  1. A rule of thumb that I use is that in "cache-saturated areas" it should take at least 15 minutes of walking or hiking to get from one cache to another. Also, I like to find new areas where a cache could be hidden- a place someone hasn't thought of before. But some areas, like parks and forests, are big enough for even many caches to co-exist.

  2. Ok... so... (grabs pen and pad of paper) the people who currently like or are OK with the idea of a "Off-Topic" thread are: -Alpha Operator -Markwell -gnbrotz -gwho -seneca -clayjar ...well, this sure beats the living daylights out of the reception of my "Whale-Seeking Cambodian-Slave Labor Assembled $150 million (tax money) CFC-Emmitting Radioactive Missile" project proposal.

  4. I'd just use a good-old engraving tool to mark my unit. Wow, that e-treck is PURDY! I want one! CODENAME: ALPHA OPERATOR daedalus://govlink/secure/majestic/12.12.12/ops/throne/AO MAJESTIC-12: THRONE G6 LEVEL AGENT http://www.planetdeusex.com
  5. The accuracy might be good, but wow, that keypad looks as chinsey as hell! Offered to fix at no charge- not too shabby, I must admit. (I'm a real b*****d when it comes to warrenties, service, etc...)

  6. YIKES! Well, here's what I suspected at first: 1. Are you SURE that the charger is made for NIMH batteries? If you are using a NiCad charger, that could be a BIG PROBLEM. 2. Did you check to make sure that the polarity (+- orientation) of the batteries are correct? The batteries might have gotten permenantly screwed up as well- use caution.

  7. I haven't heard many people have bad things to say about Garmin or their GPS units. I'm pleasantly surprised that there still exists companies that really do focus on making a product of the most exacting and excellent quality possible. What would be a good "upgrade" from the GPS-3 if I wanted a more sophisticated unit? I saw the Vs, but I also saw these "E-Trek" units that looked pretty nice (and compact!) as well.

  9. Yeah, I attribute most of the orb phenomenon to dust particles. I've seen people who got pictures with orbs and said "LOOK! PARANORMAL!" and I've seen people who got pictures with the exact same-looking orbs who said "Look. It was there and it was dusty as hell." Of course, there is usually a lot of the dust and debris in long-abandoned or isolated "spooky" places as well, adding to the psychological effect.

  10. I found a rather interesting web site called "Wierd New Jersey" at http://www.weirdnj.com/ . It's a pretty darn neat site. I'm from Pennsylvania, so I can't check out some of these places, but there are a few I'd like to see, like the abandoned "Demon's Alley" housing area, and I'd also like to explore the abandoned Jungle Habitat. Cool... CODENAME: ALPHA OPERATOR daedalus://govlink/secure/majestic/12.12.12/ops/throne/AO MAJESTIC-12: THRONE G6 LEVEL AGENT http://www.planetdeusex.com

  12. Well... it looks like a pretty nice chair... not to mention the nice tiling and... is that a stucco background? hmm... (CLI-CLICK!) CODENAME: ALPHA OPERATOR daedalus://govlink/secure/majestic/12.12.12/ops/throne/AO MAJESTIC-12: THRONE G6 LEVEL AGENT http://www.planetdeusex.com

  14. Wonderful! I'm pleasantly surprised at the support. I hope that the moderators or administrators consider this idea. (Well, it's not a very difficult procedure, to the best of my knowledge to add a new board to a system like this.) Like I said before, it would be an excellent place for everything else- intellectual discussions, conversations about current events and politics, and, of course, exchanging pictures of our pets.

  16. (This post was moved from the "general" area once it was brought to my attention that this would be a better area.) Hey, there are a lot of neat people here at the Groundspeak forums, and this is a great place to discuss (if not the only?) geocaching. However, has anyone ever thought about the addition of an off-topic board here on the Groundspeak forums? I frequent the OTF at planet Deus Ex, discovering it almost by accident, and I found it to be incredibly interesting and fun. Perhalps a place for "shooting the breeze" on the Groundspeak forums would be a good idea? -ALPHA CODENAME: ALPHA OPERATOR daedalus://govlink/secure/majestic/12.12.12/ops/throne/AO MAJESTIC-12: THRONE G6 LEVEL AGENT http://www.planetdeusex.com

  19. Hey, those look pretty darn good for a cache. Not only are they smaller and less cumbersome then an ammunition cannister, but at $1.50 each, they're pratically a steal! I think I'll order five of them, just hope they come with gaskets!

  21. It's a Petzl headlight! I got one of those, they're expensive but useful as all get out! (Now I just need the $500 to get a pair of first-generation NVGs...)
