Making a mob cache

I have a new sort of cache I'm calling a mob cache. No, it's not a mob event - it's a mob cache. It's a good sort of cache to have released before/at an event. It requires you to get a certain number of people together with smart phones together at the same location, before the coordinates (or messa...

Re: Intercaching

The GeoGearHeads podcast is the only one I did. There were a couple articles on itsnotaboutthenumbers.com prior to that. So far most of them seem to be favorably reviewed, many receiving a good portion of favorite points. That could be though because they are new and different. We'll see how they ar...

Re: Someone lost a BIT Cache at Mingo??

I saw that too. I thought perhaps somebody that uses this site was leaving their "calling card" to indicate that they were there, because they were unable to sign the cemented cache. I've seen a lot of this in Nashville, where caches were missing, people left their calling card where they thought th...

Re: Uploading my Geocaches into Opencaches

Crosslisting is mostly pointless. When terracaching mostly prohibited cross listing, I thought it was stupid as it would prevent growth. Then Garmin came along to make cross listing easy, and I changed my mind. Yes, it does allow for growth of the site quickly, but it makes the site more irrelevant ...

Re: How was GeoWoodstock?

Yes, hot it was!

We didn't stay long, as one of our main goals was to get 12 cache types that day, which we did (plus a waymark, benchmark, and challenge - making 15 icons in all!)

Re: Letterboxing

I'm not so sure I ever "joined" LBNA, as there are no restrictions for non-account holders to look at clues, and of course there's no logging. If I did join, I've long since forgotten my original username and password. AQ I joined in 2005, and have the low member number of 1,235. I have 24 finds, a...

Re: Garmin bought Opencaching.com

I didn't even realize they had a forum. I would have posted a response in the thread you started, but that dang site wouldn't keep me logged in. I would enter my info 5 or 6 times before it would take. Then the next page I clicked on, I was logged out. Absolute crap. Yeah, something real screwy wit...

Re: Terracaching.com shutting down December 31st!!

Nothing against them, but I hardly think they are going to be missed in most places. Never really caught on except in a few pockets.

Re: Garmin bought Opencaching.com

However, I think it is rather despicable they chose an existing site name. I haven't a clue what they were thinking here ... why use opencaching when there are a number of other sites already using that name? It's not part of the same opencaching.* set of sites, is it? Very weird. Plus their logo l...

Re: Garmin bought Opencaching.com

This doesn't mean anything, but I just have a gut feeling Garmin isn't going to go through with this, and take on the 500 Lb. Gorilla that is GC.com. The whole thing could just be a negotiation ploy to get Groundspeak to create Chirp caches or something. I've been wrong about many things many times...
