Yeah, I know, Harmon, y'all gunna die!!! But at least we'll be having fun doing it!!!
See y'all there!!
The mud will make the climb out far more interesting! Wow, this sounds like something I might want to do ... hey, Harmon? If you go ... I'll watch you're back, JUST LIKE THE LAST TIME!
Yes, Barrie, I never got that follow-up exam from you.
Get a load of this new Smackdown challenge, shoot, if
they want braggin' rights then do it while there's some
serious rain coming down so's you can rival the mess
that Passing Wind and his pal got into during a rain-
Ain't no way that ditch will drie out before th' 27th. Mud
is going to be their middle name.
Say! wait just a darned minute ... now I get it, they're
going to horn-in on our Smackdown celebration and try
t' steal our thunder. Why I oughta ....
Y'all gonna die!
Wow, That's all I can say...Sure wish I wasn't working that night..but I'll be thinking about the mysterious crew..Looking forward to the celebration and what the original crew will do to smack down the new crew..But if any of the original Smackdown Crew goes for seconds then I guess they will need to receive double recognition for their accomplishment...To date, I don't know of anyone who has gone into the abyss twice.

GC22dxj..our friend wrote an interesting post and has returned to his old ways in calling Mrs.K a cheapskate...The first time he did this we kinda let it go thinking that it must of been an age thing. Jodi will probaby remember when he said it...We would like everyone to save their M&M tubes for us...
January 15 by SD Rowdies (4710 found)
Some cheapskate, not a single M&M left for me.
when we he ever learn...and just when Jodi was thinking that she would take it easy this year on him...did he really think that Mrs.K's girl friends would put up with this? hmmm
Does anybody know any resources for finding Geocaches that have a historical theme?
I like to travel and visit a locality history and being able to find them easily would be helpful. You know
how it is when you are on vacation time is limited.
BTW: Is there an Icon for history themed geocaches?
Calif has many
I have sad news to report - the loss of another geodog. Bubba, BlondeHiLite's beloved Rottweiler had a tragic accident and passed away Friday. I had the pleasure of hiking with him, as did Ginger! and Mocha!; for a big boy, he had a mellow but confident disposition.
Rest in peace Bubba.
We are very sorry to hear this...Bubba was a great dog.
We feel your loss...so sorry...
Today is Jodi's Birthday! Let's all sing it together...Happy Birthday Day to you...everybody....
Happy Birthday Day to you...Happy Birthday dear Jodi...Happy Birthday Day to you! We love you Jodi!
Count my in as a definite possiably 1 other, Will notifie on other asap

I founded a cach in Nazca in Peru. But I am from Russia and so I can't take care about it. Can somebody among local geocachers help me?
wish I was there to help
We have a great geocaching community in Auckland & Waikato! Go to the next event, as was suggested previously.
Also, I have a yellow Etrex for sale $150 to first taker.
Send me a message thru my profile on geocaching.com
would love to cache in New Zealand
There aren’t a lot of caches down there (38 caches within 50 mile radius of Playa del Carmen) but don’t let that stop you.
Hi neighbors from San Diego

