  1. Past hour
  2. Sit them down in a room and have them resolve their conflicts as grownups should ... hmmmmmmm
  3. That is messed up, however, it seems that things worked out. This topic reminded me of the angst caused over messing with "Fizzy Grids" when an owner changed D/T ratings.
  4. Sure wish someone would put out an "Interstate 40 Challenge" along the lines of Blue Blazes old interstate challenges now adopted by 'Borreal Walker"
  5. This is not different than signing a traditional cache where the CO must check the logbook to determine if the log is valid.

    Stars Gone

    No need to import. When Firefox is selected as default browser, favorites from the favorites folder should open in Firefox instead of IE.
  7. Today
  8. If the finder doesn't have opportunity to verify challenge the CO can not verify it either. This can't be the reason.
  9. I have a Monterra GPS, to which I can choose different online and offline mapping options, online works great. But I'm not playing indoors, or tethering to my phone, so my other options are to find the maps on the GPS drive itself. Because it uses the Android operating system for our Chile trip I used maps.me app for offline. I purchased the topo for Canada, and North American road maps, though it has global highways for default it lacks the detailed info required, to which is why I bought the additional maps. But globally SOL again. But the maps.me app did the trick. But back to the Wherigo ... NO ! I believe we require a .map file extension to be stored on the drive, another format to look for ! http://download.mapsforge.org/ Unfortunately the offline map did not work ! And then I got it to work ! http://download.mapsforge.org/maps/world/ Index of /maps/world - not sure what I did V3 didn't appear to work so I tried another directory.

  11. Your 62S is a great unit......as said use the Eneloop Batteries, I always run down before my unit does. Every outing I install freshly charged Eneloop Batteries and can go over a year or more and never have to calibrate the compass....the voltage is very steady. Its also important to use a good charger.....I like MAHA. With MAHA charged Eneloops your 62S problems will be over.

    Best GPS

    I vote for the Garmin 78S.......I like the case better than the 60 series.
  13. I agree......go with the 64S. The only thing wrong with the 62/64 units is the rubberized coating which can be destroyed by salty, sweaty hands.
  14. What a great series.....I have at least two of every model and several of the Platinum, many new in the box. I still think the Platinum had the best three axis compass ever. I used to cache with a friend who was cripple and couldn't walk much but with the Platinum he didn't have to.
  15. The puzzles are given as teaching tools - one or two are given as examples, and a walk through of the steps used to arrive at the puzzle solution are given. THen you are presented with one or two puzzles for YOU to solve on your own using the [articular techinique(s) taught in that chapter. It's a fun book! The hint given above by cerebrus1is a good one - and likely all the help one is likely to get from a puzzle owner in the real world, unless they are prone to just hand out answers. Yes, we probably *could* give more info and still be OK and not violate any rules/guidelines, as the puzzles in the book are "bogus" coordinates and not real caches anyway. But I don't think it would be in the spirit of the book to hand out answers either, as the book is teaching you techniques and ways to think about solving various puzzles. I think the sitcom was limited to US release pretty much - so anyone outside the US may have a tougher time "getting" the hint/clue in the puzzle.
  16. A cache owner cannot require a finder to register at another web site, provide personal information to another web site, or use a specific app. It is in the guidelines.
  17. Nächster Einsatz ist nach aktueller Planung heute 15.12 ab ca. 16:30 Uhr. Zwei Türblätter sind inzwischen eingesetzt. Weitere Türen stehen noch aus. Besten Dank auch an dieser Stelle für alle Unterstützung. Grüßle Johannis10
  18. I tried installing firefox and selected import favorites but that didn't happen. To much BS and trying to get me phone apps not user friendly. Just wanted the browser and favorites/bookmarks. Ended up having to use their help page to import favorites. I knew it wouldn't be easy.
  19. Yes indeed. I already had a new, more challenging "bingo" creation made. I forgot about needing to have a checker. So I would basically need a checker for each box on the bingo card. Not happening.
  20. Events: Gute Idee, daran habe ich noch nicht gedacht. Ich habe gerade nachgeschaut, in Aachen gab es einige aber die waren vor dem 11.12. Und dann sind die dummerweise immer an einem festen Termin, an dem man auch Zeit haben muß. Geocaching-Adventskalender: Ja, so was gab es früher auch in Aachen. Aber das ist längst vorbei. Hier wird sowieso kaum noch was versteckt. Aber wenn es sechs beliebige Tage sein können, werde ich was wohl schaffen. Wie gut, daß man das mit dem 31.12./1.1.-Souvenir kombinieren kann und die leider immer weniger werdenden Caches doppelt nutzen kann.
  21. The event page will be created by HQ as its type, Community Celebration Event, and be assigned to a CO. CITO could be offered as an event activity I suppose. I expect this will work the same way the V1 and V2 Virts did. You find the cache page among your unpublished caches , you don't create it. Possibly the 2 hour minimum time frame will be built into the cache type - or it could be something reviewers check for, given the extra coding that would require. The 10 Year! events were created by CO as Meet and Greet, and used the naming convention so that staff could find them, and assign the type. I assume they found that way too time consuming to do again.
  22. But the CO may want to verify that the output you pasted is genuine and you haven't invented a couple of finds. The checker allows them to confirm it with a couple of clicks, otherwise they might need to trawl through dozens/hundreds of finds you've listed to make sure you did find them on the day you claim and that their D/T/Attributes/etc. are all as you described.
  23. Allein zu googlen ist aber nicht so kommunikativ. Die Bilder, welche man bei der Suche findet führen meistens nicht zu einem GC-Code, um das auf der Karte zu finden. Außerdem ist es interessant zu erfahren, wie denn die Caches so sind (falls schon jemand die Runde gemacht hat), wie der Pflegezustand ist, ob die Listings individuell oder nur C&P sind, wie die Anfahrt ist etc. LG Mati16348
  24. the link take you to a disabled checker...
