  1. ~windknot~ added a post in a topic How often are your caches found?   

    I have a series in KHP that most caches in it haven't been attempted in over a year. It does require some hiking though. I'm planning to make a maintenance run through as soon as the rains stop long enough to let the area drain but I'm undecided on whether I should even keep it going if nobody is visiting them.

    What android app do you use to find a beacon cache?

    I don't think there are any rules against a cache being somewhere that you have to pay to enter. In fact, there is an attribute for that on regular (not Lab) caches.

    Are these lab caches?

    Or maybe even the 31st day of the 4th month.

    Sure.

    Is anybody working on the puzzle for Blood Sport GC2MEAR ?
     
    I was in the location of the final and decided to look to see if it was there since I knew it was on the list.  No such luck.  If someone is close to working it out I can replace it since the owner looks to have dropped out a few years ago.  Otherwise, I can post a NA.
  8. ~windknot~ added a post in a topic What kind of boots to buy?   

    Hiking boots make more sense to me than a work boot like that.  Work boots aren't usually as comfortable as a hiking boot so you'll be able to walk much further with hiking boots.  These are what I use.  http://www.rei.com/product/706762/asolo-fugitive-gtx-hiking-boots-mens.   They got me through an 11-day backpacking trip a few years ago and are still going strong. 
     
    If you're worried about snakes, you could always keep a pair of ray guards in your car and strap them on when you are going anywhere "snakey".  https://www.austinkayak.com/products/5453/ForEverlast-Ray-Guard-Shied-Protectors.html
     
    Whatever you get, I recommend getting a pair of Superfeet insoles to go with your new boots.  http://www.rei.com/product/752125/superfeet-orange-premium-insoles-mens-medium-to-high-volume.  Your feet will thank you.  When you try on your boots, pick a size that will give you a little extra room for the insoles.

    That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!

    That's no ordinary rabbit.
  11. ~windknot~ added a post in a topic D Force logging trackables   

    He logged one of mine with that same note at GCF. I knew it was probably BS by his reputation so I checked his cache log history. Sure enough, he wasn't anywhere near Texas at the time. He must have a friend that sends (sells?) him a list after events like this.

    Enjoy it out there.  Springhill has some good catfish!
  13. ~windknot~ added a post in a topic Hey! Where are all the pics from Geocoin Fest ?   

     
    I've got your goodie bag with your shirt, coins and stuff.  You've still got time to claim it before the ebay auction ends!

    Thanks.  I tried it with quotes and it worked this time. "That's one more find for me!"
  15. ~windknot~ added a post in a topic GC GeoTours   

     
    They call it a "Geo Trail", not a Geo Tour but I intend to do the JFK Geo Trail in Dallas at some point.  It's somewhat of a gloomy subject for a geo trail but I do enjoy visiting places that can put historical events in context for you.
