  1. Just got my Google wave invite today, Im not sure how to use it but I might have a couple to share
  2. I am thankful that my wife and daughter have started going to church with me and are considering converting. We now go to church as a family and this couldnt be a better time of year to express this. I would like to wish all the posters a Happy Thanksgiving.
  3. Spent 23+ years in the Navy as a jet engine mechanic working on F14 Tomcats. 8 months on a carrier during Desert Storm and Desert Shield. But my hats off to our present day Military folks
  4. Required or requested, I asked them to perform the activity. Refusing to do so but insisting that they be allowed the find anyway is, to me, akin to thumbing their nose. You may wish to call it something which sounds less rude and I'm certain that most of those folks don't want to use that terminology (some probably do), but that's what it looks like to me. AMEN
  5. I like the bonus cache option, even though I suck at puzzles this would be one that I would probably try
  6. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. hyp⋅o⋅crite    /ˈhɪpəkrɪt/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [hip-uh-krit] Show IPA –noun 1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. 2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, esp. one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements. My opinion is that if you didnt want to do what the cache owner wanted to make the cache fun or interesting when it was manadatory it seems a little hypocritical to do it when its optional but the cache owner still has the same intent. I dont have a lot of experience with ALR caches and havent seen any that had ridiculous requirements but I either would find the cache and log it the way the owner intended or I wouldnt do it at all.
  7. I'm puzzled. How would the behavior you describe be hypocritical? Hypocrisy would be somebody who publicly supported ALR caches going out and logging one without performing the requested action. Is that what you meant? I think if you didnt do this cache because of the ALR and now that its optional you l find it to get the smiley
  8. I wonder how many hypocrites will go out and log ALR caches, just because they can and not have their logs deleted. I suck at puzzles but I wouldnt rejoice them going the same way ALR caches have been watered down. how many people would solve the puzzle if it was optional? how many puzzle cache hiders would keep pushing the envelope with their puzzles if cachers DIDNT HAVE to solve them? Groundspeak missed the call on this one
  9. so someone could find it without completing the challenge but you would have to delete the log if they dont meet the requirements, I want to put some cool stuff in it but we've had a problem of people taking TBs and coins out of caches so I think for at least the first few finders Ill have themm send me there info. I think I can have some fun with this.
  10. I want to do one of these but maybe someone can answer this, the cache would not be at the listed coords? the cacher emails you his completion you verify and send him the coords??
  11. What feature, do they have ageocaching page?
  12. I already owned a GPSr (Magellan Explorer 200) when I came home from vacation and happened to read about geocaching in the Sunday paper, they interviewed a local cacher. I thought this would be something to use my GPSr for, I hadnt used it for much a 200 is a pretty basic gps. So I logged on and lo and behold there was a cache within 1/4 mile so off we went my daughter and I spent about 30 minutes looking for the cache. We couldnt understand why the cache wasnt right where the GPSr said ground zero was, finally found about 20 feet away. We've been hooked ever since
  13. I think I own the record for DNFs on 1/1 some really were 1/1s when I ended up finding them, one of those" cannt see the forest for the trees" kinda thing
  14. If they have logged the cache and not the Tb's I'd grab them, if they haven't logged the cache try to be patient
  15. 19 and I hope you have as much fun opening them and spending time with your family as I did MERRY CHRISTMAS
  16. Ive got a couple on there way havent made it here yet. Im from there originally
  17. I ordered 2 (1 of each metal) can't wait to see the owners edition. How many folks have finished all 51?
  18. okay got the macro installed download caches but all i get is the cache name date placed but no cache page or hint did i miss a step?
  19. finally got it. I use opera and when I downloaded it it just brought up the code. Downloaded with IE and worked as advertised thanks for the help
  20. Having a hard time with the macro I dont remember it being this hard before when I go to download I get a page with all the lines of code and I cant remeber what to do to install the macro HELP
  21. First off you have to be pretty bored to read cache logs looking for problems, and by posting NM/MA you ASSUME that the previus finders didnt send an email to the owner advising him personally that there is/was a problem with a cache
  22. Id love to have one as an owner of one of the caches
