  1. Ein echter Cacher ist der, der das alles so sieht - und tut - wie ich. Nöh, natürlich Quatsch, sorry. Eigentlich kann ich da ja jetzt nur verlieren - selbst wenn ich das irgendwie mit sprachlichen Mitteln einigermassen in die Reihe kriege, kann man da natürlich immer bei irgendeinem Begriff, Redewendung o.ä. "ja, aber......" sagen. Aber ich versuchs mal Zuallererst muss man - um eventuellen Missverständnissen zuvorzukommen - wohl beschreiben, was das NICHT ist. Es zielt da nicht auf Cachearten ("Mysterys/Multis/Tradis sind grundsätzlich doof"), auch nicht auf die Frage, ob jemand lange oder kurze Logs schreibt, ob jemand viele oder wenige Cache gefunden oder versteckt hat und auch nicht, ob man Caches vom Thema (oder an Location) X lieber hätte als Y oder andere Vorlieben. Man kann nicht alles, es interessiert einen nicht alles - aber das andere kann trotzdem ein toller Cache sein. Und - VOR ALLEM ANDEREN - ist das keine Wertung der Person. Ich kenne viele, die belanglose Caches in viel zu hoher Zahl hinter die belanglosesten Büsche werfen - aber die mag ich gerne, freue mich, wenn ich die draussen mal sehe und/oder trink mit denen auf nem Event meist zuviele Schorle und rede Blödsinn. Und wenn ich mal über so einen Cache mitten auf dem Waldweg auffinden, werde ich versuchen rauszukriegen, wo der hingehört und den wieder deponieren - oder ich nehm den mit und benachrichtige den Owner oder leiste bei Bedarf erste Hilfe. Es ist ein gemeinsames Spiel - und ein "das ist m.Es nicht wirklich gut, was Du da machst" genügt ja nicht zur Ablehnung der Person und auch nicht zur Aufweichung des spielerischen Miteinanders. Das ist eher so wie der Kumpel, der beim Kicken vorne aber wirklich NIE abgibt. So - und jetzt ein wenig Geschichte. Angefangen hat das (deutlich vor mir) bei GC auf der ersten Seite mit dem Anliegen, Caches an interessante Orte zu legen. Die zu teilen. Step one "Location, Location, Location" und "wenn der Cache der einzige Grund ist, die Leute hinzuführen - such nen anderen Ort." Das kombiniert mit der "Presseerklärung" Cachen ist Abenteuer und Erlebnis usw. - da war die Absicht und der Antrieb denn doch klar - und vor allem war das den meisten Mitspielern eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Da war ein Powertrail, ja sogar Caches hintereinander vom selben Owner VERBOTEN .Wurden nicht veröffentlicht. Um dem auszuweichen (und anscheinend der Hyperaktivität ein Ventil zu geben) , begannen dann manche, in einigen Wäldern die Fields of Fame anzuleiern - quasi ein PT immer von einem anderen Owenr - wechselseitig gelegt. War zwar auch eher flach - aber nur ne Randerscheinung. Und dann fiel das mit dem PT-Verbot. Und ab da gabs zigmal soviele Caches - und zig neue Cacher, die DAS als Cachen betrachteten - und deshalb da weitermachten (ob PT oder einfach Petling hinter Baum 14, weil hier mnoch keiner liegt) , was wiederum ähnliche Leute anzog. Die dann auch .... und und und..... Und da simmer jetzt. Und jetzt wirds schwer Ich versuch mich mal an einem nur halb passenden (- aber mein Lieblings - ) Beispiel. Wenn ich mich dazu entschliesse, bei den Modellsegelfliegern mitzumachen, dann ist es doch eher selbstverständlich, dass ich daran arbeite, dass mein Flieger in die Luft kommt, dass ich vielleicht irgendwann nen besseren habe, oder den, den ich habe, irgendeinen Ticken besser oder schöner oder eigenartiger mache oder das Ding ein bisschen besser fliegen kann . Kurz - ich strenge mich da an, das zu beherrschen, das so gut zu machen, wie ich kann. Und mich nicht damit begnügen, dass ich nen Clubausweis habe und nen Papierflieger basteln (oder "über den Wolken" pfeifen ) kann. Und vor allem - das muss mir doch niemand SAGEN! Es ist ein selbstgewähltes Hobby - und da ist das doch ist doch das selbstverständlich. Das mag in der Realität bei 3 von 10 Punkten stehenbleiben, weil ichs nicht besser hinkriege - aber das ist völlig egal. Ich hab mich "angestrengt" und versucht, ein wenig was rauszuholen. Das sehe ich beim Cachen in weiten Teilen nicht mehr. Wenn die Dose ein irgendwo hingelegter Mikro ist, wo man dann geschwind die Koordinaten nimmt, zwei Zeilen lang ein "da war noch Platz" - oder "das ist meine liebste Hunderunde" Listing textet