  1. I10 East Caching

    If this one is enabled by the time you make your trip, I'd highly recommend it: #Moonrising
  2. USGS Quad Maps

    When I was working on that challenge, I opened the .kml with the grid in Google Earth and then generated a .gpx from GSAK with all the available caches and added it to GE as well. That allowed me to easily determine my targets for the day. Maybe a bit clunky, but it worked well enough for me. You won't have the caches displayed graphically by grid, but in the remote quadrants there are so few caches available that making a list in some format is easily done.
  3. GSAK Use

    Tuba_dude, you need to update GSAK. The current version is, and I think one of the maintenance releases includes an automatic reminder to renew your access token.   Menu Bar>Tools>Check for a newer version of GSAK or simply select these options:  
  4. Garmin 64 series v4.00 Firmware Update Out

    Tried using both the aftermarket maps and the Garmin maps (bought them before I knew how good the aftermarket maps are) with no success and also tried direct send, dropping the .ggz file directly into the GGZ directory on the Garmin, and sending with the Garmin export macro. None of these methods allows the "unknown" caches to be displayed. Also, .ggz will not display child waypoints on my 64st although I can export the waypoints as a .gpx and load them separately and they will display. 
  5. Garmin 64 series v4.00 Firmware Update Out

      I've noticed this problem specifically with earthcaches, but after reading this, I'll keep an eye out for similar behavior with Unknown/Not Chosen types as well.
  6. EPIRBs / PLB?

    I'm asking for this one for Christmas. I don't think Santa's likely to bring it though.
  7. Visiting from out of town

      While I've never encountered a brown recluse outside of a domestic environment, I've found black widows in many places cachers love to stash caches e.g. under lamp pole skirts, under and behind electrical boxes, and particularly on guardrails. Look before you reach.
  8. Challenge Cache Survey

    In case you missed it in the Groundspeak Newsletter. Here is your chance to voice your opinion on Challenge Caches.
  9. GSAK Wrapper

    For those of us who have never tapped the full potential of GSAK, i.e. learned to create regular expressions and such, this upcoming tool may be helpful:
  10. 2015 Lone Star Roundup

    I plan to sleep in my own bed and then drive the 5 miles or so to the park 
  11. CLAPS 2014 Spring Paddle CITO (Sun. 4/27)

    Looks like I may have an open seat.  However, the only extra PFD is my wife's and she's not very big, so anyone looking for a ride will probably need to scrounge their own PFD.   FWIW, I'm planning to work south of the launch area.
  12. Lawyers, Guns and Money GC52ZMA

      Might the next shooting event be "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner?"
  13. Shoot Your Heart Out Event

      And also, I'd wager, you're an admirer of the colonel.
  14. Geowoodstock XII - Anyone going?

      I'll have to put that little series on the list (pending a review of where they're all physically located).  I wonder if PR would "bless" something like this, but I suspect not.
