+mtbiker278 Posted January 29, 2008 Share Posted January 29, 2008 I just started my geocaching efforts recently, and I'm already thinking of things to make the game a little easier. I didn't have the money to get a fancy new Garmin Colorado, but I did have enough to get the decent GPSMAP 60. However, it definitely lacking in the amount of information it can store in terms of clues and hints. I think the total characters it can save in the notes of a wayoint is about 30. Anyway, I was thinking since I can store everything on my GPSr, I figured I could at least condense the amount of paper I would be using. I started making an excel spread sheet with the Cache numbers, coords, and clues. For those who don't have Excel on their home computer you can download the Open source suite that has every single computer office application needed for FREE! Look on C-Net.com and they should have a link. Fortunately I have excel on my work laptop, plus I can print double sided from the office as well. Depending on the font I'm sure I can fit >200 caches on a page. The only other thing I can think of is having mapSoucre City Navigator loaded onto your unit so you wouldn't have to look up directions. My copy should be here Wed. Anyone else using a similar method? Quote Link to comment
