  1. This discussion is already taking place on page one in this thread. I'm normally not someone who markwells someone to the previous ten times we discussed a topic in here, but I do think one thread a week should be enough?


    My bad. So sorry to do a forum mistake. Just getting back into geocaching and trying to get info. I'll just read every post from now on.


    Thanks for the info about carrying on. I'll do that.


    Looking forward to Philly!

  2. Hi all,


    Getting ready to go TDY to Philadelphia and I want to Geocache some.




    How much of a hassle is TSA with GPSs on planes? I'm planning on removing the batteries and packing it in my checked luggage, but just curious if anyone has recently traveled with a GPS and what to avoid/look for.



  3. Norstar. I agree. Digs, I'm not sure about. From being on digs, it can get hairy when people just "appear" to watch. Puts the defenses up.


    When I said Archaeology sites, I was thinking more like Serpent Mound or Mound City in Ohio. Cahokia in Illinois, Chaco Canyon in the Southwest, sites like that.


    I agree it is a broad category, just a thought. I love to see the ruins of ancient peoples.

  4. Archaeologists also use flagging tape to mark areas they have already tested.



    Geez, too early. Usually when Archaeologists mark a site, it's by tying flagging tape to branches, and sticking the branch in the ground. Or sometimes we use the pre made flags that are on thin metal stakes. I've never seen the use of cable and flags in the field. Sorry about that. Haven't had enough coffee yet.

  5. With the way that the world is now, do you really think that it is wise to have military installations as waymarks? Not sure the guards would understand someone standing, or sitting in a car, outside the gates and playing with a GPS. Could get ugly. Just a thought. I know on the base I work, that the military would be asking lots of questions.
