  1. I need 200 more graves of centenarians. Do you have any you want to send my way?
  2. Here I finally reached my challenge: 1500 consecutive days with posts. Next Challenge 200 days. And you, where are you?
  3. This coin is #141 of only 200 Summer 2006 Geocoins released by the Texas Geocaching Association. Though the coin is seriel numbered, it is not trackable except through the Travel Bug tag attached. It commerates scuba diving in the natural springs located at Balmorhea State Park in Texas. Check this link out for more info: https://coord.info/TB1CJPK
  4. Sagen alle. Der verlinkte große Multi hat 126 Funde in mehr als 8 Jahren (und ja, ich stimme dir zu, für einen solchen Cache sind das viele Funde). Eine Runde, die ich vor Kurzem auch gemacht habe war eine Adventsrunde, das ist der 24. Cache: https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC90N3N_24-turchen: Dieser Cache hat mehr als 200 Funde in 3 Wochen (inklusive des zugehörigen Trails aus 23 anderen Döschen, die natürlich für die vielen Funde Adventskalender-bedingt ein paar Tage mehr Zeit hatten). Ich weiß nicht, wie man das anders sehen kann. Ein aufwändiger Nachtcache-Multi von mir hat nach über 2 Jahren 21 Funde - allerdings habe ich den auch nicht für Massenandrang gelegt, da bin ich also gar nicht böse drum, dass hier nicht jeder hinläuft. Hätte ich an der gleichen Stelle einen Dosentrail gelegt, wären nach 2 Jahren vermutlich 500 Personen durchgelaufen. Das ist halt einfach so, aber zumindest für den Owner ist das ja gar nicht schlecht. :-)
  5. Height and Width attributes (but nor for example Advisory title) are lost when reediting a TB page. Recreate by this flow. Attaching some images for this recreation flow, steps marked with *). - Go to a TB page with an image in its description - Edit the TB page - Right click and image in the description and select Image Properties - Set width and/or height, (for example Height: 200) *) - "OK" to accept changes to image - "Submit Changes" to save the TB page edits - "Visit the Trackables Page" to view the changes. (Images has height 200) *) - Edit the TB page. - The image in the description is not any longer with height 200 (shown in original size). - Right click image and select Image Properties to verify that width and heigth attributes are lost. *) Testing done on first image on https://coord.info/TB4XD0E, the rest of the images had height/width which now are lost.
  6. It depends on the cache, but for unusual caches, there are a few typical logs that make me suspicious. I mean custom caches, gadget caches and well as many high T caches, and high D that are not solve-at-home-mysteries, caches that are intended to give a unique experience of some kind. Simple caches, a plain petling in some dull place or a lock-and-lock under a pile of branches, for those anything goes, but if an unusual cache gets: TFTC Easy find (imagine that on a 4-stage D4T4 multi with field puzzles or similar) "We logged 200 caches today and this was one of them" LOOONG copy-pastes without a single word about the cache or anything else that just treats my special cache as dirt, as just-another-boring-cache then I get suspicios. I call them "half an NM", if nothing else I should check the log, if it has been signed. I know that many beginners log TFTC on everything, they havn't realized what the log is for yet, but experienced cachers are not expected to log TFTC on a custom cache. (Some do, yes.) And often it hasn't been logged. Sometimes it is just the same old "saw it but couldn't reach it". There could be a throwdown, or the cache may be broken. I have had one cache with a lock where the lock was forced, destroyed. Another was quite weird‚ a T4 at about 7 meters up in a tree where there is a fake cache at the ground with a clear message that this is not the cache. Someone climbed up, brought the log down and put it in the fake! (Straight up sabotage, just not as destrucive as the broken lock.) Of course I got suspicious logs after that. So, my answer to the question is simply, if the log just doesn't match the cache, then I get suspicious.
  7. Update: In order to test my idea and revive my caching in my home area, I have been revisiting over 200 caches during 2020! I do that with the rules that I have set up for myself: Must be at least 2 years since original find. Mysts and multis should be solved again. Only once per cache (or maybe after another 2 years, but that is irrelevant now). All revisits are properly recorded in a revisit history. Conclusion: In most cases, it feels like new! Caches are moved, vegetation has changed, I have often forgotten about the hiding place and/or the surroundings (especially when 7-8 years have passed). And I gave myself over 200 extra reasons to go out caching, often including cycling or walking long enough to be decent exercise. My own home area is suddenly fresh and new to explore as caching area. And I can do caching without travelling long distances to find ones I havn't logged.
