    Here is a gpx file of offbeat tourist attractions that will load on most GPS'r (automotive and handheld) that is full of these things. It is from an automotive GPS site I have been a member of for years.

    Welcome to the hobby, great fun, great folks.
    If you get to Tanglewood quick enough the Channelview thing wont be held against you.

    1. Yes, Garmin NUVI 2797. I convert the GPX file I create in GSAK to a POI (.gpi) with POILoader (Garmin app) so the geocaches show up on the map better as it lets me use various size .bmp files for the icons and allows basically unlimited geocaches (using a gpx file will limit you to about 2,000 caches). I have 11K caches loaded on my nuvi at all times.

    Crap! I had not noticed that. That took care of it. Thanks!!
    Thanks, that worked as well and give me more options to boot.

    I liked the google maps (sat maps) better than the choices we have now.

    I wish they would bring back the old maps as well, their current satellite choices are not so good.

    You must have been looking at the $5K level geotours that come with "Vapor Advertising" that gets encoded in overhead jets con trails at 35,000 ft in 12pt Arial font.
  9. GASTX added a post in a topic Rite-In-The-Rain InkJet Paper   

    I finally bought a laser printer (HP LaserJet Pro 400) as I print a lot of black and white text and my ink jet (HP OfficeJet Pro 8620) is just to slow and in an ink eater so it just gets used for picture printing or other color needs.
    I have used the RITR laser paper on a laser printer and it is great, never have tried the ink jet paper though. To dang expensive!!!

    What does the fee pay for anyway? Or is it just a honorarium to GS?

    2015 Lone Star Roundup
    Who is planning on going?
    My wife and I will be staying in one of the air conditioned cabins at the park along the river Friday and Saturday night.
    We haven't been to one of these so not sure what to expect at the event itself.

    It took a lot of potatoes, pennies and zinc nails to power the state last year. Both my parents were born in Ark and are going to kick my butt for that comment (if the rocks in their shoes dont slow them down enough to catch me). Sorry for the off topic post
