    • Longest since last find
      I logged another  DNF on this one. I probably waited to long after it was replaced.   Chasing a Night Time Ninja GC2TJF4 - was last found on 9/8/12 by TAZ427 and TeamPoliceBike36 with one DNF since.
    • We need a team captain for 2016!
      I realize that by starting this topic, one might think that I am volunteering--I most certainly am not.  A colleague of mine retired and I am teaching a course this semester that I haven't taught in over a decade.  This means that my always hectic spring semester is busier than usual, and I don't have the time to be team captain.  Additionally, I think it is probably helpful if the team captain kind of lives in the general area where most of the team lives--and we live in Huntsville. We (Tealcat and I) plan to compete and we need a team captain! Is anyone willing to volunteer? 
    • GBP TEXAS - soda tubes on tallows
      I am the owner of the "A" in "TEXAS".  Did you check each cache page for the pictures i put up showing the exact location of the cache?  I did that so folks could tell if something had changed in the area or could look around close to GZ if the area had flooded or maybe the trees (especially in the "A" where the fire hit a few years ago) have deteriorated.  I use rope (or string) to attach most (if not all) of the caches because I think zip ties will break from growth or from exposure to the sun.  Soda tubes are by far the most resilient containers (metal ammo cans are also very good) as long as people put them back together tightly.  I have had issues lately with a large ammo can that had lots of water in it because a finder didn't put the cap back on - I can't fix those kind of issues. The ammo can on A7 survived the fire so I left it out there as a reminder of how hot it got at that time - it's not from lack of maintenance.  If there's a leak or something that is different and I'll check on it next time I'm out there. This was the first DNF on the caches out there for the "A", so I wouldn't necessarily go out and do maintenance until I know there are issues.  If you looked at the pictures and the cache is definitely not there, that would be very helpful to know - too often I go to a cache that is DNF'ed and it's still there. I have added a note to the cache description on A1 to let folks know that I will provide replacement containers to anyone heading out in the case that caches are missing.  I also added a note to each page reminding folks that there is a picture of the exact cache location for each "A" cache.   I also have another plan to help with replacement caches - stay tuned.   All being said - I am going on a maintenance run tomorrow (2/7/16) at 7am, leaving from the east parking lot.  Anyone can join me if they'd like - haven't been out slogging in the park for a while.  Message me if you'd like to join.   Larry
