Emergency+ app

I've come across an app called Emergency+, it is available for iOS and Android devices. It was developed by the NSW SES but can be used across Australia. Of particular interest to geocachers is that it provides a lat and long for your current location in the format of degrees and decimals and the ad...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

Will you be able to revisit a cache that you have already found and logged, say a month ago, and claim the revisit for a requirement in this game, or do the finds for claiming a requirement for this game need to be first time finds? [-o<

Any more hints? :^o

Yes, covert, I am a person that has trouble with spelling and grammar, I'm dyslexic. However there is a simple way to overcome this problem...

Re: Visiting from Chicago in July

G'day A KiteFlyer Yes, there are some caches on Kangaroo Island. We have a regular event - Pub Lunch/Dinner - in Adelaide and the organsier (The Barramundies) should be able to get one up to fit in with your visit. I suggest trying some of the most recommended caches in and around Adelaide. PM sent.

Re: McKee Clan GeoStreak Update

I'm sorry to hear that your streak is coming to an end McKee's. However I can understand how you feel. 365 days straight is a wonderful achievement, and you will be the second Australian cacher(s) to have reached this magic milestone, well done and congratulations. I know, from experience, the amoun...

Re: KMZ files link

My two bob's worth: GEO-TRAIL!! :-k [-X With everybody using basically the same path to GZ you would soon have a defined path leading to the cache. Potentially a better way to go would be to provide some key waypoints, at a significant tree, a saddle or a usable creek crossing to make the way in eas...

Re: Real or Bogus cacher "dadandadd"

They've been very selective little beavers if they are legit, with cache finds spread from western Victoria to Eyre Peninsula, that I could identify. I came home from a weekend of caching to a log for a find on one of my out of the way caches in the Clare Valley (GC1PV8M), dated 5 July 2009 which ma...
