GPS BASICS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Marking a waypoint
What is a waypoint? – Waypoints are sets of coordinates that identify a point in physical space. Coordinates used can vary depending on the application. For terrestrial navigation these coordinates can include longitude and latitude.

Your car’s position – One of THE most important waypoints that you can utilize with a GPSr unit is not where you are going. In fact it is the point you most want to find after you find your geocaches. It is where your car is. Depending on the situation you are in when out in the wild there are many situations where a geocacher can lose their way and uncertainty can set in by not knowing where your car is. Always mark your car.
Trailhead – A trailhead marks the beginning and/or end of a trail. It is key in geocaching to be able to designate to a geocacher trailheads so easier parking and entrance into a trail system can be determined. It is also a key factor again when getting back to your automobile after geocaching.
POI – A point of interest, or POI, is a specific point location that someone may find useful or interesting. This could be anything from restaurants, rest areas, geographical interests, and more. Geocaches in regards to GPS units can be specified as only geocaches or as point of interests. They can show up graphically different depending on how they are designated.

Since POI are stored differently on a GPSr you can actually store more potential geocaches then as designated geocaches.

Tracking – Electronic Breadcrumbs

Tracks vs Routes – Routes and tracks are sets of GPS information designed to help you in your navigation. There are a few key differences to keep in mind when using routes and tracks.

Routes are pre-defined paths created from a group of location points entered into the GPS receiver in the sequence you desire to navigate them.
Location points can be user generated waypoints or points of interest that have been loaded from a map or from a Garmin program
Routes are created on the computer and/or on the device

Tracks act like breadcrumb trails, allowing you to see where you or another individual traveled in the past. This allows you to navigate a path previously taken.
Tracks contain track points, not waypoints or points of interest
There are two different types of tracks:
Active Track Log:
Contains track points for your current activity
Can be cleared at the start of a new activity
Can be set to wrap around (overwrite older track points as device runs out of memory)
Can be saved as a “Saved Track”
Saved Tracks
Created typically from the active track log
Can have a limit to the maximum amount of track points based on the device (for example: 250, 500, 10,000 track points maximum)
Creation can result in points being consolidated (on device) or truncated (from computer to device) depending on the source, to meet above device track point limitations
Creation can result in data removal based on the device (for example: date, time, speed and accessory data)
GPS Waypoint Projections
First thing to know about projecting a waypoint is that we need three pieces of data:
Origin Coordinates
Bearing
Distance

Find the Project Waypoint function on your GPSr unit. It will vary with each model. Put in the needed information and it will create a new waypoint to follow to.

Question For Episode 120:
Prize 1 – 120: Cache Advance – Space City Geocoinfest Geocoin

Viewer suggestions:
Danno TeamPugatch
A class on environmental science taught by local rangers. We need to understand the impact geocaching has on plants, animals, and water whether it’s from trash, bushwhacking, or the materials we use to make caches and they decompose over time. That way we can hide caches that don’t negatively impact an area. And avoid hurting an area when we go looking for them. 

Austin Auclair (PatientRock)
A class on hiking first aid. I try to refresh my memory on best practices for injuries big and small every once in a while.

Collin French
Two classes I can think of:
1. Nanos are bad.
2. The importance of writing a good caching log.

Art Pennington
How to properly place a cache

Elizabeth N Bill
Logging etiquette!!!!

Danielle Kratz
Using your GPS – waypoint projections

Eric Lofgren
The one I would like to take is advanced GSAK. I have the basic down and can manipulate data well but know nothing of macro writing.

Anthony Stealth
Basic caching etiquette:
1. The importance of replacing a cache like you found it.
2. Logging etiquette.
3. Handling and logging Trackables/Geocoins found in caches.

