  1. Great idea, but please let's try to make it more interesting than our American friends podcasts.

    I listened to a few and got bored of listening to them telling me they were crossing roads and

    lifting stones etc.

    OK i know it's hard to come up with ideas but I'm sure we have a few cachers with more exciting experiences than that! :huh:


    Being a media man Alistair i'm sure you know a few tricks to keep the interest level up. :lol:

  2. Yep, I've logged a couple and have even got a couple, one in the Canaries.

    I can't say they light my fire much and i only log 'em if there is little caching activity around.

    My own have only been logged a couple of times so i don't think many others

    are interested either. :lol:

  3. My Alpha 156 got bashed twice in an hour in a car park in Lichfield whilst doing the Rabbits cache last year. A dented front wing and an opposite rear wing resulted.

    Two days later whilst caching in Leicester a 4x4 reversed into me apparently not knowing i was there whilst i watched from a cache.


    That's all four corners with a dent now. :lol:


    I suppose i'm just unlucky.!

  4. I agree with all that's been said so far. We like to encourage and maybe enjoy the baffled looks when people ask what our hobby (can i call it that now) is, but maybe feel uncomfortable with the thought of it becoming a mass activity.

    When i first started there were only a couple of us in the area i live, very few caches and i hardly ever met a fellow cacher. Recently there has been quite an influx of cachers and associated caches and i have met a least six other cachers when out and about.

    All in all i think it's good for the hobby and there's still plenty of room for lots more cachers and caching.

    I wonder if footballers felt the same way when that hobby/game first stated? :anicute:

  5. I agree. A certain newbie in the midlands has set 15 and found 1.

    His first caches were rather poor and in chinese takeaway containers, they

    were not very good and were picked up as so by the publishers.

    However his more recent caches have shown a noticeable improvement

    and are well thought out. So he is learning from the cache logs and taking action.

    I would like to see him do a few more himself though so he can get an idea

    what caching is about.


    As long as they are maintained i have no problems.

  6. Once upon a time i used to mow the lawn and wash the car at weekends. :P


    Once upon a time it used to take me 2 hours to drive to my mums in North Wales, now it takes a day. :P


    Once upon a time i used to watch telly in the evenings now i try to solve puzzle caches. :P


    You'll soon see what you've got yourself into! and you'll enjoy every minute of it. :P


    Welcome to a very addictive pastime. Get out as often as you can and enjoy it.


    I do :P
