Ever heard the Gummi Bear song? Maybe tomorrow the site will be playing the Garmi Bear song. :roll:

They're really toying with us, huh?

Currently there is a topic on GC.com's Geocaching Topics forum about opencaching.com. The moderator mentioned he would not close the thread if it stayed on topic and did not move it to promotion of another site. TheAlabamaRambler posted that many might get opencaching.us mixed up with opencaching.com and he made ours a link. Be interesting to see if that exposes us to more traffic and if they let the link stand.

A little off topic, but that is a perfect example of GC's double-standards.

I hope the OC.us link stays.

Going international. This is what they have today:
Bald auch unter einem Baumstumpf in deiner Nähe:
Kostenlos, offen, in deiner Sprache!

Translation:
Soon under a tree trunk in your area:
Free, open, in your language!

Lamp post hides not allowed? :lol:

Can't believe I forgot to post this here, yesterday. I shared with most other caching forums, I'm on.

I can't make out much on this, but...
