Adopting out caches

Sadly the CarrollEyres are leaving our state and thus leaving behind some favourite remote area caches. We have a couple cachers who would love to adopt them but how. The process must be too simple for me to understand. The GC caches were relatively easy to transfer so I suspect that GCA will be jus...

Re: Mates, Friends, On nodding terms.

And that is a bit of logic that eluded us because of the extrapolation of the concept of logging your own cache. We never logged our own events because we never log our own traditional caches as found....though a couple have shocking cases of cache drift and deserve to be logged as found. :) Anyway ...

Re: Mates, Friends, On nodding terms.

I was wondering if Event organizers can be entered into the formula for "Mates". The CEyres have run a few events (Geosports) and there are a handful of cachers who have turned up to every event (redtag, Cheesypigs, Dippedidooda) and we would say they are closer to us (both personally and caching wi...

Re: Who to blame? The cacher? The GPS? Moi?

Hmmmn sometimes I blame the tool especially since I starting using two GPSr's to determine co-ordinates. I found that the challenges of finding co-ordinates in steep, tree infested, cloud clogged conditions forced the tools to make guesstimates of where they were. :wink: The accuracy of 20+ m is to ...

Many thanks for all of the great work that you are doing...however you can not live on thanks alone especially if maintaining the website eats into your caching time... Most dedicated cachers that I have met (not many but still) have said they would be happy to throw some money into the hat as they ...

Sort of familar shopper

Forthferalz has found several of my caches and I was naturally curious about who they were. Investigations through logs and photos gave me a reasonable idea of who she was and that she had recently been OS. Fast forward through to tonight where I was hunting for some dinner in the local supermarket ...

Thanks Caught at Work and Swampy for the advice. I now have a pretty table, just no time to add the info until late tonight. Is it possible for people to download the waypoints out of this table or do they have to manually enter each of the co-ordinates? I would be a manual enterer in any case. Is t...

At a recent scout training day I built a shelter shed with members a nearby caching family, not knowing who they were. As we basked in the glory of our structure not falling down we discovered that both of us geocache to find interesting places. While we were chatting another scout leader butted in ...

Adding Tables to Cache Pages

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but some one will tell me where to go (hopefully politely) if it wrong. I am referring to the GeoSport In Devonport (GA1176) page that I am helping organise. How do I add tables to the page? I have a table for competitor teams and another for ...

I must admit I keep changing my idea for a logo. I will have a session with the kids on the weekend and try to incorporate what has happened to O2 (Odd as well) into the design.
Hopefully we have not bitten off more than we can chew.

Even though I have a borrowed GPSr (thanks Snuva its heaps of fun) I still like using a Silva compass and I have just bought some topographic maps. The Silva compass makes me look around and to take more notice of where I am. SO do binoculars. Other useful things to take are guides to plants (is tha...
