I am a little far away to be of much help but if there is a way I can help please let me know. I definitely would love to attend an event in north Georgia.

We are too far to help plan, but we could attend! Just a bit under 5 hour drive. Hope you can get some help!

I love the way the T-shirts kept changing.

Yes. Most people don't notice the changes. Did you notice the one about geocaching?

How do you happen upon these videos?

I remember it from the first run of this revival of "The Twilight Zone". I only thought about it when I was reading some of the follow-up posts to my original post, so I looked it up. I don't remember what specifically caused me to recall this story.

Which one are you calling geocaching? Gahenna was on there a long time. I kept expecting it to change.

Also, if you are interested, we are asking for stamp donations.

There are a few more openings for the new/underused product tracker. Last year was fun but challenging at times. Hoping for a couple more people :-)

I got four "you have new AQ mail" notifications, all sent within a 2-minute window. When I logged in to AQ, there was only one unread message.
Not sure if AQ was just quadruple-checking to be sure I knew there was a message (I AM a little old and forgetful), or something went haywire??

I’ve noticed that when you send a message to multiple people at the same time, like on a tracker, it freezes or takes a few minutes to send. Maybe it just data overload.. It’s going back to the Stone Age and dial up. Giggle.

Do you like the ocean? Whether or not you do, this is an interesting web site. Be sure to scroll all of the way to 9,000 meters and beyond. There is so much information here that I feel like it might need to be an event theme. I hope that you enjoy what you see!

Wow!

I didn't know an elephant seal can dive to 2400 meters. I didn't think that a mammal could do that, except a whale. And the cuvier's beaked whale can make it to 3000 meters.

I imagine people keep hitting send because it takes so long. They think it’s not going to send. Then it sends as many as they click.

Not sure how you could do this, but it would be pretty cool if on the Events page there was a map pinning the location of upcoming events. That would be an easy way to visually see events in specific areas.

If you can find time between your hiking adventures this may be a interesting/challenging project.

Thanks
