  1. Has nobody placed a cache in the last few days or...?


    Not that I'm complaing, gives me a chance to play ketchup!



    I have to wait for Thursday - it's Australia Day! :)


    Gonna do my bit to bring a little bit of the "old country" to El Cajon.

  2. There's a Geo Event further north tomorrow




    I have a Tb in the Pennsylvania Geocahcers race. There are 8 pages of travel bugs at this event, but only 13 for the race. :rolleyes:


    Anyone local know any of the people attending....I figure the further lead I can get whilst still in California, the more space I have for it to get whittled down the closer they get towards Pennsylvania.

  3. The family that caches together...


    Ladies and Gentleman, would you please be upstanding for the newest San Diego geocacher.....Tiffette#2.




    So Murphy and I are putting our geoswag on this morning when Tiff's second daughter comes out.


    Can I go geocaching with you?  I'd like to learn how to place caches too.  May I also have my own account?


    Whipped out the second Garmin Rhino before she could change her mind and bundled her out the door. Hit the Santee area today where she scored her first unassisted find. Was at home tonight showing her how to log when she wrote something I didn't understand.


    On Belay


    "Ahh honey, what's IRBT."


    "I Rock Big Time." ;)

  4. Hmmm, I live on the west coast, almost at the most SW point of mainland USA. Rather then send my TB by mail tp PA, to have it sent back here, maybe I should volunteer to release all the TB's to start the race? There are a lot of cachers in San Diego and most of them would go after these bugs and get them moving.


    My offer is there should you wish to pick it up.

  5. The HD has been pulled, it's in limbo at the moment.

    The only storyboard for the new project was on that HD. The boss suggested that a company that can recover the data, but it's at a cost.


    After getting mucked up the tune of $7000 on immigration, the HD is down the list at the moment until I financially recover.

  6. Here is the score:


    37 boxes missing.

    5 items damaged (so far)

    My score:


    I departed Australia Feb 11.

    My property departed Australia April 24th.

    My property arrived San Diego August 30.


    Three days before arrival the US consignor calls to say that they already have a list of misisng boxes.


    Property arrives.

    Missing: 7 out of 61 packing boxes.

    Damaged: PC HD (that really hurt) 3 other boxes damaged.


    Insurance notified September 3 with invoices and repair costs.

    Insurance finalised Dec 16th.


    Go figure.

  7. Not sure I understand the question.


    I deliberately go after caches that have TB's or geocoins in them. Someitmes I'm sucessful, sometimes I'm not.


    As for having my own personal Geocoin, I would probably pay for costing of about US$100 on my own and then over that I'd be looking for purchases.

  8. Frequent visitor to NZ from AU there a few spots he should see.


    Auckland Harbour - without a doubt.

    Wings over Wanaka festival - only every 4 years though.

    South West Cape - one of the 5 great sailing benchmarks :laughing: of the ocean yachtsman.

  9. Thank you Chuy - she called me at work to say she read the forum, then checked the link reverifiying that it was indeed the thread she read.


    I suspect she's up to somethign else involving Xmas though....a mysterious entry has appeared on her Visa Card that I'm not allowed to ask anything about.

  10. Intrusion request:


    Tiff is nagging me about a either a virtual or a reverse cache where you have to log a site used in a Hollywood movie. Did about a 20 minute search and DNF on locating the name of it. Anyone have it?


    Thanks in advance.

  11. Hmmm, ok my fellow Queenslanders and other members of the land down under.

    I'm trying to set up a USA - AU stargate portal for TB operating through Brisbane into San Diego.


    In the interim, those of you who wanna put some miles up feel free to email me for a mailing address.

  12. Back in Australia I did a stint in the University observatory whilst the Professor was away at a conference. My speciality was radio astronomy.


    You p;anning on subdividing the category or just include all observatories?


    Off the top of my head, I can think of about a dozen "real" telescopic observatories, some public, a couple of military and some public - and not just some guy with a scope in his back yard. Although one guy who lived near me had a decent scope, wrote a novice book and I think has discovered a comet.


    I'd support the category, but think you may need a little more definition in order to exclude Joe Citizen who has a Walmart $39 special.
