  1. "EMC of Northridge, CA found at 5/28/2004: Came up for a long weekend of speed caching in the South Bay and, despite an interruption of plans while I dashed back to LA for a last-minute job, I managed to put in 64 hours of caching over 4.3 days, and ultimately returned with 278 finds!! I found 80 today, and was joined by bthomas, who still had quite a few left on his list in the San Jose area." Even with the event in her honor on Sunday, we weren't able to slow her down at all. Go Elin! She's now found more than 300 in the Bay Area. Should she be added to the leader board?
  2. The event has been rescheduled for Sunday 'cause Elin has a movie gig!!!
  3. Please help us welcome Elin to the Bay Area (GCJHHV) Just an informal get together to greet "EMC of Northridge, CA" who will be mega-caching the bay area this weekend. (Elin is one of the pre-eminent SoCal cachers.) This way we can slow her down and get her off the streets (don't draw any implications) at least for a few hours. Saturday, May 29th - 9:00 pm Chili's Grill & Bar 4801 Hopyard Rd Pleasanton, CA
  4. A wonderful opportunity. Since you are local, please place 34 new caches (1/10 mile apart). Leave the two ends for Marky to place secret trailhead caches. Thanks
  5. Show Me the Cache: 2408 Check out: ventura_kids: 2395 Team_Dakiba 2341 These SoCal guys will blast into the top ten within the next week or two.
  6. Huge congrats to DavidT21 & Fisherwoman for blasting thru the 2K mark while I was napping.
  7. This is getting contageous: JimSwim has also joined the 4-digit club. CONGRATS JIMSWIM!! So Jim, are you off to Disneyland? GeoWoodstock or what?
  8. Don't let me spoil the fun and please keep it a secret, a new one was placed there just today..........................
  9. Agreed!! We alre all indebted to CBN for his fantastic effort. It was great meeting everyone (a few for the second time) and trading embellishments. Cache-ya later.
  10. Congrats to 4wheeler for joining the 4-digit club last week!!!
  11. Sorry to put a damper on this discussion, but ....... Honestly, the Fifield-Cahill Ridge hike was a disappointment. You are restricted to the dirt road, rarely is there a view of anything and the chaparones are with you at all times. There are much nicer hikes in more available parks throughout the Bay Area.
  12. Walruz, TeamSpaz and I had quite an adventure yesterday, just check out our logs on the former Secret Sidewalk cache (GCHXNG). Thanks to Joe, we escaped with our lives, he sacrificed himself by sharing a Bud with the "owners". Joe's New Best Buds:
  13. Tri-Valley is my home turf. Drop me a line, I can be available if we schedule it in advance. (teamalamo@pacbell.net)
  14. Can someone please take the lead in contacting EBRPD? I will be away for 2 weeks, but I'll be glad to assist in anyway that I can. 4wheeler also posted an informative item on this topic including the appropriate contact person: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=65207 We need to impress upon them that as a whole, we are careful with protecting the environment, trash out, pay our taxes and annual membership fees, etc. Perhaps we could assist by providing them with some contact names incase there is difficulties with any given caches, offer an approval process, etc. Could a petition help? I want my $30 back! How many of us have mave made the payment for this year?
  15. Yes, you can drive all the way to the top: N37 52.893 W121 54.824. No caches up there, but a real novel benchmark, some fantastic views and a small museum. In general, the the terrain ratings for the caches on the mountain are strenuous or even more strenuous. Contact me directly and I'll help you plan it.
  16. In the "old" days (a few months ago), there was a site that tallied stats based on location, so it was easy to identify local cachers based on finds in your local city. I wish that Geocaching.com would reinstate stats and this great by-product feature.
  17. This has probably been discussed before, but it is getting to be a real pain to scroll down through all the found TBs on my cache page. Can't this feature be modified to work similarly to cache posts. Just show the last 10 bugs found or the last 10 days.
  18. Come on up to the East Bay! Don't miss GeoWomyn's Indian Montage on your way up.
  19. Many of us would like to visit the hotel, but the hours are extrememly restricted. PErhaps you could consider moving it to a location that can be accessed after 6PM. quote:Originally posted by Bo Peep & The Sheep:I know the "end of summer" tide has ebbed. Searches, and finds are off too. Back east they are already talking about a winter hiatus, due to early cold weather. My Travel Bug motel is FULL, 7 bugs in there. And it is on a Major highway junction. The only solution is to make a concerted effort to move the bugs and keep them flowing. (I even have moved bugs to another TB Motel 8 miles away, just to move them, even though I have "found" that cache many times, it is handy to just move them.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ THIS is the PUBLIC face of Geocaching, when someone learns of the sport this is where they come to learn more, what are YOU showing them? http://blacksheep.rootsweb.com/ International Black Sheep Society of Genealogists
  20. Huge congrats to DavidT21 & Fisherwoman for joining the 4-digit club!!! Way to go.
  21. Hey - I need some help with a find (GC52AE Shipwreck - user Tangles) I specifically went back to a specific location in Florida (drove many miles out of my way to get there) to get a picture with my GPS this time - now the cache owner, claims he doesn't like my picture since my GPS is a small item on a large gun and he keeps deleting my logs even though I have complied with all his rules. He won't even reply to an email. "All I see is a YELLOW THING. .............How much trouble would it have been to do a close up of the GPS on the Canon? It's our CACHE and OUR RULES. Resubmit with an identifiable GPS for a find." I am now 3000 miles away - that yellow thing is a Garmin Geko 201 - very identifiable (nothing else looks like it). I have fully complied with his rules, it is an original picture, my GPS is in it, I even provided him with a close up of the plaque describing the wreck. It is a legitimate find and my posts should not have been deleted. What can I do? What recourse do I have?
  22. Walnut Creek Journal - Posted on Thu, Aug. 14, 2003 Cache it if you can By Jackie Burrell STAFF WRITER THE HUNT IS ON. Carrying topographical maps, a Thomas Guide and electronic equipment, a trio of treasure seekers scampers up a dun-colored hill. They zero in on a gnarled oak tree, peer carefully about, then reach deep into a hole in the trunk. A grin spreads across Lee van der Bokke's face as he catches hold of a rope inside the hollow trunk, and gently tugs at the Doritos 3-D can dangling inside. CC Caching Article
  23. The summer is rapidly coming to an end and it is a great time to get together before the fall responsibilies creep up on us. The first East Bay Geocachers Pizza event will be at The Pizza Machine in Danville. As this is our first event, it will be a great opportunity to meet many of the cachers in our area and beyond. Please post how many people will be coming. August 28th, 6:30PM The Pizza Machine 664 San Ramon Valley Blvd. Danville, California 94526 East Bay (and Beyond) Pizza
