  1. Around my caching area, it's very much appreciated. If it were my cache, I'd say go ahead...please! It's not always easy to get to some of my caches. For some cachers that have a lot of caches out there, they depend on considerate finders to help out. For cachers that have lost the caching craze and no longer maintain their cache(s), we fanatics will keep them going if it's a good cache. I'd say to go for it...you're not doing a bad thing[:D]

    And you're not replacing an ammo can with tupperware!

  2. I have a 200 model that I got free from a Discover Card promotion last summer. I use it mostly to reach a site and then use my handheld Lowrance. However, if I have to hike in to one or more caches, I love to take the Nuvi along for the paperless feature. I'll put it in a ziplock bag in the off mode (to keep it dry cuz it's not waterproof) and stick it in my backpack. When I need it, I turn it on for a short duration (cuz of the short battery life). Love it...don't know how I existed without it.

    By the way, the Nuvi does have a pedestrian mode...don't know how well it works though.

  3. I live in northeastern Wisconsin...God and Packer country:) I hate mosquito and tick season...and snow. But I've found ways to work around them...bug repellent and mosquito headnets for one. For the other, it's searching for caches with the little snowflake icons in the attributes.

  4. I just got one of those free Garmin Nuvi's and didn't realize the shortcuts that it's capable of sending you on. As I was traveling from one cache to another, it took me off a dead-end road, through a farm yard, and across a field...that's when I discovered I was in redneck country. I saw a WWII howitzer on a hillside and a silo with a tractor on top...I kid you not!
