  1. Anyone interested in having a end of summer BBQ and Geocachers get together? I'd be happy to host at my house in Riverside and there's lots of nearby caches to keep people entertained if they feel the need! If there's an interest we can seriously look at doing this.

  2. Here's what I have. I basically want it to give me a list of the caches I have found and the one's I couldn't find.

     

    -Give me 100 caches or all types.

    -or that I have found and have not been found

    -where, states, california

    -from zipcode 92507 within 500 mile radius

    -placed during the last year

    -this accounts email address

    -LOC format, all days

  3. What's the biggest cache that's been placed for caching? I want to make a big one, 55gal drum size. Well maybe 5gal! icon_biggrin.gif Just wondering what some of the biggest caches have been.

  4. 1. How long have you been actively using a GPS?

    Three weeks!

     

    2. What got you started?

    A co-worker from work got one, if he had one I had to have one. So I bought a better one 1 hr later! icon_biggrin.gif I'm sick BTW!

     

    3.What keeps you currently using it?

    Obsessive compulsive disorder, what else? I just wish there were more cache and EasyGPS was a tad better. So I plan on adding a lot of caches, once I figure how to be cool like some people that hide them with some serious though behind what they do.

     

    Also being a firefighter I can use it at work, lots of uses and the possibilities are endless!

  5. Some things I always carry with me no matter what I'm doing are:

     

    A Altoids tin with a signal mirror, matches, advil, tylenol#3, 25' of good string.

     

    A good knife

    First Aid kit

    Snake/bug bite kit

    Pepper Spray

    REI windbreaker

    Light sticks

     

    That's good start!

  6. Thanks. Is there a way to download more waypoints than is listed on a given page? I'd like to download all of the waypoints within 30 miles of me. I noticed with EasyGPS you can open one .loc file, but when you poen another it overwrites the one open, not ammending it. All of this stuff is driving me nut, guess I need to get out and hunt some today! icon_biggrin.gif

     

    Any help once again?

  7. I changed it to dd.ddddd because the EasyGPS software said too. I'm new so now I'm getting confused! So I changed it back to what you said and now the coordinates read;

    N33.56.823 instead of N33.94705

    W117.18.513 instead of W117.30855

     

    so now I'm really confused! ok I see now I should have changed the box to decimal degrees. So tell me do both of these coordinates point to the same place? Should I be using decimal degrees or degrees & minutes? I see cache listings are in the later, but I'd like to use the software EasyGPS, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I need to get some detailed California streets maps to put into my Garmin Legend. Which is the best software and is it upgraded often, online or by some other method?

     

    Thanks,

  9. I noticed this problem with mine sitting on the dash while driving. I'd look and it would be off. It might be the connection, it's only done it 3-4 times in 40+ hrs of use.

     

    Anyone know how to check which version I have? Is the upgrade easy? I haven't even thought about hooking it up to my Win2K machine yet. I've only had it 5 days now.

     

    Thanks,
