Hello Carbon Hunter

 

Lots and lots of geocaches waiting for you in Gauteng. While you are that side of the waters try and buy a few of your own geocoins and in collaboration with a friend place your own geocache (which he will have to maintain) It really is a chance not to be missed, and not the advice I would normally give to a new geocacher. ;)

 

Leon

 

I'll see if I can source a geocoin shop here in the hague - but do not have a geocaching "friend" this side.

 

Will certainly set up a few caches in SA - and hopefully into Africa as I travel there a lot and I see places like Kampala really need some caches.

Hi Carbon Hunter, lots of places need caches, but not all are worthy, if somebody can't help you to maintain the cache then the reviewer will not allow the listing. But don't fret about that now, get as many caches as possible in EU, come back to RSA and take it from there. :mad:

 

Enjoy

Back in SA and had my first local experience.

Great to be home and getting the family into GC'ing.

Welcome Carbon Hunter. I think that if a person often travels to certain area's in the country and maintains caches placed there often, then the reviewer will accept it. I have caches over a 100 Mile radius from home but regularly maintain them if I am in the area. OK some were in an area that I don't get to go to anymore but that is because I changed jobs but still they are within a hour to two drive from home so if anything I can still get to them should they need a bit of maintenance. I've been through some cache listings that have had no maintenance for months, but where is the owner? Far away and most likely inactive. So if it is in my area I try get some maintenance done to it from my side. I think that every cacher should maintain a cache in his area irrespective of if it is his or not. As a common courtesy. I would appreciate it if ever one of my far away caches needed some maintenance that the next finder would at least do that for me. Even if it is to replace the container with a cheap one for the time been. Recognise the cachers in you're caches area and get them on your team.

Congratulations to cslyoda and Strider_SA who recently became addicted to the sport! :huh: Soon you will see logs [finds & hides] in the North West with their names on.

 

Happy caching and put those GPSr's to good use on a regular basis. :unsure:

With the recent hit of the "Milestones" thread on this forum, let's not forget the newbies who are out there struggling to get to 10 finds! :laughing:

 

I noticed Alex B-S has come on the scene recently in Cape Town. Welcome.

 

And Snowolf coming out of a long winter hibernation, May you find the landscape lush with finds!

 

Please post welcomes here, so that newbies can feel included in the community.

 

HINT: and if you want to go the extra mile, send them the post/thread afterwards through the site so more people join us here in the forums.

 

Welcome all whom I am not aware of!!!

 

 

 

OK

Carbon Hunter I wouldn't really welcome him if you take a look at his posts.... I gather he is a spammer of sorts. He managed to visit a few threads in a matter of a few minutes, and replied on 25 with comments that made no sense. I see he is listed as a teacher from his profile. I don't see any educated reply in his posts though.

My son has also decided with his own geoaching name.

So welcome to "Ding bat". He has done one cache so far.

 

My brother in law also started on his own a few months ago. And is upto about 110 caches, and closing fast on our find count. His gc name is "The Gold Diggers".

A big welcome to Deyzelmj in KZN, bridging the gap between Ladysmith and PMB.... Very keen after we had a chat yesterday while I was in the area. Will be blitzing the area for the next few weeks and expect a nice multi or two from him in the area too. Enjoy the game dude, I am sure you will. :o

Welcome Arwen_SA - I know you've been around for a while - but it's good to see you officially in the game with Stirder_SA at your side.

I noticed that geo_j and geostormer is active in our area and both had an amazing race today at “Wrong time – wrong place”. :blink:

 

It is also good to note that geo_j planted his/her first cache. Well done to both of you and hope there is many more.

 

There is no need to battle at any of the caches in this area. Feel free to drop me an e-mail if you need assistance with any geocaching matters or with the caches in this vicinity. If I do not have the answers I will get the answers.

Hi all, I hope I have the co-ords correct and am in the right place to introduce myself :anicute:

Droffarc is me and I go about mostly on a dual purpose bike, but sometimes in a car. I prefer to travel via the roads less travelled by the maddening crowd.

 

I just recently acquired a GPSr and am new to the geocaching activity. To date I have had 12 successful finds and have hidden one - which is wheelchair friendly - I like being friendly to the dis-abled so my future caches will all (within reason) be accessable to those who are not as agile as I am.

 

I also support the CITO movement - lets clean up.

 

To promote geocaching I have included an article in my monthly wikispaces edition:

 

Promo

 

http://droffarc.wikispaces.com/2008_Oppikoppi

 

which is read worldwide, especially in the US and UK as well as Europe and a few other places, mostly by Dual Purpose bikers (Adventure aspect) as well as armchair adventurers and tourists.

 

I look forward to finding many more caches and would like to do a follow up article later in the year.

Unfortunatley I do not get much time to spend lurking about in forums but welcome any comments.

Thanks

Droffarc :)

Welcome to "Retrowe" from Botha's Hill, KZN. :D

They've got their account opened successfully, and will hopefully log some finds soon....

 

Looking forward to seeing their log for the cache that's only 300m from their home, which they didn't know about... :D

Hi

Did all that somehow the validation mail does not reach my new mail address. I have had the same problem with the sa weather service. It is something to do with Telkom I think. The mail address is brian7@telkomsa.net :laughing:
