  1. Snake ID

    Here's one we came across at Village Creek State Park last Friday. I couldn't get the camera out in time to get his head but i did get most of his body. This is probably the third time we've ran across a coral snake out in the wild.

    That was pretty cool! Ended up clicking a few more links and found this. Homemade rocket fuel This guy has some interesting stuff to watch...
  3. Final coordinates for geowyz's 23-SUR

    Well, i had printed out the cache page and wrote coordinates on it. The strange part is, i had two sets of coordinates wrote down. Not sure why. Even so, i thought for sure one of them were the correct ones but have been told that neither are right. My memory is terrible so i certainly can't remember where the final was. Oh well,,,
  4. The coordinates were not for me as I found the cache years ago. geowyz has been working overseas for quite some time and caching overseas. He didn't have access to the computer with the final coordinates. I was trying to help a cacher from Canada that was here for a short time. WP3 was missing and it contained the final. He found an old cache and I am not sure it was even the right one as it wasn't an ammo can which was what I remembered.

  5. Final coordinates for geowyz's 23-SUR

    Two things going against me here, i normally don't like to give out info without a CO's consent and, i kinda hate "propping up" caches when their owners quit caching. On the other hand, the final on this one is an ammocan and may still be out there to be found. Seems kind of a shame for it to be sitting there forgotten. I have the coordinates and can pm them to you if you still need them,
  6. Oldest caches in Houston area

    Kinda funny how that works.
  7. Oldest caches in Houston area

    I am on the side that a cache shouldn't be replaced unless you get permission from the original owner. In this case, at appears the original owner no longer caches and doesn't care. It looks like the hint on the cache page tells you right where it was supposed to be so i guess you could "prop" up the listing by replacing. I realize the geocaching community can keep a cache going this way but imo, we shouldn't. Old or not, its owner doesn't care. It won't be the cache that the original owner placed some 12 years ago. It's ok to let listings like this be archived. If the area is nice, a new cache can be placed by someone who can maintain it properly.
  8. Running Up the Numbers

    Hi wowieann, There's nothing to be embarrassed about. I run against the geocaching grain but i wanted to add something for thought. For me, my 10 year anniversary would be better off finding one really good cache. There are some awesome ones out there that will provide great memories that will last. I know that most everyone is out for numbers these days but honestly, getting them so fast where everything is a blur, may not be what you're looking for. Otherwise, others have posted some good ideas for numbers acquisition above. I would add that going along with good friends or family make these more fun and memorable.
  9. Oldest caches in Houston area

    That was our 12th cache to get a longgggg time ago. It was originally placed by Allen and Karen.
  10. Call for Pictures

    I didn't know about your Rogue's Gallery. Was definitely fun going through the pictures and seeing some faces i haven't seen in years. On Chicken and mine's picture, i thought it would be nice to update with a single picture of our whole geocaching family. Don't have your email but if you want to send, i'll get a more recent picture of Chicken, Tx Tadpole, and i to you. We were in the boat placing our Micro On An Island cache when it was taken. Glad i found out about your gallery!

    Trog doesn't know it yet but we're planning on staying in his guest bedroom...
  12. How often are your caches found?

    I have caches placed out in the boonies which sometimes go for years without being found. Our more challenging caches don't get found very often either. Then there are the couple of easy to get to, easy to find, caches at the east Texas and west Louisiana travel stops that get found almost daily. It pretty much all depends on their location and how difficult they are.
  13. Okay, puzzleheads.....

    I have\ I actually have an idea to try if i ever manage to make it up there.
  14. External GPS signal booster

    I've used my old Garmin 76 with my laptop running the Delorme mapping software. This was a few years back but it seemed to work well. Sort of a pain with cables and such but, i'm wondering if you can hook the external antenna to your gpsr then plug the gpsr into to your laptop to make it work using Mapsource or Delorme software?
  15. Okay, puzzleheads.....

    Actually, i did find this cache back in January. I'm just sandbagging now to see if i can stir up some drama. I had taken a look at the page and on GE a while back but nope, i have no earthly idea what to do from here. Would love to head north with Julee and TDD to check the area out in person but i have too many irons in the fire right now. Good luck ya'll!
