  1. A new Earthcache is published. You rush out, get the required info and email the CO. Do you ... 1. Log your find immediately to claim the FTF (assuming there are no other logs). 2. Wait until you hear from the CO before doing anything, knowing that someone else might claim the FTF.
  2. Is it permissible to include a link on a cache page to a video as part of a puzzle cache? Thanks in advance
  3. You might find these links about Explorer Challenges helpful as well. Explorer Challenges Bookmark List.... http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?guid=3b2bfa71-57bb-4bb1-8f83-5b5344d3bcc5 Explorer Challenges info ... http://www.pppgeo.co.uk/explorer.html
  4. What do people think about logging an archived Virtual cache? I know a virtual that was recently archived. For some months, (during which time I visited the location), it was not possible to gather certain information required to log the cache and so it was archived. However, that situation will change, and the information will be available again. Thoughts?
  5. If you've logged one of the moving geocaches, are you awarded Souvenirs for the places it visits? Just wondered ...
  6. Explore the world as you search for the cache using a GPS device or smartphone. Find the cache, sign the logbook and see what others have left behind.
  7. Try deleting your log and entering another one with the same date.
  8. We used to enjoy looking at those lists although we never made it onto any of them. Many thanks for providing the information
  9. Brilliant work, extremely useful, thanks!
  10. We logged one cache as a find without signing the log book.... We found the cache in a hole on the topside of a fallen tree, but the hole had filled up with water and then frozen solid. No matter how we tried, we couldn't get the cache out of the ice. We logged it as found because we were unable to sign the log due to circumstances not intended by the cache owner. I'm pretty sure we emailed the cache owner as well to make them aware of why our name wasn't on the log. Perhaps others would have logged that as a DNF?
  11. I kept a backup of the geocache_visits.txt file before I edited it, and the only two field notes I had were... ------------- GC2W8Y7,2012-01-14T09:18Z,Found it,"S tb swap" GC2W534,2012-01-14T12:13Z,Found it,"Left drag left tb" ------------------------ These are copied exactly from the file, so perhaps a couple of return characters have crept in there somehow? The texts appear a single lines in the garmin file, and as you can see, no commas. And I know the notes don't make sense, but I had gloves on and it was cold which is why I gave up after that.
  12. Problem solved I edited the geocache_visits.txt file and removed the only 2 entries I'd made as field notes, although neither of them contained a comma. I'll stop playing with features I don't use
  13. Yes, that's proably it because the problem began after I'd entered a comment while logging a cache. Many thanks
  14. Has anyone had a problem with the Calendar on the Garmin Montana not logging geocaches? It was fine when I first had the unit, but now, despite resetting the unit,a and reinstalling the latest firmware, it doesn't record the number of geocaches logged on any day. It does however, record the number of waypoints found (like the coords for a bonus cache). Perhaps it a setting on the unit that I can't find? Any help would be appreciated.
  15. It was probably an off duty police horse, you must have looked suspicious.
  16. Check the cache, and post a note to say it's still there (or not). No need to do anything else. We all have to learn the 'ropes' when we start caching.
  17. It's been suggested on the feedback somewhere that there should be a link to show recent changes to the site. It's a bit annoying to log on after an update and try to work out what's different, and where things have gone.
  18. The British Olympic team are training hard for the Geocaching on the Parallel Bars event.
  19. And it should encourage some more creative hides or clever puzzles in an attempt to win favour points. A very good move forwards.

  21. I've learnt that .... The more desperate you are to find the cache, the quicker the sun goes down. 'You won't need to get your feet wet' in a cache description means you'll get your feet wet. 'You won't have to enter the Church grounds' means that you'll walk right past the gravestone you were looking for and search the entire cemetery. If a previous cachers 4 year old daughter found the cache 'straight away', then you'll be in for a very long search.
