1st find and 1st fellow geocacher on same day!

... and made my 1st find today. As I hiked out of the area = Pelham Bay Park, Orchard Beach, Hunter Island = "Fisherman's Cove", I saw someone approaching on a mountain bike. When we got close, he asked me if I made any finds and I asked him if he was a geocacher. He said he was and ...

Geocaching and Orienteering combined?

... would be about 5K (3.1 miles) or more if one has difficulty finding the hide? The only problem I foresee is what to do if another participant sees someone else accessing a hide?

Bridges, "Rock and Roll" (GC19FHX), "Handy Relief" (GC19NF1)

... Log Date: 2/29/2008 I want to know who reported this cache as illegal. Only one person has contacted me about it, and they are friendly, so someone is lying. If you are the complainer, you got two of the best caches in NY shut down. Nice move. The cache says no kids, and it has all of the ...

Military Containers and Geocaching in NYC

... containers. They're military-style, you can't see what's in them, they're printed with scary writing all over the outside, and now (apparently) someone has used one to make a bomb. If I were the NYC authorities and I found one of these planted in an urban area, I'd probably be a little freaked ...

Re: NY Admin strikes again!

That is very odd.

I don't know how many Admins there are, but I think someone approved a virtual by mistake today:

They treat these situations as humorlessly as they would someone waving a plastic gun near the presidential motorcade - which is to say with maximum response and zero risk. And so regardless of how challenging ...

Re: Central Park asks for Geocache Removal

... to the CPC, Love Bug in Central Park was erased from the face of the earth again. It's a lot of work to do that to this cache, and if it was someone from the CPC it doesn't make sense that they wouldn't reach out (given the information card, and given how the CPC handled the Ubercache). I ...

Re: old cache still alive!

Conflicts with Hidden Stages

Re: Conflicts with Hidden Stages

But, speaking as someone who has had other cachers submit new listings as a strategy to find out more about what I was up to; and as someone who has argued with the NY Admin many times over the last few years; I feel that the current ...

Re: Manhattan's Oldest Cache Revived!

... New York is so dense that what are great hiding spots in other areas - off the trail, hidden from view - become a little trickier here, because someone else might be taking advantage of the seclusion (and might also be using the good "hiding spots" for their stuff). I've started to ...

Re: But I'm not doing anything bad!

Re: Check you cache logs

But to just log a bunch of caches without following the rules is really (insert colorful metaphor here) up. I hear you. ...

Re: Fear Archived

Actually, if someone wanted to adopt it, I think the admins would be willing to unarchive the cache, isn't that the usual policy (that a cache archived by the admin can be unarchived if you ask?). I don't know what the usual policy ...
