  1. The only journal , notes we keep are photos of cool or interesting sites, and cache containers.
  2. I wont make anyone join, sign up, or do anything out of the ordinary to find our very creative caches(all 4 of them so far). Creative caches are all we do with all the film containers that are spread all over the area I live in.
  3. Here is out GC tattoo. It is the lat long where we met we got these instead of a wedding ring. Our Lat Lon wedding tattoo's
  4. I like this cool little secret(not so much) Its now on my profile with a little twist LOL
  5. Yeah, if your workplace will pay for it all the better. I am currently trying to print something off with supports and, I agree, it will be a pain to cut off the supports and then use sandpaper to smooth everything down. In addition to the expensive machine which you describe, I have heard there are 3D printers which will can print 2 different materials at once. The 2nd material being one that will dissolve away. Hopefully when our financial situation improves, I will be able to fork over a great deal of money to get a better printer. Of course, selling my beloved civic is always an option too. If you can think it they can make it, printers that can print metal, multi color plastic prints, multi material, disolveable materials you name it.
  6. I cant wait until we pull the trigger on buying either a 3d printer or a full blown sls, sla machine same principle as a 3d printer but uses a laser to melt and cure the powdered plastic. Plus there isnt any supports to cut off on odd and weird shapes the uncured powder is the support. I will have all the tools I need to make killer containers software hardware and the know how all at work and not on my dime LOL.
  7. Im sure you have heard this or read this before but print bed level and speed are very important to good print job. I am looking into buying one for work and I have been doing alot of research on them and those two factors are about the most important ones.
  8. I heard about it years ago, I had a large gift card to use up at a big box sports store and justified buying a gps for mainly hunting and fishing and some geocaching BUT (there it is) it does way more cachin than hunting or fishing. I still hunt and fish as much as I used to , but cachin gets a very very large chunk of our free time. 595 finds and a year and a half later we are still at it and quitting anytime soon.
  9. I practice the cut and paste method for the generic stuff for a day of caching but after the generic and before the TFTC in my log I try to include some real meat and potatoes about the specific cache, area, sights, sounds. Sometimes it is one line sometimes it is more. Just a cut and paste was the norm in the beginning for us but now since we have hidden a few caches and really appreciate a good log we are filling in more meat and potatoes in our logs we write. BUT there is always a but, if it is a stop sign cache it is just a plain old cut and paste. My OCD will not let me pass those dreaded stop sign micros up. They will get found whether I like it or not.
  10. We log a DNF anytime we did not find a cache. It doesn't matter if it was a fussy child, bugs, muggles, or we just were not able to find the cache. It gets logged accordingly for my happy happy DNF list and also it give the CO a possible heads up on his cache.
  11. What can you do with a collectible TB? What do I do if I want a TB to be a collectible? And what can I expect if I make a TB a collectible?
  12. My wife makes photo albums full of pics of all the cool and interesting places we see/drive by, and neat/creative cache containers we visit and find (no park and grabs or stop sign micros)
  13. Thanks for the info and opinions.
  14. It will be the same container the same wow factor just at a different location on farm should be the same experience. Depending on cover it may be within ,1 mile but it may not if the cover isnt as good as I remember it to be.
  15. I need to move one of my caches and I was wondering how far is to far to move it before it should be archived and a new cache placed in a new home?
  16. We are not new cachers or seasoned veterans(yet) we have just over 500 finds in less than a year and a half(good lucky streak), we check on our caches whenever we are in the area or if they have been NM'd/DNF'd.
  17. Just so I'm also clear, even so, you should talk to him as if you consider him an innocent bystander that you're asking for help. It does no good to blame someone even when they're guilty, yet it hurts a lot if you blame someone that's innocent. I also want to make clear I'm not questioning your feelings towards them, I'm just suggesting how to approach them. Yeah, I'm behind that. I'm not saying jerks cannot be identified and pitied, I'm just suggesting the it does no good to try to pillory them. I get what you are saying I have no and never had intentions on finding, confronting him over the damage I just would like to remind him to log the trackables. I made it clear in my OP.
  18. Just to clarify what others have been saying, you should always assume innocence. (I offer this advice even in other situations where the guilty party is obvious, so it goes double in your case.) What that means is that, if you could tell who signed the log, you contact them to ask if the TBs were there (and if the cache was already broken), not to accuse them of taking the TBs or breaking the cache. If they did take the TBs, that's as good as reminding them, but if they didn't, you avoid accusing them falsely. Now as to your question, the advice you're getting to wait for a delayed log on the TBs is fine, but actually in this case I agree that this sounds more like a muggle ransacking, so while I wouldn't mark them missing yet -- some inquiring muggle parent might yet come to the TBs rescue! -- I would post a note to the TB logs explaining that they aren't in the cache, and you have fears they've been stolen. I know it was the last finder. I checked on it the day before and it was all good the next day my wife said she saw someone walking towards the hide with a gps or fone in their hand retrieve the cache go to his car and return it when he was done. When I got home a few hours later... Just to be clear. You have reasonable evidence that a geocacher found your cache the day after you checked it. Unless there is more to this story, you do not have any evidence that others did not find it after the presumed cacher left. Unless your wife saw him breaking the door and carting off a bajillion TBs, it remains quite possible, given the high profile area, that some neighborhood hooligan saw him going to GZ twice, and investigated. Hence, the axion of presumption of innocence. High flow area on a dead end street I highly doubt it. We get about 3 people a day walk past the house and even less cars unless my neighbors leave who also know about the cache and like watching the people look for the cache.

When I got home a few hours later she told me someone found the cache so I went and checked and found what I found. And dont get me wrong Im not mad about the damage I can fix it, Im kind of irritated the guy (yes it was a guy) did not leave a sorry note or sorry next to his signature. I guess I still have hope that people (you know the ones I am talking about) will hold themselves to a higher standard.
  20. I have a cache Kind of unique like all my others and only a few finds into it the last finder has broken the door right off of the hiding place and took all but one of the trackables that was on Monday. He has yet to log his find or log the trackables into his possession. I have disabled the cache so I can fix it this weekend. he did a poor job of scribbling his name in the log book so it is unreadable, so I have no way of contacting him to remind him to log. How much longer should I wait until I inform the trackable owners of lost, items??
  21. We take a wood burner and burn our name year and some shape or saying in a wooden nickel or shaped wood disc Time consuming but Im sure someone gets some enjoyment out of finding them like we do. Side note why are the P words(path tags) in the same category as the ones whose name cannot be spoken(Lord Voldemort) ooops
  22. What we carry tweezers, micro needle nose pliers, pick set, safety pin, swiss army knife, extendable magnet, extendable mirror, lighter, head lamp flashlights, first aid kit, sanitizer, side arm a really good bug spray. All tucked into a multi compartment old back pack.
