  1. Not sure if you can talk about this or not, but my morbid curiosity has gotten the best of me here. Was he dumped there or did he die out hiking and noone knew where he was? I feel almost ashamed for asking, ,but your story is so fascinating I cannot help myself.
  2. Yes the authorities were notified and the remains have been taken away. That would be weird finding a skull next to the cache. The identity of the man was found. His family( mother) called me once to talk. It was a bit weird but it helped her out a lot. I have gotten X-mas card from them. Strange but I just got back checking on that cache just today. Someone was interested in more details. Not many except that I almost picked the skull up with my hands, but moved it with a stick first, that is when I noticed the jaw and that it was not an animal. Now I almost look for out of place things. It was a horrible discovery but in the long run it helped the family put things to rest.
  3. Some of the forums I have read regarding FRS vs CB were inconclusive which could range further. Of course, a CB back at your vehicle with a well tuned whip antenna is going to beat the socks off of FRS. But for general handheld use the difference isnt supposed to be too much. The smallest handheld CB radios I am aware of use at least EIGHT AA batteries, versus either 3 or 4 AA or AAA batteries for FRS. I used a 300mw (not even full power of 500 mw) pager sized FRS radio to talk to a kid more than 8 miles away. I was in the middle of Albuquerque and he was on nearby Sandia Peak. That is about the best case of line of sight you can get. I think I could have been twice that distance from him and still been able to communicate, he sounded like he was in the street in front of my house. It all depends on the density of the terrain. But even in heavy woods I havent heard much less than 3/4 mile reported from people with high quality FRS units. GMRS is much more powerful and has better than double the advertized range of FRS, and those units are getting smaller all the time. The prices are in line with high end FRS radios. But the smallest GMRS is still more than twice as big as the FRS radios I am using now, so I doubt I personally will bother to switch any time soon. here is a link to lots of user reviews on FRS radios: http://members.tripod.com/~jwilkers/review.html Here is a general overview on the same site: http://members.tripod.com/~jwilkers/choose.html [This message has been edited by Gliderguy (edited 13 August 2001).]
  4. at because I found another, larger trail leading in the right direction. It brought me out to a scenic view of the river and the stone foundation of some old house. I had used the last picture on the camera at the stream, so I didn't get any other pictures that day. The picture below is one taken from someone else who found the cache the next day. It is looking up the Chattahoochee River with some people kayaking. The foundation still had steps that were a great place for me to catch my breath again. When I got to moving again, I was about 500' from the cache. The trail was a narrow trail going uphill at a modest grade. I followed the trail up towards the crest of the hill, stopping 3 times to catch my breath. At the crest was another trail, which I took to within 80 feet of my destination. From there it was all downhill. The cache was down somewhere in the ravine, so I worked my way down through thick underbrush. At one point the GPS showed my distance at only 4' but I never found the cache. I worked my way up and down that hillside for probably an hour. There were so many tree stumps and little granite bluffs that it could have been hidden in. Plus I was so exhausted that I couldn't see straight. The forest canopy was so thick that I got erratic readings, at best, out of the GPS. I finally decided to call it quits and head back. I knew I just wasn't going to find it that day. So, I clipped the GPS on my belt and headed downhill. I knew there was a stream below, so I could just go downhill until I found the stream and then follow it to the river and the main trail. Well, the going got tougher the further down I went. The underbrush was like a jungle and when I finally reached the stream, it was a 4 foot drop-off to a swollen, muddy creek. The water was too muddy and was flowing fast, so I knew I couldn't chance jumping down into it. Plus, the area of the creek was overgrown with shrubs and there were 3-6' blind dropoffs along the way because of the granite bluffs I mentioned earlier. So, unfortunately it was back up hill for me. I stumbled several times and slid downhill, and generally fought tooth and nail to get halfway up the