and to the second part of the question: online is an option, I used ebay from US a year ago, and that was great value for less money for a device not available at that time in Australia...

Have a look at the sticky topics of that thread:

That should serve as good discussion point, although it might get a bit too detailed...

I do not understand this EC discussion. I like the variety of caches that gives us more room for nice caches. I personally think the deletion of Virtuals and Locationless ones was wrong. Also I do not see the need for a 160 m rule for ECs. When GC now opens wherigos I feel that goes a bit into money...

Yes that is a way, but unfortunately GC.com has not that function. In Germany I think some of the regional forums took on an idea for the best cache of the last month. But again there it was more mouth to mouth propaganda which helped me to get to the cache I was refering to to get to roughly 360 fo...

In total I think the percentage of goodies is going down, but this is mere due to the increasing number of average to crap caches. From Germany I can tell there was an episode when each and every tree in 160 m radius without a WP inside that radius was equipped with a micro in some regions. I did no...

Your understanding is not correct. A cache is not considered a waypoint in this context. You are looking for a cache that has intermediate waypoints, not a cache that uses other caches or travel bugs to achieve. Hi, thanks for making me change my plans. In other words I accept your decision. Howeve...

18. Modern Pentathlon and 27. Triathlon Does a puzzle listed cache, that requires information to be gathered from at least 2 or 4 spots count? E.g GCQHDV - Witch Cache Ahhhhh! Now I understand. I was very confused there for a while. 'fraid not :-( The clue caches would not be considered waypoints a...

I think at the end the leading forum will represent the leading platform. However, there is a need to looking over the fence and covering all cache labbeled tupperware, ammo tins and other containers (just thinking of some recent finds). I assume no one wants to be in charge of other tupperware or a...

Dear all, I think a national organisation might be really the need for the NPWS just in order to get them a contact point. However such a central point should at the end represent the cachers in Australia or a state. And there starts some problems: The cachers may use differnt platforms gc or gc.com...
