I don't know what (s)he was using, but they had no clue it defaulted to that nor that they could do a real log from the mobile phone.  E-mail prompted some investigating and they learned.  I've only seen the gc app, so not sure how any of the other ones work.

See, I had the memories of Nevada in my mind and HC has to post something about a *banana hammock*....  ;D :D




I've been getting a bunch of "Logged from my Mobile Device" logs, which means they didn't bother to write anything.  >:(

You told me once that sometimes you don't even read all the found logs on your caches.  :police:

You guys are always getting your panties in a bunch about the silliest things.

I don't think that was me.  I generally read all the logs to my caches.  I don't read all the discovery logs to my geocoins, like after I've taken my collection to a big event and get 500 discovery emails, though.

As far as my panties being in a bunch, missy, I usually wear a thong or banana hammock, so they're ALWAYS in a bunch!  :teasing:
<how's that for a nice mental image?>

Perhaps a way to educate the newbies is to invite them to a newbie class that is put on by a veteran cacher.  Email invitations could go out to some of those newbies that seem to be doing the things that are annoying the veterans.  I'm not volunteering to do this training because it's not bugging me enough to do anything about it and I just don't have the time or energy right now to do so.  If I were feeling better and I didn't have 2 weddings in the family coming up, I might volunteer, but the time is not right now for me now.  It could be a way of getting out the information without them feeling attacked like an email addressing the issue might make them feel.

I suspect that there are 2 basic groups of people who geocache.  Those who want something new/flash in the pan types, who do it for a short while and lose interest.  Education is not even a concern, as they will move on as soon as the shine wears off.

The second group tend to be a bit anal (right?) and regardless of what happens next, they will seek out all the info they can find to promote their interest.

Both groups will make initial mistakes.  Heckfire, I'm still making them left and right.  :angel:

Nope neither of those are me. There must be at least a third group where I belong. I love love love geocaching, but I could care less how or if you log one of my caches. Heck you don't even have to go find the cache for all I care, log it from your couch if that is what you are into. 

My philosophy is "you do you, and I will do me"

Note: Add 3rd group:  Rebellious by nature.  They don't give a rats meow, just want to have fun.  :2funny:

It is always good to say what you feel - better than just packing up and going way.  That being said, we are in the process of planning a high end D/T series in George Bush Park that may cause you pain in a different way!  >:D


COOL!  Bring the pain!!! O0


You ready for this?

I bet that's a logging error.  He's been caching since 2008 and has over 350 finds.  At least once I have forgotten to change the type from Found to DNF.  Mrs Hazlenuts promptly corrected me.  :angel:
