  1. Also, when I read the first few pages of this post I thought your profile was going to be some political commentary! It's funny that it is just your opinion on FTFers!
  2. I tell you there is no more story to it, I never had any issues with any geocacher. But the motivation behind my profile was that I always see other people making FTF's and boastfully proclaiming in their logs that they "signed the fresh/blank log" or "found at 6:00am". And IMO saying such things is way worst than what I said in my profile because geocaching isn't about making FTF's. To some people geocahing IS about the FTF. So what? I have gone for FTF for the experience but I am over that. However, I have an awesome cache in a state park that I left two $25 Chili gift cards in (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=85cc48a7-fdb6-4c43-8b07-cf4bcff837a9) Now tell me that isn't a worth FTF? You know you'd be beating down the bushes for that one hotshot! lol
  3. Wow, interesting story! I used to get lost a lot when I cached with my phone. Even with google maps, I was so far off trail sometimes that it was no help. Now that I use a handheld GPS I never get lost because of the backtrack feature. It is always on, recording my trail at small intervals. Thank god for it! I used it many times to keep me in thje right direction both in the woods and in the water doing kayak caches. I can read a road map fine but my sense of direction is just not too swift. So I use a GPS when driving too. I have had both my handheld GPS and my phone GPS take me longer or unsual ways...but I have to say they have always got me to my destination. I trust them mostly.
  4. My goal is to get outside, preferably in the woods, and find one or two caches a month.
  5. Favorite quote in my signature. Also I like, "skirt lifting...not as fun as it sounds."
  6. I know my default was one time fee, not auto. My membership ran out and I didn't even know for a while! I renewed with non reoccuring fee.
  7. Garmin made the exchange process really easy. And for $105 total have a new (refurb) Colorado 400t! Came with all the new software updates (chirp too) and looks like new. Interfaced seemlessly with my PC and I'm up and running. I'll stick with Garmin!
  8. Are there better caches along that route? Further in? Hiking ones?
  9. Thanks for all the advice here and via email! I have now tried everything. I have contacted Garmin. I hope they can fix it.
  10. C:geo is the best Android app for geocaching. It's awesome!
  11. Was going to say the above. Good ole fashioned compass!
  12. Oh and as for many in a day. Power trail and long caching days=big numbers tried that and wasn't a fan. I saw way too many guardrails.
  13. There's a couple here, TheSnowBirdsVT, that have over 20,000. But they're retired and travel a lot. That's how! Someday....
  14. Well, Jeff seems to think it's fixable. Then I WILL fix the darn thing. It can't be that hard. I don't think it's a corupt file because I hadn't loaded anything new for months. It booted once so I know it can. It takes the reset because I hear the annoying beep that I usually turn off in settings.
  15. To be honest I don't try to be sneaky. I used to try and I just can't. I'm looking and searching and I get so involved that I cannot look casual. People sometimes ask what I'm doing and I explain geocaching. Others ignore me. Don't know what they think. Probably that I'm looking for a hidden drug stash. That's what I always think they're thinking. I'm not a fan of urban hides to begin with but I like a quick cache once in a while. If it gets muggled I think that's just the risk the CO takes when hiding in a high traffic area. Just like the risk of my caches getting burned up in a controlled burn or eaten by a boar. I know the area and what could happen.
  16. When the cache has many NM and the CO is not active. I also logged one once that was an ammo can buried in a hole. That's against the rules.
  17. I see on the Garmin site that I can send it for repair for $99. What if they can't repair it? Do I still pay? Is this a good solution?
  18. Wow, Norway looks amazing! I hope to cache there someday! I drive to caches and then hike or kayak to them. Those are my favorite. Since I haven't much free time nowadays I do a quick drive and cache when I can.
  19. Looking to buy to replace mine that just quit. I could not fix it. Let me know pricing. Thanks. chrisy520@gmail.com
  20. Anyone have a Garmin Colorado 400t they can part with? Mine is toast...
  21. I downloaded the program. When I type the DOS prompts they say invalid path. I typed them every way I could. It somehow did get the PC to see the Garmin. But when I go into Computer, Garmin it appears there is nothing in the Garmin. No files etc Same issue. It is stuck on loading maps.
  22. Where were you this year?! I would have taken the sandals off for another premium! Ha I wish I would have seen this sooner. I get all warm and fuzzy inside when a gift membership arrives.
  23. Both my travel bugs are missing too. One in the hands of I emailed. No reply. It was a traveling magnetic decal.
