I voted 10 but only because there was no option for unlimited. Some of my greatest caching experiences have been on multis with more than 7 waypoints (Pilatus and Dopey spring to mind). I believe any number of waypoints could be justified, but generally speaking I think 3 or 4 is sufficient in most ...

The TB is going on a trip to the Olympic stadium at Homebush first. Then I'll pass it on to someone for a visit to the cricket.

Sounds like a good plan. I'm in Sydney but getting it to Melbourne shouldn't be too hard.

Any rabid cricket fans here?

I've just picked up a TB in the US and brought it back to our shores. Its stated goal is to visit as many major sporting stadiums as possible. I was wondering if anyone who was planning on attending a few cricket matches this summer might like to take the bug on a trip. I know it would please the ow...

Andrew, I think you will find that those who are proposing, daring and double-daring are those who actually fought hardest for the Tsunami-donation cache back in December/January, hence the tone of cynicism. The basic point of this thread is that (rightly or wrongly) gc.com have created a situation ...

OK, here's the flaw in biometrics as I see it. People will always find ways to fake ID, even ID based on biometric data (see the movie Gattaca for an interesting take on this theme). The problem is that as soon as someone "steals" your ID (or finds a way to fake it) your ID is useless. If your ID is...

The whole issue of "trespassing" is quite loosely defined in most states. A fence does not necessarily indicate the limits of a property. Technically you can be outside a fence but still trespasssing. However, if a conscientious security guard sees you acting suspiciously in the vicinity of a proper...

With Q24 there is also the problem of which type of rat we are referring to. There are many different species of rat with vastly varying water needs.

Looks great! I've been obsessing over Google Earth for the past few days and I was hoping someone would do something like this. But the caches that show up seem to be an odd mix of current and archived caches, with many active caches missing. Is it just a matter of your data being incomplete and/or ...

Oh mighty Lord Nibbler, Forget the course. Just go out there and do it. If you make a major mistake (fairly unlikely if you keep the cache simple) you can always correct the co-ords afterwards. No big deal. Too many people get nervous when planning their first cache. Best way to learn is to do it. Y...
