  1. Refreshing the page does nothing for me except show the error page again.
  2. I've been getting the same error code when I try to submit a location for my 2nd Adventure Lab. I've tried sending them (HQ) an email but they haven't responded in the several days since (yeah, "typically responds within 24-48 hours", my eye!)
  3. I agree, being able to map them when found would be helpful.
  4. These are from my stats page - I don't know if you found any recently if they'd be added to the count, but this is what mine looks like: Try going here to find/log them: https://www.geocaching.com/mark/
  5. OK, so if I'm understanding correctly, If my friends and I (WildSpirit-Wolf, FlyBoy7292) go out on each Monday and Tuesday (our only days off from work) and find at least 2 (or more) caches each week, then we can get the Souvenir, right?
  6. I know this is an old thread, but I have sad news......Gary (Burt_Gummer) passed away earlier this year. Several of his caches have been adopted by other local cachers. I liked Gary - he will be missed. He had a mini series of hides called the "Graboid" series - Guess one of them finally got him! RIP, Gary/Burt!

  8. OK, maybe I should rephrase my original a bit - the suggestions can be humorous, as long as they're respectful at the same time.
  9. Curiosity question: When someone on Police/Fire departments passes away (or gets killed), they call it their "Last Call". When an Amateur Radio operator passes, they call it "Silent Key" ("SK"). If someone in the Navy's Submarine Service passes, it's "Forever On Patrol". What could we in Geocaching call it (being respectful, of course, no joking) when a Geocacher passes away? I mention this because we in the northern AZ community recently lost a very nice person with some great caches, Gary Jones ("Burt_Gummer"). Again, respectful suggestions only.
  10. If you're referring to the setting that controls whether the "Recently Viewed Caches" section is displayed on your profile page, that setting was removed some time ago. Other than using third-party software to "tweak" the page manually, there's no way to hide that section at this time. .....And this was done because.....????
  11. I'm attempting to remove the "recently viewed" checkmark I had made on my profile settings previously, but the site won't let me scroll down that far in the settings. I can tell there's supposed to be more (shows just above the bottom of the page where the "Contact us", etc links are, but I can't access any further than that. Assistance?

  12. How about if I can't attend a Mega (e.g., Yuma, AZ) to find one, but would like to try placing one. How do I go about it (link to a form, etc.)?
  13. Haven't you seen all the threads of cachers asking for this? I'd prefer being able to rearrange them in whatever order the user chooses, in addition to hiding them if they so choose.
  14. I'm in Prescott, but occasionally, I have to go to the VA Hosp. in PHX for appointments; send me the (approx.) coords (via GC.com) & the next time I'm in that area, I'll go look for it & retrieve it for you.
  15. I used to use TextMarks from my 'dumb' phone (before I upgraded to a smartphone) for logging a cache. Works like Field Notes - in fact, once it's linked to your GC.com account, it uploads them to your Field Notes, but you have to be a Premium Member at GC.com to use it.
  16. I use Mac Caching which is super simple if all you want to do is load caches or pocket queries onto your GPS. For anything else I usually use my Windows box to load GSAK. Some people on here have had success loading GSAK using WINE on their Mac but I have yet to try it. It works well in a virtual machine like VMWare Fusion or Parallels. Using Maccaching, is it possible to load individual caches to the GPSr (regardless of manufacturer) akin to GSAK on a Windows platform?
  17. Going to try to make it next year; hopefully, my car won't break down (again - not anyone's fault here, just mentioning).
  18. Still $338.99 more than I can afford right now (LOL)
  19. Have you tried using the 'zoom' on the GPSr and zooming-in on your current location? Most GPS units default to a specific zoom level when you first turn them on & acquire the satellites. Although I don't own an eTrex 20 and I'm not really familiar with it, based on the photos I see on Garmin's website, I would guess that the zoom buttons are located on the left side, near the top, like they are on the eTrex (Yellow) and the eTrex Legend H & HCx.
  20. Not long ago, I bought a Rino 120 from a fellow cacher; the unit worked fine (normally) for quite a while, despite a cracked screen bezel. When I bought it, they also included the serial cable (4-pin DIN) and the serial-to-USB adapter and the software for it. The software installed in my laptop (or seemed to), but when I plugged in the cable to the adapter (I forgot the manufacturer) and then to my laptop, it wouldn't accept it; wouldn't connect. According to the people I bought it from (yes, they're very trusted cachers; he's also a balloonist & was using it because of the radio), it worked just fine in their computer, running Win 7 - mine has Vista Home Basic. I've since sent the unit in to Garmin for out-of-warranty repairs (replace the screen & antennas), but as I said, I misplaced the original serial cable (I still have the adapter, though). Are there any serial-to-USB adapters out there that I could get (I've since 'misplaced' the original serial cable, so I'll have to get another one of those, too) that would be compatible with USB 2.0 (my laptop's pretty old - Acer Aspire 5315)?

  21. WGS84 style for your GPSr: N39°33.083 W088°37.333 the "-88.xxxxxxx" means WEST longitude I hope that helps you! Mike Belanger
  22. I think you mean the "Geomate, Jr." from Apisphere. I have one, too, for whenever I happen to be caching with friends who have (a) young child(ren) along. I don't know this for a fact, but the last I heard is that Apisphere is no longer (as of August, I think) providing updates for the unit. It does not have maps, and it only displays Traditional Caches, not Multi's, Puzzle/Mysteries, or any other types of caches. I originally started with a $100 Garmin eTrex (yellow); it's a basic unit and doesn't support additional maps either, but it's inexpensive and will help to get you (and your daughter) your first few finds (mine got me to around 150 or so before I was able to upgrade to a slightly more expensive unit, the eTrex Legend [blue case]).
  23. I have an iMac and I just found a nice app for it that seems to work (almost) exactly like GSAK does on Windows. It's called (DUH!) "iCache"; it's a $15 app from the App Store. I'm still learning how to use it on the Mac, but so far it has a number of GSAK's same features (cache page lookup, description lookup, etc.)
  24. I've never played Wherigo, I've been just a 'plain' 'cacher, but I got the app on both my iPad2 (WiFi-only) and my iPhone 3G (also WiFi-only at the moment; no phone service). It seems that the closest ones are 50+ miles away, mostly in the Phoenix area. I'm about 99 miles NNW of there and about 85 miles SSW of Flagstaff. Since I've never played, I don't really know how to create one, otherwise, I'd do that in this area (known locally as "Ravenland Geo-Amusement Park" - LOL) so others here also do Wherigo's. If I have the apps on the iPhone/iPad AND on my GPSr (Garmin GPSMap 60CSx), would the 2 or 3 of them combined allow me to play? Mike B. AeroMechAZ
  25. Dayumn! Remind me not to go 'caching in the SLC area!! Just kidding.
