  1. Ill be heading out to Hershey park this weekend can any one suggest some non Hershey park activities I can do with my Family while I'm there?

  2. The wma issue needs to be adressed,at there web site they encourage every kind of out door activaty you can imagine except geocaches.Also Here on Long Island much of our outer beach(F.I.N.S.)has been closd to geocaching,yet at These very same beaches you can build a house ,camp,four wheel drive,Hunt,fish,and even Dress like a woman and run down the board walk while other men cheer you on!(Don't ask me how I know :anicute: )Just don"t hide any tupperware.

  3. There were a few on the souther barrier islands off Long Island, NY that we looked at this weekend. I don't know that they were ONLY accessible by kayak, but I know a few said it would be much easier by kayak.


    They are called the "barrier beaches" and they protect us from the ocean.What we lack in altitude we make up for in water,I would say there are at least twenty water only caches and another hundred or so you can reach by land or boat.Just make sure you put your gps in a water proof bag because no matter whar Garmin says the 60 series are NOT water proof!

  4. I left it to dry for a couple of days with no luck in fact it wouldnt even ppower up this morning so I sent it back to garmin to get repaired,it was a month over warranty but they agreed to fix it for no charge.ill let you know how things work out.

  5. Now we all should know that condensation has nothing to do with being waterproof ..... as we have seen with many cache containers. Your problem occured by placing the unit out in the direct sun ... in a damp environment. Place the unit near a dehumidifier or even under a light bulb. It will dry out and come back to normal.


    Condensation occurs from the trapped air in the case letting go of its water molecules due to heating.


    If it does not .... then call Garmin. They are very good at service and will most likely take care of you even though you are out of warrenty by one month. :anicute: ImpalaBob July 3, 2006 - 1000 finds with Koikeeper!!!!!!


    That makes sense,the condensation on the screen is allomost gone but its still not working!Ill leave it out to dry another day and see what happens.

  6. So I took the kayak out today i had the gps with me it got wet but was not submerged just vyour basic paddle spray.after a couple of hours in the sun(80 degrees)I noticed condensation developed on the screen ,i shut it down took it home and put in new batteries.Now when in starts up the screen is upside down and very faded.any advice?
