSaxophone: So, http://www.geocities.com/friared1/ultramic.html? Took sun from sky, left world in eternal darkness http://mywebpages.comcast.net/ihazeltine/bandbass.gif if it's big enough to put a code word in it, it's big enough to put a log for at least one name. The owner will just have to change the log sheet more often. george Wanna go for a ride?
  9. Put a log book in the container. I've heard time and time again how there is NO WAY they cold fit a log in thier super small container so they only way to do it is with a code word. I've heard this about: film cannisters alotids tins (big and small) lysterine strip holders (and other brands) small hide a key rocks And you know what? I've signed logs multiple containers of each type. Quit being so lazy and make a log for the container. george Wanna go for a ride?
  10. If you hold an event cache it's open to anyone who can find the coordinates. Just as if you had any traditional cache. If they show up, they can log the find. Odds are they won't show up but you can't exclude them. george Wanna go for a ride?
  11. Over 100 is common, but i've found some 3-400 miles away. Without flying or leaving my state. george Wanna go for a ride?
  12. I've driven across the lower deck of the bay bridge and maintained a lock during the whole crossing... Well, I did loose it going through the tunnel. george Wanna go for a ride?
  13. Caches in SF that I really liked http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=38323 http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=12491 http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=12494 There was also a DNF at a huge cross at the top of a hill but I can't find the cache page. george Wanna go for a ride?
  14. How do themed caches preserve 'value'. There is nothing making a person stick to a theme. If you come to a cache full of pez dispensers, there is nothing preventing a cacher from taking a pez dispenser and leaveing a key chain. What could you do about it and how would you even know unless you checked the cache every day. As for TNLN hurting geocaching, lets go back to the 5 cacher example. So a cache is full of junk. 5 cachers come by and TNLN and are met with a cache full of junk. Well, if they're like me, they rarely pay attention to the contents so they could careless. I don't rember what was in caches, even in the early days when I traded. But I can just about tell you where every cache I found was located and how it was hidden. That I remember. All 1000 of them. My favorite item I've ever traded for was one loaded die. I have no idea which cache I got it from and it's my favorite thing. But ask me how "Crows Loop" was hidden..... I still remember. george Wanna go for a ride?
  15. Nah, zombo.com still rules. But the viking kittens are really funny too. george Wanna go for a ride?
  16. quote:Originally posted by BloenCustoms: So, leave what you feel like, and be prepared to find junk. http://angelfire.com/pro/bloen/images/eyes.GIF "The way eye" And if you can accept that, you'll never have a cache hunt ruined or leave disapointed. And when you do find a cache stocked with nice surprizes. It'll be a bonus. Frosting on the cake. george Wanna go for a ride?
  17. quote:Originally posted by Jomarac5:Perhaps with some good ideas generated through discussion in these forums we can find a solution that will influence fairer trading. To say that this is impossible just doesn't make sense to me. ***** Someone should have discussed this earlier. There are so many new ideas being brought up here. Just imagine what the caches would be filled with if these ideas were just brought to our attention a couple years ago. It's like copernicus saying everything orbits around the sun..... things will be different now. I look forward to geoaching in the new era. george Wanna go for a ride?

  19. Weekends are really slow, but you have to figure everyone is logging all their weekend finds (and dnf's). george Wanna go for a ride?

  21. quote:Originally posted by Egnix:For those wondering about the status on the stats... It's probably going to be Monday before I get to get the stats updater working again. I've very sorry for the long outage. My backup plan didn't work.... I'm sitting here knowing that I've fallen quite a few places but I still want to see the stats to make it "official". Now I need to add some bugs to my watch list as they get closer and closer to home. george Wanna go for a ride?
  22. quote:Originally posted by BrianSnat: I've seen them as low as $59 and I'm sure you can find one cheaper if you look. Instead of a scanner.... I bought my daughter (10 yr old) a cheap digital camera from walmart for about that price. USB connection too. If it's just for locationless verification I think the cheap digital would be the way to go. This is the one http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.gsp?product_id=1811798&cat=4468&type=1&dept=3944&path=0%3A3944%3A3946%3A3959%3A4468 george Wanna go for a ride?
  23. This was brought to my attention by Sqirrel Nut. From this log http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cachelog_details.asp?ID=219516&L=1309416 george Wanna go for a ride?
  24. quote:Originally posted by Pantalaimon: but the guy is holding the device down at waist level, face up, just like I hold mine when I'm waiting for a signal. My cell phone, I think I hold head level... faced towards my face. I've seen the trailer but didn't notcie that bit. But when I hold my gps looking for a signal, I hold it way over my head with screen facing down and me looking up. I don't want my body blocking any faint signal. I just assume I won't have a cell signal so I don't bother bringing it anymore. george Wanna go for a ride?
  25. My guess would be somewhere in Nevada for the lower 48. george Wanna go for a ride?