hill. I had to stop and catch my breath again and when I did, I realized that my GPS was gone. It must have been knocked off of my belt one of the times I stumbled! Well, you know what that means..... back downhill again. I retraced my steps and looked everywhere, but never did find the GPS. By this time my t-shirt, bluejeans, and boots were completely drenched with sweat and covered with ground-in Georgia clay. I was exhausted. I knew that I had to get started back to the truck or I was going to have to lay down and sleep on the trail. I had used up the last of my water already, so I knew I couldn't stay in the heat much longer. I had to give up my search for the $109 GPS and get back to the truck for fresh water and air conditioning. You know I had to have been tired and hot for a cheapscate like me to leave that much money laying on a hillside. Well, I made it up to the crest of the hill again and took the trail downhill to the old stone foundation. I stopped, rested, and looked at a map. Luckily I had a compass to help guide me, because I wasn't about to try to climb up the difficult trail by the creek. This time, I realized that the map was marked with lines to show the difficulty rating of the trails. ..... Was an average trail . _ . _ . _ Was a moderate trail _ _ _ _ Was a difficult trail Of course, the ones I chose to take me to the destination were the straightest path, but also were the difficult trails. There were no "average" trails, so I picked out a moderate trail to follow back. There were two choices, one going uphill and one going along the river. I went along the river, because it was the flattest. Well, that lasted for about 100 yards. The path went by the base of a 100' granite cliff. The river was swollen and muddy from heavy rain and had covered the path. I might have been able to wade through for a ways to the other side, but I wasn't going to take a chance on that muddy ole river. Since I don't climb granite cliffs, I had to turn back and take a different trail. This trail ended up being moderate, but it was all uphill in that direction. I stopped halfway up and took an extended break. My cell phone rang (I carry it for emergencies) and it was Julie. It was already 5:00 so I had been trudging through the forest for 3 hours! It was nice to talk to her and whine of my poor luck and misfortune. I told her I wanted to get another GPS, and she agreed (what else was she gonna say when I was so down!). With that short rest and new determination, I headed back uphill. The trail reached the same junction where I had chosen the really steep trail (the path less travelled). You know, if I would have only chosen this path back then... There were 4 trails, so I had to look at the map and use the compass to find the right one, which I did and trodded along. The trails from this point back to the truck were much more forgiving and I made it back in good time. I got home that evening before Julie did and logged my visit at geocaching.com. I told of how I had fallen and lost my GPS and gave my email address and offered a small reward. There were two other visitors that evening and three the next day. Luckily, someone found it and were nice enough to say so! They emailed me and left a phone number to call. I'll call them this evening and find a way to retrieve it. Oh, and just my luck the UPS guy just dropped off my new one from Amazon.com! Gee, so now I have a "backup" to get me out of the woods when I lose my GPS - haha!
  5. Not much caching due to FMD, but I'm happy to talk. Contact me on schwuk@schwuk.com ------------------ How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
  6. I have a pair of Motorola FRS Talkabout 250 and like them alot. Good range. They claim that they have a 2 mile range with line of sight. I have found that I get about 1.5 range reliably with line of site and about a mile in heavy tree cover. My father has a pair of the Motorola FRS 60 radios. They have similar perfomance but a few different features. Both units run for at least 24 hours of standby time on three AA batteries. The Talkabout 250 can use voice activate hand free system were the 60 you must still press the button to talk. The 60 has a call feature were each person can pick a unique call tone. There are a few newer version out there that might have other features. I have not used the other brands but a friend had a pair audiovox unit and they seemed to work well with my Motorola units on a day of skiing. Just remember that Motorola developed the FRS radio system for what that's worth. But for the price, range and unit size you get with the FRS radio I would suggest the FRS radios over a handheld CB.

