Ok. It's geocache not geocatch. And that's what this whole forum is about- that's why it's called geocaching topics.

 

More common than you think. :) Try www.geocatching.com and see where you get redirected. In the last 2 months (that's as far back as you can see with a basic Google webmasters tool account) 1,373 people have typed Geocatching into Google. :ph34r:

I found a geocache a few days ago and logged it on line with my phone via a Android app for geocaching. :)

It was fun, and the cache was only a micro in a shopping center parking lot with a cruddy log that needed replacing. But it was fun, because I used my phone and not my GPS unit. Phone caching is new to me, so I think it is fun. I am also suprised how accurate the darn thing is compared to my Garmin GPSmap 60. One of the best things that I like about geocaching with my phone is I can post "TFTC, Logged via Andriod App for geocaching.", then I can come here to geocatch forum and blog about my find and complain that I would leave a nice note in the log book, but micros are sign only logs and don't deserve the time it would take me to blog about it on the cache page. :(

 

Blogged via my PC, just for fun. :anibad:

Just as interesting, given the very commonly used abbreviation "gc.com", see where that takes you!

 

I had never actually tried that! I'll bet they get a little extra traffic out of that. I don't remember where I saw it, but I'm sure it was some sort of DNS tools type website, and if I remember correctly, they have almost 50 domain names that point to Geocaching.com.

 

Oh, I found a cache yesterday! I might find a couple this weekend. I have a couple that could use fixing, maybe I'll do that instead.

I found a cache, then signed the log, then logged it online once. Has anybody here done that?

 

I used to do that but not anymore! My stats used to show this thing called "distinct" caches found but now it doesn't so i'm multi logging finds like crazy. I'm guessing it's an out of sight, out of mind kinda thing so my conscience isn't bugging me a bit about it. Now my find count is going through the roof and soon i'll be winning this geocaching game. :laughing:

My favorite is yourcachesucks.com

 

And I didn't find a cache today, but I logged one I found a while ago.

 

Yes, that certainly works, but If I'm not mistaken, it's "reviewer humor", and was purchased by a reviewer (and I'm going to guess Mtn-Man), and redirected to Geocaching.com.

He should re-direct it to a static page that lists common reasons why caches suck. And then people could be referred there as necessary.

I got a FTF at midnight. Apparently I'm the only one who caches instead of sleeping.

 

I think thus thread help out of all problem?

 

Nope. One would have to go to school for a long, long time to help with my problems....

I found 3geocatch today in norway!

 

No you didn't find 3 geocatch today, unless you can explain what a geocatch is.

You found 3 geocaches today. And you logged one of them (GC3324W) twice.

 

I found 3 geocaches today, but I wanted to find only 2 caches.

But one was a micro although the listing said it was a small, so I had to drive to another one to be able drop a geocoin.

I think a Geocatch is a slang for a TB prison.

I would never belong to a club that would have me as a member.

 

This club wouldn't take me at first but i bribed them with cold hard cache. Yup, it was expensive at $30 but it was worth it. Of course, i might have rethought spending that if i had known wimseyguy was a member,,, :o:ph34r:B)

You have logged "found it" more than once for the following geocaches:

And you've logged a "found it" for your own cache:
