  1. Our dogs are the reason we started Geocaching in the first place. MrsD bought an Etrex to record how long our dog walks were. They used to accompany us on all our outings and have done many long walks: Chiltern Hundred, LOTC's Mega Series, Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scarfel Pike etc etc


    Nowadays, Poppy (the 13½ yo Black Lab) is too slow and stubborn so hardly ever comes with us anymore

    Whisper, (12yo Yellow Lab) only comes with us on local stuff where it's no big loss if we have to abandon a walk due to cows.

    She's great company/cover for nighttime FTF trips though B)


    I don't think they mind too much because they'd rather run around the woods or chase a tennis ball anyway :)



  2. The cache is still going strong, has been looked after by visiting cachers when necessary, has a fist full of favourite points and gets great reviews from all who find it. If you're up that way, go and see for yourselves what care in the community can do.

    The cache is GC6308 - 2002 A Space Odyssey


    Well it took me 30 seconds to track down the owner of that cache! B)


    In the past I've tried to contact owners who have given up caching but I don't usually have that much luck



  3. This si what im getting at.


    If you take your own 'whatever' its normally free. Bike, food, drink,sports equipment. Why not caching?


    If you want to take a piece of tupperware to hide in the woods for another member of your family to find using a GPS, I'm pretty sure you could.


    You are asking why you should pay to take part in an orgainsed and staffed activity. It surprises me why you think you shouldn't have to pay! :rolleyes:




  4. You can take your own bikes there and there's no charge for using them on site, and is a recommended alternative to hiring their bikes.


    You can also take your own food as well! :D


    When going to the [far cheaper and much more exciting] European parks we hire bikes because it's a lot less hassle than taking our own. B)




  5. If you had never done anything with a GPS before but liked the idea of it would you not actually consider paying that?

    I'm sure people pay more than £15.50 to cover 4 people on a 2 hour activity on other things so to me it sounds like a good deal.



    I don't have a problem with it, nor would I do it!


    They also charge for canoing, climbing, rowing, horse riding and all sorts of things you can do for free in the outside world if you've got your own equipment! ;)





  6. We've had logs saying . or :)

    Th other day we got one saying a bit odd but the cache did actually return and post a proper log


    The strangest ones we've received were on a series of five cache and they just said 11+1 or 11+2 etc. No idea why.


    All our caches are pmo as well which stops a lot of the crud but obviously not all of it :huh:





    Edited for typo

  7. Personally, I think the FTF thing shouldn't be on there because it relies on individual cachers logging their finds in a particular way.

    According to that site, we have one FTF and I certainly don't care enough to go back and edit several hundred logs :huh: Even if ours are correct there is no guarantee anyone else's are




  8. Good attempt Lilian, but only just in the top ten!


    I think I'm #1, unless anyone knows differently! Delta - is there a way of extracting this info?




    Yeah using project-gc Link in original post

    Unfortunately the event types are split into the separate sub-types

    Counting just 'normal' events, stevo185 is #1, mollyjak are #14
