  1. I have started seeing these stuck on ATM's around town.
  2. Have you tried 2-part epoxy. I have had great luck with that. Use a good amount.
  3. #13 No need to use Backtrack to find the way back to your geovehicle, just follow the footsteps.
  4. Just finished "The DaVinci Code" loved it, good companion to the older Tom Clancy books. Only problem is now I have to go to the bookstore and get his 3 other books. Oh well reading material for the next week.
  5. I liked your Tacoma Dead Drop, Mr C. that was a great hide.
  6. Meri Plat myself, Like DW i am also waiting to see what the 60-cs is going to be like.
  7. Resource Coordinator for HP. Live in Seattle, WA area, but run the Engineers in Oregon, Hawaii, Alaska and Guam. Work from Home, at a desk surrounded by computers, getting my yearly dose of radiation every day. Geocache on the weekends.
  8. I have the MeriPlat myself and have been very satisfied. Dang that Garmin 60cs sure looks sweet. I wonder if there compass is the same as the Platinum ( you dont need to hold it flat, it works in 3D). I will let some other people experiment with it before I buy one.
  9. Welcome to your new money pit. Hint: if you are searching the spot that you swear its at, and cannot find it. Look UP. and the biggest hint of all, Have Fun.
  10. Great story, maybe the cache should be moved down there and the difficulty rating raised. would make it a unusual cache. Each cacher would have to figure out how to get it on their own, without climbing down. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  11. Because he told me too. Always listen to your dog, otherwise they will not find anymore caches "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  12. quote:Originally posted by Uplink:Navdog has a well done geocaching magizine called http://www.moondog3.com/cachlifespring2003.htm. Check it out! Very nicely done. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  13. Yea that book you get with the MeriPlat is not very handy. Gotta love that compass, but i was finding a cache last weekend, GCB0C4 the compass was showing a new direction every minute, set it down and watched the river for awhile and it finally zeroed in.

  14. Just go for the CWP, had mine for about 20 years now. If I am out in the "deep" woods, I usually carry. Have run into about 4 bears, once a mom and her cub. That was fun. The only time I really pulled it out and safety off was when I was on a hill taking some great pictures of a valley, turned around to put the camera away and about 50 ft away was a mountain cat, we both just stared at each other for about 5 minutes. He was looking very thin and hungry. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  15. Yea that happened to be before also, but who's to say that they (ufo) don't geocache also. They probably picked up the cache when they saw you comming and were signing the log. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  16. Also, hanging iPaqs off of hubs can cause some problems, The biggie when using usb is to install the software first, reboot (not always needed, but helps) then drop the iPaq into the cradle, you should not need to select get connected, you will get prompts that a new device is found, then thats its a Compaq iPaq, then that the device is configured and you can use it, activesync should start up and ask to be configured. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  17. I have had no problems using the Belkin N10117 usb to serial adapter with my Compaq laptop. Just remember install the driver before connecting the adapter to the usb port of your laptop. If you do it the other way around you can have major problems. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  18. Also a vote for the PowerEx http://shop.mahaenergy.com/store/comersus_Index.asp very nice, I have the 2000mah batteries with the MH-C401FS Charger. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  19. How about a Costco, our local one does shirts and jackets. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  20. Been looking at doing that myself. Tried one of those online practice exams, and passed it. Looking for the "look whos talking" book to brush up. Have you started looking at radios yet? "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  21. Great on your first find. You will soon start to see everything in a Geocaching way. When in a store you start to look at containers with the thought of how you could plant that somewhere. I find myself taking special notice of every park I see while driving around. Welcome aboard, say goodbye to your money and sanity. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  22. You do know that the 4.06 is not released to public, almost everybody that I have talked to that had tried it have had trouble. Go back to the released version 4.02 "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  23. I use the Windshield mount for my Platinum. I like the cradle, trying to come up with a better mount so its next to the radio in my Jeep, would be much easier to read. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
  24. I will third the Moto T7200. Picked one up a month ago, love it. "We never seek things for themselves - what we seek is the very seeking of things." Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
