  1. Congrats on 100, I'd tell you about mine, but I perdict it will not happen until June 25th or 26th. It will be in Maryland, but really should be in Michigan since that is where I do the majority of my caching. Make a sanity check.
  2. ....the clothesline was a micro..... Make a sanity check.
  3. ......both can be virtual ......having someone find your micro can be hard ......explaining to you wife where you have been is difficult Make a sanity check.

What exactly are you putting in the caches you find? I'll bet they are micros...... Make a sanity check.
  5. .....adding a trird or fourth partner makes it more fun. .....the smaller containers are better to find. .....they both take place at rest areas. .....it is dangerous to do on private property Make a sanity check.
  6. There has been a hedgehog siting........ ....it is fun to take picture of both to share with your friends.. Make a sanity check.
  7. Iwuzere, it's not that I don't encourage newbies in the sport, it's that I find it offensive that a newbie thinks that he/she knows so much about Geocaching that they can make their own rules. An example would be if I were to go on the ham radio boards you mentioned, and start trying re-invent some method of the process. I understand that it is a new hobby where you live, but someone has to start it, so maybe you should step up to the plate, and buy a GPS unit. You could be the pioneer geocacher on the Jersey islands. I truly do not appreciate your comments about me. Yes, I was rude. But I also think your reasoning is SO off the charts, rudeness is an acceptable reply, especially after you keep pushing on with the laziness of your idea. And I know you won't believe this, but I REALLY do understand what you are asking. You just don't like the answer that others have given you. I love this sport, and have help start 2 other cachers start by taking them out on hunts. I really do hope you can get geocaching going in your area, it sounds like a great place to be.

  8. Pros - wants to create more caches in a beautiful area. - seems enthusiactic about the game in general Cons - Cannot read rules - doesn't grasp the SIMPLE concept that GPS units are what the majority of the players of this game use to find caches, therefore they (we) need the co-ords. - too cheap to buy a GPS unit - wants others to do his/her job - is an inexperienced cacher (0 finds), yet wants to revolutionize the game - very insulting person Let me see if you can understand this if I put it other terms. I have been invited to play golf in the British Open. I show up with a duffle bag containing a rake, a billiards cue, and a bowling ball at the first tee. They won't let me play. Why? I was going to let it go, but you keep insulting me, so let the arrows fly. Make a sanity check.
  9. quote:Originally posted by Iwuzere: I think you've missed my point by a good 10-40 feet! 1) The clues would make up for it. 2) It's only a temporary inaccuracy - until someone gives the right numbers! I love #2. I am going to hide something, but I need somebody to find it so I know where it is. I agree with the fact you do not need a GPS unit to find caches. But I truly believe you need one to hide a cache, as it is an inherent part of the game. Your profile shows you have zero finds, so you haven't experienced what it is like to find a cache, therefore you do not have the basics of what a properly hiden cache with co-ords looks like. Even if it were someone that had a lot of experience in the game, it still wouldn't be different, co-ords need to be included in the description. I am not disagreeing with your method, if there were a site that had this type of game, it might be fun. But a GPS unit in the hiding of caches is what this game involves. Make a sanity check.
  10. Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons? Make a sanity check.
  11. Apology accepted Iwuzere, I am moving on. Was you are suggesting really does fall in the letterboxing realm. Dammit it Seneca, I was going to do a similar missing equipment post, but you beat me too it. I guess I won't be entering my 1988 Cadillac in the Michigan 500 this year. Make a sanity check.
  12. This guy is hilarious. He get's all pouty that he cannot hide a cache without a GPS, when a GPS is like, hmmmmm, let's see, about 99.99% of what the game is about as far as hiding caches. Then he disses us, and this site by saying there are too many rules, and that he'll move on. Wow, I'll miss whatever stimulating cache that a newbie who can't afford a GPS could bring to the game. See ya, don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out. Make a sanity check.
  13. Congratulations GC.com, and thats for the e-mail to get my lazy butt to vote! It is great site, and the fact that people can use it for free can play too is amazing. I still encourage people to become a charter member, but that is a personal choice! Make a sanity check.
  14. Although I have not had any troubles cacheing (outside a goose chasing me), this thread has inspired me to get a gun, with the appropriate license(s), and proper training. I have been on the fence with it for personal protection, but I now realize that I have been caching in some areas that may not have been as safe as I thought. Make a sanity check.
  15. GW, may not have been invited, but considering the other cacher that might have been in his spot, we are lucky. The other cacher couldn't have found a 1/1 virtual of George Washington on a dollar bill. Make a sanity check.
  16. That doll is too funny, thank you for the laugh! Make a sanity check.
  17. There was recently a post about someone's GPS being taken from them at Cedar Point in Ohio, for security purposes. Even if you were to get your GPS in the park, and mark a micro, future finder might get in trouble using their units. Just a thought. Make a sanity check.
  18. It sounds to me that the hider of the cache is a deranged lunatic and murderer. Whether or not the cache was actually hid, or even exsisted, isn't the point, it's the hunt that counts. Make a sanity check.
  19. When you spend more time trolling on the boards, then actually looking for new caches in your area. Make a sanity check.
  20. When you spend a lot of time searching for a 3/3 cache, only to trade for a golf ball, and then lose said golf ball the next day on your first drive on #1. Make a sanity check.
  21. My favorite find was a real log, split in two and hollowed out for the cache to go in. It was then held together by pencils, and placed next to another downed tree. The only way I found it was that the artifical lichen on top was a touch brighter then the local surrondings. It was a very inventive hide! Make a sanity check.
  22. Very cool! I recently announced our pregnancy by filling an ammo can full of diapers, and gave it to my folks telling them I thouhgt the cache contents were innapproprite! Congrats to you, I have been married 9 months, and love it (except that she doesn't like geocaching!). Make a sanity check.
  23. Ok, I'm a dork.......what is slashdot? Make a sanity check.
  24. I recently had on elderly gentleman ask me a slew of questions at a boat launch cache. I finally walked away from him, since he was getting rather upset at what I was doing. I don't think he believed me that I was "looking for trinkets" in the woods. Make a sanity check.
  25. That is a very interesting article. Thank you for sharing. It seems as the sport grows (and grows, and grows), we are seeing more of this. Make a sanity check.
