My wife and I started geocaching last December. Somewhere along the way we seem to have got another local we have yet to meet addicted as well. We're looking to start our own cache and we had a few questions in relation to it and another not.
1) We've seen the sample letter to leave in the cache on gs.com. Are there any other variations that we can look at as well? Multiple language perhaps?
2) We've also seen many logbooks as well. Some of them, particularly for smaller caches, look to have been printed. Is there a file somewhere to be found to download and use? Several of our logs may have to be smaller than a tablet and fit in a spice container.
Finally, We've been using a Magellan GPS 315 I bought about 5 years ago or so and recently purchased the download cable. Using that thing has proven invaluable and great as far as saving time in regards to entering the information. We also use a Magellan exPlorist 200 however it doesn't have that wonderful feature. We are looking to upgrade to a Magellan 500 LE that does have that and many other features that seem great including downloading maps and such on the SD card. Does anyone here have any advice, suggestions, good or bad experiences with that particular model? We'd like to know from the boots on the ground before pulling the trigger on it. We opted for it since it had a color screen, ran on regular batteries, had an SD slot, and a download cable while other similar priced models in the Magellan line do not.
