    I'd have to agree to that.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Exclamation Premiun membership

    Even if you just go geocaching 2 days a month - $1.25 per trip - the premium membership is worth it.

    The Team Tahoe averages around 16.5 miles per gallon. An average one day trip is around 150 miles. That's $24.00 (@2.65 a gallon ), and with a snack along the way it's $30.00.

    You also get:

    All of this which I think in the long run makes for a more organized day and thus, saves me gas in the truck. Viola! It's paid for itself in just one day.

    To have your pocket queries saved and run once a week, and be able to have caches along a route is worth it.

    I sound pretty cheap at this point I guess....lol. For now, I'll consider it but the thread should probably go back to its regularly scheduled topic.

    What macros do you use?

    I know Brdad is a big macro user too.

    How can macros help you?

    You were on topic, just a side note? This is all good.

    Well I use the Find Stats macro to update my profile page.
    The Challenge gsk. to check out how I am doing on all my challenge caches.
    my Google Earth gsk macro to check out my finds on Google Earth.

    I have 53 macros loaded in GSAK, some are from the GSAK forums and some I have created.

    Some of mine are fully functional macros, some are works in progress. Some are just snippets that do *stupid* little stuff like calculate how many miles it would take as the crow flies to visit every Maine cache in the order they were published (A little over 200,000 miles IIRC).

    But there are macros which are quite handy, like my Copy_to_clip macro which I use often to post cache links in chat and here in the forums in a nice format like EaglEyeStash (GCGGXG) by brdad (3/3).

    Other handy macros help you deal with archived caches in your database, help create bookmark lists, or even evaluate puzzle caches.

    That one sounds handy. But you know, it's really satisfying taking a Sharpie and placing a checkmark on the back of the Delorme.....

    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    Before Brdad got REALLY computer savvy, I remember seeing his copy of the DeLorme Gazetteer. He painted small white-out rectangles, then wrote in the GC numbers of each cache on the page. Very organized, and he pulled it off on paper, not the computer!
