    Default Dragonfly picture taken with my Oregon

    One more picture taken with the Oregon 550T. I am still amazed that it takes such good pictures. All it needs is a zoom. LOL

    That wasn't taken with that fancy compass thingy.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Yes, yes it was. LOL All my Geocaching pictures are taken with that now. I don't even take my digital camera caching with me anymore and my cell phone doesn't have a camera.

    I could not live without my 10X optical zoom when taking pictures while caching. Once I revisited a cache with Lee and took her down the side of a river I found it on, and we could find nothing and her GPS was pointing out in the water (I had not realized, but the cache owner had relocated the cache). She looked across and said there was something in the crotch of the tree. Sure enough, I zoomed in and took a pic and you could clearly see the tupperware on the LCD screen!



    However, after screwing up on so many offset, multi and puzzle caches, I always take pictures of plaques I need information from or coordinates written in the lids of stages and the like. Having the camera on the GPS could be great for that.

    Regardless, I think I'd almost cache without a GPSr before I'd cache without a digital camera!

    How are you gonna take a picture of you with GPS in your hand for Earth and Virtual caches as a proof?

    Default Hmmmm?

    Take two pictures. One of the Earth or Virtual and one of you standing in front of the cache. Would that pass muster with Northwoods Teacher and Northwoods Explorer? Or bring a mirror. Have your caching partner hold the mirror so it points at the cache. Stand with your back to the cache, facing the mirror and take the picture of the mirror. You'll be holding the GPS and the cache will be behind you. Of course this means you need to cache with a mirror holding buddy to make it work.

    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Nothing is impossible. I once took a picture of myself with a disposable camera at a virtual where it was required to get me and the object behind me in the picture. In order to do so, the camera had to be about 15 feet away.

    It actually made the cache more than it was, which is a plus for any cache. It took me 30-45 minutes but I did it! Nothing is impossible, especially if you carry duck tape, rope and scrap wood with you!

    These types of things would be fun at an event, to complete a task only using materials supplied!

    Very cool pic . . . and I'm yet again impressed with the Oregon . . . impressive close up pic.
