  1. I have a few coins that I keep in my collection to be discovered by others, but with a proxy that travels the world. Sometimes the number gets out there due to me sharing at events, so when I get random discoveries on the coin, I'm not sure if it's the original people saw, or a the proxy. There is a local cacher (who's name rhymes with PaytownPert) that had a pathtag-like coin minted but with a TB tracking number on the back (100+ tags with the same trackable number). He hands them out with instructions to just discover the trackable number, buy you can see where confusion could arise if people started trying to "retrieve" them or started placing them in caches.
  2. I think Kenny is right. If the electronic compass is turned on and isn't calibrated properly, it will cause the cache direction pointer on the map screen to swing wildly when walking to a cache. As you are moving, the unit used the changes in GPS position to determine your direction of travel. As you slow a bit, the compass takes over and, if it needs calibration, can cause it to suddenly point the other way. I had trouble with this on my 64s when I first got it and had to recalibrate several times a day and it drove me nuts. Finally, they did a firmware upgrade that seemed to fix it, for the most part. I still try to recalibrate whenever I change batteries. Additionally, when recalibrating, make sure you are out in the open and away from any metal objects. Mine always fails on the pitch axis if I try to calibrate it in the house or while sitting in my truck.
  3. My Nuvi 550 does all that, but it's an older unit and has begun exhibiting the same symptoms you mention with the intermittent connector. I don't think Garmin makes a Nuvi anymore that is considered "geocaching friendly", but you can do a lot with GSAK and the POI loader macros. The Garmin Montana will do what you want, and holds up to 15,000 caches. You can even set it to be in Nuvi navigation mode when in the car mount and then switch to hiking/geocaching mode when out of the car mount. Unfortunately, they're even pricier than $450...
  4. I've noticed how Google Earth now displays in this pseudo-3D view, but garbles everything. I was looking at the unit we built at Exxon right before I retired. I swear those pipes were all straight when we built it!
  5. Yeah, the weekly emails. Or the geocaching blog. https://www.geocaching.com/blog/
  6. Sounds like fun!
  7. That's the one I use. Holds unlimited caches using the GGZ file format. At that price, I may pick one up as a backup!

  13. Looks like fun, but the CLAPS series is ruled out as no motorized craft are allowed in Armand Bayou.
  14. I will when I get around to logging the Mega event.
  15. I resurrected 3 geocoins at GeoWoodstock this weekend: https://coord.info/TBPZMK https://coord.info/TBP2KC https://coord.info/TBNQQK All three had been placed in an unpublished cache by a locked member in 2007. They all belong to other locked members (or sock puppet accounts). I'd love to hear the backstory, but it looks like someone gave up the game and just dumped them in the event. Cool old coins, though!
