Caching together!

:D:(:P:P:D

 

After a fun day out caching with another team of (new) cacher's, I was thinking how fun sharing the finds with others is.

 

So, which teams have you cached with? Re-live fun moments here, thank them for putting up with you.

 

You could even post which teams you would like to cache with.

 

Let's keep it fun and light-hearted. In the spirit of caching :D

P.S. I want to see lots of smilies!!!

I regularly cache with several different people....

 

I cache most often with Father_jack, purely because he's done far fewer caches than me and I can taunt him as we go along :(

 

I also cache regularly with both Bargee and ac-p. Bargee I met when I lived out in Cheshire, and he needs me to cache with him so I can go do the find, while he lags behind (/me ducks!)

 

I cache with ac-p cos he is probably one of the nicest people I know, and he only picks on me in small doses. Oh, and he fought against sinking mud for over an hour when I got stuck in it back in March!

 

I also cache with Skippy and Pingu from time to time... prior to the twins arriving, they were miles ahead of me in terms of numbers, so thanks to Emily and Matthew, I've sailed past them!

 

I'd like to cache with... erm... anyone that'll have me actually... I keep trying to arrange a caching day with Mongoose39uk, but work keeps getting in the way.

 

I do sometimes cache with my parents.. The Sandiway Searchers... but they are rank amateurs!!

 

My favourite caching partner? Father_jack... he's always available to cache when I am, and doesn't mind being dragged into the next county and beyond - where my unfounds are now!

 

Thanks to all my caching partners... I love you all really! :P

We've had the pleasure of caching with Lollybob & Cashley.

 

We also cached with quite a few other teams when we went in search of the Beast of Crimson Hill. Great cameraderie on a very enjoyable weekend. :P

 

Keith & Martin (Geotrotters) :)

 

The Beat of crimson hill was awsome because of the fellow cachers. We really felt part of a team. It is one cache that we will never forget doing.

 

We met the geotrotters when they were out looking for their very first cache, and we have kept in touch with them since. We always keep our eyes on what they have been upto and they are one of our phone a friend options.

 

We have met some lovely people and its great to meet up with them at events.

 

We love caching and what caching has brought into our lives.

 

Lolly and Bob

I have cached with a fair few people mainly at events, Pharisee being a person that always makes it up to Scotland for an event caching foray.

 

The main people that I have actually made arrangements to go out with have been TartanT (who no longer caches), roolku, Firth of Forth, Jack Aubrey (last three & I where dubbed the Edinburgh Cache Gang (ECG) by Pooter. It's a pity some people actually believe it's a real gang!!), Team Ullium (I haven't had the chance to arrange anything with Angela since Bill passed away :P ) & the last person I can think of, but of course not the least is HighlandNick.

 

I have had many enjoyable trips with all of them. :unsure::)

To be honest, I very rarely go out caching on my own now (probably why my caching average has dropped dramatically over the last year or so).

 

I cache (fairly) regularly with Omally and Hi-Tek and occasionally with Tyrolean Maid or MGAS. I've been out a time or two with Deego and Pyoung1s. That usually involves hills, trigpoints, stopping for photographs with cows and a beer or two. Highly recommended.

 

The Scottish mob... love 'em to bits... and I'm proud to have been given the status of 'Honorary Scot' :)

I try to get to their organised events whenever I can and will be up there again in a couple of weeks time to climb Schiehallion with them. They seem to enjoy their caching more somehow. Maybe it's just the great caches and wonderful country up there. Whatever.... :unsure:

 

Caching with other people is so much more fun. If you find caching on your own becoming a little 'jaded'.... try hooking up with a stranger :ph34r: Who knows... you might just enjoy it :P:blink::blink:

The group caching trips up Munros have been some of the best caching days out - Ben Nevis in 2005, Ben Macdui in 2005, and now looking forward to climbing Schiehallion in less than two weeks (for the third time!). I've had great caching days (and nights) and even a weekend with the ECG. I've cached with the 'Most Enthusiastic Cacher Ever' - Allieballie. I've cached as part of Team Tongue (Pooter, Billy Twigger and Highland Nick) for 12 hours in the pouring rain on the far North coast of Scotland - a highly enjoyable and memorable day. In years gone by I've been out on caching forays with Perth Pathfinders; and The Forester ( <_< ). I spent a day caching in Manchester with Mongoose39 and Powerbookfanatic (or rather they led me around some caches!).

 

I used to do long solo caching Sundays. Since I met Jack Aubrey, I no longer have to cache alone, and with him have extended my caching range considerably to Europe: Dublin, Portugal and Prague. It's a wonderful hobby.

I enjoy caching on my own and with others for different reasons. When I am on my own I can use my chilled approach of sitting back and slowly looking for the cache. I also tend to walk further than others want to.

 

When caching with others it is mostly the comradeship and banter that I enjoy and not necessarily the caching. I enjoy them both equally.

used to cache all the time with meismook but due to work not able to now.

Ive met loads of cachers out in the field, The Golem, MBFace, Crag Rat and saw dunscott (but didnt know it was him until the log) coming down from a cache as we were sat admiring the veiw

OK, I've hung back long enough.........

 

I used to go out caching with my "Dad", (grumpy old git if ever there was one), but since he moved away my caching has decreased somewhat - it's much more fun taking the Mick out of the older generation whilst out caching.

