    Default GSAK help for newbies or you

    Thought this would be a good way to introduce someone to the benefits of GSAk and all it has to offer.

    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Never heard of it but it looks neat. Now I'll have to take some time with it. Thanks for posting this.

    Never heard of GASK? Sheesh! How can you go caching without it! It's really a great tool. Worth the price. Get it.

    that's a really good quick start... but I'm still having trouble exporting files to MS Streets & Trips and to Nat. Geo. TOPO!.... GSAK won't create a file that is recognized by those programs, it comes close, but the extensions are like a letter off *.TRP or somethin goofy like that when it needs be somethin like *.TOP
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    I'm not familiar with either program, but it sounds like you're looking for a different file than the waypoint files exported by GSAK. It exports a .TXT file for MS S&T, and a .TPG file for Nat Geo Topo. GSAK will place the file at your preferred location (desktop or documents), and then you import to your program.

    Not sure what the problem is...

    the file that is created by GSAK isn't recognized by either of my programs...
