  1. I got 5, 30 cal at a yard sale yesterday for $8 total. All in good shape. I think Army surplus here gets around $4.50 each for them.
  2. Come see Missouri's largest ammo can cache. It's on historic Rt 66 in Lebanon MO. I an the cache owner. It's Jolly Green Giant GC1MDCE
  3. If you hide a cache that a newbe would have a very hard time finding, but to an experienced cacher it would be found in just a minute or two. Would you rate it maybe a 3 or 3 1/2 for the newbe or 1 or 1 1/2 for the experienced cacher? Or somewhere in between?
  4. This GPS has been used very little and it looks like new. Comes with Owners Manual and Quick Start Guide. $75 plus $5 shipping. See Product Features below. PM me if interested.

  5. My answer would be" I placed this cache because I wanted to.
  6. I appreciate your help but I'm still stumped. I ran Pocket Query and pulled it up in GSACK and went to the "export to TomTom" and can't figure what to do next. Here is the window that comes up when I click "export to TomTom" I'm just not very good at this stuff. Where do I go from here? Thanks a bunch...Lacomo Edit to add: Got it figured out Thanks all.[/size]
  7. I just purchased a TomTom 720 and would like to add geocache waypoints on it. I don't want to take it out of my vehicle to go to the cache I just want it to get me close and then I will use my Garmin Venture CX to find the cache. Can I load sonething like a hundred waypoints at a time using a Pocket Querie? If so how do I do it? I use GSAK for my handheld GPSr.

    You Got Me

    Yep, you're hooked. See below, it's incurable. Main Entry: in·cur·able Listen to the pronunciation of incurable Pronunciation: \(ˌ)in-ˈkyu̇r-ə-bəl\ Function: adjective Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French or Late Latin; Anglo-French, from Late Latin incurabilis, from Latin in- + curabilis curable Date: 14th century : not curable <an incurable disease> ; broadly : not likely to be changed or corrected <incurable optimism>
  9. I think the cache size should be listed on every cache. However it is your cache you can do what you want with it, I would probably not go for it if the size was not listed.
  10. I agree "buy a cheap PDA" I got a Palm Pilot M505 off of ebay for $36 total shipping and all. You can always find then on there.
  11. Yes you can move it and update the coordinates. You can only move it 528 ft or less. If you would need to move one more than 528 feet you would have to go threw your reviewer.
  12. I'm not down to hiding all micros. Here's one I put out last week. Edit: typo
  13. Read This Thread then go buy a Garmin.
  14. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. Here's one I just got published today and I put a FkTF in it. Click on it and you'll see what I mean. GC1MDCE
  15. I don't worry about snakes, and I sure wouldn't let them stop me from hiding a cache. You leave them alone and they will leave you alone. I have been bitten by snakes several times but never by a poison one. It has always been when I was handling them. Never hurt much more than just a pinch. I think I have had them draw blood a little bit but I've had briers and thorns draw a little blood many times.
  16. Here's one I'm working on. I just have to put the decals on it and do a little work to the inside of it. I have put a regular size ammo box on top for size comparison.
  17. I believe this may be the one you are talking about. Cool Cache Containers EDIT to add: Oops sorry, I should have checked out the other link before I posted.
  18. Wal-Mart has magnetic key holders. A better and more waterprof container would a match holder (they have a rubber gasket) sold in the camping department at Wal-Mart, if you want it to be magnetic just tape a magnet to it.
  19. You'll find the answer to your question HERE

    There are lots of reasons for them being there. Another reason is that I've seen hunters marking their way to a deer stand so they can find it later.
  21. Bergie Bunch, I have been signed up for instant notifications for over a year and as far as I know I have never missed getting one. Please go over your settings for your notifications. Make sure you have all the notifications set for all the different types of caches. If you only have a notification set for a Traditional Cache, and a Multi-cache is published, you will not get a notification for the Multi-cache. Another thing. When you set up a notification for a certain kind of cache be sure you have the correct millage set for that kind of cache. If you tell it to notify you for all the caches within 10 miles of your point of origin for your subscription? (like your home coordsnances) and a new cache is published 20 miles from your point of origin you will not get a notification. Hope this helps.

  23. ^Zor^ Sorry for getting off topic but ^Zor^ if you call or email Garmin they will send you a new band and everything you need to fix your GPSr. They did me for mt Garmin Etrix Venture CX and it was over a year old. edit to fix typo
  24. Yes the area is up for grabs and you can put a new cache there. One of my caches is where an old cache had been that was muggled. The owner hadn't made an attempt to replace it so I emailed them and ask if they needed help replaceing it, or if they would archive it so I could place one there. They lived 50 miles away and were getting out of caching and were glad to archive it. I put a cache there 2 days later.
  25. Those icons just represent what type of waypoint it is. Like one is for parking and one is for trailhead etc. Usually the Lookup and name will give you that information.
