  1. We love any excuse to gather in Indy! If you book an event, they will come! LOL
  2. Yep... lots and lots of campsites still available! Hope to see lots of you there!
  3. We have regular monthly get-togethers we call "GiGs." We'd love to have you join us if you can make the date. our February meet is on Monday the 8th in Noblesville (just northeast of Indy). Check out GC233EG for more details.
  4. I would certainly like to attend the February event......I will watch for info on it...... Here you go... published only moments ago! GC233EG, hope to see you there.
  5. Just another quick note: We're still looking for pathtag donations for a raffle item we're working on for the picnic. If you would like to contribute (we are only asking for ONE of each design), please contact us through our GC.com profile for mailing info. Thanks!!
  6. You should also consider coming to a local event. The Central Indiana GC community is a VERY social bunch. We have monthly get-togethers we call "GiGs." GiG technically stands for "Girls in Geocaching" - but EVERYONE is invited (the events are only hosted by women). We just had our January meet-up last week in Avon. February is currently being planned, but I believe it will be in Noblesville. There is also a chili cook-off event coming up in early March (GC22Y91) and the Spring Picnic is just around the corner in mid-May (GC1YWMP). If you're able to make it to any (or all!!) of these events, it will give you a chance to mingle with the natives and get some great advice. I have learned so much, and made some really wonderful friends because of this hobby. Hope to get a chance to meet you someday too. Alicia (of lakedawgs)
  7. day mountains or the beach
  8. Got it, thanks! I'll add them to the next update (just waiting to get a few more to add).
  9. DOGS (OK now back on track...) GARMIN or MAGELLAN
  10. Daryl, excellent question. We've called two - The Best Western Circus City Inn and the Knights Inn. Both require us to commit to a specific number of rooms and leave our credit card number to secure the rooms. Sorry D, I like ya'll, but not enough to put up my personal credit card. LOL We'll make a few more calls and let everyone know if we run into a deal. However, the Best Western made an interesting suggestion... if there are a group of folks that need hotel rooms, they can get together and book rooms at the same time and shouldn't have a problem getting a group discount (at least 5 rooms, I believe). So if anyone wants to spearhead that effort.... Alicia (of lakedawgs)
  11. Hello all! We're looking for pathtag donations for the Spring Picnic. If you'd like to donate yours (we'd only need one per design!), please contact us through GC.com to make arrangements. Thanks!! lakedawgs
  12. I don't know that you'd want to call us "official" or anything but there is a great group of gals in the Indianapolis area called "GiG" (Girls in Geocaching). We host monthly get-togethers and everyone is welcome - the events are hosted by women, but plenty of men & kids attend. We just had our Christmas bash last night up in Carmel and it was a BLAST! We had in the neighborhood of 50-60 folks show up, I'm guessin'. Be on the lookout for upcoming GiG's and other local events... lots of us in Central Indiana are event hounds, so there are usually lots to choose from. Hope to get the chance to meet you at one soon.
  13. I purchased a subscription for myself and also gave a gift subscription as a door prize at an event I hosted in January 2008. In the summer of 2008, I and the gift recipient received our one copy of GM. In my opinion it was a very nice issue and was actually a bit surprised at the VERY nice, heavy quality of paper used (seemed expensive to me LOL)... but I digress. I was more than thrilled to see a great friend of ours (Dulcimer Guy) featured in a "meet the cachers" type of article in the issue. After reading the mag from cover-to-cover a few times, I happily gave my copy to Dulcimer Guy to keep for himself as a memento. Then I watched my mailbox not-so-patiently for almost 18 months... still no second issue. I am very sad at the way this whole situation has been handled. I understand businesses go under and can sympathize. However, it would have been nice to hear the story straight instead of receiving email after email after email stating that the next issue was on it's way to press (or some other way of saying it was in progress), keeping our hopes up for so long. If we had just heard from Michael that the venture failed, and had been offered an apology, maybe I wouldn't be so sore about the whole thing. I'm sorry things didn't work out Michael and crew, but I'm sorrier that you felt you couldn't (or wouldn't) tell your subscribers the plain truth.
  14. I've got Shydog & TH added to the map, but probably won't upload a new one for a little while (man, ya'll are FAST!! LOL).
  15. The INDNR reservation system is live for the weekend of the Spring Picnic!! If you're camping, let me know your site and I'll add it to the map.
  16. GC1YWMP Cache page has been submitted for publication. You should be able to see it soon.
  17. Hope to get a chance to meet you guys soon. We're also transplanted Texans (the Mr. is from Houston, the Mrs. is from Dallas). Definitely keep an eye open for events - we have LOTS of them in the Indy area.
  18. I have Garmin Mapsource 6.14 hooked up to my 60C. If I hook up the GPSr to the laptop and acquire signal will the Mapsource software show the GPS position on the map? Do I need to do anything to make this happen? Thanks, Lakedawgs
  19. Ended up playing with the registry and updating the software and got it working. THANKS MUCH, Lakedawgs
  20. Yep, it's definitely on the way (actually, it's where most people will turn off of US-31 to head to Mississinewa!).
  21. We've got special plans for Mark... oh yes, special plans indeed. And they may even include that magical fork.
