  1. ET Highway Question

    Larry thanks for reply. Looks like you can buy them in large quantities from China but I questioned what the quality was. I know they aint got to be perfect but didnt want complete junk. Josh / Team 150%
  2. ET Highway Question

    For those of you that have done the ET Highway where did you buy the 35 mm film cannisters you took with you? Josh / Team 150%
  3. 2018 Texas Challenge Meeting

    This event has been cancelled. Low number of “Will Attend” and I had to leave town for work emergency. Josh
  4. Ladies & Gents, Several of us have started working together to form the 2018 Texas Challenge Team for SE Texas. We are going to hold our first event (GC7CV3W) on 10/12/17 on the NE side of Houston (yes I'm aware some are going to Roundup on the 12th......only so many days in the month lol). After that we plan to have an event each week on Thursday for a month in each corner of Houston. This year we hope to encourage more participation than in the recent past and start planning earlier than in recent years so we are more competitive when its time for Challenge in Denton. I suggest reading the event page and attend even if you think we aren't interested in actively competing as we are looking for noncompetitive support as well. Finally....even if you have no interest in competing or supporting the team no worries....come join us for some great food....I mean who doesn't like that? Josh - Team 150%
  5. The ones I have found recently have been in pretty bad shape.
  6. Kayaking on Lake Houston

    Ralph, You saved the day with the camera! I got so busy trying not to burn the dogs I only got 6 pictures. Awesome write up as well! We are already trying to figure out how to do a repeat in the fall on a different section of the lake. Josh
  7. 2017 Texas Geocaching Challenge - Tyler, Texas

    Roundup 2017 is in Abilene and hosted by West Texas....I call that central or north but hey whatever lol. 2018 Challenge is Denton hosted by North Texas.
  8. TEXAS Series in GBP - last winter season

    Mcguyvertwo and I need one on the X (DNF), the A, and the S. I know parking is closed on the east side but is it still possible to come in from the east side? We plan to do them but it will be mid February before I can do it due to moving.
  9. Strange Coordinate System

    Here is a decent and easy to understand article on GPS surveying: http://water.usgs.gov/osw/gps/ Here is a CalTrans document on GPS aacuracy requirements for different surveys. 5 mm is the most stringent requirement and used for monuments, etc. http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/row/landsurveys/SurveysManual/05_Surveys.pdf
  10. Strange Coordinate System

    Food for thought: After I saw the accuracy claim I called the surveyor I work with that surveys our deep water well locations (think surveying a spot 10,000' under water) subway tunnels, and surveys in the GPS systems on ships (ie he is one of the best surveyors in the world). He told me 2 things. The first is the most accurate survey possible is about 5 mm by waypoint averaging in 30 min increments over the course of the day to grab different satellite constellations and then performing post processing using tie in points for reference that have been surveyed multiple times over the years. The second is that there really is no "survey grade" GPS. Without the post processing our handhelds pulling off GLONASS, GPS, WAZ, etc are just as accurate if left to waypoint average for the same length of time. Without post processing he says the best accuracy to expect is ~ 3 ft. I confirmed this as he surveyed our farm for us with me clearing survey lines. At the GPS points he waypoint averaged at for 30 minutes and then post processed I can match within 3 to 6 ft if I waypoint average for 3 minutes. Team 150%
  11. Kayaking on Lake Bastrop

    Awesome trip....can't wait to grab the rest at Roundup!
  12. For outrunning gators on CLAPS?

    Kenny....see the max weight capacity limit on it? You and I aint gonna fit hahaha. Its interesting concept but a jet powered aluminum tunnel hull jon boat can do the same and more. Less draft, more load, more stability. The yak is maybe 100 lbs lighter but most arent going to be putting it on their car roof or pickup bed at ~175 lbs so they both end up on a trailer anyway. Josh
  13. I expect to leave them for a month and if no one has agreed to adopt them I will archive them.  In the mean time if any require maintenance I will disable them.

  14. Anybody Want to Adopt My Choo Choo Series?

    Thot....if you leave them in place a little longer myself and mcguyvertwo are going to do the series on a Saturday or Sunday soon. Unfortunately I live on NW side of town and rarely venture down town so I couldn't adopt / maintain them. Josh
  15. Strange Coordinate System

    I'm guessing it is a measured distance from a boundary line / point. We use a similar method to describe oil well locations within the lease section. Josh / Team 150%
