Re: Garmin Software :- Base Camp vs Mapsource

Re: Multi Cache points

g'day hobie1kanobie,

There are a lot of multi caches available along the line you are talking about. If you are after real challenges try some of the puzzle (unkown) caches some of these should be more than enough for a challenge.

I to would also be willing to pay a small membership fee. While I grab Cache details from GC I spend a considerable time in GCA forums. In reality it's not a lot to ask the more active cachers are likely to spend more on trinkets, caches, fuel, food etc etc. I would hate to see the site go down the ...
