  1. Thanks for the info. I've been wondering if some of the local FTFers have a direct computer link to their brains. They sure do get jumped on in a hurry and there's a mad stampede to the cache. It makes for some interesting reading.

  2. EGH, I see you FTF on many caches in the area. When are caches released to the public? Or do you have to stay glued to your computer 24/7 to catch them as they come out? I know the competition is very fierce in this area, so I'll need more experience if I want to join the crowd. I did do some night time caching in E. WA last night and that is the only way to go. I had a entire town of Othello to myself and poked around the front yard of a home in a neighborhood to grab my first FTF. That cache had sat empty for 4 days. I guess it isn't a big hurry over there.

  3. I received a Garmin Legend for xmas and found my first caches yesterday with my 2 daughters. We had a great time despite the rain and snow. Many of my questions have been answered after spending hours reading thru the FAQ's and the forum, but I still have quite a few. One that immediately popped up yesterday while out caching was the readout. I'm not sure I have the Latitude-Longitude totally figured out. I have 3 numbers to the right of the decimal point. What is the distance that I travel each time a number changes? I understand the latitude would stay the same no matter where you are, but the longitude gets less as you get closer to the north pole? When I did watch the number change it seemed like it was close to 12 inches. Am I anywhere close? This is all new to me, so I hope this isn't too dumb of a question. While using the Go To feature and navigating to our finds yesterday it was easier to use the cordinates and think Ok, I have to go over 20 points to the West then 300 points to the North to get me close to the cache. Thanks for all the info. I've been spending hours and hours reading about my new hobby.
