How many of you use the geolocation based games INGRESS, MUNZEE, or GEOCACHING to inspire and motivate you while out hiking?

I have recently started playing INGRESS resulting in me hiking up parts of Mission Peak in Fremont, CA 3 different times now. I find the feeling of success to be a great motivator. I find that the support I get from other players in the area encourages me to do more!

I'd love to ...

Hiking/Scrambling Grade Conversion Chart

Hi all,
I'm looking for a hiking and scrambling grade conversion chart (if one exists) or help in creating one. There are plenty of examples online and in guidebooks of climbing grade conversions, but none of these go below the level of technical rock climbing to include scrambling and off-trail hiking.

East Coast Vs. West Coast Hiking

I live in Utah. The majority of my experience hiking on and off trails comes from hiking peaks on Forest Service and BLM in the Mountain West region.
