  1. The cache-a-day program does that Especially when it is the cache(s)-a-day program :yikes:
  2. Thanks Everyone! And a special thanks to Miss-Keeto and Ript2shrds for hosting our visit! This is the log for Heavy Metal vs Hard Rock. Anyone who wants a truely unique caching experience should go up to Kingston and try this trek through an old limestone mine! ------------------------------------ I scouted this location out back in August and decided this would be a cool place to pick for a milestone cache. But, I also decided that this would best be done with a group, rather than solo. So I assembled an intrepid group of cache finders, and headed out for a fun day of caching in Kingston. We were joined by Miss-Keeto and ript2shrds for our tour-de-Kington. The kids loved the big box of Dunkin' Donuts that Miss-Keeto brought along (Thanks!). We parked close to the spot I had picked out last time, but with less uphill to walk in their choice of spots, assembled the team and began the climb down to the cave entrance. We arrived at the cave and set out for the quest. Deeper and deeper into the abyss we descended. Multiple light sources beamed around. Look down, the cave keeps going and going. Wait. Is this a cave ? Drill holes are spotted in the ceiling. This was a mine! There are fractures and cracks in the ceiling. Fresh boulders have fallen. This is an active mine. The mountain is alive! Drip. Drip. Drip. Something's dripping in here, we hope it's water. No ice, but it is cool down there. And wicked cool to explore. I climb around and spot the cache then go sit down so that others can try and find it too. Finally, we retrieve the cache and open the treasure chest to see what secrets lie within. I grabbed the geocoin, and left a white jeep and a domino set. What better place for a signature item to reside. We all sign, trade, etc. and then everyone heads out. I am holding the can and descend back, deep into the bowels of the cave to replace the cache in it's home while everyone ascends. Finally, I emerge, the team is back in the sunlight. We are victorious! Thanks to Miss-Keeto and ript2shrds for hosting us during our visit to Kingston. This town is gonna get a reputation as a fun place to go caching And thanks for making a very memorable cache for us to celebrate #800 with! Many more caches are to be logged. TFTC! (#800) P.S. I wore a hard hat. For those of you who are vertically enabled (a.k.a. tall) - bring head protection to avoid a good whack on the noggin'!

  4. For those of us not in the know, can someone explain what the "NCT System" is ?
  5. Congratulations fog! Way to go. Now just remember - "Don't Follow Fog!"
  6. Thanks. I'll check it out.
  7. So I'm going to be in Anaheim Sunday afternoon through Wednesday for a conference. I'm coming in from CT. I have some bugs that want to go west. Looking at the caches near my hotel and the convention center, there are not many cache options for a car-less traveler. Most are virtuals or Micros. Any CA cachers want to hook up, grab a few caches where I can do some bug drops, and have a beer afterwards ? EMail me through the geocaching website. Thanks!
  8. Well, back in the days of 2 area codes, it was the 201 / 609 divide. Not sure where it would be these days ???
