  1. The road from 28 past 33, the last time I drove it, was marked as not maintained. It was passable, but there may be pretty good sized chuck holes along the way.

     

    There are four caches near #54 that are not that long a hike, but would probably be too much for the dedicated cache machiner.

    Who's this Chuck guy that's going around digging holes in the road? If I see him can I run him down and stuff him in one of his holes? Then we call the guy Fill. :angry:

     

    FYI rough roads aren't as rough if drive them fast enough.

  2. That's exactly what "auto" is supposed to do. The unit compares your location to a time zone map and sets the time accordingly. Are you in an area near a TZ boundary? I wonder if the map is not accurate.

     

    You might want to make sure you have the map loaded as well. If you connect your 62 to your computer look for a file called gmaptz.img in the \Garmin folder, if you don't have one that could cause an issue.

     

    You nailed it on the head, no gmaptz.img, hmmmm. Any idea where I can get the file.

    If I set the GPS to Pacific Time why does it keep going back to Auto?

    WebUpdater saw that the file was missing and reinstalled it on the 4th try, apparently I needed to close the E: folder before it would add the file to the \Garmin folder.

     

    Thanks for the help it is much appreciated.

  4. So I'm doing a nice little hike this weekend when I look at the trip computer and it tells me that I should arrive at my destination at ~6PM, now I know I'm not the fastest hiker in the world but 9 hours to hike 3 miles. Turns out the clock had reverted back to Auto which apparently is GMT, I reset it back to Pacific Time and it worked great until I shut the unit off and restarted it where it then went back to AUTO. Am I the only one this is happening to and is there a setting to keep it where I want it or do I need to reset the thing to the correct time zone every time I use it. You would think this silly thing would know what time zone I'm in after all it knows within a few feet where I am on this planet.

  5. Is there a way to set the 62s to NOT shut down when disconnecting the USB cable? There was a way to do this with my 60CSx but can't seem to find the setting on the 62s.

    Thanks

    I got the answer from Garmin this morning and the answer to my question is no, there is no setting to keep the 62s from shutting down when disconnecting it from the computer when it's in mass storage mode.

  6. This is really short notice. I’m planning on hiking in to Bunch Lake to try the fishing tomorrow (Monday). This is a lake in the Colonel Bob Wilderness, northeast of Lake Quinault. The lake sits just north of Elk Lake, near where Ironman has a geocache hide. We came in from the other side when we placed the caches near the ONP border. Because the lake is in the ONP, I don't think you need a fishing license.

     

    The hike in is only about two miles one way, however, there are no trails of which I’m aware. I haven’t been able to find a trip report of anyone else heading in there either. I’m not even sure where I’ll be able to park. I intend to spend the night just down the road at the Fletcher Canyon trailhead, then head over in the morning. If it proves to be a bust, the alternate plan is to explore the Fletcher Canyon Trail, since I’ve never been up that way.

     

    If you’re in, plan on being there at sun-up.

    Well Dang, I'm on vacation this week but I'm in Baltimore/DC doing the tourist thing. Will be back on Thursday though.

  7. I have not been able to upload any BM pictures for the last two days, the message just says an error has occured. I too have been on the road but not sure that really has anything to do with it as both hotels have had pretty fast connections.

    Okay, Turns out I had my camera set to super duper mega high resolution and each picture was between 4 & 5 mb's is size. Using MS picture managerI resized them for web pages down to about 50 kb's to 75 kb's and they are uploading to the site just fine now.

    5,485 feet of sweet success. :D

     

    12 miles round trip 9 1/2 weeks after surgery.

     

    Three months ago just driving at this altitude hurt, now I can walk and talk at this altitude. I was told if I could hike and talk I wasn't overdoing it. :) I'm sure the other cachers could verify I was doing well. ;)

    I will verify that Fe can certainly talk while he's hiking. B)

  10.  

    I wouldn't count me out yet!

     

    I am up to 5 miles a day plus walking 11 floors of stairs without taking a break.

     

    The clincher will be can I get my pack under 25# and can I stand the chest straps???

     

    A nice warm up hike Labor Day weekend would be nice.

     

    Kevin,

    I have a little hike planned at MRNP Sept. 4th if you're interested drop me an e-mail and I'll send you the details

  11. crying.gif Look at poor me, in addition to the rumors, I'm also being persecuted by TPTB@GC crying.gif

     

    Why don't you just start converting your caches to: AtlasQuest.com, Letterboxing.org, Terracaching.com, Navicache.com or GPS Games.org, oh wait you are! Don't go away mad, just go away.

  12. I need to run up to Mt Townsend tomorrow to get something for next weekend. If anyone is interested in going, I'll wait for you in Silverdale.

    Did you get it?

    Nope. I spent an hour looking using some terrible directions but no luck. It wasn't hidden by any geocacher since the place they hid it was a high traffic area. I suspect it was discovered and removed.

    EDIT to add: someone got up there just before me and found it.

     

    It was a GREAT hike nonetheless. Three hours up and two down. Ran out of water at the summit. The last time I was here we never made it to the summit proper, this time I hiked the whole ridge. Flowers blooming everywhere and breathtaking views. Now I have sunburn on my sunburn...

     

    I was able to make a couple contacts on the radio, but the big ridge to the south blocked my line of sight to Elma, so I wasn't able to raise Kevin. I was only able to hit the repeater on Capitol Peak from one spot on the summit, but anything east was easy.

    Looks like you missed it by a day :unsure:

  13. I need to make a trip down to my caches 'A Jester Unemployed...' and '...Is Nobody's Fool' to check if they gone missing again. I'm think next week Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. If anyone wants to join me for the trip I'd love the company. Ole's Cave is about 2000 feet long and take about 1-1.5 hours to go thru. It's a couple of mile walk in on dirt road and trail.

    You know S,S&V are having an event at the Ape Cave on August 1st, in case you want to reschedule around that time to possible get a bit more participation, or not, I'm just saying..........

  14. What to say, I last talked with Brian at GWVIII and now I wish I had spent a bit more time visiting with him one last time. So many memories and emotions running going through me and so few words coming out to express them. I feel honored to be able to call Brian a friend. Remember buddy, there will always be a spot in the Land Rover for you.
