  1. We are contemplating spending an extra night/day in Johannesburg arriving in the late afternoon on 18May19 and leaving in the evening of 19May19.  Before I make these arrangements, we were wondering if any of the local cachers might be available to take us caching that day.  If you don't recognize my geocaching name, you may be pleasantly surprised, just check out my profile.  Please email me at alamogul@outlook.com

  2. I'm having the same problem (I have also deleted the app several times now). Additionally, my iphone shows "9+" saved PQs, but there's nothing there. I'm at wits end, need help ASAP. Is someone from Groundspeak monitoring this thread?



    Try logging out on the Iphone app and then logging back in. I had the same issue, I also received a premium subscription as a gift and had the same problem.


    Thanks for replying. I've tried that, and even deleted the app and reinstalled it, but still no joy.


    I'm wondering if I should be saving the pocket query in a specific format - I *think* I've tried .loc as well as .gpx ... Anyone else want to suggest something I could try?


    (Edited for autocorrect fail..)


    Has anyone found a solution to this? My iPod touch has worked reliably for a long time now, but for the last few weeks I have been having the same trouble. It will start to download the PQ, then die somewhere in the middle. Internet connection is stable and I have tried it from several locations. Any ideas?

  3. Can someone in the South Bay please retrieve this TB. I don't know why all you hard core hikers have shunned Team Nazgul's cache (GCM8J3). We figured that there would have been a rash of finders Xmas week, goes to thow you. Thank you.




    I don't suppose there is any chance that you could rescue my travel bug from Grant Overlook. The bug is in a race and the cache you dropped it in hasn't been visited sine you went there in December.

  4. anybody catch the bit about his new travel bug ending up "anywhere in the world"? I'm wondering if after showing the tracking number on the air, will it end up EVERYWHERE in the world????

    Hey Robert - believe it or not, I got a call from your long-lost (at least to geocaching) brother! He has finally offered to archive his missing caches. :lol:


    Oops, this thread is about the BAB TB. It will be coming to the event on Sunday. I had some kindly geocachers mail it back from Colorado.

  5. Well after what Wacka said I think we should take his advice and meet at the Pizza Place, or event place, at 7pm, after that we'll heard over to the cache site. Any objections?

    You should just meet at the trailhead. There is plenty of on street parking within a few hundred feet.

  6. TeamTek and I did 21 in a day I think it was but we were on bikes with a 30 mile round trip..It took about 5 hours or so That was alot of fun...The american River Bike trail is very dense



    The American River Bike trail is great! We (with DavidT1 & Fisherwoman and bthomas) averaged 1 per mile for the 30 mike trek this past summer. I've noticed that there are quite a few more caches there now.

  7. Welcome Limax.  Glad to see more Livermore cachers

    We prefer to be known as "Livermorons," thank you!


    Welcome, Limax. There are some great caches in Livermore; just not enough yet!

    I heard it through the grapevine that the evil Kryptonite has struck and will be posting a puzzle in Slivermore for you Livermorons.

  8. Can any one help us out with a clue to Blooming Cache (GCKFK6)



    The only clue I can think of would give it away too much. Email Sanruft.... he is good at responding.. He has been traveling lately though so give him a couple of extra days.

    I will say that if you get more than 15 feet away from the fence and if you leave the flowershop property then yoaur e too far away from the cache!

    Sure glad I also have a devious mind as I fortunately found it quickly. Even though I'm all the way in the east bay and yet, I've received at least 5 lifeline calls from this one.

  9. 4wheeler and I ran into craigvince, in believe it or not, in a downpour in Concord the other night. We then toured the town for some new caches. It was great meeting you.


    By the way, please come back to Contra Costa county soon. The other guys that posted are coming to Alamo on 1/21 for a night time cache hike (GCG8QV: Wait Until Dark) followed by an event that I am hosting (GCME3G)

  10. That would be Wait Until Dark and it's to the North...  Alamo, Ca. Well worth the drive IMHO. Only, it doesn't have Brutes bullet TB!


