  1. I'm surprised no one has referenced GPS Goldrush It's been an annual event held at Mohawk ski are in Ct 2001 and then 2002 at Killington Vt ski area. They get all kinds of sponsorships from gps and sports gear manufacturers and make it an event cache with multiple cash and cache prizes. There's not a whole lot on the webpage right now but if that's the kind of thing your into might get some tips from them. You can read past goldrush chatter in the forums by doing a search.

    I voted so because for those geocachers in areas where is very few normal caches, the locationless caches are very important reason to continue this hobby.


    Capt n' Family ...but an improved system would benefit all types. Couldn't you hunt those that are out there already and plan some great ones for the reopening in the mean time?


    Jeremy... you'd better hold tight to that April/May date, I can imagine how those with few caches in the vacinity would depend on these to play the game...puts the pressure on. I definitely say go for it though.

  3. That sounds like it would be this Sammy.

    And that would make this Hillywilly's bug...oh boy. Poor hillywilly is the guy that planted the cache outside the railroad tunnel and got the Book Thrown at him big time. Good Luck hope you find him to give him the scoop.

  4. Natureboy be patient. They are reputable cachers and if they're hanging on to it for a little bit I bet you it's with a plan in mind. I just realized they picked this one up in one of my caches... go figure. Sounds to me like they have plans from their log..and they haven't logged onto the site since 1/15 so my guess is they're away.

  5. I think I'd carry it a little farther even to say don't delete it...leave it up to the cacher to do that. If you contact them and tell them the situation and they do nothing... so what! You posted a note on the cache page the situation... you know they know.. and any future finders can assess the situation to figure it out and know they are not hunting for a 5 gallon pail. Leave it alone now and go caching and have fun...don't worry..be happy icon_smile.gif

  6. Marky,


    Your right about the folding..that's why I made my sheet as wide as the vial was high..this way you could read the cache note through the vial too. Mine was a stage in a multicache..didn't need a log in there and wasn't thinking of that with this question...your right though of course icon_smile.gif

  7. When I left my house this morning it was -3F an hour and a half later and 30 miles south it may have gotten up to 10F. My Garmin map 76s w/ alkalines led me right to the cache no prob. I really didn't even notice much of a delayed updating....1.5/1 cache though that had me outside about half an hour...much longer than that and I probably would have quit before the garmin did.

  8. Let me add another congratulations from afar. You guys did a great job keeping your cool and presenting geocaching as the great sport/game that it is (if we could just decide what it was). I was down in your beautiful state last year and got to do a few of your caches, and have a couple trips down that way planned for this year also and hope to bag a few more. Since I have cached in your neck of the woods I also sent a letter to the director to support you all. I wonder how many letters they got? There was some great stuff posted to the forum here. Any idea of a head count as to how many bodies you had at the meeting?


    I've been trying to work with NYS parks to get some sort of policy going but they've chosen to ignore me. I sure do hope when the day comes that they open their eyes they will be as accommodating as the folks down there have been. Cache on in a big way folks...you've earned it...and your legal now too ;-)
