  1. I just purchased Metroguide. I would like to use this at home and work. With the Unlocking code scheme they use, can I do this or is it licensed per machine? I would only use it for personal use, and would hate to have to buy two copies. I am not asking for a crack, just a clarification.
  2. quote:Originally posted by Olar:If all else fails you could try sending an email to the owner of "Greenhill Slide", GC544E which is right on your requested coordinate in Nova Scotia. Someone could actually find that cache, take a pic for you and get to log 2 finds. WOW! That’s awesome. Do you think it would be appropriate to post a note on the cache page?
  3. Sounds like a good excuse for a road trip to me, since your so close
  4. I don't know a real good way to get the Lat and Long of that area, but it appears the W62.47.xxx would be east of Moncton toward New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. I'll have to defer to you on that one. If you can take a picture anywhere along that line and send it per the instructions, we'll both have a unique cache to log. Thanks!
  5. Now I am curious, what does it say on the lid?
  6. quote:Originally posted by BrianSnat:I have the Vista. I like its compact size and the fact that I can just toss it in my pocket and take it pretty much anywhere. The Magellain is MUCH larger. Some have an issue with the eTrex's patch antenna, but I find it works fine. I just spent a few hours routing a new hiking trail in dense forest, under rainy skies and never lost a lock. _ How is the base map on the Vista, can it navigate you through neigborhoods and the like or would you need to add the Streets and Rec. I think it's called.
  7. I was going to order the Vista today. I chose the Garmin for no particular reason other than I have a Garmin 12XL and have been pleased with it. I am wanting the mapping features of the Vista. I am curious to follow this thread to see if I might change my mind.
  8. Has anyone had experience with the plastic decontamination containers offered on Cheaper Than Dirt. Are they really waterproof. I have seen metal Decon containers but never plastic. I like the size of those over ammo boxes for a particular cache I'm working on. But it will have to stand up to rain and snow. It wouldn't be submerged.
  9. Obviously from my previous post I am not up on my Canadian Geography, typical American Huh? I am wanting to complete the Wheres in a Name Cache I need a picture taken at the mentioned coordinates (W62.47.xxx)and in turn we both get to log an interesting cache. Thanks to Orangezest for turning me around.
  10. Good Suggestion, I wasn't sure which way would be the best way to go. I'll give it a shot. Thanks !
  11. I was going to order one as well. I see that Chartedwaters.com is listing it for $299. Did you find a rebate coupon somewhere?
  12. Hello. I would appreciate some assistance from a cacher in Northern Canada. I would like to log the Where's In A Name? cache. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=gc3153 I need someone to take a photo at N62.47.xxx
  13. quote:Originally posted by Alan2:One of the reasons I follow a cache that I found. I want to make sure the next person finds it. After that, if it gets plundered it's not something I did in re-hiding it. Alan Exactly! I always breathe a sigh of relieve when a cache has been found after I found it. I’d hate thinking I caused something to go haywire with a cache. I had one that was found a few days after I did and they stated it was very visible. I put it were I found it and thought it was hidden okay. But I am always extra careful to maintain the integrity of the cache.
  14. Mine too is pretty obvious and boring. It was after a thaw from a tremendous ice storm that hit here that Maxine (my Dalmation) and Me caught cabin fever. I had heard of Geocaching but never tried it. I loaded one cache in the GPSr and off we went. She has been my caching buddy ever since.
  15. I have an idea for a cache that would require the container to be buried but the cap would be above ground. All contents would be accessible without any digging whatsoever. Would this be an acceptable cache?
  16. quote:Originally posted by CoronaKid:You guys crack me up! This is the main reason I bought a cheap PDA is so that I had all the hints available at the tap of a button. No more decrypting hints in the field for me. --CoronaKid You know I have an iPaq, MobiPocket and the like and nothing beats having that piece of paper. I'm just old school I guess
  17. I recently resorted to a clue that stated "There is no need to bushwhack to this cache, go to xx.xx.xxx (actually spelled out so it took forever to decrypt it) for a straight shot at it" Alot of good that did after I bushwhacked my way to the general location.
  18. I would tend to be a little lenient on the public page, but wouldn't hesitate to email the owner privately with my concerns.
  19. I recently made the Reno-West Yellowstone trip myself. There are a bunch of easy traditional caches along I80. The best cache along your route would be Craters of the Moon Hot Spring Near Twin Falls, ID. It is an awesome hot spring that you can take a dip in.

  20. I just picked some of these up at Wal-Mart to put in caches. I hope the are not considered cheezy. I wasn't even planning on trading anything just putting them in there. They had cowboy hats on and just too cute to resist.
  21. I love the idea. The props make it all the more fun.
  22. Oh, Oh ! Show Me...Please !
