  1. Well I guess I would be on the low side. I've been caching for 5 years, it really seems like much less time than that, but I've found 248 caches. I go in spurts, I find a bunch of caches the lose interest for a while. I guess I'm lucky we have alot of caches within 100 miles of home.
  2. I've decided I'm going to place the cache. I know the general area I just have to find just the right spot for it. I guess I'm doing some scouting tommorrow.
  3. I guess I'm just thinking about getting a new cacher discouraged by not finding this. I know about the ratings and listing the caches. I just don't want to have someone give up on caching because they can't find this one. Like I said this one will be evil. Very hard to find the cache.
  4. I guess I should say our cahers have a pretty good hider here locally but this might compete with his hides.This one will really be an evil hide. I will e-mail details to someone who is not local.
  5. I won't give too many deatails here because we have alot of local cachers but I have an idea that should stump just about anyone looking for it. The only problem I have is I don't want to scare off new cachers that might want the challenge. Any ideas?
  6. Ditto on Garmin Customer Service. They are great. I've had to send 2 back after the warranties were up and both were sent back like new at no charge.
  7. Try and look for the easiest ones first. Difficulty 1 terrain 1. Also as stated in some other replies try to steer clear of the micros until you have found a few. Once you find some in your area you'll kind of learn how the cachers in your area like to hide them. After you find some you'll start to get a sense of where would I hide it. Good luck and let us know how you're making out.
  8. My phone easily goes two weeks if I'm not using it. Obviously not a Motorola Razr. Those pieces of poopie barely last a day even if you don't use it. Now that's weird I use my Razr and let it go for 3-4 days without charging and no problems. Maybe a bad battery? My sister just took her Motorola phone back after sending it back 3 times and they told her it was a dead cell in the battery. It's worked great since they put a new battery in it.
  9. I have a question along this topic. I went to use my 60cs today for the first time in a couple of months. Now it was cloudy here today but the screen went to acquiring sattelites and found 3 of them but after sitting for 15 minutes it hadn't done anything. I figured it has to get the akmanac data but I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen.
  10. Thanks that's the link I was looking for.
  11. Hi, A while ago there was a discussion about removing the rubber band around a Garmin E-trex to open it up and check the connector inside. I've lost the link I had that told how to do this. I'm hoping someone on the forumns remembers this. Thanks in advance for any help with this.
  12. Hi, A while back someone posted a link on removing the rubber band from around an E-Trex gps to clean the contacts. I've lost the link and was hoping someone remembers this. Thanks in advance for any help with this.
  13. ok i stilldon't get it. can you e-mail me. like i said i don't want to ruin this one it just isn't clicking. i'm probably making it harder than it is.
  14. Can anyone help me with this? I'm just trying to figure out how to decode this.
  15. Your budget is a big factor. There are alot of good handhelds available at all different price ranges.
  16. Ok it doesn't have any digits for the UPC code just letters you substiture for the coordinates. I honestly have no idea how to figure this out.
  17. Without giving toomuch away can someone reccomend how to decode a upc puzzle cache?
  18. Cool site. I wonder what the prices are like.
  19. Can anyone help me with this. I think this might be a good 5 rating but noone has done one like it here so I'm not sure.
  20. Surprisingly they have a few available here. I think I'll go get a couple backups tommorrow. Thanks for the info.
  21. I'm going to be hiding a new cache and without going into too much detail I'm wondering what I should set the difficulty at. I don't want to say too much here but if you contact me I will let any non local cacher know my idea and you can let me know what you think. Thanks for any help with this.
  22. we've been having a rash of that here. I've had 2 of mine go missing. and a few other cachers have some unavailable.
  23. my problem would be that they say not use rechargeables. i wouldn't want any part of it if i couldn'y use rechargeables. just my opinion but i'd rather payabout $15 for some batteries i can recharge as opposed to even at dollar store prices $1.00 just about anytime i want to go caching.
  24. i would e-mail again. i've had nothing but good luck with their tech support.
  25. we received 21 here in NW Pa. I managed to get one just putting a cache together to launch it.
