Diversified Cacher Contest Results

Thanks to all of those cachers who stepped out in many new directions during February.  I'm quite sure that most of these would have been found and/or placed regardless of this contest, but maybe some were a direct result of it.  I only had 10 forms that were turned in.  I know of a few others that said they were working on it earlier in the month, but I did not receive their entries. I'm disappointed that I didn't receive more, especially from the more local folks, but I'm going with what I've got.  Congrats to the winners.  Prize packages will be going out next week.

Many thanks to those who donated items for prizes:

New Jamberry Products

This is such an exciting time of the year!  We just finished our Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday specials and with all the sales during that weekend, Jamberry was able to give a $115,000 donation to Toys For Tots and will be making LOTS of children happy this Christmas season.  It's so great to be able to get items for yourself or as a gift and be able to do good with it at the same time!

Yesterday, we came out with two more Glow-in-the-Dark wraps for New Year's Eve. These will only be available until Dec. 31...or while supplies last.  There are 3 designs - 2 regular size and 1 Junior size (which are also great for adult pedicures).

Munzees or Micros?

I've been thinking about some of the micro geocaches I have found. Some have been placed along trails or other interesting places or cleverly hidden in other objects. I like those! Others have been placed in such exciting places as parking lots (yes, the dreaded LPC). I'm guilty of placing a few of these as well when I have as getting started, but I think I'm going to change my strategy.

I know there are plenty of geocachers that are all about the numbers and anything goes. For me, I prefer bigger containers or ones that actually take me some place more exciting than an asphalt parking lot. And if you've ever lifted up a metal skirt on a metal pole...AAARRRGGGHHH! It's like nails on a chalk board! Plus, most are so small, you can't put any trackables or anything else in them. I've done a power trail of 100 micros.  After 25 or so, it gets boring. Power trails are just not for me.  I'd rather walk a mile for one really cool cache than stop every 1/10 m…
