Great wisdom from a master TB finder:


"It's a web of life, in my opinion, and absolutely any movement is the next step in reaching it's goal. That weird side trip to Florida, may be the next step to Canada. And a side trip may have saved it from going MIA by pilferage in Pennsylvania."

Here's a few that I don't think have appeared yet.... enjoy:


We're not lost. We're locationally challenged.

- John M. Ford


To become aware of the possiblity of the search is to be onto something.

- Walker Percy


He who would travel happily must travel light.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944)


The true traveler is he who goes on foot, and even then, he sits down a lot of the time.

- Colette (1873 - 1954), Paris From My Window, 1944


The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It's the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and science. Whoever does not know it can no longer wander, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.

- Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do then by the ones you did. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

what happened that day on the hillside

you and I shivered from grief not from weather...

what happened that day, so long ago?

you laughed at my only suggestion

it's hard to keep finding answers to questions

-ronnie martin


~note on lyric origin:

ronnie IS a synthisizer/vocals only group (joy electric) that is suprisingly loud & darned awesome live. this is part of a song from his side project (he's guitar/bass/vocals, another guy does the drums), shepherd: commiting to tape . I just bought it from ronnie, personaly, last night, after his show. I also saw ronnie's brothers' (jason martin) group, starflyer 59, last night. they are one of the only groups that I hold higher than joy electric. here's part of one of their songs

We shall go on to the end

We shall find in France, we shall find on the seas and oceans

We shall find with growing confidence and growing strength in the air

We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be

We shall find on the beaches,

We shall find on the landing grounds

We shall find in the fields, and in the streets

We shall find in the hills

We shall never surrender


- Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

(slightly amended by yours truly)

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,

By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,

"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no craven,

Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore --

Tell me where the cache is on the Night's Plutonian shore!"

Quoth the Raven "Nevermore."





Trying to find waypoint you are, young Cachewalker? Do or not do - there is no try!

For the caches you ran out of time for, or DNF'd:


"Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back."


(The Road Not Taken--Robert Frost)


For the "Will caching survive?" crowd:


Now we are engaged in a great forum debate, questioning whether that hobby, or any hobby so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.


(My apologies, President Lincoln! :) )
