Just to bring everyone up to date on the caches, here is the current status
The event =1
New Permanent = 4
New Temporary = 7
Placed 11/22/10 = 6
Placed 10/31/10 = 5
Placed 10/10/10 =3
Placed 02/14/03 - 1
=====================
Total = 27 caches to hunt

You need to recheck the coordinates on my caches

Ah Mr. Yogi57, I have already updated the coords since your recent activity along with other updates reported to me.
Thanks for the heads. Good Dog and I are in contact.

BTW are you getting along well?

Later tonight, I will post a zip file with GPX of all the area caches including the temporary caches. there are 27 of them including the event.

Some individual cachers may have dome but there are 4 new ones.

I will also have a limited number of printed sheets and between armygreenX and myself we should be able to load GPS units. I know I can load Delmore and armygreenX advises me that Garmin and Magellin are easy also.

OK here is the ZIP file containing the GPX file.

Open the zip file and extract the GPX. Load the GPX just like you would any other GPX file.

Post if you have problems

Thanks,
