  1. OK! So here we are, all waiting for C-A to tell us if Keith got the right answer, I guess! CQ, Andy!
  2. How is that a geocaching question? I'll bet C-A is plulling a fast one here. Unless Keith's answer refers to what was consumed at Quark's.... or maybe that's "draught"
  3. Yep, that's our man Ted. In additon to being Waterloo's most prolific cacher, this man has many other talents.....I have had the pleasure of tasting one of his famous home-made pickled eggs.... ....to be consumed immediately after a good day of caching, but you have to stay away from any open flames for at least 24 hours after.
  4. Olar, you hit it!!! All is well now...thanx to all who helped.
  5. CharlieZ you could try the same route on your PC and verify that you get a good route on it. Also check that under the Maps tab down at the bottom you have checkmarked the "Include route calculation data". Your problem sure sounds like your 60C is using the basemap to autoroute. While viewing the map page press menu/setup map/scroll to "i" information, press menu and you will see what mapsets are on your unit. Click on "show Metroguide Canada". Good luck, Olar Hey Olar... tks for the tips. just a point of clarification "Also check that under the Maps tab down at the bottom you have checkmarked the "Include route calculation data". On the PC or GPS??
  6. Thanks everyone for all the inputs... I have to go away and try a few things, obviously. BTW.... what is a "full reset"?? Sounds scary.
  7. Definitely have lock. Also definitely rural. But I am talking about a cache that was 5 miles away, just around the next concession, a left and then a right. But this thing had me going into Toronto, making a wide loop and back out into the country, a total distance of about 100 miles...!
  8. I have two maps loaded... Canada Topo, and Canada Metroguide. I have played around with the various options in the Menus, but nothing seems to change this problem.
  9. Just got a 60C and have mastered most of the features, etc. BUT-- I must have something set wrong, because when I do a GO TO / FOLLOW ROADS, it wants to take me on a a huge circuitous route, sometimes involving huge distances, when the waypoint or cache is actually not very far away at all. I also noticed that the proposed routing does not start at my current location, but seems to start at a point I may have been at previously that day. Clearly I must have something set wrong for it to be doing this?
  10. How did you archive a cache that you don't own??
  11. All of a sudden when I select FIND, half the icons have somehow disappeared! No ADRESS, for instance. All I have are 7 instead of the usual 10 or so. Any clues?
  12. ".. It's amazing the sorts of things you see caching at night that you would never see during the daytime. .." yeah, and I looked very closely at JC's pic up there.... you can't even see the bucket or anything.
  13. My variation on locked caches: GCTZZF Very few finders so far.....
  14. This is getting pretty close now... are we still talking about April 8th? I don't get into Pearson until 7am that day (redeye from Las Vegas).... will someone bring a stretcher for me if I pass out in the first few klicks?
  15. ".....This event is not about numbers. Numbers lead to rushing, rushing leads to mistales,....." I love it
