  1. Do you really expect an answer within an hour? I think somebody needs some supervision.....
  2. I'll take it! Guess I'll have to 'splain to Mama later...... PM sent
  3. Hey, You can only hold one GPSr and have one hand free to break a fall, so whydontcha sell me the Oregon 450? Yea! Great idea, I think so too! Glad you thought of it. So go ahead and send me an invoice for it! PP
  4. Where did it come from? The reason I ask is I don't want to have a warranty hassle if needed. Could you provide the original receipt? PP4x4
  5. Shoot me an Email if you're still looking. I never fell in love with using a Delorme, after starting with Garmin. I have a PN-40 that needs to be loved. Christopher
  6. No longer available online, Any suggestions for getting this price at the store? C.
  7. I have a '40, and if I had to do it again, it would at least get serious consideration. BUT! It has been in for repairs 3 times now. Always a power problem, always seems to be the worst of times. Once when I got to Phoenix, once in the middle of a run and the first time just 'cause. It is a very good unit, I LOVE the paperless, and Cache Register is GREAT! But now that it is out of warranty, I just hope it doesn't break again. I was so aggravated at it in Phoenix, I went over to Best Buy, and if the guy hadn't been so, well, less than prepared, I would have bought an Oregon. But he didn't earn my business. PP
  8. Don't give up hope, and look where it "couldn't" be. I lost my 60CSx in some haunted woods, and that's how I got it back from "Peter". It was where I KNOW I didn't hike. But now it is lost again, though I'm quite sure it is here at the house. PP
  9. I used a ammo can, filled 1/4-1/3 of the way with cement, then a Nalgene bottle inside just to be sure. The ammo can stays dry at about 2' deep, if people are just a little careful with it. I hid a pole with a hook about 25' away so it can be retrieved without getting wet, if you should so desire. The FTFers really pulled my leg on it, He he he..... I wonder if they found the pole....................... PP
  10. While I'm sure it is entertaining to watch, I don't do caches like that thus I won't hide a cache like that. silksmybaby, if my DW sees that Manatee, I will have to get one as well. PP4x4
  11. Lost my 60CSx in the woods once, took a month and probably a dozen trips to find it. It was uncovered in leaves, so I really like the orange on the PN40 too. PP4x4
  12. 2nd the Rayovac Hybrids. I'm still using the first ones I bought about 4 years (Maybe more?) ago. Of course they don't last as long as they did, but they still hold up fairly well. Before then, I tried Energizer rechargeable, they didn't last very long though. When some of my R'vacs were stolen in a car break in, (4 that were in my Geobag) I bought some Duracells. They did about as well as the Energizers. I just bought some Eneloops, and so far I'm impressed. I use a MaHa charger in my car. JM.02W PP4x4
  13. Do you like a night cache? GCPX66 It is east of Orlando. Awesome. But take someone with you who is familiar with the this type area or someone who has done it before. PP4x4
  14. Stone Mtn park is eat up with caches. Also has a GREAT night cache, though I have not been able to go after it yet. A favorite place of mine is Cochran Mill park, Sw of Atl. The GGA has a list of best caches every year. Enjoy your visit! PP4x4
  15. Here is what am planning for my DD in March. I am going to place caches in several yards of neighbors, participants of the party and common areas. They will be laid out as a big multi cache. The Kid's will be divided into 2 groups, each going in the opposite directions. I wonder which gets the Delorme? There will be clue cards to the next stage, of 2 colors, one for each team. Once they are out of sight, the big finale will be hidden, probably on the front porch, or, hmmmmm, maybe on the deck. But there will probably be some polishing, but that's the the basic plan. I also like the idea of the Geo Event. All the plans may change........ PP4x4
  16. Happened to me twice. I will say that Delorme's tech support was the best I have ever encountered. First time was right after a battery change, I always wondered if I put the batts in backwards. Just my self doubt kicking in. Second time it was a couple caches after a batt change. Again my self doubt kicked in, and when it returned I made the + and - marks are much clearer.
  17. 'Roun here it's holly bushes. 2 bajillion leaves with spikes at the end.
  18. Another option if you would like to do the Atl area is Stone Mtn. Lots to do and see and lots of caches on the property. PP
  19. I tried to use mt 205W in Phoenix when my PN40 died. I gave up shortly and just enjoyed the scenery. Thus, my suggestion is a handheld. If you drop or dunk that Nuvi, it may not survive. PP4x4
  20. Garmin Oregon 300 at REI $249 Delorme PN40 $199 at Amazon Both niiiiice PP
  21. I'm with RR on this one. I have turned off the EC, and quickly decided I am both spoiled and lazy. Sometimes I just like to stop and take in my surroundings, and I can keep a fix on which way the cache is. PP4x4
  22. Office Max is supposed to have a 10" Acer for 149 on Black Friday. May be time for me to pull the trigger as well. PP4x4
  23. "I think the sad part is that the author was unable to run the bastard down." Makes a mess of the undercarriage. Seriously though, I too am more comfortable in the woods or even (some) swamps at night. PP
