Happens to the best of us though...

Just like to point out a fellow SA cacher went to one of my caches the (unexpected) direct route and went over the cliff it was on when they arrived at the *top*. Cache was rated as 4 1/2 star and was a freeclimb from the bottom. They suffered no major injury after a 5m tumble and fall. :o I felt pr...

Zytheran comes up with mostly his own ideas thank you!:idea: That's why the difficult ones are few and far between. Were you perhaps thinking of White ?? More difficult ones will follow although I must say I like the idea of combining a puzzle cache with public art. hmmm, might see what sort of gran...

Conerting maps..

In converting any data you need to find a common format that both pieces of software can read or write to. What's below is about the vector maps.From the Garmin point of view if you can get the Magellan maps into "Polish" format they can then be opened in MapEdit (for a quick visual check) and then ...

USA Legends's

I too have an import GPS with a US basemap and no , you can't replace it but as the previous post mentioned, other maps can appear on top. I had heard the basemap for Oz was pretty crap anyway for what I wanted which was national parks and remote bushwalks. My solution which was worked out before pu...

Article for Adelaide broadsheet...

I would have thought for the investment of 1 hour of the reporters time, the best bet would be to grab them at their office, log in at their desk, find a nearby cache and just do it, explaining as you go along. They should have the skills to write up their experience. Around the CBD are some interes...

caching on video...

"I'd like to have a "highlights package" I could show people when they ask what caching is about. "

I bought a Legend with a USA Basemap..

Some feedback from someone who bought a Legend from the USA via EBay. I had a budget of under $300 last Christmas to get a GPS and wanted a decent one. :roll: The comparison came down to one with altimeter/compass and one with mapping. I had already choosen Garmin as I wanted to make my own maps eas...

Easy way to view multiple cache location graphically?

Is there an easy way to have a rough map down to say 1cm= 1km on the PC screen that shows all the currect caches near a certain place? Currently if I'm going somewhere and plan to cache I have to, 1: lookup cache with postcode of many places on way, 2: download heaps of loc files (20 caches at a tim...
