ok, now I need to add a thanks for the picture!

 

It made JAPTKD's brother and sister (sis especially) nice and jealous... ;) Of course, they've both been caching for more than a year, and are at about 100 caches each (give or take). On Christmas day, we'll have been caching for 6 months, hmmm, maybe new goal should be 250 by Christmas??

IF you think you are having a BAD DAY.....Read This....I about choked on my morning coffee :);)

 

Let's just say it involves Prairiepartners, Cutter Mike, Peacecamp1, and a TOW ROPE!

 

<_<:) :) :) :)

 

Location: Bloomington, Indiana, United States

cutter mike found Lost Railroad (Traditional Cache) at 12/20/2005

 

Log Date: 12/20/2005

O.K., here is how it happened. First off, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS CACHE THIS TIME OF YEAR. So, I took a buddy of mine caching for the first time and we go down the hill to get this cache. When we try to go back up the hill my car will not cooperate on the ice. I get stuck in a rut on the side of the hill. I then manage to get myself unstuck. I turn around and think this road will lead to SR 37. WRONG. It dead ends at 37. I do not find this out until I am stuck with only two wheels on the ground cause I managed to drive my vehicle into a crater. Oh, about 2-3 hours later cache owner, Prairiepartners, comes to rescue me, only after peacecamp has come to pick me up and take me someplace warm. We meet PP down there and he tows me out and then we get trying to go back up the same hill and he gets stuck, however, he managed to make it up the hill in no time. It is another story for me however, cause I get stuck yet again on the hill. After about a half hour, I reverse down the hill gain some momentum and make it nearly to the top. From there PP was able to tow me out, seeing that I made it up far enough where his 30 ft tow rope would not place him on ice. There's the story, oh yeah I found the cache! Do not attempt this cache this time of year. I have requested PP change this to a 5/5 considering it required special equipment, however he just laughed in my face. Thanks Jim (PP) and Jon (peacecamp1) you guys are great friends~!

Yea, it's always fun to rescue cachers at 11:00pm. I would suggest anyone going to that cache to use a 4 wheel drive truck only. Told him, hey let's not make this a habit..LOL..

Jim, what do you mean cachers? It was one cacher you rescued. I was there to watch. :laughing: I'm crazy but not crazy enough to drive down there. LOL Anyway it makes a great story! :laughing:

I got stuck in the summer on a dead end gravel road once. I was driving my Ranger and the hill I was trying to climb had a fresh coat of gravel. After 3 unsuccessfull tries Indy Diver in his 4 wheel drive truck had to push my Ford up the hill. If not for him I would still be there. Thanks Gary.

The first Indigo TrailMix will be Sat Jan. 7 at Morgan-Monroe State Forestry. We will be doing the Rock Shelter Trail and it's 8 caches. These were placed by the Bean Blossom Gang and they are all great hides. Check out GCQZTX for the parking cords.

GCQZTX keeps putting me on The Isle of Man. I'm sure thats not in Indiana! :lol:

I was originally thinking the Isle of Man but I thought it should be a tad bit closer. Try GCQZTX again. That is the correct cache. If you can't find a ride to the Trailmix let me know. I could meet you in Mitchell and tote you the rest of the way up Hwy 37.

happens to us Ohioans, too....

 

Now...only one minor problem. Remember the spill I took? Well apparently SOME WHERE (and I suspect it was near there) One key, and one key only, came off my keychain. you guessed it...my car key. THE ONLY key in existence for my car. Needless to say...after help from a woman whose name I still do not know, Keith and Mary Jo (of Keith and Company), one very disbelieving police officer, and my husband (gunslinger)...we finally got home about 11 p.m. SANS key (after getting Gold Star for the heathens). So...if anyone finds a Ford Key out there, possibly attached to a glow in the dark compass...the compass can be yours, and although the key will no longer start my car...I'd appreciate know ing if it gets found. I have torn up my body very badly trying to retrieve/find it to no avail.

I found the area on the map--GCQZTC is correct, I guess there is just more than one! Thanks for offering a ride, thats really nice of you-- I'll have to get with my buddy, Hounddogg to see if he will go--if not I might try to get you to pick me up at Poor Boy's :lol: I have gas money!!!!! :lol:

What a great Christmas. Did everyone else enjoy their holiday?

