Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] "Whirling" Compass
- Um. Move away until it stops whirling. Get as good an angle as you can get. Vector in and....Go-Go-Cacher Senses!And keep the hot line number programmed into your Cell.There are times that a GPS only gets you close -- and the rest is up to human sussing.And there are times the GPS is spot on certain -- 30 feet from the cache.I know. NOT the magic handshake you wanted to hear. But if you do have an effective find the cache dance, I'd love to film it!On Wed, 14 Mar 2007 17:15:36 -0500 "Peter M.

(And in many cases, not even that will help.) But if someone has some suggestions, I'd like to hear them.

amick and I have been running into the problem of
caches with tall buildings or rock walls where our GPS
just won't settle down. We don't know if we're near
the caches or not. We can just stand still and the
number of feet will change from 75 to zero and back up
again in three different places. Any suggestions about
how to hone in on a cache when there are tall barriers
