  1. What about the lost and found attribute? I tried to do a pocket query for any hides with this one and the partnership attribute for about a 1000 miles and nothing came back. How do you finds caches with them?
  2. Here's my list of Nearby Events from London, Ontario. I'm hosting the Bayfield's Meet and Greet Event on 24th of August which is 75kms from my home and plan on attending the Ice Cream Summer Social event August 25th which is 32 kms from home as well as BaconWarrior's Birthday Bash September 28th which is even closer at 18 kms. None of which are on this list. For the most part, not saying they aren't as good to attend, but way would I want to know about an event 175 kms from home. Nearby Events Sittin' Round; Talkin' Cache 20 August 2013 190.59 km S - Ohio - United States A Month of Meet and Greets - #20 20 August 2013 269.43 km SE - Pennsylvania - United States 1/2 A Month Worth of Night Meet & Greets #3 8/20 20 August 2013 221.84 km SE - Pennsylvania - United States Bike To It Flash Mob 20 August 2013 194.27 km W - Michigan - United States August 20th Flash Mob Event 20 August 2013 286.66 km W - Michigan - United States A Month of Meet and Greets #21 21 August 2013 257.88 km SE - Pennsylvania - United States 1/2 A Month Worth of Night Meet & Greets #4 8/21 21 August 2013 221.84 km SE - Pennsylvania - United States An Ice Cream Social for Day 21 of 31 21 August 2013 190.57 km W - Michigan - United States Are You Still Sponge Worthy? 21 August 2013 292.92 km E - New York - United States The Eye Scream Social: Royal Oak 21 August 2013 173.56 km W - Michigan - United States Also, noticed that the nearby caches this week only go out as far 25 kms away from home and know that there were some published less then 75 kms from this past week. I used to get caches published out as far as Kitchener and Goderich areas, some 75 kms plus.
  3. The CO's logged a note regarding 18 caches (091-119) being archived because of a problem and then being moved. The next note is from Miss Jenn announcing the entire series is being archived. Sounds like a sledge hammer being used to drive a tack to me. I was wondering about that as well, and I'd sure love to get more information about it! Which, by the way is why I wish that people would keep their opinions on power trails, medians, and football teams out of this thread!! Thank you. I too was wondering about the axe coming down on the power trail when one moment you get a notice from the CO about some being achived and then Miss Jenn mostly a reveiwer comes out to say that they all are being achived. I had been watching this since Oct. last year and haddn't seen any indication of problems from the trail until recently. Even had e-mailed the CO's last week to let them know what our intensions were in regrads to doing the run and at that time they haddn't said anything about the situation getting to this point. I have booked airfare tickets for 4 to do this run and now have to figure another plan. So now it's up to Plan D. I thought that maybe a warning would have been a better idea from Groundspeak with a time limit as to achiving would have been a better way to go. Seen that there are others out there in the same shoes expecting a chance to do the trail. Just a little more notice in advance would have been nice I thought.
  4. One would wonder that maybe something should be said about the cachers going out in groups of 8 or more and leap frogging from one cache to another. This maybe the problems with the accidents or car issues. Maybe it should be mandatory for each cache container to be found by each group form the CO side, Just a thought as I could see that being a problem. On a personnal note I do hope the trail stays open and they get things resolved as I do plan a trip out that way soon and was just about to purchases the airline tickets until this mess showed and now not sure.

  6. ah big deal, hit complete the ET powertrail one day and log them all. then do the same thing again the next day and log them all again. and then again the next day. etc etc. won't even take 3 years to hit one million that way! Checking out a few of the stats and I was wondering about this one person who claimed to have found over 500 in one day and thinking it was impossible checked it out and it ends up he did the E.T powertrail. What a trail i'll have to make a trip of it.
  7. Wow! 1 million finds. I calculated it. If a cacher found 100 caches a day, it would still take over 27 years. Then I think i'll probably finds cache in a wheelchair by then, lol.
  8. This site should answer some of your numbers questions: http://cacherstats.com/ In short, the leader is approaching 50,000. Dave Ulmer placed the first geocache; Mike Teague was the first finder. Thanks addisonbr for the info and even looked myself up on cacherstats as well. I was kind've even amazed as to where I stood in the line up. Alamogul has been doing a lot of travelling to get over 45,000 finds. I could only imagine that many for myself someday. Also going back over the history page on GC, Mike Teague was the first cacher to find the first geocache. I had thought since they had collaborated in starting geocaching.com that they are friends and didn't think of him as the first finder. Also thanks to dfx on the gc codes and yes I do understand how it works, even more so now. Also I see now about the 1.2 million caches that are active and whatever archived that it would take a very long time to get 1 million find. Thanks everyone I really wasn't expecting as quick a response on these things. Now I can let my son know.
  9. This site should answer some of your numbers questions: http://cacherstats.com/ In short, the leader is approaching 50,000. Dave Ulmer placed the first geocache; Mike Teague was the first finder. Groundspeak wasn't around when the first few months of caches were placed; when they were eventually assigned spots in the Groundspeak database, the codes weren't assigned in strict chronological order. So many of the earlier caches might "look" out of order if they're sorted by waypoint.
  10. I don't know if this has been asked before but I would have thought so myself. I was just wondering and was asked by my son the other day who would have the most geocache finds to date and how many? Is there someone with over a millon finds? Also besides the orginal geocache team who would be or have been the first geocacher? Just me being curious. I was wondering why when the first cache was placed why is the gc code GCF? Why not GCA?
  11. Hi there I just wanted to know if anybody would know if Geocache Navigator would work with the LG Rumour 2 mobile phone with Bell Mobility as a server? Bell tells me that it has built in GPS and Mobile Brouwsing. But I'm still unable to get the Geocache site to load up properly to log onto site so as to use map from there for caching. After reading some of the comments I thought that this is maybe the way I should go for caching with my phone. Any help please as as i'm getting mad with the phone, pleaseeeeee.
  12. Concrats Ted, 3000 is alot and I can hardly wait to get to 500. Wow, feel so small now. Kidding concrats and hope we'll meet on the trails again.
