  1. I can't figure out how to encrypt part of a log anymore. Has GC thrown that feature away? If so, and you want to encrypt part of your log you can use my utility which you can find here
  2. test
  3. To whom it may concern: Kenny solved my direction pointer swinging around. Turning the compass off fixed it. I guess I should have taken the hint from HC's point about it swinging widely when the compass was uncalibrated, but I mistakenly thought when the compass screen was hidden the compass was turned off, but it isn't.
  4. Remarkable, I must have stumbled onto four cachers in the last couple of weeks who have changed their names. Did georeyna and her significant other separate or did he just quit caching.
  5. Does GC's name search not work right anymore? I've searched for three names in the past couple of weeks and it just sits there -- doesn't say couldn't find that name, nothing. I searched just now for Georeynozos and got the same result.
  6. I'm not sure where you got a terrain rating of 5. It isn't so much seeing what I want to see, I'm no longer able to climb a fire hydrant, so I look more carefully at caches above 2 terrain
  7. I guess I'm the only person who posts questions here. I'm not exactly sure what elevation change means, but is it were me, I would count climbing on top of a fireplug an abrupt elevation change.
  8. How much climbing is accepted before a cache has a Terrain rating greater than 1.5? https://coord.info/GC6WZAM Read hint.
  9. I've complained about this problem before but I spent the afternoon yesterday and part of the morning today calling Garmin trying to figure out why the pointer on my 62s jumps around. On average, as I'm walking to a cache it jumps back and fourth by about 45 degrees. I've now made six calls to Garmin and tried one chat about this. Of of these 7 people only one has ever geocached and I don't think the others have ever used a handheld GPSr to go to a location. Each tech makes changes and asks me to do a test. Which requires I hang up, go outside in 95 heat and a broiling sun and do testing, then call back. I've been through this kind of maddening cycle before, so with each tech I ask, "Now, after I do your test will we know the answer and there will be no more tests?" They each assure me it will. When I call back I get a different tech with different good ideas for things to try that require I hang up and round-and-round it goes. Other than the one cacher, they try to imagine what I'm describing and then dream up reasons it could be happening. In the chat I thought I would never get the guy to look at the video I'm posting below. But, even then he had new ideas and wanted to run me up the flagpole some-more. I finally gave up with him a canceled the chat. I've tried twice unsuccessfully to speak to a manager. "None are in the area now." and "My manager's on the phone but I'll leave him a note and he'll call you back. Not so far. https://youtu.be/5RABul0RjA0
  10. I stumbled across it. I can't remember where now.
  11. But, it's still active. It just moved to Houston recently.
  12. I'm the last person to care about jerimy's arbitrary and capricious rules, but I thought traveling caches were outlawed a long time ago. This one seems to be alive https://coord.info/GC4241 So, what's the deal?
  13. I see. Given the number of people who cache using a cell phone, it makes the function pretty useless.
  14. All three of my caches in Challenger Park have been muggled twice and one of them three times in the last few months. Best I can tell, no other caches in the park have been bothered. In the screen capture below you can see that all caches are active except mine. One of mine that is disabled isn't grayed out?? But, I looked at the others and saw none have gone missing in the last several months. So, I decided to look at the "Audit Log" to see who had been to the cache pages since the last find 'til it went missing. I don't see anyone who went and didn't find or log a find or DNF. But, I see they have been found by people not in the Audit Log. According to GC's definition the Audit Log is supposed to show everyone "who viewed your cache" So, how could people be finding it yet never visiting the cache page?
  15. Thanks for the replies. I forget I don't get emails telling me that people have responded.
