  1. May I please gain access to earwigo?
  2. Thanks, I wasn't aware I could edit a waypoint. I will give that a shot.
  3. I am trying to do a multi level cache and have the coordinates to the 2nd stage. How do I use my 60CSx and display my current position so I can get to those coordinates? Is there some way of entering those coordinates manually as a way point in the field so I can go to it? Thanks!
  4. Wow, thanks! EasyGPS made everything easy. I've got her up and running now. We've got a few local caches uploaded and will have her test out her GPSr once the rain lets up.
  5. My mother is in town for a few more days from out of state and has brought her GPS unit with her. She has been out caching with me and really enjoys it. She would like to continue when she returns home to MO. I've upgraded her membership status to Premium (Barbara64644) and need pointers on using her Magellan and uploading cache coords to the unit. Once I get it sorted out I will help her get it figured out. Any pointers? What software are you using? Thanks!!
  6. Same thing on my iMac for my Garmin unit.
  7. The website is still showing up as being offline for me. Anyone else?
  8. There are models out now that work with the Treo 650 and 700 something model Palm phones. They take the picture and then e-mail it to you directly.
  9. Try a sporting goods store such as Cabela's or BassPro. There are also some really good camo painting instructions by hunters on the web. The stuff they do looks amazing.
  10. A few days ago I received my first batch of micro cache containers in the mail and have been hating the job of rolling up those logs. After a little trial and error I have found a rolling method that worked well for me. I've gained a lot of information here on the forums and wanted to contribute. If this is something already done please just delete my post. Anyway, I am using an old wire hanger, Elmer's glue and a pair of pliers to make this job easier. I think my photo's will show you what I've done, but if you have questions ask. Also, I might add that when you cut that little piece off it can go flying so wear some sort of eye protection. Having that short piece of wire hanger glued inside has made the job of rolling these tight much easier for me. I think it will also make it easier for people to re-roll the log out in the field.
  11. Is there anything now available since the last post in this topic back in Nov 2006? I just bought the same unit and want to protect it for the same reasons; I am clumsy and drop everything.
  12. We found our first geocache tonight! It was close to home and I was familiar with the area and figured we might be able to find it with out the GPS. It was a micro. We signed, dated it, and returned it back to it's hiding spot. Very cool! My 12 year old daughter was REALLY excited about it and can't wait to do it again. I'm tickled to have found something that interests here enough to put down the DS for awhile.
  13. howdy, all. Another new geocacher here from the Ventura, CA area. I've been considering geocaching for several years and finally decided to take the plunge. It should be good family time for the wife, three girls (2, 4, and 12) and myself. I looked today and there are several within a few miles of my house. Bonus! This weekend I ordered a GARMIN GPSMAP 60 CSX bundle, 3 geocoins and a travel bug to get us started. This looks like it can be a lot of fun and I look forward to introducing the family to this. Undoubtedly I will have questions along the way. Anyway, thanks for the site and the wealth of knowledge!
