  1. Some here from our early days of caching if they are a help http://s61.photobucket.com/albums/h42/sarah-slaughter/Pics%20for%20K9/ they are from our early days of caching. I know one has not got a cache in it....he was on his way to it (barely 3 years old :))

    I have a blog too if that is a help? http://the-slaughter-family.blogspot.co.uk/ (and I now realise how little we have cached this year :( ..... summer hols soon and the Lake District beckons :)


    p.s. let us know when the blog post is live :)

  2. Thanks every one, lots to look at now....like the sound of the one where breakfast is included :)


    Slaughter means someone who lives in a muddy place :)


    SP I had a long chat with you re the events we could make this year at the Mega Wales event :) So sadly we cannot make them all....perhaps one day (note to self I need to win the lottery and get a motorhome lol)

  3. Hello fellow cachers.

    Planning a road trip to get to the Mega this year. Looking to stop part way enroute for an overnight stay. Looking at around Birmingham area as we will be approaching on the motorway from the south. Any recommendations, or must avoids would be helpful. We are a family of 4, limited budget, need secure parking, B&B with facilities close by for a cooked meal - doubt they will let us get the burner etc out lol. Think that is it. Thanks in advance.

  4. My understanding of it is that you had to log it from the event with one of the official Groundspeak iphone or android apps.


    As I'm too tight to pay out for one of 'em (and the android app didn't exist then anyway), I didn't get it either lol!


    me neither, cannot afford one. Shame as it makes this bit of fun (as I see it) for the elite only. Was really chuffed to get my one yesterday and it is proudly on my blog :)

  5. So long as it wasnt in school holidays and we had enough notice to plan our hols around it, we would definately be there.


    Did I get that right? You mean you DON'T want it in the school holidays?


    I think it would be difficult to persuade lots of people to go to Ireland if the kids are at school


    Whilst I do appreciate that many people who cache are retired etc. , there are a large number of us who have kids. I'd say 50/50. 'Caching is certainly a family sport (as we find when we go to the many events that we do).

    I agree families also make the numbers up more than single cachers. One family username can have several people that all count towards the official number.


    Yes we have 4 to count with our username, and if an event with travel is outside of the hols, we would not be able to get there...sorry
