  1. I use the Cobra Micro Talk two way FRS radios out on the trail and have been very pleased with them. I also have a no-code-tech ham license and can attest to the adictabilty (is that a word?) of that hobby as well. The two meter band is very popular with motorists and outdoorsy types in my area and if you really need help out in the woods there will always be someone monitoring the frequency who can send aid. Good luck, N3YKX

So there it is: National Parks and wilderness areas are, IMO, out. USFS and BLM land is in. I have not placed any caches on NPS land or in a wilderness area. I have placed 2 on USFS land and 3 on BLM land. It might be of interest to some that I have become increasingly involved in an emerging hobby called GeoDashing. The locations are coordinates generated at random by a computer, and the object is simply getting there to take pictures and write about it on the Internet. Geocaching will always be my "first love," as it was the reason I bought my GPS. I have found that those who enjoy Geocaching for the same reasons I do, (the adventure, not the trinkets) tend to gravitate toward GeoDashing.

I have enjoyed every one of my "dashes" (a grand total of 4, so far, compared to 123 caches) as much as almost all of my cache hunts, it is exciting to go out to a place you are almost certain, or at least it is easy to convince yourself, that no on else has ever been, even if it is only a few square feet of earth. I do not say that people need to see every place, or even have vehicular access to it, but if a person has the desire, however strange, and the stamina to reach a chosen destination, they should be at least allowed to do it.

    What model GPS is everyone using? III

    Hi. I have a Megellan 310 also, and am very pleased with it. While I have only searched and located 1 cache and 1 multi-cache, I have not had any problems with accuracy thus far. I was within 3 feet of the last one with my GPS. However, I've seen quite a bit of talk on here about the 310 vs. the 315, and am still thinking seriously about taking mine back to Wal-Mart and getting the 315 - if only for the cool maps that supposedly come loaded on it. quote:Originally posted by celts:I don't see a Magellan 310 listed here. My friend ( a newbie) bought a Magellan 310 yesterday. Is she correct in stating that the coordinates only carry out to second decimal, and if so, what difference will that make in her accuracy?
  5. If i leave a non-commercial card with my email address and a note telling people to contact me if they want to talk..and my purpose is to be there for them just like other people were there for me..r u people gonna throw it away cause it might have "religious" overtones? this is my first post since i have just registered on the site today .. and i have not yet gone on my first hunt .. but i would like to think that i could leave something like that along with other tokens from my town or state or region or whatever and not have others be "offended" at my gestures and throw my things away simply cause they did not like them. if i leave something from texas will it be tossed too by ya'll who don't like texans or are offended by the lone star state? to me .. i have the perfect example .. i work at a company that caters lunch every day .. i used to work on weekends as part of my schedule .. on sat they brought in a most excellent french silk pie and there was enough to last all weekend for all people who had to work .. when i came to work on sun .. looking forward to another piece of most excellent pie .. i found it in the trash .. not just one piece .. but the whole pie .. turns out ONE person did not like his slice so he threw away the WHOLE pie .. am i the only one who would see a problem with that? isn't that a bit selfish? just because you would have no use for it or because you do not like it does not mean that some one else would not find meaning in it and enjoy it so why throw them all away? you don't like it don't take it-read it-touch it. DISCLAIMER: as i mentioned before i am not talking bout ads for any commercial service or group or business card .. merely things that have personal significance for me. also i agree about leaving garbage and used paperproducts..that's just gross

