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...

Re: Are Challenges Challenging You?

On the one hand, I'd like to hide some of the less common cache types, like quiz and unknowns and maybe even a dead-drop or MP3. With the new challenges I was determined it was time to add these to my stats. yesterday I placed 3 new caches out . And then I remembered why I stick to traditionals (for...

Re: Like Minds

Any movement yet with your travelers? Of the three I created, only one has been released. i dropped it off at a large geocaching event (as a groundspeak trackable) and it was picked up and later dropped into a groundspeak cache. That was over a month ago. As an aside, the trackable tags I'm using ar...

Re: Milestones - Share Yours Here

Congratulations to Dudley Grunt on his 200th OCNA listing (I was looking at your Back to the Future event and noticed that you wrote "My 200th created OCNA cache!" - wish I could attend BTW) DG holds the top spot for the number of active created caches (127 according to the User Ranking by Number of...

Re: The OpenCaching NA 5th Anniversary Contest

Because I like statistics...here are some numbers from the contest. But first the preamble: I pulled these numbers from the "Latest caches" and "Latest Logs" and they may be somewhat incomplete.Also, for the "logs", I wasn't able to pull out the log type or cache type, so it will be a bit less usefu...

Re: The OpenCaching NA 5th Anniversary Contest

Well that sure was a fun way to spend a month! I managed to create 40 caches (10 types, 35 are OCNA-only, in 5 provinces and 2 states) and found 15 OCNA caches (8 types) plus 5 OC.de safari caches. In regards to the entry form, I noticed that there's no entry for Hide an Unknown Cache so I put my on...

Re: No more opencaching.com

Shutting down the brokencaching site might just be the best move Garmin has made in a while. Think about how much web traffic that probably generated as everyone just had to see what has happened to the site nobody was using. They should have put up a discount code for 10% off an new Oregon 650, pro...

Re: The OpenCaching NA 5th Anniversary Contest

Hey, just noticed that letterbox hybrids are left out of the contest. Was that an oversight? If we do find or hide any, can they be submitted for points? Also, just a website note to the admin. If you visit the homepage for OCNA, and click "Upcoming Events" you get a list of upcoming events (that is...

Re: The OpenCaching NA 5th Anniversary Contest

Since we are close to the halfway mark in the OCNA 5th anniversary contest, I thought I would take a look at the numbers of caches hidden and published so far since August 1st. this is based on the list of caches in the “New Geocaches” list: Number of OCNA members who placed a cache: 14 Cache types ...

Re: The OpenCaching NA 5th Anniversary Contest

Thanks Mr.Yuck and the rest of the OCNA admins for putting this together. No small task, I would imaging. I'm hoping to complete as many of the tasks as possible. With few OCNA hides this side of the border (other than the ones I own), finding the required caches might be tough. Anyone else have any...
