Re: Where do you see geocaching in the next 10 years?

Too many restrictions, from GC and land owners/managers (parks etc)
Sites like GCA wil be the place to find the better caches.

Re: Garmin Oregon 500 Series with digital Camera

If your other waypoint are uploaded with a different file name or created on the oregon they willl have a different file name.

Re: Garmin Oregon 500 Series with digital Camera

If you use GSAK you could change, delete or add caches then upload the gpx file with the same name. That would over write the existing file and make the changes you want

Geocaching - Sport or Hobby?

A few of us were talking today and we could not decide if caching is a spot or a hobby.

Some are competitive :twisted: others take a more leisurely pace or could it be both depending on the day or a FTF
