UPDATE ON BOB, IE; FATTBOY.

 

I TALKED TO HIM AROUND 3;30 PM AND HE IS SORE AND TIRED AND WAS GOING TO BED.

 

SURGERY WAS SCHEDULED FOR NOON BUT THEY DIDN'T DO IT TILL 6, THEN IT LASTED TWO AND HALF HOURS. SO WE CAN WISH FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY.

 

I have been sending him prayers with love and healing intentions since reading this. We hope his recovery is kind to his body as he heals and that his spirit feels at ease through this process. We sent our get well note as well. Thank you for letting us all know so that we could have this opportunity to offer support and to send him energy :) .

Climbers rescued on Mount Hood aided by treasure hunt box

 

03:55 PM PST on Tuesday, January 15, 2008

 

Associated Press and KGW.com

 

MOUNT HOOD, Ore. - Two men who became lost on Mount Hood were able to aid rescuers after they found a geocache, a box used in a treasure hunt game, that contained their GPS location.

 

Rescuers safely guided Matthew Pitts and Justin Votos out of the snow-covered forest Tuesday morning, after the pair got lost in whiteout conditions while climbing on Mount Hood.

 

"We lost our way and ended up further west than we thought we would be," Pitts told KGW, just after reaching Timberline. The two men said they found themselves in whiteout conditions. At times, they couldn't even see their own feet and were afraid any misstep would send them tumbling over a cliff.

 

Searchers got a break in their rescue effort Tuesday morning when a call got through to one of the men's cell phones. The climbers said they had built a snow cave and spent the night inside it, according to Jim Strovink with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

 

After the cell phone call, the pair began heading down the mountain, but they couldn't give rescuers an exact location since they did not have a mountain locator device. However, the pair found a Geocache, which helped searchers zero in on them. A Geocache is a box with a known GPS location, used in a game similar to a treasure hunt that's popular with backcountry adventurers.

Good gosh, same old story ... newbies and Muggles stumble onto a hide while we go nuts trying to find them with GPS receivers.

All things considered, they were lucky to have found it...

 

I say this from the perspective of having done some winter caching in Colorado where I've arrived at GZ only to realize that the cache is under five feet of snow... :D:D

Do you still have that fever from scratching the PO too much? I've heard that a fever can release the creative juices. Any chance the Polar Bear PO helped you solve some of the Polar Bear's Insanity Caches?

Janie and I were thrilled to see one of the log-entries you made today.

 

Exercise is really good for our hearts. Are you supposed to do jumping-

My email to him about the caches that were quite a distance off the trail in the area recovering from the fire was diplomatic. In fact, the first sentence commended him for his enthusiasm. I mentioned the "guideline" for caches in MTRP about having caches close to the trial, and then mentioned what happened out in ABDSP.

 

After he responded with a very curt email, I sent an apology, stating I had not meant my email to be taken as criticism, but if it sounded that way, I was sorry.

 

I had no idea he would react in such a way, nor "call me out" when I did not intend my email to be anything other than informative.

 

Sorry everybody . . . :lol:

I remember that a geocacher got fined almost 200 bucks for getting caught off trail in MTRP a couple of years ago. A little constructive advice shouldn't have caused that kind of reaction.

Currently no such rules apply for the San Miguel/Sweetwater area and there are multiple caches off the trails in that area. I know as some of them are mine. From what I have been hearing lately that could be changing soon. No caches or closer to trail caches. Since this is a National Wildlife Refuge land then I think the rules will be changed so that there is minimal impact on Wildlife. I love seeing the wildlife out in the area but don't mind seeing the occassional fake cactus, ammo can in the rocks or a small containter hanging in a bush.

:lol: Funny..we were talking about just that today in MTRP with Greasepot from Colorado..couldn't remember who paid the fine though. We saw lots of people off trail today...Rangers could have made a killing. MTRP was hopping....so many people and kids and dogs. The trailhead parking lot was overflowing. Sure is a popular place and with the rains all the little waterfalls are beautiful.

Hmm...at the risk of sounding dull, I must confess it never would have crossed my mind that there would be any problem hiking across the burned areas. I've already taken advantage of the easy off-path hiking after this fire, and I always did with previous fires in the area. Actually, it's really quite a lot of fun. If you know your way around the BLM and other public land, you can travel for miles without use of a trail. :huh: Damage? I figured, the whole place is already toasted, so how much damage could I do? There aren't any plants to trample. I really can't see the effects of my past actions.

 

Perhaps I need to rethink my next cache idea. I probably could have caused some grief.

As I recall Barbados Sam got caught off trail right beside Fa. Junipero Serra Trail. I do believe he was over a guard-rail that had a clearly posted keep-out sign. That road is certainly the most likely spot to get busted because the rangers often drive through from the visitor center to the dam parking lot and to the campground. All in all there has been an incredible amount of MTRP Geocaching done with little ranger/USMC intervention. In truth there are very few hides that actually push the envelope as far as being placed off-trail but I ain't about t' name names.

 

One thing for sure, the many MTRP Geocaches have taken lots of hikers into seldom-visited areas. I recall an encounter with a trail-maintenance crew along the fifty-two and a woman ranger there said "Wow! I've never seen anybody hiking in the section of the park."

 

I was prepared to blame my presence on Cegrube if things turned ugly with that Ranger but she and I enjoyed some pleasant conversation. I just knew that she wanted to tell me that I was manly and handsome but her oath of office constrained our conversation. She was a looker, you know, except for the buck teeth and bangs.

Speaking of intervention, I dropped eight of the nine caches that were confiscated by the Marines. They're sprinkled from Oak Canyon to Spring Canyon to the Fortunas. :huh: The one cache I didn't take was an ammo can as I had no space for it in my pack! But, I have a nice spot in mind for it. Hope to submit them all for publication tonight. :lol:

Hope to submit them all for publication tonight. :huh:

Good luck with that. The site has been hosed all afternoon/evening...

 

It sure has been... I've been trying to submit an cache for approval that I hid here in Nevada and I finally gave up. :lol:

Got 8/9 submitted; just can't get that last one in...

All in all there has been an incredible amount of MTRP Geocaching done with little ranger/USMC intervention.

Speaking of intervention, I dropped eight of the nine caches that were confiscated by the Marines. They're sprinkled from Oak Canyon to Spring Canyon to the Fortunas. :lol: The one cache I didn't take was an ammo can as I had no space for it in my pack! But, I have a nice spot in mind for it. Hope to submit them all for publication tonight. :huh:

Whoohooo! I'm looking forward to hiking those trails again soon! :huh:

 

Probably won't be tomorrow though. Ms. LLOT seems to be under the weather... :huh:

Is it me are is Geocaching.com slow. I can't get into my account. :blink::cool::blink:

The website is hosed. No new caches being published, and everything is slow or completely inaccessible...

 

They're looking for the pellets to feed the hamsters right now...

 

 

On the bright side at least the forums are working fine. 0002022F.gif

 

 

I thought the PQ's came from a different server, but I haven't received any today.

The site came back up a few minutes ago and is working great. ..now if that darn rain would go away so I don't have to watch a football game that I couldn't care less about.
