  1. Hello everyone,


    I place Magnifi-mint (GCGQGR) behind the Royal Canadian Mint many years ago, it has been muggled, replaced, moved, moved again, muggled, etc... and once again it has found itself AWOL!!


    The cache


    I would love it if a local cacher (preferably one that has found it before) could fo an check on it. From what I can understand the wall it's tucked in may or may not have fallen down. It may be buried or just placed out of reach by a previous cacher. Can I have someone go to the site and snap a photo of the wall for me.. I can then highlight where I recall it being and have them check on it.


    I would really appreciate this, I am in the Canadian Forces and now posted to Calgary. I promised I would keep care of this with the help of local cachers and they agreed to help out when it was first placed. It's almost 11 years old and I from what I understand is in the top 1000 pre loaded Magellan caches(?).


    Thanks a lot, if necessary I'll pay for it to be replaced with a new cache.



  2. Feel free to drop me a line.


    I have lived here a year and haven't really had any "oompf" to go caching. Maybe with a partner it might get my butt off the couch to get get some.


    Oh, and I have one of those hard to park four wheeled things as well.

  3. malhereusement, non. Il sagit de suivre les rapports de cache est deduire nous meme ce que des abbreviations veut dire!! (j'en suis sur que tu a deja verifier dans le forum "francais"?)


    J'ai trouvé ce site. Peut etre il y a des infos.



    Les geocoins et trackables sont tres simple. Inserer et "logger" pour suivre sont progres.



  4. sirmalloc: I like what you have planned.. you should check out the blog for "Geopher Lite". He has had a few issues with Groundspeak and getting his program to be accepted by Apple as well.


    Celtsfans: Check that app out in the app store.. Geopher lite


    I couldn't find a topic that discusses using the Apple iPhone 3G for geocaching, so I thought I'd start one. I don't have an iPhone yet, but I might be convinced to buy one if it would be economical enough. Some of the questions I have are:


    1. What would it cost per month?


    2. What applications are available to support geocaching on the iPhone 3G?


    3. Can the iPhone 3g be used for geocaching when there is no cellphone or wi-fi coverage?


    I'm sure there are other questions, but those should get the ball rolling.




    While the cost per month varies based on your rate plan, it's pretty in line with other smart phone offerings that include an unlimited data plan. I am currently in the process of programming a full featured geocaching application for the iPhone, and it does have features that'll enable use when out of range of cell service. We've got a site up with a list of features and some screenshots, so take a look and let me know what you think. www.geodeapp.com

  5. Even easier, would be to have the local RCMP/OPP/Local police detachment create an account, set their location in the profile, then get a once a week email of new caches in the area.


    I am sure there are people working in the 911 call center that have some slow evenings, they could even do it as a secondary duty...

  6. Funny this would show up the day after I drop in to Ottawa to visit my cache. I was reading through my logs last night and actually found a page in it written by a police officer who was called to the cache by someone who thought it was a "drug cache". He left a nice note, replaced the cache and even signed with the police report #. At the same time, the person who called the police left a kind note explaining why they had done so. I think I recruited two new cachers that day!!


    It would be nice if caching were more prominent and that law enforcement officials were aware of them. It will take time, but we can spread the word bit by bit.

  7. Hmmm. I guess we should check around for events during our holiday. We will also be in the Maritimes starting this weekend. We're only bringing our signature tags and our 'stamp' though :lol:


    Make sure you stop by my caches on the way through. If you have the time I highly recommend the falls.

  8. Others can confirm this if I am wrong but doesn't google maps input some kind of error to make things more challenging?


    You may be thinking you have the correct spot, but press F5 (refresh) and see if the cache moves on the google map.


    Good luck!!

  9. Othum.. I think that is a great idea!!


    I have done that before for hiking but never thought of doing it for caching! I hope there is no mention of how long you are gone for, as that would lead criminals to decide if your vehicle is an easy hit or not.


    Depends on where you cache I suppose...

  10. In Quebec, they have just passed a hands free law for cellphones. A very good thing if you ask me. I also find it quite liberating to use my handsfree in the car now. I have seen studies though that point to the lack of concentration when on a phone versus the hands busy aspect of it.


    stagunner, I drive 8 hours back to NB from Montreal every couple of weekends, just for the weekend, then back on Sunday. It's very hard to just "DRIVE" as you state... it can be long and tedious driving that distance. I had to do it with no music two weeks ago due to electrical issues in my car, that was SOOOO long..


    What I am saying is that forever, there have been electronics in cars helping people. I'll admit they contribute to accidents, but to ban them entirely is just a silly thought altogether.


    Just look at the car companies, the integration of electronics has moved up in leaps and bounds in the past few years and I don't suspect one keen premier (looking for attention)is going to alter that!!
