  1. Hi, I currently have a Magellan 315 which I am happy with but it seems to be off quite a bit. I would like a different GPS with accuracy to the foot, not 1/100th of a mile. I don't need any advanced features. Anyone have anything in mind? thanks.
  2. This is a fun topic. Scariest hunt: I was not hunting a cache but rather a location. I found a trail in a nearby park. The trail is hardly used, so off I go. I'm walking on a creek trail, and I hear a noise. I stop and look around. I listen. I hear a thud about 50 ft in front of me. It sounded like a rock hitting soft mud. I focus my attention in the direction of the noise, but see nothing. All of a sudden, like a charging train, a 300 lb wild pig runs up a creek embankment toward me. A sudden wave of heat coursed through my body. Oh, sh*t! What do I do, I tell myself. But I could do nothing, my feet would not move. She stopped, looked at me. My breathing was harder. I tried not to make eye contact, that would certainly result in a challenge I knew I would lose. She snorted, and kept looking at me. I slowly looked behind me for the nearest tree. I saw one about 8 ft away. I backed up slowly. She snorted. I stopped. One more step back, she stepped forward, toward me. Then she took more steps, toward me. I knew wild pigs flee danger unless they feel threatened, and she had plenty of outs. She snorted, louder this time. My heart was racing! What was she going to do? Four little piglets ran from the creek, squealing with fright. Now was my chance. I quickly turned around, I made a dash for the tree and jumped to grab the nearest branch. As I quickly hoisted my body up on the branch, I heard more snorting, this time louder and I could tell she was approaching. After situating myself on the branch, I looked in her direction and now she was less than 10 ft away! What was I thinking? Well, what would you think? Picture time! But, my hands were shaking too much and as I fumbled with my camera, I dropped it. That startled the pig and she ran away. Whew I'm safe. After a few minutes, I got down from the tree and again approached the creek, startling another pig. Luckily this one was not up for a challenge (I woulda won this challenge as well). I thank God for my excellent hearing. Funniest hunt: I was hiking and I had to go to the bathroom. So into the bushes I go. Then I hear, 'Hey, how's it going?' This startled the crap outta me, since I was under the assumption I was alone. 'Fine', I answer. The voice says, "What are you doing?'. I reply, "relieving myself". He says, "Can I come over?" Ok, I think to myself, this is too wierd! So I politely reply, 'I'd rather you not'. Then I hear, 'Hey Mark, lemme call ya back later. Some a-hole is responding to all my questions." Then he pops up from behind a nearby tree he was resting under, and gives me a dirty look. After he left I realized exactly what happened and how it must have looked from his end. I could not stop laughing. It was too funny.

  4. Didn't know some don't log online. As for the eBook suggestion, I'll look into that. thx
  5. Not sure if this is possible, but I'd like to see if a word can be searched within logs. For example, If I'm looking for caches within 10 miles, where someone left coins, I'd like to know. Then I'd head specifically for those caches. Or perhaps as an extension, an updated cache contents section. Then a finder can checkbox what they took from the cache, and type in what they left. Click on a 'current cache contents' link, and voila!, a current list of the items presently found in the cache. Then perhaps a search on the 'currrent cache contents' would reveal the ones that contained 'coins', if that was the term I searched for. Possible? Useful?
