  1. Funny I was watching Father Goose this morning and thought the exact same thing. First one was even hidden in a fallen log
  2. ...when it becomes scary as you realize you have done the same thing as many others in this thread.
  3. I have to quit reading these threads at work, all of my laughing is gonna get me busted.
  4. I realized today that I must really be hooked on geocaching because I started planning our next vacation and chose an area because it had more caches nearby. So, I guess my line would read: You know you're hooked on Geocaching when...you base your vacation on geocache density. Anyone else? Jim
  5. And when exactly is Garmin going to embrace the Geocaching community? Ever? I'm sorry to hear of the problems that have happened in Pittsburgh, ours (in St, Louis) went off with out any problems. But I for one have been impressed with the fact that Magellan has shown their support of the Geocaching community with this contest, even though they are still learning some things. I wonder if Garmin knows we exist? Jim
  6. This is a cool website that gives information about how things came about creating the idea, and placing the first stashes: Geocache history I found it quite interesting because it almost feels like you're following along as it's happening. Jim
  7. quote:I am having a problem... I have inserted the HTML code in the Long Description box but it still shows the green background. It showed the new background once or twice but that was it... Yes the "I am supplying my own HTML" box is checked... Here is the code: <body background="http://www.geocities.com/CollegePark/Grounds/2446/bluemarble-bk.gif"> My guess is that the picture isn't always available form the website that it's stored at. You might try uploading the picture into your profile or the cache page, then linking to it's new address here at geocaching.com for example: <body background="http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/75166_300.JPG"> Jim
  8. Please see my edited response below. Jim [This message was edited by Dorkus&Co. on July 31, 2003 at 10:57 AM.]
  9. Another option is to place a numeric code of some sort on the plaque. Then the finder can just email you the number for varification purposes. Jim
  10. I just applied too. This is a cool site! Jim
  11. Please include us! Thanks, Jim [This message was edited by Dorkus&Co. on July 24, 2003 at 11:05 PM.]

  14. JUst a point on the NPS issue. I live in St. Louis. The NPS governs the grounds around the Gateway Arch. They allow 100,000-500,000 people stampeding around the grounds each July 4th weekend. To me this would be a perfect example why they shouldn't have a blanket policy on geocaching. The Arch grounds are nothing more than trees and grass. No echosystems, etc. to worry about. I'm sure there are plenty of other places in the NPS inventory that we would have little, if no impact on.
  15. As for the elevation reading, I was told that most get their readings based on the location on the map, not from any kind of altameter or GPS readings. Jim
  16. I like the idea as long as the metal ones would still be an option. A travel Bug shaped Travel Bug would be COOL!
  17. You can buy acetate (clear plastic) sheets that are used for overhead projectors. These can be used in most copiers instead of paper and it prints (copies) right onto the plastic. The downfall is that it is a little tougher to read because of the clear backgound. Jim
  18. But in most respects can't you just assume you're talking about your receiver without having to add the "r"? I think most don't assume you're are talking about the satallites or some other part of the system. When you talk about your Television set you don't refer to it as yout TVr even though that is what it is. Or your car radio as your radior. I just think it's kind silly. Just my opinion . Jim
