Bull****!

Have a look at the latest find log on Cow and the "finds" in Mr Bull's profile . . .

You're not the only one with problems - there are complaints in the US forum as well. I last got a scheduled PQ on Friday and I usually get two each day. I just ran a "My Finds" query and it came immediately, so if you create a new query that might work. Added in edit: amazing - just after I posted ...

Lettuce?

One of my Aussie geocoins just lobbed in to a cache in Italy. The cache is http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=5fb73cdb-73cc-410a-8f64-8c7953d801bf Part of the multilingual find log of the cacher who placed the coin says: "Location: Super 3 years in a row we are on the skiing here...

The cache size for GC3E is given as "virtual".
Perhaps they do worldwide searches for caches which have this size specification and assume they can log them!

I was just looking at the parallel thread started by Super-T on the US forum and saw a reference to the Inka pen: http://img.geocaching.com/cache/feecd107-a4b2-402d-b0aa-17ac0fdc5956.jpg These are available on eBay for a mere $39.95 + $6.00 postage for the (ptui!) standard version. The serious geoca...

and what happens at night? But then it's easy . . well so long as it's not cloudy and you can identify the Southern Cross and pointers. Take the perpendicular bisector of the line between the pointers and the line of the long arm of the cross - where they intersect is where the south pole of the Ea...

The world record of consecutive days with a find may be a bit hard to beat! I don't know if this is the current record, but frivlas in the US appears to have found at least one cache a day since mid April 2005 - about 850 days. :shock: (One of their recent finds was the event cache Aussie Invasion I...

I think a bit of negativity is needed here :twisted: My hands are affected by arthritis, so I don't like finding a cache made out of PVC pipe - they are so damn hard for me to open (and then to close properly). I didn't mention this before as I thought it might be a lone gripe. But I just found this...

Welcome Luxy! :)
