  1. When we went to Ireland/Northern Ireland earlier this year we used Open Streetmap on the Oregon but I also created an overlay of the county boundaries for MemoryMap on the Mio so I could be sure to tick off the counties I wanted. If you've got TomTom, you don't need a map for Europe's First - just park the car and follow the path The much overlooked Kyle's Cache (second oldest cache in Ireland) is a bit trickier to find without mapping though Mark
  2. We went to IOW for a day in September. Rather than repeat it all here you can read about it here! Mark
  3. And it's all soggy with condensation first thing in the morning...
  4. Found some caches today where the previous finders didn't bother dating the logs at all - just a stamp. Yeah, yeah everyone plays the game their own way and all that but it would have been nice to know if they were out caching on the same day as us or if they had done the series several days earlier (no log in PQ as yet) Mark
  5. We've always done that on our Puzzles and Wherigos With Trads it's just bad luck! Mark
  6. I just noticed some of the other D/T ratings on that series. Totally over the top! 4.5/3 for GC3PFVC, a small cache where you just have to stand in a fence and reach into a tree! Crazy!! Mark
  7. Gosh! I was FTF on that one and I never realised it was a D4! To be honest, I rarely look at the D/T ratings anyway because they are pretty much meaningless. It just emphasizes how silly D/T grid related challenge caches are! Mark
  8. Erm... That's pretty much what I meant when I said 'filter using GSAK' Can anyone think of an easier method? Mark
  9. I think you will find that Deceangi never* asks other cacher to retrieve Geolitter Other reviewers might, but but not Deci (This is not a comment on the rights or wrongs of leaving geolitter - just a statement of fact!) Mark *I could be wrong though
  10. I want so see which are the closest caches above 1344 metres (I OBVIOUSLY should not have posted this in 'United Kingdom and Ireland' forum! ) I've found a few bookmark lists for countries' highest cache but I don't want the highest - just above 1344m The only way I can think of is by running some PQs for likely locations and then filter using GSAK Can anyone think of an easier method? Thanks Mark
  11. Looks OK to me I just added an image and text to this one link In the editor, click 'source' and stick your html in there Mark
  12. There are GreaseMonkey scripts to set PQ defaults etc I'm pretty sure there's one somewhere which saves your settings I just use this one which I wrote myself link Mark
  13. OK Please make ignored caches visible when viewing someone's list of owned caches If you don't want to see them, don't go looking for them! Mark
  14. Why is this topic locked? http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=253459&pid=4382496&st=0entry4382496 I was planning to bump it, but it is locked without any explanation If Groundspeak have no plans of ever fixing the ignore list, perhaps they could at least say so!
  15. I wouldn't call that a neutral comment! Saying TFTC is pretty positive. If I had to relog I would just put our usual # number and nothing else. I certainly wouldn't be saying 'thanks' or any abbreviation of it Mark
  16. Luckily, keystone isn't a UK reviewer. You can always appeal if a cache gets rejected Mark
  17. Our dogs are the reason we started Geocaching in the first place. MrsD bought an Etrex to record how long our dog walks were. They used to accompany us on all our outings and have done many long walks: Chiltern Hundred, LOTC's Mega Series, Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scarfel Pike etc etc Nowadays, Poppy (the 13½ yo Black Lab) is too slow and stubborn so hardly ever comes with us anymore Whisper, (12yo Yellow Lab) only comes with us on local stuff where it's no big loss if we have to abandon a walk due to cows. She's great company/cover for nighttime FTF trips though I don't think they mind too much because they'd rather run around the woods or chase a tennis ball anyway Mark
  18. Well it took me 30 seconds to track down the owner of that cache! In the past I've tried to contact owners who have given up caching but I don't usually have that much luck Mark
  19. If you want to take a piece of tupperware to hide in the woods for another member of your family to find using a GPS, I'm pretty sure you could. You are asking why you should pay to take part in an orgainsed and staffed activity. It surprises me why you think you shouldn't have to pay! Mark
  20. That's pretty neat actually! When I wanted one for France last month I downloaded the whole country and had to put it on its own card even though I only wanted the middle of Paris and a smidgen by Calais
  21. You can also take your own food as well! When going to the [far cheaper and much more exciting] European parks we hire bikes because it's a lot less hassle than taking our own. Mark
  22. No point in reporting it here! Stick a note or a Needs Maintenance on the cache page Edited to add: Or send the cache owner a message Mark
