1. ## Key Chain Travel bug... request for input

I guess its on then... key chain TB it is! and to all those that think its to big... just dont pick it up anyway. what are the ods! <-T 3 a |/| B a || d i T 0-> S [] U T |-| 3 U < |_ i D [] |-| | []
2. ## Key Chain Travel bug... request for input

errr avg weight and size of a keychain. not a tb duh! <-T 3 a |/| B a || d i T 0-> S [] U T |-| 3 U < |_ i D [] |-| | []
3. ## Key Chain Travel bug... request for input

If i created a TB with the mission of having every one who finds it attach a keychain from where they are from.... how many carriers or keychains would it take for the TB to become to big/ heavy etc? For this we have to assume an average weight and size of the TB, of course. Assuming 20 a year (overestimate) i bet in 10 years it would be the size of a cantelope. Weight err wait let me first compute the surface area of said cantelope, then compute the avg size of a keychain based upon the local selection at a truck stop. What do you think? <-T 3 a |/| B a || d i T 0-> S [] U T |-| 3 U < |_ i D [] |-| | []

8. ## Minimize Your Environmental Impact While Caching... its easy enough to do!

i appreciate your input. While one may view my opinions as extreme... regarding the trampling of saplings.. I do feel I am being extreme... rather I feel I am not opposed to one person squishing a tree... but I think I am zoomed out and looking at the big picture like caches receiving dozens of visitors every month. The balence nature is usually capable of, I feel can be o so easily offset when you look at the cumulitive effects of a readily visited cache... granted not all caches receive visits with a regularity that would alarm me.. but as of yet I hae not seen data to show me our sport is decreasing in popularity. The only thing I have to look at is Garmens sales figures. But I feel if a cache is getting 15 visits a month now... in 5 years when we all have gps wristwatches or something... there may be double that. And perhaps that figure is a conservitive estimate. I am as putting as much weight and importance in cachers of the future as in our impacts now. In fact imho the technologys lack of total accuracy is in all probability assisting in the minimization of impact becasue of the fluctuating accuracy. I mean with + or - 40 feet many cachers may not be approaching the cache from the same route... but 5 years from now, theoretically will the technology be so exact as to elim

I mean with + or - 40 feet many cachers may not be approaching the cache from the same route... but 5 years from now, theoretically will the technology be so exact as to eliminate this variable? I dont know but it would not suprise me. I guess I am just trying to stir up some interest, conversation and contemplation of this issue... because I feel strongly that as time marches on they will IMHO be much more pronounced, and we will be more regulated. Speaking of regulation, I just got my cache placement permit form from Cleveland Metroparks.. thats another topic but its on point because they are acknolodging impacts and attempting to regulate them via amoung other things requiring that they are moved to a new locale annually.

I get paid all day to worry about environmental impact as a environmental scientist. It's to hard to turn it off, I understand your entitled to your opinion but.. i think you may have weeded out a bit much in your generalazation of my verbage. Its ok though, point taken! <-T 3 a |/| B a || d i T 0-> S [] U T |-| 3 U < |_ i D [] |-| | []

I love a well educated well written reply from people who are knowledgable on the subject at hand. Environmental Impacts... hmm look around buddy, do you have your blinders on to the current state of things? I bet you were real ticked off we voted down drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Get used to "environmental impact crap" its the future... why dont you spend 2 minutes reading up on the growth of the greens as a political party in the USA.. then counter my opinion. As for not brining all your rugrats along on a cache hunt... I can tell from the get go you are only interested in providing your self with a bit of entertainment on the weekend.. and not with preserving our hobby, why else would you insist on brining a group of people which makes if virtually impossable to be covert or to not blow a cache's cover. Im glad you have your best interests in mind and thinking so selfishly... I guess that makes sense considering your stance in eco impacts. I am not even going to delve into the difference between the impact of 6 at once or three seperate groups of 2. That has been talked out on other threads that luckily your nOOb self was not a participant in. <-T 3 a |/| B a || d i T 0-> S [] U T |-| 3 U < |_ i D [] |-| | []

20. ## Egads- naked people on the park

many regions of the USA people are blown away by naturism or nudism. go out west and hike around or visit a primitive hot springs and you will see its a way of life / hobbey for many people including whole families. I dont even need to mention how narrow minded this stigma attached to nudism is... look to our European buddies for guidance on how we should really interpret this activity. No worries man, our culture has so many hang ups about this stuff compaired to many parts of the rest of the world where people wouldnt even bat and eye at this and this thread would never exist now then... im gettin buck nekked n caching wOOT ! not in Ohio yo I would be jailed in a flash get it in a flash! <-T 3 a |/| B a || d i T 0-> S [] U T |-| 3 U < |_ i D [] |-| | []

22. ## Urban Ruins Caching? Urban Wasteland Caching?

I can see we are on the same page as far as urban archeology and ruins exploration. I may have to contribute some of my photog to your site, as it seems appropriatly fitting. Keep up the good work... there are alot of other site out there on this to... i need to find the links... a lot on Nike Missle silo exploration and of course college tunnels <-T 3 a |/| B a || d i T 0-> S [] U T |-| 3 U < |_ i D [] |-| | []
