  1. Groundspeak is always trying to reinvent the mousetrap.
  2. Geocaching merit badges.

    I asked one of reviewers (Reviewer Reven) if a scout could release a trackable instead of hiding a cache and get credit for the badge and he thought it was so. This would keep a lot of Scout caches from being abandoned.
  3.'s name search

  4. How much climbing

    In the world of geocaching, a fire hydrant terrain rating of 5 is like climbing Mt. Everest to many of us. LOL I say stick a 2.5 on most of them and you cover the age spectrum nicely. The whole idea of these ratings mean little to nothing to most of us. Again I laugh, because we all see what we want to see.
  5. New Shuttle?!?! And a Canada souvenir too?

    I'll be there in my underwear!
  6. I had a hard drive crash and just re-downloaded the .exe file.
  7. What's Electric Water Boy Talking About?

    Its a promotion. find a multi today or tomorrow and you get a souvy.
  8. Longest since last find

    I wonder how many of these caches have been checked on by the CO in the last 6 months.
  9. Pokemon GO

    I saw two boys on bikes today at the event in Seabrook playing the game. I was waiting to hear the crash. LOL
  10. Pokemon GO

    What I see here is small businesses, like ice cream parlors, placing a Pokemon inside their store to attract youngsters playing the game. Other than that it is a fluff game. YMMV JuleeD and I are teaching LEO's on the 23rd and we will cover the differences between that game and the real game of geocaching.
  11. Help me please

    What about at the airport?

  15. Lost Maples State Park in summer

    I can't say for certain if this works 100%, but rubbing baby oil or Gojo into your legs, then spraying down with insect spray may just create an oil barrier and prevent chiggers from getting a bite. It will also create an oil barrier for poison ivy. I know when I used Cedarcide, I did not get chiggers. The stuff is just expensive. Gojo is cheap.
