Re: Geocaching is for geeks? (ABC Radio 25 May 2011)

There were also a few other cachers who called up latter on and mentioned it used GPS. One who challanged geocaching the notion that caching was more main stream than geeky.

Re: Painting Cache Containers

I have some sistema boxes and I was wondering what is the best type of paint to use to camouflage them. Sistema boxes are a pain as the blue clip gets worn with the pressure when opening and closing. It defeat the camo job if the paint peels off here and exposes the bright blue. When you do paint t...

Once you stick them down you can't pull them off again. Then they take up to 7 days to get to their full strength. We used them for putting our logo on...

Re: Unable To Find Flat / Matt Green or Brown Spray Paint

Personaly there is not much difference in hiding between a great camo job and a ok camo job in most hides, as the staight edges of the container/ ammo boxes do not normally occour in nature and give it away. Rather than thinking of the perfect colour combination, how about thinking of changing the s...

Re: INCAR GPS

I have a Navman MY50T, I uploaded all the caches in NSW as points of interest. They show up as a little pins on all the maps. It can also alert you when you are in a certain radius of one. The only draw back is it seems impossiable to search for a individual cache name. This unit has traffic alerts ...
