  1. A Very sentimental TB of a friend was apparently lost. I want to help her replace it with a similar TB. I have the TB listed in my account. How do I delete that listing and transferred to her? Once transferred I intend to put it in one of my caches so it can move on. Thanks
  2. Is there any way to be alerted to new hides in a particular area? Seems like some cachers have that ability.
  3. This is the one answer that makes sense. FYI: I'm entering this hobby/sport attempting to apply the rules 100%. So many caches apparently don't. My question was intended to understand the way the counts work.
  4. I appreciate response to my post. However, everyone has their own reason for Geocaching. I'm not missing out but I appreciate your advice.
  5. And they did not show up in my statistics or total find. What gives? Seems there should be incentive to report maintenance finds. Not so if they are not counted.
  6. Thanks everybody... Yes, I figured that out after going to the Cache page and saw that the owner said it was temporarily unavailable but he/she pointed to my log as a hint to the new, temporary hiding place. The owner will retrieve it and put it in its proper place. Again, thanks everyone.
  7. I just checked my Geocaches and noted that one of them has a line crossing out the title (see below): Sunday, 25 September 2011California bsandrew found Balboa Park International Exchange This Cache name has a line essentially crossing it out. Field Note: Found it totally exposed next to a palm tree. Everthing of value has been taken and there is no log. Bring paper if you look for this one. I hid it under a downed tree 30ft from the palm tree. Wood is wood. I salvaged the Cache and put it nearby, staying true to the hint. Can anyone tell me what's the story with the line crossing out the Cache name??? Did the Cache owner do it?
  8. I have a Thunderbolt that is most definitely accurate enough. I'm typically within a few feet from the cache I'm looking for.
  9. Hi Everyone, This is probably an over done topic but I've just started to Geocache but I'm totally addicted. This is a great way to hike and get work out of your head. As a new user I have been trying to make certain to do everything by the book. But I've been somewhat discouraged that Trackables are not being logged as grabs and drops as they should. Eight out of 10 times, the Trackable that is supposed to be in a Cache is gone but not logged as a grab. Part of the problem might be the directions on the site. What is the general thought on this?
