  1. I would buy Mammoth cave and place a cache deep underground. Talk about staying underground for a week to find the cache--- a serious 5/5 cache! cave-rat
  2. Oh... how about this... finding a well-used condom in a cache once in Chicago. Or finding a ammo can out at Cape Cod and open it up and find sands up to the top. I have seen dolls and books that should have gotten a "retirement"... to the trash years ago. What I hates the most is the McDonald crap. I know that some people like it but to me that is just plain ol' junk especially if it already been opened and the item was a hot item 5 years ago. Ya think a 50 years old man would love McDonald craps. I personally never take anything except I would take coins from other countries. I travels a lot and coins means more to me. cave-rat
  3. Well, I been stopped so many times that I stopped counting after 8 times. Once at gun point, once with two cars boxing us in at a cemetary. All ended peacefully after a good explaination. I think it has to do a lot with my age being young also it surely does not help that I have a habit of parking in odd places... like at a side of a dirt road in middle of nowhere at 10pm. My favorite was when I was at a local college in and two cops came up to me... I thought oh brother!!! not again. But then they said... did you find it yet. It turned out to be the owners of the cache and I been came good caching friends with them.
  4. I agree with sataraid.... I love it but it might be smarter to place it a few miles in the forest... that would make me laugh
  5. I don't see any problem with that. I know of a cache team of 6 people- childhood friends. They have their own account and also the 6 people have a team account... they stated on the profile that it was a TEAM account. So they logs their own and the team account. To me... why not, if they are having fun doing it that what, that is what I care about.
  6. Well, I have done that where you cut and paste.... it all depends on what kind of cache it is. Most of what I have "cut and paste" was light pole caches... really- there is not a whole lots to tell other than a rare extra where I would say... "boy, the place was busy today". However with multis and puzzles, I tends to stick with longer logs partly because I usually spend a long time on the cache. Either way, I'm starting to get into a habit of adding stuff in my logs... what the weather was like or what I saw on the trail or what was in the cache... ETC. I really loved it to see a good log in my cache and right from the beginning always hated to see only TFTC- there is a number of cachers in my area that always do that.
  7. I'm a cheapy... used peanut butter jars most of the time (after cleaning up the container, of course) and put camo stuff on it.
  8. What I have seen happened is similar to you. What they did that solved the problem was chain the cache to a tree and put a lock on with the key somewhere else... like a puzzle. Granted... that only works if the jerk0 owner did not seen where the key went or if they had the gut to saw the chain off.
  9. I always leave DNF if I did not find it. It shows other people that it might not be there... also if nobody ever leave DNF... what if 5 people before me couldn't find it but did not log a DNF... then I'm wasting my time.
  10. Yes you are looking for BIG BOY... that was one of the best cache container I ever have gotten to find... very hard to find something like that Where did you get the link from the jerk from GA.... he can come and threat me anytime... I don't have any caches for him to take from me
  11. It is up to the owner- some finders are crybabies. If there is a cache that I tried finding but lucked out- I always would either try it another day or ask the owner for a hint- usually he would do so.... like I said it all depends on the owner
  12. I agree with BlueDeuce. Who really cares- I say it all depends on the owner of the cache. For me personally, when I have somebody to test my cache to make sure that the coords is correct or whatever, I make them promise that they would not log their find until there is a FTF because around here people can get very nasty about FTF thing.
  13. Ahem!!!! I don't disagree with that- I always make a good effort to travel out of my way to find their cache- never left the cache site disappointed.
  14. How about the time when I thought I found a cache after spending over an hour on the site and it turned out to be somebody else's stash.... 7 knives and 5 bullets. Or another time when I found a very well used condom in a cache Or another time I found a nasty magazine in a cache- took it out and threw it away Or another time found a cache full of dirt!
  15. I don't even have a gun. However my cousin up in Alaska always carry a gun (big gun not a .22) caching or whatever and a bell on his leg to scare bears away. He had to kill a grizzy once after it charged at him- it got 50 feet away from him before dropping dead. I think he also had to kill a black bear once too. I have another family member that lives in Colorado around mountain lions and he came across a few but each ran away after he fired his gun in the air. So my answer is... depends one where you are.
  16. I also normally don't move anything without reading what the owner wants because there is quite a few owners in my homestate of Michigan that wants their bug to stay in Michigan so I learned quickly to check. However going from Greece to the Netherland is very odd but sometime I take bugs the opposite direction...say...a bug wants to go to London then I will take it west instead of east to Chicago...why....there is a better chance that it will actually go to London. Otherwise I try to place the bug closer to its goal...even if that is only five miles
  17. there was one "under a log"....hello...you are standing in forest with countless of fallen tree
  18. found a bong, knives, used needles, and 12 dead deers in a pile...gutted and headless (somebody must hate deers)
  19. Neither had I, but I have heard of Google: http://www.sleazegrinder.com/int_Billyhopeless.htm From the looks of him, it probably would not be a good idea to disturb him. same here...checked for a pic of him.....scary man The most famous one for me was the my local weatherman at a nearby lake with his family. I remember thinking....boy he is a small man
  20. unopened condom .......I think....saw it and quickly closed it...never came back
  21. REALLY! Around here, it is mostly crummy onces in poison ivy
  22. ha....I had the same problem when I started...it was at a lake and the actual walk around the lake from the nearest cache was .5 miles but the stupid lake had to be narrow enough that it was just under the legal limit...I told the reviewer that...he did not move so I got moved it .....now too close to another one....gave up that spot moved it....same problem again. Finally for the fourth time I checked every other caches nearby it- 700ft to the next nearest....but had to go on vacation...when came back...somebody beat me to it and their cache was 200 ft away...arrrr gave up that park altogether and placed it in my front yard. Never regret it since it is very easy to maintance it and fun to watch people hunt for it. don't give up...it is still fun
  23. Paid gps...could not remember the cost but I uses it for other reason gas...almost don't want to know map software....a rip off price but had to two geocoin...20 bucks total obviously the gas is the worst....I drove 35 thousand miles in one year (not incluing driving/flying without my gps on)...some with my car...some with friends..some in my company truck. other than that....I'm too cheap to get anything else
  24. The primary argument to allow geocaching is that it's just like any other activity one would do in those parks. As such, we should pay the same fee anyone else using the parks pays. At any rate, it's not commercial. State parks aren't someone's money-making venture. I agree and I agree with your wife For me, I never go anywhere where they charges me until I have other reason to go there...like swim in Lake Michigan.
