    NWI Cachers

    Hello All! I'm not new to geocaching but I'm definitely addicted. I used to go caching all the time but due to family and job commitments I slowed down for a while. Are there any NWI geocachers that are interested in meeting up for some caches? I usually go out caching on the weekends. If interested, my email is hmart316 at gmail dot com. hmart316
  2. Wait are you asking for help on Salz69's "...with a twist" hide on Rt 30? It's not that hard. Admittedly, it stumped me too. Why don't you email Salz? He's an awesome guy. Welcome to the game, Kniezgoda! hmart316
  3. I just saw Ryan Phillipe on the George Lopez show and he talked about geocaching with his kids. Biggest mainstream celeb I can think of.
  4. Nice to see some local, familiar names in the forums for once. BigD51 and I have talked a couple of times about creating a club for our neck of the woods, but it never got off the ground. We have never had a problem with events tho. BigD51's Race for the Cache event brought a lot of cachers together in the area. Race for the Cache 2 coming later this year should be announced soon. Keep an eye out for it. See you on the trails. hmart316 P.S. Any NWI'ers like myself planning on going to Salz's events in Calumet City this weekend?
  5. I'd be interested in learning which cache this is as well. I recently solved this cache Steganography and the CO touts that it would be higher than a 5 star difficulty if he could. I can tell you that it IS very tough, I told the CO that he should work for the NSA. LOL hmart316
  6. WooHoo. Thanks to this thread I was able to pick up the last PN-30 at my local REI for 160. Thanks hofy67.
  7. Anyone else interested in trading a Google Wave invite for a Google Voice one? I'd like to see about using Google Wave for an event.
  8. My friend (Visioncity) and I just did the Chicago L.A.T.E. Ride and cached at the same time. It was great and I think I'm hooked on doing my caches on my bike. I'm so glad I got a decent mount for my GPSr. I'm glad I didn't have to fumble around with it in my hands. I think I'm going to have to take the plunge on some saddlebags thou. Having my geocaching bag on my back was a PITB but at least it served double duty as a hydration pack.
  9. Does anyone know how to do this on an oregon 300? I always believed the distance between the 2nd beep and the actual turn was too short and would like to adjust them.
  10. Quick update: I took my GPS with me to work to try it on the Mac there and tried the same steps I outlined previously and have the same problem. Google Earth is at the same version I have at home but there are no tracks highlighted. I think my sliders are set correctly. Can anyone else confirm this for me? Also, I only pick to import tracks into google earth but it seems to pickup my waypoints as well, even though I uncheck the option for importing waypoints. And when I imported my track, I noticed this message. Shouldn't I have more than one track point or does that not matter?
  11. I'll try basecamp, thanks for the link dug-it. robertlipe. here is my version of google earth. Do you know if I have the non-beta version?
  12. I am a newb when it comes to google earth and exporting tracks to it from my oregon 300. Can someone tell me what I might have done wrong? For the first time today, I attached my GPS to my RAM bike mount and set it to log my track after turning it off in geocaching mode since I've had my oregon. Went for a short bike ride and saved my track. Upon my return home I plugged in my oregon into my mac. I copied over my current.gpx to my desktop and opened it with google earth. When it asked me what to import in, I chose routes and tracks and told it to color in my track, but for some reason it does not show up. It shows me where I started my bike ride or where I saved the track on my GPS (Same location in the parking lot) but nothing else, there is no track. So I tried importing the tracks thru Google earth directly and the same thing happens. No track, just the location of either where I started or saved my track. So I tried the GPSVisualizer site and had it create a KMZ file of my track and that does not work either. Curiously, I can view my track on the Oregon thru Track manager and it shows up correctly on the map. Was there something else I was supposed to do to get it to show up in google earth? I'm running 2.98 beta firmware on my oregon, if that helps to figure this mystery out. I hope someone here can help. Thanks in advance. hmart316
  13. This is going to sounds weird but I've come across this type of behavior twice. Once in Chicago. My log here - http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LU...8a-2bba321c84d0 and once in a ritzy neighborhood, Tinley Park. This one was so far my most memorable cache ever. You have to read the logs for both BigD51 and mine. We basically walked into a full blown porno shoot in the woods with some of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. Bom Chicka Wow Wow!

  14. I just came to the website to see if anyone else was having the same issue. I missed out on a couple of new caches in the area because I didn't get an email notification. Also 2 cachers found and logged separate finds on one of my caches but I only got one owner notification yesterday.
  15. Lil Devil you are the man! This is going to be a great time saver for me.
  16. The new caches in your area come as a different email than the weekly newsletter? I didn't know that. I am a premium member and have only received the same messages as BAPMAN CREW. I never get an email regarding just new caches placed, I usually have to do a search for caches and scroll thru pages and pages of results to find a newly placed cache. Count me in as one of the folks not getting those emails then.