    Software and other Questions

    personally the more magellon units i see the more impressed with them i become, garmin units are nice, dont get me wrong i love my vista, but i think for a beginner that the superior antena on the mag. units plus ease of use might make them superior, but my opinion gets swayed every time i see the shiny marbles that keep falling out of my ears....lol just make sur you go to a reputable sporting goods store and talk to as many geocachers that use the units ...even ask to go caching with them, we love showing off our skills at tracking down wild caches, to neophytes, and then make an informed choice on what suits your needs best. hope i didnt confuse you too much, Elwood

    Map330 map out of alignment

    Enjoy the hunt, and if you find any *really* good caches around there, talk about it. I'm close enough that I might make a run through that area if there are any really good ones.

    Is publicity a good thing?

    Not much choice in South Africa as it hasn't taken off yet. I'm actively seeking media coverage and will finally get an interview on Radio 702, our largest talk radio station. (Not me, I don't do public speaking!) Unfortunately when the media bites, they don't let go. So once you get the media you want, you can't control it from then on ... So yes, the fast growth because of the publicity could be a bad thing, but I don't see any other way of doing it. At least the Early Cachers have debated many issues and come to excellent conclusions that should help ... 1/2c ------------------ Peter Scholtz www.biometrics.co.za
  11. Hello, picked up a few caches my self and also planted a few. Scotty quote:Originally posted by hsabbers:Hello all, I'm a journalist working on geocaching-related piece for a well-known UK magazine. I'm hoping to make contact with UK-based geocaching enthusiasts prepared to talk me about their experiences and endeavours as regards this new sport. Thanks in advance. Harry Sabbers.

    Monday..........

    I saw a small article in "Trail Runner" magazine about this site on Monday. Even though it did give the pros and cons about caching.....so called "destruction" of wildlife.... I immediately hopped on the website. Tuesday I did a little research during the day and went out that night and bought an ETrex. Wednesday I went geocaching for the first time. I didn't get out of work until 6, and by the time I got out there it was just about dusk. Although the darkness prevented me from finding it I will be back there early tomorrow morning. I was so close I could smell it......... dadgum......... Thank you to the rocket scientist who came up with this sport. Can't wait till the weekend so I can pick a new quest to shoot for. Talk to you soon Dave M.

If you would like to see a good example of a well controlled chat area look at momsonline.com. I do think that they can be overly strict sometimes, but I know for one that I can go there anytime and find nice people to talk to. I don't go to any other chat area. They allow men...LOL... so check it out.

    Monday..........

    Ya........it is ironic. I went to go see Dave at Giants stadium June 11, but I didnt want to go to Meadows. I am in the running for a certain job that is really strict on drug use. I went to all three Meadows shows last year and they were too smokey..... both kinds......so I just decided on NJ this year. Man do I love the Lillywhite sessions.......Everyday what?... almost forgot what that record sounded like!!!! again.... talk to you soon...... Dave P.S. I do have quite a few bootlegs....this could turn into a fun way to trade!!! Let me know [This message has been edited by DMBfan (edited 08 August 2001).]
  15. Hey Clayjar ... we seem to be the only one's typing here ... people are going start to talk ...
  16. Cacher stooping to commercialism? I don't think so. It's ClayJar the guy who's been trying to get on Car Talk for years stooping to geocaching to get on the show.

    Who Do You Blame?

    or and I can prove it.) My very first hunt with two of my kids was a complete failure. The terrain was worse than we were led to expect and we never did find the cache. The reason: Cacher left the wrong coordinates (confirmed and corrected by cacher.) Talk about leaving a bad taste in your mouth! Yeah, the cacher may get a reading, but what if his accuracy is really low because of a lack of acquisitions. I'd even check my coordinates against a topo map to make sure they were correct.

    Hunt # 2 with 330 and the 76........

    I got through on the first call. Time on hold less than 10 min. In fact I had another call come in for me on another line and put them on hold(thinking it would be a long time as I've heard talk of) and when I came back HE was waiting for me. They were very nice and did not hesitate to say send it in. They also said send in the ext. ant. And gave me their FED-EX shippers #. I called 8:00 am their time on Tuesday. And another trick I use when its hard to get through is............ When it says press 1 for???? Don't press any key. This way it sends you through right away like someone with a rotary dial. Try it it works most times.

