  1. We've reserved space to set up the family tents in site 110N. We're looking forward to this.
  2. I've always interpretted 'SL' to mean saw lots. TNLNSL = took nothing, left nothing, saw lots. Maybe I'm just misguided.
  3. The Sport Trak Map also has some locations in the base map that roads are just in the wrong place. There is a state route in NW Ohio that is on the wrong side of a river, that caused us a bit of confusion once. Now we just use the map for a rough idea of where we are at.
  4. Added one more vote. Need a few more though. Finally 51.8% (620 Votes) Geocaching for Love 44.6% (533 Votes)
  5. I looked back at this real quick and saw Jamie Z's post. Looks like he's right, I didn't even really look at the pictures. Just posting again to add something to his post: If the progam you are using does not accept you entering the decimal values into the minute field, just multiply the decimal minutes by 60 (.401 x 60= 24.06) to get the seconds. So 0 deg 20.604 min equals 0 deg 20 min 24.06 sec. If the program wouldn't accept decimal minutes it most likely won't accept a decimal value in the seconds field, so you have to round 24.06 down to 24 so you do lose some accuracy with that program but I guess that might be a gauge of how good the program is. Sorry had to edit (twice) for spelling.
  6. Also check the coordinate system each program is using. There is a whole host of different coordinate systems based on different map projections (getting the round world onto a flat piece of paper.) The two most common are WGS84 and NAD27, most digital formats use WGS84, thats what all the posts here are in, but if a program is written to work with paper maps it may use NAD27. There is an 81 meter E/W difference between them as well as some N/S difference.
