Indiana Cachers: Who and where are you?

Recommended Posts

I have a frog and a camel pullin my buggy.

EV, isn't that "Froggy" from Andy Devine's ( I think this was after he was Jingles on the Wild Bill Hickock show) old TV show, "Our Gang", where he used to say "Plunk your magic Twanger, Froggy" and Froggy would appear in a puff of smoke and say "Hiya, kids, Hiya, Hiya!" and Midnight the cat would fly around in her bi-plane dreating havoc, and the show was sponsored by Buster Brown Shoes, and Buster Brown and her dog Tige would always say something like "We're friends, and friends stick together--with Scotch Brand Cellophane Tape" and they would show short films of the Lil Rascals from the thirties, Is it that froggy, huh, huh? I know you're way to young to have even read about all this in your history books...yes, they had TV in the 50's, well maybe the Amish didn't... I don't recognize that camel, tho, altho Patrick says he does.

I hate to be a party pooper but could we please make this topic less like abject silliness or the off-topic forums and more like a topic with actual useful content? As far as I can tell the topic was started so that people could introduce themselves and to tell others where they are physically located in this great state of ours.

 

Thank you,

I posted to this topic about a year ago but there is no harm in repeating.

 

From Lafayette/Purdue area. Been caching with a GPS since Mar '03. Before that I found one cache from the description alone; something I still like doing if I know the cache hiding area well. Have hidden a handful of caches and have co-sponsored one event last Feb' 04. I prefer caches that take me on a hike -- the 1-2 star difficulty and 3-4 star terrain type -- although a good puzzle is also fun at times. Really dislike wet caches in non-interesting locations. Use to go out caching with my friend SKeillan but then he got married to a non-cacher. :rolleyes: I sometimes drag my wife along caching. She usually spots the caches faster than I do! However she often does not like the hikes. If we can ride our bicycles then she is game.

 

Recently I have been talking with Joypa. His wife is also a reluctant but willing-to-support-her-spouse type of cacher. The Lafayette area is fairly low density in caches and thus Joypa and I will probably go out together later this year down to Indy or other points an hour so away in order to pick up some new caches. Joypa and I are also sponsoring a small geo-picnic Oct. 24th. We would like to meet other nearby cachers. Personally I think it would be interesting to meet Torry ... a person who likes pigs has to be neat. :rolleyes:

Chris Schenkel. I knew that! I hadn't thought of that in years, though. Does he still do sports? I haven't seen him around for awhile...

 

Thanks, Star. It was a great birthday! I would have loved to have met you, and I also would love to go this weekend, but Jenna has a golf match at North Manchester on Saturday, and at Depauw on Sunday and Monday. We'll be on the road! (And working some caches in, too!!)

You are showing emotion!

You are upsetting the guy with the initials.

Emotions are illogical.

Jenna has a golf match at North Manchester on Saturday,

Pippa, on your way to N. Manchester, dip down to Roanoke (East of Krakatoa, I mean Bippus) and grab my new Graveyard cache! Maybe you will be FTF. I was going to plant another one there too but it was too dark to take pictures. Do a new cache search before you leave. Lead Dog Jr. (Wheel Dog) graduated from MHS and studied one term at the college, but left... Patrick is grumbling and acting weird and muttering something under his breath about wanting to be adopted by Star and Wulf, like Ev... :D

Actually, we go through Roanoke on our way to N. Manchester. We take 469 around the south side, then take Lafayette Center Road into Roanoke. We've gone 'cross-country' from there before, but usually we go up 24 and catch 114. I think I'll try and find your cache! But I'm not counting on being FTF. I've only ever been that one time, and that was my birthday cache a couple of weeks ago, and even then, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to be FTF, but I got lucky.

Well, if a certain SOMEONE had been a little more discerning and had listened to the hider better, THEY might have been FTF (for REAL). :D

My name is lead dog

I live in a soybean field.

Patrick and I drove up and down the 4-lane today.

I threw magnetic key hiders out the window at guard rails

If they stuck, Patrick noted the coordinates.

So far we're about 2 for 9, so we've got two more caches to report.

