  1. It used to be that way and I downloaded the Camino browser to get around it. The Flip4mac plugin for the Safari browser appeared to be the problem. Updates have since been done and I'm using Safari (with flip4mac) and Communicator with no problem now.
  2. I use a Marmot Zephyr daypack that has a nice loop on each shoulder strap for me to attach my Garmin Oregon to. All my other junk, including the kitchen sink, goes inside the pack.
  3. I was unaware that poison sumac existed anywhere west of Texas and this is from the range maps that I've looked at. I guess I need to learn how to identify it. I've already had a run in with poison oak ... not an experience I wish to repeat.
  4. It would probably be a good idea to call Garmin support. I had a boot up problem on my Oregon 400t and the tech walked me through it over the phone. I had to do a master reset but I'm sure there is a different way to do it on a Colorado vs Oregon due to the Oregon's touch screen.
  5. I don't know why anyone would consider it a find. You were there when it was hidden so you know where it is. It doesn't appear there would be any reasonable search done on your part. I wouldn't log it as a find. Each to their own though.
  6. With "Freedom of ______" comes responsibility. Just because you CAN do it doesn't make it right. "If the kid can read, they've probably heard that word a thousand times now. FYI" You're making quite an assumption there.
  7. Money grab? Really? If Groundspeak doesn't make enough to meet expenses, you won't have your *free* outdoor activity.
  8. For gnats, you could try something like this .. http://www.rei.com/product/751955
  9. I love it when someone writes a short story about their adventure. I don't find them annoying in any way and I will read the entire story. Photos are a big bonus as long as they aren't too revealing regarding the location of the cache. Keep up the good work.
  10. I found one inside of a rock. It was a small boulder, maybe around 50 to 70 lbs. The CO drilled out a hole in the bottom that was about 5 inches in diameter and maybe 6 inches deep. He then fashioned a snug fitting cover for it that looked remarkably like the boulder itself. He also made it a waypoint projection cache. If one just rolled the rock up to look underneath it, they'd easily miss the plug in the bottom of the rock.
  11. It looks good, Nick. Born and raised in Buffalo too but have been in Southern California since 1977.
  12. I like small to regular size caches that require a decent hike and physical effort to find. I'm not fond of park and grab caches.
  13. There used to be a problem with this when using the Safari browser with flip4mac was installed. It happened to me and I found the solution to be either using a different browser or uninstalling flip4mac. Of course, as someone else mentioned, make sure you have the Garmin Communicator software installed.
  14. I'll do urban caching if I'm with a friend, but I much prefer geocaching in the San Bernardino National Forest away from any urban environment. For me, it's all about being out in nature. I'm more into the hiking aspect so if I hike several miles and come up empty, I'm just as happy.
  15. That one was suggested a dozen posts ago. LOL ... that's what I get for not reading the entire thread.
  16. On second thought, I just downloaded it and I find that the caches don't show on the map where they're supposed to be. The caches I imported in Western New York show that most of them are in Lake Erie. Try it if you want ... it's free to use for 30 days.
  17. Maybe take a look at this: http://www.miensoftware.com/geocachemanager.html
  18. I'm curious ... are you working on a Mac? The Safari browser and Garmin communicator often times don't play nice together if you have the flip4mac plugin installed. My solution was to download the Camino web browser, but Firefox will work too, or you can just get rid of the plugin. Or, you can do what StarBrand suggested. happy caching!
  19. Sometimes Garmin Communicator and the Safari web browser don't work well together if you have the flip4mac plugin installed. I solved this by using the Camino browser, but Firefox works well too.
  20. I'll second the PowerEx batteries and the LaCrosse charger. It's the combination that I use. http://www.greenbatteries.com/
  21. I never used a pole until last October when I purchased a Leki Sierra. It took a little while to get used to, but now I wouldn't hike without it. The feature I like the most is that upon unscrewing the wooden cap, I now have a monopod to use with my small digital camera. It has twist locks and they've never loosened up even under heavy use. It also has the anti shock feature that I like, and a foam grip. In the short time that I've had it, I've beaten it up and it still works great. http://www.sportchalet.com/product/301259_...by=priceDescend
  22. Thanks, but firmware is 3+. If I cant figure it out on my next voyage i'll send it back. It's not locking up. it just slowly fades to white then I have to restart. Thanks for the suggestions though! Have you tried contacting Garmin? It may be something you can resolve over the phone.
