  1. "I before e except after c." Take the time to dream up your own cache schemes. That will make the disappointment all the sweeter when you find out 10 other people had already dreamed it up. My answer is #5, "Idon't care."
  2. The standards are far too low now. quote:I'm probably stepping on lots of toes, but someone needs to tell the emperor he has no clothes. This is out of hand, cache placement is critical to the survival of this game, if the cache meets the rules posted on this site, then it should be approved. Who cares if the cache is 20ft, 200ft, or 2000ft from another cache? Maybe it is a cache rich area. If you want to find something to pick up every ten feet, join a litter patrol, because that's what 75% of caches are... dump and run garbage in nondescript locations. I think more people leave the game because they have grown tired of finding the typical barely hidden box of junk. [This message was edited by GeoPrincess on December 31, 2002 at 10:58 AM.]
  3. Someone will steal these things right after they were logged by someone they hold a grudge against. Deleting legitimate finds would probably subject any other caches you have placed or place in the future to an unhappy fate. In a later post you said you want people to log their find as a note until someone else logs a note. That's preposterous.
  4. How come everyone else is always subjected to these stupid little p*ss*ng matches? Why post notes to twenty or more caches when the issue could have been addressed with one e-mail to a site administrator?
  5. quote:Originally posted by Rubbertoe:I'm just saying I can see why the "cave people" would be concerned with a group of people from another hobby, with apparently little interest in the actual cave, suddenly coming to their cave in large numbers - looking for stuff. All they would have to do is rate the cache 3.5 or higher and that would automatically limit the total number of visitors to fewer than 6, because everyone knows that 99.9% of geocachers are lazy couch potato wimps.
  6. quote:Originally posted by Greenjeens:"Mr. Greenjeans" was a sidekick of Captain Kangaroo, a morning kids show host in the 50's and 60's. Mr. Greenjeans was this wierd, crotchety, farmer character as I remember. Mr. Greenjeans was Captain Kangaroo's "special friend." (You never saw a "Mrs. Kangaroo" or "Mrs. Greenjeans", did you?)
  7. Realwindpig was the winner. Bet he's in Hog Heaven right around now.
  8. quote:Originally posted by Clown Knife:A restaurant is one thing, trying the unit in the field in real tree cover is another. Try it in the woods, then report back with results. Clown Knife, you should take that advice with your MeriPlat. It seems to me wkendrvr is very happy that he purchased the Legend and thinks it "kicks butt."
  9. Geocaching should be banned in Germany.
  10. quote:The Vista has a electronic compass, and a better screen, plus if you are a garmin fan the rubber band map page. Garmins seem to be able to handle tons of waypoints being stored better than the Sport track. (Less screen clutter) That's one of the options you can set on the Vista. You can clutter your screen up really good with the maximum detail displayed.
  11. quote:Originally posted by michael80l:Since i started geochaching there was a new post every couple mins. Now the forms don't get used but every month lets get some more post up people No, the "forms" aren't worth saving, but "U" are, so get thee to church pronto!
  12. quote:Originally posted by 15Tango:Darn, I forgot to study (ha, ha, ha)!!! Hahaha! So did 95% of the others. Next, one of them will start an "Edit" thread, because they don't grasp that concept either.
  13. quote:Originally posted by BLOODANGEL86:container that is has anyone seen/placed one smaller then a 35mm film container? Yes. Much, much smaller.
  14. Thanks so much for that warm and inspiring post. Merry Christmas to you, as well.
  15. quote:Originally posted by BrianSnat:I have the Vista and like it a lot. I thought you had a Legend?
  16. quote:Originally posted by Rubbertoe: Deform my head! Hahaha. I made Rubbertoe look just like an elf from The Lord of the Rings. What a shame we can't save them to post here.
  17. quote:Originally posted by wimseyguy: is "Ravel's Bolero" a good or a bad hint? He's telling us that his cache is a tedious exercise.
  18. quote:Originally posted by jogps:I have a question for GeoPrincess why would you want to ask all of these questions under a different log in name? Geocaching and the Leaderboard count them the same way . What questions? I reorganized the Top 25 Leaderboard to reflect finds of actual caches. I didn't change any numbers. All I did was subtract the number of hides and locationless caches from the total. This name represents me. I made the list. My partner did not. The name we cache under represents both of us. Clear? quote:What is your motive other than to try mess with every body heads that has worked very hard to get where they are at. What's your problem? I wanted to see what the leaderboard would look like without hides or locationless caches included. That's all. I thought it might interest others. I see that your position on my list is the same as on the regular leaderboard even without your 108 locationless finds.
  19. I don't think it is appropriate, but what is everyone getting bent about? How would a little kid know what a wrapped condom was?
  20. quote:Originally posted by Show Me the Cache: While you are busy classifying, how would you classify the concept of combining cache finds with a partner under one name to reach the expressed goal of reaching the Top 25? To whom were you referring? It couldn't be us; we cache together and log together. Quote RATED: Dirty smelly wet socks with holes in them.
  21. quote:Originally posted by Team GPSaxophone: I wouldn't say that 13 caches difference in over 1400 is leaving someone 'in the dust'... Did you miss the drama? It was like the CCCooperAgency was standing still. BruceS was hundreds of finds behind and caught up and passed the CCCA team in a blur. It was amazing to watch.
  22. There was an article in our local newspaper last week that certain brands of marine TV antennas are known to interfere with GPS reception. The article didn't mention the brands; it just recommended that you should turn off the power to the marine TV antenna and see if GPS reception improves. The article said if GPS reception improved, the owner should contact the manufacturer of the TV antenna.
  23. quote:Originally posted by georgeandmary:Who is geoprincess? No hides or finds since June? My partner and I log our finds under our joint caching name. We hope to qualify for the Top 25 list one day in the future, but that's a long way off.
  24. quote:Originally posted by BrianSnat:I think hides are legitimately included in the leader stats. Heck, if it weren't for those who like to hide caches, there wouldn't be any for us to find. That's so true. I think the Leaderboard should have a separate section devoted to Hides, so that the leading hiders could receive the recognition they are due.
  25. I was wondering how different the Leaderboard would look if hides and locationless caches were removed from the totals. Here's what I found: BruceS has left the CCCooperAgency in the dust. Name/RealFinds BruceS / 1416 CCCooperAgency / 1403 jogps / 1159 stayfloopy / 1092 Southpaw / 937 DLiming / 787 ShowMeTheCache / 758 BassoonPilot / 726 Team "Wyle E" / 693 geo13 / 693 FerosFamily / 681 Moun10Bike / 668 Team Sand Dollar / 653 wolfmann / 631 explosis / 596 ladybuggers / 572 oregone / 570 robertlipe / 569 The Lil Otter / 568 roadrunners / 552 Hazard / 546 georgeandmary / 537 RonStreeter / 532 Kevin & Susan / 515 barondriver / 480 CCCooperAgency does lead in the Locationless category, having claimed 180 Locationless finds. The Top 25 names on the Leaderboard average almost 50 locationless finds each. 4 of the Top 25 have claimed more than 100 Locationless finds. 8 have claimed 10 or fewer Locationless finds, including 3 (geo13, The Lil Otter, and wolfmann) who have claimed 0 locationless finds. Wow!