    Media Exposure

    There was an interview with Prof Charles Merry of UCT on Radio 702 and Cape Talk during the Computer and Technology Show, Saturday 11 August 13:00-14:00. I'll upload the MP3 as soon as I get a copy. A transcript will be available on iafrica.com soon. ------------------ Peter Scholtz www.biometrics.co.za [This message has been edited by Peter Scholtz (edited 14 August 2001).]
  8. quote:Originally posted by Gliderguy:... I used a 300mw (not even full power of 500 mw) pager sized FRS radio to talk to a kid more than 8 miles away. ... That is about the best case of line of sight you can get... The current record for distance using FRS is a little over 120 miles. This was done between 2 mountain tops in North Carolina. This was an extreme case - normal distances are 1-2 miles. Bob
  9. We had heard other cachers talk about after dark excursions, so we finally decided to give it a try. The only scary part was being blitzed by a screech owl. If you think it is hard caching at night, read on. My daughter (16 in a few days) is completely night blind. She wanted to try the night cache too, so she carried her white-tipped cane on the trail. The going was slower than most would have been at night, but we had a great time. She's always been the adventurous type!
  10. Not sure if you can talk about this or not, but my morbid curiosity has gotten the best of me here. Was he dumped there or did he die out hiking and noone knew where he was? I feel almost ashamed for asking, ,but your story is so fascinating I cannot help myself.
  11. Yes the authorities were notified and the remains have been taken away. That would be weird finding a skull next to the cache. The identity of the man was found. His family( mother) called me once to talk. It was a bit weird but it helped her out a lot. I have gotten X-mas card from them. Strange but I just got back checking on that cache just today. Someone was interested in more details. Not many except that I almost picked the skull up with my hands, but moved it with a stick first, that is when I noticed the jaw and that it was not an animal. Now I almost look for out of place things. It was a horrible discovery but in the long run it helped the family put things to rest.
  12. Some of the forums I have read regarding FRS vs CB were inconclusive which could range further. Of course, a CB back at your vehicle with a well tuned whip antenna is going to beat the socks off of FRS. But for general handheld use the difference isnt supposed to be too much. The smallest handheld CB radios I am aware of use at least EIGHT AA batteries, versus either 3 or 4 AA or AAA batteries for FRS. I used a 300mw (not even full power of 500 mw) pager sized FRS radio to talk to a kid more than 8 miles away. I was in the middle of Albuquerque and he was on nearby Sandia Peak. That is about the best case of line of sight you can get. I think I could have been twice that distance from him and still been able to communicate, he sounded like he was in the street in front of my house. It all depends on the density of the terrain. But even in heavy woods I havent heard much less than 3/4 mile reported from people with high quality FRS units. GMRS is much more powerful and has better than double the advertized range of FRS, and those units are getting smaller all the time. The prices are in line with high end FRS radios. But the smallest GMRS is still more than twice as big as the FRS radios I am using now, so I doubt I personally will bother to switch any time soon. here is a link to lots of user reviews on FRS radios: http://members.tripod.com/~jwilkers/review.html Here is a general overview on the same site: http://members.tripod.com/~jwilkers/choose.html [This message has been edited by Gliderguy (edited 13 August 2001).]
  13. at because I found another, larger trail leading in the right direction. It brought me out to a scenic view of the river and the stone foundation of some old house. I had used the last picture on the camera at the stream, so I didn't get any other pictures that day. The picture below is one taken from someone else who found the cache the next day. It is looking up the Chattahoochee River with some people kayaking. The foundation still had steps that were a great place for me to catch my breath again. When I got to moving again, I was about 500' from the cache. The trail was a narrow trail going uphill at a modest grade. I followed the trail up towards the crest of the hill, stopping 3 times to catch my breath. At the crest was another trail, which I took to within 80 feet of my destination. From there it was all downhill. The cache was down somewhere in the ravine, so I worked my way down through thick underbrush. At one point the GPS showed my distance at only 4' but I never found the cache. I worked my way up and down that hillside for probably an hour. There were so many tree stumps and little granite bluffs that it could have been hidden in. Plus I was so exhausted that I couldn't see straight. The forest canopy was so thick that I got erratic readings, at best, out of the GPS. I finally decided to call it quits and head back. I knew I just wasn't going to find it that day. So, I clipped the GPS on my belt and headed downhill. I knew there was a stream below, so I could just go downhill until I found the stream and then follow it to the river and the main trail. Well, the going got tougher the further down I went. The underbrush was like a jungle and when I finally reached the stream, it was a 4 foot drop-off to a swollen, muddy creek. The water was