  1. Cachly?

    Why can't he see anything on the free one? There are better ones out there for a few bucks - Cachly - but it's ok for what it is, considering gc.com made it.
  2. Virtual Reward :)

    Go to your notifications and click add and select virtual. From there you can get notices on publishing, archiving, etc. I've just never had publishing on. And just because he's one of a few in the area (Drew8 got one, too, I hear) that doesn't mean one couldn't be published here. Of course the limit is still 50 miles.... :/
  3. Virtual Reward :)

    Don't forget to go add Virtuals to your published notifications! Since I've been a member none have published... so of course I had no notifications set. It's not global -- it's done by type so you have to go add it.
  4. Google Earth Pro?

    In the Old days, you needed Pro (when you had to have paid or subscribed) to solve East Texas' Hardest Mystery Cache. I think it has those features, but I'm not in front of a computer right now that has it and have never had another puzzle that used that to have to try it. Not that I'm encouraging that kind of thing.
  5. Cachly?

    I'm simply used to the GC app. But the more I use Cachly the more I like it. It doesn't always flow as easily in my mind, but once you get used to it there is more functionality. My favorite is the ability to post more than one photo in a log. I also like that the visit/drop a TB functionality is within the log of a cache. I hate the new drop a trackable in the GC app.
  6. Looks Like a Great Event

    Looks like fun. Now, why Joni had do schedule the eclipse on a weekday when I have to work is beyond me.
  7. GC.com's name search

    if you mean the Find Another Player link, that could be because she's georeyna now.
  8. How much climbing

    Could bring a step-stool.

  11. Best TB resurrection story

    https://coord.info/TB3AQB4 Last log was 8/19/2010. Today I got this: Just received this coin from a Muggle."do you know what this is? I have it now since 2011 and heard you might find this useful " So this coin is finally back in the game!
  12. Muggle, muggle, muggle

    If they view it from the app it may not log. And if they just DL the coords and upload a find from GSAK or go straight to the logging page (i.e., the loophole for family members on premium caches) they won't show in the audit log as they did not visit the main cache page.
  13. Garmin 64 Series Firmware ver 4.70

    The wireless transfer always worked better on my Oregon 450 than the 64s and predecessors. Now that I have "upgraded" (?) to the Oregon 650 that functionality has gone to less functional than the 64s.
  14. A Night on the UHCL Trails Jan 19th

    I hear they'll be doing the night cache. January 19th at 8:00 p.m. https://coord.info/GC6YYGC
  15. Baytown Geotour info here

    Got the mail today and my coin and other prize-level swag was in the mail from Saturday. I turned in my passport on Sunday by e-mail and got a nice acknowledgment back Monday morning saying the coin and swag would go out that week. They are on top of it! Loved the geotour. Took me to a bunch of places I have been to before, but also a bunch of places I've never been to or seen. There are some fun ones, some good containers, and one or two that were pretty challenging. It was a nice mixture all the way around. We ended up going to the Pipeline Grill. Never been there and thoroughly enjoyed it.
  16. Two Copies of a Travel Bug in Circulation?

    I had a frog one once. They put out 5 of them. Not knowing, when I read the description it said to see if you could place it in a new cache before it hopped away. Sure enough, someone 'grabbed' it from me and put it in a cache overseas. So you just drop it and someone retrieves it and thinks someone else hasn't dropped it and .... you get the idea. Times five. If your 2nd copy comes back into circulation it would be like that. But less.
  17. How do you learn about available souvenirs?

    The weekly e-mails that show the events near you, assuming you plugged in some location for yourself in your profile, is normally how I hear about them first.
  18. Garmin 64S on sale $199

    This thread could help you fix that..
  19. Bike and Barge trip - Paris to Bruges

    Awesome. Hope you brought back some good stuff!
  20. RIP HGCS (POLL)

    This is the one site I never want to see go. But too many people are on too many other apps, etc. so the traffic is just not the same. I don't Facebook so it's kinda this or nothing for me.

  22. CLAPS: I Need a Good Paddling! CITO Event

    Agree. Hoping for nice, cool outing that lets us know fall is actually coming. (I can dream, can't I?)
  23. Collapsible kayak?

    You don't think you could say "I'm on a boat" literally anytime if you had that? Or it won't float? Someone had a 3 piece one on CLAPs at an event one time. Wasn't exactly like that, but same concept. Could insert extra pieces to make it a tandem.
  24. Lake Woodlands Kayak Series

    This weekend we went out and did the Lake Woodlands kayak series. It was hot and I baked a little, but nice, calm waters the whole way. And really different than most anywhere else. Mixture of nice big office buildings and retail, wild and pretty undeveloped areas, and really nice houses. Some of us went and slayed the 5/5 dragon at the far end of the lake, too. And there are one or two land based ones you can easily get out to get. Some fish jumping. Lots of HUGE herons. Strange ducks I've only ever seen in The Woodlands that look like they came from the move Coraline. Was cool to venture up here and do these.
  25. Lake Woodlands Kayak Series

    It was newly re-done in June of this year, so you can do it again.
