Re: "Throwdown" or "angel cache"?

I would only ever replace the container, if the container was all broken in some way.AND it was in quite a remote area. I would let the CO know. I personally think replacing a cache just because you can't find it, so you can log Found it, instead of DNF, is a little arrogant. If its a DNF its a DNF...

Re: Is it just me?

There is a way you can separate them out int GSAK. I remember asimilar issue with the Remembrance driveway series.

At the end of the day cache owners will name their caches what they want to as it's their right.

Re: NZ

In the early days GC.com only had one state (NZ) for all New Zealand caches. My understanding is that this was done to allow people to easily look at the list of new caches in the search screen and allow them to spot caches nearby. I think the reviewers were adding them initially but can not comment...

That's a bit of a bugger it was great for looking at isolated areas.

Re: GSAK Question

Here's the interesting thing, for those that managed to log it online it stays in your find count. I picked Agent Basil as I thought he must have found it. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx?ul=Agent+Basil shows 1231 records. http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=5faf22d0-c8a4-4b61-93c8-c...

Re: Australian Power Trails

The records need some definition around them to overcome this. Like the Guinness people do. The wiki defines all. http://wiki.geocaching.com.au/wiki/Caching_record#Guidelines_for_most_finds_in_a_day Looks like it hasn't been updated in a while!

Re: WhereIGo & Windows 7 - 64 bit

If anyone wants to have a look at a Urwigo Cartridge I'll happily share a version of one of my local caches that doesn't contain the final location. It might make building the cartridge a bit easier. You can also do an advanced search doe open source cartridges. Yes please Matt. I've only done one ...

Re: Those Badges and those Darned logs!

Quite a few people preface every log with "This is my 409th overall find" or words to that effect. Why do people need to know the number of each find? Just curious. While it's not about the numbers :D :D . . . I do like to keep track. Logs aren't just for the hider, they are a historical record for...