Pip, Lead dog is downstairs decanting a bottle of cheap wine to drink during the debates, so I'm gonna let you in on a secret, you need to get a real FTF, not one on your birthday cache, and Lead Dog hid one today about a half mile south of where you drive thru Roanoke. he hasn't reported it yet, cause we just got back. Do you have your decoder ring? I'm gonna send you a secret message with secret info so you can find the cache, cause he le=ft me in the car while he was up on the hill, so I barked my brains out, with the hi pitched yip yip yipping cause I knw that irritates him, here he comes, bye!

Nobody is going to get an unfair advantage. That little dog may be able to type with his nose on a keyboard, but he can't write with a pencil, and that's where all the coordinates are in my notebook. He don't know nuthin'! However there will be at least 4 new caches in the immediate area ready to go by Saturday. Sorry, Pippa, I have to reel the ankle-biter in. :)

*whispers* .... Patrick ... We would be willing to adopt you but you do realize that you would have to share the home with 2 beautiful girl dogs ? The head dog here is a lovely Golden Retreiver and her compainon is a lovely but somewhat funny looking Weiner Dog . ... and two cats .. one is just a kitten.

 

One more thing , do you really think that LeadDog could manage well without you ... I think he need you really.

You guys seem to think Patrick is some cute litte lap dog. If only you knew his true nature. He has you all fooled. He's a big grump. Dragging his sorry butt out of bed in the morning is like trying to baptise a cat. He sleeps all the time, even in the car.

He growls at me every time I try to touch him. The only time he's friendly to me is when I'm eating chips or drinking beer, then he's my best buddy. He was abandoned by at least two former owners and I think that's warped him a bit. He won't let me out of his sight, and wants body contact at all times, but don't pet him! Actually, now that I think about it, he's not all that bad. You can't have him, Ev! Got four new Roanoke area caches in the queue, now...

Well What EV means is she calls her dog a chi wow wa . Looks more like a really Fat Rat to me :lol: I think Patrick would agree. She lives with Ev's biological mom though .

OK, we've introduced ourselves, we know how far from Muncie we all are, and we know who knows where Bippus is, May I suggest another tack? How about explaining what our Forum Avatars and/or Screen Names are all about. I know Patrick is interested in knowing about the Malamute in Team Tigger's avatar... I'll start:

 

A SixDogTeam is six sled dogs(two lead dogs, two team dogs, two wheel dogs) in tandem harness pulling a dogsled, driven by a musher, over ice and snow, one of our hobbies...

 

This Avatar image is of Lead Dog in his 1830's Voyageur get-up with

Nikita Sergeovich _____, a Malmute-Husky mix from the Huntington Shelter.

Nick was our first full-blooded arctic breed, and altho you can't really see it in the photo he is wearing an antique Canadian c.1900 Gold Rush era dogsled harness--(October is Humane Society of the U.S. "Adopt a Shelter Dog" Month.)

 

Next Screen Name and Avatar?

Our Team name is Team Tigger International ... because we love all things Tigger

Star is obsessed by Tigger.

 

The Avatar was made from a picture Wulf found because it kinda represents us and our Screen names of Star and Wulf .. ( our "online" names) . Star loves all the animals she encounters see . We have used the names Star and Wulf for many years.

We;;, it's a good thing nobody in K-Ville tried to flag down the big white "Acorn" truck. ... I wasn't in it! My supervisor took the route and sent me to Warsaw and some central Indiana stops. i was worried all day about someone stopping his truck and telling stories about all the caching I do. ... If the boss only knew....

Well, I'm glad the thread I started is being well used. Glad to see all us Hoosiers are out there hitting it hard. Also seems ithis is a good hangout for some good friends to chat it up. And that's fine with me. So did anyone get any real good caches over the summer? RedNeck Tracking INC. Is heading down to Park County again this weekend for the covered Bridge Festival. I know after last year I said I wouldn't go down the first weekend again, but I can't help it. We just have to go out and geocache and camp. Besides the way the weather has been acting this year I'm not sure how warm it's going to stay. But on this trip it's going to be Squirrel, Old Lady and the newest addition Squaw. Squaw is my girlfriend who I had to drag out to the woods on our first date to go geocaching and she fell in love with it. So this is going to be a good trip. Hopeing to find alot of the new caches that were put out this year down there. Maybe I'll see some fellow cachers while we are down there? Good seeing everyone on here. Take it easy and Keep fresh batteries in your GPS.
