  1. Soooo....let's say a team has finished the requirements for this. And this team will be heading to get one of the caches that's listed on the master list. And that cache owner seems not to have the coins? Any way a person could purchase one directly once they've proved completion? I'm just saying. Is all!
  2. Wow, thanks, I think we have next summer's big road trip planned!
  3. It's very relevant to me. I'm a geocacher, started in 2001. In 2002 I found my first letterbox then started hiding my own. Collecting the stamp images, especially the one-of-a-kind hand-carved images, is more satisfying then trading swag. That's where I'm at with it, too. I do look for the non-gc.com ones as well, but Trekkin' isn't as interested then. The hand-carved stamp images are cool, and I know there are others who geocache but enjoy this particular style of hide, too. Thanks for the tips. Hmmm, Provo Utah is also Scrapbooking Central! Sorry about the double post, I don't see where I can delete the extra.

  6. Letterbox hybrids seem to be rare animals, which we really enjoy. Seems that if an area has more than a couple, it's one hider who also enjoys them. So....I'm curious to know of areas in the lower 48 that are letterbox hotbeds, where a trip could be planned and a nice pile of the finds could be letterboxes. In the case of letterboxes, 5-10 in an area would be great! Thanks for any direction.
  7. Thanks. We're traveling with friends, so plans need to mesh, but fortunately for us, we've done many of the attractions the island offers in a past visit. We spent an entire day at the fort last time, since we re-enact that era, too. Thanks for your tips. We're looking forward to doing whatever we can! We do a lot of rugged terrain where we live in the course of a normal day's caching, so we'll see if we're up to the island! Thanks again.
  8. Your organized plan is really helpful. Do you think a two day approach would work, taking the outside and ferry landing one day, then hitting the top the next?
  9. Uh, never mind, I found the earlier, very helpful post I missed when I searched before!
  10. Hi, We're heading up this way this coming weekend, and wondered if anyone's done all the caches on the island, including the earthcaches. There are close to 60. We're trying to decide if we need to buy ferry tickets for one or two days. We are biking. Thanks for any insights! Trekkin' and Birdin'
  11. We listed our DNF the other day, and it bugged us so much that we made sure to go back the next day and try harder to find it. We did. I appreciate when people do this, because it gives me a bit of an idea of the real difficulty involved. There are a couple not far from here that show a lot of DNFs. We haven't been to them---yet---but we will.
  12. Thanks for the information. I'll try emailing her again; maybe the follow-up email got lost in the shuffle somehow. It was a book. I believe the person who released it is a publishing agent of some sort, and the book is by Matthew Reilly, called "The Seven Deadly Wonders." Several copies were released as TBs, because the storyline is kind of a treasure hunt. It's called "ReillyBug8." Kind of a silly book, not all that well written, but I enjoyed it anyway and want to move it along for someone else's enjoyment. I suppose the other option would be to make it a Bookcrossing book.
  13. I've tried finding this answer throughout the site, but no luck. We retrieved a Travel Bug from a cache, and realized that there must have been something attached besides the note inside. (It was a book). I contacted the person who put this one out, and she described the missing tag. We went back and could not find it at all. No one had been to the cache since we retrieved it. It's not really located in a place where anyone other than cachers would be likely to look. The owner did not send me the number, so I can't log it. I've read the book and would like to send it on its journey, but can't log it properly. Ideas? TIA
