  1. I prefer to see new, local caches and events without being redirected to the main page, sign in, etc. Plus Washington State... A 2 minute e-mail is a 10 minute process now. Don't like.
  2. Individually bagging since 09 April 2001. Think of the children! (and save the enviro-messiah bit too)
  3. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! Mega-multi-post...
  4. No. Don't get a tattoo of your girlfriends name either.
  5. I noticed logs started to drop off in quality with the advent of GSAK and other direct to GPS data methods. Carrying 500 locations on a chip is easy, carrying a few printed sheets made people stop and think. I think the growth of speed caching and park and grab hides killed a lot of the original spirit too. How else can one log a Wal Maht lamp pole other than "Uninspired. Fail"? "Twitter-Mentality" will further wound eloquent logging. Txt msg has already shown up from cell phone found caches. Just an observation.

  7. I did "The Big 'W' " GCB0F It IS a big dubble-ya too
  8. Home page makes my Cod look like a Scup! DAMMAGE!
  9. I don't whether to laugh or cry...
  10. "old School" gps 48. Hold in right hand and button (verb) with thumb. Am-beer-dexterous afterwards.
  11. You're probably 50+ (based upon being a driver in 1975), You had a 'handle'. You have a good memory or keep things. You owned an 8-track. You liked 'Smokey and the Bandit'. You HATE Vega's and Pinto's. I couldn't remember my VHF Marine Land license # for a hundred Monty Hall dollars. SOMEWHERE I have an engraved tag for the radio, somewhere...
  12. Someone had a tagline similar to "Geocachers know where to hide bodies" forgot who...
  13. "Were / Are You Military / Scout?" I did that thread WAAAAAAAAAAY back in '01 I started to feel a bit queasy when after a quick scan, I saw I've been here the longest in this thread (insert queasy smiley attempt to follow) :queasy: Back in the day ( when we used to go Geocaching barefoot, in the snow, uphill both ways), EVERYBODY was learning, so posting was pretty interesting. Amusing anyway. What whippersnapper with a brand new GPS® 3000 with holographic display and 10 TG memory wants to listen to someone that is using a 10 year old GPS48 ? Deep Purple, Trail Gators Edited a comma between the 2 names
  14. Still here, I can't bear to look at Getting Started anymore. I don't sell GPS units anymore so I'm not the fountain of pertinant information I once was. I also get upset with people that say "GPSr" and I'd have a complete melt-down if I ever saw another "How do I Use My NewGPS®" thread (RTFM idiot, it's easier than your remote control AND posting in a forum). "What GPS® Should I Buy?", "What Does IDIOM Mean", "It's Hunting Season", "Do You Carry a Gun?" and "The Religious Question" put me over the edge too. Hence, I don't even look at them. I still get out with my non-vocal account, I should start finding a few more with my classic name and GPS-48. BrDad hangs out in some Maine forum.
  15. http://babelfish.altavista.com/ Learn the language, don't be an ugly American.
  16. You're HOW old and you leave the house without a pen / pencil?
  17. I know how to post on a forum, but can't read a manual. How do I turn on my GPS?
