  1. Move the cursor somewhere (just press one of the arrow buttons in any direction on the map screen). Press Mark. Scroll down and press enter when the coords are highlighted. Enter the coords you want in with the arrow buttons (up and down to change the number, left and right to change the character selected), then press enter. Scroll down and press save. When it brings you back to the map screen, press Goto. Find the waypoint you just made (look for the name) and select it, and hit enter. Follow the trail it gives you and when you get as close to zero on the distance meter as you can, start looking around in about a 30-40 foot radius for whatever the cache is you're trying to find.

    Keep in mind that the GPSr will give you the most direct route, i.e. it will not bring you along roads and trails. Don't always just go straight there because that usually doesn't work. Good luck!

    That was probably the longest post I've ever had.


    P.S. Don't hold me to this. This is the way to do it on my Magellan eXplorist 200, and since it's the same brand, I assume it will still be the same way.

  2. I am a Boy Scout and I just discovered this amazing bit of news:


    A new geocache has been placed at Gerber Scout Camp for all members of

    the Boy Scouts ofAmerica to find and enjoy. This is a great opportunity to

    teach your Scouts a amazing new skill with modern technology while on a

    unique trip to Gerber Scout Camp. If have never heard about this and are

    asking yourself, “A Geo..what now?”, then read on!! What happens is a

    GPSr user hides a “treasure”, publishing the exact coordinates, for others to

    find. There are only two rules to this game; If you take an item, leave

    something too (but nothing illegal or harmful), and you must write about

    your visit in the ‘log book’. For more information on Geocaching checkout

    www.geocaching.com. To learn more about caching or to log a find in the

    Gerald R Ford Council, e-mailMatt Hogg at mahogg@bsamail.org .

    Current Geocache

    Patch Trad-o-ree


    Placed by: Team Fire Scout (Look us up on Geocaching.com)

    This cache has been certified: Mike Sulgrove and Scott Herrick

    For those that are avid Geocachers this will not be listed on Geocaching.com

    and we ask that it remain that way. Look for more caches to come in the


  3. I have a cache waiting to be reviewed. I posted it about a week ago and the reviewer had some issues with it. I changed it the next day and nothing has happened since. The reviewer placed it on hold, and I haven't heard from him since. I have contacted him through gc.com, but nothing has happened. What can I do? If any reviewers out there would like to take a look at it, it's GCTQYC. Just kidding, just kidding... I know only he can look at it now.

  4. I was just exploring GE and I thought "Hmmm... I haven't looked at Everest in a while..." I am literally obsessed with Mt. Everest (the highest mountain in the world at 29,035 feet tall) and I want to climb it someday. I opened it with the KML file and boy was I surprised! There is a cache on Mt. Everest!!!!! It's amazing!!!!! Who woulda thunk there would be a cache on Everest?! YEAH!

  5. I took this pic near Pheonix Az in South Mountain Park. The top one is from my digital camera and the bottom one is from the same position in Google Earth. I think it really shows off how great this software is.





    Google Earth:


    I think that's great. The top pic looks a little digitized (and DON'T say "Well, duh! It's from a digital camera!).

    This cache is not at the posted coords. This is an extremely easy puzzle cache. You just have to guess my age. I am older than 11 but younger than 13. In 2 weeks I will be older than I am now but younger than 14.

  7. The following post is an amazing example of what BB Code can do for you. I made this and it took me about an hour to do. I am doing this in two posts so I don't ruin the splendor of the below "cache page".
