  1. I look at it like this: You don't purchase something when you decide to pay the membership fee; you SUPPORT something. Your "thank you" gift is a small handful of MOCs created by other SUPPORTERS. Watch PBS for free if you like, but don't cry inequity when cookbooks and videos are sent only to those folk who have donated money to the station. *Barefoot*
  2. Please tell me you're not kidding! That's too cool for words...
  3. Does anyone know of any "celebrity" geocachers? Considering the level of activity down in L.A., I'm sure there's at least a few fellow cachers who are celebrities. What about news anchors, radio personalities, politicians, musicians, etc.? Local or national, it doesn't matter. Just curious... *Barefoot*
  4. That's what I thought. Thanks for confirming my suspicions... Barefoot
  5. Is there any real difference between these two models other than the out-of-the-box amount of memory. I know the Gold has more mem. and thus a more detailed built in basemap, but is that it? I'm thinking I could purchase a Meridian, pick up some more memory at some point, u/l street data, and end up with a Gold. Am I wrong? Inquiring minds want to know... *Barefoot*
  6. Thanks for writing that Palm ap, rschoolf! Forget AvantGo and all that other stuff. Geoclipper is the only thing you need to bring geocaching info on the road with you. Nice and simple, nice and clean. One step closer to paperless caching... Thanks again. *Barefoot*
  7. Hey, the statistics don't lie. California is the best, just look at the protected lands and the rural/urban land areas stats. At least we can still drive in our cities if we choose to, unlike NYC (ok...not impossible, just impractical). I'd love living here if it were only for the fact that people can't smoke in restaurants. We all know how well those non-smoking sections work I actually don't have a beef with any other state, but I do find it curious that typically only non-californios have a problem with us. I rarely if ever hear a Californian say a bad word about another state. Maybe we're too busy enjoying all of our open space, beaches, good weather, diversity, culture, etc. to care...

  9. I don't have a HUGE problem with caches like this, but I don't see how they connect with geocaching. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=19513 Perhaps someone should start a site for geoeverythingOTHERthancaches. A virtual cache is cool by me if you can visit a location based on a set of coordinates and enjoy a similar experience that the cache-placer and other cache-finders have (e.g. a nice view, a historic marker, etc.). In this case, assuming the van is in working condition and assuming someone wanted to revisit a "find" (this is assuming a lot, by the way), they probably wouldn't be successful because these are moving targets. Call me a tradionalist, but I like geoCACHES. You know, things you can find and open. barefoot
  10. What about Nalgene containers? Anyone have any experience with those? I recently placed one thinking it should endure and be fairly waterproof. At least they are when backpacking. barefoot
  11. Here is a good site that offers free, very high-quality California DRGs. I've d/l'ed all of the quads for my county and use them in high-end GIS packages (ArcInfo) on the job every day. Good stuff! If I remember correctly, the d/l speed was FAST when I grabbed what I needed. http://drg.caldata.ucdavis.edu/ Enjoy, barefoot
