    Software and other Questions

    personally the more magellon units i see the more impressed with them i become, garmin units are nice, dont get me wrong i love my vista, but i think for a beginner that the superior antena on the mag. units plus ease of use might make them superior, but my opinion gets swayed every time i see the shiny marbles that keep falling out of my ears....lol just make sur you go to a reputable sporting goods store and talk to as many geocachers that use the units ...even ask to go caching with them, we love showing off our skills at tracking down wild caches, to neophytes, and then make an informed choice on what suits your needs best. hope i didnt confuse you too much, Elwood

    Map330 map out of alignment

    Enjoy the hunt, and if you find any *really* good caches around there, talk about it. I'm close enough that I might make a run through that area if there are any really good ones.

    Permission in parks

    You are supposed to ask permission. But me, being very jaded to bloated gov't. feel it's an excersize in how to waste a morning (or likely even longer). You'll call the rec department and spend a 1/2 hour explaining what you want to do. they will either forward the call to someone else in the department and you explain it all over again (if they are in - more than likely 'that person is out of the office right now' and you play phone tag for a week, only to find out 'oh, you should be talking to that department' or 'hmmm, I don't think I can decide that, not sure who you should talk to' or they pass you to public works, or somewhere else. And after you explain yourself 5 more times, you'll likely get shrugs, or maybe even a yes or no. But no matter, because there is some other department that you didn't talk to, that has their hands involved in that park in some other, obscure way and THEY have some rule or statute that will reverse whatever answer you got above. There is talk of a database on this site where you can note who you got the OK from. So the next person that wants to place a cache in that park or another park in the same town or county, might not have to reinvent the wheel completely. It comes down to me seeing soo much trash in my searches that my view is that 1 more item - a tupperware container, can't be that bad. And I am not getting paid to wind my way through the bureaocracy. They may be there to collect paychecks and drag out any situation presented to them so they have something to do in their social welfare job, but I am not going to be part of that morass if I can avoid it.
  5. With all the talk about GPS and trees and accuracy in general I got to thinking about GPS use before geocaching while SA was still on. I was wondering how many of the Geocachers out there were using a GPS back when the goverment was still scrambling the timing signals from the satellites? I remember a trip from OH into PA where my good old II+ manage to get 12 satellites with really good geometery and I had an EPE of 38 feet I was floored. I had never seen accuracy like that. Most of the time I was in the 60-70 foot range. Now with SA off I routinly have and EPE of 20-25 feet. With WAAS I get EPE of 5-9 feet on many occasions. So where you a PRE or POST SA GPS user? mcb

    Is publicity a good thing?

    Not much choice in South Africa as it hasn't taken off yet. I'm actively seeking media coverage and will finally get an interview on Radio 702, our largest talk radio station. (Not me, I don't do public speaking!) Unfortunately when the media bites, they don't let go. So once you get the media you want, you can't control it from then on ... So yes, the fast growth because of the publicity could be a bad thing, but I don't see any other way of doing it. At least the Early Cachers have debated many issues and come to excellent conclusions that should help ... 1/2c ------------------ Peter Scholtz www.biometrics.co.za
  7. Hello, picked up a few caches my self and also planted a few. Scotty quote:Originally posted by hsabbers:Hello all, I'm a journalist working on geocaching-related piece for a well-known UK magazine. I'm hoping to make contact with UK-based geocaching enthusiasts prepared to talk me about their experiences and endeavours as regards this new sport. Thanks in advance. Harry Sabbers.
  8. quote:Originally posted by Iron Chef:A Geocaching IRC server would be great. :~) I think an IRC server would be great also. If you would like to see a good example of a well controlled chat area look at momsonline.com. I do think that they can be overly strict sometimes, but I know for one that I can go there anytime and find nice people to talk to. I don't go to any other chat area. They allow men...LOL... so check it out.
  9. Okay,I'll put my 2 cents in....Car Talk is great! Geocaching is great! Listening to Car Talk while geocaching is heaven!!!!

    Monday..........

    Ya........it is ironic. I went to go see Dave at Giants stadium June 11, but I didnt want to go to Meadows. I am in the running for a certain job that is really strict on drug use. I went to all three Meadows shows last year and they were too smokey..... both kinds......so I just decided on NJ this year. Man do I love the Lillywhite sessions.......Everyday what?... almost forgot what that record sounded like!!!! again.... talk to you soon...... Dave P.S. I do have quite a few bootlegs....this could turn into a fun way to trade!!! Let me know [This message has been edited by DMBfan (edited 08 August 2001).]
  11. Hey Clayjar ... we seem to be the only one's typing here ... people are going start to talk ...

    Monday..........

    I saw a small article in "Trail Runner" magazine about this site on Monday. Even though it did give the pros and cons about caching.....so called "destruction" of wildlife.... I immediately hopped on the website. Tuesday I did a little research during the day and went out that night and bought an ETrex. Wednesday I went geocaching for the first time. I didn't get out of work until 6, and by the time I got out there it was just about dusk. Although the darkness prevented me from finding it I will be back there early tomorrow morning. I was so close I could smell it......... dadgum......... Thank you to the rocket scientist who came up with this sport. Can't wait till the weekend so I can pick a new quest to shoot for. Talk to you soon Dave M.
  13. Cacher stooping to commercialism? I don't think so. It's ClayJar the guy who's been trying to get on Car Talk for years stooping to geocaching to get on the show.

