  1. I wouldn't sign it because I'd want to find the real thing.
  2. Well yes, I know how it works now. I thought this board was for suggesting improvements. This is just something I'd like to see one day.
  3. Funny you should say that. I often find myself caching without my watch on, so I put the calendar icon on my gps main menu, too.
  4. What I'm trying to avoid is having to do any searches at all. I'd like to be able to click on, say, D4 hides, then maybe switch to D3.5 if I can't find what I want near me, then maybe hop over to T3 if I want to hike a little. I want to be able to click stuff on and off as I browse, not have to do separate queries for every combination that interests me. It would be great if I could configure everything I wanted to, change it as many times as I like, all in one window at once.
  5. I don't know if this has been brought up before (it's hard to search the forum with such a vague description), but it would be helpful if we could screen the displayed caches by D/T as well as by type. The search function isn't very useful, because you just get a list and have to click on each one to see where it is. It would also be great to be able to screen the displayed caches by size, too.
  6. I also get confused about the hike distances. Are they one way or round trip?
  7. I sign and date the physical log because that's what I'm told I'm supposed to do. I also log it the same day online, so hopefully the two marry up. It's no biggie to put a date for me.

    A Rant

    I know what you mean. I've had to mark three TBs missing from my caches, and I only have seven! I've even gone so far as to contact the people who say they took them in their logs to explain what should be done with trackables, but they don't respond. They just keep it.
  9. That's a lot of caching. I think 21 is my highest in one day.
  10. It's been my experience that people rarely go past the soundbites. My basic premise in life is that no one, absolutely no one, wakes up in the morning and says, "I'm going to be an idiot today." They may indeed end up doing something stupid, but at the time, something led them to believe it was okay. Until you understand that, you don't truly understand what happened.
  11. I would say he made a mistake and posted to the wrong cache, but he shouldn't even have been able to find the cache page to log it. You could email him and ask exactly what happened.
  12. Changed my mind about what I really wanted to say. No point in escalating things.
  13. Sounds like a simple misunderstanding to me. Some folks get a little picky about their FTFs, but I don't think this was personal. Just let it go and move on. It looks like it was logged as everyone wanted it to be anyway -- Fisher got the FTF that Lucky wanted him to have. Just goes to show, there are always two sides to every story.
  14. I'm not sure a really young kid can be held accountable, but his father can be. The kid probably only did it because the father was bad-mouthing you. You should have gotten his license and reported the incident to the police. Billed the guy for a new rod, maybe. Did you check the cache's log to see who it was?
  15. I had a geocoin what was supposed to go to Alaska. One guy picked it up and kept it forever (over six months, if I remember rightly). He kept visiting with it all over the place. I finally asked him to place it somewhere so it could continue on its mission, and he seemed quite put out. He did drop it in a cache and it promptly disappeared.
  16. Maybe he had to keep fixing his caches or had them stolen. There seem to be a lot of people doing this who haven't read the rules.
  17. I'm interested in geotour notifications, too.
  18. It sounds like you could just take it once it's archived. Go up and replace the log book with a new one, then republish it. That way it will remain more or less the same cache it always was.
  19. Okay, I'll go ahead and mark it missing then. Thanks for the advice!
  20. I've got a TB missing out of one my caches, but I'm not sure whether to mark it missing or not since other people have discovered it elsewhere. It's just mislogged, not actually missing. What should I do?
  21. If you're both going for an FTF, it seems you should go it alone. Whoever spots it first wins. But if it's just a regular cache and you run into another cacher, why not find it together? Sounds like more fun.
  22. Try a geotour. They tend to combine the best caches with interesting spots. And you get a prize at the end!
  23. I always read the cache description first. If it points out some feature I'm supposed to notice, then I make it a point to notice it (even if it's boring). I'll sit for a while if I've just hiked up a mountain, but don't spend any time hanging around the side of the road looking at the rock the 35mm film can was under.
  24. That's the way I plan to do it. I'm working on several challenge caches at the moment. I have no intention of trying to find any of them before meeting the requirements.
