  1. I Just Made a Wherigo Cartridge

    IO never had that problem with Ranger fox's. I moved mine several times til I got what I wanted.
  2. I Just Made a Wherigo Cartridge

    Ok Like HC said on the stages, As long as you dont place anything physical the 528 ft rule matters not. On the emulator that is easy. Just zoom out till you see the icon that kinda looks like munzee thing. < I hate Munzee by the way.> It is green with a person inside it. Move it to the 1st zone and then the action's will take place. I have played with that a little here and there. I am not a professional Wherigo'er like HC I only have created 2 wherigo's. As far as having them get the cache before completing the cartridge I will say you will be disappointed. Alot of them never give codes even after you have completed them. Then when people gwet the code they very rarely imput the code on Wherigo.com's site. They are more for the smilely than the completion code, And the way groundspeak is you can not have alternate logging requirements, Hope this helps.
  3. Two Copies of a Travel Bug in Circulation?

    I have released the same trackable of my Columbian mammoth which I have several mammoths I bought clearanced out. They keep going missing. Right now I have not released it again.
  4. RIP HGCS (POLL)

    We will water board ya if you stop.
  5. RIP HGCS (POLL)

    It is one Place I never wanted to see go. I do not like change. So sad that the rest of the Caching community does not feel the same way, So much easier to find the things you are looking for. If so, it will truly be missed.
  6. Kayackers Alert

    I do not have a seatbelt on my yak. I say not for me.
  7. FTF Promotion

    What is sad is I took NEw Cachers out during the time frame. To find caches I already found. Did I get it??? No!!! Do I care? Not really. They took the WWF one away but yet they Give one for almost any thing now adays they are nothing to be proud of these days. Hate to say it. Just my two cents. I'll go play in my corner of this round room now.

  9. Anybody Want to Adopt My Choo Choo Series?

    LilSpitFire has been wanting to ride the train every time she comes with me to MD An. I have my mind off caching most of the time. This might be a fun little ride. Hope you don't archive to soon.
  10. Death of a Local Favorite???????

    It is sad to say we have lost another Geocaching website. With myself and just a couple more hits a month the SETXGANGs web page was taken down. I hope this one does not follow.
  11. Forum decline

    I like the forums more facebook. I might not respond on here but it is so much easier to find info I need,
  12. Final coordinates for geowyz's 23-SUR

    Yes please PM them to me
  13. GBP TEXAS - soda tubes on tallows

    I have a cache that stays under water 365 days out of the yr and it is still the original soda tube after 4 yrs. Soda tubes do have there place. I would think the pelican case's would be too costly on on a series. My little P&G series in LA is over 90 % soda tubes and it seems like everyone is ok with them. Could be worse. They could have drove a piece of rebar in the ground then put a magnetic nano on to of it. Found one like that in the Angelina National Forest. And at that put I said " who puts a nano in a Forest."
  14. Running Up the Numbers

    Me and PromedRick did the 242 series http://coord.info/GC3EH07 and I finished the day off with 100 finds that day. Around the lakes THEPASTOR http://coord.info/GC397CF has alot. We did 120 in a day up there and then Promed went back another day and did 180. The ELEMENT series http://coord.info/GC397CF out towards Katy could be done in a day or two Think its like 99 caches but what til it has not been raining. The Claps event http://coord.info/GC62A15 on the 12 would be one I would recommend. Wish I could go this year. Depends on where ya live, But Baytown has an nice little series I enjoyed doing another day we got over 100. BaytownBurts http://coord.info/GC2HQV6 .
  15. GC.com Search

    Not sure if everyone knows but the old search is back. When you click on play and the new search pops up look in the lower right corner of the picture. A link to take me to old search is there.
  16. Geotour rape by GS

    What I find sad about it is that I only see tours that within 3 hours of my home. Brenham and Homa are the only two that show in the little window of advertising on GC.com . So they pay the money to advertise to what I would call locals. Why waste the money.
  17. Houma GeoTour or Trinity Trails GeoTour

    I have done neither one but have heard this. Tiffany Hamilton Doyen with Deborah Buswell May 22 at 4:25pm Just wanted to pass on some words of wisdom about the Trinity Trails Geocaching Adventure GeoTour in Fort Worth. If you have your sights set on that tour, take the time beforehand to check the logs. It requires you to find at least 25 of the 30 caches to receive a geocoin. DJBTex and I attempted this tour while in the DFW area last week for my work conference. At this time, there are less than 25 good caches available. Many of the caches have multiple DNF's, and they aren't being maintained. It's really a sad situation because this tour has great potential. I've never attempted a geotour that was in such bad shape - and this one is brand new!
  18. May the 4th Be with you. GC4V331

    People who show up monday at 6 with star wars related things might get a treat.
  19. Challenge Cache Moratorium

    Would challenge cache that require you to find 1 of seven types in a day up to a six of seven types be the types you consider a bit far fetched? Guess a puzzle that published 8/11/14 that has yet to get a find on is as well. Lol
  20. S P A M arrrrrrrrrggggg

    Does that mean I'll be able to Email ya for a hint on GCNP2K East Texas’ Hardest Mystery Cache I mean you did say I could not get help from other finders. Didn't see anything about help from the cache owner.
  21. External GPS signal booster

    I know its not the same but for those that have the I-Pad <my i-pad mini> with out GPSr I use this. http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Elf-GPS-Lightning-Connector/dp/B00G2BX616/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1428953914&sr=8-2&keywords=bad+elf I used it alot. Even makes Wherigo's easier on the bigger screen.
  22. Wherigo Builder

    Just built one this weekend. Went out in the rain with Mudfrog for him to try it out before I publish it. He used my Oregon 550 and had no problem but one. I used my Ipad mini with out the built in GPS but I did have the bad elf plugged into it Had a little lag on the zones but it worked good. I like this builder so far.
  23. Two new Souvenir's Coming up...

    Having fun with PR. " Cache Control Premium Member 1474 Post Reviewer Note 03/01/2015 Ok per your request I have changed the difficulty rating from a 1.5 to a 1 which I do not agree with since it will be a crowded area and new cachers will not know for sure who we are. As far as naming where it is I am following the rules set forth in Geocaching.com " It contains the name of a business or commercial product. Examples include: "Check out Mac's Beef house nearby, my favorite local BBQ spot!". There for I have chose not to list the name. Please inform me if I need to change anything else. Thank you Cache Control. View / Edit Log / Images Upload Image Prime Reviewer Reviewer Temporarily Disable Listing 02/28/2015 This appears to be inside a mall. You might want to name the location. Also, why is the Difficulty > 1?
  24. Bogus TB Discovery Logs

    That's like all the pics I have taken at the last two texas challenges bet yet to log. By now I figure what's the point they will think I just found a list. But what is real funny is when a tracable that has only left my house once gets looked every couple months a while back by the same cacher in our area. I just laugh every time I see her in person.
