  1. It just so happens that we are hosting a family reunion in Brown County SP this coming weekend. I will spend some time evaluating the campground to see which area and which campsites will work best for our group. I will have a list of recommended camp sites and I will keep everyone informed of when we should reserve them. We should begin the reservation process approximately six months before the picnic. The good thing about the time of year that we are having the picnic is that Labor day is over and the kids are in school. A lot of the camping crowd will be done by then for the year. Also it is too early for the fall color crowd. I believe we can get a large group in there pretty easily. I will keep you all posted as to what "the plan" is.
  2. The date is perfect for us! We are there! Gee, I wonder what we will be doing on Friday evening before the picnic?
  3. I don't know anything about your gps, however I own three Garmin's that I really like. What I do know about gps in general though is that NONE of them are going to put you within inches of a cache. When I am seeking a cache I get as close as I can, usually within a few feet of the coordinates, then I stick the gps in my pocket and start searching. I assume that with the margin of error for my unit, combined with the margin of error for the hiders unit will probably have me searching a fifty foot circle for the cache. There are so many variables that accuracy to inches is impossible. So you might just be expecting too much from your gps.
  4. Come on down to Madison this weekend for what will be a great event! Consider yourself invited! InGeo Fall Picnic Official Picnic Web Site InKy Geo - Campfire Meet & Greet
  5. The InGeo fall picnic is going to be a lot of fun. Besides the event caches for the actual picnic event, the picnic planning team has hidden about 35 additional caches in the Madison IN area. Madison Indiana will be the place to be this coming weekend! Come out and join us! 2005 InGeo Fall Picnic Official Picnic Website InKy Geo - Campfire Meet & Greet
  6. We do this a lot and what we usually do is run a PQ for the destination area. I usually go wide enough to get the park and the surrounding area. I probably run a 10 or 15 mile radius. We seldom cache along the way unless we are stopping to spend a night somewhere. Dragging a thirty three foot trailer along makes parking a challenge sometimes. Have fun!
  7. For the money it is real hard to go wrong with the Legend. We own two of them and they work great for us. We have been using the Legend for several years now. I am also a huge GSAK fan.
  8. I have owned both and use the Legend now. There is so little difference between the two from a price standpoint that it really doesnt make a lot of sense to get the basic etrex. The basic model may meet your needs today but as soon as you are ready to download waypoints directly to the unit and or use maps you will appreciate the Legend. The Legend does come with a basic highway map preloaded. So it is useful from that standpoint right out of the box. Aslo after you spend a couple of hours searching the wrong location because you manually entered a coordinate wrong, you will really appreciate having a cable to load the waypoints via the computer. I'll bet I am the only one that has ever made a mistake manually entering a waypoint!
  9. Its getting close now! We are sure looking forward to going to this picnic. We are going up on Friday and camping for the weekend. Are you going to be there? We hope to see you there! 2005 InGeo Fall Picnic Cache Page Official Fall Picnic Web Page Friday Night Camp Fire Event
  10. Hey, I got my Charter Member Steak-knives today!
  11. There really is a bunch of cool stuff & features that we get as Charter Members. But part of the deal is that we can't tell anyone what that stuff is!
  12. Thank you Southdeltan. I knew it must have been discussed by now. I copied the question and the response from Jeremy below. QUOTE (TerryDad2 @ Aug 18 2005, 12:00 PM) In reading through the posts, I didn't see what would actually happen to events and CITOs. I only saw restless fuming. QUOTE (Jeremy) Probably because the answer is "nothing".
  13. I am sure that this has been discussed by now, but I can't seem to find it. If Geocaching.com is going to contain only caches that are defined as a hidden container with a log book. And eveything other than that is going to be listed on Waymarking.com, then where does that leave Event Caches?
  14. You know? I think the NBA might be next. Lol... forget that, go for NASCAR!!!
  15. Are you a pessimist by nature? The End of Geocaching... give me a break!
  16. I think this is going to be great stuff. My family likes to travel in our RV as much as we can. We have used Geocaching while traveling to help us find interesting places to visit while enroute and at our destination. To me Waymarking is going to a great tool for anyone traveling to a location and needing to find detailed information about that area. I think that Waymarking is going to bring a lot of people to the table to use this information. I know that you are going to see many members of the RV community come across to use this information as well as share their knowledge. I am looking forward to using and contributing to Waymarking as it grows. Camping Hoosiers Memphis, Indiana USA
  17. I am good with using the newsgroup method of selecting categories. I also like using maybe 1/2 favorable voting on selection. I am also ok with Groundspeak reserving the right to veto. Looking forward to seeing how this will all work.
  18. A little more in-depth reading of the Waymarking forums have shown that there will not be "sub" catagories.
  19. Looks like we have several suggestions for campsite info. World Class Campsites, Hike in & Bike in Camps, etc. Can there be sub-catagories? Maybe a Campground catagory, then subs for the various kinds of campgrounds that folks are interested in? Camping Hoosiers Memphis, Indiana USA
  20. As an avid RV'r one of the things that we really need is a data base that contains detailed information about various campgrounds. I see that we have a catagory for "free" RV camping spots. I hope that we can add one for all RV parks and campgrounds. I would be glad to do the admin on it if it helps. Regards, Camping Hoosiers Memphis Indiana USA
  21. Clyde, As I sit here this morning... working with GSAK to manage my gpx files and export to a half a dozen different kinds of applications. I remember back a couple of years when I used many different applications to do the same things and it took a tremendous amount of time and tweaking to get it all to work. Thank you for GSAK!! Jeff'
  22. Well... I am ashamed to admit it but here goes... <Standing Up> Our name is Camping Hoosiers and we are tupperware addicts!
  23. Wow, this thing is really taking off. It looks like there is going to be a campground full of folks coming to the picnic. We are going to have a little get together on Fiday evening in the campground. Please stop by and see us if you have a chance. InGeo Friday Night Campfire - Meet & Greet Event
  24. We had a fantastic turnout. 72 people were in attendance. Thanx to all who came out to wish InKy a happy birthday. I hear that BUTTERNSKI are doing a InKy Ice Cream Social event for July. Keep an eye out for the cache page.
  25. I just happen to have one and will be dropping somewhere in Clark County this coming week.
