  1. how did you do that?? thats cool


    With the assistance of a Dremel I just hollowed out enough of the inside structure to fit two decent size batteries, drilled out the headlights, soldered the LEDs to the battery with switch wires coming out of the back (you can see them in the photo). Ripped the old seats out and cannibalized a $6 toy car from Wal-Mart to get all the upgrades :yikes:


    There's no sign of work on the underside of the jeep either so it looks pretty nice.


    I have to go get a life now, seeya :P

  2. Okay, I admit it. I have too much time on my hands.


    Here we have a White jeep, 20inch mag wheels, sport bucket seats, a thumping sound system and of course working headlights. :yikes:







  3. This is a good idea. I have had to solve my puzzles a couple of times to get back the original co-ords!


    Same thing with final stages of multi's. I should probably keep better records at home but it's certainly easier to do it through the site.

  4. Here in Connecticut we generally have the highest priced gas compared to surrounding New England states. It hasn't stopped me Geocaching (and the Saab uses 93 octane!)


    I haven't noticed a slowdown in cache finds from others either, but I haven't really been looking.

  5. Hello,

    I have a Garmin Extrex Vista, I don't thin kit does waypoint averaging (at least in 2 years of using it I haven't found that option :blink: ).


    What unit do support waypoint averaging? Preferably Garmin units but I'm open to all options.


    Thanks in advance,



  6. It's a "feature" :o


    But on topic, I wonder if the slowdown has anything to do with the increased caching activity as the weather gets warmer, and new cachers register to play with their Christmaas presents.


    Does anyone know it the new site look and feel is more of a strain on the servers or less?

  7. I DNF 1 out of our 113 caches. There have been times that I was totaly ready to give up (usually about 30-45 minutes into a micro search). But whenever I try to quit I always have to take that one last look. That last look generally leads to another 30 minutes of searching. Two weekends ago, searching for a bison tube in a rock ledge that hadn't been found for 6 months! I gave up, saw some other geocachers come to try and decided to stay and search further. 30 mins later we were still searching to no avail. I gave up again, went to get my coat, but I felt I needed to check in one last place.. and found it. We end up finding things quite often after we've already quit :lol:


    I have walked away from 3 caches but have come back another day to find 2 of them. One still eludes us, but we were on a schedule and couldn't look further.


    Never leave a cache behind! (Except when you have a prior engagment :huh: )

  8. "GCR's do it in the woods with ammo cans"


    I don't know what other cachers are doing with ammo cans, but I'm just finding them and looking inside. :( And you never know what you're going to get. ;) As to the Vendi, Inveni, Discessi, I'd rather see that in a log, (VID) instead of PDM.

    VID, I like that. I think I found a new TLA to use!