und damit den Reviewprozess unfallfrei durchläuft (und bei ner Runde oder PT da gerne immer dasselbe ausser der Nummer) , dann ist das zwar theoretisch ein Cache - aber eigentlich ist das eben kein Produkt eines Cachers*. Es gibt ja ausser der berühmt/berüchtigten "Location" ja noch andere Dinge, wo man sich anstrengen kann - das hat sich auch sinnvollerweise in Richtung "Erlebnis" entwickelt - ob das nun das Erreichen der Dose oder das Lösen einer Aufgabe oder das Aufbauen eines Technikspieles oder ein freches Versteck oder ne gebastelte Dose oder oder oder sein. Aber halt nicht das maximal denkbare Minimum. Und ich verstehe auch nicht, das man da draussen zig wirklich tolle Dosen mit Erlebnissen und Locations und Mehrwert präsentiert kriegt und legt dann selbst etwas gerade so knapp über den Grundbedürfnissen. Und das ist für mich auch - abseits Kritik an manch anderem - die grösste Empfindung : Unverständnis. Es ist ja keine Pflicht, Dosen zu legen. OK, man kann sagen, vielen ist das genug - Liste runterladen, hintraben, ein wenig Dose suchen und finden, Stempel oder Kürzel rein, auf dem Gerät das voreingestellte E-Log losschicken - und weiter. Und am Ende steht da sogar manchmal ein schöner Weg und ein Erlebnis, der aus dem Cachetag und dem Draussensein mit den Kumpels besteht. Aber das ist nicht ein Erlebnis beim Cache. Und um DAS gehts eigentlich. Und das ist bei ganz wenig "Mühe" möglich und leicht. Wir reden hier nicht über einen hochkpomplizierten Multi und nicht über die Location "Zugspitze" - sondern eher die Location "guckt mal - eine riesige Eiche/ein kapellchen/ein alte Schleuse/whatever" - und das ist oft nur 50 Meter weg von dem Döschen der "Runde", die da geworfen wurde. Und man kommt als Sucher mit etwas mehr Wissen und Erlebnis nach hause als nur nach dem Piepsen sich einmal gebückt zu haben. Und das ist das Ziel - anderen was zu geben. Und wie schon gesagt - man muss das nicht erklären - es ist eigentlich selbstverständlich. Ich hab das mal scherzhafterweise das "Cacher-Gen" getauft. Man kapiert das wunderbare Spiel - und sofort drängen sich einem Möglichkeiten auf - da kann ich den Leuten den kleinen Weiher zeigen - da oben auf dem Hügel hätte ein Ortsfremder ne wunderbare Übersicht - ob jemand weiss, dass es hier eine Straussenfarm gibt - wir hatten doch hier mal das Geländespiel gemacht - mein Opa hat mir erzählt, da gäbe es.... bis hin zu "wenn man da was installieren würde, wo man dann das macht und dann das und dann passiert das..... Und lustigerweise haben 90 % der Muggels, denen man was vom Cachen erzählt, genau die selben Reflexe. Auf den Gedanken, alle 200 Meter einen Petling zu legen oder ne Runde zu bedosen nur um der Dose - in den Wald rein, hinten rum und wieder zurück, kommen nur Leute, die "cachen gehen ". Vielleicht ist ja DAS der Unterschied. So mir reichts - ich hätte doch meinen Schreibbmaschinenkurs fertig machen sollen Gruss und bis bald im Wald Zappo *ausser, damit wäre die Spitze seiner Leistungsfähigkeit erreicht - dann wäre das voll ok.
  2. Well I installed the app today. Did a first adventure lab nearby. And then found out that this totally screwed up my Geocache-Score. Gladly found out how to delete the adventure lab logs. How dumb is it, to score 5 points for one (!) adventure? This AL I did, was nice and easy. Maybe 200 metres for all 5 stations... Now I need to decide, to give the app another try with a different or new account or to wait and see, until this bug is corrected and fixed. But seeing my real geocaching-score getting screwed up big time was really annoying.

  4. No! No! No! No! No! Those devices are ancient. They require special cables. They aren't inherently geocaching compatible. And they don't really give you a taste of how modern GPS units function. If you are going to take the legacy route, go no farther back than the oldest models that support USB mass storage mode, gpx file support, and paperless geocaching. The eTrex 20/30, the Oregon 200/300, the (defunct) Colorado series, or the gpsMap62. Those are the oldest models we should be recommending to new users looking to save on a GPS. Anything else is like recommending your grandparents buy an Apple IIe as their first computer in 2021.
