  1. I've bumped into Sweepy & Geowife - as I was starting a multicache they had just finished it.


    I bumped into Webby962 as they had just found their 1st cache.


    and apparently Peteseaker passed me recently.....


    --- as to how many others I have past - heaven knows - I don't know what you all look like !! :unsure:

  2. I had a TB go missing from one of my caches a little while ago. When I visited the cache and looked at the log it had been visited by a 'closet cacher'.

    The cache is not one that anyone would stumble over and so they had to have got the co-ords from somewhere or someone. !!

    The TB has still not surfaced and as it was my cache I feel guilty for the owners loss.

  3. Last July I had an idea for a miscro at each of the Cambridge Park & Ride Sites which pointed to a final hidden somewhere near the hub of the system. I applied for permission from the council but was rejected as 7/7 had just occurred and they were worried about strange persons sculking about there sites.


    They suggested leaving it for 9-12 months and retrying.


    In March this year I was just about to retry when up popped caches in the Park & Ride sites. Even the cache names were the same as I had intended with a final near the hub.....


    I was flabbergasted - the only differance was that I was going to use a normal sized cache as the final and this was another micro.


    The owner got into trouble though because he had not got permission and had to move them. _ but I got 5 x FTF's though before he moved them.

  4. I didn't used to worry about caches I had found until reading the log after mine on a cache that reported the cache trashed. :o


    Even though I had carefully re-hidden it (I did report however that the hide was a little exposed), I still felt others reading the log may have thought it was me. :D


    Since then I don't add a watch to a cache but look back for a few weeks to check all is OK.

  5. Well, I took Miss butterfly's advise and attempted to 'post' the postcard (in protective ziplok bag) into one of eight caches I did yesterday..... sadly none of them were big enough to fit the card in.... :D even the so called regular sized ones!! :)


    I'll have to try another time - looking for ammobox described caches me thinks... :D

  6. I completed a FTF on the World Cache - UK and the FTF prize were pre-paid postcards to all my teammates in Germany, Australia, US and Canada. The latter asking for his postcard to be sent by Geomail.


    I have not dropped it off anywhere yet to try the system but was thinking of starting it off this weekend.


    Does anyone know if I have to use a Geopost cache or can I just drop it into any cache and treat it like a TB ?



  7. I take it that the 'No food items' rule applies to pet food as well. ?


    I did a series 8 of new caches recently where the owner (obviously a dog lover) had placed packets of dog treats in most of the caches.

    A cacher with a dog opened one of the packets and removed a few treats and left the rest. Surely that now puts the cache at risk from the local wildlife. :rolleyes:

  8. I am personally against plastic bags for all the mentioned reasons and would love to remove them but....


    yesterday I did a series of caches by the same person and all the caches were in plastic bags. Fortunetly they were all brand new caches but I think the main reason that they were in plastic bags was because the containers were not what you would call watertight. A couple of them looked like the sort of containers you get in supermarkets for salad !!


    So removing the bags would expose the caches to the elements.


    ... catch22 :D:D

  9. You know you addicted when....


    .... you raid every drawer in the house looking for possible swops... :D


    .... every car journey is punctuated with " ther a cache over there... there behind that etc. :D


    ... the only POI's on your TomTom are caches and trig points :D


    .... you search around a remote wood muttering to yourself, in the drizzle for over an hour looking for a plastic box you know is here somewhere... :o

  10. I try and swap at every cache I visit and occasionally a useful item turns up which I keep and use. These are few and far between though. :lol:


    Most of the time its mainly kiddy type items which I just swap and rotate with other caches. :)
