  1. Im 100% in line witht he others in this thread. I started caching on the G1 (first Android phone to hit the market), and have found 90% of our caches with it. Usually my kids are the ones using the Garmin Legend HCx. The phone gets me there almost all of the time, save very dense brush conditions.

  2. Hi all. I'm headed home to the Bay Area for a week, and I'll be splitting my time up between the San Jose / Cupertino areas, and Pleasanton.


    Can anyone suggest any must do caches in those areas for a Seattleite? Im not going to have the time for full on day hikes, so 45 minute round trippers or under.

  3. Hi everyone,


    Is there anyone who can help next Saturday afternoon (September 18) for a few hours at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma with an informal intro to geocaching event?


    Your task will simply be to go with a small group of newbies and show them the ropes.


    Please contact me ASAP and I will put you in contact with the head organizer.


    Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon---




    Oh no. We missed out on this as well. <_<


    Put us on the "willing to help out list" for next time.

  4. Around here in the Pacific Northwest we YOU use a machete. Its a must have geo-tool around here. I been in places where the grass was taller than 7 feet.


    I better not catch you using one of those around my cache. :(


    I know for a fact Ellilydan would frown on anyone using a machete also. :unsure:


    Doesnt using a machete make it easier to take your next victims head?

  5. The only prize most FTFs want is a blank logbook. I suggest taking the money you would have spent on the FTF prize and spruce up the contents for everybody.


    Ive picked up a couple of these for a couple of puzzles we are working on. Its an inexpensive trinket, but still something special. Putting it in a puzzle, or something off the beaten path will make it a fair game for those fighting the ftf hounds.

  6. The wife and I use G1s as our primary caching devices. Theyve gotten us about 95% of our finds. The only time we have had to pull out a secondary GPS for our own use (usually its just something for the kids to play with when we're out) is when we were far enough out of T-Mobiles network that it couldnt log into Google Maps due to no network connection. Otherwise our phones are within a few feet of the GPSr.

  7. I have a used Legend HCx but the rubber gasket is separated from it. Just Google search "Legend HCx gasket" for a description of the problem. If you can repair it, it's yours for $70, including shipping. It'll have the box and software.


    This GPSr is no longer available for sale.


    Since there is no thread for actual trading feedback, I'll post here (as its related to the above posts).


    Received the Legend HCx today. Great shipping time, great price, and product exactly as described (maybe a little bit better!).


    Thanks Jadefalcon. You're an ace trader/seller in my book.

  8. We are selling off our Delorme PN-20 that Santa brought for Christmas this year.


    The unit is in almost perfect shape, having been used as a back up to our Android based primary cache. It was only been used when the kids came along, so roughly 10-12 times in the last 6 months.


    We will include the box, as well as all discs and cables that came with the unit originally.


    Asking $80, including priority mail shipping from the Tacoma WA area. Paypal preferred.


    edit: bah, botched the subject line format. mods, feel free to add an FS at the beginning.

  9. I have several caches in western Washington that need minor maintenance, but I am now living in California with my new husband. My parents were maintaining them while I'm gone but will be in Europe for the summer. I would love it if someone can please help maintain these for me until I am able to return to do it myself. I would appreciate it very much if someone could help me out! There are only a few sites. I will send you the things to repair it and replace via mail if you would like. Thank you for your time!


    Happy Geo-Hunting!


    We'll be happy to help with Home Sweet Hut, should it need repair, as its but a stones throw from us. The caches along 410 are a bit too much of a hike for us to volunteer.

  10. Call the non emergency line to your local PD, they would have the answer.


    Unfortunately, if you do that, then ask a different LEO, you are very likely to get differing answers. For S&Gs I asked the King County Sheriff at my wifes work about texting when stopped at a light, and he said it was perfectly fine. The Washington State Highway Patrol has gone on record stating the opposite. I think this one is very unfortunately up to interpretation of the individual LEO.

  11. I still have some 50 cals if you are interested. I dont recall seeing an PMl from you. Go ahead and shoot me another one and we can discuss it. For any others, if you are interested in any cans, I have about 80 left.


    Picked up today. Thanks so much, Nick!