  5. I am member of a geocaching telegram group where other members were discussing this new "trend" only recently. I couldn't imagine why owners would have to create such an ALC until exactly one of those was released in my area (Central Germany) a few days ago. The first stage is 35 km away from me, the next one is located 200 km north. One is 300 km further west, one is in the Netherlands and one on a tiny island in the ocean near Montenegro! I asked the owner what his intention is and whether players would have to travel to all of these places. His answer was: "You don't have to. Nobody forces you." I don't understand the owner's intention or the point of ALCs like this. In my opinion, it is impossible to complete them without fake GPS.
  6. Die Meinung darf er auch haben, OHNE irgendeinen Cache gefunden zu haben. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass seine Meinung wirklich als gewichtig empfunden wird, ist halt grösser, wenn er das als wirklich erfahrener Aktiver "aus dem Spiel" heraus macht. Ich unterstelle mal :), dass HHL das meinte. Das ist eben nicht dasselbe. Wobei so am Rande - jedesmal, wenn ich mit nem völlig cachefernen Muggel so übers Cachen ins Erzählen komme, kommt der mit "ha, dann könnte man doch......" und da sind dann immer bessere und gehaltvollere Ideen dabei als vieles, was da draussen so rumliegt und die Idee, entlang eines stinknormalen Waldwegrunde alle 200 Meter eine Dose hinzulegen, ist Lichtjahre weit weg. DAS fällt tatsächlich niemand ein, wenn es um Möglichkeiten geht, was das Speil so bietet. DAFÜR muss man schon Cacher sein Gruss Zappo
  7. I don't know whether there's anything similar in other parts of the world, but here (New South Wales, Australia), for outdoor gatherings above the freely-allowed limit (currently 200 people), the organisers can complete and lodge a COVID-safe plan which then allows up to 5000 people.
  8. Hello everyone, We recently started geocaching again with a friend of ours. At the moment we just use our phone to geoache, but we would like to upgrade to a walking gps. We tried the gpsmap 62s this weekend, and we liked it very much. After reading a lot of reviews, I am still doubting between 2 devices. We can get the Garmin etrex 32x for €144. Advantages: 25h battery, preloaded topomaps of europe, electronic compass We can also buy the gpsmap 64sx for €200. Advantages: electronic compass, faster scrolling and zooming, great antenna. I'm scared that the etrex 32x is slower than the gpsmap 64sx and that it will bother us. I also couldn't find anything about the difference in accuracy for these 2 devices. We geocache about 1 time per week, and we also love to go walking long naturewalks. Is there anyone who can help us decide wich gps to get with geocaching in mind?
  9. Remember that in a reddit post that there were over 200 million players as of March 2021. Could be right or wrong.
  10. The trackable situation is kinda grazy at the moment. I´m relatively new with 78 finds and 8 Tb´s moved so far, but I saw a lot of Tb´s dissappeared, some were logged at a different cache. I write many notes for missing Tb´s (one of them was discovered again after months a couple of hundred kilometers away from the last known location), I saw a cacher who allegedly took a Tb to more than 100 caches in one!!! day, other cachers dip them every 200 meters for weeks or months, a Tb hotel near my hometown with 7 Tb´s in it got compleatly emptied, you name it. I want to send one or two Tb´s out myself, but oh boy. This really makes me wonder, if it´s a good idea to make the Tb´s / Gc´s a premium member only thing.
  11. 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.
  12. Hi, seit gestern habe ich auf GC.com ein Problem mit einem ziemlich hartnäckigen und nervigen Werbepopup von BMW. Ich bin PM und würde daher erwarten, sowas gar nicht erst zu bekommen. Aber jedes Mal, wenn auf der Seite diese dusselige BMW-Werbung kommt, dann ploppt mir auch ein neuer Tab vor der ganzen GC-Seite auf. Hat das noch wer von Euch? Wenn ja, wäre es schön, wenn ihr euch auch in folgendem Thread melden könntet. http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=309119&st=0 Ich fürchte nämlich, daß das ein spezifisches deutsches Problem sein könnte, da das BMW-Ad auf deutsch ist und über Google Ads zugesteuert wird. Aber wenn's in Deutschland nicht nur ein Einzelfall ist, sondern viele betrifft, machen sie vielleicht was. LG Atti
  13. I think the have the sciences backwards ... Rocket science: 50 points Geology: 100 points Environmental science: 200 points Futurology: 300 points Rocket science is a lot harder than geology or environmental science. And I don't even think futurology is a science.
