    As a result of the recent breach, Canal & River Trust has had to close a 12-mile stretch to navigation while they carry out the massive repairs necessary to secure the canal. Canal breaches are exceptionally rare, although they are extremely expensive to fix and the repair bill for the damage on the Trent & Mersey Canal is estimated at £1.5 million. An emergency appeal has been launched to help repair the damage.


    If you have any geocaches along this route...they may be gone :-(

  2. My son has just told me he answered one of these calls today..


    caller...'there may be a prob with our computer

    my son...oh thank you, I am so glad that you called. It isn't running'

    caller...Can you explain the problem?

    My son...Yes, it has broken its leg!

    Caller...Are you having me on?

    My son...No you are having me on! Take this number of your system.

    Caller....(quietly) OK and then hung up!

    Tuesday, 30 December 2008 South East England, United Kingdom


    Out today with doubledragonxx to complete this great series. It was a cold day but we both enjoyed the walk. Bumped into parallel sticks at number 8. Also took in Badgers Christmas Cracker and Headley's Home. Thanks!




  4. One of our caches was reported today as only having the bag and pen remaining, it was a BIG tupperware box and it appears that the container and logbook are gone. We also recieved a report that the next nearest cache which is on the same pathway (also ours) cannot be found.....


  5. I might be being very thick, but I click on the tick box to highlight the beginner caches, but none get highlighted in green, I have checked many different pages, most caches are small or regular size, traditional type, with plenty of recent finders with the D/T = 1.5/1.5


    Me too. I also checked on the page linked.


    I did not realise I had to search the databse to find one for you!!! :P



  6. hm...got a link to the search screen? lol It's a good idea, but haven't spotted where it is.


    Apologies , the link is at the bottom of the search RESULTS page


    Beginner caches are highlighted in green below and are recommended for new geocachers. Scroll to the bottom and uncheck the setting "Highlight beginner caches" to stop highlighting caches.




  7. Anyone else seen this new filter at the bottom of the search screen on geocaching.com to highlighting beginner caches?


    Beginner CachesSome geocache characteristics make it more likely that a new geocacher will be successful when they are first getting started. Beginner caches incorporate these characteristics:


    • Traditional type
    • Low difficulty
    • Recently found by others
    • No micro sized caches
    • No problems reported

  8. to understand how the sport is played, by reading the rules and not appreciating the creativeness, uniqueness of containers that exist, how can the police give us guidelines to something that you know nothing about? If a police constable of wetherby aka police cacher 1 had 500 caches to his name, I would consider he had a true understanding of our hobby. It is like of a road planner that does not appreciate the traffic conditions of a given area and have a set of traffic lights installed which causes mayhem and outcry.
