Geocaching Forum in 2016

Almost tripped over a few tumbleweeds getting in here.


Budgese is a new Mod here but we need some ideas to breathe some life into this forum.

How can we make this place work?

Heya!! I came in here tonight to post a happy Christmas message, and see how we could get the forum rolling again!

Great minds?!

I will start my new thread idea right away!

Hi how does this work. A few years ago I accidentally found one near a wood outside Limerick. Other than checking this forum out at the time I didn't do much more.

I think I'd like to give it a go.

Anything much happening around Limerick city or the mid west region.

Apologies if this isn't the right thread to be asking.

Happy Christmas

Hello!

Geocaching is a community activity, although usually pursued as individuals. Have a look at geocaching.com and set up an account. It's the type of activity that is what you make it to be - I myself prefer to set out alone with my phone with GPS and app, or with another friend who is into the sport. Some prefer to do group events. Any specific questions please don't hesitate to ask and we'll answer as best we can!

We could have a New Year meet up at my place.

It would be nice to see life breathed into this place. There isn't a whole lot of cachers on boards it seems. Maybe I need to make a pack of laminated QR codes with links to this forum to shove into geocaches

That's a good idea, that is. Unfortunately geocaching is probably for a lot of people a seasonal activity too!

My own cache went missing last year, I replaced it last August, but in a very changeable landscape, I was afraid it was gone again. It was found twice in the last week! One person was from Seattle! I'm delighted to know it's there and safe. I haven't been down to see it much lately. It wintered well obviously!

I want to place a new cache, does anyone know where I can get those small magnetic containers from? I'm on a budget!

A lot of them are just normal small containers with some small magnets from eBay (China) stuck to them.

Hi!

I know very little about geocaching but oddly enough I dreamt last night where it was suggested to me as a fun thing to do.

How mad is that!

That's a pretty cool dream

It is a fun thing to do! Doesn't require any commitment either, which is fun. You just do it when you feel like it. Any questions fire away!

I must get back into it. It's actually a good thing to do along with Photography.


Maybe now that Summer is coming there things will start to move here.
