Re: Garmin Montana

Hmm, the only difference I can see is a camera in the 650 for an additional 80$ usd.

Still, I'd pay that - not having to lug my camera around makes me very happy to have my 550 :lol:

Re: Free micro cache and trackable tag giveaway

Hey Bob,

Do you mean most memorable cache? Or most memorable find of something whilst caching??

Cheers

Re: Geocachestore in Australia still in existance?

Sorry, I should have been clearer. The code was provided by gc.com - I had all my items, I just hadn't activated the trackable. Gc.com were able to provide the code via an email sent to their contact page. I realise it doesn't help those who never received items, but thought the info might be useful...

Re: Geocachestore in Australia still in existance?

I followed the link provided in round circle's post, and received the code no probs.

If I recall correctly, it was a generic code, but of course, I can't find the email - doh!

I guess he staying with me (awww shucks :-& )

Re: Waterproof pants

Or, as a cunning plan M'Lord, why not wear one over and one under - then both sides are happy???

Re: Waterproof pants

+1 for under. Although, it depends on where you're walking - if I'm wandering through scrub, I'd much prefer my gaiters to be taking the bashing from the sharp prickly bits rather than my pants.If I'm wandering along a nicely graded track with lots of side space, I'd probably not bother with the gai...

Re: Oregon 450t - loading GPX files

I have the O550 w/ WinXP and was having similar issues early on, however, in my case, the issues were resolved by ensuring that I used the 'eject USB device' option in XP before I disconnected the O550. For me, the issue seemed to be a combo of a known 'dicky' USB port and the old WinXP issue of the...

Re: Trig points - a general discussion

My problem with the photo reqs is that I use my oregon 550 for the camera - so guess who isn't going to be in the shot and neither is my GPS!!! However, I try to leave the exif info intact (except that if I'm posting piccies in logs for puzzle or multi caches etc as well, I occasionally batch strip ...

Re: Trig points - a general discussion

Personally I would suggest they should be archived if the trig points aren't there. But that's just my opinion. And I would still have no trouble with you claiming the FTF (and only find) for going up there and finding out. If you got a photo with the original base of it then that's probably fair. ...

Re: Trig points - a general discussion

And just to throw some more mud into the water, what if the coords are there (well, they would be wouldn't they - ROFL), there is some form of marker (ie cairn, manmade hole in the rock etc) but its NOT a brass plate or a metal frame thingy?? Two that I have found like this include http://geocaching...

Re: Waterproof notebook on Catch of the Day

Still an hour left, although given the shipping cost , I won't be indulging. If you were going to by multiples, then assuming the postage is flat rate, that'd make it worth while.
