    Default New Look on Geocaching.com

    Has anyone noticed the new look on the GC front page? It also has new features on the cache page such as an option to open google maps to get directions to the cache location.

    One thing that happened to me is the my pocket queries along a route would not work using my usual Internet Explorer brower. To get a query along a route to work, I had to use Firefox.

    Something new to get used to using.

    I noticed that yesterday, I tossed my cookies and dumped my cache and did a windows update, and when I logged back on I was greeted with quite a suprise!

    It is very nice looking, I haven't had any problems with it yet.

    Son has sworn by it for a while. Have to say - things worked slick - no error messages.

    Was on the site last evening and I'm guessing they made the switch at 6:00 pm. I was looking at the maps and just after 6:00 pm I thought I broke something, as the maps were different. I like the site so far.

    Yeah there are now topo maps as well as directions from you house to a cache. One I just looked at was 3+ hours away. Assured my hubby we were not going for the FTF! LOL

    gas is under $4 a gallon in some places! get out there and cache away! (*note* if i was saying this, there would be an extreme undertone of sarcasm involved...)
