Re: Opie is now out of the picture

I drop in there once in a while but too often. It's largely useless information, imo. Just a handful of users bickering back and forth over opinion.

Re: Opie is now out of the picture

Tried to view your cache but was blocked by the paywall. Mr.Yuck and Termite Hunter will be in the same boat. I found New York states oldest geocache a couple years ago. Found a OCNA moving cache along the way and it was more fun to find that the oldest cache. Why? I had no doubts that the Spot cach...

Re: Opie is now out of the picture

If I go to http://www.opencaching.com right now, I get nothing. An invalid URL page. As opposed to a page saying opencaching.com has shut down, and giving a link to Geocaching.com. Hmm, is the URL available to buy? Mixed feelings about that. Not sure what the relationship is now with garmin and gro...

Re: Did I set the OCNA Lonely cache record?

New York Admin spammer?

Can the admin please take a look at this user New York Admin Registered Since: 03/02/2017 http://opencaching.us/viewprofile.php?userid=15935 Besides the fact that the user name is similar / same (?) as a geocaching.com reviewer (I think), and I have no belief whatsoever that it is the same person. N...

Re: New Benchmark cache type

last summer on a "remote beach" (okay, a 1/2 mile hike or so) we found a rock, wasn't painted but had a bunch of words written on it with a sharpie. Basically invited people to take photos of where they found the rock and share on Instagram. I didn't since I don't use Instagram but seemed like a nea...

Re: New Benchmark cache type

Okay I thought you were kidding about painted rocks except now it's coming up in some facebook groups I'm a member of - camping related groups. And now there are FB groups dedicated to this: "Here's two Facebook groups, RVing Rocks, and Rock the Parks. For the painting rocks. Paint then, hide them, ...

Re: New Benchmark cache type

Hey Mr.Yuck, so glad to hear that the surgery went well and that you're home resting. I know this it's been on the radar for a while. Only a couple weeks off work??? I was off for 7 weeks after surgery on my foot, I assume a hip takes a bit longer to heal up that a foot does. Take it easy.

Not found in the NGS DataExplorer but maybe in DSWorld (I will check la...

Re: New Benchmark cache type

Ahhh, I've got benchmarks on the brain... case in point: I'm on the website walking4fun.com entering my "mileage" from a few short hikes this past weekend. That website allows you to "hike virtually" through a number of trails such as the Appalachian and the Pacific rim. I'm "hiking" the C&O Canal /...
