Re: New Benchmark cache type

I think it's all about the photos. ;) YES! Two or three good photos (one or two for structures like lighthouses or domes) and good coordinates should be all that is needed. Although the other details are nice https://www.ngs.noaa.gov/marks/descriptors.shtml#photos CLOSE-UP: highlight stamping with ...

Re: New Benchmark cache type

I decided to try a listing of my own. This one is an USGS mark but not listed in the NGS database. http://www.opencaching.us/viewcache.php?cacheid=2651 I'm experimenting with a table to display the info, it's designed around NGS and couple be adopted for other marks (i.e. Canadian) or there could be...

Re: New Benchmark cache type

Well, even if things did not go as planned, I came up with a few new ideas. We can just call them virtuals for now. :D No problems. ;) It would be nice to hear some input on my newest listings.... the BM Virtual thingies. :roll: Maybe someone viewed them? :o I think they look great - interesting lo...

Re: New Benchmark cache type

My Facebook post had no replies (although that FB group has not had a single post in months aside from the one I posted). in the mean while I just keep finding benchmarks and getting photos and info. Like you I am looking forward to the cache type become a reality, but I also know that after I creat...

Record FTF find time for OCNA-only cache?

So Ontario picked up a new active OCNA cacher last month, in the London area (where former OpenCaching Canada admin CoffeePeddlers is from). He quickly took FTF on a couple lonely OCNA cache hides and also attempted to grab one of my traveling caches which as it turns out is missing (it's also a tra...

Re: Cache Sizes - Feedback Sought

Scanning the code is probably more likely to be used by someone not familiar with OCNA and BITs and may be the first time they become aware of OCNA Right, and that is worth something. the first BIT I placed was purposefully set to be very visible.

Re: Cache Sizes - Feedback Sought

I guess I confused them with Munzee and compared them with nanos that are log only crap. :? So nothing would be wrong with attaching one to a small cache, like taping them inside a dry box or an altoids tin then? Please don't cram one into a nano. If a cache is small enough to be swallowed, it shou...

Re: User name change.

I think the "Urban Legend of Opie" is a sad story about a southerner named Manny who knows how to hide caches in great locations. But his evil twin Opie comes along about once each year and archives them all. Leaving poor Manny to start all over again, slowly creating new and interesting listings. Y...

Re: User name change.

Manville, I see your new signature is "Stealth not required". With your name change and all, I can;t help but think of this guy: http://www.notaboutthenumbers.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/stealthrtox.jpg Here's one of the last emails I had with him, which obviously didn't go anywhere: 7 May 2013 H...
