  1. GSAK Use

    If the child waypoints all have some common item, it should be possible to filter for those caches from the "Children" tab under filters. However, if you only want to send specific child waypoints from a cache that has multiple child waypoints, i.e. only parking coordinates from a cache that has trail head and other waypoints set as well, that's above my level. If you go to one of the numerous GSAK help forums, perhaps someone might write a RegEx statement for you that would pull out only what you want. There are people on some of the forums with knowledge many orders of magnitude above mine when it comes to that sort of thing.
  2. GSAK Use

    The flag has nothing to do with whether or not the child waypoint is displayed. It is a means of "flagging" a cache or waypoint for some operation such as a filter. I suggest using the Garmin Export Macro which allows export of child waypoints in various formats. Note that if you use the .ggz file format, the child waypoint(s) must be exported as POIs. If you are loading as .gpx, then they will export as part of the .gpx file. http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=15866
  3. Google Earth Pro?

    I don't think the plain vanilla version allows you to draw circles and such, but it's so long since I used the regular version that I'm no longer sure.
  4. Cachly?

    I have no personal experience, but some of the San Antonio area cachers that I know really love Cachly.
  5. Has GC stopped supporting encryption of logs?

    I didn't switch to the new version, so I hadn't noticed, but it does appear to be missing.
  6. Has GC stopped supporting encryption of logs?

    Put the part that you don't want encrypted in [between brackets].
  7. It's a sad day...

    I'd been hoping to get to that one since I've been living here, but it's only been available for a day or two, and I missed the few windows of opportunity. Sad to see it go.
  8. I've been everywhere?

    Just checked, and I qualify. Guess I'll have to go sign it some day. As I was scanning through my GSAK DB, I happened by chance to land on a particular cache and heard the trademark "bosun's whistle" sound effect. RIP Bosun.
  9. How far can you move a cache?

    I've never heard of a specific distance, so I suppose it would be up to the reviewer. At some point common sense would be a factor e.g. to move a cache from Beaumont to El Paso. Why?
  10. I've been everywhere?

    I think you're talking about I've Been Everywhere Challenge--Texas but the challenge is to visit all the towns and cities mentioned in the song "I've Been Everywhere (In Texas)."

  12. Prime Reviewer

    This was just posted on the Centex FB group by Reviewer Revan and West Texas Reviewer: Dear Texas Geocaching Community, Yesterday we received the sad news that Prime Reviewer had passed away earlier this year. Prime Reviewer worked as a Reviewer for Texas for over 13 years, for the majority of those years he was the only Reviewer in the State of Texas. This in itself is a great accomplishment and without his work geocaching in Texas wouldn't be nearly what it is today, what many people don't know is how much other work he did to help geocaching on a global scale. Prime wrote many scripts for other reviewers to use to make the job of reviewing much simpler and has saved reviewers thousands upon thousands of hours of time spent reviewing. He also wrote a number of scripts for geocaching users to use to help their geocaching experience as well as a coordinate checker system many geocachers have used over the years called Evince. We are very sad to hear of his passing and will do our best to continue his legacy Reviewing in Texas. Thank you, The Texas Review Team West Texas Reviewer Reviewer Revan
  13. Strange Coordinate System

    I thought that claim by the parks department person sounded a little hard to believe. I had previously heard that the best accuracy was about one centimeter but it looks like it's a bit better than that.
  14. Strange Coordinate System

    Thanks for the research - lots of good info there. I particularly like the conversion tool link and that one gets bookmarked for possible future use.
  15. I emailed the San Antonio Parks Dept this morning and got this quick reply this afternoon.

    This is state plane coordinats for the more expensive Survey grade GPS, not your less than hand helds.

    The accuracy of the gps numbers are to the 1000 of an decimal inch, they geocachers would have to calculate it to what they use.

     

    Coordinates for this spot for Geocaching is 29* 29’54.91” N

                                                                                           98* 42’30.71”W

                                                                                           872’ Elevation

     

    This beta conversion tool gets you pretty close.
