Posted by Iron Chef on July 14 2001,12:46 pmI'm here ;~P
Posted by Buxley on July 19 2001,6:28 amI'm here too! I'm just quiet. Shhhhhh....
I did a fun cache up in San Francisco last Sunday called "SF Sunset". Even though, looking at the hint, I knew where the cache was (in theory) it took me a good ten minutes to locate the cache. A very tricky cache placement! =) Nice location for a cache too!
Posted by Iron Chef on July 22 2001,2:00 amI did a fun cache last sunday too called "E is for Expedition" and man was it cold! ;~) burrrrrrr! hehehee. Kinda caught me off guard, what with the non-stop fog and wind. I would have hated to have been in Portola's group of men having to rough it up that hill.
Posted by dwr50 on Aug. 04 2001,11:17 pmI'm in Roswell, New Mexico now. I'll be in Deming, New Mexico next month. Parker, Arizona 1 Oct. and remain there for the winter. I'm planting 5 caches in the Parker area, difficulty levels 1-5. I'll be homebased at the level 1 cache and hope to meet some "Geocacher's" and make some new friends.
Posted by Road Kill on Aug. 06 2001,6:59 pmHey Phoenix AZ! I'll be going through 2nd week in September. Any tips on a easy cache or two near Sun City? I'm also headed north to Flagstaff for a day with 3 days in Grand Canyon. I'm in the market for something I can take some relatives to as a demonstration for geocaching.
UpDate - I was there and started the Hare & Tortoise Race. (See Hitch hiker forum) My cousins had a good time as well with their first and 2nd caching experiences.

Posted by Buxley on Aug. 15 2001,10:48 amI'm in northern California near San Jose -- not too far from Iron Chef. In fact, I've got one of his engraved spoons from a cache. :)
If you liked the 'E' is for Expedition cache, go for the 'F' is for Faultline cache I just placed. It has a lot less climbing but still has a great view. The drive might be a bit farther though -- it's 35 miles east of San Luis Obispo!
Posted by Iron Chef on Aug. 19 2001,12:22 pmBuxley, I was actually thinking of hitting your new cache on the way home from a short vacation in San Diego. I'm just guessing that it is accessible from the 101 (I havent really figured out directions yet since i cant go for another month)? But it looks like fun :~)
Posted by GeoRockers on Mar. 16 2002,2:12 amAhhhh.... California Caching... where else could you go caching in the river, ocean, fog, rain, snow, and... oh yes, sunshine, all within the same day!
Mother Nature will even throw in a few earth quakes, forest fires, and mud slides, just to make it more of a challenge!

This brings up a good point...what happens if you place a cache and then a earth quake moves it a few feet or dumps it in a crack...do you just raise the difficulty? or go back out and take another reading and resubmit the new coordinates?

Has anyone thought about the long-term issues with this game? Like how we're going to account for continental drift? ;-)

If it's more than 30' deep, make it a 5/5!
Special road construction equipment required...!

Yeah, earthquakes. We had one here in Descanso (East San Diego County) on Saturday AM at 5:45. Scared the parakeet and woke up the cat. Guess I’m getting used to them though, there is that moment when you just sit there waiting for it to go away or get serious.
Posted by Choberiba on July 28 2002,10:23 pmI think it depends on the person.
Kablooey keeps complaining about earthquakes in the 2.5-2.9 range and I've never felt anything under a 3.5
It may be a bad sign that I can talk about quakes with such accuracy, but really they feel like a large truck just drove past.... The big ones frighten us all, but the news reporters need to eat too so here we stay.
I've long wanted to hunt epicenters with my GPS, but I never seem to remember to check the USGS site after a tiny rumble.
