  1. Hubby comes out caching with me from time to time but it's my hobby rather than his. Sometimes I ask him to accompany me if I don't feel the area is safe, for example. Sometimes, he just fancies the walk! He has done a couple of caches on his own in Kuwait and Canada whilst away on exercise.
  2. It works for me, HH! I have placed a few caches... two in N Yorks (one of which is now maintained by a friend of mine, the other I archived when we moved) and a couple locally in Wiltshire. I am able to maintain the local caches for the two years we are in the area and then I will either archive them or put them up for adoption so that they can live on. When we were in Catterick I was able to spend most of my time out caching and found every cache in the county. Since we moved south, I have been working and haven't been out caching nearly as much. Our next move may be to London where I can clear up all the urban micros! My point being, that whilst I don't hide very many caches, my local search area will change and so will never be exhausted!
  3. OK then... maybe what I should have said was "marry the Army!"
  4. Join the Army! That way, you get to move location every couple of years. By the time you've just about cleared up your local area, you have a whole new area to search!!!
  5. I know one more, in the Harrogate area... So Do I !!!! So do I !!! How are you HH? Not had a call on my mobile from you for some time now!
  6. The owner hasn't logged on to the site for nearly a month!
  7. We'll be in Toronto by Boxing day - I'll bring you all cache loads of the stuff home!!!! Then you must definitely visit Niagara Falls whilst you're there. I saw the Falls frozen in January 2001 and they were awesome!
  8. It's a sign for everyone to do this cache. Shouldn't that be... "Go forth and multi(ply) cache!"
  9. ENFP Almost the antithesis of me then! ESTJ Ah! but I do like GCMWHF Thank you! That would be the "S" and "T" parts! BTW... you haven't found it yet!
  10. ENFP Almost the antithesis of me then! ESTJ
  11. So, 2202, what Myers Briggs types are YOU?!
  12. I was born in Hitchin, Herts and have also lived in Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Germany, N Yorkshire and, currently, Oxfordshire. As hubby is in the army, we'll be moving again next summer but don't know where to yet! At least I never get to exhaust an area of caches!
  13. I was born in Hitchin, N Herts (near to Letchworth - see lordelph's post above) and we used to regularly see black squirrels in our garden. There's even a pub in Letchworth called "The Black Squirrel". Then I moved down to Hampshire where I used to put food out for two white squirrels who regularly visited my garden. I assume they were albino. Then I moved to Germany where we used to have red squirrels in the garden. They are smaller than the greys and have tufts of fur on their ears. So, I've seen grey, black, white AND red squirrels!
  14. Now why did THIS SONG come to mind, I wonder?!!!
  15. It's OK now, Stuey - they've had enough of that game and gone back to chat!
  16. A good point! For one of our caches you have to park in Wales, but the cache is across the River Wye in England After considering the approach roads to the cache we decided that it made most sense to put Monmouthshire (where the parking coords are) after the title, although technically it's hidden in Gloucestershire Mrs B Been there and done that one!
  17. Deego When you say "listed by county", how are they listed? By what criteria? The reason I ask is that when I was doing all the caches in N Yorkshire (like Harrogate Hunter), some were very close to the county boundary and in a few cases were actually ON the county boundary and I had to email the owner of the cache to establish precisely which county they 'fell' into! I also remember one cache as being listed (meaning the county was included in the title of the cache) in N Yorks but was in Cumbria and another being listed in Co Durham but was in N Yorks!
  18. You don't say why you "don't do flying" but if it's because you have a phobia about flying, then it might be an idea to try to overcome that fear so that the whole world becomes open to you I recently overcame my phobia of spiders and, whilst it wasn't particularly debilitating, I feel like a weight has been lifted. I can now deal with those big black hairy ones in the bath without the use of a large tupperware and rubber gloves or coming out in a cold sweat with heart palpitations!
  19. How about giving them directions to these forums. A lot of useful information can be found in here, including which PDA/GPS to buy, how to find cachers in your area, cache meets etc., not to mention the friendly banter!!!
  20. We've just got home from a lovely day walking along the Kennet & Avon Canal from Hungerford to Great Bedwyn, taking in 11 caches, picking up 2 TBs and dropping one off en route, with a yummy picnic at one of the locks. Now we're off to our "local" for a well-earned supper and a few pints of ale.
  21. Many thanks for the advice. We are thinking about taking a picnic lunch if the weather is suitable. Today, we walked a few miles along the Thames Path from Radcot towards Lechlade and no caches to be found as there aren't any!
  22. We are planning to walk along some of the Kennet & Avon Canal tomorrow between Crofton and Hungerford, taking in about 14 caches on the way.
  23. I have just had a 'phone call from Harrogate Hunter (Robin) who is currently stuck in traffic on the M5 en route to Cornwall. He has recently acquired a PDA with Memory Map and Tom Tom. (I don't have either so don't understand the technical aspect of this request!) He has downloaded all the caches he intends to do whilst he is on holiday in Cornwall but his PDA has just crashed on him and he is no longer able to access all the information. He has asked me to post a note in the forums asking if there is anyone in Devon or Cornwall (I think he is heading for Truro) who has Memory Map and/or TomTom, who can help him by letting him download the small program he needs to get his PDA working again. He CAN access his emails and asks that any replies are sent via his profile email (I am also happy to relay any messages direct). I trust that someone will understand his problem from my description and is able to help!!! Many thanks Leoness (Jackie)
  24. I have a TB Dogalogue in honour of our canine caching companions.
  25. Can I shamelessly suggest one of my caches Here near junction 15 of the M4!!!
