I'm sure many of you are trying to get to GC.com and cannot get there. I have found out that it appears that the local Internet Provider is down right now. There isn't anything GC.com can do until they get things back up. I also noticed that magellangps.com is also down, so they may have the same provider or they route through them or something.

I just thought I would pass on what I know at this time. Hopefully someone will feed the hamsters and the machines will start running again.

I have uploaded 878 metro area cache descriptions in HTML form to a private website. Assuming the worst (gc.com doesn't come back in time for the long w/e), I am ready to provide this URL as a temporary resource.

But I expect that it won't be needed.

Perhaps it wouldn't be needed now but I wouldn't mind seeing the MNGCA take it upon themselves to host cache pages that the users *want* to be posted.

I would be more than happy to relist my caches here for use in a situation just as this (especially if it is a long-term issue or even permanent).

I believe this discussion came up once before off-site but I could be imagining things in my GC.com deprived state Wink

If geocaching.com went away or got a lot more flakey the MnGCA would consider this. But as it stands that's not our gig.

Maybe rr will do it but not under the MnGCA banner at this point.

Sad Looks like Geocaching is down this evening. I have been trying for about an hour with no results. This really stinks 'cause I was missing something when I went Geocaching today.

Perhaps the name of the site should be changed from geocaching.com to geocrashing.com?

Nah, geocaching.jeep.com might solve the problem.
