E.T. Highway Lessons Learned
Have you ever wanted to do a major power trail such as the E.T. Highway in Nevada, USA? I’ve done it, and it was a lot of fun – but there also some planning factors that you MUST consider if you want to do it safely. This presentation, created by me as well as Margaret and Ken Klock, shows you the ups, downs, and safety considerations that should be part of your power trail preparations. We have given this presentation at two events so far, and we plan on making a voice recording in the future – stay tuned! Click on the link below to see a pdf of our presentation.
The tabs below contain more information on the courses that I will be creating in the fullness of time. Main main focus is on the Beginner GSAK course, but I will create videos for the others along the way.
Design Note: I am now uploading all videos on YouTube, and have deleted the courses on this website.
By switching everything over to YouTube, the content will continue to be free (unless YouTube starts changing their business model) while simplifying this website.
The biggest advantage of going down the course format was walking you through the list of courses in a specific order, while providing some flexibility on the modules that you would select. Hopefully, my new simple list format will achieve the same result. This page will change (hopefully soon) with a list of all the courses in sequential order. Until the website page re-construct is complete, please go to my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLxAS869oNvlRGUJ4upm-zw/
The second course is aimed at intermediate users of GSAK – if you don’t know what that is, then please check out the beginner tab and line yourself up for success!
The course will build on the beginner class and show you a wider range of things that you can do with GSAK. Lessons will include advanced filtering, using macros, database management, and so much more. This course will be perfect for those who are familiar with GSAK, but always feel that there is something more that can be done with it.
The third course, aimed at advanced users of GSAK, will build on the first two classes and show you just how powerful GSAK can actually be. Lessons will include even more advanced filtering, cross-posting between geocaching.com and GSAK, a broader range of macros, and advanced levels of database management. This course will be perfect for those who can easily get standard tasks achieved in GSAK, but want to become power users of GSAK.
Puzzle caches, mystery caches, brain-busting caches – whatever you call them, I love trying to solve them! In the future, I will be looking at creating courses that will show you how to solve them. Easy caches where the answers can be done by children, caches that require you to know computer code, algorithmic puzzles, and even more will be covered. Stay tuned!
This course will be focused on some of those frustrating issues that can come about when geocaching. Have you ever cached as a group only to find that a basic member can’t log the Premium caches that you have found? Have you ever wondered what you should have in a cache repair kit? What about the tools that you should carry with you for caching in various kinds of environments? These videos will help you solve most geocaching issues that you will face.
