Indiana Cachers Hello !

Recommended Posts

We reached our goal today here in Austin Texas by reaching our 300th cache. We found 21 caches in 3 days of "light " hunting between family activities.

 

Not having much time to cache this year, we were happy to reach 300 caches. One could hit 100/day down here easily if you tried. Caches are everywhere.

 

I hope our next 300 come much faster than the first. I just work too much.

 

We are heading back to Indiana tomorrow morning. I will try to bring more warm weather back with me.

At Thanksgiving I snagged my father's Etrex and gave it a test run. Afterall he had it tucked away in a closet. I found one very quickly here in K'ville, and then took it along to our family xmas celebration on the western edge of the state. Along with my neices, we found 3 more. Now I'm officially hooked. I just have one question right now. I'm noticing several letter combos when people post their logs. Being more than out of practice on my tech speak, could anyone provide me with a cipher to help decode what people are saying? Thanks and it's much appreciated. I've got to go now and head out for 12 caches I've plotted here in town.

Adventure_Dad,

 

Not knowing the exact letter combos, I'm assUming here, but...

 

TNLN = Took Nothing - Left Nothing

SL = Signed Log

TFTC = Thanks For The Cache

TFTH = Thanks For The Hide, Hunt etc.

 

BTW, Welcome to hobby-sport-obsession.

 

Cache On!

Those would be the gist of the abbreviations I'm seeing. Thanks.

 

Also, had a brain anerism trying to figure out a puzzle cache tonight. Used up an hour of daylight to try to figure out the first clue left... I gave up and went to another cache about 300 yards away. I took a photo of the clue to try to decipher at home...

Hi everyone! I'm Shockwave and I'm new to geocaching. My wife just got me a GPS for Yule and I just found my 1st cache yesterday.

 

It's an interesting game/sport/hobby and I look forward to being involved in it more.

Welcome to the obsession/punishment/fantasy. Your first task should be finding a local support group you are comfortable with. We like Cachers Anonymous in Cedar Creek, ourselves. Good Luck.

Thanks for the welcome SixDog and Cpt.

 

Does anyone know if there is an Indiana geocaching podcast? I've been listening to Homer's Pack which is good, but he's in CO. I'd like to hear from someone closer to home.

Did a search. It doesn't look like there are any set in IN, but there are a couple of podcasts out there set in the Midwest. Some episodes are in IN. Cacheamaniacs looks like one of the better shows.

 

Have fun!

Just wanted to let all of our Indiana caching buddies know that we are having an event in Coldwater for Ali Kats 3rd Birthday! It would be great to see many of you. We are working to put in between 10-20 new caches plus the old ones that are already in place so if you have never been to the area you could make a day of it. Here is the link to the cache page Ali Kat B-day Bash.

 

Hope to see you there!

Justin

Any other Indiana Geocachers making the trek down to Tennessee for Geowoodstock in May? I plan on heading down after work on Friday and most likely coming back late Sunday. This is a great event to get to know other cachers from around the country as well as the world.

We've got a room in Shelbyville for Friday and Saturday night. Not sure when we'll be headed down yet--depends on whether Neos1 can get the day off, or at least off early. I am taking the day off Friday.

Here's what sucks. I got a call last night and the reservations I made were canceled. The hotel chain is closing the hotel in the area because of the economy. I was going to take a week off and already had 3 days reserved in the area to do some caching.

Hey, Shockwave! Your first cache is in the news!

 

 

Link didn't take me to a page about geocaching, Torry.

 

Sure it did... you just have to read between the lines.

Hello from Angola!!! Been here for a few months now and just saying hi. Can't wait for the snow to melt.

 

The snow will never melt. :(

 

It only melts where Patrick has been at.

A time and place will be set for this year's BAGO BASH at the next Executive Board Meeting this month at Hooters. Angie has already sent her regrets via her European lawyers--guess she's still pissed she lost in court on that suit she had against us for the "Closest to Brad in the Pit" contest last year. That girl just has no sense of humour.... Ron's office returned our call with a tentaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaative Will Attend for him and Clint.

Thanks Torry. That's niffty. The link doesn't take you to a geocaching story. I does take you to the website for where I found my first cache.
