I like mystical and fantasy type stuff (dragons, fairies, and the like).

    So, yeah...there's the origin of my name.
    Well that explains the name . . . but I think my fingers are still going to get tripped up as I attempt to spell this . . . I suppose it could have been worse . . . you could have chose a name like, say . . . Medawisla or something crazy like that.

    Sorry, I was too busy working!
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Do you know if the hand warmers failed or just activated because they were smooshed into a cache? They should not be affected by cold weather or age because the energy is chemically stored.

    I remember finding some that were stored in my father's closet that had failed, but anything is possible. So, I did some extensive research (Ok, I just googled and read the summaries of the first page), and "Six year shelf life" was mentioned. So, they can apparently fail in time, and one could assume that extreme heat, cold, or other factors could affect that predicted shelf life.

    Now, if you put two sets of hand warmers into an ammo box, and activate one of them, maybe the activated ones would keep the unactivated ones warm enough to maintain that shelf life during the Winter.

    this could be a new geocaching quiz... what's the Half-Life of a pocket hand warmer, the winner gets a new garage door with a toyota celica!
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
