How do I get a pocket query to actually go into my pocket?

Why is (new locationless (reverese) cache) a option for instant notification?
since they are no more.

Where do these intelligent geocachers come up with the questions they did. Am I the only one laughing? Seriously, have any of you ever thought about stand-up comedy?

My fav was why do feet smell and noses run. That's kind of like why do you park in a driveway and drive in a parkway. Or if a door can be be ajar, can a window be a spoon?

WHERE DID SIGNAL GET HIS NAME:"When developing the Geocaching.com web site, we realized that representing GPS technology as a device would ultimately mirror an existing design of one GPS unit manufacturer (Garmin, Magellan, Trimble, etc.). And considering the constant changes in the designs of GPS receivers - and their inevitable integration into existing devices like cell phones - we wanted a creative solution to represent the technology without locking ourselves into a design that would soon be obsolete.

We decided a fun way to represent GPS technology would be to give it a personality, so we decided on Signal the Frog. He's not very bright but he knows where he is and can point you in the direction you want to go. He's your GPS guide."

Well, and because a green frog is cute...

HOW MUCH DOES THE GROUNDSPEAK BUILDING WEIGH?
Are you planning on stealing it like a giant trackable or trade it for something? I doubt it will fit in your caching pack... mine on the other hand.. you may have a chance.

How many caches could a cacher cache if a cacher could cache caches?

I've seen cachers claim to find 200-300 in a day, so the number is probably endless depending on if you sign the log, fake the log, cheat and find caches from the recliner while eating Cheetos... too many variables.

Why didn't Bob's Big Board of Caches become popular as GC.com did?

I have no idea who Bob is... next question.

Where do all the former BOD members go after their terms???? They seem to fall off the side of the earth after they're done? They are abducted by the lakeys and run on giant hamster wheels at the varying in weight building of Groundspeak to keep the computers running. They are usually never seen again. Shocked

There I did my civil duty and answered page 1. My question, when are they going to change their page from booger green to something else - I am tired of looking at it and it makes my husband pick his nose when he looks at it. I'm just sayin

I'm still on earth. I don't use a computer often outside of work and work started blocking this site and the wga site is not easy to interact with on the iPhone.

Actually, this is really a legitimate question. That attribute does not refer to the old locationless caches from years ago. This is new technology, where someone builds a box that is hidden in one place, but will only open in another location. The other location is determined by the finder by either a puzzle or some other electronic circuitry in the box. Because this is very unusual, a special attribute for these is required.

This intrigues me, it sounds very interesting. Any out there in Wisconsin that you are aware of?

What is a "real" question as opposed to a "virtual" one?

I don't believe so. I'm also not finding the attribute anymore, but could swear it was added to the system. The two I have heard about are in Europe. I'd suggest asking on geocaching.com forums if you are interested in building one.

Thanks, it kind of sounds like a hybrid chirp/virtual/and gosh knows what else cache.

What do they eat to maintain that high energy?
Are they specially breed for this type of work?
How often do they have to be "replaced"?

They eat blood
They are regular hampsters

Are the hampsters made of ham?
