  1. Longest since last find

    Gee, thanks for the heads up.  I wonder what prompted him to archive it?
  2. Final coordinates for geowyz's 23-SUR

    I just grabbed those coords from Google Earth.  I was walking along that trail with Fendmar about, oh, 7 years ago and he pointed out the final to me.  I really could be off by hundreds of feet.
  3. Final coordinates for geowyz's 23-SUR

    OK, give or take a half mile...  
  4. Final coordinates for geowyz's 23-SUR

    I vaguely remember it being in the vicinity of N29 44.100 W095 41.400, give or take a quarter mile.  Glad I could help!
  5. We need a team captain for 2016!

    JuleeD and LifeisaHorse.  Wait, isn't Paulette the Central Texas Rep for TXGA?  And she's playing for SETX?

  7. GBP TEXAS - soda tubes on tallows

    I've had great luck with soda tubes, both as caches I've hidden and one's I've found over the years.  I'm not sure what the OP is expecting -- for the hiders to plant better trees for the caches to be hung on?  Placing traditional caches to form geoart doesn't leave a lot of leeway on where to hang them.  It's a reservoir that floods (when it isn't burning) and any hides out there that haven't been found in going on a year are likely to have a few issues.  Contact the cache owners before you head out next time and they'll probably meet you and give you some replacement containers and logs in case some need attention.

  10. How to add a picture to a GC.com email

    So this wasn't someone who could have already had your email address and sent the email directly to you?  Did the subject line say "[GEO] PlayerXYZ contacting Thot from Geocaching.com"?
