I've been waiting for that single, lonely marker to show up in that corner of the state.

Awesome work Brian! I added mine too..... but I used the offset method. I didn't want anyone to know where the Curly Girls hideout exactly is.

I originally put in our address and it placed you just outside our bay window. Figured Mrs. Northwoods prefers to watch birds out the window rather than geocachers so I moved it down to the closest intersection.

Like that will really help though... Several visiting cachers have asked in town where that Island geocacher lives and the the locals have helped them find me... Can't hide in a small community.

I just put the town name. Small enough that you should be able to find me

Maybe I should update mine and move it to one of my caches! Someone used to live in that cave 100 years ago. Smile

How close to the entered coords will it place the marker? It shows me over 1/2 mile from where the coords really are.

Wayne,
Try entering your coords in decimal format. 42.72237 -89.45267

I think that it is trying to place me at the nearest road/address to the coords.

42.72237 -89.45267 does not change it. It is the address to a house that is just to the north. When I start to slowly adjust the north coord to be a little farther south, it then jumps to Reubens Cave Drive, which is also too far east.

Strange that I see the JKK&KIDS has his in the middle of the lake. LOL!!
