  1. The above poster is spot on with adding waymarks on the go. Extra maps are personal preference really. I have a TomTom for the car, so didn't really need the extra map detail, but the base map on the etrex is so, so poor, it's untrue. However, a lot of folks don't even need a base map, just the direction arrow.
  2. Try Edgemasters back door: http://ge.pythonmoo.co.uk/cgi-bin/geochat/irc.cgi Philip This link works for me. To be honest lads (those that created the site etc..), it's a great addition, it is really. However, it "seems" to have been created by users of firefox/mac/othernonconforming/not-explorer users. Just my 02. regards, Paul
  3. How cool is that!! Maybe it (geocaching) should become part of basic! That is brilliant. I have also noticed a number of unfounds in Afghanistan, one of which is described as an IED lookalike. Not sure if I'd be unscrewing the top off that baby.
  4. You're first in the log book, so that makes you FTF. There is a post going on the US forums where the FTF signs the log book, then purposely fails to log it on-line just to wind up the second "FTF'rs", until they log on-line and bitch about it. You won it fair and square. There is a similar one near me (Burton On Trent), that was immediately suspended by Lactodorum, as he spotted it was on private land.
  5. Geoff, I'm going to send you a Geocoin next week. How do we transfer from my inventory to yours? I've seen mention of a "grab" option, but don't know how it works. Any ideas? Regards, Paul
  6. Oh I do like that one. Might have to "borrow" that idea. Very neat.
  7. Congrats to the parents. Make the most of it, it won't be long before they flee the nest. That's what it feels like for me at the moment. Well done to all.
  8. This is exactly why I got rid of my Ipaq about 18 months ago. I bought it thinking it would be 1. Better than my paper diary. 2. able to run TomTom. 3. Allow me to do e-mails, albeit offline. 4. Allow me to modify MS-Office docs on the run. 2, 3 & 4 were ok. Trying to flick through a PPC diary is rubbish compared to a standard paper pocket diary. And to top it off, if the battery goes anywhere near flat, or if you dropped it from more than 2 inches, the bloody thing would hard reset. I just got so miffed off with having to restore from my backup. Sorry for the mini-hijack.
  9. Yup, google earth. Placed me at 72m above sea level, my garmin says about 220ft. So it's not bad as a general guide +/- 10-20 ft. Although you could probably use some long sticks and the sun..... (i'll get me coat)
  10. I'm told google earth can do it, but haven't checked.
  11. Here's one I found using google But it won't let you navigate by place. You have to put in an altitude search, then find the places in a list.
  12. What's the RH Cd. Nice car BTW, have always hankered after something like that. With a fully pimped up 1600 x-flow.
  13. Ok, well I must admit that it had me fooled. When i click on the icon for uploading pics I get a box appear that has a http:// in it, so I put in the photobucket URL. When i view it on the forum it only uploads a bit of text called [/img] So I decided to just copy and paste the URL here in the reply window....BINGO !! So why cant I use the Insert Image button ? Strange ? Anyway, apologies to those of you that have put up with my feeble attempts at uploading a pic. And thanks for the help I have receivedfrom Keehotee and Paul. John, you don't have to use the image insert button. Just paste the url as text then add the IMG tags at the start and end. P.s. you can use the "preview post" tho.
  14. That might be right. I've put it in my phtobucket for now, just to show it.
  15. You can't upload a photo directly from your home PC, you need to host the picture somewhere else. For example photobucket. There are many others. Create your account, then upload your photo's from your home machine. On the host account you can then copy the image link. Then, on GC.com when replying to a post click on the "insert image" icon (looks like a tree), and follow the steps. Sorry if that sounded a bit simpleton. Regards. Paul
  16. "Footpaths are for the weak and timid! Look, the compass is showing straight ahead. That's where I'm going!"
  17. Haven't been caching in the Mustang yet, bit tight getting the two dogs in. Plus her indoors, and the one babe that is still at home, + a handbag or two. edited to add..yes I know it's not a classic, but it's a bit different, no? Loving the Healey.
  18. That info is only available to the Platinum members. Sorry......... Quite frankly I'm appalled at the customer service level shown in this thread. Especially as an African based moderator took $1500 off me to ensure that I had in fact achieved GOLD+Member status.
  19. Didn't know that was available. Thanks for the link. Or should I shay TFTL
  20. I think it was NW rather than NE, but where is MIDS, east and west?
  21. There's a league? Wouldn't that mean there is a handicap system? Stop messin' and give me the the link...I need it. Like you say "don't let the bar stewards grind you down".
  22. This is set up by one of the reviewers. Its pinned to the top of the forum under multiple pinned tpoics but here is the direct link for you. http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=161327 Many thanks for that. There doesn't appear to be one for the Midlands. Is there a way of searching for Midlands folks? Regards.
  23. I've seen a couple of posters with NE and SE caching.co.uk in their sig. Is there a link to show other regional forums? Thanks.
