  1. I just recently got an iPod touch 4G and was wondering if there's a similar setup for viewing cache info such as cachemate for pda users?
  2. I cache with an eTrex Legend and have been for many years and I'm wanting to get into paperless caching. I have two options: get a gps that supports it or buy a pda. What would be a better idea?
  3. Thanks so much everyone for the input For those who were wondering, I was walking about online logs. But this has been helpful. Thank you! I know I'm generally descriptive, I was just looking for some extra idea as I can tend to be fairly repetative.
  4. I wanted to get some input from some other peole on this - how do I write decent online logs? The old TFTC is getting annoying and I kinda want to branch out
  5. For a discontinued model, they've been doing pretty goood with giving firmware updates for Colorado. they haven't left them in the dark. Thanks for the advice guys, I was leaning towards the 450, and I did go check both units out at the store. I think that's what I'll go with
  6. I'm looking at the Colorado, Oregon and the 62. I'm really looking for a very accurate paperless caching unit, that will be the most bang for my buck. I do geocaching with driving and hiking. I really like the interface of the Oregon, but I heard it can sometimes not lock under treecover. The Colorado has the quad helix antenna, and is an awesome price right now on amazon. The 62 has amazing accuracy, but is very expensive. Suggestions?
  7. I'm looking at buying a new unit, and the Oregon 450, the Colorado and the 62 seem to appeal to me the most. Do you think it's worth waiting for the 62 or no? If not, the oregon or colorado?
  8. Ooooh, I'm looking for a new gps unit, and I trying to decide between the oregon, and the cx, this would be perfect if it turned out great!
  9. Thanks guys for the input. I really do like the Oregon and it's features. Garmin usually takes a bit to update some of the bugs coming out so I'm not sure I'll wait too too long, but I'll look into both of these.
  10. I've been geocaching for a few years with my Garmin eTrex Legend, and love it, but I'm looking for an upgrade, something that will be a bit more accurate and easy to do paperless caching with. Features that would help in the car with directions would be nice, but not totally necessary. I've been looking at a couple models, the Garmin Gmaps 60CSx, Delorme Earthmate PN-30, Garmin Oregan and the Garmin Colorodo 400t. Money isn't a huge issue, but I'm still keeping it in mind. Which one would be the best overall gps unit? Also, if you had any other model you'd like to suggest, I'm really open about this so go for it. Thank you
  11. Arg, it burped. Let's keep it to this thread as it's the only one of the three with the first post in it. http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=214516
  12. Hide it inside an Ammo Can Fill the micros with grocery bags, adhere a CITO sticker on the side, then place them in your ammo can. LOL, what a waste of an ammo can though Thanks for the very lengthy list! I'm sure I can find something there that my area does not have! xD Doesn't Calgary have enough micros already? OK, I'm just kidding, I'll give a serious answer: how about anything suspended by fishing line? (that's not in plain sight, of course). Thanks for the idea! LOL, Calgary does have too many micros. I did 10 caches yesterday and 7 of them were micros. I would like to install creative ones, though. I'm using one for a puzzle cache as a first part, not just a traditional micro so I won't add to the erroneous amount of micros in the city
  13. Thanks for your consideration guys! My plan is to use on for a first step in a puzzle cache. I will for sure test it out in the local weather conditions before listing the cache.
  14. So...let me get this straight. Are you trying to paperless cache with your Colorado through Mac software....
  15. What are some creative ways to place micro caches? I know there are a lot of micros in trees and under trees and nanos on poles, etcetera, etcetera. But, what are some really creative ways to place a micro to put a little twist on it, perhaps make it more fun?
  16. Geocaching.com has done some minor updates lately. They've added bigger maps to the print friendly cache pages. So, when you print off a cache page, you have a cache description on one side, and the map on a separate page. The maps are also more specific. And, if you want extra logs, it will be longer. Now, if you want just a one paged cache, without maps and log as they'd be on a second page,, you can click print, and on your left hand side you should be able to choose the amount of pages you'd like to print. I.E. Typing in 1 to 1 would print the first page excluding the second and possibly third. IF you need more clarifications, feel free to post so and I'll try to clear thing up a bit if need be. The complete list of updates to geocaching.com can be found here. http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=214112
  17. Okay, I've reviewd my psots and have discovered that I have communicated the adopt concept poorly. I forgot to mention this is a feature to be used by the owner. Contact the owner and if they want you to adopt it, they will send a request VIA this featurein caus. Perhaps just mention it to them in caus ethey are unaware of this feature. If the owner is unavailable and does not maintain it soon, it will eventually be archived. I will communicate this and other things clearly in the future. Sometimes I guess we choose our words wrong. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  18. That is true, but that is the only way you can adopt any other cache manually is with the permission of the owner. This is just a tad more organized and official as a request
  19. C'est beau ca. Sa a l'air d'etre tres interessant et il benifissera la comminaute beaucoup. Merci pour l'avertissement! C'est une tres bonne idee!
  20. I hate to butt in, but I really don't think this is nesessary. We have had numberous posts in this thread all saying the same thing, to read and understand the guidelines. I think one would be sufficient. It's great that you all want to help others, and so do I and so do tons of other people, but one person posting the answer if fine. If you come across a post and that would be the asnwer, do the polite thing don't repost it. It is really impolite and is in a way spam. I'm sorry if this has offended any posters, but honestly...
  21. Stop the Presses! I spoke wrong! I acually didn't, but I just discovered this thru my browsing. Enjoy! http://www.geocaching.com/adopt/
  22. That's pretty cool. I could maybe benifit like that. I have a PDA and a GPS to bring and a digital camera is a big load. With something like this, I can see the simplicity. Thank you for your contributuion!
  23. Yes! I use hints too a lot. I sometimes read the hint and know exactly what I'm looking for on the site. It's like a skill, reading the hints. Once you become more experienced, you will rarely need them, but as you begin, it sometimes helps and after a while, you'll learn some of the tricks of some of the hiders and you'll find small things like a bigger piles of leaves or sticks and you'll know right away where it is.
  24. 1. Make an account on photobucket.com. 2. Upload your image to your account. 3. On your account, right click on the image and click 'Copy Shortcut'. 4. On your cache page, click 'edit listing. 5. Where it says Background image, paste the url/shortcut you cpied earlier. If you encounter any problems, please contact me. I want to make sure you complete this successfully. Good luck and have fun!
  25. I'm glad you are commited to this. I hope you find a good spot!
