  1. Existing caches will need to permitted and stickered once we get the materials in, but they shouldn't have to be moved unless they're in a protected location or if the area surrounding them is damaged.

    Thank you for your quick response NappingBears.

    I have one cache over in Fort Dupont and I will monitor this thread for any new information.



  2. for those of you planning to attend the sunday meet & greet as well, the place/coords have changed so make sure to update before heading down.  i'll be seeing most of you on saturday so can give you the new info if you need.


    ski, long time no see, hope all is well.  :)  might want to put a note on the cache page for folks not to take it.  not too long between now and the 12/13th so we should be able to rescue it and have one of the NJ folks bring it back.

    So let me get this right... you want me to carry an antler in a WMA back to my car!!! While wearing a gorilla suit :)





    What's the big deal? I heard you dress that way for every cache attempt. :D

  3. Yes this cache is definitely "road trip" worthy and the other caches in the area were ok too.


    I was hoping one of you NJ/NY guys/gals that are heading down next month could bring back the Moose Antler TB back with you and hide it in NJ. I messed up, because it was supposed to stay in Jersey. B)

  4. We just got back from our Niagara Falls vacation today.


    The good:

    No crowds, restaurants empty, no traffic

    Falls were great

    New casino and hotels just opened

    Fallsview rooms are available this time of year


    The bad:

    Major attractions are closed for the year... Maid-o-mist, Behind the Falls, Cave of the Winds etc...

    Everything is expensive

    Some Niagara Parkway construction north of the falls.

    Icy parking lots and sidewalks in the mornings.


    Search zip code L2G 3W7 for the local caches including my favorite called Power Vista. It is a webcam themed cache from inside a power plant self tour where you electronically send a virtual postcard from the visitors center back to your home e-mail address.

  5. I have seen some ammo cans where the lid can shift a little to one side while it's open. When this happens the lid can still be closed, locked, and look ok, but there will be a gap on one side that will let water in.

  6. I have two MOCs in the same park down here in Cape May. Both are very hard and would probably not be suitable for the usual tourist or family cachers that frequent the area. I only had the best interests of the wildlife area and the safety of geocaching visitors in mind when designating the caches as MOC.

    When the proposed trail upgrades occur in that park I will probably discontinue the MOC designation.


    Most of my favorite caches have been micros - whether hidden far in the woods or bored into a hole on a telephone pole. Many micros are very clever. The power outlet on the side of the building may not actually carry any power - but a cache!

    Bored into telephone poles or power outlet on the sides of the buildings? Both are illegal if a utility company owns them. How do they get approved?

  8. I think you guys all hit the nail right on the head.


    Creative micros in urban locales (did I just use locale?) or pretty crowded places that require stealth are usually a fun challenge to either locate or retrieve.


    Just my $ .02.

    If you are questioned by the authorities too many times for looking suspicious in heavily crowded areas it doesn't seem like a fun challenge anymore. :huh:


    There is a new micro cache in SJersey hidden at the entrance to an underwater highway tunnel next to a security fence? Why? The police have better things to do than question a guy like me poking around the mouth of a major thoroughfare with an electronic device. (I posted a archive request for that one/ it's still active)


    There are also caches down here in huge parks with large wooded areas, but the owner chooses to hide micros under playground equipment instead. :huh:

  9. Why stop there? You could become the mysterious and enigmatic "s" :P



    I like the "S" username Floopy, but don't you already have a big "S" emblazoned on the costume you wear underneath your regular clothes? :P

  10. Are you related to downhill or cross-country?



    Maybe its water vs snow?





    It has nothing to do with water,snow, or skiing and everything to do with my Polish last name.

  11. Maybe you should have dropped the ski and went with NJ.

    Nah.......Too many bad things are associated with NJ:



    Traffic Circles

    Toxic Waste
