    No worse than Brawndo.   Maybe.

    HC, I looked in the Rogue's Gallery and I'm pretty sure that is a younger photo of Thot.

    Was thinking in general about newer cachers.

    I don't know about heroic.  But he's not pictured a lot.
    You've checked the local EarthCaches, right?  Wetlands of Clear Creek has a bunch, as I'm sure others will, too.  Photos can't be required any longer but people usually do it if asked on those anyway.

    It ends Sept. 2 so that may not be viable.
    I'm planning on getting my CITO at tuba-dude's Yak event, which will get the last one I need and the bonus/hero one.
    Thanks, tuba_dude for getting that changed to a CITO!

    People have different databases for different purposes.  Anything in my home area goes into one database for me "Default".  That's home (Clear Lake), downtown, Baytown, Sugar Land, Galveston. All those get imported into one database.
    If I'm traveling or heading to a weekend softball tournament with/for my daughter I'll create another for that area.  I'll put the PQ of the route in there and one or two (or more) 1000 cache PQs of the areas we will be and pull it all into one database.  Then I can simply export that entire database to my GPS.
    For home ones, I have to narrow down the radius to get the number to one that will fit on my GPS with the other caches I have and keep on there for maintenance purposes, as it's over 5000.
    If I won't be going back anytime soon I normally delete that database after they are logged.  The ones you found will show up in your My Finds.  Now, why you can't download that PQ the same way as the others.....

    450s on ebay often go cheap.  Much cheaper than that and I'd think you end up with a pointer, cache name and GC number and that's it --- eTrex style.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Love that video.  It's really well done.  After the 3rd or 4th time I get it. 
    Nice pics.  Thanks for sharing.  Welcome back home, Hans.

    Three deer were at S CLAPS 54 today.  Shallow area and I needed to get to GZ.  I got to within 25' and 2 jumped up on land but turned around to watch me.  I got to 20' and the front of my yak was pushing into the hyacinth.  I stopped and the little one on the right in this video started walking to me like a dog.  Then about 10' from the front of my yak it realized its friends were gone so it bolted to be with them.Maintained the cache and I could hear them walking back to the lake.  When I was a ways away they were playing in the water.  Eating the hyacinth (or something) and splashing the water with their front feet.  Was a really cool paddle moment.
    Sorry -- can't get it to pull in the Instagram video (Cachestacker) although it shows it in the preview.  IMG_7525[1].mov

    Welcome aboard.  Have seen your name on some logs.  There is a paddle event on 8/30 -- look at the maps (Bay Area Park) and shout box.  I'm actually off to do some maintenance on the south end right now.  Hope to see you out there!

    The small ones (like in GASTX's post) are at Harbor Freight at the end-caps by the registers.  They were on sale last weekend (and still may be) for $2.99 for a 2 pack, and they always have 20% off coupons everywhere.
