  1. I am flying to Boise, ID in a couple of weeks for 2 days. I wanted to know of caches or locations I should consider. Also where should I stay? Thanks
  2. I will be going to Mexico (Riviera Maya) in a few weeks. I was wondering which maps would you recommend? The 2 that look promising are the City Navigator Mexico NT and the Mexico GPS Atlas 2009 Edition. We will be renting a car so we would like routing. Feel free to email me with must see attractions or restaurants. Thanks
  3. I was trying to select types of caches along a route, but when I submit everything it does not filter anything. When I go back to edit it the caches I just selected are un-selected. Are there others experiencing this or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help!
  4. I think a historical tour multi or a regular cache series would be great. However, I do not think that anybody should be required to get emailed an additional information unless they needed additional hints or help. You could just put hints for each of the stages and/or put pictures labeled spoiler if it gives away the cache. When I was there they were filming Pirates of the Caribbean 2/3 I think it would be fun/interesting to see where they filmed it. I cannot wait to get back there and do some more exploring and possibly dive Ben's Cave.
  5. I had the same problem I was checking out and then it booted me out with nothing in my cart. Arrrg!
  6. I was not lucky today as both the Delaware "Pot of Gold" coins were already taken. I will keep my hopes up, maybe someday I will find a pot of gold!
  7. I use cachemate and GPX Spinner/Plucker (although I do have a palm). I mainly use cachemate, but have looked at Plucker for pics/additional help. Here is the Geocachingde website info on paperless. I think the author uses a pocket PC and likes GPXSonar. http://www.geocachingde.com/Pages/Adventur...essCaching.html
  8. I have used Zanfel for some cases of poison ivy or if I think I have touched it. I have also used Tecnu as well. I started to use Zanfel at the suggestion of a pharmacist. I did have a bad case of it last year where my leg swelled up to the point where it hurt. I went to my doctor and get some oral steroids (methylprednisone I think) and topical steroid as well. About 24 hours on the oral steroid the itching stopped, 48 hours I noticed a difference in my skin. However it did take a few weeks for my skin to look normal again and there was no scaring. Does anyone know it the poison ivy blockers work?
  9. I thought it was a little funny that I just finished reading this book when I heard the GSA was out and about.
  10. The Secret Agent came through Delaware!! I have been visiting the GSA's homepage for daily updates and saw that there was a drop at Wrangle Hill Seek. I tried to find any trace, but all that was left was the geocoin. Thanks for the coin!
  11. I missed out too. I guess I have to keep up. I was looking for a new thread also.
  12. I was able to find one yesterday !! I have not been keeping up with the forums lately then I noticed The Easter Coin Bunny was hopping around. I went to the closest cache where the Bunny dropped an egg that had not been found. It was a long drive, sitting in traffic woundering if it would still be there. It was well worth the effort. Thanks Easter Coin Bunny!!!!
  13. I chose my first cache because it had a travel bug (SPONGE GEO BOB) and I was going south and wanted to move it. Both caches took me forever to find (felt like hours and probably was).
  14. Cool contest! Just got some "Mackey Made It" coins and will be setting some free soon.
  15. Here are a few caches I have come across that have locks involved. Some I have done some of which I am still working on. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...63-383e63a3df19 http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...96-b63d429ae266 http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...a7-17fcdae4e8fa http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...6f-eaa983fda166
  16. I will take 2 of each metal. Thanks
  17. Thank you Geocoin Fairy I love the coin! I decided to attempt to get the coin in the Ducks Galore cache in NJ about 2 hours from my house. (After being in Florida for a wedding past midnight on Sat., getting up at 5am to go to the airport, having a few hours before going to work for 15 hours. I think this is the furthest I have ever traveled to get a specific cache and coin. On the way to the cache I was full of energy and excitement so the lack of sleep did not affect me. It is another story on the way home. On the way there I was lucky enough to have loaded the map for that area when I loaded the Florida maps. If the cache had been placed 3-4 miles away it would have been off my GPS map and I would be finding it the old school way. I arrived at the cache site after weaving with trucks, fearing a speeding ticket and almost running out of gas in a little under 2 hours. The fairy I spotted about 5 miles from the cache really filled me with hope and gave me an extra boost (in log below). On the way home I just kept in looking at the coin in disbelief that I had found The Geocoin Fairy's coin. I also had to stop and get a beverage to keep me awake because the sleepy fairy caught up with me. I arrived home safely and collapsed in bed and went to sleep. Thanks again Geocoin Fairy for a great coin! Instant Coffee Here is the log for Ducks Galore: I decided to go to this cache in hope of getting a The Geocoin Fairy's coin. It was after going on a whirlwind visit to West Palm/Miami for a wedding and arriving back home just a few hours before working my 15 hour shift on Sunday. I printed the Cache page and manually entered the coords and headed out. After driving for a while getting anxious....will the coin still be there?? After about 1 hour 40 minutes and a little over 5 miles to go Tinker Bell appears on the blue GMC Yukon in front of me which gave me hope. It is a sign foreshadowing the outcome. I parked by the play ground and there were ducks galore and nobody around. Rushing out of the car with excitement and scaring some of the ducks I head for the cache. The coordinates were right on. At first look with my heart pounding I did not see it but upon further investigation it is in the zipper bag with the log. I got one doing a secret Geocoin Fairy dance (not sure if anyone saw me). Thank you Geocoin Fairy for the precious gift. The cache was very wet but everything in the zipper bag was dry. I dried out the cache and the swag and placed in another zipper bag. Discarded a unreadable business card. I left travel bug dog tags, a blue and green micro bison tubes, oriental coin, and Angel Snot (the gift of precious fluids from heavens messengers). Signed log and closed lid tightly.
  18. I used Babel Fish to translate the page. It did not get all the word but was good enough for me. http://babelfish.altavista.com/
  19. I would be interested in a set or 2.
  20. I am glad to hear Buddy is doing well ! I find information and have recommended the CDC website for information on infectious diseases and emerging diseases. I have not heard anything about new tick borne diseases. However nothing beats going to your veterinarian or your doctor. http://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/index.htm http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/index.htm I also had a tick experience at a multi cache this spring, Smithmill Devil (63 total)). I was itching the rest of the day and night. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LU...4d-394ab072b8ee
  21. Well I missed the shows so I am at the mercy of a few friends who did watch. I got a message from my parents last night saying that they did not give me good advice. Lucky for me I did not take their advice. I am still not sure if I want to change my choice or not. Still have some time to think. I wonder if this is like multiple choice exams....your first choice is the best?
