  1. Clock Watching would have been physically closer but it has been temporarily archived
  2. What is the normal procedure for swapping TB's at a non-caching event and keeping the mileage correct?
  3. If it's in the Cheshire area you have to set off before the cache has even been hidden to beat aRRKs. A brand new series was launched only a few miles from us today but we thought we would leave it for a week or so to avoid the initial rush. It will be interesting to see how many people have done it before the end of the first day.
  4. Just watched it thanks to the link at the top of the page from the Cryptik Souls Crew. Congratulations, it was very good indeed. You even came across as a normal human being
  5. Only 50% of the Kelsborrow Wayfinders are Chester City supporters the other 50% don't care.
  6. Didn't want to make it an event because the idea was to make it a regular meeting. As it is informal I don't expect a massive turnout (especially on a midweek night) and no room has been booked, no arrangements made with the Mill and no new caches are being created (at least not by me). If hundreds of people say they are coming I may have to rethink. When I decided on the date the "majority" comprised of me and the the Percey Boys so on a vote of 2-0 we decided to go for March 7th. That's democracy for you Future dates will be open for negotiation.
  7. Translating the Mill into geocache language the co-ordinates are N53 11.632 W002 53.106.
  8. This is really a test the water idea. If there is enough interest we thought it would be an idea to have a local meeting on a regular basis. The Mill is by the canal (I will post the co-ords from my GPS in the next day or two). Website and directions can be found at: http://www.millhotel.com
  9. After I stated in a previous post that I would not be able to attend the St Georges Day Event Cache Jan and the Percey Boys contacted me and suggested that we set up an evening meeting in Chester. We therefore decided to meet at the Mill Hotel in Chester on Monday March 7th at 7:30pm for a general chat about caching. This is NOT an event cache and is just a chance for any interested cachers in the area to meet up for a drink although we stress that anyone is welcome to attend. The Mill is a regular in the Good Beer Guide and a haven for Real Ale drinkers with up to 16 beers regularly on handpump so even if you don't want to talk about caching you can at least start the week by drinking yourself senseless. Is anyone interested?
  10. As a local cacher I would love to attend (think I know the pub you have in mind) but as a sad Chester City fan Saturday afternoons are out for me. Personally I prefer the idea of a midweek event but I suspect I would be in a small minority.
  11. We live in Kelsborrow Way and it seemed a clever name at the time. It can be a pain to write out in a soggy logbook in a howling gale though. Both aRRKs and John & Carol have ended up in our road while out caching - this takes some doing
  12. Is that the November edition of Country Walking? Top man Stuart Maconie. Plays great music, likes football and fell walking in the Lake District and now into geocaching. I detect a kindred spirit.
  13. Congratulations from us and congratulations on the 600th (in case we miss it in the next couple of weeks) Would have liked to have met you all at the North West meet but I'm afraid football takes priority on a Saturday.
  14. Just managed an FTF on the Whitegate Way cache tonight and can recommend it as a lovely walk. Amazed that we beat aRRKs to it. Are they ill? Has someone been round to check they are alright? As a Cheshire resident its great news about the permissions. A neighbour of ours looks after the Sandstone Trail where we have placed some caches and he had made us aware that he was happy for them to be hidden as long as parking was taken into account and cars weren't an obstruction.
  15. Admittedly they had to hide their eyes for two hours.
  16. We have met a few other teams while out caching and twice we were holding the cache when the other team arrived so we had done the hard work for them. Two of these were first to finds as well. Deva Duo, who we know anyway, turned up in their car just as we started a search but we managed to find it, log it and re-hide it while they were parking (although we had to ask them to hide their eyes). PatnPete - Uplifting Day Out Deva Duo - Well Dressed g&m - Iron Bridge As Mady said, he also spotted us while we were doing one of his caches and we wondered why we were being watched so suspiciously. Thankfully he came over before we started doing the old "tieing the shoelace" routine.
  17. Having seen Beds Clangers comments in a previous thread http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=77538 pointing out that we introduced him to geocaching makes me wonder if there is some sort of family history out there where you can trace most peoples interest back to an evil godfather type figure who is slowly spreading his tentacles out across the country. We became interested after a conversation with Deva Duo who in turn were introduced by Obi Wan (I think). How far can people trace back their geocaching family history?
  18. What about a HI to the person who inadvertently introduced you to caching.
  19. Shouldn't really have made such a bold and ambitious statement without checking where it is on a map. Don't think it's anywhere near where we are staying
  20. Are there any firm plans to put a cache on Slieve Donard? We are going to NI next month and having read this thread have all of a sudden become quite keen to go up to the highest point. Of course if there is a cache there it acts as an even bigger incentive.
  21. Congratulations from the Kelsborrow Wayfinders.
  22. I think it was a broken wall so he may have got away with it
  23. Bit of an odd subject title I admit but has anyone seen this excellent film which was on TV again at the weekend? Towards the end of the film Red (Morgan Freeman) goes out into the country to find a hidden container armed only with a compass (no GPS!!!). He searches in a wall and finds the container under a rock. Hands up those people who epxected him to open the box and find a travel bug, logbook, plastic lion, keyring and a spare set of batteries? I know I did. Are there other similar moments in films?
  24. Wasn't it last week that we posted a message here congratulating you on your 200th cache??
