fehrgo, 4am :shock: Another shiftworker?? I think comparing confluences with virtuals is being awfully unkind to confluences. I know virtuals that were knocked back here as they were not within a maintainable distance for the owner. I'm not a fan of virtuals, I was as a newbie a few years ago but wi...

When is a Virtual not a Virtual - when it's an Earthcache! This sucks. You either allow virtuals as they were or don't allow any including Earthcaches. They are springing up in East Gippsland at an alarming rate. If any other practically brand newbie cacher put out 7 caches several hundred km from h...

I have a 250gig Maxtor OneTouch also. At least the Netgear SC101 doesn't have the PITA "Windows Delayed Write Error" issues that the portable hard drive has. I have nearly thrown that at a brick wall on a number of occasions. (At least then I could take the hard disk magnets and use them for a cache...

I've gone for a Netgear SC101. Link here http://www.netgear.com.au/images/products/thumbnails/sc101.jpg SC101 - walks softly & carries a big hard drive (or 2) You can use it with two separate drives as two distinct drives, or you can set it up with two as mirrors of each other - ie. same data on bot...

Well I'll be. It does multi register on the same cache. Had I thought about it longer I'd have had the answer cos otherwise #51 Trig - Great Southern Land would never have worked. :oops: But I tried it on one of the last caches I logged. It incremented on the second log, and decreased by one when I ...

I think you'll find GC.com will filter out two claimed finds on the same cache by the same registered user as only one find. When I replaced Apprentice Hero after it was muggled with Weary worked here, the hide method and cache size were completely different. I talked to a few people and asked that ...

First caching snake: Polly McQuinns Wombat Hole (Derringer's) Small brown snake guarding the likely location of the first micro. Gave up this one for winter caching only after that. Second caching snake: Polly's Well (??owner) After finding the cache - SWMBO reached in for it - we moved off and logg...

Ah. What I wouldn't give to have the ability to go out and find 10 caches in an afternoon without doing 150-250km... All this numbers stuff is giving me a headache. Congrats to the Hawmorfords for the record they haven't claimed. I think however I'll stick to caches with record kilometres between ca...

Chwiliwr, This helps but the timing is the issue that interests me. As stated earlier in the thread, you need to find each cache in an average time of 14 mins & a bit even if you cache for 24 hours straight. T That includes everything, travel between caches as well. Drop it to 18 hours and the time ...

Time for a 60 Minutes style name and shame session :twisted:
<P>
Let's not go there....

But I do now avoid caches placed by particular teams, and I'm ultraquick to do maintenance visits after visits by others.

A question if I may for those contributing here who have made numbers attempts: In the case where you arrive at your chosen target and there are muggles nearby or even in the vicinity, or you have found the cache while unhindered by muggles but one then approaches and hangs around, what do you do? I...

Hawmorfords, Since when did anyone say you cheated? It is not unreasonable to question that which SEEMED extremely difficult. It happens in all sports in all corners of the globe in far more public forums than this one. It is not unreasonable to discuss what is and isn't a find. I'm sure you had a g...

What's sad is that hawmorfords and dak spent quite some time planning a good, fun day of caching & then after achieving their goal & feeling really excited about what they achieved, they're made to feel like criminals after people immediately jump to attack their credibility. (I don't know that the...

September 16 by HawMorFords (941 found) #7 of 101 finds for the day in the company of Dak's Emu Mob. Having talked about Lois Lane's Boyfriend and the Man Of Steel on the way to the cache, we new exactly what to expect but unfortunately, when we arrived, he was nowhere to be seen. We found the cach...

Okay. Who's going to be brave enough to back me up here. 24 hours 101 caches = 14mins 20 secs per cache. That allows no time for driving between, sustenance, fueling vehicles if required, a loo break. It's simply not achievable if you actually have to search for each cache. If you had one cache that...
