  1. I've been shocked at all the places I've gone to with geocaching just a few miles from home that I've never seen before, and never would have seen otherwise. It's also something to do when vacationing, because those blasted geocaches are everywhere, and you'd be quite hard-pressed to vacation someplace where there are no geocaches.
  2. I, too, like to leave an intelligent log. That's not exactly the reason I'm logging Thanksgiving's finds now, but I do find it worth it to leave an intelligent, well-thought-out log.
  3. Yes, I frequently read the logs beforehand. Aside from giving you a feel for what your hunt's going to be like, you can soemtimes see that a cache probably isn't there even though an owner hasn't disabled it.
  4. Toilet paper? I dunno. That's not too bad, I suppose. But it's all I can think of.
  5. OtisPug, with a picture of his face. It'll never happen, but boy is it fun to dream.
  6. There's no like or dislike, it's just this topic has indeed been discussed several times.
  7. click With this, you could phone in your posts to your blog (which truly are easy to set up), and then, on the cache page, either link to the blog or the audio tidbit. It'd be pretty cool to hear the hider's voice. Just because it's simply cool. What more can one ask for?
  8. You might as well hand over the staff now. I'm entering.
  9. (I think) That's what people put after they make a comment they maybe shouldn't have said. But I can't say that with complete assurance.
  10. I'd like to see Mr. Benjamin Franklin staring back up at me, or the logbook. Don't really care much about what's in the cache. No, honestly!
  11. Either the one that took us eight tries or the one with the 4.5 terrain (called Never Find the Body, because, if you fell, they would never find the body. Heh. What lighthearted humor). We were the second to find it, three months after it was hidden. We stayed the most current finder for quite a while, too. It made me feel happy inside, concquering that cache as all the more regular regulars shyed away.
  12. The only person on my list who hasn't been mentioned several times is seneca. But wouldn't it be rather funny if I, at 13 years of age, was nominated as a mod? That would be rather ironic, wouldn't it? Yes, I do think so.
  13. forums: A foursome of unsure responses. Boy, but I wish I had a sense of humor.
  14. There was one where you had to lift up the latch for a fire alarm and there was the cache amidst all the wires. There was another where you had to go to the fifth story of a library, and there was a book the hider had placed that was entirely hollowed out, with an Altoids Tin inside. Both of these were hidden by the incredible, daring OtisPug. Another local hider hid one in a fake sprinkler in a blockbuster parking lot. And in a planted pipe behind an office building. And and and.... I'm like a wealth of fantastic stories.
  15. I'm too lazy to get links! Rejoice! Pretty much every OtisPug hide for me defined the word "great." That guy was one of the most mysterious, creative, and evil fellows ever to hide a cache. We relished each and every time we had fought through the obscure clues and were able to pop the lid off one of his caches, whether it was drug up out of the sewer with fishing line or a three-gallon bucket placed in a tree at eye level or an altoids tin placed in a hollowed-out book in a long-forgotten aisle of a library. It was a privledge to have such a prolific and famed hider so close to us.
  16. Hey, TeamMaximus. We took a somewhat similar trip (Zion, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Bryce) earlier this summer and, even though the point of the trip wasn't to geocache, we still found around a dozen. I think my favorite in Yellowstone was Oceans Bound, just because that's where the water runs to both the Pacific and Atlantic. It's not exceptionally sightworthy, but I still thought it was cool. Perplexing Parallel is just outside the state of Wyoming. As with Oceans bound, there's not a spectacular sight, but being at the 45th parallel was pretty cool to me. Gardiner, Montana is just outside Yellowstone and is the home of dRAFTy and the Jardine Bug Hotel. Hope you have a great, memorable time on your trip. And, a word of advice: Grand Geyser in Yellowstone is nost definitely worth the wait.
  17. We've met cachefan before. She has only one post in the forums, but has found about 1,300 caches. Yep.
  18. Now we've got seven: California New Mexico Florida Utah Idaho Montana Wyoming
  19. I also love that you can cache wherever you go, literally.
  20. For OtisPug's mind-bending contraptions and the people he/she brought together as friends, trying to break the infamous OP riddles.
  21. California New Mexico Florida Hope to add a few to the list during a Yellowstone road trip. I'm printing out the pages right now!
  22. It's a "family" thing. At times a 2, at other times, a 6.