Hi Team from Luxemburg !!
I'm from Thionville and discovered geocaching recently.
I want to travel around your country and i need the card to putt into my Garmin.
I can exchange with my french-card.
Thank you !!
I feel welcome here..
Another Islander here, from Victoria. I cache with my husband and 4 year old son, although we are very new to it with only a handful of finds under our belt.
Can't wait for slightly nicer weather though, rain and a cranky preschooler do not make for a fun afternoon!
LOL.. I can imagine!.. I wish it had been available when my kids were young, they would have loved it. Although Adults now, my two girls have both done several Caches with me. I have relatively 'new' to this also but with the 'stress' of my job, I find it a GREAT way to get 'replenished' by getting out to lovely areas.. away from the daily grind. I have done some caching in a virtual 'downpour' and over the last few days... some in the Snow...all of which were very cool! Happy Caching and Happy New Years~
Canadian Girl from San Diego just reached 2000 finds
Thanks for the translation, I got something similar from an online translater but I wasn't sure about my TB but I am now.
Thanks very much.
You can see any hidden caches in Ukraine on site www.geocaching.su
wish I could be there
Congrats CG!Congratulations to Canadian Grl for #2000.
Link to log:
Yay! She's caching again!! Congrats, Canadian Grl, on 2000!!
Seems just like yesterday that you were at 1000 finds...Congrats!
Wow! There sure are a lot of orgs in TN! Kind of fragmented.
One in every geographical part of the State.
Memphis=Geocachers of West Tennessee
Jackson=Jackson Area Geocachers
Nashville=Middle Tennessee Geocachers Club
Chattanooga=Greater Eastern Tennessee Geocachers Club and Geocachers of Southeast Tennessee
Knoxville=Greater Smokey Mountains Geocachers Club
However many from each club get together with the other clubs, attend each others events, and post on each others boards.
We love Tennessee cachers! Our first caches were found in Tennessee!
Recently, I heard a story somewhat like one I heard 3weeks ago and a couple times a month or so before that, Basicly the Cacher didn't share their FTF with the group of lookers at GZ and people where upset. Are we expected to share ftf with everyone who shows up? Sorry, if I find it, it’s my FTF! Especially if there are a half dozen cacher’s or more looking in a 40ft circle? Get over it! How do others feel about this? Of course I know there are exceptions.
I'm fast approaching my 500th FTF and I have been caching for less then 2 years sometimes I share them and sometimes I don't just depends how I feel at that moment but as far as I'm concerned, who finds it is the FTFer and it is totally their call most of the time we don't share. Thought I would add ......yes always share a FTF with a buddy I'm caching with in fact I think I even shared one with Bittsen one time but if I show up and there are other people there or show up while I am looking and I make the find totally my call.
I'm here...eight miles from Indiana, so I kind of blend into both.
I drive a truck down the 80 and am so glad that the speed limit has gone up..May even have time to pick up a cache now and then
Thanks Brian for all your hard work, it was "Maahvelous", how do you order up weather like that ?
I'm starting to think he has some pull with the big guy. He did the same thing for GONE, bringing us great weather despite the forecasts and went as far as having the thunderstorm wait until the movie ended.
If you are going to Aruba sometime, let me know if you need good weather!
We are so spoiled by the weather in San Diego
Thanks for the suggestions. I did end up getting the Oregon 400t a week or so ago from Amazon. It was $350 there at the time and I had $75 in gift cards, so took the leap. So far Im happy with it except that the compass tends to jump around when you get close the the cache. Im hoping this isnt a huge issue in the hills this summer.
I stalled until my husband and I found the first few caches to commit to the premium membership, but now that we have, I find it a small fee to pay for the outdoor fun we can have year round. I will definetely continue to keep it up.
I am planning to try to make it to the meetup depending on the weather. I think it would be great to meet other local geocachers!
nice and warm in San Diego
WooooooHooooooooo!!!! Congrats to Chuy! on 10k!!!
Chuy!, you are amazing. The wonderful thing about you and
the other local front-runners is that you cover the tough trails
and mountains and so often in the dark. Applause-applause!
I'll just bet that Ginger! is barking down from dawg-heaven in
celebration of your grand achievement.
Note to Self: Gawd, that Yrium-card layout is terrific.
Chuy! is amazing! A true pioneer among the San Diego caching community! We have always admired Chuy and one day hope to go to most of the places that he has already explored! We love the photo of you and your family and are glad that others had the opportunity to witness this awesome milestone!
Hot off the Press! Look at this! December 31, 2009 by halftrack guy (700 found)
Last cache of 2009, and my 700th cache. Wow, it took me a long time to make 700, but I'm finally here.
San Diego Cache Events
in West and Southwest
I've been thinking about those who are gonna venture into the swamp in search of tupperware at Szar Foyo. A noble venture indeed...Sure hope someone videos this one. Doesn't look as if the moon will be out either... Where I come from people who venture into swamps have been known to bring a critter or two home with them...Be sure to check yourselves real good.
