Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Geoaching March 8th Update

This week showed a few changes to Geocaching.  A great quote in the forums from OpinioNate

After several feature-heavy releases it was time to circle back and fix some bugs. With the help of geocachers providing feedback on User Voice we identified some high-visibility issues and did a little house cleaning. This also gave us time to monitor site performance and plan for future feature enhancements.

The Beta Maps introduced before the winter holidays continue to perform well under load. Soon we'll begin more closely integrating them into the rest of the site, as well as add a few more tools to make them even more useful. Thank you for all the feedback so far!

You will notice a new video page.  This has some great vidoes about geocaching and how to do different things: How to cache, cache containers, instructional videos etc.

You may not see the benchmark list from the side of the page.  It has been banished.  I am not fond of the change, but it was moved to the bottom right hand side of the pages with all the odd links.

If you are into powerpoint try the new presentation on Geocaching.  It is really cool and I have tried to find a great place to use it with no luck yet.  Perhaps I need to sign up as an instructor at a community class,  just to use it once.  To download you have to agree to the copyright terms.  But check it out if you have powerpoint.

There is a lifting of the number of pocket queries to 1000.  You can run more per week, but you can create a number of them for trips, and vacations that you wish to repeat in the future.

Then a lot of bug fixes.
