GPS-Loaded 'Bait Car' Traps Thieves PDF Print E-mail

"The Washington Post is reporting that a late-model car, loaded with wireless surveillance gear, a remote kill switch and GPS, is being left (unlocked, presumably) on the streets of the Washington, D.C. metro area as 'bait' for car thieves. This article reports that they've just made their first bust with the vehicle."
I hope they bring "theif caching" to Arizona, since we have the highest car theft rate in the US.

There are farmers that are using GPSRs to spray fertalizers and pesticides on only exact locations of their fields that need it. Very cool... Less poision in my diet is always a good thing in my book.

WOTP: Behind the Logs PDF Print E-mail

On Tue, Feb 5th Team Snaptek sent out a message for Bob Renner that included everyone that was on the AZ-geocacheing mailing list with the exception of any address that Team "Wyle E" was subscribed with.

The message detailed a prank to be played on Team "Wyle E" involving the cache "West of the pecos" that would be placed.

I've put together a behind the scenes account of some of the people that were involved in the prank that is very funny at times and will give you a little more inforation about why and when certain logs and mailing list messages were sent and some talk about ideas that were never tried.

Unplaced Cache found PDF Print E-mail

While roaming the net today I stopped by Team "Wyle E’s" webcam and managed to find a cache before it was placed. When Mr. E was asked how to log a find on his yet to be placed cache he replied with:
"!!!!! I’m busted !!!!
This was great Brian! I got a good laugh from it. Perhaps your record for finding a cache before it's even hidden should be logged on the snaptek web. :-)"
So I am writing this article to claim my find (grin).

I added a new feature to the individual team stats. If you go to team stats and pick your team from the list you will see the new features. They export the data customized to your individual team so you can plan and keep track of the caches more easily. Let me know what ya think, have fun!

Record Breaking Month PDF Print E-mail

Seems with the cooler weather and holidays in November we have set a couple of records for caching in Arizona. There were 41 caches hidden in Arizona this November breaking the old record of 40 hidden in September. Also the number of caches searched for and logged set a new record with 744 beating the old record of 657 in September. I wonder if December will be even bigger?

100 Caches Found PDF Print E-mail
Written by Brian Cluff   
Tuesday, 09 October 2001 00:00
Team "Wyle E" is the first in arizona to break 100 caches (96 of them in arizona at the time of this writing). They did this while keeping a suprisingly low number of not found caches, probably due to incredibly high number of times they were the first person to the cache. Sometimes getting to the caches before they were officially even posted. :)
Congratulations Team Wyle E.

GPS Drawing PDF Print E-mail

Introducing GPS Drawing, you drive/move around leaving a track of where you have been leaving behind a picture drawn on top of a city street grid, big field or where ever. One person tied their GPS to their dog and ended up with pictures with very eratic lines.
OK.. this is a little on the silly side, but it does look kinda cool when overlaid on top of a map to show where you have been.
The big question is how are we supposed to get stats out of it :)
