  1. Retiring my caches

    Dropped the rest of them to you today.
  2. Retiring my caches

    I'll get them transferred to you as soon as I figure out how to.  Some are missing containers contact me is you need any help with them.      ETA: I sent one adoption request to you.  If I did it right and it goes through I'll transfer the rest of the On Location caches. 
  3. Retiring my caches

    One of the things about geocaching is that it has always been a community.  Something each of us has in common with others everywhere in the world.  I've always appreciated the contributions that have allowed me to explore my surroundings by caching.  So it is the least I can do to withdraw my small contribution with the same spirit that prompted so many of the great caches I have found.  Some of these caches are in good spots, if someone wants a spot rather than a cache, I'd be happy to make the transfer or coordinate the delisting.  
  4. Retiring my caches

    I have stopped caching for the most part and don't seem to find time to maintain my own caches.  So I have decided to retire my hides.  If anyone is interested in adopting some or all, please let me know in the next few weeks.  .
  5. 5th Annual CLAPS Moonlight Paddle Event 12/6

    Ya, that is something you can do for your own party, but not for a spouses.    Thankfully, my wife works with interesting people that, when pressed, can talk about something other than office politics.
  6. 5th Annual CLAPS Moonlight Paddle Event 12/6

    Bummer for me.  The wifes company christmas party is the same night.  So I'll be drinking mediocre wine and eating buffet horderves instead of paddling on the festive bayou waters.

    Your generosity in this matter outshines even your reputation for magnanimity.  It's on the calendar.

  9. Revise Memorial Mob?

    "But officer, the cache is just on the other side.  And it is sucha long way around."   And there was also the trip to the emergency room for one of the cachers whose previous fence climb had been in childhood.
  10. Revise Memorial Mob?

    I was part of a memorial Mob day or two.  We started with a "breakfast" even of a box of donuts on a tailgate.  The day included spending an inordinate amount of time finding the smallest container I had seen up to that time. Then there was the fence.  My map of Memorial park used to be all smileys.  That has has been a while so I am up for another day of caching there.
  11. BB's Nov 16 Flash Mob in the Pines!

    I'd love to go along but we have plans for the RenFest.  That is unless it is raining too heavily, in which case we'll skip the RenFest and.....
  12. TX"mas"GA Holiday Event

    Sound like fun, but I'll be skipping the caroling. My last impromptu singing engagement didn't end well. You would never have thought that old ladies could say such things and the old guys could have that good of an aim.
  13. Dawg's Oktoberfest

    I've heard of kayak polo, but kayak golf? That will take a while to learn. But if enough beer is involved it will be worth it. Maybe ATMA will add it as an exhibition even at the Geolymics.
  14. CLAPS: Paddle to the Picnic Event (Sat. Oct 13th.)

    I was on Armand Bayou this past weekend and it could use some clean up. It was for a group paddle so I mostly collected plastic bottles because they were easy to reach, but there are some spots where the stuff really collects in the far upstream area of the bayou. Someone with a fishing net could fill a bag is short order. I'll make the event if I can.
  15. CLAPS: Paddle to the Picnic Event (Sat. Oct 13th.)

    That is college family weekend for us, so it's unlikely I'll be able to join in.
