  1. FWIW: NZ is home to the first geocacher with an implanted trackable (that's me). Would love to interview you about your trackable book series for our geocaching blog www.notaboutthenumbers.com. Is it okay if I send you some questions by email, Mattea?
  2. Thanks for the link to our INATN website, MissMaygen. YvetteM88: As much as my brother Cumbyrocks offers some great advice in that post, I'm the iPhone user of the two of us - and you can't go past the full Geocaching app by Groundspeak. It is a little pricey but quite frankly it's also the easiest geo-app to use. I don't bother with anything else these days (despite the fact I own a proper handheld GPSr). As for its accuracy: Some days the iPhone beats my Garmin Oregon hands down, especially under heabvy tree cover.
  3. Hilfe!?@! Ich brauche die Dienste eines Leipzig geocacher ... Mein Team Four Corners versucht zu vervollständigen britischen Multi GCRBP2 The Magnificent Journey. Dies erfordert Besuch neun Standorten - von denen der dritte ist irgendwo in Leipzig. Sobald wir es zurück zu den letzten in Dorset, ist jedes Teammitglied Anspruch auf eine auf den Cache zu finden (und zu einem meiner Es geht nicht um die Zahlen geocoins) beträgt. Wenn Sie daran interessiert zu beteiligen (und verdienen weitere smiley) werden, PM mich oder hinterlassen Sie eine Nachricht unten. Apologies for the poor translation above. Here is my request in English as well: Help!@?! I need the services of a Leipzig geocacher ... My team Four Corners is trying to complete British multi GCRBP2 The Magnificent Journey. This requires visiting nine locations - the third of which is somewhere in Leipzig. Once we've made it back to the final in Dorset, every team member is eligible to claim a find on the cache (and get one of my It's Not About The Numbers geocoins). If you're keen to be involved (and earn another smiley), PM me or leave a message below.
  4. Help!@?! I need the services of a Cyprus-based geocacher ... My team Four Corners is trying to complete British multi GCRBP2 The Magnificent Journey. This requires visiting nine locations - the fourth of which is somewhere in Cyprus (sorry I can't be more specific right now). Once we've made it back to the final in Dorset, every team member is eligible to claim a find on the cache (and get one of my It's Not About The Numbers geocoins). If you're keen to be involved (and earn another smiley), PM me or leave a message below.
  5. Do you know which cache is was, Oxford Stone?
  6. Try this fix: http://www.notaboutthenumbers.com/2012/01/19/samsung-galaxy-s2-gps-problem-solved/
  7. Don't forget NZ's oldest cache - and the 5th oldest active cache worldwide - GC46 in Wellington ...
  8. Of course, if you delayed - or extended - your trip until October 2012 you could attend New Zealand's first MEGA event to be held in the South Island city of Dunedin over the Labour Weekend public holiday. For more information, see http://www.gps.org.nz/geocaching/mega2012
  9. Check out the Are You Too Sexy For Your Cache? article about Doctor A's contest in geocaching blog It's Not About The Numbers. And cast your vote for which sibling contributor should have to enter.
  10. Check out It's Not About The Numbers post on this great Snoopy geocoin here ...
  11. Thanks for your kind words, Lone R ... And keep your eye out for a special crossover post on INATN soon: Renzo is currently writing one of his famous geoswag tutorials for us.
  12. Greek geocacher R10n made a rotary telephone puzzle cache recently; which was featured on geo-blog It's Not About The Numbers. I know it doesn't use a mobile phone but it might give you some ideas, CacheJunkies. Alternatively, could you programme your pre-paid mobile to just dial one number? At the other end, you could have a recorded message giving the co-ordinates or puzzle hint. On the same lines, you could record that message on a prepaid SIM and let the cachers call it from their own cellphones. I've also heard of a puzzle cache in a public phone booth. You enter the booth, lift the handset and if you've dialled the correct number, the cache then drops down from the bottom of the payphone housing. Andronicus: What about a plastic SD/SDHC/XD memory card case? Tested it against my phone's battery and it's just a fraction smaller on all sides. Saw one of these used as a nano cache in my hometown a while back.
  13. Yes please ... Love to see the 'Holy Grail' of geocaching up close. You can count It's Not About The Numbers in for help with your campaign. Apty: OCB stands for the Original Can of Beans, the first trade item - and only remaining relic - from the Original Stash cache hidden by Dave Ulmer, the father of geocaching, in May 2000. It was later unearthed by cacher Team 360, who now tours the world with this legendary artefact. You can read more about this subject - and from tomorrow an interview with the OCB's owner - at It's Not About The Numbers.
  14. Any tips as to what lettering I should use?
  15. Quick query: Is there any interest in an event cache at Otaki Maori Racing Club on February 28th? There's a race meeting on that day so it should be a good family day out. Club organisers are happy for us to use the facility for such an event. If there's enough iresponse, I'll list it and begin working out cache hiding places.
  16. GC46, last found just over a week ago! Thanks a lot, GSVNoFixedAbode
  17. Live in Wellington City and could probably still be considered a noob. Was introduced to sport by my brother CumbyRocks in Dunedin, who's find tally makes mine look pitiful. PS: While I'm here, RobNZH - do you know of the Wainui cache that's supposed to be the sixth oldest in existence worldwide? All I know is that it was hidden on May 26, 2000. Is it still active?
  18. Seeking a card-carrying Nelson member who can help me out ... Newish American movie Find Me is running a promotional Jr Woodchuck Card Cache contest, whereby it sends out special plastic cards worldwide for fans to find. Only two are hidden in New Zealand, both in Nelson. Card No 1 is at S 41° 15.9520 E 173° 16.8080 Appears to be on the waterfront between Queen Elizabeth II Drive (SH6) and Akersten St Card No 2 is at S 41° 15.8390 E 173° 8.3360 In an area of forest/trees nearing the coastline, midway along the ocean side of Rabbit Island Would somebody be able to check out one or both of these locations for me to see if the card/s are still there? If yes, I'd pay to have one mailed to Wellington so I can further its travels. http://www.findmethemovie.com/jrwoodchuck
