  1. OK, surprisingly, I succeeded in getting the map to do, but I am too spread out. Can someone 'splain me how to do what this says? Where to put it in what order of the html letters? Thanks.
  2. Wow, everyone thanks for all the info. Now I will have to play w/ it a bit. I'm not fluent in html. Thanks, again!
  3. How do you get that 'Visited States' to show up on your profile? I saw someone w/ it and I thought it was cool.
  4. Reiterating above. Needs to have a really clear view of the sky. Mine loses sats. when I put it face down on my lap in the car.
  5. Yes, I did retreive, then log. I will try next time in order you suggested. The 1st one I did was a total mess cuz the previous retreivers didn't log right. So someday I'll do a smooth one. Thanks for the tip!
  6. No answers about my 'placed' vs. 'retreived' problem?
  7. Uh, well, I guess I got mixed up on my count- it did say 12 before and now it says 11. But 11 is right. Its hard to tell cuz my list on my page is so huge w/ all these messed up bugs!
  8. Today I retreived 2 TB. In completing my logs, which I am sure I 'retreived', I found they had been retrieved and placed again in the same place by me. I went back and re-retreived, so I have possesion of them again. I deleted the 'placed' logs and in doing this my count got messed up, being 1 low now. What might I have done wrong?
  9. Where's the most uncomfortable place you've geocached. I was in AZ this weekend, a pretty state, but I don't think I'd persue the game if I had to hunt among cactus often. BTW, the 2 heaviest cacti infested caches I hunted were DNF's.
  10. I made this one real quick this afternoon to put on labels to start using on my Tucson trip.
  11. Don't quite understand this. Could someone explain further. I had some trouble yesterday w/ a TB that hadn't been travelled right.
  12. OK, got it fixed I believe. Thanks for the help, Markwell!
  13. Seems like I did all that- posted as a note rather than a grab.
  14. I had lotsa trouble too, never could connect w/ EasyGPS. Found my way around the problem- bypassed it.
  15. Found my 1st TB today- I was so excited! I have some questions. How do I make my state show up on the side of my name in log (I did write location in text)? My name didn't come up in "latest reports"- why? Also "last seen in the hands of" how do you change that? Is it by grabbing?
  16. I'll make it unamimous. I decided at REI and bought online. I got my Garmin VistaC for $325 vs $400 in stores. I'm a Garmin person, but I do have to point out Magellan has more memory capabilites, i.e. higher end models take various memory cards which, depending on how many maps you want to have at a certain time, may be a deciding factor for you.
  17. I like Garmin for ease of use. Buttons are more compact and it is easy to use. From this forum I've gleaned Magellan users seem to like theirs cuz external antenna is better under heavy tree cover. Just a nutshell.
  18. No, but there are metal letter stamps that can be purchased, and rubber stamps can be used. There's some PMC that is more liquid and can be painted on stuff like leaves and fancy pasta, or a cork form you can buy from the distributor and form shapes yourself. I was thinking that you could stamp out a circle and stamp a design or words into it. On the cheaper side Sculpey clay can be used, but the original idea was for a silver "coin".
  19. I've seen in logbooks cool stickers, like address labels, people have made and stuck under their log. I like that idea- its creative and the cache owner keeps it.
  20. I did an awful lot of research on my own, looking at websites, and going to countless places to look at GPSr's and holding them and getting people at the stores to demonstate them. At one place, I was given a Garmin brochure which was quite helpful in deciding about my wants among various features. I started out wanting to spend $100, and as I studied, the price went up to where we said, "What the heck, let's get color!". Then I found a good price on the web. My advice is not to just look here, altho the experience can't be beat, but research, research, research on your own. Look at them, hold them, study them, cuz they are complex and fun little toys!
  21. I have a Vista Color and I found it on the web for about $325. I'm a newbie too, so I won't say much more than I like it and its done wonderfully on the few caches I've found.