  8. That variable is subjective and varies from one person to the next. The models I listed can commonly be purchased for as little as $200 USD. The Oregon 7x0 series is beyond cost effective. It is quite a bargain and easily the best bang for your buck when it comes to GCLive equipped Garmin GPSr.
  9. How do you search caches (or filter them) based on favorite point percentage (not total numbers of favorite points)? I have discovered that some of the best caches do NOT have the highest total number of favorite points, but DO have the highest favorite point percentage. For example, a cache that has been around since 2011 (10 years old) and has 200 favorites is probably pretty good, but may only have a percentage of 20% because 1,000 people have found it and only 1 in 5 have given it a favorite, yet it shows up in searches by favorite points. However, a cache that has only been around since 2020 (less than a year) with 40 favorites is amazing, favorited by almost everyone who has found it (say 90%), but doesn’t stand out in favorite searches because it has far fewer total favorites than much older caches. Is there a way to search by favorite points percentage to remove the cache age filter bias that total favorite points provides? If not, how do we get Groundspeak to add that feature?
  10. My list was entirely revised during the year. The mega was cancelled, and I was not allowed to make the bathing event either. My archiving was modest, way lower than intended. Like the easy and unpopular tree climbing cache that I just liked too much to archive. So the intended 50 was more like 10. I better repeat that goal. But I did fulfill the goal of not letting any cache be archived by a reviewer. The last goal, caching more for exercise, was fulfilled far beyond my ambition, since I decided to start revisiting caches (logged 2 years back or more) on a regular basis. I have revisited more than 200 caches and it was very valuable for reviving my caching! Most were just like going to a new one, since they very often had changed over time. But I also put up two more goals later during the year, closely related: Reach 16% FPs. This meant archiving a few bad ones and publishing ambitious ones. (16% is not very high but a level I could reasonably hope for.) Beat the two biggest COs in Sweden on number of FPs. (This is questionable since it means comparing few with relatively much work put into them to mass-placement but it felt tempting.) This also means getting triple diamond on the "favorited owner" badge. Both were fulfilled. Of course this was very much a question of hoping for visitors to like my caches and waiting for some positive effect, but also about maintenance and keeping a high level on new caches. I have started making my caches with my 3D printer, initially with designs off the web but then moving mostly into custom designs, typically thematic. Some went very well, and they are definitely different from all the petlings and film canisters.
  11. As it is a milestone for me I thought that it is time to update my stats. I now have 200 First-Category-Post-in-a-Country waymarks (Copyright by fi67 ). That's more than double of what I had 3 years ago. Also, due to our travels of the last few years, the number of different countries has increased from 9 to 15. The 200 waymarks per country: Austria - 113 Albania - 6 Bosnia and Herzegovina - 4 Croatia - 2 Hungary - 1 Italy - 1 Monaco - 14 Montenegro - 2 North Macedonia - 21 Norway - 2 Poland - 1 Serbia - 19 Slovakia - 4 Slovenia - 1 Sweden - 9 With these 200 waymarks I covered 183 different categories, which means that there are a few categories, where I have the first waymark in different countries. For example, I have the first "Official Local Tourism Attractions" waymark in Bosnia & Herzegovina, North Macedonia and Serbia.
  12. 1210 days lonely, the longest per the script output. When I look at the +400 days caches in this output, I suspect many were simply missing for a long time before they got archived. This is not exactly an achievement on my part. A function of where I cache, I qualify at 100, 200, 300 and 400 days. This is about rarely sought, and poorly maintained paddle caches and multis. If no one hunts them, no one DNFs them and they ride the site for years before finally going away.
