    A little guy I found while caching!

    You can keep reminding me Bert - I appreciate it.

    My $0.02:  Sometimes I disable a cache (so cachers won't go looking for a missing cache) and real life gets in the way and I can't get out there in a reasonable amount of time.  About 50 % of the time the cache is still there when I get a chance to go look at it, so I am glad I didn't archive it prematurely.  However, I am completely ok with a nudge from my fellow cachers to make sure I make a decision one way or the other.  If I want to keep it going, I will do so.  If I've been putting it off or forgotten about the maintenance, I am fine with opening up more room for others to place caches.
     
    The last thing I want is PR making the call.  Whoever that is, they can be like pi, or e, or radical 2........

    You can ride a bike no problem.  There is an underpass from the parking south of I10.

    I'm pretty sure PR (Brent) doesn't like me very much!

    My first snake of the year.  About 3 - 4 feet long.  North George Bush Park.

    Warning - Hiking in GBP behind gun range

    Warning - I would not recommend chasing this cache while the gun range is open. I was hiking along the trail and was about 400 feet from the cache when I heard a zip and then a crash in the woods in front of me. I wasn't sure that it was a bullet until I heard another pop from the range and then another zip and crash into the woods. I immediately turned around and heard round number three hit. It turns out a rifle round makes a pretty distinctive whizzing zipping noise when it goes by you. Most likely some sort of deflection from the rifle range, but nonetheless a bit unsettling! I thought all I had to worry about in the park was feral hogs, bobcats, snakes, and critters!
     
    I have hiked along this trail a few times and never had any issues, but I wouldn't hike beyond the short part of the gun range (after the 50 yd range.  I would say the probabilities of any issues is low, but I know I would rather be safe than sorry!

    I usually keep them for 1-3 months depending on mission, where I am traveling, etc.  Also, I try to make sure I put them in a "safe" cache as I do not want the TBs or coins to go missing, and that usually takes a bit of time.  Also, I don't mind when I receive a note from a TB owner asking me to move it along, sometimes I forget how long I have it.

    I'd be happy to help with the cache placement.  This part of the park is not bad at all, especially in the winter.  There are a few trails, lots of open, high grass fields, and some undergrowth in the woods. It's my favorite part of the park, and I spend a lot of time there.  I was planning on adding some puzzles to the area but I'll hold off until this gets decided.  I think a redo would be fun!
  13. FamilieRyan added a post in a topic Which kind of hider are you?   

    I am a type A or B. Sometimes puzzles make them a bit more complicated
  14. FamilieRyan added a post in a topic Is FTFC dead?   



    Yes - I would never do anything to the trophy without agreement from the owner(s). We probably do need to add another layer to the trophy (like the Stanley Cup) so we can keep adding names to it.

    We need the trophy actually come out if we want to change it. I was thinking we could send the original trophy, with all of the names on it (updated of course) to Grounspeak so they could have it in their TB collection. We could then start another trophy. In any case, we need the current one out in the wild again. It's been 2 months and the current holder has been not that responsive....
