  1. Probably because people like them more? I know I do!
  2. Usually when I'm with other cachers who need to stop and sign the log.
  3. I log DNFs when I can't find it, and then a find when I find it, and even sometimes a DNF after that if I go back with someone and can't find it... I don't log multiple finds, but other then that I pretty much log each visit to a cache..
  4. Why have Earthcaches then? Why not just have it be another good place to hide a cache? I'm not pushing for allowing "HCs," more complaining that "ECs" are allows to exist.. lol I like them, I just don't see why they are okay when VCs and HCs and Webcams and such are not... seems a little weird. oh well.
  5. I have a lot of caches that high in trees, and they get a lot of people saying they saw it, but are too old, too something to climb and they log it found... I was upset at first, but I changed my mind and decided I don't mind.
  6. A friend pointed out to me that I own GC123G0... And I noticed GC1M0RE a while ago when driving near it...
  7. I'd rather not have to sift through all the sticky toys and signature business cards to get to the log.... personally... so the smaller caches are better in my opinion... based only on the face that they hold less junk
  8. Personally I don't worry about it, I love urban caching. I do one of two things... 1. Ignore the people staring at me and look for the cache, I don't really care what they think of me while I poke around... If they want to come ask what I'm doing I'll either explain it, or sarcastically lie, depending on if they were nice or mean when they asked. 2. Or I stand there and stare at them, trying to make them feel awkward and just keep doing it until they get tired of me and then I can go on with the search.
  9. I met my wife through geocaching too, she was logging some of my caches and I noticed her profile...
  10. I sure would, and do all the time.. I think they are great places for caches... lots of neat history to see. I'm apparently, not alone : http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.asp...&submit4=Go http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.asp...&submit4=Go
  11. Had you bothered to read the description first , perhaps this wouldn't happen. The majority of night caches i've seen listed were listed as puzzles, with few being letterbox hybrids, and multis. I've never seen a single night cache listed as a traditional. Many previous thread discussing a new icon for night caches have gone nowhere. I like to go out a travel all over my state and the nearby states every weekend and find many caches, which makes reading the description impossible... But I don't load in "Unknown" type caches on those hunts. There are a lot of night caches listed as traditionals in Utah, I'm glad its apparently not an issue in other places.
  12. I think they should have to be listed as unknowns, its not fun to go to a traditional during the day, find nothing, and then go home and read that you have to come at night and look for reflectors..
  13. Log received and deleted. Did you get the email? Yes, so I guess its still working fine.
  14. Actually you never did get notified for deleting your own logs, just if someone else did it for you. I've deleted hundred of my own logs, ( bug drops, etc.. )
  15. Does anyone know if we still get emails when logs are deleted ? I've seen my find count go down and did not get an email so I don't know what could have happened.
  16. I don't know why it didn't post the text of my post, here it is... I noticed that Delorme came out with a new Utah Atlas, there are a different number of pages and the page boundaries are completely different... Now I saw Wyoming has all changed too... What I'm wondering is has there been talk about what will happen with the delorme challenge caches? Do cachers need to use the new pages? the old pages? or either one? or is it just up to the challenge cache owner?
  17. My impression was that a "Challenge cache" was geocaching related, while a ALR was not... For example a challenge cache that requires you to have found at least one cache in each county of a state, and a ALR which requires you to pick up trash, or post a photo of you doing something... I love challenge caches when they are kept simple... and that doesn't mean easy... the "Well Rounded" Challenges where a cacher needs to find a cache with all 81 Diff/Terrain combos is hard enough and cool enough, its kindof annoying when the owner requires that the finds are on caches placed during a certain time period... just my two cents.
  18. In an effort to help the annoying use of the "M word" go away I have purposely never used it and always try to get my friends not to... Its probably the only thing in Geocaching I dislike... lol
  19. You'll be forced to go on a hike? Why can't your 200th cache be a simple park and grab? lol I've never gone after a special cache for a milestone but I know lots of people like to.
  20. If you're the first person to upload that cache to the site it takes it a while to figure out which county its in, if you check back later today it should know by then.
  21. When viewing your stats on http://www.itsnotaboutthenumbers.com/stats.php Go to "Other Stats" and then "Completed County List."
  22. I tried it once, deleted all the logs that were not on the paper log, got lots of hate mail, lost friends, created enemies, and created my new personal SOP that I don't care what people do because its a GAME and I value friendships and don't need to make people mad.
  23. I dislike deleting logs and having logs deleted. I normally won't do it. I did delete one last night where a cacher who doesn't like me called me stupid in the log I've deleted logs where cachers attack other cachers, and I delete logs where people log finds on Delorme and County challenges because they don't understand the ALR.... other then that I say let people do what they want and hope they do the same for me... just me two cents.
