  1. Have a look at this. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx?lat=52&lng=-1&dist=20&sortdir=asc&sort=lastfound The first cache (which has been found) says last found '08 Aug 10' but if you open the cache page it has been found numerous times since then. So there!
  2. Yeah we did six countries in one day in 2010. Full story here I did G'ebbes last year on a separate day trip so if you wanted to do that I'd advise you to go there first and then do other countries on the way home maybe. A group of other cachers from the Midlands did six in a day last April by finding a cache in UK, flying to Strasbourg or somewhere and finishing up in Bruges an then going to G'ebbes the following day (I think) Mark
  3. 'Play Anywhere' Wherigos: As the name suggests, you play it anywhere and it gives you the final location (or the means to calculate the final location). It would be extremely helpful if these final locations could be plotted on the online map easily.
  4. Any plans to extend this to other cache types?
  5. I used it now and again. The loopholes were good fun Innocent things like posting comments to un-released TBs M
  6. Yes in the filter. Strangely they use Groundspeak's cache icon graphics as well! My Oregon 550 also had the Awesomeness filter but it only showed up once when the gpx file failed to load properly.
  7. Just tried that. It won't go into USB mode. I think it's fubar Thanks
  8. Is it possible to remove 'awesomeness' from the filter on the Oregon 650? Thanks
  9. As the topic title suggests, the screen on our Oregon 300 is not responding. Any ideas? It switches on but that's all. Hard reset isn't possible. Thanks
  10. Currently on 144 finds (still only 13 published hides) We ALWAYS use more than one type of device Between the two of us we have Oregon 300,Oregon 550,iPhone 4 and Samsung Galaxy S4 running WhereYouGo. I could add Mio P500 to that list as well but to be honest, I haven't used it for a few years now. M
  11. Strewth! Why dig up a thread that's been dead for three years?
  12. OK, I use this GreaseMonkey script I then preview the Events only PQ I mentioned earlier and step through each page at a time. This saves the event distance etc within the Firefox settings I can then go to the http://www.geocaching.com/calendar/default.aspx page an I get a nicely filtered page like this: This might all seem a bit long-winded and cumbersome but compare that to the worse-than-useless normal calendar page. Go on, click HERE to see what an unusable mess it is! I use it all the time. I have never had any feedback about the script from anyone else despite it having been download 1,325 times!
  13. Apart from having notifications set up for events, I also have a PQ for all UK Events which have not yet been attended. There's always some muppet who logs an Attended instead of a Will Attend but generally it shows me all the future events without having to mess around with setting dates. I can then preview the PQ in the map and see if there are any forthcoming events in areas I might like to go to. I also use the PQ for something else which is very useful but difficult to explain so I shan't bother because I doubt anyone would be interested anyway... M
  14. Sounds like one of those never-ending staircases
  15. My guess is that the problem is more straightforward that all those suggestions. The Etrex only supports 6 character cache codes so some are being truncated and overwriting others nearby which have the same code once truncated. Truncated ones on the etrex will then not appear on the website as they are not valid codes The solution is to load the PQ into your etrex using GSAK and the drop2 option to remove 'GC' off the start of the codes This thread will now get locked because over zealous moderators say that we are not allowed to discuss GSAK M
  16. There's a puddle in the foreground of this photo taken while doing Without Whitemoor wander....
  17. Gosh! I always plan months in advance and translate a short list of must-do caches complete with 'reserves' in case of DNFs. Mind you, we do like to find as many different cache types per country which makes things a whole lot more complicated! B) M
  18. I had the chance of FTF on a couple of Archived Virtuals last year... I didn't bother in the end though. They are still loggable for anyone who wants to risk it. I know a cacher who logged a find on a different Archived Virtual last year but his log was deleted and the listing locked. Mark
  19. It's possible if it's not locked. I have a bookmark list with all the Archived UK/Ireland Virtuals on it and I get notified whenever anyone logs a find. Sometimes logs get deleted (not necessarily by the CO either) and sometimes they remain... M
  20. I tried to play with intercache on my Galaxy S4 and got nowhere. On the one occasion the site actually let me log in (it nearly always says the password is incorrect), I was unable to get an internet connection. This was outside in my road not deep in the words etc. I think I'll stick with Wherigos (the icon is so much nicer than a boring question mark as well ) M
  21. Personally, I never use Advanced Search I just do everything with PQs. You can specify D/T there easily enough. Just previewing them on the maps will show you where the closest ones are. There's also the Project GC Matrix search tool: http://project-gc.com/Maps/mapmatrix/?profile_name=L8HNB&country=United+Kingdom&region=&county=&location=&max_distance=&submit=Filter&submitbutton=Filter M
  22. The difference then though, was that the cachers were mainly (if not all) from a technical background with a genuine interest in out-door and GPS based activities. They can't really be compared to newbies who discover Geocaching by sitting in their bedroom browsing the iPhone app store looking for a new free app to play with. Mark
