  1. I'm a little unclear about the first part of what you're saying, but I believe this is what you want. To get there, go to certitudes.org, sign in, enter your GC code into the banner towards the top, and click the "Create my certifiable solution" button.
  2. Ooh, that's a good one Where's the evil scheming frog when you need him?
  3. https://buy.garmin.com/en-AU/AU/p/74811 Some of the other ideas are pretty good too, but just in case you want to use it, here's where you can buy a chirp beacon.
  4. I'm pretty sure I meant to say that Wow, that's pretty impressive!
  5. Here's a list of some good ones. https://www.geocaching.com/plan/lists/BM311KC?sort=name&sortOrder=asc&skip=0&take=100
  6. We're phone cachers, but I'm pretty sure Pocket Queries are better suited to be uploaded onto a GPS. And like you said, you can filter for caches with Pocket queries, but Lists you would have to filter separately and add the caches to your list. Here are the help center links so you can try to spot some more differences. Pocket Queries Lists
  7. Welcome to the game! To answer your questions... Technically the owner is supposed to check the log to see if all of the online logs match up with the logs in the cache, so you can verify (Most of the time) if they were actually there. Yes, but would that really fun? No, that would be consider a ALR ( https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=107&pgid=823), and is not allowed. Have fun!
  8. Thanks, I was on the wrong track with solving it So basically what you would have to do is program it for every move to spell out the coordinates. RT 90 FD 30 RT 90 FD 90 RT 90 FD 30 PU RT 90 FD 45 RT 90 PD FD 30 This code for a really simple number 3. Basically, this is giving the turtle super specific instructions on how to move the right ways to draw the number 3. Turn RighT 90 Degrees, Go ForwarDs 30 steps, RighT 90 Degrees, etc. What I'm trying to say, is that you can't really have an Encoder for it (I'm sure there's one out there somewhere, but I'd think the chances of finding it are pretty slim) , you have to act as the encoder yourself.
  9. We run a Antivirus software and trust geocachers (Well, most of them), so I'd be willing to do it. I've done multiple puzzle caches that link you to a different website to get the coords. They tend to be pretty fun, mostly because you can do things you couldn't do directly on geocaching.com.
  10. I'm still not exactly sure what you mean by Turtle. My best guess is the Python Turtle. Could you please tell me if the code looked something like this? import turtle pendown() turtle.forward(50) turtle.right(90) turtle.left(50) turtle.backwards(90) penup() goto(50,50) stamp() Or used any of those lines of code?
  11. The ones that make me most suspicious? The ones where they admit they didn't sign the log
  12. It should be, it works fine on my IPhone5s
  13. According to this blog post: I was honestly hoping for something more exciting.
  14. I would start with something lower (But please not a 1/1!), but it's totally up to you. I think our first hide was originally a 1.5/1.5, But then we ended up changing it to a 2.5/1.5. Unless you're talking about our finds. I honestly prefer a higher D/T rating. Our first find was a 2/2 (Although I'm pretty sure it deserved a higher T rating). I believe the most common DT in general is 1.5/1.5.
  15. They released the souvenir dates! https://www.geocaching.com/blog/?p=83338/?newsletter=PM Well, some of them
  16. All I know is that there was never an actual blue switch. I did a couple of searches, and came up with nothing non-related to geocaching. But now I am wondering the story behind it!
  17. We tend to leave un-activated TBs. We put them in small plastic baggies with a sheet of paper that says: Congrats FTF! If the cache will fit one, we'll leave one. The TBs we put are usually just whatever we can get cheapest on Shop Geocaching Sometimes the FTF takes it, sometimes they don't. We don't really care.
  18. I like to go to the browse map, filter for only mysteries, zoom out, and look for clumps. There are a lot of geo-arts in Florida (In my opinion). I'll get you started. Here is the first cache (Or a random one) of each geo-art. Just go to the map and look in the surrounding area for the rest. https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC6517Y_rs-1-you-cant-always-get-what-you-want https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC68GBT_1-anchors-away-uss-enterprise-cvn-65 https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC5F4N1_thurman-munson-new-york-yankees https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC5P2EW_bobby-doerr-red-sox-1 https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC7VYBT_house-of-mouse-1-mickey https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC70YFH_01-giraffe https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC7HTED_banded-peacock-butterfly-1 https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC7GDC3_largemouth-bass-geoart-series-01 https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC6FM4B_perdido-river-wmd-fl-sunshine-state-geoart-1 https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC6AZRA_apoxee-gator-run-1-alligator-facts https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC7234A_airplane-1 https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC7N5V0_beccas-cats-series-1 https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC4ZQJC_yellow-submarine-rubber-soul Have fun solving!
  19. Have you changed something? It appears to be looking fine on the Android GC app. It's possible it's just a IPhone problem. I'll have to check it out on mine.
  20. Yup, I %100 agree. I rarely ever use the compass. I especially like it for finding trails, so I don't have to hope the trail that I choose is the right one.
  21. OT, but I trust computers more than people.
  22. (Sighs...) There's a whole argument discussion on it, which is what I assume SwineFlew is mentioning...
  23. I have an IPhone 5s, and it works perfectly fine for caching. I've been using Cachly.
  24. After looking for what I consider way too long, I finally found it! I love it when the forums drag me into finding stuff that I'll never use for myself Here's the 5000 one too.
  25. Maybe they should make 2 surveys, one for people with <100 finds and one for people with >100 finds? Then the questions could match the find count a little better. I just thought of this right now, and honestly that sounds like the best solution to me.
