While in the UK last year this was my mode of travel...

 

Ooh. I've looked at renting a canal boat several times. What a wonderful way to go geocaching. Traveling the canals and stopping in little towns along the way to find a geocache or two. When my son was much younger he used to watch a rather silly kids show called "Rosie and Jim". It was about a couple of dolls that lived on a canal boat whose owner would travel the canals in one of those boats and stop to visit various places along the way. The show was goofy but the idea of spending a week or two traveling through England or the midi canals in southern France certainly look very appealing.

:D The Coventry Canal trip was fun and doing the Stairway to Heaven all 21 locks in a single day without interrupt was incredible. Hard part was grabbing a few while running between locks. The Pubs and food was amazing. I was the only cachers of 4 on the trip. Edited by MtnMutt-ProDuckShins

I would love to post a photo of my geocaching vehicle but I am ignorant on how to upload a photo to the discussion as a reply. How do I do so?

You need to have your image hosted on a site somewhere. Then post the link to it in text box after pressing the 'insert image' button in the reply window.....

I think you can use your geocaching image gallery, but don't have to, I just use some webspace my email provider supplies.

 

addit - there is also an 'attachment' area below the reply box, give that a try?

I have tried to attach a photo from my Google Photos site. When I enter the URL I keep getting this: "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this board."

 

Why? Do the admin/mods have an issue with Google?

Tried it again by adding the link, did not work. I think I will have to use the Attach This File function.

Still doesn't work - why not just resize your pic first, then attach it.

I've done that. I take the photos at such high resolution I do not think any amount of cropping will reduce its size. I store them in Google Photos. I may need to open up the ability to view them to anyone, not just Google members. I think that is the problem you are having.

Unless the photos you take (Hubble??) are too large to fit in your PCs RAM (very unlikely), you can resize then to whatever size you want - even avatar sized....

Short of cropping the photo, which is what I do, how else do I reduce a photo that is 5.7 mb in size down to 2 mb or less? I should add once I take a photo I never store it on a computer hard drive. It automatically uploads to my Google Photos account.

Google - 'resize photo' and maybe a term for whatever OS you use, you will have lots of answers

Any image processing app will do it.....

I created a shared folder for my photos. Does this link work?

The link works but as you can see in this forum section most of the posts contain embedded images to that they can be seen in the forum posts. The "Insert Image" function does not allow links to images which don't have a file format extension (that's a function of the forum software and can't be changed). I've tried numerous photo sharing sites and the one I like the most is imgur.com. It's very easy to use, and has an app so that you can send images directly from a smartphone to the site, drag-n-drop from a file system (even an SD card on a digital camera if you've plugged the the camera into a computer).

 

If you can't resize images in a Google Photos account I'd be looking for some other site which allows you do one of the most basic of photo editing features there is.

If you mean for the purposes of things like attaching a photo into a forum discussion I will look into it. If you mean so I can re-size all of my photos I have stored in my Google account, yeah that is not happening. I have tens of thousands of photos uploaded to my Google Photos since 2006. I am not about to run all of them through a photo just re-size them. But I have no problem doing so with a few for things like attaching to a forum discussion.

Guss I need to show mine from both sides:

It has plenty of room for tools of the trade etc, and I let people sign the (trackable) wall inside:

The car might not be as nice as other cars in this thread, but at least it's well equipped for geocaching!

We bring that device with us when caching around the world. And I haven't changed the settings since our last US trip.

But yes, I am a bit weird :)

What is a Snirt?  And did you outrun it with the 4-wheeler, or did it catch you?
