Re: lost a note pad?

Does it have a cache name or code (e.g. GCnnnn or GAnnnn) one the front cover/page somewhere?

Ghosts of caches past on Nuvi maps

I have a Garmin Nuvi 2350 which I use for in-car navigation. However, Ive noticed that when I drive around, caches that I have already found still appear on the map - the little box symbol with the GC/GA code next to it. It's becoming quite frustrating, as I drive along and boxes come into view, but...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

Can I just say how much fun I've been having - firstly in the planning/strategy, working out which requirements are acheivable, juggling the options etc, but also going out and doing things* I didnt expect to find myself doing in the course of "normal" geocaching. I've never completed one of these ...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

My closest to home by posted coordinates was a puzzle cache. The yesterday somone published a new cache even closer to home (both posted coords and GZ). Fortunately it is also a mystery/micro so it hasnt messed up my strategy, but I think I'd better go find it before someone else gazumps me! Check ...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

Just a question about the Shooting requirement. When I look up my home coordinates, the closest unfound cache to my home is a puzzle cache. I have now figured out the solution to this puzzle and the GZ is not the closest unfound cache to my home. Which cache counts in this situation? Which ever you...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

I clicked on the 'Contact an Administrator' link on cachinggames.com, as I wished to get confirmation of the suitability of a couple of specific caches. But there are no administrators to contact. I will PM my questions to caughtatwork instead. It works to just post it here - C@W catches them prett...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

For the 4x4 relay, do the other 3 cachers need to log the find, or would a photo of them at GZ suffice? They need to log the find. You really can't go find a cache that others have previously found. It wouldnt be that they've previously found it, just that they're a bit slack about logging. But I'l...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

Does anyone know of a way to search for certain numbers in the coordinates of caches You mean you HAVEN'T run a full unfound query, imported it into GSAK, exported it to excel and started up the mother of all spreadsheets? Or was I the only one doing that on Sunday afternoon? Yep - Sunday afternoon...

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

My closest unfound to home (listed coords) is called Bulls Eye. Surely that has to be worth a bonus?!?
