  1. To anyone interested in playing Fantasy Football. I have set up a fantasy football league. For geocachers only. First 12 people to sign up get in. It's just for fun, no cost involved. However, I will give the league champion a unregistered travel bug. Not much, but it's something. To sign up go here: http://meeting.fantasy.nfl.com/mp/s?l=183628&sl=0 You'll be taken to a page with information about Fantasy Football. You can sign up and join the league from that page. NOTE: Once you get to the Join League Page, you will be asked to enter a password. The password for this league is: ntgeocachers Please use you geocaching ID if available. Remember this is a just for fun league, and is a FREE easy way to learn. ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================

  3. After your cache is approved, when you go to the cache page you can upload images. Just put SPOILER as the title of the image. Or you could post the image to a site and place the url in your hint section. ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================
  4. I'm not sure what type of etrex you have. However I know on the Legend and the Vista use your toggle to go to Main Menu. Then go to MARK(ENTER). Then toggle to the Lat/Long(ENTER). This should bring it up so you can toggle over and enter the lat/long. You can then also toggle to the waypoint name and change the name if you choose, ect. After you have entered the Lat/Long toggle down to Goto(Enter). This will bring up your navigation screen which will have an arrow telling you the way and how far you are from the waypoint. Hope this helps. I didn't ask before I started geocaching and went out and found my first 80 just walking till the coords matched up (I was also using a blazer12 which only has 2 decimal places). Then someone showed me the goto feature. It sure made it a lot easier. Probably too easy Also I would highly suggest you use easygps to just download your waypoints to your gps. It takes about 2 minutes to download and setup, but will save you a lot of time in the future. ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================

  6. quote:Originally posted by The GeoGadgets Team: What is the most amusing cache name you have ever seen/found/hidden? I found this one to be very amusing: Cache, Cache, Cache, Ca$h Cache The CACHE is located on the bank of West CACHE Creek, just off CACHE Road, on the outskirts of the town of CACHE, Oklahoma. To keep up the word play, the CACHE is stocked with CA$H ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================

  8. You need the serial(tracking) number to log you have the bug. To drop the bug off in a cache, you merely scroll to the bottom of the cache log page and you use the drop down menu to drop the bug off. If you don't have the Tbug anymore and didn't write the number down. I would suggest sending an email to the Tbug's owner. Explain what happened and I'm sure they'll send you the number. You can also watch the page where you dropped the bug off at, and email whoever picks it up. They should know from the log sheet that you did place it there. ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================

You could be this guy. His cache has been around since 10/2001 and has only been found twice. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=9120 ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================
  10. quote:Originally posted by magellan315: Thre are plenty of Geocaches in the greater Orlando area that do not require you to drive 50 miles in one direction. You should consider doing a zip code search using 32819 which is the zip code for the area including Universal. I see you have done alot in the area. I was wondering which ones you preferred or would recommend. We're staying 4 miles from Disneyworld so if anyone would like to recommend or plug their own cache in a 30 mile raidus of that area feel free to. I will be bringing a couple bugs with me to drop off in the area. Thanks, John ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================
  11. To all the cachers in the Orlando, FL area: I'm looking for caches in your area. I'm not planning on going to any of the Disney theme parks (doing Universal instead). However if it is outside the Disney theme parks I wouldn't mind going. I prefer if they weren't 50 miles away from Orlando, by them selves. However if there were a few in the area I would consider it. Also if anyone in the DFW area has a travel bug wanting to visit Mickey let me know. John Thanks in adavance... ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================

I just ordered a bunch of stuff from the geocache website, but didn't see any patches. Will these patches be available for purchase?

  14. Okay, how do you post the background images on the cache page? John Thanks in advance... ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================
  15. That did the trick. Thanks for the quick responce. John ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================
  16. Who out there knows if there is an easy way to delete all your waypoints at once. If this isn't possible, is there a way to delete everything (maps and all) to get the unit back to where it was when I bopught it. Thanks, John ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================
  17. quote:Originally posted by Alan2: Did you change the Street Detail in the Map setup page to "Least"? Also, anyime you download maps, the existing maps stored in the Vista get overriden. That's normal. Alan How do you get to the map setup page? Never mind I figured it out.

  18. I have a Garmin Vista. I had downloaded detailed maps on to it about a month ago. For some reason now the detailed streets aren't showing up. Does anyone know why this might of happened and how to fix it. Also does anyone know if I try downloading the maps again, will it just take up more space or overwrite the existing data? Thanks in advance. John ==================================== "Boredom is the state of one's mind" ====================================

Selling your unit to a tarrorist and want it to be less effective. 3. H ate those crazy land based references 4. Prove that it can be done. 5. __________ fill in the blank. Fellow 330 owner.... Mark Robb spelling incorrect to allow it to be included I want to disable WAAS because my batteries are dying waaaayyyy tooooo fassssttt. I believe I've read before that WAAS will eat your batteries a lot faster than without it. I bought the unit off of eBay and it came with no manual. I tried downloading the manual from the Maggelan web site, but it's not working. I was able to look at other manuals, just not the one for the 330. John
  24. quote:Originally posted by robertlipe: You can find the undocumented waas disablement key sequence in the m330 group on yahoo. (I would give you a URL, but it's dead-like right now. Search the archives if you can't find it int he files section.) It's all covered in the Magellan 330 group... Ummm, Uhhhh, wellll. I checked it out. However the way they described it they said it could turn my GPS into junk. Does anyone know a less destructive way to disable waas? Thanks, John
