  1. Let me see if I get this right. We HIDE a container from view, in a place that is not heavily traveled - the better the hiding spot, the better the game. No specific directions are given as to the exact placement of the container or the precise route to travel to it. The instrument used to locate the container REQUIRES you to search X amount of square feet around the spot, uncovering POSSIBLE hiding spots as you wander. And we have people concerned about stepping on grass, lifting rocks, bending branches, yadda, yadda, yadda? Seems like a conflict of interest to me. Maybe we should make a rule that caches can only be placed in sand-dunes. Nope, that won't work, can't disturb the native bugs. How about only searching by helicopter. Can't do that either - noise pollution.

  3. Maybe the company has only 1 employee, or maybe ALL their employees geocache and this is a group TB.
  4. Maybe you can figure out a way to get a TB instead of just your name. See this.
  5. Chloew got me. I DOES depend on the proper definition. But I still think my way is funner. As far as the Northern most 48, I remember reading something about that spot and thinking how cool it would be to see it. Alzheimers is setting in.

  7. OK Steak N Eggs, I'll bite. North - Maine South - Florida East - Maine West - Oregon (????) How did I do?

  9. Whidbey Walk: 100% Since the Alutian Islands span 180* E/W, Alaska is the farthest west AND east. It is also the farthest north. Hawaii is the most south (Key West is most southern of the continental 48). [This message was edited by Attila on June 13, 2002 at 03:44 PM.]

  11. OFF RODE: 50% (love your Jeep picture) Hint: Florida ain't one - sorry.
  12. The Leprechauns: 75% - not bad. civilwarranger: 50% - keep trying. mwelch8404: 50% - close, but... [This message was edited by Attila on June 13, 2002 at 03:48 PM.]
  13. I've asked this question to many people, including a Geography teacher, and have stumped them all. So, lets see who can get it. RULE: this is not open book - just what you already have learned - it's more fun that way. Which states (of the 50 United States of America) are the furthest east, west, north, and south?
  14. What a GREAT geocaching handle/name/moniker for someone in the NW - "Bigfoot". Surprized nobody has thought of it. BTW, about 20 years ago prints were found at Camp Steiner east of Salt Lake City. It is a Boy Scout Camp and caused quite a stir. I saw casts of the prints.

  16. Well, I'm just a Noob, but I believe that if you can't maintain the cache - including verifying it's existance from time to time - you should make it virtual. I've already seen several listed that the placer said: "Just passing through, stuffed a bunch of junk in a zip-lock bag and hid it - good luck". Boy, that makes me REAL excited to go search for someones discarded trash. I would e-mail the placer and ask if you could recover it for them and have them archive it. Nicely of course.

  18. If you have arrived at the waypoint, but did not actually locate the cache, can you log it as a find? This site brings up the question. I just returned from the area & realized that some serious preparation is needed to look inside the cache box. But, several people have logged finds just by getting to the entrance of the cave. Is this proper?
  19. How about PVC pipe - like you get at sprinkler/plumbing supply stores? I'm thinking of getting some 6" pipe, glueing the cap on one end and leaving the other cap free to be opened. You can paint it any color you want and create it any size you want.
