Any thoughts on a Geocaching FAQ forum section?
Only READABLE by all members, but additions, etc by the Admins.

You could list software links, GPSr retailer links, HowTo's, etc.

I know there are a lot on the main page, but it might be handy to look up while in the forum?


There was a FAQ section in the old Forum, but I don't think it's been brought across to this one yet. Darryn, any plans on bringing it across?

I use OziExplorer with The South Australian Topomap Mount Lofty Ranges CD (1:50,000 scale) for metro and nearer country, Switch to NATMAP Raster 250k for further out/interstate. CacheMonkey is good for downloads. I know I'm a dinosaur but I still prefer to look at a paper map.

Too right Piggy! I spend half my day pouring over maps planning my hides and finds. For the June get-together I've already sorted eight caches in eight towns eight times.... :roll:

Post Paper maps.
Great.. yu'll be able to hopefully fix up the shamozzle of maps that will be needed to cover the playing field then !

I'll come and see you, we might have to get something made up specially..

Cache here, Land mine there.

I see that quite a few are using Autocache......... As I'm not familiar with it, what is it? and where can I find some info on it?
