  1. Finally a geocache event on a day I don't work. We'll have to see what's going on around that time. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  2. I think after taxes and hotdogs you would be down to $450,000. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  3. I hate people that think it's neat to trade dirty golfballs. Where are the caches with the new Nike balls? ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.

  6. I have yet to place my first cache and am very anxious to do so. There are two reasons I haven't placed one yet. 1) Several places that would be "good" for caches have another cache within .2 miles. I think there is no need to oversaturate an area. 2) The latest place I found (even bought an ammo box for) is a walk through tall grasses. I thought to myself that the small trail I followed would be quickly expanded and act like an arrow to the cache and irritate the local neighborhood (not mine). So I am still looking for a place, but my patience I feel, has saved some people getting irritated by geocachers. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  7. Jeremy you get a big ole sloppy kiss! ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.

  9. quote:Originally posted by ApK: quote:Originally posted by opey one: 3. At essence, geocaching is a hunt with a reward at the end. I have no problem taking a nice price I find at the end. If what I have in my pocket that day is a trade-down, oh well. I'll make up for it karmicly in another cache. If a cache hider has item that they'll be upset if it's traded down, the item should be sold at market, not put in a cache. ApK This thinking is why caches degrade. If you're not at least part of sustaining a cache, you're part of degrading that cache. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  10. I heard he's looking for a new hobby. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.

  12. Caches are supposed to be self-sustating and self-improving. When we leave a new pocket knife or flashlight, I see it as degrading the cache to replace it with 3 plastic toys. Trade toys for toys = good. Trade nice adult itmes for many toys = bad. Soon the cache is nothing but little toys, fine for the kids, but I didn't leave a new adult type item for the kids. The first adult to find the cache gets a nice suprise and everyone else gets a plastic frog if they want to trade. Yes I know, we don't have to trade. And many times we don't because there is nothing but toys in the cache. It is more fun though when we find a neat item and trade in kind. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  13. Someone wrote it would be okay to have an approx. number for the cache finds since it wouldn't be changing all the time. I just went to a cache that hadn't been logged for three weeks. I'm new and did around 40 caches last month. I think in active caching areas having counts serveral weeks old would no even be approx. I vote no. I want speed and will look to get an actual count. -Nurse Dave ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.

  17. We live in the NW of Oregon so Washington is close, but ocean on one side, California 6.5 hours to the south and Idaho 8 hours I think to the east with not much in between. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  18. I really likeds seeing the counts too, but anything that lessens server load and might let me use the state maps again I'm for. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.

  20. You seem to have missed the point brought up to you. You don't have to read the last posts. You don't have to look at the pictures. The warning about logs containing spoilers are meant for people like you that don't want the spoilers. I enjoy just getting to new areas but would rather not spend half an hour looking for a cache that's hidden in a plastic rock covered in dirt. I look at the log and pics because I like it if it saves me from the above. Almost eveything people get upset about (including me) and discuss it in the forums gets this reply, "Every one is different and some people like it that way and some don't." If you get so upset about reading spoilers, you shouldn't read the logs because they may contain spoilers because some people like spoilers. Look at the pictures after you find the cache and just look for frowny faces in the logs if you are worried it might not be there. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  21. I voted the last choice because there is a cache in Washington that I went to when there was supposed to be a travel bug there. There wasn't one. Fair enough sometimes people don't log them right away. I left one there. The next person to visit stated that there were no T.B. in the cache. Obviously somebody has been taking them out of the cache on purpose. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  22. What the heck are they cachew nut? ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.

  24. I don't expect every cache to have a view of the city or be next to a little visited waterfall, but I am a little disappointed when I have to walk next to a lot of trash or end up under a highway surrounded by broken bottles. Those caches are few, but I'd have rather sent my time looking for other caches. ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
  25. I must admit I'm very computer dumb when it comes to hardware and software. I'm just curious if there are any donations of computer type hardware that could be used by geocaching.com that could be added to what is already in use to improve the site performance. LKay and it sounds like many others involved in this sport are also involved with computers, and I know she regularly comes upon memory, hard drives, etc. that get put together to make computers that are given away to family. Any use for that stuff? ---I will stand out, I am a raven in the snow.