    I'm really sorry to hear about the theft of Touch the Twilight Cache and Brute Forces TB.  :D

    Oooh! This looks mighty tempting! Jan. 22, 04 looks like a full Moon too! :D Might have to mark the Calender for this day. Thanks for the info Bill :D Let's see how much interest this generates,.....

    OK, so Geodanimal calls and wants to go on a night hunt, so we head out for Wait Until Dark. Didn't have to dodge too many raindrops. Trail was very slippery in spots (like oops! splat!). I saw many markers that I followed, until they blinked or moved! It was great fun. Recommended! (In fact, if ya'll go, I'd tag along just to do the hike again :D )

    I'm just waiting for JeepySr's reply on January 21st cause we can't make it on the 22nd.

    Yup! Looks as if Friday the 21st of Jan. is good to go for us. :D Anyone else care to venture into the darkness? :D I have room for approx. 5 people. So if anyone is interested & needs a ride in the Stockton area just give us a holler. :D

    Looking forward to your visit: CVC Comes to Alamo (GCME3G)

  11. Wow, been quiet here lately - hope everybody's been out caching.


    Any plans for an upcoming event? I missed the one on 10/3 (but did manage to pick up 10 or so caches while in Washington on the Friday before that. Met a great group of locals there, too!).


    Work's busy right now, but can't complain - I'm working!


    Just popping in to say "Aloha".

    We are currently targeting the weekend of November 20th for the next BADGES dinner. As soon as things get firmed up, we'll post the event.

  12. Had a great time at today's BADGES picnic but came limping home with a flat tire.  :P  From the cache logs it looks like Team Alamo suffered the same fate.  Any others have the same experience?

    My flat was in the bike tire when returning back from the grand tour of the new Baylands caches.

  13. :D We have another big celebration planned for this weekend. :P


    DavidT21 & Fisherwoman @3K


    Unfortunately, we are not allowed to have another formal event (seems like Hemlock would be flogged if he were to approve it), so I will be bringing a commemorative cache to Saturday's Danville event, GCK85X. This commemorative cache will be hidden after the event.


    Please come celebrate with us.

  14. Next Monday I'm planning to go have fun with that outbreak of new Monte Bello caches. Will everyone else who's going to add caches to that area please get it out of their system by then?  Thanks! :o




    Just make sure YOU aren't bringing any with you! I'm going on Saturday.... :o

    Fisherwoman, 4wheeler and I are planning on Thursday this week is anyone is interested in joining us.

  15. ....and they have crossed the finish line! dgreno is over 2000 and digitalfish is at 1000! Congratulations both of you! ;)  ;)  :D
    Way to go dgreno and digitalfish!!!


    :D  :D  :D ...and congrats to you too...WoW....;)  :D  :D


    Sorry we missed it, but we wuz out cachin'

  16. No worries. 


    My initial point was that the Jeep TBs seem to be incentive to look at or visit caches that may not ordinarily get visited, and are also likely to get passed around rather than left in a cache. 


    I also wanted to explain the MOC -- the prize was worth double what my other FTFs are, sort of a test on plundering and maintentance ability since it was my first non-micro in the City, and until I switch out the tupperware it probably couldn't handle a lot of action anyway. Even after 6 months, I'm still learning this game...

    So where have all the Jeep TB's, from the Badges 3 Dinner event, disappeared to? I did a search for 20 miles from the event and the only cache with one in it had two log entries stating it has been picked up. Sounds like they became souvieners?

    If you look at the BADGES profile, you can track the 65 Jeeps. It appears that 10 have not been picked up as yet. Perhaps BADGES could send out a reminder to the attendees.


    In addition to those, 5 were placed in the South Bay before the event, one recently in the East Bay and two more were placed in Marin.


    It also appears that some are on the move out of the area, so hopefully some will start arriving here from elsewhere sometime soon.
