I think we should go grab this cache next week for WNC.

Well, I piloted the Space Shuttle in Space Camp, so there's a start for you. If someone can find a Space Shuttle we can borrow, I'm game if I get to drive.

Please disregard that I crash-landed in the Pacific on my first landing attempt in Florida.

I guess it is just too easy and obvious to point out that you probably needed to go a little farther east before crashing...had you said the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic I might have been impressed, but crashing in the Pacific, you were only off by a few thousand miles! =) Note to self, don't fly in shuttle with you, yet.

It is no more a moving cache than all the caches on the surface of the earth...

As described, the cache is the locker in the station...relative to the station...the cache is stationary (no, not a play on words)...and until such time as the locker is phsically disconnected from the station...or the station burns up...the cache shall remain the locker...

But I would think that this is a moving cache as the cache is always moving.

Yes it is in the locker in the space station, but that would make the whole space station the cache. ( ie the cammo on a cache in the park is also the cache correct ) That would make the space station the camo.

I would also say that this would be the biggest cache out there.

So it has a few records going for it.

Furthest to travel.
largest.
I would say the most expencive ( to place and to get to )

I'm sure that there are alot more out there.

I'm not so sure about furthest to travel. It is only 250 miles out in space. Are there not caches here on Earth much further? Certainly the effort required to travel those measly 250 miles is a bit rigorous! Grin

But does the Earth not rotate...does it not revolve...seems to me Earth is a big Space Station...

I wouldn't say furthest to travel, there are a lot of caches more than 250 miles from my home coords. I would say highest terrain rating, or most difficult to obtain required equipment.

Ok Ok not furthes to travel. ( I'm working in 2 hours of sleep here guys and gals.

Here is the thing on the moveing part. The cache is moving in relitivity to us. In the night sky as we stand and look up. The spacestation moves around the earth and you can see it in the night sky.
Kind of a bad hiding job if you ask me Not like any of Barts hides to be sure I mean you can see it from 250 miles away. with the naked eye ( ha I said naked ) ( again no sleep sorry. )

All that said I would love to find this cache and his other cache at the bottem of the ocean.

I can see a cache of mine from over a .25 mile away...and given the right time of year...just about anyone can see it!!!

Yes but that is .25 miles as aposed to 250 miles BIG diffreance.
You are right though there were a few caches here in Bismarck that now that I have found them and know what to look for I can see them from a ways away but not 250 miles.
