  • Snoogan's Snug'uns GCMP0E - last found on 4/1/06 by PPRubens with 4 DNF's since.  I recently talked to the cache owner who assures me that this cache is still in place.

This one's been disabled and is being moved

Good job, WTT-B2 and Kirbydox. O0 

I prevented Movie Mania from making it to the list in a couple of months by finding it yesterday.

Congrats, HC! I've been working away on Movie Mania for a while. There are a couple of those movies that I just can't place but I'll get there eventually.  :)

We went out last week to find:

Cypress Creek Walk #4 GCG4YZ - last found on 9/17/06 by kokopellitoki and cpadgett13.

It's not there for sure.  They're plowing a new road to the creek for a new neighborhood and there was construction equipment everywhere.  We logged all this in our DNF.  Anyway, after consulting some pictures from past logs and after a 30 minute search at GZ (and expanding outward) it's only a matter of time before Spaceman Spiff archives it (he hasn't been too active lately.)

February Update:

Since the last update, 5 caches on the list were found, 4 were temporarily disabled, 1 was archived, and 8 more were added to the list.  As of January 31st, there were 29 active caches within a 50 mile radius of downtown Houston that have not been found in over 12 months (two of which haven't been found in over 2 years!).  They are:

  • Trog's Travels GCGY0H - last found on 1/4/06 by JimmyEv.
  • ANCITW #5 GCND8M - last found on 1/14/06 by PPRubens, went one DNF since.
  • Far Side GCM9JV - last found on 2/5/06 by GrangerFam.
  • Rustic Country Home GCP90Y - last found on 2/12/06 by bilster.
  • Swamp Treasure GCT8JV - last found 5/21/06 by Monkey's Uncle.
  • Mlaapum mlaapum to GCG8R1 - last found on 6/2/06 by Sadinga with four DNF's since.  This one is most likely missing.
  • Pearl Lake GCJ4PC - last found on 7/3/06 by GrangerFam with a recent DNF by Team Tulip, who reports that the cache is "definitely gone". 
  • Boggy Bayou Basin GCKAGH - last found on 7/8/06 by GrangerFam.
  • Jack's Pocket Cache (aka Mudfrog's Nemesis) GCGQPM - last found on 8/6/06 by ComicBookCacher.  This cache has had exactly 2 finds in the 4 years since it has been placed.  Mudfrog reports that it may be missing.
  • Trees of Oak Lake GCRRVM - last found on 9/2/06 by nitemonster.
  • Doggie Paddle Island GCNRM1 - last found on 9/3/06 by KingwoodGeo.
  • Little Johnny's Sight GCT47K - last found on 9/10/06 by Muddy Buddies.
  • Cypress Creek Walk #4 GCG4YZ - last found on 9/17/06 by kokopellitoki and cpadgett13, with 3 DNF's since.  OSC reports it to be a goner for certain.
  • Keep It Constant GCTP04 - last found on 9/28/06 by HoustonControl with six DNF's since.  I went back to the area a couple of weeks ago and couldn't find it.
  • Timbergrove Manor GCRWDF - last found on 10/15/06 with 5 DNF's since.
  • BELLAIRE CHRISTMAS CACHE GCHDPJ - last found on 10/29/06 by stcymcc with 5 DNF's since.  I was the last to try for this one a few weeks ago.  Depending on the cache container and accuracy of the coords, I guess it's possible it could still be in there somewhere amongst the bamboo.
  • King Kong Lives! GCTMBR - last found on 11/18/06 by Team Blacklist.
  • The Bitter End GCHGY7 - was last found on 11/26/06 by MAES with one DNF since.  Team Cull reports that this cache has, indeed, met it's bitter end.
  • Where? GCZRR8 - was last found on 12/21/06 by Woodpicker, Mudfrog, BizzyB, tuba_dude, and Ribbitz.
  • Cedar Hill on Charlotte GCNXBH - was last found on 12/24/06 by CacheCow_Queen with 2 DNF's since.
  • Pelican P** Island GCY42F - was last (and first) found on 12/27/06 by MooseTrainer.  Only one find in the 16 months since the cache was published!
  • Armand Bayou GC11EE - was last found on 1/1/07 by zepfam with two DNF's since.
  • Lil Johnny the Quartermaster GCM39N - was last found on 1/5/07 by Sharpbiker.
  • Working Title GCXZ2R - was last found on 1/7/07 by GrangerFam with two DNF's since.
  • Duck Hunter's Cache GC212F - was last found on 1/13/07 by TeamZZ.
  • the lone ranger GCW3BH - was last found on 1/19/07 by The Popeteers.
  • OVERDUE GCH97J - was last found on 1/28/07 by Pepper.
  • Time's a Wastin' GCMA2X - was last found on 1/28/07 by GrangerFam.
  • Crazy Ivan's Rescue Call GCT47M - was last found on 1/29/07 by WTT-B2.

