  1. Going to a supposed "Difficult cache" and finding the only reason why is that you might as well go without a GPSr because its the middle of a cave or a dense jungle. If I go to a hard cache, I want it to be because of the hike or the clever hide, not from bad signal.

  4. "Yet another park I didn't know about!" What if its not in a park? The question was concerning ANY location that you would only end up going to because of GEOCACHING.
  5. I liked the totals. What if we could choose a interface we liked.
  6. I've done his caches. I have taken people who live 5-8 miles from some of his hides on Chinook pass. They were stoked to get into caching because of his great hides! Imagine that! A geocacher, helping a local experience stuff that is in his back yard that he didnt even know about. I'm mostly talking about "Down the Devil Creek"
  7. The Vista is Quite accurate with good signal, but not the best unit for tree canopy reception. If you can stand the extra weight and bulk, the 76S is really the way to go. It also has a external antenna option you can use when you need to pull out all the stops. The coolest feature on each of them is the compass. In map mode, when a bunch of us are racing to a cache, the Vista wins most of the time because of the direct to cache track. We are usually checking for travel bugs wile the others are circling around.
  8. Mobipocket works well for me. I think perhaps I use it a bit diffrently than some, I dont know. I've never searched for coords. I have Easy GPS loc. files matching all my mobi searches, which I download on my GPS. I use the nearest waypoint feature to see potential sites and then look up the GC # to see the details. Never have had a search problem on the Jornada 540 series.
  9. I got tired of packing around tons of printouts so I became a charter member. Mostly for this service, and it is cool! I use it on the Jornada 540. Works like a charm. I use my 5 searches for My Hides My finds and 3 75-150 mile searches, depending on where I'm going. Well worth the membership.
  10. By the way, we ride a Honda ST1100 and my Garmin vista sits in my tank bag map pocket just fine. Even when its connected to DC power cord.
  11. A group of us went on a 1400 mile tour, caching all the way. About half of the people in the group were new to, or didnt geocache. Not wanting to irritate the non-geocachers anymore than possible, we only got the ones very close to our route. We logged 18-20 in 4 days. If it were just geocachers, we would have gotten 40! You dont know how hard it is to pass up a cache when the reading is .2 miles, just because someone is hungry and is looking for a resturant!
