  1. OOps...tries to hide shovel and signposts behind back...
  2. I have been Bean or Beanie for what seems like a very long time on BBS,s and in online games so here i used FamilyBean as the rest of the family actually wanted to join me in one of my strange hobbies The Bean bit actually comes from a school nickname "Dean the Bean" as my real name is...Dean
  3. Maybe the five year old went to the same nursery school my 3 year old is at..He came home and told me that F***er is a naughty word. One of the teachers was telling a little boy he shouldnt use the word and my son was helpfully passing on the knowledge
  4. Asking as a new cacher...Are the cards (this cache visited by whoever) actually for the owner of the cache or for anyone to pick up or just a way of saying i was here instead/aswell as signing the logbook ?
  5. From the guidelines you quote... I know im only another dadgum noob round here but i like rules to make sense when they are used...
  6. Given the excellent service i keep hearing about from Garmin..I would come clean and hope for the best
  7. I have a yellow etrex with a usb-serial adapter from GPSbitz UK Probably not the cheapest but they know what they are on about and mine works fine.
  8. Not sure if i can help but willing to try, I have similar setup with yellow etrex on a converter cable with driver to my laptop. Had trouble at first until i realised it was on com 8. Also found i had to start pc put usb plug in then connect etrex up or they wouldnt play nice. PM or mail me if you need any other details would be glad to try and help.
  9. My aim ?? To stop the xmas/newyear sport of visiting friends and relatives so that i can actually get time to get out and do some hunting and logging
  10. I knew i should of waited a couple of more hours to join
  11. Im a newbie on this too but....Yes you can, have a look at GSAK or easyGPS for uploading and downloading to the etrex.
  12. Just to help (maybe) i have just got the yellow Etrex and it has software version 3.00 straight from the shop with normal/WAAS/battery save/demo on the menu/setup/system/mode choices.
  13. Thanks for the welcome, I am learning lots as i am reading the forums so expect me hanging around and reading for a while Its amazing the wealth of knowledge contained in these pages, Many of my newbie questions have been answered without even raising my voice
  14. I have just got an etrex to try the hobby out and also to use in other hobbies of mine, While i am trying the hobby i thought a premium monthly membership via paypal would let me try all the features and help me to decide on whether it is for me or not. If i was the only one paying for membership and others were getting the same level of service for free it wouldnt bother me in the slightest, As long as i am getting satisfaction from what i pay for i am happy and thats all that matters.
