  1. Such a shame. We have become somewhat disenchanted with the game and have only found 5 or 6 in the last 6 months and are slowly archiving our own caches. No pleasure in hiding them any more as people just don't play by the guidelines and the quality of hides are disappointing. Probably do a bit when we go down to Cornwall as can normally expect a few good hides. Plus all the power trails are too much for our old joints, we used to enjoy the 2 or 3 mile circular walks but they seem to be a distant memory. With Groundspeak's somewhat mercenery attitude we will probably let our Prem Membership drop as well.
  2. FREE!!! Festival type 2 berth dome tent. Collection from Worthing, West Sussex. Will need two days notice to collect it from where it is stored
  3. Remember that series well, one of the first cache series we completed. Nice pleasant walk around Camborne. Some of the Oldest taht we have found: GCA2D5 Incorporating Nature GCG1WE Stormy Weather (Virtual) GCG6KG Nice and Awesome Cache GCGT3X A fine View GCGV77 Twixt Grass and Guns (temp disabled) All still going and placed in 2003 My To Find GSAK database lists 46 caches that were placed in Cornwall before Dec 31st 2004
  4. Caches by diggersdad are good as they are always different and normally well constructed.
  5. If you have a smart phone why not just simply download a FREE sat nav app for that and get the GPS with TT maps for caching and hiking. NavFree is a pretty good one with offline mapping as well.
  6. In addition to the above I seem to remember that he was one of the six flag holders at Iwo Jima in the photo that was well publicised.
  7. I would say that the minimum you would want is something that does paperless caching: ETrex 20 Dakota 20 Both offer the ability to add maps and also paperless caching, one is a touch screen while the other uses a simple 'joystick' for operating purposes. Both of these are above entry level but have some degree of expandability, many more choices out there but very dependent on your finances.
  8. Try and get to the Picnic on The Head event on 18th August, great bunch always attend and a lot of fun is always had, even if it is organised by an outsider . The weather has been ordered as per previous years. Picnic on The Head Event
  9. There is no need to download any separate icons, must admit that when I last re-loaded the laptop and set GSAK and MM back up I had to import an old saved overlay to get them working properly. If you want I could send you an old overlay of mine to get it kick started.
  10. Facebook has many degrees of security, your posts can be seen only by you, by your friends, friends of your friends or anybody. You can also send PM's as well as carry out a video call.
  11. The ability to discuss anything without being slapped down by the, you can discuss other listing sites and that dreaded CHARITY word without any fear of a moderator coming along with their big black marker pen and deleting certain words or phrases.
  12. Just found out from my son that some form of geocaches feature in the latest Tomb Raider game on the PS3
  13. Well that didn't last as long as I thought. Somebody else must have an interest in that place, I know why mine is DING and over to Retallick Ramblers
  14. Thanks for the DING. Staying on a similar theme: Which British Prison was built in the early 1800's to hold prisoners from the Napoleonic Wars?
  15. Having been in the penal system for many years I have collected many books on the subject so decided to have a quick read and find the answer. 1922 at Gloucester Prison, Herbert Armstrong!
  16. some of my caches are in a private wood and the owner has closed them until the ground drys a little, just hope that my local reviewer is nice to me
