[CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: Flight of the Phoenix (GCWQ88) will not be approved... :-(
Speaking for Terracaching ... I have seen several posts about it in the last little while so I went and checked it out. There are relatively few caches in this area (well, compared to geocaching.com anyway) but they look interesting. I signed up and now need sponsors. I am new pretty new to Geocaching as well and have only met a couple of you. I was looking for a way to list Terracaching members hoping to see a way to correllate them with members here but I could not find what I was looking for. Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

Hey, Barry. Submit it to TerraCaching. com Many of the party's
attendees have both a membership at Terracaching. com and at
Geocaching.com and it will allow those of us who liked the cache to
make it an official find -- at least on Terracaching. There's also
enough of us to sponser new members to Terracaching. com that would
like to log it as well.
I wouldn't want you and your family's hard work and creative story to
get squashed because some folks are trying to stick out their chests.
(There seems to be a bit of a pattern of passive aggression toward
Texas geocachers lately -- specifically Central Texas geocachers.
We are fortunate to have an alternate choice.

No banners. No pop-ups. No kidding.
