I just did spinowners 15 stage "Who wants to be a $1.20-aire". It was very fun, and more fun because Ko-tis-vey was also competing (actually, beating the crap out of me) for FTF.

But as I was doing a few of the "Maximum Exposure"-style stages, the thought crossed my mine that if any cacher happened to see me or my MnGCA-bumper sticker, they could skip a whole bunch of the stages.

If you are worried about this, make the coords of the last cache dependant upon facts about some or all of the earlier caches.

P.S. Please don't post your new one until *next* weekend. I'm too beat to go after another maxi-multi so soon. Smile

Crud, and I thought I was done trying out the light rail.

Sounds like fun though, will have to get a group together for that one soon.

Oh @#$%$. And just last week the girls and I took and adventure day. We parked at ridgedale and took the bus down town and then the LTR and bus to the MOA. The LTR was fine, but the bus sucked. I would love do the ltr series with a group, but not if I have to take the bus down town again. Laughing

P.S. my computer is out for repair, not that you missed me. Should be back soon.

The lightrail sounds fun! Can you imagine an entire car full of geocachers running in and out of the rail cars while trying to find the caches?

Just imagine the conductor's confusion at watching a dozen + people staring at small electronic devices and then making a mad dash out the door when they get near the goal.....

ANNOY (V.O.): Next stop, Queensboro Plaza.

KRAMER: Oh, Queensboro Plaza. (reties his shoelaces) This stop is famous for its gyros, you want one?

ELAINE: How are you gonna get something and get back on the train in time?

KRAMER: Well, they got a stand right out on the platform. Gyros are cooked, and wrapped, and ready to go. (he pulls money from his pocket) Three dollars, no change. You want one?

ELAINE: (laughing) No thanks.

KRAMER: Alright, but no bites.

Kramer goes to the door, where he stands jostling with a couple of other guys waiting for it to open. When it does, they all exit in a hurry. Elaine continues to study the TV Guide. A guy sitting opposite (bald, glasses, anorak inside and out) proffers a pen.

RICKY: Highlighter?

ELAINE: Excuse me?

RICKY: To highlight the programmes you plan to watch.

ELAINE: Ah. Uh, look really (looks about to try and avoid contact) I'm just trying to read.

RICKY: Fine, okay. It's just, I've never seen a beautiful lady reading 'the Guide' so far away from a TV. You must really like television.

The train about to leave, the doors begin to close. As they do, Kramer tries to enter. The door closes, trapping his arm at the shoulder, leaving him holding his gyro into the carriage.

KRAMER: (yells) Elaine!

A passenger walking down the carriage grabs the gyro from Kramer's hand and sits down to eat it. Kramer extracts his arm and the doors slam closed.

RICKY: Guess your boyfriend'll have to catch the next train.

ELAINE: He's not my boyfriend.

RICKY: He's not? (thoughtful) Interesting.
