  1. Here are the results for the survey -thanks everyone that participated: http://www.cache-advance.com/docs/FinalSurveyResults.pdf
  2. Looks like we will have our FTF for the Idaho Forest Fire Lookout Challenge later today: gbraach writes this morning: "The lookouts are done. Today we hike to the final cache." Way to go!! Today is going to be a beaut of a day to finish the challenge -it's a nice hike in pretty country (what lookout cache isn't??) and should be sunny and warm to boot.
  3. I'm so sorry to hear about how this turned out How very frustrating!! Our Spokane REI store contacted our WSGA Inland Empire Chapter to do some trainings a while back. We've done 2 in the last 18 months so far, and they've gone very well. Due to liability concerns however, we weren't able to actually go geocaching with the class. Now the trainings are cross sponsored with Spokane Parks and Rec, and REI has donated classroom space, advertising, and GPSs to use for our monthly classes, and with the city involved I can now take folks caching for a few hours on a second session! I hope that your next try goes better!
  4. Huge Congratulations to Z-TURTLE for hitting 100 caches!!
  5. I was just going to post the very same thing!! Way to go HockeymomZ !!
  6. Congratulations to gustav129 for reaching 100 at my Milestone Cache here in Spokane. Way to go!!!
  7. Here is Spokane County Parcel Viewer
  8. Looks like you survived. Yeppers! What a blast!!
  9. July 29th Update: The goodie bags are stocked and waiting for you! Every registered attendee will also receive an event Pathtag -they were shipped yesterday and we are hopeful they'll arrive by Saturday. Cache Advance will have an event Glow-In-The-Dark Tee Shirt available for purchase as well -the front matches the Pathtag and the back has fun camping icons that also glow-in-the-dark. The Mini Cache Machine is now available for download on the cache page or here Be sure to download the bookmark list as well! Big thanks to Antiqueman for putting this together. We also have a hike/bike bookmark list around the park -check it out! Another big thanks to Antiqueman for all of this hard work!! See you all soon
  10. I just talked to the rangers this morning and campfires are not allowed at this time. Gas grills are OK... Also, if you arrive at the park after 'dusk' you will find the gates 'closed'... they are not locked and it is OK to let yourself in (please close the gate behind you) and come on down to the campout upriver group site to check in. We'll 'leave the light on' if we know you are coming/registered!
  11. Bump! Just two more days to reserve your RV site: we only have sites 1, 2 and 5 left. There is still some room at the group site as well! If you are planning to attend and haven't registered yet, please head here to register so we can can have the most accurate head count. And don't forget to post your 'will attend' note at the cache page as well! Looks to be a fun filled weekend -see y'all soon (providing I survive Champoeg)!
  12. Last time I visited Victoria we took the Tsawwassen ferry to the Swartz Bay Terminal -and it seemed to me there were some conveniently located wineries and parks and of course caches along the way back down to Victoria... I just checked the rate for one adult and car: $56.00 -oh that's one way, so same fare!
  13. Hi There! We'd love to have you! Attendance is free; however, if you would like dinner and a goodie bag, that is $6/members, and $8/non-members, kids eat free: Registration gets you dinner and a goodie bag. (1 person, one registration.) -Children who attend with their (registered) parents eat at no charge. -Anyone who wants to attend, (ie locals just dropping in) without eating or a "goodie bag" can do so for free. Looking forward to seeing you there!
  14. The Beacon Hill Advisory Committee is a local effort to formalize the Spokane Beacon Hill Trail Network for future enjoyment by the public for generations to come; I have been on the Beacon Hill Advisory Committee now for over a year representing my Spokane neighborhood (Minnehaha) and geocaching. We are in the process of gathering some usage data for our planning and the upcoming design charrette (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charrette) this October, and would like to ask interested folks to take a survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/beaconhill The Fat Tire Trail Riders Club is leading this effort in partnership with the City of Spokane, Spokane County, Avista, private landowners, developers, International Mountain Biking Association, bicycle advocates, the Mountaineers, the American Society of Landscape Architects, Wheelsport East, Wintersport, Inland Northwest Trails Coalition, Spokane County Regional Health District, Minnehaha Neighborhood Council, REI, and Mountain Gear. Technical Assistance is being provided by the National Park Service's Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program. The survey will close end of July. If you haven’t done so and are interested, please take the time (5 minutes or so) to fill it out online: http://www.surveymonkey.com/beaconhill. So far, there are 170 responses from many different users, and mountain biking does seem to be the main user activity so far. Thanks! Let me know if you have any questions/concerns or would like to help out.

  16. I've been following this thread for a few days and haven't been able to help/comment until now... OK, how did the 'pirates' get your personal email address???
  17. Hi Jen! Yes, Leonata tells me that you had a lot of fun with your new TB tees and the vehicle TBs at the event -I'm so glad to hear it! As you know I love to attend events, either as a vendor or just as an attendee -I'll have to see about adding the Great Falls event to next year's schedule -thanks! I'll add your suggestions to my 'to-do' list. I am actually going as a buyer to the OR show, so I hope things won't be as hectic as selling can be (ie more time for caching!), while I search out the latest and greatest gear to add to my offerings.
  18. Wow -that would be a very productive stop -thanks! Have you considered going into the geo-travel agent business??
  19. Hey there! Thanks -I'll be sure to check them out
  20. Thanks Smokey Bear Collector! I sure hope I get an opportunity to get out of the 'inner' city and do some exploring.