Now off the list:

  • Sidney Sherman GCM7YT was found on January 20th by WTT-B2, 18 months since the last find.  Way to go Barry!
  • The Adventure's Mysterious Treasue Cache GCV7MM was found January 12th by Kribydox after a 15 month lull.  Good job!
  • Decimal Degrees GCWJB0 was found January 3rd by Kirbydox and January 5th by MedTexPlacer.  Congrats, folks!
  • ECMBC GCW7ZR was found on January 3rd by Kirbydox.  She is turning into a one woman, longest-since-last-found, wrecking crew!!!
  • The Old Woman GCWWPE was found on January 18th by, who else, Kirbydox!

Other changes since the last update:

Snoogan's Snug'uns GCMP0E has been temporarily disabled for maintenance.

Foster Went to School GCQ51K has been temporarily disable by Prime Reviewer.  It is most likely MIA.

raising the dead GCM0VA has been temporarily disabled.

Magnolia Tree GC1A61 has been temporarily disabled by Prime Reviewer.  This one is also probably missing, which is a shame since it is one of the oldest caches in our area.

Hole in One GCQBY6 has been archived.

An "Honorable Mention" goes out to Whippettx and Fendmar who found Piman's 12 Degrees cache on 1/12/08, exactly one year to the day since it was last found.  Good job!

Kirbydox is having fun being the longest not found wrecking crew.  I think she's using this list as her challenge list.  Way to go.

They are fun to find! It's too bad that so many people don't like Puzzle and Multi Caches because a lot of these are pretty easy. I always learn something new and there is usually a pretty nice cache at the end of the trail.

The Old Woman GCWWPEThe Adventure's Mysterious Treasue Cache GCV7MM and Decimal Degrees GCWJB0 were NO BUSHWACKING. You can't get much better than that.

Well, I knocked #1 off the list today.  I found Trog's Travels GCGY0H - 25 months after it's last activity.  The cache was in great shape.!

I wasn't so lucky with #2 on the list -- ANCITW #5 GCND8M.  That's some thick brush in there!

I cached all day and found 2 caches.  I also worked on 1000 Ways to Get Skammed, but have work left to do on that one...

Way to go HC.  O0

Thanks.

Anybody know what kind of bird this is?  I found it on the trail to the Trogs cache.  I think it is (was) some kind of hawk.

It might be a Red-Shouldered Hawk.

Thanks for finding the cache that I was planning on putting out.  I didn't remember where I had dropped it.

I had a travel bug dog tag with me and I thought about attaching to his foot and dropping it in the Trog's Travels cache.  But if it isn't found again for another 2+ years, the next finder might not appreciate that! :o

I'm going to go to get Tennesseeflyboys cache called "Raleigh Bear" tomorrow. It hasn't been found since January of last year. He had it archived and unarchived yesterday.

Did you get coords for the bird?  MAybe WTT-B2 can go get it and perform his "other" hobby on it, and make it into a travel bug.  ;)

  Oooo, Oooo!  Let me!!!!  :D :D :D

I'm not sure TPB (Mrs. TFP) has quite forgiven me for the last time I did that.  Even though the picture was only up for about 4 nanoseconds....

The hawk was probable 14-16 inches, beak to tailfeathers.  I flipped it over and got a picture of the top side too that I can post later.  I feel certain it is a Red-Shouldered Hawk, after seeing the picture on the globalraptors site.
