  1. You don't think you could say "I'm on a boat" literally anytime if you had that? Or it won't float? Someone had a 3 piece one on CLAPs at an event one time. Wasn't exactly like that, but same concept. Could insert extra pieces to make it a tandem.
  2. It was newly re-done in June of this year, so you can do it again.
  3. Kinda far from their home territory.
  4. This weekend we went out and did the Lake Woodlands kayak series. It was hot and I baked a little, but nice, calm waters the whole way. And really different than most anywhere else. Mixture of nice big office buildings and retail, wild and pretty undeveloped areas, and really nice houses. Some of us went and slayed the 5/5 dragon at the far end of the lake, too. And there are one or two land based ones you can easily get out to get. Some fish jumping. Lots of HUGE herons. Strange ducks I've only ever seen in The Woodlands that look like they came from the move Coraline. Was cool to venture up here and do these.
  5. Sounds like me and my son. Seems like a win-win.
  6. Hell to the yeah. That's awesome. On my Santa list. Doubtful, but will remain optimistic. Cheaper than the Ferrari that's been on my list forever.
  7. It's like virtual moving munzees, with real clan wars.
  8. So? Just let WS go first.
  9. Too bad you didn't host an event 30 min before gates open. Could have handed it off to another cacher in FL. Let me ask THIS question. Is the scout here or in Florida? If the scout is here and just wants it to travel, Dip it in each of the virtual caches you visit and you can upload photos of it at each location later. Then bring it back and put it in a cache here. Then it has double miles and some cool caches with pictures at Disney. And from there it will start moving. If the scout is there, consider UBER to an of-property cache. First ride is free on sigh-up usually up to $20 or $30 (google Uber sign-up codes if not a member). I'm sure you can find one of appropriate size that's been found recently before close enough.
  10. That's a great story, tuba_dude! Wish more encounters were like that. Of course it helps if there's a mega and a cache like Mingo, but even so, glad you remembered about the free premium membership, etc. BB - are you all actively trying to recruit some LEOs to the event? This is a cool reach-out opportunity.
  11. North is all done. There's a nice hot day for ya. South is coming out now but is not fully out yet. There is some vegetation on the south side, but none when we placed it -- at least at the cache sites. There are FTF opportunities on S CLAPS and some of the Horsepen Bayou caches right now.... Each cache page has link to info guide which has all the launch points, etc. (Spring Gulley, Big Island Slough, Bay Area Park, Clear Lake Park, and along Middlebrook Drive, which bisects Horsepen Bayou.
  12. Smaller bugs travel more often. Because they can. Just sayin'. Just something to consider in a TB race.
  13. Target has 3M self-laminating tags about the size of a small spiral notebook that you can put an info sheet in and then trim it down. You can even fold it once / crease it. Think it's a few bucks for a pack of 5. Any Fedex/Kinko's will also have a hard laminator. Think it's $1 or $2 for an 8.5x11 sheet. Much more of a PITA to trim that down, though. That said, remember, smaller is better. If your TB fits a lot of places but has this huge tag, it ain't gonna fit a lot of places so rethink that if necessary.
  14. But do you think these difficult to place locations you currently have are being lurked on that much? And, in reality, PR would get pissed that someone keeps submitting, as it will keep coming up in the queue when there is an existing cache there. That will only be tolerated so long. They send back to the submitter and after a while I presume would just archive the submission -- unless the cache is gone. I just don't imagine that strategy working very well. Not for the choo choo series.
  15. HC - I've had several I had been working on over the years have that happen. Surprised it took so long, too. Thot - The easy way for this to submit your new cache at the same location and then archive the old. Your new cache is already in queue when you archive it (even if minutes before) and any lurker will have a submission in queue after yours. Never had an issue.
