  1. I don't recall any rabbits, but I've seen a few squirrels.
  2. I started geocaching in 2004 and used to be quite excited about finding geocaches with trade items, Altoid tins magnetically hidden on public water fountains or around public electrical boxes, or other neat hides. But I've never really been all that active, typically fitting GC in whenever I travel. If I'm traveling to a new State or Country, I'll seek micros, otherwise I filter them out. On the few occasions that I HAVE planned GC excursions, I've filtered the micros only to find some micros labeled as small, resulting in minor annoyance. (If you can't fit a writing stick in it, and/or it's a log-only, it's a micro. Just my opinion.) Even though I've not been extremely active, I feel the burn-out. I've been combating that by obtaining some small trade items to plant in future cache finds. That has stirred the juices. Now if I can only find the time!
  3. I like to use foreign coins, too. I just made a run to Wal-Mart today to pick up some $1 clearance items: key chains, flashlights, etc. During a recent geocaching outing, I was a little disappointed at the swag in the caches. Unfortunately, I did little to up the ante. But that is behind me. I also found a site that sells stainless steel swag. It's inexpensive and I was able to order some custom-made pieces which I'll put in the small & micro caches that dominate the area. For the large caches, I add Transformer toys my children gave up years ago. The trouble is finding caches large enough for these items.
  4. I've hidden arrowheads and followed up on the geocache logs. Everyone who found them wrote they thought they were great. I'm thinking about putting some pocket knives, still in the plastic packaging, in geocaches. Young children will be with their parents when the geocache is found, and if the children are old enough to geocache on their own, they're probably responsible enough to handle with the appropriate respect. The packaging can't be opened without a knife or scissors.
  5. 18 states, 6 countries, on 4 continents.
  6. Sure! If you want to replace it every 4 to 6 months, these will work.
  7. As you've seen, the SD card doesn't hold waypoints. What's up with that? You can use Vantage Point (VP) to delete Geocaches from your Triton. Here's how. Connect the Triton to your PC & launch VP. Select the My GPS tab on the left side of the screen. You should see two tabs on top: General & User Data Select the User Data tab. When VP synchronizes to your GPSr, it will list the Geocaches on your GPSr. Select the Geocache name that you would like to delete, then hit the 'Delete' key on your keyboard. A box opens asking if you would like to delete the Geocache. Select Yes to delete the selected Geocache. I hope this helps. Majesty4
  8. I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one having problems getting to the gc.com site with their nokia tablet. I WAS able to log in and use the wap.geocaching.com site and was able to look at logs and stuff. Thanks for the suggestion to go to try another browser. Majesty4
