  1. "Lest We Forget" GCPE58 was made by someone else and is an archived virtual cache though, correct? How does that relate to this one? Or are we talking about different caches with the same name?
  2. Yes, that's got to be the one! It is within sight of the river. There aren't any other currently active caches within a mile or so, though, as far as I could tell. Closest one is GC40QC3. What was the unpublished one named? This one was definitely birthday-themed, one of the items inside was a package of birthday candles and the first log said something about a birthday boy - should have snapped a picture of it as well but I didn't think it was going to be hard to find anything out about it. :-) Maybe I'll E-mail the owners if their address is still good and let them know it was found, 9 years later. Thanks for the detective work!
  3. I have a question - not sure if this is the best place to ask or if it will be lost in the 3 pages of "discussion" I just slogged through. A friend and I accidentally found a cache today. No cell service where it was located for me to look it up on the app, so I snapped a couple of pictures of it and figured I'd check it out and log the find when I got home. I can't find it. It does not show up on the map. I found a reference to project-gc and tried looking it up there with no luck, either. Couldn't find the username, as well. I don't remember the last time the log was signed, but it was years ago. Only two entries in the log, too. Here are the pictures. I thought caches were never removed from the system, only archived? I signed the log and we replaced the cache. It was pretty damp, but in remarkably good shape considering the years it had been hidden.
  4. I'll second that. I had to use IE to send an e-mail. [shudder]
  5. There's a menu add-on for Opera that does this stuff for you automatically..
  6. Well, I did sign up for a year's membership last night using the online method. Just waiting to be granted all the benefits, now. I would assume that will be Monday?
  7. [stupid newbie question] I don't have the option of viewing off-topic. Is it because I'm not a paying member, or am I missing something?
  8. I just picked up a Legend C online for less than $210 after Garmin's $50 rebate and $15 first-time buyer discount on buy dot com. No affiliation with that retailer, just relating that you can get them for a lot less than list if you do a little looking. I'm very pleased with it.
  9. Try hunting some Benchmarks. I know there are loads of them around my area, and they're something different. It's neat to find one and realize that it probably hasn't been seen by another person for many, many years.
  10. In the original datasheets, the original is listed as being "SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL" while the reset is not. I would interpret that to mean that the original is in fact superceded. How DID they find the original in 1995, in that case? I think that I'll wait to change the logs until I get a chance to go back and check out the situation and I'll look around for both marks, in case there were two. I see that the reset was logged by Waldo's Revenge in 2004. Thanks for the responses!
  11. I went hunting for a benchmark today near where I work, on my bicycle. http://www.geocaching.com/mark/details.aspx?PID=OC0738 I didn't find it, but I was close. I left a note to that effect in the log. Looking for the next nearest one, I found the same benchmark listed as reset, in a separate listing with it's own log. Don't know how I missed it when I found the first listing, but anyway. http://www.geocaching.com/mark/details.aspx?PID=OC0739 My question is - should I move my comment from the original benchmark's entry to the reset benchmark's log? I would assume that the original is now superceded by the replacement, and that it occupies the exact same location as the original. This would have been my third find. I like this kind of a hunt, and plan on finding more. It makes a nice complement to hunting for caches.
  12. Wow, and I just logged my first one today. It was an easy one that I have known about since I was a kid, but it was getting late and I wanted to get started. More will follow, I'm sure.
  13. Found a few caches several years ago but got away from the hobby. Just got a Legend C and plan on going out and participating more now. It's a fun way to get out and get exercise while seeing places you'd not otherwise see.
  14. I just got one of these from Buy.com - for less than $210, IIRC. Garmin is doing a $50 rebate plus first time buyers at buy.com get $15 off. Not an employee of Buy, just relating what I fouind to be the best price going. I had previously used a Garmin aviation gps, but it is old and pretty cumbersome. The Legend C is leaps and bounds beyond my old unit - very nice! Now, if it would stop raining, I'd like to get out and look for some caches.
  15. Amateur radio operators can do this with APRS. The position packets can even be tracked on the web in real-time.
