  1. JustKeely added a post in a topic New Years Resolutions Caching Style   

    Well, I made little progress on my goals 1-4, but we did accomplish #5 (finding Potters Pond cache in Utah, as well as 9 other oldies in the western states and TX).  My goal #4 was for SETX to win the golden ammo can at the Challenge, but I think getting the silver was okay in my book.  
     
    My goal for this coming year is to reach 4000 finds, and to clear out some more of my closest unfound caches.  We're down to EIGHT pages of caches within 3 miles of our house, which means we found two pages worth since the beginning of the year, but still have a ways to go!

    It really depends on how the group or Captain wants to do things, but basically the captain would be responsible for sharing the information from the local planning committee and TXGA with the members of their team.  This means making sure everyone knows the rules, etc.  They will be the point of contact and also be responsible for getting the waypoints to everyone's GPS units/phones etc.
    Also, they should help organize the tech crew/headquarters group to make a plan for getting the waypoints distributed in the most efficient manner, engage some puzzle help, potentially work up some kind of strategy or inspiration, organize team colors/shirts or whatever, plan meetings ahead of the Challenge to discuss what to expect, etc.  These aren't mandatory responsibilities, and it depends on what the goal of the team and the captain are how much effort might go into these things.

    I found a TB today that has been missing for five years.  It left Arizona, got moved to Houston, was held briefly by Zephyr01 and then sunshot99, who "passed it over to another Scout Troop from San Antonio to take to a Ball game at Enchanted Rock Park. "
    I found it in a cache at Inks Lake State Park - no idea how and where it has been but it is back in play now!  That's fun!

    LOL when isn't there?  Last year was the absolute WORST for "rules infringement"!  
     
    If anyone has ties with the SETX Gang, maybe we should ask them if anybody from their group wants to be captain this year.
  5. JustKeely added a post in a topic 2015 TXGA Challenge in Lubbock - March   

    Something to start thinking about - we'll need a team captain and support crew, maybe some new and old faces. Team Four Paw won't be able to help out on the Geek Squad, one of the few Challenges he has missed. We'll both be out this year, due to it being a few weeks from the due date of a new baby.

    I know who it was....I got sent a picture!  But if SockPuppet wants to build suspense, then I should just let him have that.  CS: probably too far north for you to have met them, and possibly before your caching time, but...think of some original cachers from the early days...
  7. JustKeely added a post in a topic Hey! Where are all the pics from Geocoin Fest ?   

    I didn't get any funny pictures.  I took some photos of interesting coins.  I thought the most interesting were the ones inspired by the first coins used in America (VOC and Dutch Riders) and a few of the oldest geocoins (Moun10Bike coins).  I also took a series of dorky travel bug pictures.  Perhaps I can post them later, but none of them are really general interest kind of photos, I think?

    I don't know if I like where this conversation is going...
  9. JustKeely added a post in a topic Oldest Caches   

    The map legend lists them in alphabetical order, which is not correlated with the age rank of the caches.  But at least it gives you a sense of where they are. 
  10. JustKeely added a post in a topic Oldest Caches   

    Here is a map version of the 100 oldest caches.
     
    After this last vacation of ours, I am up to 23 total found off this list.  Here is a list of the ones I have found so far, in order of earliest date placed:
     
    Mingo, GC12, Beaver Cache, GC16, Camels Prairie Stash, Two Roads, Eggcellent, Tarryall, Marooned, GC19, Lake Lanier, Potters Pond, Tombstone, Paul Barclay Stash, Firestone, Iron Horse (WA), Lowell aka Second Mass, Camera Cache, Pony Express, Un-Original Stash, Texas Double, Clover Spring Stash, CenTex Prime.

  12. JustKeely added a post in a topic Scorecards from 2014   

    In case you haven't noticed the calendar update, I will be passing out scorecards at this event: GC56NG0.  It won't be the first, last, or only opportunity to grab them.  We'll try to host a restaurant event this summer and attend some of the other events going on, and we'll bring the cards with us each time.

    Scorecards from 2014
    I have them!  I will give them out at upcoming events.  We are going to try to make the flash mob at Hermann Park the weekend after this.  I can also post an event soon to hand them out.
     
    I am missing about 10 of them, though.  
     
    I went through all the scorecards and compared to see what happened with the scores.  It is a long list, but it essentially boils down to some caches were punched correctly and not counted on many scorecards, there were multiple math errors, and in a a couple of cases, it looked like a punch issue.  I made a list of what everyone's scores should have been, and then did a new average.  Our team's score was 264.

  14. JustKeely added a post in a topic PSA Kissing Beetle Disease   

    Interestingly enough, this particular beetle has given us a great boon where I work.  Our major competitors have had to deal with this bug and the disease it causes, but we don't because our building is different and we've been able to keep them out.  It could result in us gaining a higher market share in the coming months.  I can't explain a whole lot more on here due to security reasons, but some of you know what I do, and if not, ask me next time you see me.  My kids and I have talked about it, the youngest child was completely freaked out, but I explained that it really only affects people at night and when they sleep on the ground.  So naturally then he asks me if we were going to stop camping because of it, lol.
  15. JustKeely added a post in a topic We Rock! Challenge Score Information   

    I know they are working on ideas for how to make the scoring more accurate.  TravelingGeek has been working on it, with a few others from different regions.  It would involve going to a different system for "punching" and reading the scorecard.