  13. I posted this in the "Goals for 2021" thread, but will repost as an update in this "Goals for 2020" thread as well: Get my total find count to 2020. My goal for 2019 was to reach 2000 finds; I'm still over 200 away from that goal, and maybe 2020 in 2020 is attainable! I'm at 2050 finds right now, and 50 of those are from 10 Adventure Labs completed. Even without the AL's, I'm right at 2000 now, so this goal is done (unless I decide to go for 2020 finds! That means I need 20 more. Not sure I will accomplish that) Find a cache on Feb. 29 to finish my calendar grid. We filled every day in 2018 except for Feb. 29, and this will be our first opportunity to fill that day since we began geocaching in 2017. Done - we attended an event, found caches, and I even nabbed a FTF for this day! Host an event. We've attended events, but never hosted one. I applied for one of the Celebration events - we'll see if that comes through. I did get one of the Celebration Events, but unfortunately we are still unable to host events like that (there have been a couple of CITO events nearby). I'd still like to host an event, someday. Hide 12 more caches. Same goal as 2019, and I only got 6 hidden then. I'll go for 12 again! I'm not going to make this one - I've hidden 3 this year, plus 1 Adventure Lab, so that's 4 (or 8 depending on how you count it). Either way, I'm short of my goal of 12. Complete at least one Adventure Lab Cache. A few have popped up in reasonable driving distance, and I'm curious to see how it goes. I enjoy Wherigo caches, when they work! Done! I did 10 of these, and also created one that I was awarded.
  14. The Oz Mega Committee , Director of Tourism NT,Mark Crummy, Minister for Tourism Central Australia ,Matt Conlan ,Mayor of Alice Springs ,Damien Ryan and the local Alice Springs caching group are very proud to announce that the OZ MEGA ALICE SPRINGS Geocaching Mega Event is set for Easter , 2017. MEDIA RELEASE The Centre set to cash in on Geocaching Matt Conlan Minister for Central Australia, Minister for Tourism 22 June 2014 Alice Springs has been chosen as the site for an international GPS treasure hunt event which will attract up to 1,500 people from around the world. Minister for Tourism Matt Conlan said he was excited to announce the Geocaching Mega Event will be held at Easter in 2017. “This will be a fantastic event that will bring more tourists to the Centre while also providing invaluable international exposure for our region,” he said. Geocaching is a worldwide phenomenon where participants use GPS technology on smart phones and apps to locate caches of various items at different locations on a type of treasure hunt. Mr Conlan said that there were more than six million geocachers worldwide and 62,000 of those are in Australia. “Tourism organisations around the world are encouraging geocaching to attract visitors and increase engagement with destinations and attractions,’’ he said. “Not only does a treasure hunt encourage visitation, it also enriches a visitor experience and extends the length of stay. “Alice Springs is quickly becoming a hot spot for geocaching and in addition to the announcement of the Mega Event to be held in 2017 was recently the site of the 2,000,000th worldwide ‘Geocache’. “All up there are 240 geocaches placed in Alice Springs and surrounds and about 1500 in the NT. The Territory has some extremely active geocachers – but in this slightly secretive sport, there are three teams in Alice Springs – known as 2 lost souls, Griffs90 and Redcentredazza – that are particularly prominent. “Geocachers are known to love the outdoors – which means walking, trekking, 4WDing, camping, caravanning and fishing all help in the pursuit of tracking and finding the Geocaches. “Many of the people coming to Alice Springs for this event will spend a lot of time travelling around the NT, and seeing a side of the Territory that few people appreciate. These people will become the perfect ambassadors for telling the world about their unique Territory experience – which is often the best kind of advertising.’’ Oz Mega Event Organising Committee member Greg Shaw said a group from the organising committee went to Alice Springs last week to inspect facilities. “The home base will be at Blatherskite Park – which is a brilliant site and the facilities are excellent,’’ Mr Shaw said. “On top of that, the scenery is spectacular around Central Australia, which is perfect to appreciate and explore for people involved in this sport. This sport is growing at a rapid rate and we know those who come to the NT from will have an unforgettable experience.’’ Mayor Damien Ryan said: “With its specular natural landscapes and top class tourism facilities, Alice Springs is the perfect host for the Geocaching Mega Event. We look forward to welcoming participants in 2017 to our iconic outback town.” THE SITE:BLATHERSKITE PARK…… http://blatherskitepark.com.au/ All the details of the 55 acre venue site can been seen here.. Over 200 powered sites will be available, unlimited flat camping spots, plenty of mens and ladies toilets and shower facilities plus security fencing all around. It’s only 2 km’s from the centre of town, has 5 bar mobile reception, on ground caretakers, and stunning views of the mountains seemingly within hands reach. Prices for registration and camping will be similar to our previous similar OZ MEGA events.$2,000 will go into a special fund with Geostuff.com.au for the local “Caching in Alice “ group to use in the 6 months prior to set up plenty of small and medium sizes caches highlighting many spots.This will also compliment their own plans of a large distribution of caches in all directions.There will be a full Fireworks Spectacular using the colourful mountains as as scenic backdrop conducted by Team Crackers http://www.southerncrossfireworks.com.au/home.htm SPONSORS: We welcome on board our Diamond Sponsor in the Alice Springs Council who will play a huge part in the event.

