  1. If a TB is grabbed from somewhere miles away and dropped in a local cache, does that 'grabbed' mileage get added to the TB's mileage? Thanks M
  2. Upload an image to the cache's page When it has uploaded, click on the image so it opens with the full address in the address bar Copy that full address into the 'Background Image URL:' text box Done! M
  3. Yay! That's great news. Hope to get down there and do it sometime
  4. That reminds me... We stopped at the garage in Betws-y-Coed, on the way back from Snowdonia last year and this dude on a motorbike wandered over to me and asked what 'Geocaching' was - he'd spotted the car's window sticker. He said he'd come across an ammo box in the hills somewhere full of tat and had remembered that it said Geocache on it. I explained and he said that he already used a GPSr for paragliding. It would be interesting to know if he ever gave caching a try M
  5. The self driving BMW they had on Top Gear last year must have used pretty accurate GPS detection... link to you tube M
  6. You can still drop a TB in and out of a cache just to show it's been there even if the cache is too small or even a virtual (but not Earthcaches) We had the '?' TB for ages as we wouldn't find a puzzle cache to drop it in so we just logged in in and out of each one we found until we were able to leave it somewhere for good.... M
  7. Did you leave the TB at Birkacre Fish Pass? If not, you could log it in and out (sometimes known as dipping) to add that cache to the TB's history. M
  8. No! That will add to the cache's gallery You'll need to go to the TB's page and upload an image there
  9. We set an 'unknown size' that was not a micro! Why? Because we wanted to keep the details on the page to an absolute minimum.
  10. The farcical post code search on the HOME PAGE is an embarrassment to the site and Groundspeak ought to be ashamed of it! It's the first thing a newcomer would try and it gives results HUNDREDS OF MILES OUT!!! According to the post code search on the home page, the my nearest cache is: NW 292.3mi from your home coordinates Little wonder that anyone I mention the hobby to hasn't taken it up! M Edited for spelling
  11. At a guess I'd say it means: Don't Let The B*****s Get You Down The 'B' word could be a mild expletive or a slightly stronger (and one letter longer)one
  12. I wonder how many extra hits your holidays website got this afternoon... M
  13. Firstly TBs and Geocoins are NOT swaps. You do not need to leave anything if you take them and you should not take anything when you leave them. I saw a log just today saying: "Left TB, Took Alarm Clock" This is plain wrong! Photos of caches: Unless it says 'No spoliers' etc don't worry about it. Like many cachers, we seldom look at cache pages and photos before hand anyway M
  14. When I told my brother about caching and that the GPS signal gets you to within a few feet of the cache he wasn't overly impressed; he's a surveyor for a company which maintains the railway track and they use GPS for positioning their instruments with mm precision accuracy M
  15. A big 'Well Done John & Isaac' from us too!
  16. And it says "GEOCACHING.COM" across the back Have you looked behind the petrol/derv filler flap?
  17. Well done on finding your first cache!! After months of talking about it we have finally got around to organising an event, why not put it in your diary and come along, here's the link: 'link' It's situated near to the M42 so easy to get to from all areas of the Midlands. M
  18. Yup! Well done from us too! Looks like mongoose's records page needs updating again M [edited for typos ]
  19. I 'won' a 2007 Groundspeak Lackey Geocoin in a raffle at the UK's First Mega Event but soon realised that it was already activated and its page says: All geocoins in this series will remain owned by Signal the Frog. Why's that? I've seen other lackey coins belonging to individual cachers. Why can't the 2007 coins be transfered? Thanks M
  20. We have an unactivated Stonehenge coin that we would like to swap for an unactivated Big Ben or London Eye Thanks M
  21. Being right on the Worcestershire/Warwickshire border, there's no mistaking that our caches are all 'West Midlands' and we have changed them all to reflect this. However, there's a cache 1.7 miles from our home co-ords which is listed as 'East Midlands' M
  22. Personally I wouldn't bother searching by 'state'... I've seen caches listed as totally the wrong area I wouldn't bother searching by postcode either anymore but that's another story. M
