    Favorites List

    The problem I have with the 'X people consider this one of their favorites' approach is the anonymity. For example, there are several caches in this area that were designed with newbies in mind, and they have proved quite popular. So, looking at one of these, you might find 25 people, with no more than 4 finds each, consider it their favorite. The profile page approach, though it may a little unwieldy, has the advantage of offering a overview of what that person considers a good cache. If I'm going to a new area and have limited time, I'd rather base my potential selections on a local cacher with a fondness for mountaintops rather than an equally proficient person whose preferences run to tricky urban caches. This isn't to say I don't enjoy the latter, just that if I have to pick 5 of 50, I'd like more feedback than sheer numbers.
  2. Thanks!. We try to have a little something for everybody in and around Missoula. Come back when you have a little more time and get the full guided tour of the Missoula area
  3. Many of the caches in this area are in canyons and under heavy tree cover where the coordinates will get you within 50' of the cache, if you're lucky. In those cases, it is either use the hint or tear up a few hundred square feet of the terrain. In one case, though, the hint was a compass resection and referenced a prominent tree -- of the wrong species.

    Corn Maze!

    A GPS would be more or less useless. The one near Victor MT had postcards with a aerial view, so you might be able to scale it out and establish waypoints if you really wanted to work at it. Leave the GPS at home, and enjoy the frustration of getting completely tangled up in a few acres of corn.
  5. >Be prepared to have all caches within 100 square >miles of this location to be conquered by yours >truly. > >Also be prepared to have some life pumped into your >state by having some new caches placed. An easy boast, if you pick Lewistown or Wolf Point for your center point. Why don't you try everything within 100 square miles of Higgins & Front St. in Missoula?
  6. Yes, though I don't mix the two. Packet isn't too strong in this area so I haven't had an opportunity to do the PRS thing. Asatruar kj7xu
  7. I did my first few caches with a Garmin GPS II that is about 6 years old. After comparing notes with other geocachers, I realized that I was fighting obsolete technology, and got a Venture. My first two caches with it put me within five feet. The II would lose its fix if you said "tree" but the Venture so far has been doing fine. There may be better units, but the Venture has convinced me that GPS's are more than a toy requiring a perfect constellation to work.
