Double bummer - it's school sponsored walk that day - oh well, maybe the next one . . .

Thanks for organising it anyway all of you.






Don't you think that sooner or later someone will notice that its a mobile phone not a GPS your using???

icon_smile.gif - I will put this one in my diary. I want to hit some caches in this area so I will make a day of it. I'll pop in for an hour or two and then hit the road to do some more caches.






LASSITUDE- (noun) Tiredness and apathy: a state of weariness accompanied by listlessness or apathy[15th century. Via French from Latin lassitudo , from lassus 'weary'.]

I'd been hoping to organise a round-britain TB race, but just haven't had the time to do it, so I'm VERY glad you're doing this.


My original idea was to let anyone set off a TB from ANYWHERE in UK, making it travel around the UK and back to it's "home cache".... maybe you could incorporate that idea into your race, so others from further away (and who can't make the meet) can also join in?


We have a TB (with a proper TB tag too) ready to race: Silvester the Cat... it could be fun if someone else could find a "Tweety Pie"!!!


See you at the meet!!




Noone in their right mind would place a cache THERE....

Just to let you all know that we have managed to get sponsorship for the Travel Bug Race from Lynks Cables UK with a first prize of a £40 voucher with them :-)


(Thanx to Paul Blitz for the introduction)


We are also are negotiating a second prize with another company, so get your TBs in for the race.


A reminder of the race rules can be found here.

We would love to be there, but will be stuck in Weymouth at a 60th/retirement party for my mum and will hopefully be slightly worse for wear on the Sunday. Will definitly be at Winchester tho.

Just an update I will still be in the area but on the Saturday I will be with Dan & Pid videoing there particular type of geocaching for the video. I am sure it will involve a bit of night caching :-) So I may be a little tired by the time I arrive at the event.

If you are entering your TB in the race and bringing it to the meeting, please register it for the race now.


To do this, create a Note in the log and leave your TB here.


Please also send a picture of your Travel Bug to woodsmoke@jast.co.uk so that it can be added to the web site. If you can't, don't worry as we will be able to register TBs and take pictures at the meeting.

WoodSmoke and The Targett Family would like to remind people that everybody, and we mean EVERYBODY, is welcome to come and meet other geocachers at this get together.


We look forward to meeting you all and having a good old face to face chat.


We do hope that all those who originally planned to come do still make it :-)

Grow up



Fiddo, have I in someway rattled your cage?


If your having a go at me for suspecting that Gunthers remarks are intended to promote yet more antagonism on here, this time aimed at G:UK (See the new poll)then please point out to me why my previous post was in error rather than just spout "grow up" - surely you can do better?


We take our children everywhere, but they always find their way back home...

I'm confused now! icon_confused.gif

I wasn't having a go at G:UK ('cos basically i'm a big fan of the site)

I was merely asking Gunther why he was!

never mind.


Still as Woodsmoke points out it does keep his topic at the top of the list, & serves as a reminder that it's this weekend.

(I wish we could go as i'm dying to meet some other cachers, but I have a stag do on the Saturday night & don't expect to be in any fit state to do anything on Sunday icon_smile.gif)

We were hoping to attend but it now looks unklikely icon_frown.gif . My Dad's PC has gone t**s up and I've arranged to go round Sunday to rebuild the software - thanks Mr. Gates icon_mad.gif.

A great big thanks to The Targett Family and Wood Smoke for organising the bash. It was nice to see so many people there.

Oh yeah - handy hint for finding caches:- If you have fiddled with the GPSr to see what else it can do before setting off on a days caching, make sure you set the datum back to WGS84 - otherwise you end up in someones garden! icon_rolleyes.gif