 

Deermark

well, we spent the holidays with JAPTKD's family. let's see, presents included garmin's for jaspop and thingfinders (their old GPSr was from 2000, so it didn't have ANY bells and whistles!), lots of ammo cans and other caching stuff all around. somehow everyone thought alike, so in the rain and snow, you got to see all of us out in the yard with GPSr's in hand, since all that was wrapped were coords, and everyone had hidden at least one present for someone else in an ammo can in the yard that they had to find if they wanted the gift. [B)] nah - we're not addicted or anything... [B)]

 

we didn't make the goal of 250 by Christmas, but 220 in our first 6 months of caching is not that bad. our searching for new caches was interrupted by helping the rest hide caches around home, so it was still a productive caching time. [B)] (and, we did find time to do at least a little non-caching stuff with the family too).

 

Did you have a good holidays Deermark?

Yes. Christmas was wonderful. Spent a lot of time with family and that is usually a good thing. Yesterday JPlus14 and I did a lot of caching. I left the house at 6:00am and returned home at 10:00pm. 16 hours, over 250 miles and 44 caches. A mixture of micros and regulars. We covered about 1/2 of Southern Indiana. I just love to travel so any chance I get to drive to caches is a good day.

 

Geo-911 was in action at GCNYCX. The cache lid was in the hiding spot along with all the swag and the ruined log book but the container itself was gone. JPlus14 replace the missing container with a decon box. Thanks Wayne.

Yep, yep, yep. I must have been a good girl this year!

 

I told you that I got N1 a GPSMAP 60CS and had begged El Diablo to make him a hiking stick --It got here just in time for the holiday... I expect that he will use the stick for events and such to keep it pretty, and save the trekking poles we got from Indy for the trail.

 

What I didn't know was that he got me the GPSMAP 76CS. We got each other the City Navigator, so we took one back and got the Topo, too. Now I can find the creeks better.

 

N1 is sending the first GPS he had to his sister, who lives in Chicago. He would have donated it to my classroom (I am still trying to get a class set!), but she really needs one of her own. We took her caching with us the last time we were there and she loved it.

In JAPTKD's words

 

"green eyed monster reared it's ugly head"

 

:o:):o:o:):o:o

 

However, on a positive note, thingfinders found their 100th find while we were all there (of course, he was the first one in the family to start caching, and green_eyed_lady (who was VERY green eyed over the 200th find) is at about 125, so he's lagging a bit, but 100 is still great). and, he got his 100th on JASPOP's cache (aka dad for the three of them).

:rolleyes: WARNING!!! Just received an email from a New Albany area cacher. He wanted me to know that one of his friends saw him find a cache in Community Park. Apparently this so called friend's new goal is the find all the caches in the park and steal from them! What a friend he must be!

:rolleyes: UPDATE ON THREAT FROM THIEF! I questioned the cacher who sent me the information. The supposed thief is thirteen and doesn't have a gps or computer. Really doesn't sound like much of a threat! From experience, some of us cachers even have trouble once in a while and we have a gps! The only way he will find a cache is by lurking around when someone is looking for a cache!

Indy Diver CoinFound this interesting item on Ebay and thought you'd all like to take a look.

Well Ed and Trixie, it took me nearly a year but I finally did it. I will be talking about this spot for a long time. I think my mouth literally dropped open in awe of God's work when I reached the spine. What a perfect place to reflect on life's events since this cache was originally placed, and be thankful for peaceful beauty like this.

The cache was in perfect shape, and well concealed. My GPS was a smidge goofy, but after it caught it's breath, it led me right to the target. I took a really cool geocaching coin that Indy Diver donated, and left a Clinton/Gore '92 campaign button, a 200 lira coin, and some first aid supplies.

A million thanks for leading me to this area.

Cisu

 

PS: Be looking for a new cache to be placed soon, GOT FIRED - NEED CACHE

To whom this may concern

We stopped some people looking all around in our side parking lot, they were even looking at and touching our gas lines.

They gave us this website and web sheet with our property being used for this game.

This property may not be used for this purpose and violators can be prosecuted.

THIS CAN BE A SERIOUS SECURITY CONCERN.

This information has been forwarded to the proper authorities.

Please do not use Walmart property for this game.

A copy of this letter has been sent to geocaching administrators.

thanks for your cooperation.

FBTF - Foiled By The Fuzz! Shortly after arrival, the local Law Enforcement, lights flashing, stopped by, not to wish us a Merry Christmas, but to "strongly suggest" we end our search. Apparently, even though Walmart is closed for Christmas, their security cameras still have to work. I was told this area is for vendors and employees, not the general public. I don't think I'll be back since I like to live within the limits of the law. Thanks anyway and Merry Christmas.

The Witch

 

I'm assuming this one was close to the building because of the Gas Line reference. I just hope they don't cause the rules to change and exclude the main parking areas. If so, that would affect a few well lit caches that I know of!
