  1. I voted everyone, but having an option of anoymous could be a good thing. If you chose to be anonymous, you couldnt see anyone else on the watch list.
  2. I would think the only funds the DNR gets from the US Fish and Wildlife service would be grants for certain projects.
  3. After reading this, I decided to do some research, and did a search for Geocaching on the US Fish and Wildlife site, and didnt get any hits, but on the Michigan DNR site, I did get a hit back... QUESTION: What is the DNR's policy about using state lands for playing the new game of geocaching (www.geocaching.com)? ANSWER: The DNR has no problem with individuals playing geocaching on State land, as long as the activity does not become an event with large numbers of players. An event would require a DNR permit and include permit fees. We are especially pleased with the Cache In, Trash Out policy advocated by the official web page www.geocaching.com. You can read this at this Address: Michigan DNR Geocaching Stance
  4. Awesome pack! Can fit a full cache worth of stuff in here. Already getting it ready to go out, as soon as the snow allows me to.
  5. I think they are a VERY good idea...especially in a cache starved location like Im in. There is one 20 miles or so from here, that I want to go help move along.
  6. This one time, I was walking through a forest, and a Tupperware minon was stalking me...It was throwing Ammo boxes at me. I picked it up, and Stuffed the tupperware minion in the ammo box, and hid it under the snow in the UP of Michigan. Will go out in a few months when the snow is finally gone
  7. The Michigan Geocaching Org. (MiGO) already has a chat, and its on the same server as the one Mopar set up. Join channel #MiGO There is usually someone idling there, if not chatting. Michigan Geocaching Org
  8. I just wonder why the ranger left a note...I worked at a state park in Michigan, and if I was removing something that was "trash" I certanly wouldnt leave some more trash in its place...If I left a note, I would leave my contact info at least, so the owner could find me. These caches could have been taken by anyone, and just signed that way. I personally wouldnt have logged it as a find, but thats just me. I have 2 caches that I have a no find, and one I knew where it was due to already finding it, and going back to it to drop a travel bug off at...found the hole in the snow that it was buried in...but no cache. The second had a find logged the day before I was there, and unless its invisible, I didnt find that one either. i just contacted the cache owner to find out more info about the cache site.
  9. If you could point me in the right direction
  10. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and the other night, it was snowing so bad, I could hardly see 5 ft in front of the car. Of course, being the junkie I am, I had my gps with me. I was locking the same, if not better than I do on a sunny day. So, I guess its all in the eye of the beholder. [This message was edited by Thallas on February 23, 2003 at 08:30 AM.]
  11. There are 2 real easy caches in the Sault, that you should be able to pick up in less than an hour...Recycle Michigan and Backwoods 2. There is one within a half mile of Backwoods, but wouldnt attempt it without boots...its a little wet out there.
  12. Yeah, True. Its been beat to death. Whatever happened, it did a number to the disk itself. The whole concrete post it was in was pulled from the ground It looks as if someone actually pulled it from the ground. Kinda dissapointing really. It was my second find. Deb seen the pics I uploaded here, and she made the call that it was classified as destroyed.
  13. A week after you have Orthoscopic knee surgery, and you get your stitches out, you stop to search out a cache thats "only a short walk" if you park in the right area **done this one today**
  14. Is just cause its the Halloween season, and it was a funny picture I got from an email my mom sent me. ------------------------------------------------- Diplomacy: The ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way they actually look forward to the trip. -------------------------------------------------
  15. Spent 1 yr 9 months before being medically discharged. I wanted to make it a career, but cant really be a scout with a bad knee. One thing to remember, never let the E6 that has no technology sense run the Plugger, or you will end up comming down the side of a 400' hill that you have to climb back up due to the fact thats where the OP is supposed to be... Gotta love Colorado, but its nice to be back in the Good ol Eastern Upper Peninsula
  16. I contacted Deb Brown with the NGS about one of my finds...an obvious destroyed marker, like this onefor example. She gave me permission to recover and keep the disk.
  17. Im suprised that all through that thread there are only about 3 instances where people bring the silver Space blanket...For only 2-4 bucks, they are a definate livesaver...from Keeping you dry if its raining, to keeping warm, even in the middle of a sudden snow storm (ok, you gotta plan these things in Michigans Upper Peninsula)
  18. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1870855878 It would be a good way to get an ammo can...dont think I would go this route though.
  19. You will be VERY addicted to the game.

    Wonder if its going to work this time...
  21. This was found here on a decommissioned Air Force Base:
  22. And am going to be buying myself a subscription to help out. Im a webmaster myself, and there are a LOT of costs involved with running a site. As long as there are no Popups, or Popunders, I will be happy to help out with a small cost of 30.00 for the subscription.
  23. Recently I went on a little search for some of the benchmarks in my hometown. Here is one of the ones I found. Benchmark RJ0370 How would this one be rated? Looks like there is even the path the truck used to pull it out of the ground
  24. I just found my second marker a few days ago, and the whole cement post that the marker is in was pulled from the ground and laying on top of the ground. Im going out this weekend to get pictures of it. Whats the address that I would go to report this at?
