  1. OK, this gave me a little trouble, but I worked it through! First I went to settings, GPS, and shut down the auto detect. Next I started the Wherigo program. I let it fail, and did the auto detect shut down, set com 4, and 4800 just like above. Next I left Wherigo running, and hit my windows button, brought back up the phone's settings, and restarted the auto detect function. I then closed the settings, and went back to the still running Wherigo program. I then was able to click on OK, and it detected the GPS! I then closed everything, did a soft reset, and now it works. Thanks for getting this going for me.
  2. To be first to find, the force you will need.
  3. I started adding something to my logs recently. If I post a picture on a Cache page or a Trackable page I add that to my logs. That way if the owner is just looking at the e-mail they will know that there is a new picture posted. As for the length of the logs, I had to split one log into two once. I posted the last half first as a note, then the first half as a find. That way the log stayed in proper order. I tried to take the 986 word log, and shorten it, but just couldn't, so I had to make the split. The cache owner called me and thanked me for the log. It was for GC1DE8R if anyone cares.
  4. If I look I log. Most of the time my DNF logs are more fun to write. Then you get those pesky multiple DNFs. You write a log for each one, then one day you screw up and make the find! Oh how much fun is it to finally tie each story into a great conclusion. But I also find it fun to write a story for each and every find I make. From the Nano to the ultra huge caches every one of them gets it's own individual story. Not that I want to waste the cache owners time with a story, but in my logs I talk about the weather, the search, the people who cache with me, as well as the condition of the cache. I'm sure there are people who see my name on their caches, sigh, and skip over the log, but there are others who write me e-mails thanking me for the fun logs. As long as I get more fan mail than hate mail I will keep logging the way I do. Just remember what ever you do, you need to have fun with it.

  6. I am a dipper! If I am going on a trip I will usually find a local TB that I will take and dip into all the caches I visit. Along with logging the find I also log that I dropped and picked up the TB. I also write a log for each drop and pickup. I end up getting some great feedback from the TB owners, along with a lot of the cache owners. It's all about the fun, and the experience.
  7. Is there a way I can use the emulator on a Vista 64 bit machine?
  8. Thats a darn shame. I seriously am willing to purchase a set from him if he is willing to do something like that. I loved all the articles in them, and they gave me some great ideas. If you can get in touch with him, tell him I am interested in a set of the magazines. I would love to have them at work, they would be great lunch time reads.
  9. I read all the old articles, and loved it. Is it going to be coming back?
  10. That was on Feasting On Asphalt with Alton Brown! I have got to go there!
  11. This is great! Already I am going to Michigan and Indiana! Keep em coming! I was stationed in Bremerton, and would love to make it back to Seattle, but I think that is going to be a vacation all it's own.
  12. This year I cached my way to Myrtle Beach. I looked for caches that brought us to places for a reason. I checked out the following caches. A Child Not Forgotten There Be Gold . . . Many Gallons of Prop Wash and many others. Now I have to admit this is the way to vacation. TeriAnn and I liked it so much that we were thinking of doing a caching vacation. We are not sure where we are going yet, or if we are going to even have a destination. What I am asking all of you is to give us some ideas of cool caches, That are close to a major road That don't take her deep into the woods Are worth driving a substantial distance to see Not just guardrail caches unless there is a good reason for the cache. I found that I love earth caches, and vertuals. The wife loved not going deep into the woods. So I would love serious input, and like I said before, we don't have a destination, just a desire to see America.
  13. Check out this cache, then read the story below. Buckeye Pond NC It took me over a month to crack the code, then I had to wait two more months before we went to Myrtle Beach. So you can imagin by the time the day came to go for it I was salivating like a dog over a steak. We get to the park, and found the main clue was missing. No sweat that won't stop us, this park isn't that big. We will just hit all the little trails and we will have to find the right one. (cracking the code makes the right trail obvious) Well after a nice five mile walk through the most spider infested place on earth we came across this old (I mean OLD) couple taking in the 90+ temperature. Their skin was reminiscent of an old elephant, and their tans would make Greek Gods cower in shame. "They have to know where the trail is" I told my caching partner. So we ask, and while he was giving us very vague directions I wondered how long he had the zipper scar down his chest. Anyhow we thanked them, and made our way (hopefully) to the booty. I wondered what he thought when he saw my big behind coming up the trail soaked to the skin in sweat, holding a walking stick covered in spider webs. It wasn't another mile when we found the cache, and rejoiced. That was the last one of the day, but we came back to the park the next day to grab a few more. Great place if you love spiders.
  14. I think the coolest thing is all the time I spend with my 18 year old! Don't know how much longer that will last, but Ill take what I can get.
  15. I don't care what your GPS is telling you, my visor is telling me it is 510 feet to the west.
  16. This is the best thing going for my 200w. I am going to start writing my Points of interest in GSAK so I can add more information Thanks for all the hard work.
  17. I told you it isn't down there, now I suppose you want me to use my Bat Lasso to pull you out.
  18. I told you it would be a nano in a vent.
  19. I can appreciate the want for silence, but I just can’t follow. I don’t “jibber-jabber” on the phone, but I love to write (I may not be good at it but I have fun doing it). That’s what is so great, read what you want, write what you want, and enjoy life. Here is a log I did on one I found a few weeks ago. The one from Geoguin is also great.
  20. If I was 20 years younger, and 150 lbs lighter I would have given it a shot. Now that I am older and much bigger gravity plays into this find, and I know that I would have to log something like this. [/u]Got the cache, and a helo ride to the hospital. Note to cache owner, cache will have to be moved back 20 feet, because I took 20 feet off the hiding spot. I have been there twice now, and it is just not going to hold my girth. Oh well I will find a 5/5 that is closer to the ground, or maybe under water, or something like that.
  21. This is a write up of a 5-5 cache I wanted to get, but knew if I tried I would most likely have died. Fear Factor #1 Log
  22. I logged a note yesterday. We drove out to the cache area, but the only parking lot was roped off. There was no way I was going to park the GEO~FIT TB in the road here, someone would have taken it out.
