  1. And other archived caches can, on occasion, still be found.
  2. It is the "thin red line of courage" flag representing firefighters.
  3. Got mine!
  4. I seem to remember a challenge cache with a title similar to the title for this topic, but I don't remember all of the details. It was a challenge to find caches in towns throughout Texas that begin with each letter in the alphabet. I also seem to remember that a cache in Mexia would count for X. We were caching in Mexia today. And the search function at has changed, making it more difficult to find caches by name. So…does anyone know about the cache I'm describing and have a GC code?
  5. I didn't know about the county version, and the one in Plano sounds like it might be the one I remember--much appreciated!
  6. That certainly matches the name, but I must have the wrong name. Perhaps it is a name like Texas Alphabet Challenge. The idea was to find 26 caches around the state--such as a cache in Abilene to count for A, a cache in Bedias to count for B and so on.
  7. Thank you for sharing.
  8. I generally refer to "it" as "asocial media".
  9. I'm certainly not one who would have an idea of how to do this in an elegant way. Key Results and Team Four Paw occasionally check in--perhaps they will have an idea. My only other ideas would require accessing old logs.
  10. It does seem to be getting rather echoey in here. I think some people have moved…some have retired…I'm not sure what has happened to everyone. Perhaps some have gotten burnt out. In regard to your question, I don't know the answer. I suppose if you had a history of the bugs (and I don't know how one gets that), you could look at the history of the individual TB to see if they ever were dropped off.
  11. I had seen hints that it was gone, but since the only time I have ever used it is to check just a couple of puzzles, it wasn't something that I thought I should repeat.
  12. This sounds like a job for Team Four Paw!!! (cue appropriate super hero music)
  13. Welcome back!
  14. I think his question is "how did you know about them in advance to earn them?"
  15. For most of the date/event specific souvenirs, I find out about them here or on various geocache social media groups. Groundspeak sends out notices of some. If you haven't seen those, you might need to adjust your settings so you you get their emails.
  16. I have no experience with a Nuvi.
  17. I visit. I just have nothing to say with respect to Bluetooth Antenna. I expected Key Results to comment.
  18. We haven't made it to the Houma tour. We plan to some time..but not yet.
  19. Or you can take up Letterboxing and go find the ones that are listed, and perhaps by elimination you can identify the one you found.
  20. Here's a link for LetterBoxes of North America for Challenger Seven Memorial Park: (the link didn't work--but here's a link for the organization link) Put in Challenger Seven Memorial Park, and you'll get close to 200 links.
  21. While it might be interesting to actually write an obituary, I don't really have the time to do so right now. Much of the activity on this site has dropped off for whatever reason. However, I think the activity will pick up, especially in the private area, once the planning begins for the Texas Challenge. I think that communication is REALLY important and it would be a shame if this went away. I don't post much anymore on this site mainly because I never did initiate many topics, but I have been known to comment on the posts of others. So, if others are posting less, I end up posting less. Since I live on the extreme edge of the Houston area, I have always felt somewhat on the fringe of the group. I'm not yet at retirement age, but will be within a decade, and when I retire I know that we will move elsewhere. For those two reasons, (and my general level of being over-worked at work), I will not step up and volunteer to take over administration of this site. I think it would be a huge shame if it dies.
  22. However, if everyone made all of their caches Premium Member Only, there would be very few caches out there for newbies to learn on. One would hope that newbies wouldn't be rude though.
  23. Sad? This is something that has gotten my teenagers to go out for walks while we are on vacation! Let me repeat--they are voluntarily going out and walking around so they can build up mileage to hatch pokemon eggs! This is wonderful!
  24. You wouldn't happen to know who to contact to make that happen would you? The Normettes are all over Pokemon Go.
  25. And I assume that the same can be done now. But perhaps someone has already grabbed the location. It couldn't hurt to try.