  14. 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.)
  15. I mean of course if it was implemented then it could be optional what notifications you get, I guess when like yourself you have 200+ hides it would be a bit spammy
  16. It's hard to imagine how someone might find so many caches in one day or in their geocaching career, when first starting out the hobby But there's a whole lot of selective geocaching that can happen, and the more caches you find the more 'styles' of hide you can recall and some of the harder caches can become park 'n grabs. You don't find 1000 in day with forest hikes. You'd be selecting an area with loads of park 'n grabs, or powertrails with a vehicle (bike, car, etc) or as mentioned with a group. There are many strategies. So if you're ever comparing find count, always take the strategies, tools, vehicles into consideration. One person's 500 in a day may be impressive by car solo, while another person's 200 a day on foot would be an even greater accomplishment. Ultimately, try not to start 'competitive' thinking. That just brings people down and makes arguments about "right" or "wrong" ways all the more prominent. Same with statistics like number of times you've completed a full DT grid. Some people just live in areas with more variety and have it easier, so 20 'loops' is nothing, where 3 loops for someone else is extreme. Numbers have to be interpreted. It's not super interesting these days assigning value to what seem like high numbers, because we never really know the circumstances that led to those numbers on the surface. Enjoy the hobby. Find as many as you can quickly if you want, but don't be discouraged by accounts with 100,000+ finds, or crazy high stats. Push yourself if you want, but try not to compete with people across the globe (or even around the corner)
  17. I've met someone who has now logged well over 100k finds. The first time I met him was at an event celebrating his 30k milestone a long time ago. And I've known people who have gone caching with him. He finds that many by finding caches one at a time, very frequently and very quickly. He may not find caches every day (he didn't maintain a significant streak as far as I know), but he's retired and he spends a lot of time geocaching. He finds them quickly and he keeps moving. He doesn't spend a lot of time with each cache (to put it mildly). The people I've known who have gone geocaching with him have said that it's hard to keep up with him. He moves quickly between caches, he finds each cache very quickly, signs the log quickly, and is then on his way to the next cache. Numbers trails (also called power trails) are the answer to this. Here's what it looks like in practice: Before the development of numbers trails, groups would do numbers runs, finding 200, 300, even 400 caches in a 24-hour day. That took a lot more planning, finding a cache-rich area with a lot of easy park-and-grab caches, choosing your target caches, planning a route to drive from one cache to the next as efficiently as possible, and preparing to drive from one cache to the next for 24 hours straight. I know a group that found 100 puzzle caches in a day, starting at dawn and ending after dark before celebrating with dinner with one of the more prolific hiders of puzzle caches in that area. The modern numbers trail makes that easier of course. You no longer need to choose your target caches or plan your route. You do need to prepare to drive from one cache to the next for hours at a time. And yes, there are "optimizations" used on numbers trails. Goldenwattle mentioned divide-and-conquer techniques, where the group splits up, each sub-group signs the same team name (or uses a stamp with the names of everyone in the larger group), and then everyone logs all the caches found by anyone in the larger group. Yep, armchair logging by any other name... Another common one is sometimes called "three cache monte", and involves bringing spare containers with pre-signed logs, then at each location, you take the container you find and drop a container with a pre-signed log in its place. On the way to the next cache, someone signs (or stamps) the log from the container you took from the previous location. The technique is named for the card hustle where cards are moved around and no one can figure out where any of the cards are. (And never mind the "Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location" that's supposed to be part of what geocaching really is.) But numbers runs don't have to use any of these "optimizations". I recall one person who found several hundred on a numbers trail (somewhere in the range of 600-700, IIRC), driving solo on a motorcycle. There was no divide-and-conquer, there was no three cache monte, and there wasn't even any group caching where one person in the group finds the cache and everyone logs a find.
  18. So was? https://www.geocaching.com/plan/lists/BM2GNYP?sort=name&sortOrder=asc&skip=0&take=200
  19. 10 Illinois and 2 Indiana geocachers got together and created 12 Adventure Labs following the entire Lincoln Highway through Illinois. Border to border. Plus one section over the line in Indiana. These 12 Adventure Labs stretch just over 200 miles. The Lincoln Highway has hundreds of commemorative gazebos, murals and other historical monuments and artifacts along the way and is an interesting historical marvel. Anyone in the other states want to pick up where we left off? The entire length of the Lincoln Highway runs from Times Square in New York to San Francisco, a total of 3,389 miles. How cool would that be to have labs covering coast to coast? Our job was made easier by using the great map by the Lincoln Highway Association. Turn on 'Points of Interest' in the Layers Menu, and it shows hundreds and hundreds of Lincoln Highway locations. https://www.lincolnhighwayassoc.org/map/
  20. That's usually what happens in events and they publish caches during that one. In the end, you are just enjoying the hike, since when you are with 15-20 people at least, it is quite probable that you will not participate in each search. If this event is near your home, I would rather go another time and visit the caches and enjoy the complete experience, but... what should one do when those caches are 100-200 km away from your home? I suppose we shouldn't be so strict, but it depends on the person.