    Who Do You Blame?

    or and I can prove it.) My very first hunt with two of my kids was a complete failure. The terrain was worse than we were led to expect and we never did find the cache. The reason: Cacher left the wrong coordinates (confirmed and corrected by cacher.) Talk about leaving a bad taste in your mouth! Yeah, the cacher may get a reading, but what if his accuracy is really low because of a lack of acquisitions. I'd even check my coordinates against a topo map to make sure they were correct.
  15. The Car Talk show to be broadcast on the weekend of August 18, 2001, will have a mention of geocaching. No real detail or interview or anything, but I made sure to mention basically what it is, and I spelled "geocaching" and pointed them to Geocaching.com. It's the first clip in the "third half" of the show, and you'll be able to listen online at the site the following week. (Oh, and they recommended Michelin tires for me.)

    Hunt # 2 with 330 and the 76........

    I got through on the first call. Time on hold less than 10 min. In fact I had another call come in for me on another line and put them on hold(thinking it would be a long time as I've heard talk of) and when I came back HE was waiting for me. They were very nice and did not hesitate to say send it in. They also said send in the ext. ant. And gave me their FED-EX shippers #. I called 8:00 am their time on Tuesday. And another trick I use when its hard to get through is............ When it says press 1 for???? Don't press any key. This way it sends you through right away like someone with a rotary dial. Try it it works most times.

    Post your testimonials HERE

    I'm a 40 year old mother of 4. For the past year or so I've been looking for an activity that my entire family can do together. It's not easy to find something that fits that need for ages ranging from 8 to 45. When I first read about geocaching, it sounded like a neat idea, but I didn't realize how much my kids would enjoy it. Now we spend 1 or 2 weekends a month hunting caches in our area. We have been to parks that we have always heard about, or driven by, but never had a "reason" to stop and see. We've found a real great playground in Walton, KY (Picnic in the park cache), learned a lot about the first settlers in our area (Pioneers Honor cache), and discovered an amazing view of our city from Devou Park in KY (Cinti Vista cache). This past week while on vacation in KY we actually saw a bald eagle at Cave Run Lake because we were out hiking for a cache (Daniel Boone #2). And if it hadn't been for looking for the cache we would never have been on the trail, much less stopped at the lake. My kids have learned to hike responsibly (we "cache in and trash out"), seen numerous animals (deer, turtle, fox, etc), and this is one family activity, that while being good for us, they actually enjoy. An added benefit is that I've found that on those hikes we actually spend a lot of time talking to each other. I've learned a lot about whats really going on at school, with friends, etc since we started geocaching. Also this is a sport where skill level doesn't have anything to do with age. Often the kids figure out where the cache is before the adults do. We've also placed some caches, and the kids have learned quite a bit about responsiblity with checking on them, replacing worn out or soaked logs, cameras that have been used up, etc. We talk about where to place our caches so that there is minimal impact to the environment, and will periodically move our caches if it looks like a trail is being worn to them. I'd like to think that if we go at this responsibly the BLM will see this for what it is - a wholesome family activity that gets people to enjoy (often) less well know portions of our public park system. I sure know I'm not sure what we'd be able to replace this with if we couln't do it anymore.
  18. You've been trying to get on Car Talk for years, and the closest you've gotten is this week, when you very well might get on the show (find out tomorrow). What is my question? My tires are just about due for a replacement, and I need to know what kind to buy, since I've been driving all over the place since I've picked up this new hobby called geocaching.

    EasyGPS Problems

    In the easygps preferences, make sure that you have the GPS type set to the correct model for your GPSR. Also, the fact that you can see NMEA data in hyperterminal means that the receive data and ground wires in your home made cable are okay, but it doesn't prove that transmit data works. I also have a home made cable, and it sometimes gives me problems. Every time I start to use easygps with that cable, the first step I take after starting the program is to click on GPS Version info which is under the GPS menu. This option talks to the GPSR and asks it to transmit back its make, model, and software version number. If this step works, then I know for a fact that the GPSR and easygps can talk to each other. WHen it doesn't work, I know my cable needs reseating...
  21. Don't know about the Boy Scouts, but the Girl Scouts have a badge called "Finding Your Way". When my troop earned it this June we added in how to use a GPS after we finished up the compass work. After we had that down we went out and located a cache, and then placed our own. From my perspective, as a leader, while the badge work taught them some really good skills (map reading & compass work), the geocaching made it really fun - and they now had to use the map reading and compass work in addition to the GPS. On top of it all they've really enjoyed following their cache ("East of the Fork and West of the Spoon") this summer. It's made for lots of talk.
  22. I'm trying to figure out why these topics are 95% thoughtful discourse and 5% generalization and namecalling. If I spit in your face would you want to talk to me? Or compromise? Come on. to: bbnot2busy I prefer to keep the toys in the caches. That's what a geocache is and should be. I don't think it's the size of the cache that is the issue but the existence of one. to: navdog Not sure what a permit would mean. That's what compromises are all about. I would expect optimally would be to speak with a land manager to find out the "safe areas" and hide them there. Jeremy

  25. Come on guys, you're getting too specific on me here The example I presented was just that, an example. If it is such a unique example, tell me that and I'll find something else to talk about. I just figured that maybe this was an issue that other folks had run into and I was trying to offer a possible solution. I'd be surprised if any of you experienced seekers haven't run into caches rated the same that had very different time requirements.
