  1. I would guess it happens more often then not!
  2. Several things can lead to those results, you can also read about the 35mph tree in FL if you do some research. All have been explained by the experts in the field and the operators are taught how to recognize and reduce the chances of things like that from happening.
  3. Be careful what you wish for. What if your definition of "lame" is what a bunch of other people enjoy and think geocaching should be, and what if the kinds of caches you like to find get slowly done away with because they're not getting good reviews by these folks? Hmmm?? Oh they won't, I have read in several of the lame logs that others felt the same way! Bring on the ratings!
  4. A rating system that allows the cachers that find the cache to rate it would be a great idea, maybe that would help do away with so many lame caches!
  5. Sounds like a great idea! We haven't been caching long but have already come across a lot of lost bugs and coins. If you need a chapter in the east let us know.
  6. I'm sure you'll have better luck next time! lol
  7. Check out this thread, a lot of good stuff! http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...&hl=arsenal
  8. Here in NC the radar is only an instrument used to verify the officers estimate as to the speed of a vehicle. The radar is checked for accuracy in the beginning of each shift and after each and every enforcement action. Also the officer has to track the vehicle using a Doppler tone, which enables the officer to determine what vehicle his radar beam is reflecting off of, pretty simple. Trials involving radars just don't happen, rules of evidence allows the submission of the radar into evidence as long as the prosecutor can establish a foundation as to the proper operation of the instrument. Radar certification is one of the toughest certifications to get and hold so most officers are consistent with the operation in accordance with the standards.
  9. 5. Do not leave your suction cup mounts for your vehicle GPSr's on the window. They are starting to hit vehicles with the mounts still on the window knowing the GPSr is in the glove box.
  10. Sounds like a lot better then most the pure junk we have been finding! Give it a spin and see how it works!
  11. without knowing anything about your GPSr I would say you should be able to change the position format in one of the menus on your unit. Yes I said Unit.... If your GPSr doesn't have an navigation feature then yes you will have to simply find the location of the cache by trying to get the coordinates on your GPSr to match the coordinates of the cache, easier said then done at first!
  12. I have to recommend a Garmin 60Csx, easy to use and you won't have to worry about trying to sell it for close to what you paid for it should you not like caching!
  13. 80 caches..... little over striation from what I could tell!
  14. 1. A simple drill with a wood bit would do the trick here! 2. To attempt this with a drill would probably result in blood loss! Unless you was using a very heavy duty drill press. I would strongly recommend a metal lathe.
  15. Hats off to Scruffster, it appears they went above and beyond the call of duty!
  16. Couldn't have said it better myself, 99.9% of what you will find is pure junk! Please do everyone a favor and leave something better. I have been leaving carabineers and key chain carabineers, there seems to be a fair percentage of hikers amongst the caching population and you can never have to many carabineers. Don't bother with adding more junk to the mix there is plenty of that to go around!
  17. Maybe it would serve a better purpose to make the person submitting the cache to pick which size it is instead of simply stating unknown or other.
  18. Thanks Bryan, I'll give you a ring sometime tomorrow!
  19. No I sure don't! I'm at work right now but I'll see what I can do tomorrow! Sorry about that, I wasn't sure where I should post it!
  20. Figured I would order from the source, even though I could have saved a little bit of money, especially on shipping if ordered from a distributor. But I didn't, I figured I would give Groundspeak the benefit of my business and I'll never do that again! After spending almost $8 for shipping, even if I would have chosen USPS. the package arrived and I'm not pleased. Well to make a long story short we ordered a small assortment of cache stickers and a couple of containers. The containers made it no problem but they might as well folded up the stickers and placed them in a small envelope and they would have probably made it in better condition, for $8 am I wrong for expecting better? Needless to say I'm a very disappointed customer!
