  1. Hi from the JABs in NSW. If you are traveling to NSW - Sydney you can give us a yell or try posting your message on these forums- http://forum.geocaching.com.au/index.php as this is where you will find most Australians hang out. There is a place for International visitors to post without having to open an account. What ever you do I hope you enjoy your stay in OZ.

    Is it just me,

    We plan all our holidays around where we can cache and what new places it will take us. Usally we spend the Two weeks pri to going reading cache pages checking and planing routes. But I still run sevearl PQ of different areas so that we always have somethiing up our sleeve for those larst minute trips that send you all over the place. Including work related.

  4. Hi would like to help. Just depends on where and when?
  5. Hi If you don't recieve a reply try this forum site http://forum.geocaching.com.au/index.php You find most Australians hang out in there. There is a section for international visitors that does not require then to log in / open an account.
  6. There has been a couple of posts where people have taken photos of the cache and emailed them to the owner as proof. That has been showen as a way to log that missing cache as Been there and to show the owner they were in the correct place. It also helps us who own the caches on weather it is really missing or if the location was missed.

    Hi Jon here have sent email but just in case try this link to where most Australians hang out. http://forum.geocaching.com.au/index.php
  8. The JABs are more then happy to help you out.
  9. Gotta love night time caching. Quite offen go on 24hour caching spree. I believe you can get closer to GZ at night because you use your gps and not your eyes.Eg Cache hidden in a stump day time you start looking in every stump until you are on top of it where at night you can't see all those other stumps as you what till GZ before looking. You also move slower at night allowing gps to settle more quickly.
  10. Have just searched the Groundspeak shop list for caching suppliers but unable to locate a store which I have visited before and offered a large range of clothing- shirts, hats etc. Can somebody let us know if this store is still opperating ?
  11. To hike 2km's into the bush and find a cache without a pen and not to have brought your own is it or isn't it a find? I have afew finds not logged on there cache page for one of several reasons, and several finds not logged in the log book ( this manly been that the log was all but a pile of mush). Question if I hide a cache and at somepoint in the future my partner goes and lookes for it with out my help is it or isn't it a find? Just food for thought.

Have read the logs for this one and did noticed that Hexy from Australia found this cache on 18/11/2007 and was looking for someone to join them. Look hope this helps and if you have no luck I will give it ago in about 6 weeks.
  13. Here the first three logs out of a local cache May 31, 2007 by Furterbrown (301 found) FTF if that translates to fourth to find. Saw this one and off, a quick run close to home only to find I've been beaten by the three mousecachers. And by 15mins only, a little quicker through dinner and I could have caught them in the act, pretended to muggle them off and grabbed the prize. A well stocked cache with a nice view.

  14. Have noticed over the larst few days In List Newest Caches -in my local area , when some are now logged they come up in the larst found list as -1 days ago* Not Yesterday or Today but -1days ago. When you check the cache page logs the find dates are for today.
  15. All good again with google maps. PLEASE DONT CHANGE IT AGAIN. Thanks.
  16. Sorry Shadowrider I thought that I was stuck with US time and learnt that it could be changed to thanks.

  18. Hi from down under. There is a Cache in Canberra up a tree that is hidden in the forest where let rope down and find a cache. Even though I knew it was up the tree I couldn't see it till I found the rope.
  19. The JABs have now tried using Firefox too only to get this message. The page at http://www.geocaching.com says: EO.Web Controls Client Side Debug Message: An error occoured while applying the new output.Error message: jsonData.cc has no properties You can turn off this message by setting EO.Web.Runtime.Debug to 0 (not recommended for debug build). You click out off message and you get nothing. Not even a blank map page.The dots just keep going around as if they are searching.
  20. Just so you know that your not the only one. I have just returned from holidays and now an recieving the same message when trying to use the maps.
  21. Would love to help but I'm some 850 km aways. If you donn't have any luck let me know and he may have to mail it to me. By the way most Australian Geocaches use a different forum and not many will see this post. I will try and contact someone Melbourne who may be able to help you. JABs.
  22. Well here we are and all of a sudden I've got Mapping problems again. Went away for 2 weeks system not touched in that time.( so nothing has been changed here). When I got to maps I get a WIE Message:- EO.Web Controls Client Side Debug Message: An error occurred while appling to new output. Error message:'cc.length' is null or not an object. You can turn off this message by setting EO.Web.Runtime.Debug to 0 (not recommended for debug build). Click on OK and it just keeps PARSING GEOCACHES
  23. Hi there for pending friends you can't do much except to veiw there profile or cancel the offer. It is up to the cacher that you sent the request to accept the offer. If you need more help email me and we can do a test run. Hope this helps. Jon aka JABs
