  1. You might try this address: Groundspeak 15600 NE 8th Street, Suite B1 Bellevue, WA 98008 It's where to send subscriptions, should be the right address. quote: Take the direct route. Email Jeremy/Groundspeak and ask. That is, if you just want to surprise Jeremy & gang. Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.

  3. I showed up on the boards just about when you guys were really lathered up & maybe I sould have kept my typewriter silent & let y'all have some fun... quote:Look at us...we search for happy-meal toys hidden in the woods using a handheld gadget that relies on a billion bucks in military hardware. It's all downhill from there...might as well embrace the absurdity of it all. This site got me turned on to a new RASH (thanks Majicman). I got my hubby to buy me a GPS & while I waited for it to show up, I read as many of the forums as my two very young children would allow. I've had more fun than I ever thought possible with a computer; I've never been one for chatrooms, don't surf the net a whole lot, etc. Chastising you lot was just a bit of fun for me & I didn't intend to upset the applecart so early into my new RASH (thanks majicman). We all must decide for ourselves how much sharing is an Acceptable Risk...Hope I didn't go too far.. Now, what does RASH mean again?? Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.
  4. quote: THEN COMES THE BAD COP! Mother Gootz chastises us for our behavior She says; “You’re acting stupid, you look like a bunch of immature adolescents”. “Get back to work… no time for profile photos”. You see, if you take every other letter in “Mother Gootz”, it spells “Mt Egoz”. Get it? Mount Egoz. The peak of mount Egoz is where the space center on Trafalmador is located. It’s like Cape Canaveral is for us. It is from Mount Egoz that the Trafalmadorians are staging the invasion. So by pretending to scold us for our bad behavior, Mother Gootz is just driving us to our own ruin. Okay, I'm caught! I'm laughing so hard I'm crying & trying not to wake up my 8 month old. Time to go back to Mount Egoz and tell my fellow Trafalmadorians what's been happening here. Your friend Mitsuko surely will return to cause you more pain & suffering; that's the influx of testosterone you feel every time her profile reappears. THEN, just when you think you can't take it anymore & need to reliquish some of that guy juice on the forums, she'll up & leave you to return back to the sanctuary of our homeland. This is so much fun!!! Never thought I'd get so involved in chat rooms & forums when I decided to a little "treasure hunting"! Thanks again everyone for making a stay-at-home mom's life a little more interesting! Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.

  6. I didn't know that site existed, though I'm not too worried about it at this point. Similar thought although not exactly the same is: Why does Geocaching show a "find" when you attach a note to a page? I sent a message as directed for an event cache. Now my cache page shows that one as found. The event isn't until August. Any suggestions? Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.
  7. I just picked one up attached to a CD case & it's mission is printed on the front. http://www.geocaching.com/track/track_detail.asp?ID=5728 He'll be making his way west in a few months. I did write to the owner to ask permission to keep him awhile until we take a trip to Pac NW in October. Hopefully, your TB's will receive the same courtesy from other cachers. God Luck.

  9. I'm new to Geocaching & have done only urban cahces so far, but the question & responses have been very thought provoking. For now, now weapons, no pepper spray, just a sense of adventure & a family who make enough noise to scare off any predator and/or fellow geocachers! This may be an issue if we go for more rural caches, so I'm glad for the discussion. Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.
  10. quote: Looks like it was a temporary disk space problem according to the thread mtnsteve pointed out. As for the other monkey business. It's just that none of us have ever seen a woman before. Thanks, I emailed admin & was given the same answer VERY quickly. Those things happen. I do love the monkey business, even if I do carry on... Green-eyed monster comin' out I suppose, gonna be 40 soon. Enough said, got a third cache yesterday. I LOVE THIS GAME/HOBBY/PASTIME, whatever! Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.

  12. Now I surf the forums, looking for any information that might help me in my quest. I get my kids outside, even in the summer heat of Houston. My husband & I have something new to talk about & having fun together. Life is much better thanks to Geocaching; think I'll get ready to go hunting now! Bye!

  14. Thanks for the tips! Although my kids are too young (2 1/2 & 8 mos.) for most of these suggestions, we can try a few as they get older. For now, Mom & Dad will have to remember to track the car! Happy Geocaching! Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.
  15. How about "Waterboy" for Adam Sandler fans? Isn't he carrying a couple of buckets? Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.
  16. I don't like the word hobby because it sounds like needlepoint or stamp collecting. Neither of these are bad things, just dull sounding! MG Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.
  17. Is there a thread that I can post to in order to share that we found our first (2) caches today without you guys falling al over yourselves over Mitsuko??? Not that I don't enjoy the posts; they've kept me in stitches! But REALLY fellas, turn down the testosterone for a minute (go ahead & nail me now) & let me ask this sort of serious question: I'm having problems loading a photo onto my cache page & a found log. I've followed the directions, loaded an avatar successfully, but no luck on the pic. I would love an opportunity to show off my kids! Your help is greatly appreciated & I'll leave you all to drool over Mitsuko's new profile picture! Sure is great to see how many men can make fools of themselves while trying to one-up each other! Thanks for the laughs! Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.

  19. Let's see if this avatar thing works...Sorry, Kije, you'll have to wait & see a pic once I've officially found a cache. You can be assured however that I don't look anything like Mitsuko! Houston is HOT this time of year, but you are certainly welcome to visit on your way to NJ! Fairy tales & happy trails help old women stay young.

  20. I found Geocaching not quite 2 weeks ago & waiting for my Magellan Sportrak Map to arrive via UPS (tomorrow?) I was checking out a sweepstakes on another site & then clicked on this page. Needless to say...I got hooked! My husband thought I was outta my mind, but then he started surfing around here & ordered the GPSr himself! We'll probably do most of our caching as a family, but I also plan to do some with just the kiddos, when I can cache hunt during the week. So, cheers to the ladies AND Thanks EVERYONE for delightful & humorous postings that have kept me entertained while I wait to get out there & really become a bonafide GEOCACHING NUT. Okay, to be honest, we tried to find a cache at a park nearby without the GPSr, but I'm not logging as not found because we were LON/LAT handicapped! I'm sure we'll be logging some finds shortly!
