  1. Don't want the reaction getting out of control MBF Precisely, the fallout would be much too great!
  2. I've wanted to try this for ages. If I don't have anything on that day I'll definitely try to be there.
  3. I vote for the Tomb Raider series out of Brookwood Cemetery. I loved this series and the cemetery itself. I took a number of new cachers there for their first finds and it was enjoyable just to follow them and re-walk it. And as they've come up in a previous post recently, The Monopoly Series.
  4. I'll guess at Robin Knox Johnson. I'm probably out by a couple of centuries or something.
  5. Hmmm. Well the second word could well be Cow or Cat and the first could still be salty but that wouldn't make sense. Then again you did say it was The Sun.
  6. Yes, there was about 5 years ago. They were set by tophat, (where is he now?) and are archived. They were called The London Monopoly Board Series and were most enjoyable but the whole board was never set. The following is the link for part 1 http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...a1-23a187df1735
  7. Nope. Nope So close that I might have given you it because that is a substantial part of the answer if it hadn't been for the fact that The Lavender Hill Mob were obviously stal;king your answer for inspiration As Yes, DING BANG DING! When they berthed HMS Belfast in its current position they wanted to set the guns at a target at the limit of their range to give visitors an idea of the distance they could cover. That target is London Gateway/Scratchwood. Many would say it would be a good idea if they decided to fire them some day! Not sure that they re-set them each day to take into account tidal rise though, so watch out if you live in Hendon! Over to you Lavender Hill Mob.
  8. Thanks Nediam. Hopefully this one hasn't come up before. What is the connection between HMS Belfast and London Gateway Service Station, (formerly Scratchwood Services)?
  9. I have a feeling Lady Godivas husband was called Leofric so I'll go with her.
  10. [i logged it as a DNF and emailed the owner who verified that I was at the correct place and the cache had gone, he said I could log it as found...............is that OK? Log owners discretion. If they say log it then you can. I have a virtual which requires an e-mail with some information. If I get a slightly wrong answer but it is obvious that they visited the site to get even the wrong answer I will let them log it. My reason for having that cache is to get people to see the object involved not answer a question. By the same token I just did a cache in France and realised, whilst in the middle of nowhere that I hadn't got anything to sign the log book with so took a photo of the actual cache container and asked for that to be taken as proof of visiting and finding the cache. I would have thought that most "finds" that are not 100% as should be will be given if they have been approached in the proper spirit of the game.
  11. 1932. A guess based on my mum being born in 31 and my father in 33 so I thought I'd split the difference.
  12. As long as it doesn't turn out to be the annoyingly self-satisfied SimonC-owl. Of course it could be as he's involved in The Eggs Factor!
  13. Well, if it's to do with 1980s kids tv you're 20 years too late for me. Now if they were to do with Supercar or Fireball XL5!!!!
  14. Yes I've done that too! I haven't seen one of my caches for nearly two years but people continue to find it on a regular basis. I guess each time someone replaces it it is 6 inches further to the right and by now it's moved quite a bit. Well, that's my excuse anyway.
  15. I too tend to log a DNF if i've had a goodish look. As a cache owner I wouldn't go rushing to check mine unless I had two or three DNFs in a row and also taking into account the experience of the cachers involved. I wouldn't expect anyone to take my DNFs any more seriously than the fact I can't spot a cache the size of a barn. I wonder if there is a log of the caches where only one cacher has failed to find it. I suspect I'd hold the record!
  16. I'm part of the " don't care what sort of cache as long as it's interesting and well hidden". I did a micro last week which was cunning. I have virtual finds which I enjoyed and also traditionals as part of a multi which took a day and gave much pleasure on a quiet sunday. Regardless of container type, let's think about where we are placing them and why bring someone there. A cache in the middle of nowhere with a stunning view, a micro hidden in an unusual way in an urban setting, a virtual of a unique site or monunent, all have their merits. We need all types though, as has been said, without the traditionals there will be few places for bugs and coins.
  17. I sometimes take some time to look at early entries in log books as I go round, and having taken a sabbatical from caching for a year or so it does remind me of those who seem to have gone off never to return. I think they might have gone and got a life.
  18. Where's the Bloody Cache!!!!!! It gets used a lot when I'm out!
  19. Thanks all for those. I shall see which one best suits.
  20. The Haggis Hunter has nicked my birthday. If only I hadn't been born early, my due date is still available.
  21. I've got a whole load of co-ords saved as a csv file. I'm sure there's a way to turn in into a .loc file so I can use it through easygps. Can someone remind me how to do it or am I completely mistaken as usual.
  22. Just posting to move it up the board cos I never have the energy to click through to page 2.
  23. Wait to see but I think you might be right Jackie cos I'm pretty certain SnowWhite is on the cover. I can't remember the velvet snake either.
