  1. We used to have a cacher who logged "all" caches almost as soon as they were posted, several of these were FTF for me and there was no logs in the book when I found it but he claimed FTF as well, I went back to several of them and he had not signed any of them, I called him out on it and he did change the FTF to just another find although he never in fact singed the logbook. I started watching him and he had several 100 plus caches days covering couple hundred miles, he logged events and yet nobody I talked to ever met him. On "internet" logs he was amazing but the fact was he was just a liar and a loser who finally just went away.
  2. never mind, I think I will keep it!
  3. There is a "MEGA" event cache on July 25 to 27th in western Ohio. there will be over 1000 cachers there http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC4N58M_midwest-geobash-2014-10th-year?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=megaevents&utm_campaign=5-20-14
  4. Here is an "event" cache near you which is a meeting of local geocachers http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC5016G_decoration-day-western-reserve-national-cemetery?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=events&utm_campaign=5-20-14
  5. Do a search for "event" cache near your area, use the advanced search on Geocaching.com http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx
  6. I hate to sound "crude" but if you are not sure about hiding caches then you need to keep looking first. Just remember the caches you liked finding and use that as a guide to hide your own. We really don't need any more "guard rail" caches, those are nice when you are trying to find a 100 in a day but I rather have the ones that take you a couple hours to find.
  7. Humm, 8 caches found, all in 2007 in a 2 day period then nothing for 6 years?? just wanted to let people know before they donated a GPS!! A used GPS from from a local cacher should run about $50 or less
  8. What do you call a "good buy"? Cabelas has Etrex 30 bundle on sale this weekend for $249, (was $369)
  9. LOL, I was just checking my calendar and you had Sat March 26th and on my calendar that was a tuesday. But you corrected it between the time I first loaded the page and the time I posted. Anyway how do you feel about a couple tagging along for one or two days of your adventure?
  10. Where are you located?
  11. There is an Oregon 550 on sale at Cabelas right now for $299 ($150 off) I have seen the Oregon 450 sale for less then $200 at Cabelas from time to time, with Christmas coming up look for a sale but be ready to buy when you find a deal or they may sell out and usually no rainchecks

  14. Do a search on Ebay, you can find the original serial cables and also the USB ones as well.

  17. I have a Garmin Legend (original blue model) I will let go for $50 including cord to connect to computer and will include shipping too.
  18. Most of us only use the hints when we are really "stumped" and I like them to be progressive, start out with vague hints and end with dead giveaway clues, like I said we don't look unless we are really stumped. GPS's can be off more on some days, do you want a 1/1 cache that cannot be found at all?
  19. A new battery for the Garmin 205 can be found on Amazon.com for around $15, you can buy and download map updates for it from Garmin. Battery and map updates and for less then $100.
  20. Well next Saturday 3/3 Cabelas has the Oregon 450 on sale for $229, regular price is $399 so that is good deal. It is a doorbuster sale price, unknown if that price will be honored online, maybe just at the store.
  21. Sorry, didn't mean to upset you, I was in a deal last year to buy about 20 coins for a good price then I found out they were coins the seller had picked up from geocaches and thought he could simply sell them. I had to ask because most people do NOT activate their own coins unless they leave them somewhere in a cache. I have over 70+ coins and none are activated. Not many people want activated coins, but good luck in selling them.
  22. Are these your coins? or ones you collected from geocaches and kept? If they are yours then why did you activate them? you do know that lowers their value didn't you?
