  1. Sewing kit: sounds good. Make sure its protected. Be careful with the needle. You don't want a little kid to get poked.
  2. I have no idea what you are talking about. Never seen Flask's cat? He's almost as famous as Morris. Very notorious around these parts. Actually, it's Flask's neighbor's cat. Might explain why she keeps getting mad at me. Meh. She gets mad at anyone and everyone. Why?
  3. I know that no one likes 'um. But has anyone ever found a creative one? How about a Fake lightpost cache? Or toy lightpost cache?
  4. Yes, that was bad. But that doesn't hurt anymore. I don't know what happened, but the CO checked on it, but didn't see bees. Also, I found 19 caches after that incident. But not on the same day. Where do you get the spray? Does it repel bees/wasps? YOu can get the spray from the body shop, target, etc. - Look for pillow mist/ essential oils. Keep in mind that after a recent discovery Bees are active in the winter. So much for the benfits of caching in the winter, eh! Really? I thought bees were dead/not active in the winter. Wasps live after they sting. But they cannot survive in the winter. However for bees it is the exact opposite. Bumblebees are the bees that are active during the winter. Recently discovered-2 years ago. Link-http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildlife/6521434/Scientists-investigate-phenomenon-of-the-winter-bees.html Then I'm safe. Wasps are what I got stung with. Oh. I thought you said bees. Happy caching then! I meant wasps.

  8. No, I was caching with a family member whose stings were pretty bad, so I had to go back. I don't really know if I'm allergic, actually
  9. I don't know what kind. How can I find out? With the attack, was a stinger left in your skin? If so then it is a prime indication that you where stung by a worker bee. If not, you could have been bitten or stung by a wasp. Yep, wasps can sting multiple times but you will typically have two wounds from one attack if they sting you because they will try to insert the stinger wile biting. Most wasp attack only result in bits and honeybees do not bite. Now visualy. Meet Apis mellifera or the common honeybee. Notice the amount of hair that can be seen easily wile flying and the muted coloration. It almost looks docile. Now meat a wasp commonly mistaken for a bee Vespula vulgaris. This wasp also resembles the German and the North American eastern and western. The hairs are much harder to see on the fly, the color is much brighter. Much meaner looking. I think it's probably a wasp.

  11. Notify me when someone quotes my posts in the forums. Anyway to do that. Thanks!
  12. I don't know what kind. How can I find out?
  13. thx for the advice. But how can you tell what areas have bee activity?
  14. Wow, brainsnat! That's some real treasure there!
  15. Today while caching, I got stung. It ruined our plans, because I had to go back home. Any idea for avoiding bees while caching other than going in the winter? Thanks!
  16. See http://www.geocaching.com/about/icons.aspx. It's the 3rd one under "Conditions"
  17. There is a scenic view attribute, it looks like a pair of binoculars.
  18. Does anyone know which place or park has the most caches? Just for fun.
  19. My friend, whose relatives cache, but not him. REMOVE THE ERRANT APOSTROPHE PLEASE! Sorry, I will fix it. thank you very much You're very welcome No, put it back. This is MY thread and those are allowed in here. It's ok. I don't want to put it back anyway. Only a muggle would say something like that. Do want an award or something, now? No, I am not a muggle. I found 110 caches.
