  1. Anybody Want to Adopt My Choo Choo Series?

    I guess I didn't realize that how a cache is found would merit it's existence, but if it does go away I'll surely miss it. I wouldn't miss it because I searched for them as "how it should be" found, (#StreakerProblems), but because I think it serves as an easy smile for those unfamiliar with Downtown Houston and the struggle with GPS is at that location. What can I say, I get a kick of tourists creating a memory out of a geocache, no matter how simple it is to find. Quite a few of my logs at my Hobby Airport cache are the only Texas find for them. And, even if it's a "TFTC - my first Texas find!" kind of log, it brings a smile to my face.
  2. Forum decline

    No bones about it: I'm a millennial and a heavy FB user. I do check this forum daily and will respond to new topics, but otherwise don't have anything new to say
  3. News to Me!

    So I've been thinking on how to get a better D/T range of caches in the SE area & I had an idea to create a 3.5/4.5 cache by having a nano up a climbing rope. I've used climbing ropes in crossfit, but this one in particular is slippery because it's thin & made of nylon...oh, and the wind will twirl you around, (it did for me while placing!). Not only that, juggling a nano in your hands while at a top of the rope is really difficult. PR archived it upon "publishing" because it's on school property citing a 2009 Colorado bomb scare by a geocache. I see the point. I did, however, remember this local cache at a school that's been there for a long time, but I'll concede that this one will not happen. SO, does anyone else know where a climbing rope is other than the Clear Lake HS track? I didn't want to completely abandon the difficulty/terrain challenge...
  4. Snake ID

    Farancia abacura? There are some vibrant pictures online, but then some duller snakes that look a lot like your picture. Either way, the color may be hidden from your view in this picture? Did you happen to see if it was more red on the underside? That length appears a little long to be a single snake...did you happen to catch two snakes in a "springtime dance"?
  5. Lake WHAT?!?

    All arguments stated are a matter of personal opinion. My personal opinion on the matter is: "why rename anything?" If it didn't have that historical reference, albeit negative, then this conversation wouldn't exist. Simply "erasing" the past isn't going to change it. I think it's healthy to find out more about a subject and names can spark that inquisitive nature to know more.
  6. Who's Prime Reviewer

    Oh, that toughie has my mental capacity all over it...alligator or crocodile?!
  7. Who's Prime Reviewer

    So, what you're saying is you started this thread, because if BB was PR then you'd write something cute in the note like: "Can't wait to see Wendy at the next Blue Heron Parkway CITO!"? What do most people put in the "note" anyway? I just normally say: "Thank you for all you do!" 'cause it's volunteering anyway, & every volunteer just wants a little thanks...
  8. How Many People Are Having This Problem?

    My geocaches down BrookForest greenway get taken frequently enough. Did I mention the one time that I went to replace a log & a dog dung was inside the container? I've never seen my poor husband jump so high! -------- PS: The cache I DNF'd of yours mid-town today I used the picture in the hint that did not have a deliberate arrow, so ooops, I looked in the wrong area. I'll try again when I'm in the area & it's not sunset.

    ...what a professional.
  10. What is geocaching Mojo?

    Preach! If I was, strongly influenced, to increase my cache placement numbers I would definitely just choose a ton of LPC's
  11. Needed: Android Smartphone Geocacher !

    Well duh, who uses anything other than an iPhone? PS: I'm amused you posted your encouragement from an iPad...
  12. Tarpon 140

    I think he gave great advice about "pushing to/from the beach", because forget weight for a moment...I know some y'all guys who are thick, but it's all muscle. You can't garentee who's writing in their experience has huge guns & can torpedo their yak just on strength alone VS the guy who hibernates on a couch for a hobby but lives next to water & wants to occasionally fish/bird/take photographs...aka: not travel 0.1 to 0.1 for caches for hours on end. I know it sucks to be patient, but Demo Days at Austin Kayak is every spring...& I just checked you can physically get in one & make your own opinions. ...just sayin'. Not everyone can have "marathon arms"
  13. Silent Auction Items Needed

    Can you give an example of items that have been auctioned off in previous years?
  14. Denied Cache

    I glanced at your location & where are you attempting people to park? Just pull over on the road? Across at the gas station & walk across? In order to get my Kemah bridge geocache published I had to show A) safe place to park underneath, B ) Stress not a park & grab to prevent people from parking on a busy bridge at the apex & grabbing it, (PR really said this is what people could do!) C)Provided links that show this bridge is used for running groups for that purpose. In all honesty, if I'm driving along a highway & want/need a cache in another state I'm going to choose a cache that is easy to park near, (rest stop), or consider if it has a lot of favorite points/TB Hotel.
  15. Angleton bans PED's while driing

    That is very interesting. I was told that in Austin you can only use your phone at a stop sign/light, (hearsay, no sites!). I've never relied on Siri as much as that weekend...
