Are you still dropping travel tags?
We'll be looking for them
Amazon has them less than $200seriously? $250? I may have to try that. Is there a learning curve on using it or is it just plug and play?
I customized several vans in the 70's, the golden age of vanning. Shag carpeting, CB radios the whole nine yards. It was fun. Built some camper vans in the 80's & 90s. My last van was a '99 E150 which I drove for 17 years. I cried when it wore out and wasn't worth fixing anymore.
We've picked up a few pathtags here and there, found logging them a bit confusing. We happened on a rare FTF last month.........Sometimes I still do. I don't geocache nearly as much as I once did. Almost all of my geocaching pals have lost interest. When I visit a new place, I try to find at least one or two. There are a lot locally that I've not tried to find yet.
I may try to go find one this afternoon. It was published yesterday and had not yet been found last night. It was totally dark when I saw it, so I didn't go. Didn't think I needed to be tromping around alone with a flashlight out in the sticks. But it's been ages since I've gotten a FTF.
If you'll PM me a PO Box or address (place of employment, church, business you know, etc., if you're half as paranoid about internet as I am), I'll mail you an extra pathtag. I still have a few left.
Sadly, people hardly ever log tags at the pathtags.com website when they find them any more, so it's hard to know where they've been found. And around here, geocoins get stolen immediately, so I don't release any of those now. Amazingly, I actually got one of mine back that had traveled over 20,000 miles, but that was not recently. Now they all immediately disappear.
Sorry for the temporary thread diversion, OP. Interesting thread topic, btw.
Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 Year, Pappy Van Winkle Special Reserve Lot B 12 Year, Pappy Van Winkle Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year, William Larue Weller 2013 and recently Blanton's Single Barrel (which has suddenly become rare!). I started paying attention too late to acquire any Pappy 20 or 23 Year. The prices and availability for both of those are now just ridiculous!Tell us about your Bourbon Collection!
I have an "old" Yuneek Q500. It has not flown in 2 years. Batteries are $100 each! Just got too expensive. Batteries would last 20 minutes. Every day it sits, it becomes more obsolete as newer, cheaper machines with more capabilities hit the market. As with all things of technology, this is what happens.Amazon has them less than $200
The earlier Hubsan 501ss model's transmitter is square. The better, later transmitter is wider, but a smaller view screen (what the drone's camera sees is on the transmitter view screen). The later model runs about $50 more but the later Transmitter is worth it.
There is a learning curve. Check out the MANY Hubsan H501ss videos on UTube "TheRcSaylors" has a good UTube video for new flyers.
I can afford the expensive ($1,000+) drones but I like this H501ss so much I have 9, new in the box spare 501s models----because----I believe the trend is to do away the view screens on the transmitters and instead to use the person's "Smart Phone". I don't do Smart Phones.
