Now, enough said - CACHE ON!
Thanks for the clarification REALBug. Being #1 means people will get after you. It is human nature. Being human myself, I took a look at the last 19 (all virtual) caches you placed. CCCA had 12 first finds and 4 second finds on those caches. There are MANY explanations for this. One is that they call you to create a virtual when they need/want a find.
CCCooperAgency in not a Charter Member. They chose not to
help out the folks that made it possible to log a 1000 on the web.
After finding this out I made my archived site members only, so they
can't keep logging it.
End of Rant
Here is a rant from me about geocaching.
Well it is more about a cacher, CCCooperAgency
This cacher in very poor taste in my oppinion
made a virual cache just to log their 1000 find.
A 1000 my foot. They or he or whatever don't go
the caches they log out of town.
Case and point.
They logged my virual
Picketts Mill from Penn. That cause me to change the cache so
the answer could not be found on the internet. Later I deleted there find.
Then they logged again with this comment.
I have a printed out version of all 1,000 caches found AND approved since 5/25/01. This cache was JUST deleted within past 24 hrs (5/28/02) by SOMEONE. I will forgive 1 mistake - ANY further will be reported to Jeremy.
At this point I archived it with this log.
this site was being logged by non visitors, and the place was not open for
visitors except on weekends in the summer mouths, best to just close it
down in the best interest of geo cachers over all. thanks
I have not been happy with this virual at all, and this was
all I needed to archived it. The straw that broke the camels back.
It an't over yet. They logged it again today:
CACHE OWNER APPROVED our find 2/22/02. Log was deleted 3 months AFTER it was APPROVED/GEOCACHING ADM has been notified. Sorry that this action had to be taken but right is right.
this after I archived it.
More later I sure.
PS I deleted it again.
lesson for today
If a dog were your teacher, you would learn stuff like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When it�s in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they�ve invaded your territory.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you�re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you�re scolded, don�t buy into the guilt thing and pout.... run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
Stop when you have had enough.
Never pretend to be something you�re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
And finally, never trust anyone until you sniff their butt.
Called my best friend today to look this page over, not for content. But the layout, colors, and how it looks, and works ect. Can't wait to hear her comments.
If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that
electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models
deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?
Ever wonder about those people who spend $2.00 a piece on those little
bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backwards: Naive
Isn't making a smoking section in a restaurant like making a peeing section
in a swimming pool?
So if the Jacksonville Jaguars are known as the "Jags" and the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers are known as the "Bucs", what does that make the Tennessee Titans?
If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea. does that mean that one enjoys it?
If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called
Why do we say something is out of whack? What's a whack?
Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?
If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?
If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren't they just stale bread to
When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?
Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?
Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?
Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety one?
Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?
What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?
Whatever happened to Preparations A through G?
Was planing to go on the "Up the Creek without a Pedal" bicycle ride at Rome today, but the weather
was a little ify. So I went to the Silver Comet about mid morning. It was real cool and a lot windy.
I rode from Rockmart to Hiram and back. Had a tail wind going out, but pay for it on the way back
with a head wind. I am riding a lot more than caching now trying to get ready for Brag. (Bicycle Ride Across Georgia) I'm a little behind what I was this time last year, I think I will be in shape by June.
Me and Bob went bicycle today. We had a midday toco break near The Bike Shop.
Then rode anothe hour or more. In all we rode near 40 miles. Nice day of riding.
Hilarious joke I read today
Leaving Montreal, I decided to stop at one of those rest
areas on the side of the road.
I go into the washroom. The first stall is taken, so I go into
the second stall. I had just sat down when I hear a voice
from the other stall............
Hi there, how is it going?
Okay, I am not the type to strike up conversations with
strangers in washrooms sitting on a toilet. I didn't
know what to say, so finally I say:
Then the voice says: So, what are you doing?
I am starting to find this a bit weird, but I say: -
Well, I'm going back east...............
Then I hear the person, all flustered, say:
Look, I'll call you back--every time I ask you a question
this idiot in the next stall keeps answering me!!!
Today I pay a visit to Mtn-Mans new cache at Newtown. Looking at the logs it seemed that it was
taking some cachers a little time to find it. I read Charlie P log and with his clue in mind I walked
right to it. Thanks Charlie.
Friday April 5, 2002
Boy I had a busy week. Nothing to add to my found list, but I
added 2 to my hidden list. The latest was put out Wed. this week.
I will have it posted by Saturday morning.
Thursday April 4, 2002
I have found a few more caches. One that was fun was up the road a ways.
I went to it because I read in the logs that a few folks were not
finding it. On March 26th I made a first visit to
(Breifcase full of Blues)by Mtn. Man. It was a rainy day but
It was a fun find.
On April 2nd I put out a new one with a challenge
(Raccoon Creek Challenge)
It goes like this
This Challenge is by Johnnie, So named because I made it as hard as I
could. It has no view, no land mark, nothing special, just woods. It is not
buried or in a stump hole or anything like that, so you don't have to be
poking in the ground. Please leave it as near like you found it as possible.
We want the next person to have fun too. It has nothing in it , but a mini
log, No trinkets. If spending over a hour hunting a cache, or not finding
one at all could cause you stress, then this one may not be for you.
Here is the deal. Find it if you can, sign the mini log, and log it here. After
a month or two I will go get the mini log. I will put the first ten logs (if
there is that many) in a drawing for First, Second, Third place prizes.
There will be no advantage in being first to find it, but there will be a big
advantage to be in the first ten. Then if there is more than ten logs I will
put all of them in the next drawing for forth through tenth place prizes. I
will notify the winners by their Geocaching email address
1st prize A used Lap Top Computer
2nd prize GGA Baseball Jersey
3th prize GGA T-Shirt
4th prize GGA mug
5th prize GGA Tile Coaster
6th Prize Geocaching Compass Keychain
7th Prize A Gold Dollar
8th Prize A Gold Dollar
9th Prize A Gold Dollar
10th Prize A Gold Dollar
Am I nuts? Probably
Ok thats all you get!!! That right no hints!!!
There is a little more to it than that. I won't give to much away
here, but when you get to the cords all you find in a rock with some
new cords on it. The next stop the hard one. I look forward to see
how it turns out. The first person found it today.
March 16, 2002
OK so I have slacked off a little. I am not going to as many
caches as I was. I am still caching, but I have gone back to the
pick and choose like I did in the begining. I had rather go to
one that shows me some interesting place, and has a good hike
with views ect. I was doing some of the drive by caches in
town for a while when I was trying to run up my number to a hundred.
I did one that I look at the direction and distant from the drivers
seat of my car and lefted the GPS on the dash, hopped out and
walked stright to the cache, logged it and was back in the car 5 minutes
later. Don't take me wrong, I think the drive bys have a place
in the caching world. I put out one
(Pickett's Mill Virtual Cache)that you don't have to get out of
the car to find it. It does put you at a State Historic Site.
List of all my hidden cache's.
But I have got a little tried of the drive bys
for the time being. I did run my number up high enough to
be 4th in the state of Ga. for a week or two.
You can see the caches
found by me here.
Now that March
is here I started doing some harder caches. Hard but a lot more
rewarding for me.
On the 14th of March I found one of the best I've been
to yet. It is in the North Georgia Mountains near Helen, Ga.
It was a two and a half mile hike one way. The views were
out standing. It is called
Nacoochee's Revenge (Yonah Mountain)
