Caching Name

  • Geocaching.com

    Hey, 12 miles from my hometown. I'll definitely be there.
  2. I'm outa here

    Sorry to see you go. You will be missed.
  3. BBQBob2 Clementi - RIP

    I was really shocked and saddened to hear of Bob's passing. Always a fun guy to be around. I always enjoyed his meet and greet event in the parking lot of the Stafford center for the Hot Sauce Festival. I'm thinking about posting a meet and greet there Sep. 20 in his memory.
  4. Marijuana Fields Growing in Cullinan Park

    I was just out caching in Cullinan Park 2 weeks ago. The news said the sheriff had been watching the spot for a while. They must have been watching when I was out there. So far I haven't had a knock at the door. LOL.
  5. I saw it announced on channel 11 Saturday afternoon at 5 pm.
  6. I just saw the program myself. Bob Phillips operates out of the Austin/Hill Country area, so I imagine it will be a cacher from that area. However, I may be pleasantly surprised.
  7. Geo-tour app?

  8. How to Get to Addicks Reservoir

    There have been some problems with break-ins at the parking lot off the I-10 feeder even though the constables do patrol the area. The parking lot off Memorial is probably better. Lots more people there.
  9. A & M GEAR Geocoin

    I also got my 2nd coin today. Unfortunately it arrived while I was at the 3G Galleria event so I couldn't take it along. Heavy duty and very nice.

    I personally am not in favor of GBP. I would go for some small towns in the area. They appreciate us being there. After all we spend our money in those towns. Houston would probably not even know we exist. I agree with BB, the reps from Brenham were very enthusiastic about us considering them. Just my two cents worth.
  11. Roll Call! Who's going and when?

    I'll be driving up Thursday and camping at Buescher SP. Buckee's at 8:00 pm Friday sounds good to me.
  12. New Geocaching Family :)

    Welcome to the club of psychos who like to use multi-million government satellites to find Tupperware in the woods. Being in the Katy area you have many opportunities for caching. May I suggest George Bush Park, Bear Creek Park and chefkimmo's wonderful series in Paul Rushing Park just north of Katy. Good luck, and I hope to bump into you guys out there.
  13. Story behind the caching name?

    Really simple: 34 years as a locomotive engineer with Union Pacific Railroad. I starting using uptrain as a company e-mail address and just kept it.
  14. SETX Hunt Team T shirts 2014

    I love the design. I think it would look good on either grey or black. Either one is OK with me.
  15. A & M GEAR Geocoin

    I got mine in the mail yesterday. Nice coin. I'm looking forward to seeing what the 12 month coin looks like.
