  1. As well as Crazy L200's excellent suggestion, also check out geocachingireland.com's interactive map (you're looking for Counties Louth and Meath on the east coast, north of Dublin) Your cache query from Drogheda is link Have fun. Have fun. Have fun.
  2. As posted on the cache page: I have left Bristol to return to Ireland but expect to be returning, however, it could be irregularly (and will probably depend on Bristol City's big Championship games at home next season.) Although this cache has been completely problem-free in the past, and has never been muggled or wet, if there is a local cacher interested in being a maintenance contact please contact me through my profile. The cache just reached 100 finds since it was placed in September 2003. Thanks in advance, klaus23.
  3. There was about 30 mins of thick heavy snow here in Bristol today - with nice sunshine either side of it!
  4. Although I wasn't caching at the time, I spotted Nicolas Cage at a car boot sale just outside Glastonbury early this week. Apparently he's househunting in Somerset.
  5. I hope to go... aside from seeing all you lot again, it's an icon I'm missing.
  6. Sounds good to me. I'd recommend visiting a cache just to the north, on Brean Down. Also, anyone travelling south on the M5 be wary of roadworks around Portishead, it's 40mph for around 5 miles and there's at least 4 speed cameras.
  7. Interest still here mate. I was talking to the Wombles about it in the thread. We'll pick it up from here.
  8. I presume you've heard that the (other) nickname for the spike, apart from 'Stiffy By The Liffey', is the 'Stiletto in the Ghetto'?
  9. Hang on... it's buried deep in geocachingireland.com. Take a look at Fjon's bookmark list of Dublin caches, this should give you a good starting point. The exact frame you're looking for is this one. Have a good trip.
  10. Have a look at geocacheuk's cache maps and let us know what you think
  11. Cheers mate! Ferry booked, topic closed. Virtual pint on it's way over to rutson's table.
  12. ... which is linked to in the very first post in the thread. Anyway, thanks to Lactodorum for the definitive answer and for everyone's contributions, I'll close the thread off now.
  13. Ah go on go on go on go on.... seen as we all asked nicely
  14. hmm... how well is this researched? M5 Jct.19 mentions the Lodway Service Station, who's fuel costs more than the services at Jct.19. I think they still sell 4-star leaded, if they are open when you stop by. The petrol station on the other side - west of the junction-, in Portishead is one of the cheapest in the area. The website also fails to mention a pub/restaurant near Jct.19 called 'The Priory' in Portbury, a stone's throw from the junction which always gets mentioned in other 'close to motorway' guides. "5 minutes by Google!" sounds more like it. (edit for spelling)
  15. I don't know if this might help but I'm sure that Mike the Hike was in place when I visited there on the 14th November. I am almost certain that that particular item caught my eye (being a keen walker myself) but having reviewed the TBs in the cache I ended up leaving all of them in place as I was not sure how much travelling I was going to be doing. I can also vouch for Johnny Cache, him being my brother and who got on a plane 40 minutes after he stopped by the cache. Bit of a mystery - it seems a lot of trouble to go to. Could it be a bad practical joke?
  16. Interesting and informative response above - but it still brings us back to the original question. If a suitable container was sourced, then made into an replica of the box originally placed, could the cache be re-instated with the original listing (and icon)?
  17. Guess again Klaus mate.... Wednesday 25th, or Friday 27th? The former... sorry
  18. Seems to be hard to beat them for price - £44 return and into Dunkirk, saving a bit of driving. Speed Ferries was £50, but they're further down the coast at Boulogne. Thanks for that, Rutson.
  19. Indeed they have, but you'll notice that the caches are listed as traditional caches now.
  20. Completely off-topic, but I'm heading to Germany for a surprise birthday party (and one or two caches, of course) and need the cheapest possible ferry over. I'm hoping some of you booze-cruise savvy Brits can help me out. I'm going on the night of Friday, 25th January, and am coming back on the morning of either Saturday or Sunday, 28th/29th January. The cheapest Dover-Calais return crossing I can find so far is P&O for £70. Any tips, insider knowledge or handy websites?
  21. Good thinking, Batman. A closer investigation of the gallery at the Brazilian cache revealed this photo: But a look at the Californian cache shows a very distinct logbook and perhaps even some kind of lighting on the cache: The cache in Maryland shows this photo with a child for scale, allowing me to think the cache is about 3x1 ft. Other photos in the gallery reveal that there is black stencil print on the cache, comprised of a monkey and the cache name, PROJECT APE. Similar sized ammo-boxes can be sourced, because I found one last week - here . The question is - would a replica cache of similar size be acceptable?
  22. Of course I want to do something for the environment, but I'm also after one of those elusive CITO icons. Are any events planned in England or Wales this year?
