Or downloading all your caches as individual gpx files to your gpsr I guess. When I started I had neither a smart phone or a hand held GPS, so forget having an app. I printed out the cache on the back of waste paper. I did have a car GPS (they are no good away from the road) which got me close to the cache, but then I had to check the print out of the map and look for other ways to find the cache, such as to attempt to track where others had walked. Sometimes I just stood back and thought, where would I hide a cache. I found 180 caches this way, before I bought a GPS. Then I also paid my first membership. That's when I discovered caches I hadn't been able to see. Was I upset about this? Absolutely not; I thought it was wonderful I hadn't been able to see them, as now I had another set of caches close to home (when I thought I had found them all) I could enjoy finding. I considered them an unexpected present. I didn't get an app until two or three years ago, as phone data was too expensive to buy. But I continued to pay a membership, because the site doesn't run on the fun people are having; it needs hard, cold cash. Over several years, the GPS was far cheaper than paying data on a phone. And I still have and use a GPS. Edited September 24, 2020 by Goldenwattle Quote Link to comment
