If you're like me and stop in here and frequently find no new postings, this is a place you can register your visit and just say, "Hi," along with anything else that is on your mind.

I'll start.  :wave  Hello!  I tend to check these forums every couple of days and am generally disappointed when I don't find anything new.

I figure that if everyone who pops in adds a reply to this thread, even if they don't have anything else to post, they'll be something to look forward to.  Even if there hasn't been another post since your last, feel free to add a new comment.

Did anyone else notice the site was down over Sunday night?

Hey, sabrefan7!  Thanks.  Does this seem like a good idea?

I did find another new post this time by yaesumofo - finally found a home.

Happy trails!

Please limit your comments in this thread to casual greetings or you may risk having your posts deleted.  If you have other things to say, please find an appropriate topic or start a new one.

Oh, btw, hello everyone!

Hello! I've gone a little longer than usual without checking these forums, I'll bet a month. I also have to cross-list a few caches, and log one on here. I'll get right on that (I hope).

Hey, there!  I'm trying to hold myself to only checking maybe twice a week, myself.

Thanks for posting.  It was nice to have something new.

Hey, all.  Popped in after the weekend saw no new posts.  I did  a couple of upcoming Maryland events to the Calendar, though.

Bump - Trying again.

Forums seem even slower than they've been before.  If you're stopping in here, not seeing anything new, and leaving.  Post a little something here and we can at least chat with each other.

I can hope.

Howdy,
A quick stop by, I wanted to make a post in "other" GPS units. I have not been geocaching lately. Too busy with travel, brewing, and wasting my time on the computer.
C-Ya,
John

Good to hear from you!  Hope you get a chance to get some caching in soon, so maybe you should get off of here and get out there.

Happy trails!

Yes, these forums seem to be a little quite. Not even the admins seem to login so often, according to their profile pages, which is kind of a problem when you try to get in contact with them.   :(

I've found the best way to get a hold of the admins (PC Medic) is to us the Contact Us link on the main page.

I've been assured that that there are many more visitors to the forums that the lack of new posts would indicate.  That's why I started this thread to offer an excuse to post and join in a conversation, even if there aren't any other new postings.  I figure that will, in turn, encourage folks to visit more often.

Now however I don't get a reply to my reply anymore. Maybe some admin also looks at the forum from time to time? *hint* :wave

Hello!  Long time lurker, first time forum, um, speaker, I guess.  I, too, get lonely on this site, so I figured I'd better join in the conversation.  I'm from Minnesota, in the Twin Cities area and I think in the whole greater metro region, there are currently 4-5 active navicachers, including me.  So I feel pretty lonely caching in the real world too.  The laid back attitude this site has applies to real world caching as well.  A navicacher placed a new cache last spring and I wanted to go for it, but just didn't have time to get to that area.  Several months later, I found it and ended up being FTF!  Three months for a FTF seems pretty leisurely.  Compare that to the "other" site, where a new cache is often found within 15 minutes after being published (around here anyway).  
So howdy, fellow navicachers!  I look forward to talking with all you.

Nice to hear, or see, someone else around here. I really appreciate to see a new post when I look here from time to time.

Speaking of real-world caching: there is exactly one navicache in the town I live in, mine. And it is the capitol of one of the US states ... The next after that seems to be active, but the only reason I know that is that it is cross-listed and gets logged over there. No log here so far (too far away to go there just for it). The next couple of caches are basically dead. They could be removed, but nobody seems to care. But enough wining.

I hope to get more navicaches around here, but I also feel that it would be better to pep up this site a bit more. And I am certainly willing to help with that. At the moment all I can do is bringing some life to the forum, so that is what I do.  :grinnin

Ouch, that's rough.  At least there are still quite a bit of active navicaches within 20-40 minutes of where I live.  Enough to keep me busy for a little while.  Maybe I'll take up Dudley's project of cleaning up abandoned caches.  

Speaking of pepping up the site, I'm taking an Information Architecture course and my class project is designing a website modeled after a real-world site that interests me.  I'm planning on coming up with a design as if I'm redoing this site, to see if I can improve the IA.  I don't know if I should share my final report with the Admins or not, they might not like the idea of someone thinking they can do better.  But it's a fun class and I think it'll be a fun project.  I'm working on a blueprint map of the existing site right now.

Welcome, Joukkusisu!  Glad to have you join us in actively participating in the forums.

I can tell it's been the better part a week or so since I logged in here, there were 8 threads with even more posts!  It's been a busy week for me and I just haven't had a chance.

Quinn - I know you and PC Medic have mentioned that you guys check on the forums more than you post, but it is good to here from you from time to time.  Thanks for your work with the site.

Just to continue this thread: how was all your weekend? I had the chance to go to a geocache event and snatch another geocache on the way home. Other than that it was mostly time with the family and work in the garden. Oh, and barbecue at home, yummy. :)

This all then didn't leave enough time to hide my second cache, but the location(s) and container are all clear and ready, I just need the time to go there and hide it.  :grinnin

What about you?
