  1. My PN-60 won't be able to show me the cache description if I tell it to go to a new waypoint, so instead I just edit the cache description itself to point to the next stage of the multi. That would definitely be the preferred way to do it, but some models don't let you do this, such as the Garmin Oregons. On those, you'll have to make a waypoint. On my Oregon (450) I just press the "enter next stage" and put the co-ordinates in there - never had to mark a waypoint!
  2. Does that ever work? You would be surprised
  3. Remove the mess, replace with a new one - I can't see any reason why a CO would want a ruined log! If the log was full and readable, then offer to send to the CO, but if it is a ball of paper machie, then I would still replace, offer it to the CO in a message, and get ready to bin it
  4. 2.4 L Alfa romeo (Diesel) - still going miles to get the caches I want If people kept to their normal routines, there would be no crisis!
  5. There you have hit the nail on the head, and why the arguments about rules / guidelines seems to continue endlessly. They are a "suggested idea" for all. Groundspeak (not the GAGB) choose to implement them as rules, others don't (as far as I am aware anyway, but I only use GS). I fail to see how GAGB could make rules anyway, as GS don't HAVE to follow the guidelines.
  6. I know you don't want to get rid of the history, but as a compromise, re-use the container, and put a link to the previous cache in the description?
  7. Swiss army knife, with tweezers built in for removing nano logs. Oh, and pens. Lots of pens
  8. I buy ex-army boots off that well known auction site. They cost me £30 and I wear them both for caching and work, and they clean up a treat. I always used to buy Altbergs, but someone on my old shift recommended the army boots, and I actually prefer them to my Altbergs for comfort. Bear in mind that I wear them for over 14 hours a day, comfort is very important
  9. I am sat up after a night shift, waiting for DHL to bring me my Garmin Oregon, so will soon be more confident about having a go at Wherigo, before my phone upgrade.
  10. Can't you run a PQ, showing only those with a TB or Geocoin in it?
  11. I like the idea of them, but at the moment my iPhone is only a 3G model, and the GPS on that seems to be sketchy at best! Wherigo won't play on my GPSMAP 62, so until my phone is due for upgrade (May), I can only wait.
  12. If you delete it and then download it again, it will tell you that you have already paid for the item. Don't know if this will solve the problem, but hopefully will put your mind at rest about paying for it again! (This is assuming it is still the same phone as you originally installed the app on - not sure if it is an upgrade)
  13. Be interesting to see what type of dogs seem to dislike the good Doctor - we might be able to narrow down whether he smells like a chew, or looks like one
  14. Personally, I quite enjoy the dog related stories that DrSolley posts, and like the debate that usually follows. If it just makes one dog owner think about the behaviour of their dog when they are out and about caching, so much the better. My dog is usually out with me when I am caching, and I have seen some really badly behaved dogs (and owners!) that approach us - "He (or she) just wants to play" is the cry of the out of control owner.
  15. Facebook for me! A friend and his girlfriend had done a bit of casual caching, and they posted a photo on facebook of them with the cache. I rang him up to ask about it, downloaded the App for my iPhone, and went and found one only a few hundred yards from the house. Found the first 50 or so with the phone, but after a nightmare in some woods, went out and got an Etrex H. Soon upgraded to a GPSMAP62, and thoroughly enjoying that! Still use the iPhone if I am somewhere urban, and have some free time suddenly, but mostly I go out on planned trips on my days off with the GPS.
  16. Another +1 for the Led Lenser - bought one from the nameless internet auction site, and really pleased with it! Also got an unbranded CREE headtorch for about £4 that I use all the time for walking the dog in the evenings.
  17. Start the app, go to menu, settings, and change user. This will log you out. Then log back in, and you should see them
  18. Welcome to the addiction - great story!
  19. I've only done one, when I was on holiday in the US. Strangely enough, it was a challenge at exactly the same place as a virtual, with identical logging requirements. Used the same photo, claimed both. Can't say i'm in a hurry to do more. Edited to say - didn't even realise there was a challenge there till a couple of days later - went purely to grab the virtual.
  20. Clipper.


    A big +1 for these - bought some from the auction site that must not be named, and sadly they arrived 2 days too late for my holiday to Florida, so got stung and bitten terribly there! I wear them a lot when caching in the UK, even though the weather is rubbish at the moment, but handy for getting into water
  21. Anyone selling a paperless unit in the UK? I have been using an Etrex H and my iPhone 3, but am looking to upgrade to a single unit. I have a budget of around £150.
  22. I found my first 50 or so caches with the official app, and still use it if I am in an area where I fancy doing a bit of caching and haven't got my GPSr with me. Haven't used the other, so can't comment on it. I have an Etrex H as my main GPSr, so use the iPhone for paperless usually, until I buy a better one! Be aware though, the iPhone is great for urban caches, but I found it awful if I went anywhere near trees, and was completely useless in woods