  15. GPSr prices have gone up, and it's getting harder to find something under $200 that isn't the Etrex 10... Oregon 700 or GPSMAP 64s is a good choice but around $250... Or upgrade your current phone to something like the Moto G8 or an Iphone 7, which is around $200 but accurate as any GPSr on the market. You'll get a much nicer cellphone that fully works with geocaching.
  16. My Goals for 2021 are simple: Host a Celebration Event Find the Locationless Cache Hit 1000 Counties Cached in (Currently sitting at 960) Find more than 400 Caches - I typically find 200-300 during most years, but my best year is 700+ so this should be a good (yet achievable) challenge Hide at least 2 more Earth Caches I'll check back in a few months from now and see how I'm doing.
  17. Thanks @Isonzo Karst for the link to the 2020 thread - you saved me some searching! Here are my goals for 2020 from that thread: Get my total find count to 2020. My goal for 2019 was to reach 2000 finds; I'm still over 200 away from that goal, and maybe 2020 in 2020 is attainable! I'm at 2050 finds right now, and 50 of those are from 10 Adventure Labs completed. Even without the AL's, I'm right at 2000 now, so this goal is done! Find a cache on Feb. 29 to finish my calendar grid. We filled every day in 2018 except for Feb. 29, and this will be our first opportunity to fill that day since we began geocaching in 2017. Done - we attended an event, found caches, and I even nabbed a FTF for this day! Host an event. We've attended events, but never hosted one. I applied for one of the Celebration events - we'll see if that comes through. I did get one of the Celebration Events, but unfortunately we are still unable to host events like that (there have been a couple of CITO events nearby). I'd still like to host an event, someday.

Complete at least one Adventure Lab Cache. A few have popped up in reasonable driving distance, and I'm curious to see how it goes. I enjoy Wherigo caches, when they work! Done! I did 10 of these, and also created one that I was awarded. It looks like I managed to meet the goals that enhanced my personal stats, but fell short on the goals that contribute to the community (event, hide caches). My goals for 2021 will focus on building the community, it looks like!!
  18. Another page, left open all day. In the last minute, it went from 38 to 100 to 200 MB (!) simply by me scrolling a bit, up-and-down with the scroll-wheel click for smooth scrolling, entirely within the (moderately long-winded) cache description, and pointedly above the logs area which are loaded dynamically. (They were already fully loaded a while ago.) Stand back, she's gonna blow! 275. Yesterday I tried to diagnose this with the inspector, but trying to display a report (can't remember which) triggered a runaway page-file top-up, which I aborted just before the file filled (7GB of 8), and I aborted quickly, well as quickly as possible given the duress. Not sure how Linux handles a full page file; no app has ever taken me that high... PgDn, PgUp. 356. Anything I should look for in the inspector? This is incredibly repeatable. (Or are you sick of hearing from me?) 363. PgDn, PgUp. 450 MB. Aborting.
  19. Finally after many years, King Pellinore breaks the 200 caches found barrier. He found his first cache in 08/25/2001 and quickly became one of NJ's top cachers. Petering out at the end of 2006, his long hiatus (until 2019) was broken by a single find in 2013 of https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC3A1QK_block-head He has been getting around a bit, adding states to his geocaching collection. Who knows, he might even place another cache!
