  1. i often like to leave hand made beaded bracelets. for the more difficult to reach sites i like to leave a handmade "Geo necklace" made with a pendant of bone, inscribed with a "primitive" geocacher, found those pendant pieces at a bead store. looking to have some coins made soon i hope, probably plastic or wood. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...
  2. unfortunately i am not selling mine. however like you i also learned on one, bought one on e-bay and still love it! check out e-bay, don't get caught up in a bid frenzy and pay more than a new one would cost, and beware of shipping cost too. that added to bid price can up it pretty high. i got mine basically brand new (used 3 times maybe by routes stored) for $105. total. i am happy. good luck have fun. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...
  3. hey, we're everywhere... here's another Park Ranger (Nevada), that encourages geocaching and getting out there! i also enjoy working with the local cachers so that caches are placed properly in our parks. i think a multi cache, with groups helping to do each leg, will give everyone a chance to experience the hunt. (you may even make the final coords a little off so EVERYONE has to hunt the last one). here's to Rangers... having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...
  4. ... i was discussing this with a friend and decided to open it up for discussion... if i made the "human shields" in Iraq a virtual cache, would they become a locationless cache during/after the invasion? i don't think they would be locationless as much as they would become a "multi-cache". what do you think? having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...
  5. ... not known to eat other snakes, but GREAT mousers. as previously stated definately NOT poisonous, however,... they can do a GREAT imitation of a rattler. when threatened they can vibrate their tails, and in dry leaves they sound exactly like the buzz of a rattler. good photos for identification, thanks for sharing.

  6. ... sounds good, up here in the north part of the state, we are in the process of starting a group. look for Great Basin Eastern Sierra Geocachers. no websites yet that i am aware of. would be nice to be in touch with our southern bretheren. keep us posted or drop us a line.

  7. ... actually CONTACTED Marin Parks (Open Space) to find if this is true? Would be a good start before taking action on removing caches etc... if it is true i like the idea of posting ghost caches, but instead post coordinates to the toilets in their parks, the park directors office, etc, places that will drive them crazy, lol. aaahhhh, GPS terrorism, think the possibilities, lol.

  8. ... i'd be honored to give him a personal tour of our fine firehouses here. heck i'm sure the boys will even invite him in for lunch, lol. good luck. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...
  9. ... but i couldn't stuff him in any of those itty-bitty little ammo cans. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...

  11. ... interesting thread. does bring up some points. i see some don't care where or how they walk, they're just gonna trample down the brush on the way to the cache without thought. then they blame the cache owner for putting it there. no, responsible cache hunting doesn't work that way. that's just having plain disregard for natural resources and habitat. step over, not on. step around rather than through. i cache in a desert environment mostly. this is ALOT more fragile than the woods. out here, 10 cachers looking for the prize makes a trail that will be seen for at least 5 years. i work as a park ranger, that is why we will be asking cachers who place in our parks to show us the sites soon. be responsible, tread light, cache stealthily. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...
  12. ... a Garmin 12, and really like it. i am not typically techno proficient, but i am learning to use it better everyday. i have thought about the Vista's/Legends series but i am a little wary of the clickstick feature. they dont seem to work as well as they should. plus they don't fit into your price range. you can (and probably will) upgrade in future. The Garmins are good units and have good customer service, definately an edge over Magellan. whatever unit you choose, you will have fun. good luck. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...
  13. ... be great! that and a Great Reno Balloon Race one also (or combined). wish i had time to put one together, will have to for next year. btw, wow, Ripon, haven't been there in 30 years. used to have family there. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...

  15. ... migratory birds. it is illegal to possess birds in part or whole (excepting game birds in season), dead or alive without state AND federal permits. so before you pick up that road kill waxwing... we won't EVEN get into possession of reptiles and amphibians! having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...

  17. ... as a county park ranger (and cacher), my agency just became concerned about this activity in our parks (we have 3 located currently within our jurisdiction). i went to a local cache event and chatted with other cachers about our concerns and theirs as cachers. we will be getting together soon to discuss ideas about policy (really not much different from Geocaching.com posted policies). i really enjoyed meeting fellow cachers, and their comments. this dialog will improve relations between cachers and those in my agency that may have knee jerk presumptions about this activity. i recommend, if an agency is reluctant to work with cachers, suggest planting a 1/1 cache and invite the ranger staff (or whoever is in charge of location) for a demo cache hunt, let them find the cache. it would probably help if you filled the ammo box full of donuts. jelly filled ones ... just kidding. the more they understand the activity, the more they may accept it. good luck. having to do what the voices in my GPSr tell me to do...

  22. ... i think i'll make a rubbing of it attempt to decipher any further markings. never seen any others around with "N A L S" stamped. probably local surveyers. thanks. having to do what the voices in my wifes head tell me to do...
  23. ... was heavily vandalised. standard metal disk in cement. all was legible was letters "N A L S" on top and at bottom "G P S" rest of stampings (if any) have been obliterated by vandals. anyone shed some light on this? thanks.... having to do what the voices in my wifes head tell me to do...
