1. Mud Boots - I actually have them, but they're usually in the garage since I don't think ahead...

1.  What do you find that most often you don't have in you pack that you need?

Gloves- I end up taking them out to use for some other thing or another.

2.  What is the most unexpected thing that has helped you find or get to a cache? 

Harris County Sherrif's Deputies (all three of them)

3.  What is the most common tool you use in your pack? 

A Can of DEET for about 8 months out of the year...and if MichaelCarrie is there, I always need some extra batteries for their flashlight and GPS. (As for tools, my knife's in my pocket *always* )

4.  If you could have anything in your pack at all, what would it be (besides the coords to a puzzle final)?

Refreshment Refridgeration. It would be nice to have a chilly beverage while walking back to the vehicle.

5.  Adding -- what have you purchased (that maybe you never would have) JUST so you could get a cache?

A GPS.... ;)

5.  Adding -- what have you purchased (that maybe you never would have) JUST so you could get a cache?
A 24' collapsible pole, like used for a light bulb changer or a pool skimmer.  I was going to make different attachments for the end -- a hook, a grabber, a magnet, etc -- but since Aaron Barbee stopped putting out insane Soda Tube Trials caches, I haven't progressed any further on this project.  :P


Man, I really need to get some more insane caches out.  Things have been busy for me lately and my weekends are tied up.  BUT, I'm working on that... AND a new series!  ;)

This new series will now be put on the front-burner as I've been dragging my feet WAY too long.

AND, Bert has gently reminded me I've been slacking in my maintenance.  I'm going to make a list and stick to it!

I was going to say something, but I let Bert do my dirty work for me.  ::)

We all have certain things in our geocaching packs... but what I'm interested in is:

1.  What do you find that most often you don't have in you pack that you need? Depends!  The noun not the verb.

2.  What is the most unexpected thing that has helped you find or get to a cache?  The key to the lock on my straightjacket.

3.  What is the most common tool you use in your pack?  Nose hair trimmer

4.  If you could have anything in your pack at all, what would it be (besides the coords to a puzzle final)? A Taurus Judge! (Google it!)

5.  What have you purchased (that maybe you never would have) JUST so you could get a cache?  Toyota FJ Cruiser. Oh and donuts!

Give me a break... I couldn't sleep.

The light-bulb replacement tool I bought to change light-bulbs in the new house.  It worked and I got the cache, but it was destroyed in the process.


Sorry Crossmage...

I carry a small compass for those times when I'm closing in on a cache in thick woods and I can't really move enough to get the GPSr oriented correctly.  Yeah, I could turn on the electronic compass in the 60Csx, but usually it needs calibration and I don't always want to mess with it at the time.

Special Tools Required! http://www.geocachin...7d-ef0a19d49b82 is fully re-enabled now that construction is done (there is a new sidewalk along a good portion of the way where there used to not be one.). All stages have been checked/maintained/updated/improved/etc. and it's like new.

If you take away the mossie component, now is a perfect time to do this one. PM me ahead of time if you plan on coming. If I'm home, I can be on standby to rescue you with the right tool. ;) :P :angel:
