I believe they were published back when the option to choose sizes wasn't there.

Re: overseas PQs

Looking at your gc.com profile it looks like you are a premium member, so the process is quite simple. Head over to http://www.geocaching.com/pocket/gcquery.aspx In the 'Days to Generate' select the day you want the PQ to run (remember its western US time), select 'Run this query once then delete it...

Re: Cheap custom stamps - $4 shipped

Mine arrived today. But they cut off 2 letters from the left side, so its unusable at the moment. At $4 I think I might order a new one. Got some pictures ? Here you go http://i.imgur.com/DmnKg.jpg (The actual size is about one third of what it is in the image) For the new one ive removed the image...

It's odd that GC doesn't have something that tells you "you have already logged this cache as found on 6/10/10" It actually does, on the webpage for the cache it says: "You logged this as Found on Sunday, 10 October 2010". But there is nothing stopping you from logging it again, mainly because its ...
