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

You fly all the way from Melbourne to New Orleans without any sleep at all. When you arrive, having been awake for 36 plus hours, you leave your HTC Hero phone on the Aiport Shuttle and your first thought is not "Oh no, how will I contact my family", not "Oh god, I hope no-one uses that to hack my e...

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

Question about "ethics" for this race. Is it OK to have a "hide" where the finder has to ask a receptionist for the "cache" ? In other words, would it be within the spirit for me to have the gnome at work and have the receptionist worded up to hand him over ?

Re: Cemetery Caching ?

Just the odd gnome rescue mission?

(Good to hear the gnomes are ok!)
Yep, rescuing stranded gnomes and scribbling stuff in cut-down notebooks hidden in tupperware boxes under piles of twigs. :P