  20. 200 finds in 10 minutes. Maybe a time-stopping machine as well
  21. Hello, It looks like you have done some machine translation on the Finnish language version of geocaching.com website. The most blatant errors are on the page Profile - (My) statistics,. but the errors seem to repeat all over the place. The new translations are incorrect, unprofessional, way below your previous high standard, and confusing. Can you please revert back to the old Finnish translations as soon as possible? The problems are: Incorrect translations for the word 'cache' (examples below) Multiple incorrect and misleading translations (e.g. for find stats and for the different cache types) (examples below) Incorrectly conjugated words (examples below) Mismatched conjugations, adjective-noun agreements and English langauge prepositions mixed in. 1. Incorrectly translated 'cache" The word Cache translates in Finnish as 'kätkö' (a hide) or geokätkö, instead of 'kontti' (a Docker container, or an ocean container, meaning the standardized transportation container) or a 'välimuisti' (the temporary cache file on your computer). Currently the profile page has interesting translations such as "Olet löytänyt 3500 välimuistia ensimmäisestä välimuistihakuistasi 08.04.20XX" . (=You have discovered 3500 temporary files since your first temporary file search 08.04.20XX.) or Löytämäni konttityypit = The types of ocean containers I have found. 2. Multiple incorrect translations The profile part describing the streaks, slumps, best days, etc. is now unreadable. Etsi hinta --> translates as "Find price" and is misleading. What price am I supposed to find? 1.1089 välimuistia / päivä --> translates as (xx temporary cache files / day) Pisin juova --> Now translates as "Longest stripe" and is meaningless 32 peräkkäistä päivää löytöillä 13.07.2017 - 13.08.2017 --> The word löytö is now incorrectly conjugated. Pisin romahdus --> Now translates as "Longest collapse" and is meaningless 361 peräkkäistä päivää ilman löytöä 17.04.2012 - 13.04.2013 Nykyinen juova --> Now translates as "Current stripe" and is meaningless 2 peräkkäistä päivää löytöillä 28.11.2020 lähtien Nykyinen romahdus --> Now translates as "Current collapse" and is meaningless. 0 peräkkäistä päivää ilman löytöä The profile part describing the finds nearest/farthest from home has multiple incorrect translations. E.g. "Löydä Kaukin itä (pääministeriltä)" now translates as "Find *remoteist (from the prime minister)" 3. Incorrect conjugations, mismatched conjugations, etc. The following serve as examples: 200 kätköt marraskuu of 2016 --> "Kätköt" is ungrammatical, should be "kätköä", and what's the English preposition "of" doing here? 2 peräkkäistä päivää löytöillä 28.11.2020 lähtien --> "Löytöillä" for the noun "löytö" is not grammatical. Cumulative finds per month --"Kumulatiiviset löydöt kuukaudessa" has mismatched adjective-noun agreement There are multiple other examples on this page, but currently the same problems seem to repeat on other Finnish language pages as well. As said, this is way below your (up until now) fluent everyday Finnish language. Please revert to the old translations, or have someone re-translate the pages properly using the old translations as reference. Thanks already in advance!
  22. Celebrate 20 years of geocaching at Community Celebration Events Beginning today, eligible geocachers can apply to host Community Celebration Events in 2020. These events will enable cachers around the world to commemorate the 20th anniversary of geocaching with a new icon and souvenir. This cache type was originally known as the Lost and Found Event Cache. It was created for events that were hosted by geocachers from April 30, 2010 to May 3, 2010 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of geocaching. Just 362 Lost and Found Events were held, so a very limited number of cachers earned the icon. We’re excited that many thousands more cachers will have a chance to celebrate a big anniversary and get the redesigned icon in 2020! To be eligible to apply to host a Community Celebration Event, you must meet the following criteria: Attendance: You must have attended at least two (2) Events or CITOs within the last three (3) years (between December 2, 2016 and December 2, 2019). Activity: You must have logged a cache within the past six (6) months (between June 2, 2019 and December 2, 2019). If you meet the criteria, apply via the opt-in page by June 3, 2020. If you own multiple Geocaching.com accounts, please apply with only one account. Each month from January through October, at least 2,020 hosts will be randomly selected from those who opt-in (with geographic distribution). If selected, you will receive one of 20,200 or more Community Celebration Events! All official community volunteers (reviewers, moderators, and translators), and the primary accounts for all 2020 Mega- and Giga-Events will receive a Celebration Event. Winners must host events between May 2, 2020 and December 31, 2020. Events must be a minimum of two hours, and cannot overlap with events associated with a Mega- or Giga-Event. For more guidance, see the Help Center article on Community Celebration Events. Between Community Celebration Events and the Geocaching 20th Anniversary Celebration in Seattle, 2020 is shaping up to be quite a party! Here are answers to some common questions: How did you choose the