too muddy and was flowing fast, so I knew I couldn't chance jumping down into it. Plus, the area of the creek was overgrown with shrubs and there were 3-6' blind dropoffs along the way because of the granite bluffs I mentioned earlier. So, unfortunately it was back up hill for me. I stumbled several times and slid downhill, and generally fought tooth and nail to get halfway up the hill. I had to stop and catch my breath again and when I did, I realized that my GPS was gone. It must have been knocked off of my belt one of the times I stumbled! Well, you know what that means..... back downhill again. I retraced my steps and looked everywhere, but never did find the GPS. By this time my t-shirt, bluejeans, and boots were completely drenched with sweat and covered with ground-in Georgia clay. I was exhausted. I knew that I had to get started back to the truck or I was going to have to lay down and sleep on the trail. I had used up the last of my water already, so I knew I couldn't stay in the heat much longer. I had to give up my search for the $109 GPS and get back to the truck for fresh water and air conditioning. You know I had to have been tired and hot for a cheapscate like me to leave that much money laying on a hillside. Well, I made it up to the crest of the hill again and took the trail downhill to the old stone foundation. I stopped, rested, and looked at a map. Luckily I had a compass to help guide me, because I wasn't about to try to climb up the difficult trail by the creek. This time, I realized that the map was marked with lines to show the difficulty rating of the trails. ..... Was an average trail . _ . _ . _ Was a moderate trail _ _ _ _ Was a difficult trail Of course, the ones I chose to take me to the destination were the straightest path, but also were the difficult trails. There were no "average" trails, so I picked out a moderate trail to follow back. There were two choices, one going uphill and one going along the river. I went along the river, because it was the flattest. Well, that lasted for about 100 yards. The path went by the base of a 100' granite cliff. The river was swollen and muddy from heavy rain and had covered the path. I might have been able to wade through for a ways to the other side, but I wasn't going to take a chance on that muddy ole river. Since I don't climb granite cliffs, I had to turn back and take a different trail. This trail ended up being moderate, but it was all uphill in that direction. I stopped halfway up and took an extended break. My cell phone rang (I carry it for emergencies) and it was Julie. It was already 5:00 so I had been trudging through the forest for 3 hours! It was nice to talk to her and whine of my poor luck and misfortune. I told her I wanted to get another GPS, and she agreed (what else was she gonna say when I was so down!). With that short rest and new determination, I headed back uphill. The trail reached the same junction where I had chosen the really steep trail (the path less travelled). You know, if I would have only chosen this path back then... There were 4 trails, so I had to look at the map and use the compass to find the right one, which I did and trodded along. The trails from this point back to the truck were much more forgiving and I made it back in good time. I got home that evening before Julie did and logged my visit at geocaching.com. I told of how I had fallen and lost my GPS and gave my email address and offered a small reward. There were two other visitors that evening and three the next day. Luckily, someone found it and were nice enough to say so! They emailed me and left a phone number to call. I'll call them this evening and find a way to retrieve it. Oh, and just my luck the UPS guy just dropped off my new one from Amazon.com! Gee, so now I have a "backup" to get me out of the woods when I lose my GPS - haha!
  14. Not much caching due to FMD, but I'm happy to talk. Contact me on schwuk@schwuk.com ------------------ How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
  15. I have a pair of Motorola FRS Talkabout 250 and like them alot. Good range. They claim that they have a 2 mile range with line of sight. I have found that I get about 1.5 range reliably with line of site and about a mile in heavy tree cover. My father has a pair of the Motorola FRS 60 radios. They have similar perfomance but a few different features. Both units run for at least 24 hours of standby time on three AA batteries. The Talkabout 250 can use voice activate hand free system were the 60 you must still press the button to talk. The 60 has a call feature were each person can pick a unique call tone. There are a few newer version out there that might have other features. I have not used the other brands but a friend had a pair audiovox unit and they seemed to work well with my Motorola units on a day of skiing. Just remember that Motorola developed the FRS radio system for what that's worth. But for the price, range and unit size you get with the FRS radio I would suggest the FRS radios over a handheld CB.

    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.

    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
  20. 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.

    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.
  22. 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.

    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).]
  24. Hey Clayjar ... we seem to be the only one's typing here ... people are going start to talk ...
  25. 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.
