Caching Gear/ Tech Talk / Re: Battery life in Garmin GPS

Sorry I haven't replied sooner, Bear 'n Ragged, not been able to access laptop for a few days. I have passed your suggestion over to the technical expert [ husband!]. He is researching getting re-chargeable batteries ATM. As we are going to the Essex Mega in July/August we wanted to be sure to have enough 'battery power'  Thanks for your suggestion Jenny.

Thanks very much for your replies - all very helpful. I shall pass the technical suggestions onto my husband, who is the technical half of the partnership.

We were very concerned as a friend [ who has a different type of GPS] claimed that her batteries lasted ' months'!

I'm certainly finding the Garmin fun to use, so far it has helped us to get back onto our route when we have gone wrong, and we get a satellite signal when in woodland which has been a problem when my husband was only using his phone!

Thank you for my birthday good wishes, sadly the years seem to pass more quickly - especially now we have found this wonderful hobby of Geocaching, and such a friendly and helpful group of fellow cachers. Jenny :)

How long would you expect the batteries to last in the Garmin GPS Oregon 600] please?

I have just been given one for my birthday, and today after a full days walking [ about 6 hours, and 3 hours yesterday] I got a low battery warning, which seemed very quick to run down - or am I expecting too much from the X2 AA batteries? Thanks for any help Jenny.

The walks look amazing, but when I read the T&C's - you can't take dogs so that will stop us going. Shame, but wouldn't feel right walking in that amazing countryside without Tilly. Thanks for posting the link Gackt. Jenny  :(

A BIG THANK YOU to all who replied - we now receive notification of new caches before the list comes out! We were monitoring a new one at Rugby last evening and were amazed at how quickly the FTF enthusiasts got there. Thanks for your help Jenny [Mrs Hogshunters]

Thanks Gackt - have handed the computer over to Mr hogshunters [George], and let him follow the instructions so we'll see what happens!

Thanks Gackt - yes that's the listing I meant - didn't know there was any other type! [ Have to confess I am a computer idiot though :-[]

The latest example is - we received the list from Geocaching of new caches  [ there is a new scouts series in Rugby] the first person to look was on 24th, yet we didn't get the email until today [27th]! This is to a gmail account. Just couldn't understand it.

Thanks for the replies. We don't particularly chase FTF's, but we were lucky enough to get one at Xmas time, purely by chance.
Its just that we had noticed that when we are notified of new caches in our area people have generally already found them and often by a few days before we have had any notification [ I check my emails several times a day for other reasons not caching  :D]. Was just wondering .............
Thanks Jenny

Just a quick query [ now I have been shown how to get round the forum  :-[]
We get notifications of new caches, but when we look at them they have usually been found [ FTF], so obviously these cachers are notified sooner than us - can anyone throw any light onto why this is please? Thank you Jenny [ Mrs Hogshunters]

Hello / Re: Welcome hogsunters

Hi to you all. Hogshunters is a new team to geocaching, and consists of three team members - myself [ Jenny], my husband [George] and last but not least geodog Tilly [ she has her very own geocoin disc on her collar!]
We are really enjoying this new venture which is enhancing our walking hobby, though Tilly does get a bit bored if we spend too much time looking for a cache, preferring to be 'on the move'.
As 'newbies' to the hobby there are things we still don't understand so hope you don't mind us asking questions on the forum. Jenny, George and Tilly  :)
