  1. Actually, it is possible to connect an eXplorist 100 to the computer. I discovered this since I own a 200. Go here: http://www.pc-mobile.net/mex100.htm Since it's not from Magellan, it's not amazing, but it works.
  2. "I saw her from across the parking lot. Just standing there, glistening in the hot summer sun. I knew at once I had to have her; she would be mine. Slowly I cruised over in my car, windows down, radio playing soft, romantic music. I pulled up next to her, got out of my car, but didn't say a word. I looked at her, and she just stood there, almost beckoning, taunting, teasing me. I knew what I wanted, and she had it. But would she give it away to a stranger? I was going to find out, regardless of the consequences. I began my approach, never taking my eyes off her. Slowly, but confidently I advanced. She didn't move an inch. It was as if she was saying "its all up to you, friend". Suddenly, I was beside her. I put one hand out, and touched her. She was hot, and smooth as a baby's bottom. I knew it was now or never, there was no turning back. I put my hands on her skirt, and pulled it straight up to see what was hidden beneath it. There it was, staring me in the face, only inches away. Slowly, cautiously, I reached out and grabbed it. Finally!! The cache was mine! Quickly signed the log, put the film can back under the skirt and was on my way. Thanks for the cache!" Wow. Just wow.
  3. I pick #6. Just wait for CYBrett. Paying for geocaching is stupid, unless it's for a premium membership. Then it's great. That's as long and philosophical of an answer I can give after 2 hours of homework.
  4. What are the distance rules for... NOTE: All listed as "Stage of a multi" is other than stage 1. A)Stage of a multi to a traditional cache, if the traditional was there first? B)Traditional cache to stage of a multi, if the stage was there first? C)One stage of a multi to stage of a separate multi? D)One stage of a multi to another stage of the same multi? Thanks!
  5. Well the point is to get them to the second location. Emailing the word to me proves they went there. Putting the instructions in the cache allows me to put the cache in a safer location and meet the requirements of an actual box with log book. I guess it depends on what is the object of the whole thing. Ken Why not just do it this way, but add a code word in the two micros? For even more, you could also put a code word on the cache itself. But I really don't understand, like many above me, why you need the extra requirement. I think just signing the logbook should be enough, and if you're really that specific about it, take the logbook home every now and then and cross-check the signers of the logbook with those who logged a find. That should work just fine. But I also say whatever floats your boat.
  6. It would be nice if you could watch a cache for just updates from the owner, i.e. all logs other than found it and didn't find it. There are several caches I would like this for.
  7. Lol. Thanks guys. This can be locked now.
  8. I've been meaning to ask this for awhile, but I keep forgetting every time I come on. When I try to get a signal with my GPSr, some of the bars are hollow and some are solid. What is the difference?
  9. Just like many others, I think it's TeamAlamo. ... ... ... ... ...
  10. The smallest container I've seen was the stage of a multi, and that was this: (the one on the right, obviously) The smallest container with no trade items was this one: The smallest container with trade items was: These are all pictures from google images, not the exact cache. They were pretty fun, especially the first one, which was on a black bench in an almost impossible to reach place.
  11. I like to do that too. Sometimes I even put in the logbook that I logged it online.
  12. Why would you put in your logs that you signed the logbook? Everybody signs the logbook if you found it, so why say it? It just doesn't make sense to me.
  13. What's that supposed to mean? You don't like winter??? How can you not like winter?!
  14. But it's so much fun when they're covered in snow! Then you get to bring a shovel along with you! Maybe the owners should disable them for the winter... It breaks the rule of being buried. Ok... That was lame.
  15. Your parks close at dusk? Mine close at 10, regardless of season or light levels. You mean Thomas Alva Edison? Or was there a deeper hidden joke in there?
  16. Never been climbing before, but my dream is to climb Mt. Everest. And there, it's always winter. There are actually a couple of caches on or near Everest. Check them out: Chomolangma- GCP7JV Way to ABC- GCP7K3 Roof of the World Cache- GC9A9E
  17. Going to college for math in 8th grade? I don't think I'm a nerd either. I didn't actually "endorse" the 31! over 4!, I just corrected the 6! and 4! part. I didn't bother to actually do the math.
  18. What is your favorite season to go geocaching? Mine is winter, because it's fun to get out in the snow. It's nice to go into the woods in a park in the winter and be able to just sit and enjoy nature. There's usually not too many people there, and nature hold a spell over me. It's just so pristine. I love winter.
  19. It would be 31! over 4!, because the GC is permanent. GC(****)= 4 digits.

    Website Issues

    The site has been terribly slow for me. There's no such thing as an advantage to dial-up.
  21. I know this has been talked about before, but I couldn't find any topics where it was. Some people have been saying they think the final waypoint name (GC****) will be given out around the end of October, but I don't think that's true. When I posted this, there were 322,449 active caches. Assuming I did my math correctly, we can still put out 1,357,167 caches before the last one is given out. My Math 36x36x36x36 (36 possible digits [letters A-Z and numbers 0-9] in each of four spots) =1,679,616 possible caches. 1,679,616 - the 322,449 active caches (when this was posted) =1,357,167 more caches before we run out of waypoints. _____________________________________________________________________ I'm sure I did something wrong here, so please tell me.
