  1. Challenge Caches coming back with changes

    Yes I noticed the subtle threat that if there are too many problems/complaints/reviewer protests the challenges will cease to be allowed.
  2. Challenge Caches coming back with changes

    This makes me sad, even though I guess I see their point. I really wanted to see a new icon just for the ease of searching for or excluding challenge caches in a search. Sure, it's not that difficult now but it would sure be nice to be able to look at a map and easily see where a cluster of challenge caches are. "What’s Not Changing (for now) The idea of a challenge cache icon or attribute earned significant support from the community. We agree there are a lot of good reasons to implement one. However, we want to confirm that the new framework will reduce the problems which led to the moratorium. It wouldn’t make sense to engineer a new icon or attribute only to lose it if challenge caches don’t work out. We’re going to give it a year or so, and then re-evaluate the situation. If we find that things are going well, then we will strongly consider adding a new icon or attribute for challenge caches"
  3. Do you have a good explanation?

    Don't forget to mention to LEO's - they get free premium membership! From geocaching.com: "Official representatives of parks, land management organizations and law enforcement agencies are eligible for a free Premium Membership. With the premium member status, you are able to identify geocaches currently placed in your region, receivenotifications when new geocaches in your area are placed, and communicate with the geocachers who are playing in your area.

  4. My 1k

    I love doing Drew8's caches for milestones. They are always so well thought out. My favorite is Plundering the Treasure of Captain Drew. It's not an instant gratification cache but the journey is awesome.
  5. It looks like it is this cache: GCQAMK Buffalo Barker
  6. He'ssss Baaaackkkkkkkk

    Can't wait to see you again, Don! It's been a while. We're glad you're coming back for a visit!!!!
  7. Garmin 64 series v4.00 Firmware Update Out

    I use this option for loading and I've not had the problem of disappearing events. I tried it again today and everything worked just fine. I HAVE NOT done the firmware update yet. No time yet for this. One other problem that Rich & Lola (and I think HC has too) have had that I haven't is the Share Wirelessly problem that sometimes the cache sent would show up and sometimes it wouldn't. It just seems that the Share Wirelessly is a little flaky at times.
  8. 2katz is a Granny!

    Congrats to the new granny and parents! What a great Christmas present!!
  9. Running Up the Numbers

    No kidding. I was surprised that by the end of the day Amber was huddled in the back back seat under a blanket looking like she'd just finished a marathon or three. It was a long caching day but it wasn't that bad! I'd forgotten we stopped and took that picture. It was a fun day.
  10. The obligatory Congratulations thread

    Congrats, tuba_dude! Congratulations to Baytown Bert for logging his 6,000th cache on the Lone Star State series yesterday in W.G. Jones Forest!
  11. Boson

    Yes he died a while ago.
  12. The New Guy

    Welcome! Hope to see you on the trails or at an event soon. If you continue on your streak I would suggest NOT caching out the area around home completely. It's nice to save some of those for those terrible, horrible, no good, verybad days when you need a cache but don't feel like driving 20 miles for the nearest one.
  13. Rite-In-The-Rain InkJet Paper

    Thanks for the info. We went from a laser printer to an ink jet and HATE the ink jet. It is always running out of one of the inks just when I need to print something and it's a pain to change the cartridges.Scott has said several times he wants to get another laser printer so this was very timely and I have RITR paper already that needs a laser printer.
