Y'all sound a LOT better!

Shout out to TattooBarbie!

I know plenty of people who are in the "If I can't find it then it ain't there" category. I'm in the "If I can't find it, I'm frustrated, but that doesn't mean it isn't here" category. I've seen many seasoned cachers miss stuff. I miss stuff. I missed one yesterday that I ended of getting only because of Phone a Friend. It was pretty obvious after I saw it. Of course they're all easy after you have found them.

Great show!

I can understand how frustrating it can be when you can't find a cache and it gets under your skin. I have found the perfect solution add it to your ignore list and it disappears, I forget about it and get on with enjoying the geolife.

Also, there is another way that you can get a list of all your caches that need maintenance. Click on the hide a cache form and it will give you a list of all the caches that need maintenance before you are allowed to go on and submit a new one.

Regarding that difficulty 5 cache: I find it very revealing that of the five finders, one of them is the cache owner! That's enough to put it on one's ignore list. Too goofy!!

There are only two kinds of caches of mine that I will find. Events and Challenges. And I darn sure won't claim FTF on either.

Speaking of which, and maybe this could be a show topic, do people in your area claim FTF for an event? That rarely happens in my area.

I had the pleasure of meeting TattooBarbie this past weekend at an event in Austin. We had crossed paths at an Electric Water Boy event, the last flash mob, but had not actually met until now. I enjoyed the article and the video about her, thanks for sharing it with us!

BTW, does anyone know the GC for the cache discussed at the beginning of the show... the one published in 2011 that has only a few finds?

I love the surprise of the cacher taking his wife skydiving. I have been twice and my wife has had it on her bucket list. I took her indoor skydiving for valentines day but it was not the same. So I surprised her with a gift certificate for a tandem skydive and the full video package. I bought it and just had it sent to her e-mail and did not say anything. She read the e-mail and is so excited to go. I would jump more but it is just a little to costly.

Glad to hear you guys are feeling better.

I have seen a lot of new cache owners log their own cache accidentally when they meant to log a note or main log.

Reply with quote


given the information in the show, we know that the cache was a 5.0/1.5 traditional cache published in december of 2011. This can be used to search for caches with Project-gc.com:

project-gc link

A total of 15 caches matches the criterias. We also know that the listener was foxgallagher, and according to her profile stats on the same site:

http://project-gc.com/Profile/ProfileStats?profile_name=foxgallagher&getprofile=Get+profile

we can se that she is probably located in michigan (cache centroid N 43 20.591 W 83 44.701 which is in Frankenmuth, Mi).

Since there is only one cache in the first list located in michigan, and that cache is only 11km from foxgallaghers cache centroid (and it has 68 DNFs and 5 finds) I'm willing to bet my GPSr that it is the cache mentioned in the show.

Wow - that's some great detective work!

By the way, I changed the link to make it shorter (to fix the wide-screen problem)
