Re: Garmin Chirp

I never agreed with that D5 in the first place for many caches....Just because I have access to a simple Dakota 20 GPS etc, this should not be a reason to list them as possibly the hardest cache to find....harder than many other caches. :? Not that we can do much about it now, the rules have been de...

Re: Caches that solicit

Lucky they are small otherwise it may hurt. :-k 8-[ I'm preparing to publish my "send me $5 for a smilie" cache. :twisted: Whilst the system allows for this, it is not something that I would wish to flourish. Isn't this something that them those Senators can discuss......gotta earn their money someh...

Re: Cheap custom stamps - $4 shipped

Shipping confirmed last week, no offers yet, no stamp yet ...... probably the second best outcome so far. \:D/

Re: "Sent from my mobile device"

While I haven't had any yet on my caches, I think I would be tempted to delete on the basis the log shows no indication they have actually found it... Could that not be said of virtually all cache logs? :? The online logging has no verification of the cacher ever being at GZ, therefore we need to r...

Re: Garmin Chirp

Geocaching?? Oh, OK. #-o I thought it had been developed for hiding weapon stockpiles, locked drug stashes in the city and to help the espionage industry? Geocaching? Who'd have thunk? What a fantastic device for terrorists our brave soldiers. :lol: Would have been cool if this was some kind of 'be...

Re: Garmin Chirp

Surely Groundspeak and Garmin would have had secret discussions about this device before pushing the production button? :shock: No more commercial than the good old WheriGo caches that limited the number of devices able to be utilised. BTW, hypothetically, I wonder if the cache would be published if...

Re: Nightcaching headlamps

With the benefit of infinitely variable light output and focusing (flood to throw feature), I have switched across to the (value for money) chinese knockoffs of the LedLenser H7 from Dealextreme 8-[. Can't complain for up to 130 lumens for around $20 delivered. =D> http://www1.dealextreme.com/produc...

Re: It seems bizarre to me ...

Welcome PR 8) The issue of emails sent can be explained by the proliferation of throw away email addresses these days. Years ago, i signed up with a yahoo email address IIRC, and NEVER looked at the emails unless required (confirmation requirements etc). This email is still around somewhere so may e...

Re: 1.36 minutes per cache.....sounds like fun :)

I think i'd lose interest in the challenge after the 3rd one #-o

Lucky person sitting in the vehicle for 24 hours @ 0-30 km/hr keeping the beast from overheating. :-&

Glad they had fun, just not my cup of tea. [-(

1.36 minutes per cache.....sounds like fun :)

From this GC thread : On Sept 27th, 2010 we took a trip out to the Alien Highway in Nevada. Our goal was to find all 1021 ET geocaches in 24 hours (they are numbered E.T. #001 thru E.T. #1021). We only took one vehicle and 4 geocachers. We only drove 165 miles between 2 gas stations, yet we had to a...
