  1. After I found a Geocache at Bayou Segnette State Park in Westwego, Louisiana, I stop to eat lunch nearby (Segnette Landing). Behind the restaurant is a canal and I was able to take this picture of an alligator. Don't worry, I was a safe distance away.
  2. If it wasn't for Geocaching, I would have never known that there was a nudist park in the New Orleans area (Indian Hills Nudist Park in Slidell, LA). There is a new one place there (I found the old one that was there a few years ago) that I need to find.
  3. I know when I was in Memphis, TN, I did take a Uber to Shelby Farms Park to do some Geocaching there (I found four in Memphis, three of them was at Shelby Farms Park). I am glad I did because I got to see some bison for the first time (they were a whole lot bigger than what I thought they would be). If it wasn't for Geocaching, I would never known that there was bison at the Shelby Farms Park. I could rent a car if I am planning on doing a Geotour. Another option is that I am willing to take Uber to an area that have a lot of Geocaches or an area that have something interesting that goes with the Geocache.
  4. I took my first Amtrak trip from New Orleans, LA to Memphis, TN. I love the Amtrak trip and enjoy Memphis. I was able to find four geocaches in Memphis. I was wondering if there are any towns or cities that Amtrak stops in that I should consider going to for Geocaching? Either to do a Geotour, find a really cool Geocache, or because there are plenty of Geocaches in the town/city.
  5. I am planning on visiting Memphis, TN in June 2021 for five days. I will not have my car with me since I will be taking the Amtrak train from New Orleans to Memphis. I will be staying at the Best Western Plus Gen X Inn located at 1177 Madison Ave, Memphis, TN. Any advice on what Geocaches I should try to find? And advice on how to get to the area (public transportation, taxi, est.)?
  6. I went for a hike (I already found the Geocaches on trail so the hike was for fun and exercise) and saw a rattlesnake on the trail. I did not get anywhere near it (closest I got was between 20 and 30 yards). I waited for it to crawl away before continue walking on the trail. Since I know there are Geocaches in the area I was hiking, it got me to start thinking more about Geocaching in areas where snakes should be expected. What steps should I take to reduce the ricks of snakes while Geocaching?
  7. Heart of Louisiana Special - Exploring Our State Parks - Segment 1 There is a news documentary airing in Louisiana about Louisiana State Parks. It will air in different segments. When I watched the first segment, they did mention Geocaching.
  8. I bought the Geocoin-Pathtag book and a few inlays from Space Coast Geo-Store. Before I start putting in the book, I am wondering if you could give any advice? Do you activate the geocoins or not before putting them in the book? Most of the Geocoins I have came with a piece of paper with the activation code. Should I keep that or just throw it away?
  9. I am going on a cruise out of Miami, FL to go on a cruise on the MSC Seaside (April 18, 2019 to April 25, 2019). I am flying into Miami, FL on American Airlines the day before my cruise. Of course, I am wanting to bring my GPS so I can do some Geocaching in Miami and while I am in port. Are there any rules I should know about with flying with a GPS or are GPS something that airlines usually don't care about?
  10. I do want to add that I bought the Geocaching Trail Cards that explains what Geocaching is. I keep a few in my wallet. One of the reasons is that I was born with a speech impediment and if I am ever stopped by the police, I can give them a card to help me explain to them what I am doing.
  11. Does anybody else Geocaches with family? And my family, my mom and I both Geocache (we have separated accounts). Sometimes we do it together and sometimes we geocache by ourselves. Now my oldest niece and nephew have Geocache with me on occasions and have geocache with my mom on occasion. But they don't have their own accounts yet.
  12. Thank you for your response. I finally got it downloaded to my GPS. I had to used another web browser. It would not work for me with Internet Explorer but it would work with Microsoft edge.
  13. I don't know if I am doing something wrong or if there is something wrong with my computer/GPS. But I have tried doing that over and over again and it still doesn't work.
  14. I am trying to download the Geocaches from the Houma Travel GeoTour (GT53). I own a Garmin eTrek 20x. Can somebody give my some advice or directions?
  15. I have two nieces and one nephew. My oldest niece and nephew (brother's two kids) are 9 years old and 8 years old (there birthdays are in a few months) and my youngest niece (half-sister's daughter) is 4 years old (her birthday is also in a few months). I do try to spend time with them doing something special with them (going to zoos, aquariums, insectariums, parks, est.). Do you have any advice with Geocaching with kids, especially the oldest two? I live closer to my brother and his family.
  16. I am going on a 7 day cruise out of New Orleans on the Norwegian Breakaway (Norwegian Cruise Line and I leave on March 31, 2019). I am planning on bringing my GPS (etrek 20x) with me so I can do some Geocaching while in port. Have anybody have any problems bringing a GPS with them on a cruise ship with Norwegian Cruise Line? I did not see it on the Prohibited Items List but I would feel more comfortable double checking with other Geocachers.
  17. Has anybody else ever had a dream about Geocaching? This weekend, I am planning on attending Geocaching events at Chicot State Park in Ville Platte, Louisiana ( GC7H7KE). So my dream last night, I was at the gathering and a group of us went to find a geocache. Instead of finding the geocache, we found a treasure chest full of gold coins near the lake.
  18. I haven't try yet, but hopefully it will work when I try to download Geocaches to my GPS (Etrek 20x).
  19. I might be in the minority, but I don't mind micros and nano's, especially if it brings me to an interesting area and/or if it is hidden in a creative way. In Houma, LA, I found a micro that was hidden in a way that made me laugh for some reason (it was not a Geocache that was part of the Houma GeoTour).
  20. I am 32 years old. My mom (debsjag) is in her 63
  21. You might also want to go to Facebook and look up Carnival Miracle Jan 13-27 to find a Facebook page/group to join.
  22. The Etrek 20x was only a few months old at the time so I was still getting the hang at it.
  23. My Geocaching App did not worked when I was on my cruise in 2016. So for my cruise in April 2017, I downloaded a bunch of Geocaching on to my GPS (etrek 20x) and used that. When I found a Geocache, I would text message my mom that "I found (insert Geocache's name here)". When I got back onto the cruise ship, I went through my text messages and while on the cruise ship's computer and marked which ones I found.
