  1. I would say the signature you saw in the log was from a "Beta Tester" another cacher along when the cache was hidden. In my case i'd settle for a smiley instead of ftf anyday.
  2. You can leave it in another cache, but why not just keep it and see how many more signature items you can collect?
  3. It appears it is just a signature item from a previous cacher. Just his trademark item. It's yours to keep. From the cache log: I decided to go after this cache while staying in a nearby RV Campground on our way to California from Maine! A very clever cache hide, indeed!! One thing is for sure, in the search for this one, many 'muggle' eyes are upon you....TFTCSL I left my signature geocaching 'Silver Bullet' here.
  4. When you start really enjoying the sport for what it is. And dont mind the ever so often "DNF".

  6. Well if you look on the Geocaching maps, You should be able to narrow it down to the location you were in when you found the cache. Then once you find the general area, look at the caches around there and see if any look familiar. Chris - KA7CJH
  7. I do beleive that once a cache is "Archived" then the area is open to a new cache. You may want to ask the previous cache owner ih they plan on replacing the former cache. If not, get yours ready to be placed.
  8. Wow is all I can say. I just re-downloaded the .kml file from "www.geocaching.com/kml/buildnetworkkml.aspx" and it works. Lets hope it keeps working. Did a Google search for "Geocaching KML" and clicked the first one.
  9. Check your local Radio Shack as well. Thats where I got my USB to Serial cable. Works great on my new netbook.
  10. why not see if the GPS owner has any hides of his own and post a note on one of them? He's bound to see that. Then once you have made contact just remove the note. Chris - KA7CJH
  11. Mine is www.myspace.com/ka7cjh I really need to update it and add some caching content to it. Chris
  12. I have been trying to leave un-activated travel bug tags in my newer caches.
  13. Looks like an electrical box cover painted to match the pole it's attached to. Bet there are a few magnets on the backside holding it in place. I like those caches over the ones under the aprons.
  14. He may just be the type of person who enjoys the hunt. And could care less about his number count. There are alot of folks out there who just like finding caches but never log them on-line.
  15. The thanks goes to Keystone. I asked this same question awhile ago and he answered it for me.
  16. Pick a cache in the area where you are interested in looking for archived caches. Open the cache page. Under "Mapping Options," click on the link for the Geocaching.com Map. Pan and Zoom the map to the area to investigate. Check the box at the lower left of the map that says "List Archived/Disabled Caches." Finally, click "Identify" in the radio buttons below the map, then click on the map. If there are any archived caches, they will be shown with numbers on the map, and the corresponding cache links will show up in the list of caches below the map.
  17. Pretty cool software. Works great on my video Ipod. I like how easy it is to view the hints too.
  18. You can go back to the table of contents or hints screen on Mobipocket by clicking the little "house" icon on the screen
  19. I thought the same thing. My idea was to have the operator figure out a simple puzzle in order to get a correct radio frequency. Then they would use some dtmf tones to play a recording. The recording would tell the final coord's.. I'm just wondering what kinda puzzle to use ???? Any ideas?? Chris KA7CJH
  20. Here is what your looking for.. Pick a cache in the area where you are interested in looking for archived caches. Open the cache page.

  22. If you want to add sound or a video clip, then please just ad a link to the page.
  23. My personal best is 49 in one 12 hour day. But I was with another cacher and we drove all over Sacramento. My role was to act as a navigator/ cache info reader. Geo Spyder will know what im talking about... :-)
  24. Here in Reno we had a LPC, that i thought was real cool.. It wasn't in the typical location so it made you think. I was almost ready to give up when my brother asked me if that could be the cache? And after further examination it indeed was. I think the clue should have been something like think out of the box. And you'll hold your head high after you find it. LPC's give cachers of all calibers the chance to find caches. This thread is almost as bad as the "Hate Micros" one we had a while back..

  25. Which method did you use? Just curious..
