  1. Thanks for the links. I had never heard of these knives now I may have to buy one. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association
  2. I usually can find one in about 15 minutes or less BUT, I have been known to spent an hour or better (sometimes 2) just because I hate to give up. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association

  4. quote:Alan2 Rather than a cache, you would really be special if you sent a note to Mr. and Mrs. Levy expressing your sorrow at their loss. I agree completely! quote:Hawk-eye Definitely bad taste ... and my opinion would be even stronger if not aggressive ... if that were my daughter or a member of my family. 'nuff said. YUP! quote: Team Dralasites I wouldn't just assume (like some of the posters here) that ikobi went into this with bad intentions. The fact that he put up this poll rather than just placing the cache shows that he cares. Are you reading this, RadDad? I think you were a bit extreme, and you owe ikobi an apology for jumping to conclusions. I really don't think anyone assumed anything. You must understand that for many of us, we believe that the families feelings should be considered first and foremost. Many of us grew up in an era that when someone's loved one was killed, one did not stick a microphone in their face, follow them with TV cameras nor try to get them on the talk show circuit. To show respect for the deceased, one did not make the sight a tourist attraction. I do not think ikobi intended any harm in the post or poll. The negative responses to these are heart felt and cannot be helped. I too feel real strongly on this issue and could go on a rant at this moment as I feel a rage building. As a member of the OFC, it angers me to see these changes. The cause of this rage has nothing to do with ikobi nor any of this generation. If you want to show sympathy and respect, do as Alan2 suggested.

I feel that most people would be best served by a cargo vest or some kind of quick-don fanny pack.....snip I got tired of the looks you get putting on a backpack in urban areas. In a previous post, Mt10bike talked about a photo vest. I happen to have a very old Banana Republic (before they turned traitor) vest that I normally travel with. While at REI the other day I found one perfect for caching and it was only $27! The upper and middle pockets are perfect for the GPSr, cell phone, ht radio (for the hams) and the lower pockets will hold your caching goodies. Yup, I bought it. AND it has enough room on it for the new patches. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association

It's cool that you've got dibs on one, and won't get charged until it's shipped, though. It is tough to wait that long soooooo, I have decide to make myself feel better by getting a Vista or a Legend to play with in the mean time. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association [This message was edited by inceptor on May 26, 2002 at 10:01 PM.]

The release was to be sometime in June but has been pushed back to July or possibly September. AdvanceGPS offered free FedEx shipping if you preorder. Your credit card will not be billed until shipment. Because of both of those reasons, I preordered. As soon as it arrives, I will post what I think of the unit. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association

  13. I really wouldn't worry about this. If they get more accurate, the terrain difficulty will go up or the hiding will get more creative. More accurate gps units will not make it easier for some at all. Some 1/1 caches almost sit in the open and some people still can't find them. I know people that can't find their own butts even with both hands and a road map. Personally, I think that kind of technology for the average person is quite a long way off. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association

Are you saying that it's ok for you to slam people but not ok for people to respond to that slamming negatively? Inquiring minds want to know.

  17. In Texas, skeeters are so big they fly in squadrons and most have thier own airfields. Most times you can here them coming in while they are still above 5,000 feet. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association

  19. I have 2 not founds. The first one was due to mother nature. I do not walk on water. The second one was just well hidden. I could tell I was in the right area as I could see where others had been looking. In both cases I spent several hours trying to either get there, locate the cache or find another way in. Both were in great locations that I would not have otherwise been to. I had fun with both of these too. I still logged them as no finds because I was unable to sign the log book. Just MHO! inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association

  21. I have preordered a Rino 120. I voted I intend to buy one but, if I like this as much as I think I will, then I will purchase a 110. I see no need to have 2 120's. You have a 120 as the main and a 110 as the secondary. As for reception, it has an antennae that is external and is "supposed to" have better reception in tree cover. I like my e-trex except for the lack of decent reception in tree cover. I like the idea of GPRS. I am a ham and have several HT's I can carry with me. The only problem is I am the only one in my family that has a license. With GPRS you only need one license. It is my understanding that quite a few people are putting up repeaters in this range of frequencies. inceptor North Texas Geocaching Association
  22. quote:Originally posted by infosponge: It would be interesting if... 1. you could enter a N/W coordinate pair on the log (like you can with the photos) and optionally: 2. have a selection of GPSR associated with your profile (Yellow E-Trex, Meridian, etc.) plus WAAS on/off status. The log page could then display the observed error between your GPSR and the stated survey control. And possibly raise the Maggie/Garmie holy war to a new level.
