  1. Mine is a character from a Newcastle United fanzine. Walker being part of Newcastle it basically has nothing to do with putting one foot in front of the other. As part of a comic strip it was sometimes more interesting and amusing than the football.

    Folk who've met me know I'm much better looking ;);):D

  2. Walker Dan is/was a character in a Newcastle United fanzine a number of years ago, Walker being a part of Newcastle, so really has nowt to do with putting one foot in front of the other, although we do a fair bit of walking. The avatar is a copy of Walker Dan himself.

  3. I can confirm that ticks are not pleasant little critters. A friend contracted Lyme's disease from a tick bite 3 or 4 years ago and was seriously ill for a couple of months spending a couple of weeks in hospital. It took him nearly a year to get back to normal. It was a tick from Switzerland that caused all the bother but it is still contractable in the UK I believe.

    I think the best solution is to avoid being bitten in the first place. I have heard of a product called Tick Off (honest) but haven't seen it on sale. I suspect it may just be a Deet based insect repellant.

  4. Thanks for all your kind words ( there doesn't seem to be too many of those around just now.........again).

    I think we need to go back to basics and just go out and enjoy ourselves without interfering with anybody else or each other (oh er Mrs that doesn't sound quite right) icon_redface.gif.

    We have enjoyed all (well most) of the caches we have done and have enjoyed going to new areas of the country and going to parts of our own area we didn't really know.

    Highlights - the next cache as it is always somewhere or something different.

    Low points - the ones we didn't find when everyone else did (and said they were easy). I will be getting my eyes tested again very shortly.

    We have a good number marked down as still to find and hope everyone can find as much enjoyment finding caches around the country and are not put off by some of the forum posts.

    We soldier on icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif and enjoy ourselves.

  5. Well done folks, a fair handed approach from the BBC. Not sure if it was just our tele but the colours went a bit funny half way through.

    Nice of Chris to place his cache within 30 minutes of home, we hurtled up and beat the rush. Nice night for a drive out but Mrs Dan had to hang on going around the corners. Got there just before some locals, who didn't have a tele, didn't know anyhing about caching but dashed out when their mates told them about it.

    It's all go being a cacher icon_wink.gif
