Finally we have been able to open our Treats and still hold our heads up as adults. Beth wishes to thank Laval K-9 for her Mission, as I do Tedonus Clan. We were both very well surprised - and rewarded for our patience - with envelopes full of great GeoCoins, Travel Bugs and Path Tags. Thanks to you, our Mission Partners, and thanks to GeoCharmer81 without whom this could not have happened! First Beth's, and then my, great Missions:

Also Beth's Mission Partner reported receipt from her on 10/6 and USPS tells me that my Mission Parter received their Mission from me on 10/12/22. Sorry to be late logging - catching up!

Who will we receive? Where will they be? And - what will be our surprises on Halloween?
  11. Get annoyed all you want - and at whatever length you want. The situation here was as cited. I stand with my statement. As I see it - your post needed 6 words to convey 2 sentiments: I'm sorry. I was wrong. Nowhere are either sentiment conveyed. I guess you must enjoy typing for yourself.
  12. We all play the game differently - and I can see the justification for your use. My statement was to a relative newcomer and meant to reinforce and amplify best practices. I still feel it adequately does just that. You have NOT, but I've been getting a lot of conflating with CITO practices from 'cachers with 3K and more finds - and citing very specific cases instead of generalities to reinforce for the newcomer. Again, You have NOT done this - and thanks. I'm almost beginning to hope that no newcomers ever come here seeking info. Were I to be one I'd be getting totally confused.
  13. We have a term for cleaning up trash in the woods - it's CITO. And taking an original cache container isn't CITO - it is as I stated. Now this was a very general statement to a relative newcomer - I expect better understanding from someone with over 3K finds. Perhaps I expect too much?
  14. You have a very specific situation cited and are abusing a general statement to a relative newcomer - and I'm not sure what you hope to gain by that. In broad, taking an original container IS theft. You seem to want to conflate this with CITO for some reason. That's your construction and I won't be held responsible for it. Have fun caching.
  15. You've been getting a lot of good responses, but I have yet to see one thing discussed: Protecting a replacement log in a leaky container. Caveat: At NO time should an original container be removed and ESPECIALLY NEVER should a container be "dropped" in the absence of an original container Your extra containers can be used productively in the case when a container has been damaged for a temporary fix To Be Accompanied By An NM Log to the CO. I regularly use small zip lock bags to protect replacement RITR logs in a leaky container. In a pre-form or tube, I may insert a centrifuge tube inside (especially if no cap) AND MESSAGE THE CO THROUGH An NM LOG. I may put a pill bottle with log in an ammo can where the seal has gone bad AND MESASAGE THE CO THROUGH AN NM LOG This is not a "drop container" as the original container Is Never Removed (that's called THEFT), is only for the purpose of temporarily protecting a replacement log and is ALWAYS ... wanna guess?? - Accompanied By An NM Log to the CO I also carry some good duct tape, cable ties and the like for the same use. I keep all items in my Deluxe Cache Repair Kit attached by a carabiner to my belt loop so it's always with me in the field. It's small and I usually forget I have it on me when we go to lunch. I don't message if it's just a full log replacement but will if a wad of mush must be removed from the cache in order to put in a replacement log and nopte that and any of the rest in my regular log as well. For those who don't care to do this - don't do it - no one's forcing you. I was taught polity. I shall. For those who don't want to see Needs Maintenance logs - take care of your caches would be my suggestion. I do proactively every year. More often for 'high volume' caches. Enjoy caching!
  16. I think many might be new to using Widgets and their effects on the screen where they are installed. A bit of warning on the size of this puppy would have been nice 😁 After installation I moved it to the page with my Geocaching® apps. Even that was a bit of a struggle with the size. Also, I think it could easily have taken up 1/2 the real estate that it does. I don't mind crowding in the widget frame, in this case, because it's only going to spawn the app on use, anyway. The big thing is: have I found this or not and the type and the cache icon in the widget tells me that. Cache Icon, GC, short name, D/T, maybe a 3-dot series for Last Finds/DNF are all I need - and I already know who the Widget is from! Poof - over to the app with full info. And it is fast to do that. But hey - it works correctly! Let's see how handy it is for me. Still - Good Things come in small packages, Signal! Like pollywogs in frog eggs. 😎
  17. Unless the Promotion started after 4:07PM CDT I don't think that's so 😎 The first time I edited the log on 6/7 and submitted it, the find showed up in my Recently Viewed as well as the Activity and the points came up immediately in the Dashboard. And as I related, went away after I clicked through the HQ email to Start The Adventure. It's got me totally puzzled. There will be a short break (which you won't notice) while I delete and re-institute this log, backdated for the 6th. (A few moments later) OK, I deleted and re-instituted the log. Now the 15 points are there- yet again. Hope they stay and thanks for the assistance.
  18. On 6/6/22 Bethie_Biker and I both had occasion to find 1 cache: GC8M6QE Neither of us had logged on this cache in any way prior and we logged through CachLY, directly (not a Draft situation) with 4 bars of 4G on our iPhones with no apparent issues. On 6/7 I saw that BethieB got her 15 points but I had not, so I edited my log and submitted - my 15 points appeared. Then, later, I got the email from HQ to begin my adventure - I clicked through, and my 15 points DISAPPEARED. Editing the log DID NOT bring them, back - but I show a find of the cache on 6/6/22 through the Geocaching® website of this cache. So, my question is: What's going on?? I had posted in a FB page for Geocaching® and one other 'cacher replied with a similar issue (not a misunderstanding of "Found" items in the Promotion but a problem with simple point award) involving several caches. Ha-el-l-l-l-p! Ha-el-l-l-l-p! I'm drowning in The Swamp!!! [gurgle] 😎
  19. One little, Two little, Lost little Coin Mis-sions ... (whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosh ...!) Was that ...? Could that be ...? YES! THE RED BULL BUNNY !!!
  20. And then there were 3 ... Watch 'Lost in Geospace' to learn the fate of our intrepid Missions!
  21. Thanks for all the fun, Claire! I'll check back from time to time to see the 6 last Missions come in 😎 AND - ONWARD TO HALLOWEEN!
