  1. What irks me the most is not being able to hide caches due to Covid when everything around here is already open (restaurants, parks, etc) and when I question why, I'm referred to a post that was made months ago and is no longer relevant. I don't search much anymore, but I love the art of hiding a cache especially when I can make a unique container. Not being able to do so has really been frustrating.

    In my experience it is hard to make them stick well enough. We have one out in a nearby forest but it keeps losing parts.


    I suppose you fix it with larger parts and more glue, but I think I will stick to 3D printed ones... but not the one at Thingiverse. It has some serious design flaws. We have our own that doesn't lead water into the container.

    They are available on Ebay too.

  3. I know that tune... As someone that has more fun hiding caches than finding them, I take DNF's very seriously and always make a point of quickly following up. If that's not possible, I will archive it so someone else can use the area to hide a cache. I don't like it when people can't find one and just leave another thinking they are doing you a favor. But I also realize there are just good hearted people out there who want to help.

    Back to the tune...

    Go to http://www.geocachingadmin.com/

    Enter the GC code of the PMO cache that you found. *

    Click on the "Log" button.

    Log your find.


    * And if you the  GC code wasn't anywhere to be found in the cache container and you don't know what it is, go to the main search page (https://www.geocaching.com/play/search) and enter the coordinates where you found it. Assuming it isn't a puzzle, multi or Wherigo, it ought to be the cache at the top of the list.

    Thanks so much! I had the GC code but everytime I searched the site I was stopped at the page telling me Premium Members Only. Your link worked perfectly. Thank you.

  5. Okay, go ahead and call me cheap so we can move on. A little background, I actually prefer coming up with and making cool cache containers and hiding caches more than I do finding them. I run into not being able to plant a cache every now and then due to the area being taken by a Premium member's cache that I can't see. Not a problem, I like playing in mine fields. But what do I do when I stumble upon a Premium member's cache while hunting a site to plant a cache. I've been signing them, but I have no way of logging them on the website. What would you do? 

    Thanks in advance for your advice. Don't worry, I have a thick skin with lots of hair so flame away, just don't start any Forest Fires,


  6. My 650t won't communicate with my laptop either. It did when I first got it, but quit for some reason. I have been manually putting in coords by using 'Mark Waypoint' and then editing it before saving it. So while I hope to help answer your question, I have one of my own since it was mentioned-Does GSAK work if you're not a Premium Member?

    Thanks, SmokeyBear#1
