Post a recent picture of yourself geocaching.

Recommended Posts

Taken tonight after hiking out to grab a number of caches and returning to my car a little later than expected. Part of the reason I grew a beard this year for the first time was to be able to get a ridiculous pic like this :D

Above pictures are from Red Canyon GC1PV8W. Pretty nice Pelican Case and there wasn't any junk inside, it was all pretty nice stuff and not just a bunch of junk toys. It was over the Easter weekend while we stayed in the near by cabins, still need to log the find on here.

They're not particularly recent, but my profile has some pix of me at a few memorable DNFTFs (did-not-FTFs).

 

I won't post them here because they may scare children...

I would if I could figure out how .

When you have a picture uploaded to a cache log, go to the cache log and click on the picture. It should open up a window with just the picture in it, with an url that ends with jpg. Copy that url. Come here, and click on the link above the text of a new post, that shows "insert image". Paste the picture url into that link and it will be in your reply. I usually insert large/ after the the word log/ in the url so that the picture comes out to a nice size in the forums.

Thank you!!!! You are the first person to explain how to very easily add a picture. I've always had a hard time doing that, and the explanations were very complicated. Followed yours, and "Bob's you uncle"!!!!!! Great--thanks again.

I'm the one in the middle. We hosted an event for a TV report about Geocaching (the picture is taken from TV)

The geocache is only a few meters away:

Crosses and mountaintops... Here we go:

Another DNFTF, this time west of Córdoba, Argentina. (Note to self: always profile the hider before making a major effort for a cache...)

 

Those specks are flying ants, which were attracted to the cross for some reason.

Awesome additions. Thanks for the adds. I hope to add a newer image myself....if I ever get the time to get back out. Super busy these past months.

Relaxing for lunch near the cache location after a recent FTF at a local sub-alpine lake.

A rural bus stop in Northern Germany. There's a micro cache hidden in there. Armchair caching at its best, I could literally reach and log the cache while sitting on the armchair B):lol: .

Hmm...maybe she's on to something.

 

This site contains a large block of info about each of us: travels, ideas, preferences, etc.

 

No problem - we're anonymous behind our pseudonyms. Except that in the other thread we tell why that fits or doesn't.

 

Now it contains our photo.

 

We provide our location - which may not be exact. Except that our smartphone tells our exact location when we end our trip back at home ( unless we turn off the location).

 

Can you imagine what this wealth of info will sell for to eager marketers?!

 

I'm wrong? Do the math first.

 

Edit: Oh, & let's not forget the credit card used for membership fees. That ties everything together to a specific, no-longer-anonymous individual.

 

The only question I have is whether the information is already being sold. By the way, did you ever notice the high-ranked insiders don't seem to discuss their entire lives?

 

Hmmm...points to ponder. :huh:

 

Your photo is probably the least valuable piece of personal information on this site. Marketers have no use for knowing what you look like, if they already know your age, gender, hobbies, etc. Might as well post the pics.

Youngest child and me after finding the Houston Texas Sports Fanatic cache. Total coincidence that I happened to be wearing my Texans shirt that day. A lot of my pictures end up being in or near my car, because I love the idea of caches hidden in busy places with people walking past them all the time!

May as well.

 

The CO asked people to take pictures of themselves enjoying the swag in their new years cache. I was FTF at 7:15am in freezing temperatures. In my other hand was an air horn.

Well, if it HAS to be recent... here's a shot reppin' my beloved Seahawks for BlueFriday yesterday.

But I much prefer family shots... the most recent of which, sadly, was three years ago (Daddy isn't a big fan of pictures and isn't terribly patient with me setting up the timer for group shots)

D1/T5 - GC57DRQ - The funny thing is, that you don't need to bring your own ladder, there are about 4 ladders near the geocache. :laughing:
