  1. It's gonna be with comments like this from CO admin.


    "Are you intentionally trying to get modded?"


    I asked him if he could explain what he meant, but he hasn't responded.


    All this comment did is light the fuse. I even made a comment on Navicache that I was sure he is a nice person and that Casey and I would like to meet him. After all, the spring meeting is coming up and I feel we are an asset to geocaching.


    So maybe if he has a problem with me, don't you think he could email me in a mature manner?


    I think I will now do a new topic now. :blink:



  2. After being introduced to geocaching a while ago, Upinyachit has met quit a few cachers, but I wonder just how many are squeaky clean.


    I've had to do a lot of cache maintenance, so that makes me believe that some cachers are DIRTY. If you trade a golf ball for a calculator, THAT'S DIRTY. If you take a pocket knife and leave your pocket change, THAT'S DIRTY. If you don't put the cache back as placed, THAT'S DIRTY. If there is a group of geocachers that make disgruntled posts all day long, THAT'S DIRTY I can also bet that a lot of cachers post on these forums everday, but they know in their heart and soul that they made an unfair trade. Then they have the adasity to say they are an asset to geocaching. I guess that's just the way the world is, DIRTY




  3. Riddle me this, riddle me that.

    The CO administrator thinks my posts are crap. :D

    He might be wrong, he might be right,

    but is he closing my post for spite? :huh:

    If you look back, in my post history,

    you will see how many topics were closed on me. :D

    I don't need cheese to go with my whine,

    I'm just having some fun with these geocaching ryhmes. :D

    I know, CO, you have a job to do,

    but you can lighten up and quit being rude. :D

    You can't keep closing my threads forever,

    And if you try? Man, what ever!. :D

  4. Everyone loves the forums, right? Right. <_<


    Well, we want to know why!


    We all who visit the forums love 'em for one reason or another. Here's ours....


    We like the entertainment, to entertain, and to get information. Oh, the conversations we've had, B) to say the least. I do have to admit, though, I did geocache more before I discovered these forums. B)


    So it can go both ways; there are negative points as well as positive ones.


    How valuable is it to you? How much of an impact do these forums actually have in your life, good or bad?




  5. I would like to pay a well deserved tribute to a great geocaching team.

    Duane and Chiboy.


    This was the last picture taken of our dog Chi on the day of his death. Five hours later, on August 12, 2003, Chi was hit by a car in front of our home and was killed. He was a great dog to our whole family. He loved each and every member, including the cats. He was born on December 24, 2001 and was the best geocaching dog who ever lived in our eyes. He deserves to be acknowledged in some way and what better way than to post his last picture here. Who knew it would be his last.


    I recall a post we did a while back...


    by Upinyachit




    There has been times where he has been off of the leash in heavy wooded areas, and he would be sitting at the cache even before we arrived




    We believe that allowing our dog to roam the woods finding caches without a leash was a big mistake and perhaps had a hand in his death.


    He was caching since puppyhood and fell in love with the sport. He was always ready for a cache hunt anytime Duane was. He would always get so excited that, eventually, we would let him off of his leash, and soon enough, he would find the caches way before we did. Who needed a GPS with Chiboy around!


    Well, due to us losing our GPS, we slowed down on our geocaching a bit. Recently, we moved to the country and have a heavily wooded back yard. Oh, how Chi wanted to just run into those woods. The problem was our front yard.


    It is a highway.


    We never counted on him "taking off" in these woods.


    You can call it a freak accident, but I can't help but think of the "what if's".


    What if we never took him off of the leash while geocaching in those woods? Would he have wanted to take off like he did here, heading straight for them?


    He snuck out of the bottom of our screen door and was gone for hours. The next thing we knew, he was lying on the neighbors driveway, dead. His fur full of burrs from the woods.


    Two purposes of this post. You already know one. Here's the other...


    Keep your dog leashed at all times while geocaching! Please! I'm not saying that it played a sole part in it, but I know it had a small part to play in Chi's death. And now, we will never ever get him back. 


    If only we taught him not to run free like that.


    If this advice helps one owner keep his best friend, then it was well worth the time it took to post. Let Chi be a lesson to all you geocaching pooches out there...STAY ON YOUR LEASH...PERIOD.


    We will always remember our boy. 

    (Chi after a hunt last year)


    We love you, Mister!





    After four months, we now have a new puppy. "JAKE"

    He will never replace CHI, even though he looks just like him.



  6. Riddle me this, riddle me that.

    Just how important are those travel bug stats? :(

    Bugs to the left and bugs to the right,

    all tucked away and out of sight. :bad:

    Except for a geocacher, gps in hand.

    Lookout bugs all across the land. :(

    A disgruntled cacher may flip and go down under.

    Travel bugs and caches they might plunder. :(

    No one knows when they might strike,

    then again, they might say, "sike!" :unsure:


    Orkin is coming ;) ...........



    Upinyachit :(

  7. Hey guys!


    It's me, Candie. You know, Duane's wife. :mad:


    I just finished reading this thread and it's been great reading it; very entertaining. :bad:


    Most of you agreed with Duane, and I, too agree with him. What you pay for the internet has a lot to do with geocaching. How fast your cache pages load, being on the forums, etc. We pay that much because we want total access to whatever we want, when we want. Believe me, when you lose your internet, all ^%$$ breaks lose in this house! In a nutshell, we enjoy the internet, including geocaching.com and we want to get the very best service, so we pay. That is my comment on that issue.


    I also must say that we are in no way banned from the "other" site. Those forums aren't as crazy as this one. We like to be kick back, and be able to talk to fellow geocachers without someone up your a** all the time. Take this thread, for example. IT'S STILL GOOOOOOING!!! HOLY COW!! How can an off-geocaching topic like this one still be going, but yet CO Admin wants to close a great topic like the one he closed after one reply? Sorry.......just don't get it. Rules or not, that closure was done on purpose, in my opinion; maybe to throw a little weight around by the CO Admin., who knows? :blink:


    For the record, Duane is in no way committing geocide, as you all put it. (That's funny!) The other post in which you are referring to with the picture of the jackass was because we didn't get "the joke" that we thought was directed towards us when in fact it was played on whom ever saw it, only we didn't realize it. (Did you get that? LOL) We were ready to toss our tower right out the window! Duane and I both fell for it, therefore, we were portraying our "a**" and acknowledging our mistake.


    To those of you that enjoy reading some of our posts, and would miss Duane on the forums, thanks. He is dedicated to geocaching and to the forums and is constantly trying to think of new topics. It's entertaining or you all wouldn't be here in the first place. He does have every right to be upset, but he will never ever give up geocaching or the forums. :blink:


    For those who are occasionally perturbed with Duane, well, I don't think he's going anywhere. EVAAA!!!! There is a simple solution, though. If you don't like the topic, then don't post to it. It's better than being rude and a butthead! :huh:


    See ya guys!




  8. Well, I tried to make simple conversation and was yet again, shut down. I was simply doing a post about internet connection and my topic was closed. There was a cache event scheduled for this weekend in Denver that my son and I were going to, but we choose not to. I feel I have been disrespected and don't have to look for caches on this site anymore. I remember when I placed a silly joke on this site everday for over a year and now I can't even talk about a measly ol' internet connection.


    I am sure my huge family will manage without these stupid a** forums.


    Thanks Co Admin, for all the good times, it's been a pleasure and keep up the good work. :)


    I will now list my caches elsewhere, a place where we have never been disrespected and we are always welcome. Cya





  9. Your picture file gives me a security warning. Looks like you didn't upload it or link to it properly.


    Yup.....upinyachit's posts always tend to spring up my firewall warning page........


    Sometimes I have a hard time and make supid mistakes, but for the most part , I can look up caches and log finds. I am a carpenter who builds houses, so give me a break, would ya?


    Anyways the name Hunter is kinda cool, but the family decided to go with "JAKE". Jake is a big pain in the a** right now, but with patience, time, and a lot of caching, it will pay off.


    I still like Hunter. Your dog looks like a Ralph to me Duane. Whatever you choose are you going to make him wear that frilly clown thing around his neck? Dogs hate that you know, very embarassing. Some of them are ok with bandanas, but only if they are comfortable with their sexuality. If you make him wear the frizzy clown as a pup, DO NOT attempt the bandana latter. He could snap, triggering a shooting spree from a clock tower. Hey, how about Trigger? 


    What makes you think I would put a frilly clown thing around my dog's neck?


    Yadda yadda yadda.........LOL :unsure:



  10. Well, we finally did it; we bought a dog. After our goecaching dog CHI was hit by a car in NY, four months later we have a new puppy. We are still thinking of a name. Cha Chi was close, but I told the family that was lame. We have done many searches but can't find the right name for him.



    Any suggestions out there?



  11. Upinyachit, I would be more than happy to start a new thread about this event since we are derailing your topic.


    My wife Candie says she is a secret and nobody can meet her LOL. Just joking


    Casey And I are very much interested, maybe you can start a new thread about it.

    We are game for whatever......
