Kamikaze Koala

Monday, May 14th, 2007

5/13/2007 You found Hilltop (Traditional Cache) There was much complaining (not from me!) as we walked up the long flight of stairs leading to this cache. But the views from the top were well worth it. Mosquitoes swarmed like vampiring helicopters around GZ. They reduced c.j.b. and ...

Greenwich

Sunday, July 9th, 2006

Went to Greenwich today for the National Maritime Museum, but I found other interesting places. There aren't many original London pie shops left. They sell mash (packet mashed potato), pies, jellied eels and liquor (parsley sauce). I had a chicken and mushroom pie, gravy and mash. It wasn't bad, although ...

60CS new software

Tuesday, November 1st, 2005

Went to the GPS shop to get the map on my 60CS Garmin GPS device updated to show more of NSW and less of Brisbane and Adelaide. The nice bloke at the shop also updated my 60CS's firmware (it plays different music when it's time to turn corners now, and ...

Waypoints

Tuesday, June 7th, 2005

I bought the serial cable for my 60CS last night and I managed to upload 499 waypoints. When I look at the map, I can see them. However, they didn't show up as geocaches, only as waypoints. Looks like I still need to do some research here...

GPS problem

Sunday, June 5th, 2005

Looks like the only way I'll be able to upload waypoints onto my 60CS is via a serial cable, because Garmin hasn't made a Mac USB driver. So I'll have to obtain that (overpriced) cable and then I'll be able to connect. Sheesh, Garmin, get your act together. How hard is ...

Saturday, June 4th, 2005

I've been enjoying my new birthday present, a GPSmap 60CS. I haven't been able to upload geocaching waypoints to it yet, because the waypoint software it comes with only works with Windows, but the store I bought it from uploaded the Australia map software for me so at least I ...

A nice round 20

Sunday, January 2nd, 2005

My boyfriend and I decided to geocache while actually hiking through the bush today. The thing about city geoaching is that you can do many in a short amount of time but you don't get much exercise. I�ve now logged 20 cache finds. A nice round number. The Hunt For Pilatus Part ...

Xmas DJ

Sunday, December 26th, 2004

I had my iPod and iBook, plus wireless broadband, at the family Xmas party tonight. I felt like an old time piano player at a party getting requests. When people saw I could get songs in seconds and play them on the stereo via my iTrip, I was inundated with ...
