  1. I couldn't care less. I'm buying goods for thousands of dollars from the US every year for another hobby and I'm used to the price differences. So what? Had to fuel up up my 4x4 yesterday, after filling both tanks it was close to 300$ - so I refuse to cry about paying 30€ per year.
  2. Dein Unwissen (auch im Bezug auf die Schriftsprache) in allen Ehren - aber das pauschal als hirnverbrannt abzutun (schön verpackt als Frage) zeigt doch deutlich, das sich der Durchschnitt der Cacher mit zunehmender Anzahl der gausschen Normalverteilung nähert. Ich konnte glücklicherweise den FTF einheimsen bei einer Dose an einer sehr spektakuären Location - leider war er archiviert worden, da er lt. Verfassung des Landes nicht legal ist. Damit ist Groundspeak "aus der Pflicht" - aber er ist trotzdem vor Ort und kann gefunden werden. Und nein, das Suchen und Loggen des Caches ist nicht verboten. Es wäre nur verboten, was aus ihm herauszunehmen und etwas hineinzutun - und auch nicht wirklich ratsam
  3. No caches on the beta map and no statistics for me either - reporting from Germany. But nevertheless I´d like to thank you for your effort to make the site even better!
  4. Thanks for the clear statements! So I´ll need at least two beacons - one for my confluence cache @ N 50° E 9° and one for my mobile travel bug 4x4.
  5. Very good point! I think like 90% of this drama souvenirs will end in Germany, where the community of a certain geocaching forum (now slowly turning into an opencaching forum because all grass seems to be greener over there) is discussing this topic over and over. In german weblogs related to geocaching the Souvenirs-feature is widely been disliked as well.
  6. Could somebody please explain the new "Souvenirs" feature to me which was introduced with the last GC.COM update? Is it something like a "Virtual GeoCoin" tied to a location which I can log, when I reach a place?
  7. Congratulations, guys! Don´l let the nay-sayers spoil it for you, you´ve done what you´ve planned, you suceeded, you had a blast - that´s what it should be about.
  8. I like to use a single bookmark list for longer trips. I plan them over months and feed the bookmark list, when new caches come up. I´d like to filter the caches manually to see if they seem like I would try them - so I don´t use "caches along a route" or some fancy GSAK stuff.
  9. Jeremy, thanks for the good news! PQ2 with 1k of caches will make things easier, especially in crowded cities and on bigger round trips (like my own though europe in summer 2010)
  10. I´m just preparing a bookmark list for our visit to Denmark in August 09 - we´ll be travelling with our 4x4 and I´d like to know if there are any caches "specially" for offroaders, where a 4x4 is allowed or even recommanded to reach the cache. I´ve found some of this caches in the french and italian alps, so I hope they do exist in a similar form in Denmark. Thanks in advance, Jan
  11. We plan to visit Russia in summer 2010 and we´ll travel to Murmansk and from there to Norway. I´m looking for topographic maps for northern Norway (North Cape, Nordkyn, Kirkenes), northern Finland and the area from St.Petersburg to Murmansk and over to the norwegian border. What commercial and what free products are available for Garmin GPS units? I´ve got an Oregon 300 and a GPSMAP 620 if that matters. Thanks a lot!
  12. Thanks for the update - I like specially the new sorting order of activities on the profile page! Two wishes in this area: - Allow more than one "home" location - Allow more than one GPS device to be selected. Thanks!
  13. With some effort I could make the OSM work on my Garmin, so I should be "good to go" - I hope I´ll go to London on friday, 6th and that there won´t be too much trouble due to the recent snow falls. I´ve collected some caches to a bookmark list near the hotel (Cumberland), near Greenwich (which I want to visit) and near some tube stations. That should be enough for some caching between some meetings and a soccer game we "have" to watch (even if I´m not interested in soccer) on saturday.
  14. Hi folks, I´m on a business trip to London in February and would like to find some caches there. I haven´t a City Navigator on my Oregon, just on my GPSMAP278. Because I do not want to buy another license for the Oregon and do not want to take the 278 I was looking for a free map of the London area. I´ve tried the OpenStreetMap map, it installs in MapSource on my PC, but when I try to transfer it to my Oregon it crashes. So: Can you point me to another map of said area - it hasn´t to be a autorouting map, but it has to be free. Thanks a lot!
  15. Could you please post some information what happened there?
  16. There are more than enough german cachers willing to provide any help necessary and to spend some days caching. Where will she go? Rhein-Main area?
  17. MagLites are evil. Like it was said before, go SureFire or go home. It wouldn´t get any better thatn that. And don´t forget to visit www.candlepowerforums.com - but hold your wallet!
  18. My cache mobil and also my personal TB is this ´90 Jeep Cherokee.
  19. My personal weblog about geocaching, jeep, gadgets, personal stuff - beware, it´s written in german language... www.blogigo.de/liska
