  1. Is it a safer area? I heard parts of LA can be unsafe. Also recommendations around the Torrance area would be great. Its where all the richy riches go to walk their dogs. You might see a celeb on a trail. I know nothing about Torrance, can't help you there. OK! Thank you!

  3. Didn't someone say last year in the forums that the world would end? It didn't!
  4. So much for saying the world would end on that day.
  5. Probably a moot point since there won't be anymore leap years. What do you mean? There is a leap year in 2016. Nope, remember this is 2012. There is nothing after this year. No, there is 2013, if that's what you mean.

  7. Hello, I am from Appleton, WI and am looking for someone in Los Angeles, CA to complete a multi-part cache. I have coordinates to WP2 and I believe it is somewhere near the LA Airport. The cache info is here http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC11ZNW I don't know what state WP3 will be located (wisconsin or california)? My brother would also like a geocacher that he can log this with also. Once WP3 is found, both parties can log this as a find. If you would like to help, please e-mail me at ladydemonsia @ yahoo dot com. Sincerely Kristin My trip will be in a long while, but if you still need help at the time of the trip, I would be glad to.
  8. I would like some cache recommendations near LA. Caches along walking trails would be nice. Any tips for caching there? Thanks!
  9. Uncle Andrew GC36NGR. I put some thought into the container.
  10. Why not? And then GS can follow it up with a "Day After The Day The World Didn't End" souvenir
  11. I don't know, 2016 is really far away!
  12. On the blog, there was a announcement for a souvenir, The Article. You don't have to go to an event to get a souvenir, you can find a cache afterwards.
  13. Welcome to caching and Texas adventure. For state parks in Texas, you can get a map with all trails listed on them. National parks are the same way. For the GC site, sometimes the "hikimg" or walking map will show trails. Not guaranteed, but possible. I leave near Govt Canyon SNA, so our trails are listed and on the TOPO. Believe me, its a pain, but if you want to get your feet wet big time, check out the Texas Challenge, its a MEGA event in North Texas this year, based at Ray Roberts SP. Hope it helps a little... Feel free to swing by www.texasgeocaching.com for more information. I have read some about the Texas Challenge, but thanks for mentioning it because I need to look at the site again. It looks interesting! Thanks for all of the tips! I will look at the hiking or walking maps on the GC website. That certainly might help! I found printed copies of the map of Huntsville State Park, but I am so bad at this that I wasn't sure where to start even though I know where the trailheads are. Which trail to take is my question. I think the walking/hiking directions may have been the step I was missing. I use a Garmin 60GSX and an iPad. Try OpenCycleMap on geocaching.com/map , which shows caches on the trails, and then you can match it up to the real paper map.
  14. Yep, that's my thought as well. I was a competitive orienteer for several years before geocaching came along, and the ratio is even more heavily male there (probably 75/25 max) - racing off-trail through the woods, getting dirty and occasionally lost is not most women's idea of fun. Some of us females don't mind getting dirty, snowy, wet, whatever. We had a snowshoe event today--54.5% female human, 36.4% male human, 9.1% female canine. I looked at a group shot of a hiking event from last summer: The adult women outnumbered the adult men, but the percentages including kids were 50% male human, 39% female human (including a 3-year-old who should count triple because she was so darn tough, hiking 10+ miles without whining!) and 11% canine, gender unknown. Interpretation? Up to you. So do dogs count as well? Never thought about that.
  15. No, it means that they can do anything they like without consequence. Which obviously is true. Who's gonna ban the banners? If someone gets banned, is it the banners fault? I doubt that they even want to ban people. That depends. I don't know. They could just delete all those posts here that we've just made. They could say it's off-topic and that's why they got deleted. You don't think it is, and I don't think it is, but what are you gonna do about it? There are unwritten rules in every place, including here. People think everyone should follow them. For example, when you find a cache, it's common sense not to break the container or throw it in the garbage. When such things happen, people get angry. Right?

  17. And neither may be their interpretation. But of course it's them who make the rules, so back to square one. They made the rules, they decide how to interpret them. The rules just didn't appear out of nowhere. Which was exactly my point. They don't like something, they can do whatever they want. They could make a new rule first, but why even bother? In effect, it means that there are no rules. No. There are still rules. And if they don't like something, isn't it either against the rules or against common sense? If their are no rules, then it means one can do anything they like without consequence. Is this true right now?
