Re: Loveland Area Caches Gone

There are no "active" alternative cachers in my area - closest active location really is Buffalo NY (the "home" of OCNA HQ, been there!). But there were a number of what I'll call high caliber cachers who hid a number of quality caches around 2009-2011 on OCNA and TC. And because they were quality a...

Re: Loveland Area Caches Gone

MPH, do you have facts and figures to back up your statements about stale data on OCNA or are you just making assumption? My DNF rate on OCNA pretty low. Just because the cache is old, just because it's never been found or hasn't been found in a long time, and just because the CO has become inactive...

Reviving archived G$ virtual caches

Cross-posting this to a number of forums and facebook groups, since they seem to each have their own cluster of users (also because at best I might get two responses from each of those forums) If you see this more than once – great! Well done, you are a well-rounded multi-website-using-geocacher! Ea...

Re: Couple minor things

Hold off longer if you can still get the multiple things done at once, if that saves any time money or frustration. I just brought it up to keep it on the horizon, but really there's no rush. Winter's a good way away still and listing benchmarks seems like a good task to put off until winter. Thanks...

Couple minor things

So I saw the recent FB post about OCNA hotspots and in the process of trying to figure out how many OCNA caches are in Ontario, found a minor things but will bring them up all the same When you do a cache search, you can select to hide inactive caches. What is an inactive cache? there is nothing on ...

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. But if GC implements such a system, 65% of the player...

Re: Pokémon Go

I am very curious to know how the PG game compares to Monster Cache - not in terms of quality or development, but in terms of concept. when I learned of PG I immediately thought of monster cache. I know nothing about either and have no plans to change that. It just doesn't appeal to me. Manville, wh...

Hank the Hawk letterboxing stamp

I needed an image to test out a new stamp carving material and decided to try carving Hank the Hawk (it's been on my to-do list anyway). This is the first inking of this stamp and it still needs a fair bit of work before I'll consider it complete. BTW the stamp is 1.75" is diameter, a bit on the sma...

Re: Like Minds

Personally I have no issues with using a combined travel bug / moving cache. If you are eating in a restaurant and stand up and declare that the establishment next store is a better choice because [free food, high-quality food, more food, less distance-between food, larger servings, less customers, ...

Coffee Peddlers lonely caches...1 down, 2 to go

Coffee Peddlers placed three caches around London in 2011. None of the three have even been logged on OCNA. I finally stopped by to find one on Christmas Eve. being the skeptic that I am, I had no expectations that the cache would be there. from the listing I could guess that the cache was located o...
