  1. It might be a little far out but we did the LQ:HEREFORDSHIRE - Apples and Pears cache this weekend - the views are stunning http://coord.info/GC15XTD
  2. I would stick a needs maintenance note on it. A bees nest appeared next to one of my caches - about a year after publication and a fellow cacher and his family got stung a few times - I felt really bad and wouldn't want anyone else to go through that so I archived the cache straight away. Log here
  3. it never did , when you click on it the bubble pops up and you click on the link in there to open the cache page If I click on a cache on the old map the "bubble" does not pop anymore. I just get the message "Parsing Cache Description" but nothing happens. Thats exactly the problem I have! - You dont work for a french company beginning with T do you Anyway - doesnt look like I will be doing much cache planning at work anymore
  4. Ah cool - Ive got a result..of sorts. The old maps are working but for some reason my work PC does not like the BETA maps....odd but not unworkable Thanks for your help! Chris
  5. You can click a button in the bottom right that says - dont show this again Still no luck with my map
  6. Hi everyone. Up until the update I was able to view caches, both found and unfound, on the Beta Maps as this is how I normally decide where I am going to go caching. Today however all I get is the map and no caches..I have tried zooming in, zooming out, clearing my cache and cookies.....nothing seems to work. I have tried it on both Firefox and IE as well. Currently running Firefox 3.5.9 I am wondering if it is something to do with the work firewall but find it odd that it was working a couple of days ago. (Yesterday just seemed to be really slow all day so I didnt do any serious map work) Anyone else suffering with this or is it just me? Any suggestions on how to resolve would be appreciated..the last thing I actually want to do at work is work! Chris
  7. Today all my have disapeared off my map view...anyone else get this??
  8. Sounds a really useful script - got a link?
  9. It is my understanding that you would need to swim / paddle to this cache Cache Good luck!
  10. But what's the point? What's the difference between me saying - "Park in the Dog and duck" or "Park in the car park with the sign that has a four legged and two legged animal on it"? Or "cache placed with permission from the owner of the nearby building with windows and a sign with a lion on it"? Why not just call a pub a pub and if it is good why not say so...you are not forcing people to go in there! If someone says that the Golden lion in the village does some good grub then I may or may not choose to eat there..I am an adult and able to make my own choices after all! I would, however, be grateful for the cache owner pointing it out, especially if it is at the end of a long series. Not digging at the reviewers - I think they do a great job - more at the guidelines (Which I think need to exempt pubs :laughing:)
  11. Ive submitted my listing for Brighton...looks like it could be an excellent resource
  12. Mine turned up on Saturday and it is fantastic - very very impressed.
  13. I am slowly working my way around..hope to pick up numbers 3, 4 & 5 next week
  14. well, did ya? To date, I have received 2 TBs and a Coin. All of them have been returned to circulation. Great news - well done!
  15. Nothing to stop you having a pint afterwards someone - it just cant be a seperate event...
  16. Yes it is. You need to register a 2nd twitter account and then link this account to an email address registered at www.twittermail.com Have publication notices forwarded to this new email address Such emails are then tweeted by this 2nd twitter account, so you then need to have your main twitter account follow the 2nd account. Ah I see - great, thanks for your help
  17. Does anyone know if it is possible to get 'publication' notifications sent to twitter?? Thanks Chris
  18. Link to the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-12262797 Not good news IMHO
  19. Check my log out on this grotty cache - http://coord.info/GC2MJZW To be fair to the Cache Owner once he read my log he did relocate it to a far better location so it goes to show an honest log can work!
  20. The best FTF prize I have been lucky enough to get was a home made keyring - maid from an old computer chip board. Part of the puzzle involved working out Binary code and I thought it was a really nice touch. You can also purchase FTF badges and the like from various online geocaching retailers such as Geotees (there are others so you may want to shop around) My recommendation is to go for something a little different if you can as IMHO it is much nicer. Good Luck Chris
  21. So a few months in - have you recieved any TB's?? I think this is a great idea BTW
  22. I have an indoor one in a Library in Brighton - not many visits yet but it has gone down well with those that have found it. PM me if you want more details. Chris
