  1. You will be sad if you miss the CITO in Baytown next Sunday April 24th, it is a water CITO but you can also CITO on the land as well. We will be giving a CITO GeoCoin and some new caches will be published soon as well. So sign up for the event for some fun as well. GC6FAH1
  2. Today I received the email below: "Regarding GC57EAP: My Beautiful Bride Hey! So I'm in Baytown. I used the compass for you "beautiful bride" and it's leading me to a truck!!! I don't want to dig in anyone's truck... Am I doing something wrong?" This cache is a LPC I messaged back the cacher to lift the skirt and then they posted they found the cache, their first cache. Welcome to the game I thought. LOL
  3. Besides the wonderful CLAPS and cedar bayou series in baytown, what are some kayaking caches in the area?

  7. We just got in our first pathtags, we had Texas Dreamweaver design them and they look even better in person. He did an OUTSTANDING JOB throughout the whole design process and helped me with any questions throughout i will try and attach a picture, but Gary AKA Texas DreamWeaver did an amazing job, I would highly recommend
  8. Today HQ posted that their is a one year moratorium on any new challenge caches I posted below what is on Geocaching.com Challenge Cache Submissions Moratorium Beginning April 21, 2015, a one-year moratorium is in effect on all new "challenge cache" submissions. It does not impact previously published challenge cache listings. Why is a moratorium needed? Challenge caches encourage cachers to set and achieve fun goals. They run the gamut from finding caches on every day of the calendar year to finding one for every Difficult/Terrain combination. However, there are many aspects of challenge caches that can make them frustrating for the community. They are neither a separate cache type nor do they have a specific attribute, so the logging requirements are easily misunderstood. Challenge caches can also be very difficult to publish due to the large amount of subjectivity involved relative to other geocaches. While they account for only ~1% of all geocache submissions, challenge caches comprise the bulk of appeals made to Geocaching HQ. In order to properly evaluate and fully focus on the challenge cache system, it is necessary to have a period of time that is free of new submissions. What happens during the moratorium? HQ will work with the community and Community Volunteer Reviewers to address shortcomings in the current system, with the goal of adding clarity and retaining what makes challenge caches so much fun for players. The process starts with you. Visit the User Insights forum to tell us what you like and don't like about challenge caches currently. We'll use your feedback to create a survey that will be available later this spring. Once we've gathered data from the community, we'll get to work on building a better framework for challenge caches. In the meantime, the thousands of challenge caches that already exist will still be out there, waiting for you to find them! Note: The moratorium does not apply to challenge cache submissions that were enabled for review as of 12:00pm (19:00 GMT) on April 21, 2015 and met all geocaching guidelines at that time.
  9. I have really wanted to go as well, my question is "Is the block party kid friendly?
  10. Well this is a fun TB rescue story. I went and found GC2x9n3 today a puzzle cache called BB 1000 cache Finds by Houston Control well I find the cache which had been replaced from the original cache back in 2012. I read a previous log that Trea had found the cache but it was full of water and log couldn't be signed, well the cache I found the log had never been wet and was in great condition. So I looked around a few more minutes and I found a lock and lock container that was full of water. I dumped it out and the wife noticed there was a trackable in it, this trackable. It was attached to a key chain and a tape measure but they were all rusted. The trackable is rusted a little the wife cleaned it up and we put it in a baggy. It can travel the world once again. The TB page is TB46ZCQ
  11. I just submitted a 7 cache Archery series, named after archery terms just outside the Baytown city limits. They range in size from micro to small to 3 regular containers. I also submitted 1 in Highlands today as well. Many more caches to come
