  1. You must be well loved. They usually have my farewell events after I leave. :antenna:


    No Sweet love here Webscouter.....You can already see that from Carbon Hunter's Post ;-)

    All farewell arrangements are self - made.



  2. This is wonderful news - now the rest of us may be able to get some FTF's again :antenna:


    Seriously - will be sad to see you go.


    Can you perhaps bring it forward a few days as cincol will be here from Qatar for the middle part of Eid.


    HAHA.... You never know, I might fly in to do FTF ... lol

    Keeping by the recent caches...I should look for a home between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.....lots of them are slipping by because of distance ;-)


    It would be great to finally meet Cincol. Lets see if I can pull it by Eid. My only fear that many will be travelling out during the holidays. I will contact local cachers and see.



  3. Hi Everyone


    As some of you might already know, we are leaving UAE for the time being. We are planning a farewell event on 26th Nov (Fri). We wish to meet all fellow cachers with whom we have spent all this time. Let us know if the date is suitable to majority of you. It will be in a cafe somewhere in AD.



  4. Hi Everyone


    We are camping on 28th Oct (Thu) at Al Hamra EarthCache site (near Ruwais) - Aeolus’ Fingerprint

    GC27GCD. Anyone interested to join us for this overnight stay. We will drive back to Abu Dhabi on Friday after doing some caching in Ruwais. You can choose to stay longer or be flexible with the trip.


    Let us know.

  5. You can also join and post queries at www.uaeoffroaders.com. I attended their New Year event and there was plenty of wood arranged by the marshals. You will get reply within hours. You are most welcome to join the club for desert experience as the trips run out of abu dhabi and very often trips in Al Ain area.



  6. Hi - I came across this site via leosoul and the South african forums.


    Check it out :


    TB RESCUE - http://www.tb-rescue.com/


    It has already freed up 2 of my own coins that have been sitting dormant for a while.


    I know bestvue and cincol are also active - so perhaps with a few more it will build some critical mass around the Gulf?


    Its a great site, isn't it ? Sorry Carbon Hunter my rescue attempt for one of your Coins went in vain. But it's an excellent tool.



  7. Boulist 44 & Aussie Pixie from France are visiting Doha again in Feb.

    We will be spending a few days in the Oman and a few days in ADH so with a bit of luck we should grab quite a few of your gulf caches so as to add more international logs to your caches.

    Happy caching to all you gulf cachers.


    Ahlan ... As they say here for "Welcome". Let us know if you need any help.



  8. I also have same concern. And i opened a thread few weeks back but noone had a clue to resolve this. Now it seems Grounspeak have to resolve this. If a user is not logged in then it should open at the Green lake (or whatever that is). If a user is already logged in, then it should center at my home coordinates. I use this extensively and would like this to be resolved.



  9. leosoul - well done on a rapid fire 50 caches


    Keep going and lets see 100 soon - well done on your first hide too


    Many thanks Carbon Hunter. This Rapid Fire would not have been possible without Mild heat, Family Support and support from guys like you.





  10. I would really love to post some earthcaches but I am not sure where to look for them while researching on Internet for a particular area/country. The only way I see is if you stumble upon something while visiting that place. Would appreciate any pointers that can help in discovering local earth cache potential ?




    The Middle East in literally TEAMING with EarthCache potential. I think the reason why there are so few is the time and effort involved in developing them. I have a good few lined up that I would like to get published, but quite frankly time is the issue here. However, watch this space during the summer when I will have some time to get down to doing the publishing! :ph34r:


    Hi Cincol.....I guess I'm misunderstood :ph34r:

    I am looking to find some geological aspects of UAE and publish them as earthcaches. Do you know any book or Internet reference from where I can take hints about the potential places. I have the time to research and visit them.



  11. I am from Texas in the US and am coming on a bird watching tour in February around Dehli, Ranthambore, Bharatpur, Agra, Nainital, Dhikala and would like to leave a series of Geocaches called India Birder. I would like to find Geocachers that could help me maintain them as I won't be back until November. Could someone also suggest what would be the best size cache for India. I would think one that would be small enough to conceal well but large enough to carry the Geocache message (describing what the cache is and not to disturb it). It would also be interesting to put that in the local language for a local that might mistakenly find it. Thanks, Joseph Hunt, Austin, Texas


    Hi There.... I live in UAE but belong from Delhi. There aren't many caches in India considering its potential. Taking into account the terrorist attacks on major Indian cities, its best to place a cache outside any major city. People snooping around with GPSr inside the city wont be welcomed I guess by security.

    If you are on an eco trip its best to put some Earthcaches. Being virtual in nature these are I think best in Indian environment and you can maintain them from you place or I can also help you whenever I am in Delhi for visit.

    Contact me personally if you need any more help.

  13. I was caching yesterday inside a golf course when I saw a muggle coming to me. I abandoned the search and started going off the track when he intercepted me and asked "looking for geocache" ?

    Haha...I said Yeah....how do you know ? Turned out he is fellow geocacher who works at the golf course. Took some pictures, shook hands, nice smiles and time to move on ;-)

  14. It's simple. Just pan the Geocaching Google map to where you want to show, such as centered on your house, then click "Link to this page" at the top. Put that link into a bookmark in your browser. Then, all you have to do is select the bookmark and it will show the map you want.


    But its lame that it cant take my home coordinates from my profile and center it.



  15. I just happened to be in a gift shop just next to Technical scissors on Murror Road in Abu dhabi. They had a pack with bunch of small magnets of different sizes. Around 5 Dhs. Maybe someone can check that if they want.
