  1. Yoda, were you able to get your cache? I'm still stationed here for another 9 months. I might be able to head out that way and check it out.
  2. Hasai (= Howdy! in Okinawan Japanese "Uchinaguchi") jbuffethed! FREE routable maps for Garmins, try this. Free maps for Garmin brand GPS devices from OpenStreetMap Read the site and how tos. I use it everywhere I've gone to, US & Japan. If problems using them, give me a PM (Personal Message) from my Profile page. I probably can help. Good Luck & Cache On! Thanks, I had forgotten about that site. I've got the City Navigator on my Colorado and Nuvi for the states, but couldn't find anything CN for Japan. I have downloaded all of Japan from that site. I'll load it up and see how it works. I found one geocaching group on Facebook, but it's not really active and I cannot post on it. Is there a group on Okinawa? I'm sitting at 848 finds right now. I want to try and time my 1000th for Japan.
  3. That is great. I have a Garmin Colorado & and a Nuvi. What do you use for routable maps? I see gpsfiledepot has maps, but they aren't routable.
  4. I am moving to Kadena in May-June '14. I do not have any contacts over there that cache. Would love to have a caching buddy too. Where do you work? I'll be at the 18th CS. You can message me too.
  5. Finally went out backpacking a few weeks ago with 3 other friends. I always bring my 100oz bladder with ice/water from home. I was going to get one of the Kayadyn's, but we found the "Life Straw" at Bass Pro for $20. It's small, light, and filters up to 264gals of water. http://www.basspro.com/LifeStraw-Personal-Water-Filter/product/12061210011934/?cmCat=CROSSSELL_THUMBNAIL
  6. Cool, thanks! The next release will have some UI updates for JB. 0.0.85 is working on Jellybean 4.2.2
  7. Foxtrot, I just got Jelly Bean 4.1.2 leaked to my HTC Rezound. Your latest v0.0.85 works like a champ.
  8. Actually, yes. I'm in the process now. I'm waiting on some required graphics and approval of upgrading my google account. Foxtrot, I love Benchmap. I've been testing from near the beginning I think when you first asked for testers. I use it all the time when I am out and cant load markings into my gps. I havent experienced any issues running it on my Rezound, Ice Cream Sandwich, on Verizon.
  9. U 181 S 181 T 181 This last Friday, we were able to welcome back 4 Tusgkegee Airman to Alabama. They flew into Montgomery and headed out to Moton Air Field. It was their first time since their training during WWII. My family and I were out near Tuskegee Alabama and had to stop. I love visiting history like this. Three marks are accessible to the public by visiting the museum. Great piece of history. Hanger #2 will be open soon with a real "Red Tail" inside.
  10. I've seen this bridge many times on this forum. I finally made it out to Vegas all the way from Alabama. I had to make the drive to Hoover Dam and into Arizona. I loved it out there.
  11. I found a similar mark in Apollo Beach, FL, but it is stamped and is in the database. Not my photo. I could never find the one I took. Designator HIL 14 B FLDT
  12. I am running Windows 7 x 64 with Firefox or Chrome pushing to my Colorado 300 without any problems. My GPS shuts off the seconds I remove the USB cable, but that is a Colorado issue.
  13. Recent trip to Arlington National Cemetery - HV3621 Designation: ARLINGTON CEMETERY LEE MANSION Marker Type: flagpole
  14. I usually load both. If I am out and about and I am near one or the other, I will search for it.
  15. Or if you cant help the bug/coin along, you can at least discover it. It will show in your history of trackables as it would had you actually moved it.
  16. I am headed to DC after this deployment, it would be awesome to find one of these. Hoping for Numero Uno.
  17. I do not have a Mac, but this is what I use to get benchmarks to my Colorado on the PC. I think I had the same issue with POI loader. Hope this helps. Click on the state and select the county: http://www.holoscene...ds_archive.html You will download a ".dat" file. Download NGS->GPX http://ngs.tsqmadnes...GPX-210b317.exe It will convert to a usable gpx file. It gives you all the full description and all. I just drag the new gpx file into my gpx folder. All location adjusted show as a gold treasurebox, location scaled shows as a "?" You get the full description as you would a cache. I use this all the time and works like a champ. Green Box - Regular Cache Gold Box - Adjusted Benchmark ? - Scaled Benchmark Little antenna near cursor - towers/radio antennas
  18. I found a pic of how the above instructions show on my Garmin Colorado. Green Box - Regular Cache Gold Box - Adjusted Benchmark ? - Scaled Benchmark Little antenna near cursor - towers/radio antennas
  19. I dont use GSAK to load benchmarks, but this is how I load them directly into my Colorado 300. Click on the state and select the county: http://www.holoscenes.com/special/geocac/ds_archive.html You will download a ".dat" file. Download NGS->GPX http://ngs.tsqmadness.com/ngsgpx/release/NGSGPX-210b317.exe It will convert to a usable gpx file. All location adjusted show as a gold treasurebox, location scaled shows as a "?" You get the full description as you would a cache. I use this all the time and works like a champ.
  20. If you did actually find the cache, you have to mark it as found separately from a "needs maintenance".
  21. I like getting out and about to places I normally wouldn't go.
  22. I'm not a big NASCAR fan, but that car looks awesome. You did a great job.
  23. Hey Tuck, check out www.gpsfiledepot.com for free topo maps. They work great, but are not routable.
  24. Because I am one day closer to the end of this deployment and one day closer to seeing my wife and kids.
