Re: dog poo

I would prefer some sort of polish... Nothing like polishing a turd.

There's that place in Cobargo with the train carriage in the cafe. I had a beautiful milkshake there from the aluminium container. Not too sure about their burgers, but their pies were awesome.

I can pick our first two, but it gets a bit tricky after that. We plonked one in Fish Creek simply because back then it seemed to be in the centre of a huge void.

I quickly hacked the code to get one for VIC - that's all I've got in GSAK - so quick in fact, it still says France in the title...

Does anyone want to host the avi? I'll try to knock together a more professional looking one in the meantime...

It's a pretty big ask to get all of that for $350, and the caching requirements for me are slightly different from in-car navigation. Any GPSr that comes caching with me has to be fairly rugged, and easy to use one handed. My Nokia N95 running Garmin Mobile XT fulfils all but one of your requirement...

Well, of course the Squalids originally come from the Land of No Snakes, so we're a mixture of fascinated and terrified when in contact with these hissy things. Coming through NSW we decided to do a cache at old rail bridge. Squalid husband, oblivious of all but the bridge, strided through the long ...

Careful not to get your Garmin TOPO Australias mixed up with your GPSOZ OZtopos :roll: I eventually settled on the Garmin one - it appeared to have more of the tracks around central VIC than GPSOZ and Shonky, and it has the cutsie 3d thing in the colorado (I reckon it looks way cooler in the ads tha...

I had similar issues with my Colorado after upgrading GSAK. Fixed by clearing everything out, and doing a hard reset (not too sure whether this is the same as the reset you mention). Next I do a gsak File->export->GPX/Loc, and then selecting GPX file version 1.0. The 1.0. version seems to be OK with...

I bet you're not allowed to cache off duty, but while in uniform. It would have to be the best cover though... no muggles coming up "What do you think you are doing?". Gives me an idea for another thread...
