  1. picked up one today from Blacks in Ambleside. they still have a few left and have loads of advertising. i had a great chat with the people working in the shop, one is into caching and the other is very interested to get started, so i guess the promotion is working if only on millets and blacks staff! btw the activation cose as freely advertised on the website is: VisitUK
  2. well done tashington! you have put in a great effort. i always enjoy reading your logs!
  3. bristol sounds great to me and can i put forward the sugesstion you make it around the same date as this year as i will hopefully be down that way at that time anyway!
  4. I had a snake strike at me while replacing a cache, luckily it missed and once i had got over the shock i was really happy as it stayed around long enough for me to get some photos of it. i love spotting wildlife while out caching, it's one of the reasons i go out. as long as you are careful and watch where you are putting your limbs you will be fine!
  5. i agree that they should be distinguished from micros, there is a big (or is it a small?) difference between something the size of your thumb nail and a fim canister!
  6. mine does!! she often says that she is a geocache widow! however on the couple of times i have dragged her out i am sure she secretly enjoyed herself and she has even found caches i struggled to see!!
  7. as someone who enjoys wild food it was a shame the origonal post was closed. i am always on the look out for new things to eat while out caching! apparently we are not allowed to enjoy other hobbys, it's all about the caching!!
  8. buy a pda with a gps on it ok that raises pobably an old question but which is the cheapest pda that will do everything a cacher needs?
  9. wow. i have been away from the forums for a while and when i come back there is a new cache type! unfortunetly i only have a basic garmen etrex so can't take part just yet. does any one know what is the cheapest way to upgrade to a device which is compatable?
  10. thanks for the advice. I am looking for who 'owns' a road bridge, over a river (for an earth cache) but had no idea where to start!
  11. I always try to avoid parking in NT carparks because in the lakes they are way to expensive. I also get annoyed when they charge over the odds and then have a box for you to donate money to them as well! it seems very cheeky to me. I understand that they do do some good work but i think they could make the parking charges a little more reasonable.
  12. Here's a couple from my days caching yesterday! Be careful when replacing caches Don't wear shorts
  13. Wow thats great I was wondering when i would get the chance to go somewhere else in the world to do an earth cache but since i have done one in Cumbria and one in Devon I guess i can get a pin. off now to fill out the form!! edited to say oops still need one more to get the pin!
