Lol I've seen some ordinary ones, but that takes the cake. :? :? :? Why would I want to drive there just on the off chance that there might even be something interesting there, let alone a half decent cache :shock: On the basis of that cache descrition... absolutely nothing. However, there are thre...

Crappy cache description? Not to be mean or anything, but check out this newly published literary epic: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=0ca09754-016a-4bd9-8817-4c08b3b9e0da (Apologies for the lengthy URL). I love the Flinders area, and would be keen to go out there, but honest...

If you're going to go to the trouble of putting a TB on a space station, you would think that you woud at least add some photos to the listing, to make it look a tad more interesting.

Lot's of photos... I like a pretty listing... [:D]

I also have the Vista HCx and find the electronic compass really useful - makes finding caches much easier than when I first started and was using a combination of an old Garmin GPSII (accurate to 10m) and my trusty Silva compass. I still usually take my compass with me (old habbits die hard). The o...

Links for some the episodes that Mundoo refers to:

Episode 5 (5A & 5B):

The only problem is that I couldn't watch any more than 10-20 seconds of them saying KASHing. :shock:

Sweet Jesus I hate KASHing! :evil:

Instead, I made contructive comments in the online log, and sent them an email asking if they'd like a hand putting their next cache out! Bitching about the initial crappy hide isn't going to help caching into the future. Now that's a positive way to prevent 'crappy' cache placement. Nice work. :)

Hey Mundoo, The GCA site has a great wiki section. Cache sizes and other things are explained here: http://wiki.geocaching.com.au/wiki/Cache_size Your sandwich-sized cache is, by definaition, a small cache. There is also nothing wrong with the easy, drive-by caches. As much as I love a cache that re...

Could this be another ' assignment' from a surveying student????? No finds 1 hide and not contactable? This may have been covered before somewhere in the forums, but would it be reasonable to make it necessary for someone to have found a certain number of caches before having a hide published? Perh...

Replies: 26

As previously stated, the downside to an Eclipse tin is that it isn't waterproof, so needs to be placed out of the rain. I've found a couple of eclipse caches placed in trees that simply will not protect the contents from the element. As such, they need to be placed in a relatively sheltered spot. (...
