Downtime, phones, and thoughts
Just a reminder for everyone that geocaching.com will be going down tomorrow for a few hours. Actually four to six hours. It is supposed to happen 10 am Mountain time (GMT -6) and up to 4 pm. So it looks like all reviewing during breaks, and surfing maps will be halted. Hopefully you will be able to get in what you need.
Take care of everything now. For those of you in timezones that may be in Europe. It will be down during the evening, so I would jump on things now so you don't have any problems. I am guessing that also means that all apps will also be down. So run your GPX files now and get them loaded into your phones and GPS units so you will not have any issues in the field.
For those who follow the Latitude 47 threads and use cell phones, you are aware that updates to the android and iphone apps are coming soon. Having seen one of them, it is really nice. It was posted that they will be ready for release soon. So stay tuned.
Locally I wish to say farewell to Goblincamper2004. They have been a staple in our area for some time. They moved to the southern part of the state. Caching here will never be the same. Their smiles and their excitement for the game of geocaching was always apparent. They were at all the events and threw a large number. They loved the chance to get together.
It was a chance for a FTF nearly three years ago where I headed to a cache a few blocks from my work when I first met them. Because of the speed at which many responded she had waited to greet the ftf people. Since that time I have seen them often at many different events.
Farewell and I wish you luck in the south.
