Re: Pocket Query
- Howdy Dani!
I can personally attest that having a pro sitting next to you while learning to navigate in GSAK is the only way to go. It only took Wayne two sessions of intensive training to get me to learn enough to get me in trouble. BTW Wayne, I downloaded my very first pocket query to my Garmin today - all by myself - and I didn't even call for help!!!!
Which only goes to prove that if a dinosaur like me can do it, so can you!!!!!
Good luck and don't give up!
- Oh my...
I've felt with all things going on, I didn't have time to sit down and
figure out that GSAK thing.
Inspired by these posts I finally did it and in no time at all, Oh my
Gosh! Should have done it earlier!
The GSAK site has easy instructions.
- Thanks Wayne! I don't have a laptop though but maybe I can get my hands on one before the next event. I still have not attended an event but I really want to and hopefully will soon! I would love to put faces with the names. Until then I will continue to play with GSAK so I know the basics.Daniwhit228

Date: Wednesday, September 30, 2009, 7:23 PMHi Dani and welcome! I think most folks probably use Geocaching Swiss Army Knife (GSAK) to manipulate their pocket queries. You can download GSAK at http://www.gsak. net/We teach classes in GSAK usage a couple times a year in the central Texas area. Our next class is tentatively scheduled for Oct 24 in San Antonio, but the exact details have not been locked down as of yet. We are also talking about having a class at Duke's Barbecue in Georgetown, but that is still in the talking stage at this point. Julie is right about if you bring a laptop with GSAK to an event, I'll be happy to sit down with you and get you started with it.Have a great evening,Wayne LindAKA The Outlaw.-----Original Message-----

Subject: [CentralTexasGeocac hers] Pocket QueryAs you all know I am still learning which means I have questions. But I just don't seem to run into many geocachers out and about so I will send my question out to the group.
Do you use the Pocket Query? If so, do you prefer one program over another? I am so tired of writing all the info down (hints, etc).
