  1. That is very cool! It kind of looks like one of these: Very cool! Hmm, it seems to have a price tag or a product label poking out of it's nether parts. It's the logbook....
  2. I agree with this part. I learned quickly that hunting on public land was (typically) a waste of time for a number of reasons including that reason.
  3. That is very cool! It kind of looks like one of these:
  4. So then just add a Star-Trek transporter and you've got the perfect Geocaching hand-held, you know, real-time access to the database and teleportation in lieu of riding and hiking. On the other hand it should work the other way around ... able to beam a cache container from any hidey-hole right to your La-Z-Boy recliner. Also I don't think that hand-helds should be named after States. Hand- helds as described above should be named after Star Trek characters, you know, Spock, Scotty, Sulu, Uhura, and so on. O yes, one more thing, the Seven of Nine model should be anatomically correct. ... and a Phaser attachment to blast nano and micro caches. Anybody taking this down? Harmon, I didn't think that my idea was that far out there... For sure, I'll bet navigationall devices go that way and are already doing so for military forces. Still, it gave me a chance to think outside the box of sensibility. I look forward to testing the Seven of Nine model someday....

  6. I still use a 60CS too, Jodi. We don't have many trees in SoCal so it works just fine. I broke my Palm, so I don't use hints anymore either, but I still find 'em.
  7. Seems like the best setup would be a GPS that would show exactly where you are on the cache map on the GC website. You could click on any treasure chest to see the cache page. There would never be stale caches because it would all be real time. So wherever you wanted to go every cache would be there without the hassle of constantly downloading multiple PQs. Wouldn't a GPS like that be nice?!
  8. I have been very remiss on congratulating everyone on their great accomplishments! Congrats! And yippeeee to the MTRP Honor Roll Inductees Triple Crown and Lulu499. Me too. Congrats everyone!
  9. Now there's only 1,462 more posts until this thread hits the "ridiculous" level...
  10. I'm not sure how many of you heard about this, but a 56 year-old geocacher died in Spokane by slipping and falling off a 100 foot cliff while hunting for a cache. So please be careful on those extreme caches!
  11. His meal comes with a large McChicken sandwich....
  12. I added a "the rest of the story" edit while you were asking this! Thanks. I was picturing Bear Grylls doing something like that in my head. I also thought that you had a crutch that you might have been able to spear the ground with as you slid along on your belly... Anyhow, your story shows how easy it is to get yourself in big trouble without even realizing it. Thanks for sharing it.
  13. So what happened next? Inquiring minds want to know...
  14. To bee or not to bee, that is the question....
  15. That's exactly what I do right now. It's a bit of a pain, which is why I'm making this suggestion. And I still can't create a PQ that only returns things that are NOT on a bookmark list. I could also create a "Found It" bookmark list and put everything I find on that. But isn't it nice that geocaching.com sets that "Found" flag for you automatically, and lets you create PQs based on Found or Not Found? In that case, you only have one non-GSAK option: You can add them to your ignore list and exclude caches you've ignored from your normal PQ. The ignore list is the only bookmark list you can do that with. Then you can also run a separate PQ for all the caches on your ignore list.
  16. The non-GSAK solution would be to create a DNF bookmark list and run a PQ on that. He could still ignore them that way too.
  17. uh, this... I log DNFs when I've given up too. If I haven't given up then I keep searching...
  18. Going hunting next week? This weekend... It will be found, it will be mine, it is my precious. That's right Saturday morning is the opener. Get a hat rack!
  19. Congrats gamers! I'll have some time next week to work on these if my honeydew list isn't too long...
  20. Maybe you don't understand my suggestion. I *do* log my DNFs, and I think making a change like I'm suggesting would encourage others to log their DNFs more frequently/regularly, too. well, if you only log them when you've given up as opposed to when you just didn't find a cache, then it's not really an accurate representation, and any data management problems resulting are therefore your own problem. What makes you think he doesn't log all his DNFs? He wasn't asking to filter out any cache he has DNFed....
  21. I agree with that... But if I'm never going back, I'll mark it as "Ignore", and I always use the "Are not on my ignore list" option in my pocket queries. (Or did you just write that so you could use the "sorting porpoises" phrase?) I do the same thing. The ignore button has many uses....
  22. There's a big difference between a good curveball over the plate and a ball 10 feet over the batter's head... Someone placing caches with soft coords is yet another reason to add this feature.
