Step on no pets!

After seeing Vulture's recent coordinate palindrome waymarks I decided to take another shot at it.  That description is a doozy! We managed to find a few possible spots to check out, and hopefully we will be rewarded with a successful waymark.

 

Tricky coordinate game!

If anyone is interested - I just created a Notepad file that can quickly be changed to get all 360 Palindromes for any whole degree Latitude / Longitude combination.

Replace a, b, c, & d  individually with the proper numeral to get the final coordinates.

Nab 00.0dc Wcd 00.0ba    Nab 10.0dc Wcd 00.1ba    Nab 20.0dc Wcd 00.2ba    Nab 30.0dc Wcd 00.3ba    Nab 40.0dc Wcd 00.4ba    Nab 50.0dc Wcd 00.5ba
Nab 01.0dc Wcd 01.0ba    Nab 11.0dc Wcd 01.1ba    Nab 21.0dc Wcd 01.2ba    Nab 31.0dc Wcd 01.3ba    Nab 41.0dc Wcd 01.4ba    Nab 51.0dc Wcd 01.5ba
Nab 02.0dc Wcd 02.0ba    Nab 12.0dc Wcd 02.1ba    Nab 22.0dc Wcd 02.2ba    Nab 32.0dc Wcd 02.3ba    Nab 42.0dc Wcd 02.4ba    Nab 52.0dc Wcd 02.5ba

Replace a with 3, replace b with 9, replace c with 7, replace d with 2. If Longitude is over 100, replace W with W1.

N39 00.027 W72 00.093    N39 10.027 W72 00.193    N39 20.027 W72 00.293    N39 30.027 W72 00.393    N39 40.027 W72 00.493    N39 50.027 W72 00.593
N39 01.027 W72 01.093    N39 11.027 W72 01.193    N39 21.027 W72 01.293    N39 31.027 W72 01.393    N39 41.027 W72 01.493    N39 51.027 W72 01.593
N39 02.027 W72 02.093    N39 12.027 W72 02.193    N39 22.027 W72 02.293    N39 32.027 W72 02.393    N39 42.027 W72 02.493    N39 52.027 W72 02.593

This continues down for 60 lines.

I'd love to have that Notepad file! Can you please email it to me? Thanks!

the category description needs to be re-written. Parts of it explains variants of coords and says they are OK to use, then hidden elsewhere it says variants are no longer accepted. No bold lettering, no different colors!

 

P.S. You need to do a GPS Tracklog Art. I need a visit for that category, and the only ones around are mine.

I caught that, and appreciate the warning.

If I can ever figure out the tech aspect and how to get a screenshot, I'd absolutely love to!

GPS-a-Sketch!

I can't wait to try it out! The tech sure has changed since I first looked at that category. 

 

I hope they accept screenshots of GPS app tracklogs!

We made several embarrassing attempts today. I love the app I'm using, though. I need some practice!

Thanks for the tracklog art nudge, Vulture. Waymark approved. That was a challenge!

the part that took me so long was figuring out something besides the star and envelope that most have done. Turned out spelling my name was very easy. Now I'm thinking of doing a more complicated star figure.

Great work on the sq root!

I snagged two palindromes on my trip. While getting photos for one, on a two lane curvy road with fast cars, I spotted an artistic manhole cover and of course I had to take photos of it, not even knowing if it was already waymarked. That was a challenge! 

 

"OK to go. No cars.

Abort! Abort! Car coming!

OK, it's clear. You can go.

Back up, back up. Car coming!'

You can go now.

Get out! Get out! Car coming!

It's clear now.

Abort! Abort! Car coming!"

 

I was direction disoriented since my focus was facing down, and my biggest fear was running in the wrong direction when an alert was given. That was really scary! I took about a dozen attempts to get a close-up photo.

I hope I won't be tempted to visit that waymark.

I feel sick to my stomach. I switched two digits and didn't get Toro's right. I'm very very disappointed in myself for not triple checking while there. I feel just sick about it and now I have to let him know.

 

Edit: I posted a note on two close geocachers asking if anyone can help.
