    I plan to sleep in my own bed and then drive the 5 miles or so to the park

    Virginia specifically bans geocaches on VDOT property which generally includes rest areas, not to mention signs, guard rails, etc. It's a misdemeanor to place, hunt, etc. caches on such property.

    Android Wheryougo Tip
    Found this in another forum and thought I'd pass it along. Seems I've been doing things the hard way.
     
    Thought this might be of some interest to those who use Android phones 
      c:geo Did you know?
    There is a nice and easy way to play Wherigo-Caches if you use c:geo together with WhereYouGo:
    Just open the Wherigo cache in c:geo and select Navigate - WhereYouGo. This will open WhereYouGo and automatically start the download of the cartridge file and you can start playing it.
    Note:
    After installation of WhereYouGo you need to start it once and enter your username and password for the app being able to login to the website and load the cartridge.

    Did a little informal send/receive test, and I was able to receive a reply via the message feature.

    I wish I could take credit for Special Tools as it's one of my all time favorites, but alas I cannot.
  6. Team Troglodyte added a post in a topic Harbor Cam Cache - Galveston   

     
    My semi-educated guess is that it would be archived rather than adopted. Other grandfathered caches i.e. virtuals are not generally adoptable.
  7. Team Troglodyte added a post in a topic Anyone interested in adopting an old "classic" originally placed in 2004?   

    If I still was in the area, I'd be happy to adopt it. It was the first time I ever came across that type of puzzle but then Sig J/Team J came up with some pretty creative hides.

    If you're using DeLorme's Topo USA, it will accept input from a handheld GPS. Just click the "GPS" tap and "Start GPS."  My first experiences using GPS technology when traveling was with a "blind" DeLorme GPS receiver feeding the (then current) Topo software running on a laptop on the passenger seat of my car. That predated caching by several years and so was using the degraded version of the GPS signals but it was still adequate for highway navigation..

    You can filter at the PQ level for an area, or if you've already go the PQ, then you can filter as HC suggests.

    geocheck..org Hacked
    Details at the geocheck.org website.  As suggested, might not be a bad idea to change your geocaching.com password if the two are shared.

    After thinking about SockPuppet's question, I decided to see how many caches within 50 miles of downtown Fredericksburg exist that have been unfound for at least two years, and came up with a grand total of four (or five if you count one that's currently disabled).  Keeping up with that group shouldn't be a huge challenge.

    He'll probably be too busy creating one for the Hill Country.  On the other hand, I haven't found a really good forum to post anything like that out here.  Maybe TFP needs to start a franchise.

    We're Outta Here Too
    Sneaky Spyder and I have defected to the Hill Country as well.  We had our "stuff" delivered yesterday so I guess we're now officially Kerrville residents.  I keep expecting to see an "outta here" post from HC too.  As for the moving part, I'll give a strong endorsement for Adams Moving (North American) out of Conroe - they did an excellent job at a reasonable price.
     
    We will both miss all the great caching friends we have made in the Houston area over the years and if any of you are heading to the area for a visit, be sure to look us up.

    Go for it.  Since I'll be leaving the area before too long, I doubt I'll be placing any more around here.