    Post your testimonials HERE

    I'm a 40 year old mother of 4. For the past year or so I've been looking for an activity that my entire family can do together. It's not easy to find something that fits that need for ages ranging from 8 to 45. When I first read about geocaching, it sounded like a neat idea, but I didn't realize how much my kids would enjoy it. Now we spend 1 or 2 weekends a month hunting caches in our area. We have been to parks that we have always heard about, or driven by, but never had a "reason" to stop and see. We've found a real great playground in Walton, KY (Picnic in the park cache), learned a lot about the first settlers in our area (Pioneers Honor cache), and discovered an amazing view of our city from Devou Park in KY (Cinti Vista cache). This past week while on vacation in KY we actually saw a bald eagle at Cave Run Lake because we were out hiking for a cache (Daniel Boone #2). And if it hadn't been for looking for the cache we would never have been on the trail, much less stopped at the lake. My kids have learned to hike responsibly (we "cache in and trash out"), seen numerous animals (deer, turtle, fox, etc), and this is one family activity, that while being good for us, they actually enjoy. An added benefit is that I've found that on those hikes we actually spend a lot of time talking to each other. I've learned a lot about whats really going on at school, with friends, etc since we started geocaching. Also this is a sport where skill level doesn't have anything to do with age. Often the kids figure out where the cache is before the adults do. We've also placed some caches, and the kids have learned quite a bit about responsiblity with checking on them, replacing worn out or soaked logs, cameras that have been used up, etc. We talk about where to place our caches so that there is minimal impact to the environment, and will periodically move our caches if it looks like a trail is being worn to them. I'd like to think that if we go at this responsibly the BLM will see this for what it is - a wholesome family activity that gets people to enjoy (often) less well know portions of our public park system. I sure know I'm not sure what we'd be able to replace this with if we couln't do it anymore.
  20. You've been trying to get on Car Talk for years, and the closest you've gotten is this week, when you very well might get on the show (find out tomorrow). What is my question? My tires are just about due for a replacement, and I need to know what kind to buy, since I've been driving all over the place since I've picked up this new hobby called geocaching.

    EasyGPS Problems

    In the easygps preferences, make sure that you have the GPS type set to the correct model for your GPSR. Also, the fact that you can see NMEA data in hyperterminal means that the receive data and ground wires in your home made cable are okay, but it doesn't prove that transmit data works. I also have a home made cable, and it sometimes gives me problems. Every time I start to use easygps with that cable, the first step I take after starting the program is to click on GPS Version info which is under the GPS menu. This option talks to the GPSR and asks it to transmit back its make, model, and software version number. If this step works, then I know for a fact that the GPSR and easygps can talk to each other. WHen it doesn't work, I know my cable needs reseating...
  23. Don't know about the Boy Scouts, but the Girl Scouts have a badge called "Finding Your Way". When my troop earned it this June we added in how to use a GPS after we finished up the compass work. After we had that down we went out and located a cache, and then placed our own. From my perspective, as a leader, while the badge work taught them some really good skills (map reading & compass work), the geocaching made it really fun - and they now had to use the map reading and compass work in addition to the GPS. On top of it all they've really enjoyed following their cache ("East of the Fork and West of the Spoon") this summer. It's made for lots of talk.
  24. I'm trying to figure out why these topics are 95% thoughtful discourse and 5% generalization and namecalling. If I spit in your face would you want to talk to me? Or compromise? Come on. to: bbnot2busy I prefer to keep the toys in the caches. That's what a geocache is and should be. I don't think it's the size of the cache that is the issue but the existence of one. to: navdog Not sure what a permit would mean. That's what compromises are all about. I would expect optimally would be to speak with a land manager to find out the "safe areas" and hide them there. Jeremy

I did just that at the last meeting of my MOMS club playgroup and am thinking of selecting a geocaching walk in the local park (where we plan to plant a cache soon) for one of the future playgroup days that is my pick! You know, I fully expected hubby to chat with some of the other dads at or Summer Bash this past Saturday and talk GeoCaching up, but instead he listened in on an aviation discussion! Will be inviting one of the playgroup families along for a hunt soon anyway because I was sure it was right up her alley, and when I told her about it her eyes just lit up! And in my case, it's the 2-year-old that's 27 pounds, and the second won't be born for several months yet! The toddler loves to go "treasure hunting!"
