Someone's gotta be first ...

I'll kick off ...<br> <br> Lleyton's Gates, sometime last year ... after figuring out the original coordinates had been displaced by a minute in latitude, Slider & Smurf with Maccamob in tow (back in the dim dark days when they had less than 50 finds!!) set off to claim the virgin. Found sites #1 an...

Agreed - an idea of the general area is useful, if I want the exact location I can fire up Ozi.<br>
<br>
Why were they removed in the first place? :? We seem to be the only country that doesn't have maps for each cache ...

Urban Easy is the larger of the two, you'd have to look at the size of the TB before deciding where to launch from.

Software

Autocache to generate txt files of cache pages to carry on my PDA, Cachemonkey to manage the waypoints themselves and Ozi to display the waypoints on a map and upload them to our GPS12. But you only let me vote for one program!!

Mapping software

OziExplorer for the mapping, CacheMonkey for the waypoints, and Autocache to suck the cache pages onto my PDA. Works for me, anyway ... :wink:

Access

I've got a 6310i and a Sony Clié, but haven't been able to figure out how to get them to talk via IR yet. Then again, I haven't really had a need to - I carry compressed versions of all my 'not found' cache pages linked from a html index on my Clié. Saves carrying around a sheaf of paper! Now,...

Another vote for static cling, if we actually get to vote? Slider won't let me put stickers on the cachemobile :wink: but inside the windows is OK - even if the tint makes it a little difficult to read.

However, Northern Invaders managed to spot us OK last weekend!! :D

Yeah - we think he's pretty cool too :P Was cruising the web looking for an appropriate mascot many months ago, and found him on a webstore site ... so we had to get a real one too! He travels with us on our trips, and sometimes gets his mug on the site when photos are called for - check out "More G...

Contact icons?

Why isn't our profile showing an icon for email? We've entered an email address, but we don't get an 'email' icon in the row below each of our posts ... is it a glitch, or does it only work for certain email domains?

Hi all

Now, if I could just get uni sorted and finish the backyard, we might be able to get some serious caching done!! :D Not quite in the league of Piggy and GeoCoopers, though - early starts for work usually negate any chance of midnight caching runs. Do we need to add a 'Where's Maccamob' warning page?...

Looks pretty impressive - lots of potential. Very cluttered when you start zooming in, however - perhaps colour coded dots or icons for the various features / caches etc and using something like a mouse rollover event to popup the text? (Apologies, it's been a few years since I've coded in anger...)...
