  1. How do I get a PQ on my Montana? I have downloaded GSAK but I have no idea how to use it. Is there a good webiste/vlog that explains/shows how to use it? One more thing... I bought the road maps but I can't figure out how to use them.
  2. Is there a way than to get the iphone app to use my link instead of having to search for it?
  3. I have a Wherigo cartridge that the owner sent me a link to (its an alternative version the main one posted). Its not searchable on the Wherigo app so I can't seem to bring it up on my iPhone. However I did just get a Garmin Montana but don't know how to use it yet. (Also just downloaded GSAK but again no idea how to use it yet). I'm wondering if someone can step by step explain to me how to get the cartridge on my phone or my montana.
  4. Darn it seems mine went MIA in its first cache
  5. I'm heading to Sioux Falls in a few weeks and then moving to the houston area I may able to help in two areas! Also if I can't directly I have friends (cachers in both those areas!). Msg me if you still need some help.
  6. I tried to do a search that would compare the Montana to the 62S but I can't seem to find one. I'm wondering (besides size and price) what the differences are in them, what do you like or hate about them? Thanks in advance for the answers! And if there is another topic discussing this please feel free to just copy the link for me
  7. I'm heading to Dubai for a little visa run from Q8. I should have 2 full days there (with husband, 2 small kids). I have to stick to public transportation but I was hoping for some suggestions of Caches to grab while there...anything interesting?! I'm hoping for more than just some micros. Thanks in advance. Also its our first time there...so besides geocaching i'm up for suggestions of things to do/see.
  8. I'm working on my messages left and trying to put more effort into them.
  9. I see them all over the place in the listings....what are they? I went to one and it was just like any other cache (including wrong inventory! LOL). Are they suppose to be something different/special?
  10. I would love to get my hands on some GPS units and play with them before buying one. I don't need to buy it from the store that has it (since I probably can find cheaper online)...but whats a good store that would have the most common GPS units (62s, Montana, Oregon,etc). Thanks in advance!

    I have noticed many people take notes of their finds. I have seen things from a GPS trail (you can see where they walked/drove on a map), pictures of the cache itself, pictures of the location, etc. I'm wondering what are the most common notes people take? Also where/how can I do one of those trail maps...I find them very fascinating! Especially the drunk bee walk at the end
  12. I always try to help their goal if there is one. Only 2 has there really been one. Otherwise its usually just to travel
  13. In other words....is it worth waiting a touch and have a few dips in order to make a grand move?
  14. Oh I'm glad I read this! I have been one of those people who grab and dip. I live in one country for a couple months so what I do when I find a trackable is keep it and visit locations with it during my stay and then when I leave one country I drop them off in the next country. I usually am good at letting the owner know/asking them if its ok that i will keep it for a month (I notify them if it would be longer) but to drop it off in another country (usually pretty far). But rarely do I get a reply! So since I tell the owner this, and rarely hear back, should I be holding on to them for a big move, and visiting on the way....or should I just pick it up and then drop it off on the next one?
  15. Oh yes, I run the PQ and have it on my phone app under the saved tab.... I used to get photos now I don't.
  16. I'm flying from chicago to Sao Paulo, Brazil for an APE cache! (and other fun things while I'm there! LOL)
  17. How wonderful of you! I would LOVE one and I currently have 3 coins. And for Christmas--- I GOT Garmin 62s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (i'm still VERY excited about it! )
  18. Are you going to place some on your next travels? Moon. Not something I would be interested in doing. But then I have already got all 21 non-military caches in kuwait and all 1 of the non-military challenges...I'm here for a couple more months, I may get bored enough to start! LOL
  19. I have had the same issue! So I'm interested in replies.
  20. I'm planning a roadtrip from Chicagoland to Louiville area and I read somewhere that someone made a PQ with caches on their roadtrip. Besides staring at the map for hours and picking what I want/don't want...is there a way to search for caches on a path and put them in a PQ? Thanks in advance for you help. (iphone GPS if you need to know.... I MAY have my new 62s by then but not sure).
  21. I live in hotels all year long (have been for 5yrs now). We travel for hubby's work. Most of them are high end (JW marriot dubai was my fav!)...anyway...this could be done...they don't clean THAT well.