How to teach them
Visually – Visual Examples
With handouts – Printed out examples
Taking them on geocaching hunts (staged or real)
Re-viewable media – Videos

Number One Rule:
Tell Them What You Are About To Teach
Teach Them
Tell Them What You Just Taught

Spread the word about your classes.
Have student’s endorse your class written and verbally
Advertise on the Interwebs
Sponsor your classes on podcasts

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 118

http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/my-money/2015/06/10/7-free-and-cheap-ways-to-enjoy-a-staycation

Note from Debaere-
Little known fact: ‘Staycation’ is a term invented by Canadian comedian Brett Butt, and made famous on the sitcom Corner Gas, set in a small town in Saskatchewan

My Money – 7 Free and Cheap Ways to Enjoy a Staycation
Here are seven free and low-cost ways to enjoy a staycation this summer.
1. Self-guided tours
You’ll need to be a little creative with this one, but if you have an hour or two to spare for mapping out an itinerary, put together a self-guided tour map of local attractions and sights. Whether you plan to do this on foot, by bike or by car, you can hop from one landmark or site to another within a few hours to explore the area. Use Google Maps or another mapping tool to pinpoint locales and print out a map for the road.
Suggestions with a geocaching twist:
GeoTours – Historic for example
Use GSAK macros –
Many like the Difficulty / Terrain challenges
CacheRaid a tour of geocaching adventures
Fantasy Favorites – 20 top favorites in your query

2. Free music events
Check the local newspaper, community calendar and chamber of commerce website for any upcoming live music performances and festivals in the area. Lakeside and waterfront concerts are especially popular during the summer months and can be the perfect excuse to escape from the house on the weekend. Just plot your calendar with a few acts making their way to your town or city this season.
Suggestions with a geocaching twist:
Many popular event areas may have geocaches nearby

3. Museum tours
Many museums in the area offer complimentary tours and events for local residents throughout the year. If you’re in the mood for a fun educational experience, take a tour of the children’s museum or natural history museum in the area. Spending a few hours at these cultural attractions can be a great way to learn something new and walk away with a fresh perspective.
Suggestions with a geocaching twist:
Many geocaches or geocache series nearby

4. National park visit
Spend an entire day at a national park to explore some natural sites, take a tour with a park ranger, snap some pictures of wildlife and just relax outdoors. You will only have to pay a nominal fee to enter and park in the park, and you may even be able to take advantage of free admission days on select days of the week or holidays.
Suggestions with a geocaching twist:
Goes without saying. You may not have many geocaches in the national park but there are many times tons nearby.

5. Movie marathon
If you’re looking for a low-cost activity to enjoy with friends and family – or just want to relax and unwind for a weekend solo – put together a list of movies you want to watch back to back. Binge watching a few movies can brighten up your mood or be the perfect activity on a rainy summer’s day.
Suggestions with a geocaching twist:
Find a Drive-In for that outdoors experience – geocaches nearby.

6. Geocaching
Geocaching has become increasingly popular over the years. It’s a fun game for treasure-hunting aficionados where the goal is to find a geocache in a hidden location using a GPS-enabled device. You may be able to find some geocaching groups in your local area to coordinate a group hunt, or sign up on one of several websites like geocaching.com to try it on your own.
Suggestions with a geocaching twist:
Series caches
Caches you haven’t done before
Pick a place and go!
County challenges

7. Local brewery and factory tours
Another fun and educational experience, a tour of a local brewery or factory can give you a chance to sample some new foods and drinks, get to know locals and learn about the business from an insider’s perspective. Check daily deal sites for coupons and deals on admission tickets to save some extra money.
Suggestions with a geocaching twist:
Well yeah

Timed Geocache
Participants attempt to find as many caches as possible within a specified time limit. Caches contain a ticket or envelope to be taken by the players to verify their find. Divide teams up equally, according to ability, or develop a handicap system to allow older and younger teams to compete with highly experienced or athletic participants.
Hide and Seek
Participants provide their own cache containers, purchased or made, and hide them for the officials to find. Players are judged by their creativity in creating and hiding the cache. You can even make a fun activity out of creating and decorating your cache containers from items in nature and craft supplies. Award prizes for style and originality.
Puzzle Caches
Use your imagination to come up with games to keep players guessing and using their creativity. One example is to place items in caches that, when found, require participants to make something with the contents. Another idea might be to have players find envelopes containing trivia questions and coordinates for the next cache. Players receive points for questions answered correctly.
Other options include Multi-Stage searches, Letterbox Hybrid caches, Earthcaches, and Micro Caches.
