My first GCA race (a late starter and non cache owner back then) - this was a fun theme! Time to send Grumpy out of the box in my office he's been for 15 years or so and into the wild blue yonder
Hit as many as I could over the last week - so I've managed to level up from "Dragon Fodder" to "Peasant" - but sadly still haven't managed to win Victoria for team green...

I've been using the OpenMTBMaps for pretty much as long as I've been caching. They're easy to install (on Windows at least - a simple EXE file to run), detailed and able to be customised to suit your GPS screen type at installation time (eg. Wide lines for dull Oregon/Dakota screens). I'm a subscrib...

Got a slap over the wrist for a long lunch break trying to get a not-quite-FTF with a caching workmate.

It seems to work perfectly for GCA caches, but I just can't get it to work with GC ones. I get recent logs and upload My Finds queries but it just seems to a) Not come up with anything for the DateOfPreviousFind b) therefore only gives 0 for MonthsSincePreviousFind... :-\ Any ideas? :-$ You need to...
I prefer having to include GPS in photo (but as I usually use my GPS's camera so I just point them to example the EXIF info as proof of GPS @ location @ date/time if they want to get "picky"...) to having to include myself in the photo. That was one thing that annoyed me about many of the GC.com Cha...
I bought a pack of mini felt-tip markers that had a ring attached but sadly they're thick and hopeless at signing with, and the ring is attached to a plastic clip so can detach anyway... Still come in handy though
I had a great little pen from Japanese visitors to my workplace that was telescopic (single-stage) so would shrink to 3/4-1/2 it's length to fit in your pocket, but expand to make writing comfortable and thus perfect for caching. Sadly I lost it in the grass, etc at on of the caches I visited so hav...
