Re: Suggestion: display o-ordinate format alternatives

We used to use UTM all the time in the Good Old Days(tm), i.e. in the days before GPSrs had maps on them. We noticed that the Sydways street directory had numbers on the grid that were the last few digits of the UTM coords, meaning that we could get the coords of the next waypoint of a multi or a p...

Re: Forum Moderators

You want to see a flame war? Go to the groundspeak forum and start a thread saying you think people shouldn't carry guns while caching! :-" I follow a couple of hiking forums in the US and the flame wars that go on over guns is just beyond belief. Trust me this place is very civil compared to other...

Re: It had to happen at sometime

...its seems that this area in parts illegal crops are grown... How little things have changed. Some 20+ years ago some guys I knew found a crop growing in the scrub on the other side of the creek from that cache.

Re: Documentary About Geocaching

Any chance of getting it on YouTube or similar? When I clicked on the main video link it told me I had to be a member so was just about to exit when I thought I would try the link at lower left. Yes, a copy on youtube would be nice as Facebook didn't like the version of flash I am running on 64 bit...

Re: GCA listings of caches in areas where geocaching is banned

Re: Do we get double points for visiting last 5 geocaches TWICE?

Dropped my mobile phone while placing a cache once. Had to go back several hours later and locate it via the ring the phone and listen method. My sometime caching buddy left his very smelly cycling gloves inside a cache once. Took him a couple of minutes and lots of bad words to work out where he ha...
