  1. That's a heck of a way to celebrate a FTF. Me, I just take a nap....Guess I'm old... --MGb
  2. Ok guys, very funny, ha ha....Fill my cache with bullets....Oh you mean....noooooooo.....I'll be darned... --MGb
  3. "...now how do I thank cache ouner?" Cash is always nice.... You can send that to me and I'll make SURE the owner gets it... --MGb
  4. First of all, you use an explorist, so there's not much more to be lost... Seriously, I'm not sure I understnad how GPS systems would effectively aid an enemy. I suppose if there wasw evidence that an enemy was using GPS technology as an effective aid for their attacks, i'll take the hit for a few weeks/months in the interest of national security. "Bush also said the government will make the network signals more resistant to deliberate or inadvertent jamming." Like those pesky leaves on a cloudy day? --MGb
  5. Oh, I'm a HUGE proponent of the Treo. I have a 650 myself. The treo supports Bluetooth and Delorme makes a niftly bluetooth powerpack bundled with Streetatlas software that's handy for GCing and for travel in general - used it on my trip to MN last summer. http://www.mytreo.net - Which is btw the ultimate resorce for anything Treo - Has a few bluetooth GPSr's for the treo - palm and Windows. I also use my Treo for checking cache pages. I don't have any cache software o there, I just download and save the cache pages themselves in the Blazer Browser. I'd load cachemate or something similar, but I'm all out of internal memory... Any questions aobut chaching with a treo, or treos in general, I LOVE to talk treos. Post or PM. --MGb
  6. <Smartalecresponse> No, Actually, I work in Elgin, IL. Is GIS anywhere around there? </Smartalecresponse> --MGb
  7. I thought thisd was pretty awesome - http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2006/12/27/s...o-gps-receiver/ The part about the Mini-SD receptacle is espescially nifty. I'll be watching for this one to come out on the market! --MGb
  8. But that means you have to physically search through all the containers to find out I didn't sign the log, but logged online anyway.....muhhahahahaha! J/K I don't even know what cache you're talking aobut... --MGb
  9. Awesome! But no minutes.XXX??? How are we supposed to stop by and say hi? --MGb

    Pocket Queries

    I'm having the samew problem. Also nwhat's wierd - No PQ emails sent. No PQ's listed in My Account (recent Prem member, os I may not know where to look. I've tried my yahoo.com email and gmail. no joy. any thoughts? --MGb
  12. Right, but if the other sites suck badly (read:Waymarking.com) then we're left with junk... --MGb
  13. Two good points,. I could compensate for the size by using a business card cd - holds aobut 5-7 minutes of audio. THe scratching is another thing altogether. Tho the point of not sending the Tag would be so it could be easily replaced by burning another CD. The business card couldn't be played in a car stereo, but it has potential. I could also post the song on the web so if the CD does become scratched, it could be downloaded...hmm....many things to think about...much obliged... --MGb Any other thoughts or ideas?
  14. You think there'd be a golf ball???? SOLD! --MGb
  15. Actually the Sarge TB is pretty old and had some really cool adventure...David Letterman....cool... --MGb
  16. I weas thinking about releasing a CD of a song I wrote (instrumental, kinda orchestral) with no tag (tracking number on the CD and instructions in the liner notes) with instructions saying something to the effect of - This is a musical impressions TB. The goal of this bug is reach reach as many people as possbile and have them listen to the song. Then, instead of writing about the adventures or movements of the CD, rather write aobut what the song makes you think/feel/etc. It's not looking for "I liked it" or "I didn't like it" but more of overall impressions it creates. To "discover" the Bug, it asks for a log entry of the same. It'd rather you just write the number down and post, but if this were to travel to an event, and played for the entire group, feel free to discover it." Any thoughts on A) The idea itself. The requirements/text ? --MGb I should add that this is a song I wrote for fun and it's not to promote anything or any cd sales or anything. This song remains and will always remain on my hard drive (TB notwithstanding), and will probably be played throught Germany once they get their hands on it, but that's it...
  17. I was wondering how long it'd take for someone there to read this... Personally to avoid harrassment I perfer the "chicken whisperer" approach. Maybe I'll explain at the next event now that I'm a grizzled old vet...
  18. It wasn't supposed to be obscure, and I think the band would kick your booty for saying that... Oh and uh...I did find this cache, but chose to ignore it. I award myself no smileys, and may God have mercy on my soul.... --MGb
  19. Ummm, this cache didn't really violate any of those rules. Some would say that it violated #2 (the first #2), but it looked no more like a bomb than any other item that we would hide. It might have violated #3, I don't know. It might not have said 'geocache' on the side for all I know. I also don't know if that would have saved it. I guess we could all switch to hide-a-keys, fake rocks, and film cans... How do you blow up a rock?? --MGb
  20. It strikes me as both a form of stalking, and certainly collecting personal data. I don't like it, can you tell? I think it's a breach of ettiquette, but not necesarily of law. Like stars that can't leave their home wihout being beseiged by paparazzi (who are only one small step above muggers in my opinion!) you lose your expectation of privacy when you play a public game like this. A friend of mine takes pictures to make into postcards for retail sales. He tells me that's why he doesn't need a release from the individuals depicted on a public beach or crowd shots at a park. Ed Aside from the practical standpoint, you coul certainly put one out. DEFINITELY post notice on the cache page tho. In Large bold print. Just in case... --MGb
  21. What...Is....IT...? It's IT! What is it? It's IT! Name that tune! --MGb
  22. Um, you make it LOOK like a bomb and you are surprised that it's TREATED like a bomb? I think the hider on this one should have to pay the bomd-squad costs! Did you see the last line??? He/she may have to!! BTW: A wire sticking out of the end of a pipe bomb needs to be ATTACHED to something to make it blow up. And also: Does anyone here see anything worth blowing up??? --MGb No, a wire sticking out of a pipe bomb need only be touched to activate the battery-operated detonator inside, and the hand of a random tree-trimmer might be worth blwing up to the psychopath that plants bombs! Making the assumption that something out of the ordinary is NOT a bomb wins you the Darwin Award! Hmm...I see your point...I guess you're just more devious than I. Or more explosively inclined in which case...eeek... --MGb
  23. It'd be even more fun to attach a travel bug to the newbie and then hide him in a cache... ...Said the girl with three posts....Nothing to do with events I realize, but you have to see the irony... --MGb

  25. Thanks everyone. I had a great time. Eyeseeit showed me the ropes when I got there - about 20 min before everyone else! It was fun discussing chaching and Treo's (pocket PC vs. Palm) techy stuff, non-techie stuff. Some mini cachers came and had a ball. Eyeseeit and GBFI had a nice Icebreaker - Geocacher bingo. I didn't really fill out the card, but it was fun all the same. TAR - no worries. I'm always surprised when any thread goes beyond 10 posts w/o drifting off topic Nothin' but love for ya'll! --MGb
