  1. i have not gotten an email for the last two new published hides in my watch zone ... Makes me wonder WHY am i paying for a premium account?
  2. a trip to GZ without finding/signing the log is a DNF. Period. Today we couldn't make a find because of high muggle activity. To do so would have jeopardized the cache ... so i logged a DNF. It's just makes sense. I went there, i didn't FIND the cache (no matter the problem) and so i logged a DNF. A month's worth of unlogged DNFs hides the fact of a muggled cache. If five people visit three times each and doesn't log those DNFs, then FIFTEEN DNFs have gone unnoticed and a cache has been out of commission for a month for no good reason. i try not to rationalize ... i log something for every visit.
  3. Ah, understood. I am a dabbler in coin magic/closeup, myself.
  4. Makes sense, ecanderson, but for SOME reason my thumb just GOES to that joystick when the light goes out. Dunno why!
  5. Please excuse my ignorance on the topic (i'm new), but what exactly is ALR?
  6. Is anyone else repeatedly marking geocaches as found by mistake? i do it at least 2 or 3 times per caching trip. It's usually when the backlight goes off and i hit the joystick to make the light come back on. It's driving me crazy.
  7. Several factors could be at play: 1. The cost of buying many nanos, vs. this technique. Not every family has disposable income. 2. They're eco-friendly as you are at least recycling a portion of something you'd usually just toss in the trash. 3. The challenge and satisfaction of making something yourself. i marvel more at these than a mass-produced Nano. 4. You see one and say "Wow. i could make that!" Then, you do and feel great about yourself. 5. Easily replaceable after being muggled. That's just a few off the top of my little head
  8. Narcissa, i LOVE your way of looking at things!
  9. So, how does one figure out what works best on their particular GPS? For example, i have an eTrex Summit HC ... are there "preferred" ways of using tags on this unit? Thanks guys!
  10. i agree ... but i'm yet to find an inexpensive, functioning compass that will allow me to open it up and put a custom image in it.
  11. Here's an idea i came up with after stumbling across a pack of plastic "compass" party favors at my local "Dollar Tree" store.
  12. When you can grasp the Nano out of the Master's hand, you are no longer a Noob.
  13. FiveDollarGuitar, those are COOL! NICE work! MUCH respect back atcha!
  14. i think so! PM me and we'll discuss.
  15. Thanks! For a minute there i thought i had to pay, but i went back and noticed the FREE option at the bottom of the page.
  16. The glue needed to make these waterproof is my main concern. Chemistry is not my strong point, so i will be watching this thread to see if any intelligent soul finds the perfect adhesive.
  17. We finally got our new signature custom swag in, Geocaching Licenses based off Renzo's Custom Cache blog. You can view a photo of the actual cards here.
  18. OK, i'm confused ... how do i use "Strings"?
  19. Here are two i made from some plastic water bottles, whose caps are considerably shorter, making for a more low profile version.
