Re: Maps for caching in Japan?

Thanks for all the advice so far. We leave Monday for just over 2 weeks. And to add more interest to the trip, we are running a meet and greet in Kyoto! So, far we have one attendee!

Re: Caching in India

Maps for caching in Japan?

We are off to Japan soon and I have been struggling to find suitable maps. I have not found any Garmin maps? But I have found some that are for sale on ebay that are "garmin compatible".

Re: GCA listings of caches in areas where geocaching is banned

I think there is a need work with DECC/NPWS in NSW to develop a policy that allows sensible caching. This has been done overseas in Canada where guidelines have been agreed. However, this will take time.... From a purist perspective I can see why there is opposition, but I think there are some benef...

Re: Moveable Cache Race

Crystal warrior and I have prepared our moveable cache and it's ready to go. While we are happy to win any of the prizes, we'd particularly like to win the most moves for this one. :lol: It lends itself to short, quick hops!

Let the race begin!
