Re: Leaving cash good or bad ??

Sometimes I might leave some for FTF but usually it's in the form of a scratchie.

Re: Geocaching Africa?

There aren't that many caches in 'remote' Africa but in Cape Town and Semi remote south Africa we found some great caches including one on an abandoned fort from the Boer war that is little known about

If it is paperless (as the garmin website says) then I will consider buying one. What GPS chip does it have?

Re: Cache contents what do you leave and why?

And I can't let these go! I don't think anyone cares any more This is a LARGE cache, and it’s full of treasure. There are fine fabrics, precious stones, exotic fragrances, jewelry, antiques and money. Lots of money. And it averages 4 finds a year ](*,) It is also a rather harder than average cache ...

I have found many virtuals so I don't think I'll have too many left. I've been to the fish markets cache twice bu...

On the Mac its the Grab tool http://en.wikipe...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

Does anyone know of a geosportz macro for GSAK? I use GSAK 100% of the time for my research for Geosportz but I simply make up my gsak filter for whichever requirement I'm trying to target. eg Multi, not found by me (not archived of course) and then I work out how many points I want it to be and ma...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

Do Pterodactyls count for animal powered flight (just checking in case the animals have to be alive today)? Also, is the name of the animal that flies used as the title (and maybe questions about that animal as clues for a mystery cache) enough to relate the cache to animal powered flight? Or do th...
