When I place a cache, of course I'll try to make it as accurate as possible. It's not always possible to be spot on however due to the many different environments caches are placed in. I average for quite some time and have been known to forget about an area because the signals are just too low. Wha...

Here's a little send up of Steve Irwin that might bring a smile to your crocodile. Beware, it's South Park so Parental Guidance is in order.

Good one GIN51E !!! :D Perhaps if the cache is so exposed, I should have placed some carefully cut out cardboard over it. :) I'm not buying the Poison River theory for one second though. I still like the LSD theory better. He was, after all, a scientist. If not LSD maybe he was experimenting with so...

CRIKEY!!!!........ What a way to go. :(

Many times I'd wished a croc would eat the bugger, but I have to admit he was larger than life and we'll actually miss his antics.

My sincere sympathies go to his family.

I actually got the "Ophidiophobia"cache name from the "Snakes On A Plane" trailer. They were originally going to call the movie that. The movie is great if you want a good laugh. It's not serious at all......It's a comedy......kind of like Flying High meets Airport. There is a classic scene where a ...

Back in the days before mobile phones became affordable to the average person, the only people that had them were the very wealthy and the phones were always installed in their cars, they were not yet small enough to be carried around. Of course this included such prominent figures as high rating ra...

I have been listening to VKG (Sydney Police Radio) for 30 years and even wrote a column for ASM scanning magazine. The best place to go for all your emergency service scanning is a site called "The Spectrum's Edge" . I can tell you with certainty that there is nothing illegal about simply listening ...

A 9v battery and light steel works like a charm.

Even penlights will start a fire. I know that because I had one start in my pocket once when I was carrying a couple around with my keys.

Actually that's not the right place. The house is a little further north of this. Your clip is actually the eviction stage area.

A great read Bob :)

Congratulations on a very professional "book" as they say in the newspaper industry. I am sure we all appreciate the great work you put in.

Many thanks :!:

How soon we all forget! I can remember when 10 metres out was quite an acceptable error. In fact our first hundred finds and indeed many of our placements were done with a GPSr that had only 2 digits after the seconds. When you consider that this could mean an error of 10 metres not to mention the f...

You wouldn't have hesitated in the good ol' days, Mr Loon. I can remember a certain log of yours that speaks of fumbling around in the darkness with barking dogs and snapping twigs, (or should that be snapping dogs and barking twigs) waking the neighbourhood at some ungodly hour of the night. :) Ide...

I have contacted AusHiker on this subject and hope to be of help if I can. If it is allowed, and someone wants to take over this side of Geocaching I am more than happy to help, but I would suggest that going "wider" than the guidlines set out in the original cache is not a good idea. There are simp...
