Re: When is a cache "buried"

Let's report anything and everything we don't like about a cache to get it archived. That should help rid the game of all those annoying bridge caches, caches in highly populated areas, caches that are buried, caches in restricted areas, caches in parks and forests, caches on private land (like car...

Re: When is a cache "buried"

Of course this also raises for me other caches like GCWKJC in Canterbury which i adopted recently. Technically it's not 'buried' as you don't need to dig anything to find it, but quite clearly it would've needed a 'pointy object' to create a hole for the hide structure to go in. I've seen a few othe...

Re: You know you're a Geocacher when............................

...when an article entitled 'How to Install Geopavers' appears on your igoogle home page this morning, creating great excitement.... only leading to great disappointment when you find out its some boring landscaping thingy. Damn geo prefix.... shouldn't be allowed to be used for anything other than ...

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

I'm SOOOO tempted by this one, but hardly inconspicuous.... or durable!

You could at least store a lot inside it as a cache, even if it was just hot air :shock:

Re: Thanks for the log

As a frequent visitor to Happy Chappies other visited forum as well (aulro.com.au) it is a good idea that goes over well on that site. Someone posts something interesting and then someone else shows their appreciation by thanking the writer for their contribution to the site. I see a thanks functio...

Re: Archived because of danger (or not)

Mrs Happy Chappy and I had a discussion about this one last night - Our gut feeling is always instinctively "ooh, someone shouldn't place a cache where risk of injury is so high and so serious"... But then, on reflection, it is up to the individual and as long as the terrain rating and appropriate c...

Re: Thanks for the log

To expand on the initial thoughts... I know I could email someone to say thanks - for some reason that feels a bit too 'needy' to me, a bit over the top - Unless it was an outstanding or particularly unusual log that warranted it, such as someone performing maintenance for me and providing helpful a...

Re: What would you do. . .

Along these lines, I've always thought it'd be nice if there was some 'thanks for the log' feature on GC or GCA.... Sometimes people put wonderful logs on our caches and I'd love to say 'thanks' but another note on the log or an email to them sometimes feels like overkill.... To just press a button ...

Re: It seems bizarre to me ...

This truly is fascinating - And if there's nothing 'sinister' going on here, then it truly is a remarkable collection of seemingly odd-behaviours. (as if caching itself wasn't odd enough) Looking at the newbie FTFer, on all the finds they've found since (4 more on one day) they wrote the same exact ...

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

This may be a bit odd, but could we make this race the 'Shoe-in'? I'm always seeming to find shoes (either in a pair (often dangling over power lines or a single one somewhere odd....)) - Perhaps a shoe as a cache? (I know - high likelihood of it getting chucked as rubbish by muggles though). Or how...

Secret Forest Walks/Geocaching - Daylesford

Hi all, Just back from a couple of weeks camping, boating and caching around the Bendigo, Echuca and Daylesford regions.... While in Daylesford, the longsuffering wife was picking up some brochures and info about stuff to do and spied the word 'geocaching' upon a brochure for this mob: http://www.se...

Re: Dual Cache Listing on GCA and GC.

New one of these dual listings popped up today: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC2CQXW I'd just found it yesterday - Wondered for a second whether to log it again just to get it off my radar, but hit the ignore list again. I've actually been more amused by the fact that there a...

Re: Identical generated logs

poo to GSAK macros. where's the fun in pointless logs? And not just for the cache owner.... I can't wait to get home from a cache and write the story of the find.... And then re-reading them during boring work periods. :) I was guilty of pretty short logs in our earlier finds, but I've learned as we...
