Personally I wish Fear and Caching in Las Vegas GCJCE1 was gone as it sits close to my house on the map but not anywhere close in reality. :knuppel2:

We need to team up and go find that one.

I thought you went with us when we found Fear and Caching in Las Vegas..wow that was FOREVER ago!  I know there was a group..yeah, I know..ya'll are saying 'what the hell is Zephyr doing on here, we thought she was dead!'.  LOL  And I don't recall the cords being off, but the puzzle was tough and took some doing...<blonde moment, yes, GB park is nowhere near us and the start point coords>  LMAO

 

So who's still group caching and when's the next 'outing'?!  :)

I have the reverse situation.....a puzzle in the Woodlands where the actual/final coords and container are a couple blocks from my house.....17 miles away. Personally, I like the 2-mile limitation they put on bogus vs. actual coords for puzzles nowadays. If we have to put up with puzzles at all, that is.... :)  Of course, I've run into a multi or two (won't mention any names) that made the 17-mile puzzle differential look like around the corner stuff... ;)

Juleed, Mustard Devil and I went out for No Late Fees today.  DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS ONE!!  It's not there and the only thing you'll find are Africanized bees that will chase you out of the woods and to your car.

I was stung at least 6 times in the head and neck.  Juleed and Mustard Devil both stung a few times, but I got the worst of it.

And I cant begin to tell about my worst sting( actually I could but would NEVER hear the end of it from this bunch!)

Hope you all recover from this real fast. These types of bees are one of our greatest concerns when caching.

thatdarndane got a 4th stinger out of the back of my head for me this afternoon while caching in Baytown.  I knew there had to be one in there, but MD and JD couldn't find it yesterday.  I think I'm going to place a call to the county and city tomorrow morning and have the bees checked out.

Looking over this list and I see three areas that house the most caches. 

 

Greater Katy Area - Lots of puzzles seems like the new blood out there needs to go look for these.

Clear Lake Area - A nice grouping of caches

Lake Jackson/Angleton area - Lots and lots of traditionals.  Seems like a small group of cachers should get together and make a run on these way down there.  This would gut 1/3 off the list alone.

Clear Lake area ones attempted:

 

No Late Fee's GCRGJ1  - is now disabled by PR.  This is my bee sting cache... it's not there.  Three of us searched for a good while and read the logs.  It's missing and CO stopped caching.

 

FTFC # 83 A Remorseful Cache GC2M9WF - attempted while too hot out and the salt marsh mossies bloodthirsty.  I'm going back for this one this fall to try a different approach, although there are quite a few downed trees after the drought and since it was found last.  Would love a confirmation that it's still there before I go back.

Let me know when you go for FTFC#83, Jacob and I might be game

 

sounds good.  ian was eating the mossies as we ran back that evening.  of course, it was spur of the moment decision to attack it.

It's a bit discouraging to see such a long list that we can't do too much to help out with since we've found most of the caches already a long time ago.   I notice that a lot of the caches are in the Angleton area.  My daytime caching group used to go down to the Angleton/Lake Jackson area on about a monthly basis.  The area was very active back then, but I think the area has just about died and the caches are not being maintained and new ones aren't going out, so it's going to be hard to get anyone to go clear the ones in that area out knowing that they would probably be going down there for nothing.  It would really be nice to have more cachers that haven't been around long enough to have already done the caches on the list go after them and either find them or add to the DNFs and get enough DNFs on the caches to get Prime Reviewer's attention.   Maybe there needs to be a little friendly competition one month to see who can get the most off of the list.

I didn't do a November update since I was hospitalized at the time, so more caches than usual got added to the list.  But, yeah, it keeps growing.  Come January, I may make changes again.  The good new is, of the 36 caches added to the list, only 5 had more than 2 DNF's -- many had none at all.

 

If I went to a list of caches not found in 3 years or more, it would cut the current list down to only 22 caches.  If I actively filtered out caches with tons of DNF's, that would help too.  I could also only go out 25 or 30 miles from downtown instead of the current 50 miles.  That would get rid of a lot of those Angleton area caches.  What to do, what to do....
