    Don't get me started about leaving candy.  No parent is going to allow their kids to eat anything left in a musty cache. Thows get thrown away.

    Yeah someone put jolly ranchers in a cache and they melted. I got to them in time to throw them out but it could have ruined the cache!


  2. I think part of it is kids not understanding what is trash and what is treasure. I found a stick in a cache today which I tossed aside. It was inside of the logbook bag so it had to be on purpose.


    I wish people would put nicer things in caches and seal the lid properly. I don't often trade for swag but I know that it is a draw for some people. I just enjoy the hunt. Swag is just a bonus.

    Can you please confirm that you have always been Basic Member before?

    Ahh I didn't know that I needed to be. 


    Is there any way to become a premium member without it auto-renewing itself though?

    On a cache page, click "GPX File", save the file into Garmin/GPX on your GPS. No plugin needed for that.

    Is there any kind of video tutorial on this? I used to do this stuff by hand back in the day.


    I have no idea what to do here.

  5. I downloaded the Garmin Communicator like it asked me and I get the following error. I have Garmin express.



    Garmin Communicator Plugin NOT detected. Download and install now


    Is it broken or am I just missing something? All I would like to do is be able to add caches into my GPS quickly as I am returning to Geocaching after a long hiatus and don't remember how to do that.

    Thanks in advance for all of your help!

  6. You can't look normal when searching a bench.


    And who cares if he said you were molesting the bench? You were groping it; we all do to find the cache. It's a stupid use of the term, and very insensitive - but that's on HIM, not on you.


    And you're right - muggles will mostly think nothing of it. If they do and ask you what you're doing, you can say you're geocaching. That's better than saying, "Uhh, nothing," and make them think you're a drug dealer or something. ;) But geocachers have radar vision when it comes to other geocachers. Of course he saw you geocaching - he would have looked the same to you had you walked by instead. :)

    You can if you just sit down and feel under the bench when know one is looking or kneel down and look around. The latter just looks like you dropped something.

  7. I see more and more people with smartphone apps than actual GPS's. Even if they are accurate I'd like to see these flimsy phones get soaked and dropped and still work properly.


    I probably sound like an old man. :anibad:

    No, you don't sound old at all. But you do sound like you haven't seen the combo of a Samsung S5 combined with a Lifeproof brand case (you use the phone while in the case).

    The only smartphone I ever handled was my friend's droid. I could not press the tiny buttons and I was like uhh you may have it back. Haha its probably for the best, if I had a smartphone I would be playing on the internet constantly. So I suppose its mostly by choice I don't have one.


    I'm not anti-smartphone, I just prefer other devices.
