Become a modern-day Ponce de Leon, and venture down their coastal, cultural, historical and western trails in search of hidden treasure. Who knows what you may discover? Who is going?
  7. Hello Wet Pancake. I'm happy to hear that you like the GeoTours a lot. That makes my day! Your solution (and observation about) the GeoTour attribute is a very good one. We haven't created an Instant Notify Tool yet for GeoTours since there are not so many of these for now. There are currently 32 live in our Global Directory. Take a look: http://www.geocaching.com/geotours We do post on our Facebook wall as GeoTours go live. Those posts are often limited to the region around that GeoTour. So for example, someone in Seattle (like me) might not see the announcement about the recently-launched Birthplace of Texas GeoTour. But those in Texas and neighboring states would. As the volume of GeoTours increase, it will make sense to incorporate something into the more mature Instant Notify Tool.

  18. My personal hope is that geocaches created around Mega events that are good candidates for permanency and positively add to a visitors' travel/tourism experience to that area eventually get included in an official GeoTour.
  19. Thanks for reporting this bug. Let me ask some develop-types who know more than I do to look into that. This malfunction with the download should be fixed at this point. Actually, it's been fixed for a few days...
