Spirit Quest prefix

What other states use the "_SQ" prefix? ("_" indicating state letter and SQ standing for Spirit Quest) For instance, My first virtual cache for OC is WSQ Chief Oshkosh in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Around here, we attach the prefix to any cache that is in or near a cemetery. I want to say it started out in...

Pathtags

Not really trackable, but not sure where else this would fit. Anybody collect them? Anybody ever get one of their own made? I'd like to get my own, but it's hard to justify spending $100 on something I'm just going to give away.

Who ye be? And where ya from?

Since this region covers a few different states, I thought I'd start a thread for everybody to introduce themselves. I'm glorkar and I'm from the Oshkosh/Berlin area of Wisconsin. The nickname goes back to my childhood. I used to sketch and draw a lot. One day I drew a little alien-type thing and na...

Re: Once the H8ing starts I'm out!

I agree that hateful comments have no place here. Not that you can prevent it, though. The vibe I get is that this isn't a replacement for Geocaching.com per say. It is merely an alternative. After all, all of us started geocaching from Groundspeak's site. We have them to thank for getting us into t...

Wild life...

Been encountering quite a bit of it up close and personal lately. The other day there was a bat in my bathroom (guess it didn't see the "h"!) a morning dove near ground zero that looked incredibly fake but turned out to be real, a squirrel at ground zero staring me down from about 6 feet away, and t...

Re: Why Opencaching?

I'd heard of Opencaching before from searching for groundspeak alternatives. When a post was made in the local forum that there was one in the works for the US, I decided to check it out. I'm all for competition. It forces everybody to work harder to be better. No coasting :) That, and I've always w...

Re: Owner Notifications?

Two of my caches were found yesterday, and I don't believe I got any sort of email of the logs.

Smoking ban

Wisconsin recently passed regulation so it is illegal to smoke inside all public buildings. Went out to the bar for the first time after it was enacted and I must say, it was strange to be able to see the band without a haze :D It's pretty bad though, because that particular bar doesn't have any sor...
