Re: New England Power Trail?

I think the general consensus was that it was great fun to do for the 3-4 hours that it took to find them all but anything longer would become boring. There is a variety of cache types and hides so that for the most it was easy to remember the finds. If they were all just eclipse containers stuck t...

Re: Report GCA Site issues here

GCA has that as diff 2, terrain 3 It looks like it was changed recently and the feed hasn't picked it up. I've changed the D/T accordingly and your graph is now updated. Hi CraigRat, Thanks for that. Graph is now showing correctly. When it was not showing I thought that the owners must have dropped...

Re: Report GCA Site issues here

Remember there is a delay between what you post on GC and what appears here on GCA as the faeries do their magic. The quick alternative is to go to the cache you found on GC, download the GPX to somewhere on your computer. Then go to the Imports section under the Cacher Page here and import that GP...

Re: Report GCA Site issues here

Hi there, Over the weekend I did Thunderbolt cache GC2YWJ9 and it is rated as a 3.5 terrain and 2.5 difficulty. The cache has been recorded in my finds and shows up in the numbers but when I go to the graph of terrain and difficulty no 3.5 difficulty cache shows up. Can someone help me understand pl...

Re: The longest GCA power trail in Australia (idea)

I'll be in Birdsville on Friday 15th! Also Thargominda on 16th if anyone wants caches placed. Why don't you place a cache anyway :) I might. We are flying in and there isn't one at the airport so that may be what I do. This is the 3rd go we have had at going. East coast low stopped us about a month...

Re: Let's Register more caches on GCA

I just published a new GA cache. Mainly for those who live on the NSW far north coast. BUT others may be interested to follow it. GA3207. Have fun people.

Re: Lat and long help please.

01°36′48″S, 037°27′39″W Looks like the go.... Up of the north east coast of South America. BUT unless there is a submarine cache nearby there won't be an option. If I use the other bearing I end up
52°07′21″N, 056°36′20″W In Newfoundland.

Re: Lat and long help please.

You need to be sure exactly what you want with this one? You are talking Lat/Long and Bearing, but what type of bearing? Grid or Plane or do you actually want Azimuth? You sound like you are talking in different hemisheres? You might outline this a little further. What sort of distances are you exp...

Re: Lat and long help please.

Using Papa Bear's link I ended up with this info
Distance: 16440 km
Initial bearing: 035°10′06″
Final bearing: 159°23′02″

So now I need to go on the bearing along away from me for 16440km. I suspect I need the 035°10′06″ as the bearing from me southwest. Would this be right?

Re: Lat and long help please.

I really mean that if I drew a line from the most NW cache I have found through my home co-ords and continued along the same path SW where would I end up if I went the same distance from home as the NW cache is.

Lat and long help please.

Can anyone tell me how to do a reciprocal bearing?? On a lat/long? I am not even sure that is what I actually mean. I have the co-ords for the cache furtherest north and west from my home and am looking to work out a cache that is the same South and East of home. Because I am E153 and the northern c...

Re: Spam ... or an Oz cacher in distress?

I had a PM back from tronador confirming the account has been hacked. However she also confirmed that I wasn't in her address book at that email (or in fact any, we have only ever corresponded via here or GC PMs). So exactly how the scam emailers managed to get the addresses to send it to is anothe...

Re: Spam ... or an Oz cacher in distress?

I got the same message this morning and messaged her on Facebook to say it looked like her email account had been hijacked. As caughtatwork said, it's a scam. Anyone that replies will most likely be given western union account details to transfer funds to. I got the same message today and I don't h...
