  1. I thought you had to have at least 50,000 finds before you could do that.
  2. DeLorme is at least still supporting the PN-60 as they've recently put out updated firmware for their forum users to test and are talking about making a few changes before officially releasing it. Their focus has seemed to swing toward the inReach satellite communicators over the past couple of years. I don't know what I'll do if my PN-60 ever dies. I've been using the official Android app more and more for casual caching, but I still prefer my PN-60 for serious caching.
  3. The cache was still there when I was there in early June. Even though we found it last year, my kids wanted to go find it again when we had breakfast there. My 7 year old was especially interested in going back to find it again since she's the one who spotted it last year. I hope you are able to get it replaced. If it had disappeared a couple of weeks earlier, I would have been happy to do it.
  4. Hmm, I can get there in just under 3 hours. Since MOGA is in Ohio next year, this may work.
  5. Thanks for causing problems just because you couldn't be bothered to do some research beforehand. Since Webcam Caches are grandfathered, old, and the webcams themselves are often delicate, I always look at the last few pages of logs to research any potential issues first. I saw alternate links posted in a previous log. I checked them out before I went, and checked them again while I was in the parking lot. I had no trouble getting a pic with the basement cam other than getting the timing right.
  6. I was standing in the dessert/drink line when I heard someone say they were about to take the picture. I thought about running over there, but I was finally in a shaded area where I could sit down and eat, so that won out.
  7. I thought about that angle since we usually vacation in Florida in late June/early July. But my kids are still in school at the end of May, which is why we wait.
  8. Boy did I pick the wrong time to eat. I missed the group photo and the wedding. I saw the bride and groom afterward. I noticed that the bride had a travel bug tattoo on her shoulder. I decided that it would be too forward of me to ask a newly married woman if I could take a picture of her shoulder.
  9. View your profile. Click on the Geocaches tab. Click on "All Geocache Finds". Click the blue favorite ribbon in the results header to sort by favorite points.
  10. The EarthCache GC177KB - Delicate Arch with 105 favorite points.
  11. This is one of my favorites. They were with someone else who also didn't find the cache but logged the find. This is before a group of three didn't find the cache but put out a replacement. I've never been able to find it, so I don't know what they think they found.
  12. Oooh, maybe it's The Amazing Steve and Wyoming!
  13. I think logging DNFs is important, so I usually log them. My logged DNFs to finds rate is currently at 15%. I log them so I'll have a record that I tried to find the cache. Some of my best geocaching stories involve DNFs. There have been a couple of caches lately where either no one had ever found it, or it hadn't been found for awhile but no one had logged a DNF. So I went looking for them having no idea that anything was wrong. Once I logged my DNFs the cache owner checked and sure enough the caches were gone. Without logging DNFs or at least emailing the cache owner, there's no way for them to know there might be something wrong.
  14. The beta map on the website? This forum is just for the Groundspeak Android App. I didn't do much with it, but I was pleased to see that the stock browser on Android 4.0.1(Ice Cream Sandwich) seemed to handle the beta map page somewhat better.
  15. I'll admit I kinda like the idea of a geocaching only social network with usernames. There's a Facebook group that I haven't joined because it's publicly viewable... anyone with a Facebook account can see what gets posted. Having said that, I'd guess that most people wouldn't be interested in it because it's not Facebook.
  16. I believe the "Auto-Post as Log" dropdown was there in a previous version and removed at some point. For the current version, you need to uncheck the "Post as Field Note" checkbox if you want the "Submit to Geocaching.com" button to immediately log the cache.
  17. I thought that I had read at some point that the app has access to Contact data so you can search for geocaches near a contact's address. Poking around in the app, I don't see a way to do that though. With any app that requires special permissions, you have to decide if you trust the author.
  18. If they could somehow go back in time and bring back the 2001 Angelina Jolie to be Lara Croft, I'd be willing to go do some challenges with her.
  19. It's possible that the person who posted the note deleted it afterward. That way you'd get the email notification and it would no longer show up on the cache page.
  20. Just for giggles I listed my caches there early on. I've actually had a couple of finds on one and one on the other. I was pretty shocked.
  21. Hmm, this could be a decent idea for an app that can make one big GPX file out of a list of GPX files. Maybe call it GPXCombiner.
  22. Hmm, the company I work for is opening up a new plant in Brazil. It appears to be about 3.5 hours from this cache. Maybe I should be more open to the idea of traveling there.
  23. Because what happens on one side of the country can affect all of us. The NPS wide ban on geocaching started with one buried cache. Which cache and where? I always wanted to know about that. I'm guessing this is one of them. The weird thing is, I don't see any logs. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=a221990c-7508-4ac3-a473-d65b6e1f8d60
  24. I've noticed this on two recent logs through the latest Android app. When I type a log out like this: This is Paragraph 1. This is Paragraph 2. This is Paragraph 3. Once the log is submitted, it shows up like this: This is Paragraph 1. This is Paragraph 2. This is Paragraph 3. If I then visit the log through the web, click on "View / Edit Log / Images" and then click "Edit Log", the log shows up as I had originally typed it: This is Paragraph 1. This is Paragraph 2. This is Paragraph 3. If I then click on Submit Log without changing anything, the log shows up as I originally intended it to.
