Recommended Posts

All racers have escaped from their cocoon and if they make it through airport security, will be ready to race.

Hello Racers!!!

 

I'm keeping track of timing and scoring for CacheAddict :D

 

I have 57 out of 70 racers on the standings sheet. If you DO NOT see your racer on either the mileage or geocacher(both are the same) standings page please let me know.

 

If you see your racer(s) on the page, please check to make sure your information is correct(IE: racer name). If it is not, also let me know.

 

Good luck racers!! :D

Only one of mine has even been "picked up" from GCF! :laughing:

 

I do hope that these butterflies were handed off to only to people who fully understand their missions. :) Otherwise we will have many that never make it out of the gate... :laughing:

And I would assume that our names aren't on the tags, so pickup and movement is really a random act.

We should try and get a picture of the Migration!!

 

I'll second that emotion! I think it would be exciting to be one of the first geocachers to help racers at the starting line. Since I can't be one of them but do have a racer, I'd love to see how they start out. Even a photo of one of them with their mission instructions, guidlines, etc.

A picture of thier migration I took last year is posted on GaryM53 butterfly! The trees were black with them.

The reason is because good ole Groundspeak decided on their own not to send out "took' logs to watchlists or owners of trackables. So your mileage wont get updated until I get a 'placed' log notice. Nothing I can do about it. I don't have time to go through every racers page to check. Sorry.

 

I went ahead and put your mileage on the standings because I was on the page. It will uploaded in a few minutes.

Aaaaaaaannnd both of mine appear to have been stolen. Already! :laughing:

You know Groundspeak turned off retrieve logs right? Both your coins were picked up by local cachers. I'm sure they'll be in caches before you know it.

Why/when did they turn off retrieve logs too??

 

I want all my logs. Half the fun of following trackables is to see all their movements.

I'm getting retrieval logs within the last hour. It is the 'took' logs I'm not getting.

Big tie for first in the geocacher standings still.

Wow, Mike these are stunning pictures.

I really love the butterfly invasion.

 

I really hope that more of the butterflies will start flying like in the pictures.

Yes, 29 Butterfly's with zero movement is not a good sign. Where did they go?

 

Well, in the case of mine, they *have* moved quite a bit, but not been dropped yet, since the "visited" logs aren't generating emails and getting included in the updated standings.

 

Some spot checks show a few others in similar situations.

I hope my coin(s) is(/are) gonna make it to Cologne. Maybe I can pick them up right there.

I have two. One hasn't visited or moved. The other hasn't even been registered as picked up.

 

C'est la vie. :laughing: Maybe I will win the prize for least movement and least # of cacher pickups (0!) :D

I went through every racer and updated them. I found about 10 with mileage. All but 2 were 'visit' or 'took' logs that Groundspeak refuses to send to owners or watchlist watchers. If you don't like that go b%#&h to them and join me.

 

For some reason I didn't get 2 placed logs on Sept 25th so those racers got updated as well.

 

Again, if you don't see your racer updated just let me know here or send me a message and I'll get it updated in the next update.

 

:D:laughing::laughing:
