  11. I have only done one. How many routes can upload in a day. It would not let me upload but one route.
  12. This has been a good day. I finaly made my first route from SC to TEN. and well I am happy. The question is how many can you upload a day. I have to make a trip to Oconee SC and made one but I could not upload it today. Is there a set number?? I figure if I got to go I need to try to make it worth while. I am also looking to get a palm and figure out how to use it with my cache adventures. dwayne23

I have a Merdian Gold and have had it for some time but have not used it any where but SC and would like to use going to Ten. We are wantting to find caches on the way up there and as we go. Can someone help. We like Ten. and want to try our hand at cacheing along the way. Dwayne23 and Faimly
  16. I want to think both of you who sent me information on this. I want to learn how to use the maps on the computer and that is why I wanted someone near by maybe I could talk to. You want believe what happened at work the other day. A person who works for me came in and asked if anyone of us had a GPS and I said yes. Well he and his brothers went look the night before for a cache. No more than I know I helped him and that is what it’s all about to me. My wife wants us to hunt some when we are on our way to Tennessee and the map part will help. Thanks again and you don't know how much I mean it. Thanks Dwayne

  18. I have found a few caches but got busy working and haven't been keeping up. My wife asked the other night about going to hunt some others. We are going to Tennessee and would like to look on the way and while we are up there. I have seen and read that there is a way to map them from my house to Tenn. HOW??? and I have seen some maps on the new eaygps how do you do it. Please help.... I use a Merdidian Gold GPS. What software and what maping program??????? Dwayne23
  19. If this was a bad question I apologize. I know that if I put in the map programs on the computer they are different and if you use the GPSR it's different. I thought some of you would know. I just ask question sence I am new. I am enjoying the fun.

    Got It

    I finely got my gps. I bought a Meridian Gold (sorry Garman users) and I spent all day playing with it and my brother went and bought one last night after I have been telling him about Caching. There is one next to where he lives and several around me. He wants to go tonight and I am also ready. Any advices for me. I would like to thank every one for there help also. I need to buy some soft ware and do not know what is the best for me. Thanks and I am ready to go on the hunt. Dwayne23
  23. I am new and have been looking at buying a gps but do not know what to buy. I have looked at the Garmin Vista c, Legend c, Meridian gold, Platinum. I do not even kown how to work it, but it would be helpful to me in hunting, fishing, going on trips, and Geocaching looks like it would be very fun. I went today to get a person to show me how to use a compass and a map. I don't know anything about this. Can anyone help????
