  1. I'm new to this and have no idea what the best containers are to use. I'm planning on my first hide sometime soon and have noticed a lot of people use those sistema containers. I bought one and it seems they only remain dry if they are kept up the correct way? What would you recommend I use as I'm not one who wants a crappy container!
  2. I had a look on facebook and didn't see any pages for Dunedin Geocachers so I've gone ahead and made one myself. I thought it would be a fun place to get to meet new cachers and to post photos and stories of our adventures! I have already uploaded a coupled of photos from my recent trip to the Haywards Vantage Cache above Aramoana. So I hope to meet a few local Geocachers there! the link at the moment is https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dunedin-Geocachers/222698227879370?ref=hl or just click here malamute-5
  3. I only have the standard etrex (the yellow one). With Pocket queries can you look at them on the computer? In the future I will be looking at getting another GPS which supports all this fancy stuff but for the time being this is what I have to work with.
  4. I have a basic garmin etrex gps and I am considering a premium membership but I am not sure how useful pocket queries etc will be without being able to upload them to my GPS. Also the feature that allows you to find caches along routes, is that done on a PC? I am happy to upload each cache manually for the time being.
  5. I'm new to the world of Geocaching and eventually when I hide my own cache I want to hide it with a TB in it. Lets say it's goal is to travel to some city in england, for example. When it reaches said city I assume the person who finds it in a cache there is going to keep hold of it as it has reached it's destination? My question is, how do I get it back. Can you send it on another journey back to your own town/city or would the finder of the TB in said city have to post it back to you? or do you just not get it back? I'm a little confused so any help would be much appreciated.
  6. Shall go forth and check it out now
  7. Thanks for the replies. I have mentioned in my posts that the logs are damp/need replacement etc so hopefully they will read that.
  8. Had a quick look on the forums but didn't see anything. Today while out hunting for caches I found a couple that needed maintenance. Now I know you can log it as needs maintenance but I have logged it as found. I was wondering if it is okay to do a second log reporting that it needs maintenance Does anyone else do this as I don't want to if it's going to annoy people.
  9. I was wondering exactly the same thing as I live in New Zealand. I have just been leaving my dates the way they are on the website when I log a find but the only problem I could think of with doing that is if someone looks in one of the log books I've logged and then on the cache log on the website and they dates don't match but hopefully that isn't a problem. The next time I find 2 Caches I'll be sure to add the second one on the correct date for NZ because as a newbie to the world of Geocaching I'm all up for the 31 days of August thing! Good challenge to start me off
  10. I'm new to the world of Geocaching, well I've known about it for a while now but have only just started this week! From the amount of caches placed around Dunedin I was wondering how many of you out there actually live here?
  11. Figured I should probably say a quick hello to everybody out there! About a year ago while walking up Baldwin st, Dunedin, New Zealand (my home town) I bumped into this fellow who had a GPS and got talking to him (sadly I'm not sure of his username on here). I had heard of Geocaching but never really thought about it. He offered to show me and we walked to the top of the street and sure enough, within a few seconds he had cache in hand and logged his find. I thought that was pretty cool but once again never thought anymore of it! About 4 days ago now I was listening to the radio and they were talking about Geocaching and they gave the geocaching.com website so I thought I'd take a look and see if there were any geocaches near my house. Well, I wasn't expecting the 7 or so within 5km and the hundreds upon hundreds littered throughout the whole city!!! I already had a GPS so I figured I had nothing to lose and I put in the coordinates for what would be my first find and the start of a new adventure for not only me but my wife who tagged along! I now have 6 finds and I just want to thank everyone who hides and maintains caches all over the world!
