  1. I have another question about bench marking; I just want to make sure that I am doing it right. When you see a listing as a water tower or TV mast, does that mean that the benchmark is that item listed or is there a survey disk under it? Just want to make sure that I take the correct picture of it.
  2. I don’t know if this has been covered before but I thought I would ask it anyway. With the fuel cost around three bucks a gallon, and the lack of new gouaches in the area I was thinking about checking out benchmark hunting, I have hunted a few elevated water tanks in my travels but I think I want to try and find one of those disc. I know you need a GPS for this and even a PDA to download the information about the benchmark and a camera to take a picture of it, but what else do you recommend for a newbie at this, or what do you use when you go hunting? Thanks for any help.
  3. I don't think you are going to find one that cheap here, maybe you should check ebay for one. did you ever think about checking pawn shops?
  4. Come honor Minnesota geocacher King Boreas and celebrate his 1000th cache hide (the 1000th hide IS NOT at the event, you have to work a wee bit harder than that to claim it!) Sunday July 16th 2006 10 am till ?? Riverfront Regional Park ( shelter #2) 5100 East River Road Fridley Minnesota Use waypoint (GCJ6BH) for more information. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...77-7dd62bb985cf
  5. A BIG AT A BOY From Minnesota.
  6. Will GC.com even allow you to claim your own cache as a find? That person must be hard up to get there number of finds up, if that is the case ever time I go out and do some cache maintence I should be able to claim it as a find.
  7. It looks like it was a good time, I wish it could have been closer to me.
  8. It is nice to see a post from a Minnesota event here.
  9. Who did you order your TB from? When I orderd my last ones from Groundspeak I got them in about a week. Not sure how long it would take if you have ordered through a third party. I hope this has helped.
  10. Ever body has bad days, I went out one after noon to search for seven caches and I had only found one of the seven. Dont give it give it another try!
  11. I have a Z22 which I bought for 100 bucks, it has a color screen with a built in rechargeable battery. I first tried buying a palm IIIxe on ebay cheap, but it was junk didnt last more than a month. I also run cacheMate and GSAK programs.
  12. What about a white jeep TB, there is one missing from a cache in our area how do we get rid of the icon?
  13. If its in a cache it is fair game.
  14. I got mine today they look great, thanks.
  15. It might help if you put a price range in you post so people know how much you are looking to spend?
  16. How about some more pictures of the new dog?
  17. Just call it an Geocache object.
  18. I had purchase what I thought was an official Palm IIIxe off Ebay for going paperless; it worked fine for a couple of sets of batteries ran through it. The next time I installed a new set of batteries in it, the unit would not turn on. Doing all the usually trouble shooting on it, making sure the batteries are good and in the correct position. I tried a resetting the unit with the reset button and still nothing. After I looked at it closer it looks like this could be a copy of a palm unit since there is no serial number or company label on the back of the unit, and I did not get any software for it. Did I get screwed on this? Or does any one have any ideals about the knock out versions of the palm IIIxe units. Can it be fixed or should I just throw it away and take it as a lesson learned.
  19. Sounds like an excellent deal, I paid $140 for mine plus shipping.
  20. I feel at the local level they do, I am talking about state association level fourms. I havent seen that on this board yet.
