Re: It must not be about the numbers...

Okay, I'll bite-- What does he do for a living and why is/was HE there? Ah. He does a lot of environmental / geological survey work. In 2003 his company was contracted by the USGS, which was doing some environmental oversight for the navy on Adak. Running tests, establishing monitoring wells, that ...

Conflicts with Hidden Stages

... instructive role. For example, if a hider has bumped up against a proximity issue, I think it would make sense to offer more of an engaged dialog about placing the cache somewhere new. Maybe instead of allowing the cacher (especially the newer cacher) to go through all of the work to rehide and ...

Re: Stories About Where We've Let Our GPS'rs Take Us

It took us down a residential street to a house on the right of the street as our final destination. Mind you, as I said, we didn't punch in any towns or addresses -- we just punched in Food and spelled out McDonalds. We had almost the exact same thing happen to us! We were using the factory instal...

Re: Geocache TV show

A small budget movie coming out sometime this year (spring?) called "Find Me", about geocachers who get caught up in a kidnapping plot... From a glimpse at the trailer you can tell it's not a "major motion picture", but waddyagonnado. ...

Re: Virtual Cache

... at the coordinates, to the same end. In Manhattan, there is a virtual in Washington Square Park that asks you to answer a number of questions about a particular statue found there.

Re: The War of Light is on!

... I grabbed a handful of FTFs at a time from the JLA series when a few were published simultaneously, and even as a finder I felt a little awkward about it, like it was costing the series a little something. I hear what CoA is saying about ignoring the second listing, but I'm wondering - does that ...

Re: A nice 100th Cache

... option might be Sleepy Hollow (GCAE), which was the first cache ever placed in the Metro NY area, back in November 2000. It looks like it's only about 10 miles from the starting point of your James Bond cache and could be a nice nod to history. Sight Unseen (GC15NP2) is about 50 miles east, on ...

Mammut caches in NYC

... BLAA, there was one in Long Beach too: It's too bad we didn't know about these at the time - would have been fun to race for some high-end FTF prizes!

Re: What about this page doesn't seem right?

There's a pilot / flight attendant couple that logs one of my caches as found whenever they visit (about every year or so). I haven't begrudged them that.

That is weird about NYA publishing it as a Traditional.
