Re: Loveland Area Caches Gone

Well, I finally took the long drive and went to find the rare podcast, deadrop and other caches put out by Memfis Mafia. I had a very difficult time with them and when I emailed the CO , he said he removed them but never archived them. Next day all the caches were gone and he removed his user accou...

Re: Reviving archived G$ virtual caches

I think it is great that you can bring an old virtual back to life on other sites. I also have no issues with a different CO listing the same location on another site whether the first listing is archived or not. Each could take a slightly differing point of view on the same subject directing atten...

Re: Reviving archived G$ virtual caches

I meant that the Waymarking site has already spoiled most GS virtuals that require an answer, and I don't see any harm recreating a similar listing for OCNA. I posted my find log to one of TermiteHunters virtuals yesterday that I visited while on vacation. I stopped by for the GS traditional cache a...

Re: Reviving archived G$ virtual caches

DG famously brought back A weary traveler revived in D.C. Woohoo, I was FTF, baby. :o And if I'm not mistaken, he brought it back within a week or two of the owner archiving it on Geocaching.com. I'm certain he contacted them and told them, not so sure he got a response. But he can answer that. I t...

Re: Reviving archived G$ virtual caches

I'm guessing that there are no archived Groundspeak virtuals that are not already listed as a Waymark. I see no reason to not list them here as a virtual cache type.

Re: Pokémon Go

There is a geocaching site with a points system, it nicely shows you your ranking in relation to geocache types and location. The longer a cache is unfound, the more points it's worth. Pretty neat system IMO. Guess how well it is doing right now. That sounds a lot like what Ranger Fox was telling m...

Re: Pokémon Go

Wow, Pokémon Go has been good for their business. I had lunch with the founder of the Wherigo Foundation after doing a little geocaching in the area with him and he asked me what I thought about a type of points system with the Wherigo cartridges, which sounded to me like it may get more people inte...

Re: Pokémon Go

Here is an interesting article on Pokemon GO with Geocaching co-founder Bryan Roth. Maybe Ground$peak has plans for Wherigo after all and not just abandoning it like their Waymarking site? We here are all aware that many people do want a virtual element to geocaching and some really like a point sco...

Re: Pokémon Go

Ranger Fox is the founder of the Wherigo Foundation, and I do believe he is the only one keeping Groundspeak's Wherigo site going. Those are a fun cache type. I created one and have played 4 or so. They are just not many in my area. I used my FakeGPS app to narrow down 2 reverse WIG's from home. :) ...

Re: Pokémon Go

I have no freaking clue what to do at the Gyms. I can battle, but the creature will have a CP of like 600-1000, and all mine are under 100. I also went to a Blue Gym (I choose team Blue), but no clue what to do there either. Keep one of each type, transfer the others in trade for candy to the profe...