  21. I'm home now and just fired up the phone and app to find everything is back to normal, all caches showing including the ones that weren't showing this morning. Hmm. However, when I zoom out the 200 cache "circle" is back in the same spot, no other caches statewide are showing.
  22. I also had a problem using the app today that I've never come across before. I'm not sure it's related. I was doing a maintenance run and tried to access a cache to write an OM but it would not come up on the screen. All my nearby caches were not showing either. I thought it may have been a poor phone signal but a quick check showed signal strength was good. I found that if I zoomed out all my other caches north of where I was came into view. That seemed odd. I zoomed right out until all caches north of me were gathered together into a 200 cache "circle" which seemed to be centred around my home coords. To my knowledge I've never set any filters to do that. What's going on?
  23. Das es hierzu sogar eine Petition gibt habe ich noch nicht gewusst und bedeutet einen wirklich markanten negativen Höhepunkt. Ich betreibe einige Hobbies und so eine Situation ist mir bisher aus anderen Hobbies nicht bekannt. Die über 200 Kommentare sollten sich die Reviewer mal durchlesen, ich bin wirklich sehr überrascht wie viele sich hierzu äußern. Wenn die Veröffentlichung eines Angebots und einem darauf folgenden Menschenansammlung strafbar wäre dann hat nun jeder Filialleiter einer Aldi Süd Filiale eine Anzeige denn was heute früh vor Aldimärkten los war ist der Wahnsinn.... hundert Meter lange Schlange und nach <1h waren alle Corona-Schnelltests ausverkauft. Also ich habe noch tausende ungefundene Caches in Bayern und sicher hunderte im Umkreis von 50km. Neue Caches sind mir da gar nicht so wichtig und ich bin eh kein FTF-Jäger, bekomme als Basismember eh keine FTFs mit. Ich denke hier geht es einigen nicht in erster Linie um neue Caches sondern um die herablassende Art und Weise, das anmaßende Auftreten der Reviewer und die Bevormundung von Cachern. Über die Tatsache das es hierzu eine Petition gibt bin ich auch sehr überrascht. Jedes Problem kann gelöst werden, jeder ist austauschbar. Das hier nicht deutlich mehr Leute unterzeichnet haben liegt evtl. daran das viele davon nichts wussten.
  24. Hey there, new to the forum but not to geocaching or using GPS's...please forgive for what seems to be a general forum faux-pas in discussing,asking or otherwise talking about the horrible attributes oh the Magellan Triton 200,but I have simple needs and just want it to work when it should.I'm almost resigned to the fact that the availability of anything that will work on the unit is slim to none but possibly a member on here can put this to rest for good or offer a solution where I might obtain a working Topo map for the Triton. Thanks so much in advance!
  25. I take my time for any cache type I create (even for the one traditional and the one virtual cache I own). When I am creating a puzzle cache there's always something to do outside, a (more or less) little outdoor part with stages. The indoor part - the puzzle itself - rarely is only one level of task, it usually consists of many steps to take. I am not a very good tinkerer so building the final cache box usually doesn't take too long but creating and refine the puzzle may take about 50 working hours averaged. I would estimate that my longest creation phase was at the cache GC5RY0X (sorry, it's German) and took me about 150 hours (only the indoor part, outdoorpart adding up some hours). I remember that I was working almost each night after work and sports until 2 a. m. - that's because it was a fun one to create. I created a similar puzzle cache lately (it is betatested right now) with an even longer story but it took me less hours (getting better? :-)). But in the end there might be another 100 hours of working time. Let's see how many changes I have to do after the betatest. :-) Some people want to hide many caches. They can't affort taking their time. That's not for me. With all the time put in my own hides others would have been able to hide 200 or more caches but that's not what I want to do. I have decided that it's nice to create one effortful (for me and the finders) per year - that's enough and for me that's better than creating 20 simple ones getting many "quick found" logs. I don't get too many logs for my caches but the ones I get usually tell me that the finderst had fun! :-)
