  1. Ah, yes I have not checked in here in a few years. Well like it or not, phones will take over GC. Not all bad however, I would be willing to bet GC has grown substantially just due to the app alone. I have spent big bucks on handheld GPSRs in the past, all had sub par displays and very limited capabilities compared to a phone. It was just interesting to meet someone that actually only knew of GC from the app. It should not be controversial for folks the still wish to enjoy it the ol fashion way, to each their own. Good times..
  2. What device do you think most people GC with these days, on or the other OR both? I ask because I was talking about GC to an individual new to the hobby and they did not know that as little as two years ago we all had GPSRs. Personally I have used only my iPhone for about 1.5-2 years in rural, urban, desert and internationally without issue. I must say it is nice to follow my phone and using the "flashlight" on the back at the same time. The detailed maps and all the intel you could need at your finger tips almost makes GC too easy. Battery life is a none issue these days, what with the verity of back ups and portable charging options. I remember a time when a good multi cash could take days and or phoning someone for a Google was needed.
  3. I have had allot of questions and emails about the BCB parts/sets that I am selling extra parts of in another thread. Here a full unit that I am selling.

  11. Aircraft do not land on thier own... Ok... Well they kinda do, but...
  12. Agree... Not out of spite or anything but not to worried about how the online community feels about my logging habits at all.
  13. In Iraq now and have spent more than my fair share of nights here and I can honestly say it takes much more, none the less its pretty neat for the avg' trail walker/GC'er
  14. http://www.amazon.com/Whistle-Creek-Surviv...ref=pd_sim_sg_1 This is not a plug as I do not own one, just thought it was a neat idea to share for anyone that likes to keep it light while GCing and not end of the world serious. There might be several other similar kits around, if you know of any please share. Personally I keep this one around "also cheapy". http://www.amazon.com/Deluxe-Survival-Emer...d=3AWNYK5ISVO25

  16. Wrong thread I know (kinda)... Anyhow I received one "extra" Geomate Jr and update kit as an Xmas gift. I will sell the extra Jr and update kit for $70.00 Shipped "USA only" if anyone knows anyone that NEEDS one. CVGpilot09@yahoo.com - Mike
  17. Ordered the Jr from REI about a month ago, I had wanted one for months after following it on here. I finally had the chance to try it out a couple days ago. The Jr should be the cornerstone of Geocaching as it is almost perfect! Anyone who has anything to say in the way of “it’s bad for the sport and Geocaching.com” should follow their arrow off a cliff. I have the update kit as well, and plan and trying it out for the first SOON. Five star product *****
  18. Have noticed $50.00 is no longer the going rate for such a GPS this day and age. How about $35.00 Shipped Sold.