number of Community Celebration Events to be released worldwide? Since we’re turning 20 in the year 2020, we think the best way to celebrate is with more than 20,200 birthday parties around the world! To provide the best experience for all attendees and to prevent over-saturation, we’re offering a limited, special release of the icon. Why are you distributing 2,020 per month, instead of giving them all at once? We believe there will be a lot of excitement about publishing these events. We want to distribute the effort of reviewing them by community volunteer reviewers over time. And we hope this helps minimizes people choosing the same date and time for their event. I just submitted my request for a Community Celebration Event Cache, when will I find out whether I receive one? The applicants selected to host a Community Celebration Event will be notified via email between January and October 2020. If you misplace the email, the Event page will be created on your Geocaching.com account and will display in your list of unpublished caches. Applicants who are not selected will not be notified. I don’t qualify to host a Community Celebration Event, what can I do? You may not qualify to host this particular cache type, but you are still eligible to host a regular Event Cache with your own celebration theme! I want to celebrate a geocaching anniversary on a specific date, what can I do? Unfortunately, selected event hosts won’t be determined ahead of time, so we are unable to honor requests for cachers with a specific date in mind. We recommend hosting a regular Event Cache with your own celebration theme, instead. I received the opportunity to host a Community Celebration Event Cache, how soon can I submit it to my reviewer for publishing? Community Celebration Events may be submitted for review up to six (6) months and no less than two (2) weeks in advance of your chosen Event date. How long do I have to submit my Community Celebration Event Cache for review? Events may be hosted May 2, 2020 through December 31, 2020. The final date to submit the cache page of your Community Celebration Event is December 17, 2020. I just logged drafts for finding a cache or attending Events or CITOs, why don’t I qualify to host this Event? All logging activity must have occurred prior to December 2, 2019 to qualify. Although the date of your draft may have been before this date, the date you submitted the draft is ineligible. How do I find a Community Celebration Event happening near me? We’re glad you asked! View a list of Community Celebration Events here. (This information is also available in the Geocaching Blog.)
  23. Hi, I know this question gets asked a lot but I'm looking for recommendations on a GPS to use for geocaching. I'm still mostly new to this and used to use my phone but recently had to switch to a cheap $50 Samsung and it gets cranky and freezes a lot so geocaching wouldn't be the best for it. I don't ha routerloginve much money and I'm looking for something hopefully less than $200. Thanks in advance for any help y'all can provide.
  24. Hallo, sorry für meinen absichtlich provokativen Titel. Ich kenne mich in der Natur meiner Region sehr gut aus und hätte ein paar absolut unbekannte, geniale Locations und entsprechend spannende Cache-Ideen dafür. Nun ist es so, dass in einigen Fällen nur wenige Meter entfernt solche "hirnlosen" Dosen von jemandem "versteckt" wurden, der auf die sehenswerte Landschaft keinerlei Rücksicht genommen hat, sich offenbar auch weder auskennt noch damit beschäftigt und vielmehr ein so großartiges Ziel verfolgt, beispielsweise ein riesiges, nur am Rechner sichtbares Ei aus 200 Dosen in der Landschaft zu platzieren. Nun könnte man natürlich sagen, jeder wie er mag. Allerdings lautet die Geocaching-Überregel doch "Denke darüber nach, warum Du Leute an einen Ort führst, wenn Du einen Geocache versteckst. Wenn der Geocache der einzige Grund ist, finde einen besseren Ort." Natürlich interessiert das die Massendosenverteiler nicht die Bohne. Vermutlich wurden von der Community schon öfter Versuche gestartet, das komplette Zumüllen der Landschaft auszuhebeln. Woran scheitert das? Können oder wollen die Betreiber des Spiels nicht gegen das Brechen dieser eigentlich elementaren Grundregel vorgehen? Mir ist natürlich schon klar, dass ein "sehenswerter" Ort sehr subjektiv ist. Aber ein Kreis, der sich aus zahllosen Baumstümpfen, Straßenschildern und Leitplankenpfosten ergibt, legt ja relativ eindeutig den Schluss nahe, dass es hier nicht um den Baumstumpf geht... Vermutlich wurde das unter den Forums-Usern schon oft und ausführlich diskutiert, aber ich habe leider keinen entsprechenden Thread gefunden. Cheers Jörg
  25. Wondering if anyone in the St. Louis area would mind hunting down a TB from a recently archived cache? It may not even be there, as it may have been muggled right before the cache was archived. Not sure. Cache is (was) the TB Chateau at GCRDJD. TB is TB7797W. She's travelled more than 20,000 miles from Missouri all the way to Hawaii and back, up through the east coast, only to make it within 200 miles of her goal to get back home to us before this happened. We'd love to see her again. She's a seahorse travelling with a froggy friend on the same chain. We know it's a long shot, but if there's even a slim chance that she might be able to make it home, we have to try!! Thanks!!