 

John, you didn't mention your experience with "Dad", myself, and that dadgum dog of his......... :ph34r::huh::huh:

Indeed I didn't.... That was very remiss of me :mad: Apart from listening to you two bickering all day like a pair of old women, it was a splendid days caching (even if 'Dad' did get us thrown out of a churchyard!!) :ph34r::ph34r:

I have cached with over 25 teams during the past few years and its always more fun with others.

 

Thanks to everyone who has found a cache with me :unsure::ph34r:

 

Oh! I forgot about the one cache that I did with Deego and....a couple of others whose names I can't quite remember. Caching must be the only activity in which it seemed perfectly reasonable to jump into a car with 3 strange men five minutes after I had met them in a pub, and go off into the woods. :anicute:

Just realised hadn't posted who we've cached with.

 

:laughing: Thornproof (introduced us to caching and are Gareth's Dad and partner)

:ph34r: Icarus (Gareth and Paul conquered the Beast, I have yet to have the pleasure of Paul's company on a cache)

:D The Great Redmondo (a fab caching team and we must do it again soon)

:D Geofu (newbies and good friends who are now hooked)

 

I would love to cache with anyone who could handle me!! :rolleyes: and handle The Morgan Mob style of caching!

 

Somerset is a bit sparse of cachers!!

LMAO!

 

We've been caching with loads of other cachers and have had the best fun ever! Made some fabulous friends since we started out, to the extent that we are even going on holiday with two other teams for a week! And meeting up with other cachers whilst we are there.

 

Bring it on Shropshire! :D:D:o

As Golem is such a naturally happy person here's a hug (((HUG))) :D

 

I once cached with Rutson without telling him I was in the early stages of Gastroenteritis. My need to go caching was greater than my need to stay in my sick bed. Although he did wonder why I stopped every so often clutching my sides...Its all my fault Rutson!! :o

I once went caching with Rutson and he had me climbing up cliff (well, okay, a steep bank) and climbing through a hedge. This might seem normal for me, but it was only a 1, 1.

 

As so much hugging is going on I will join in as well. :D:o;):D;):P Okay, I like that smiley. :D

Actually I was going to main a serious point at the end of that post but clean forgot with my over use of smileys.

 

I was out with G-Force yesterday caching. The caches we were doing were on the whole rather unexciting micros with the odd gem of a find. Doing this together made the boring caches barrable but did not take away from the clever ones. We might have also stopped in a pub or two. :D

I'm a little embarrassed to interupt all this talk of snogging :D ....

 

....but I do have a question.....

 

I'm interested in how these joint caching trips tend to come about. Did you know each other anyway, before you decided to go caching together? Or did you first bump into each other at a cache site? Or meet via this forum? Or some other way?

 

Just curious - in case we were ever keen to find other folks to cache with, (but you can keep the snogs, if that's ok!)

She kept pestering me and following me around, looking through our letterbox - stuff like that. :D Eventually I took out an injunction against her banning her from coming within 100 yards of our house. In the end she caught up with me in some woods near home, I tried to avoid her but she got me in a headlock... :o

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just to clarify none of the above is true, Scaw has a cache at her house - that's how we met... :D

OddSocks!!! Have you heard of "cache events"? Most of us meet each other that way, and via the forums, and via Geochat. We'd love to meet you too - come and join us. :D:D;)

 

I feel a lot of lurve in the room ;):o:P Oh yes, that is a nice smiley :D

 

Edited to correct terrible spelling and punctuation before somebody pulls me up for it, although I am sure they won't, because everyone is so loved up right now.

i quite envy you all as i dont think there are any other cachers around whitby so i dont get the chance to do any caching with anyone else :D

You came caching with us in North Yorkshire, no, wait, you are probably trying to block that out of your memory. :o

i meant on a weekly basis or monthly not counting events

Link to comment

Nope - its entirely my fault in this case. I must be mad :)

 

Anyone else go caching with their caching buddies when they were ill rather than stay at home?

 

Yes!!!

 

Last week I was off work as I had a horrid allergic reaction to something and was covered in a horrid red bumpy rash all over my neck and chest (those of you who frequent Geochat may have seen the pic!)

 

I happened to tell Rutson about a new puzzle cache close to home, and he went and solved it in 10 mins, and I HAD to leave the house and travel the 15 mile srequired, and HAD to get the FTF (which I duely shared with Rutson!)

 

Thanks Rutters :):):huh::P:)

I'm vaguely aware that such things happen, from hanging about here, but I don't think there have been any close to us - not that I've seen mention of, anyway. Must keep a better eye out.

Yeah I was a bit worried as well but you behaved yourself :huh::D:tired:

That is still one of my favorite Photos :D :D

I can recommend caching with The Cache Hoppers. Mad, the lot of them! Made a wet, miserable and stormy day more interesting because we had so much fun. Mind you, there were about 12 various cachers plus dogs at the time :tired:B):D

 

(Edited to cheer up Ms Alibags :huh::DB) - If only to stop her 'You will die a slow and painfull death for that one' phone texts :P:D:anitongue: )

 

What we need is more love in the room :D:D:D

I don't mind caching alone and sometimes am in the mood for a solitary walk and contemplate, but I do like caching in company. I especially enjoy caching with my very good mate Alice Band. She manages to keep me entertained as we walk to caches with her archaeological chit chat and picking up of ancient artifacts along the way. :tired: On saturday I would never have dragged myself away from the BBQ to go caching if she had not appeared in front of me all full of youthful enthusiasm. LOL! :anitongue:
