Re: New cache type idea

I think I get where you are heading with this. I suppose the logging requirements could be a photo of the action eg the book and the street library, the freshly planted tree, you with the bag of rubbish. Could the publishing/finding guidelines be somewhat similar moveables.... ie you can move your o...

Re: dragonZone Research Tasks

I gather Research Tasks are different for each person?

The tasks for petan are different to those allocated to SambooBear. Yet both are listed as being in the same state and in the same clan.

Re: New cache type idea

Ok discussing, how would this be different to making it a locationless challenge? Using the street library as an example, could I put a book in any street library or would it be a specific street library? How would you make it 'justifyable''? I mean for most cache types you need to sign a logbook, o...

Re: Beacon and Podcache dZ Bonus

I know someone will chip me for this but 10 days is really not a lot of time to publish a podcast or beacon cache. Yeah I suppose some could and will but if you want something that has a bit more quality that just being thrown together, then we are going to need more time, perhaps something like the...

Re: Aurasma / HP Reveal use with Geocaching?

Geocaching.com included Aurasma with their Augmented Reality trial, but its not a separate cache type just a variation of the Puzzle/Unknown type AND is still under 'trial'. At the end of the trial, which has now been extended, AR caches will either be grandfathered or deleted. This was a factor whe...

Re: Journey or Destination

Possibly a silly question... will there be 'bonuses' at specific times in the game period. My question is more along the line of …. there are only a limited number of GCA caches in this area, could I run into problems in the game period if I were to clear out all of those in a short period of time, ...

Re: 2018/2019 Summer Game

Time is getting close for the start of the Journey or Destination game. I have a couple of questions: 1. From reading rules, if you hide a cache during the games it will only benefit you as the rules state on finding a cache during game it has to have been published prior to 1.12.18? 2. Should we b...

Re: Spring Caching Carnival 2018

an enjoyable way to get out and about in the spring weather chasing stampeding dinosaurs. Obviously southern dinosaurs are not as 'chilled' as those in the north. Brisbane had its own dinosaur herd where the terrible lizards gently traversed parks and fields in the Windsor district. Every dinosaur ...

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

Second stegosaur now in position admiring the view of the Tweed Bar. Shop order hasn't arrived yet (bl**dy Aus Post) so had to 'steal' the dinosaur I bought to replace the dinosaur I nicked from the work office toy box. If the rumours of the Coolangatta dino are true, might have to make sure I get t...

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

There is a stegosaurus eagerly waiting for the 1st of September at the back of Palm Beach. Is that far enough south? I hadn't planned on hiding anything further south because I thought the distance might have been limiting to currently known GCA participants. But if there is a small contingent of d...

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

My local Reject Shop has $2 dinosaurs.

Although my 'catchup' dinosaur is on order from the GCA shop.

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

Hoping to find a few in Gold Coast or Northern NSW. I think there's a few of us jurassic geocachers hiding dinosaurs in the area. There is a stegosaurus eagerly waiting for the 1st of September at the back of Palm Beach. Is that far enough south? I hadn't planned on hiding anything further south be...

Re: Report Site Issues Here

Editing my moveable cache page and for some reason its changed itself to being a trig with the size of other and I can't seem to change it. I've logged out and back in, I also changed browsers but its stuck on Trig. Can it be fixed or should I just abandon that number and start anew? The GA code is ...

Re: Locationless Caches

As essentially "the only GCA geocacher in the village" locationless are fun when we have games. I enjoy getting the list and working out where to find them. But having said that I rarely do them in non-games period. Unless it was a locationless which had previously caught my attention and that I stu...
