The size of a micro generally is regarded as a 35mm film canister.

 

Where you are located for someone to help?

Hi,

 

I'm brand new just out of the wrapping geocaching lassie who has still to bag her first cache but has her sights in it.. I just need to wait until the weekend to find it.

 

Anyone interested in adopting a wee Glaswegian lass to help her as she starts on what she is certain will be a fun journey..

 

Thanks.

Jamie, If you have a look on youtube and search creative cachehound or go to www.creativecachehound.com you will see the sort of field puzzles and caches I make. I am limiting how many more I place as I think maintaining 200 will be enough work but I have ideas for more caches and am looking for someone who wants to place and maintain them and let me know GC number so I can add to my watchlist and enjoy the logs.

Hi,

 

My first post here, I'm a complete newbie hoping to do some caching with the family, and some to get away from the family! I'm in Dawlish, Devon and if anyone would like to adopt me that'd be great. I do like to get out and about walking so planning on spreading the net across Devon.

 

Cheers, TC

We live in Peterborough and would like to go geocaching with someone who can show us the ropes. We are particularly interested in paperless geocaching. We currently have a Garmin GPS 12 & are waiting for a Garmin Dakota 20 with maps to arrive.

Thanks

Hi all... although been on the site for 9 years, i'm considering myself a newbie as only ever found a few caches back in 2005 with friends - then rediscovered the hobby a couple of weeks ago and am now addicted! Everywhere I go I check to see if there are any near me and if I have time to dash out and find them.

 

Just thought i'd say hello and find out who's near me (Crowborough East Sussex) and if people meet up at all? Also anyone know of must do ones near me at all?

 

Thanks

Greg

I happened to be down that way a few weeks ago. I didn't do many, but did very much enjoy a walk out onto part of Ashdown Forest to find a letterbox type - Camp Hill Spider. Looks like it's pretty near you - the walk was a good one and there are several other caches in the same sort of area - you already have a couple of them found: just need to explore the other side of the road now!

 

The Pooh series up and around the Pooh Bridge Virtual looked quite nice as well - nice walking as far as I could tell although I only did one of the boxes and the Virtual.

 

Look like lots of stuff - I seem to recall there being more bigger ones the further south I looked, but I might be failing dismally on that.

Thanks Blue Square Thing - completed 43 around the area this weekend - was right next the Camp Hill Spider but there were cows all over the place and didn't fancy heading into them alone! Going to try again next weekend :-)

Those cows seemed relatively benign as far as I could tell tbh!

 

Try and do Camp Hill Spider with a map and a compass rather than a GPS btw. Good fun :-)

I'm looking for a Geo Caching Buddy in the Denbigh area, North Wales.

 

I generally do a lot of them on my own, but i enjoy going on "Missions" up and down the countryside.

 

I'm quite adventurous and a bit of a hippy, So if your looking for a fellow Buddy who has a bit of a laugh then drop me a message.

 

I have a particular interest in Neolithic sites :)

Hi everyone!

 

I'm Mike, a newbie to geocaching. I would love to be part of the 'adopt-a-newbie' program. I've done a couple of finds but nothing too serious yet, and only using my phone. So i'm eager to do more!

 

I'm London or Oxford based so it would be great to meet people from there or surrounding areas.

 

I'm a cultural geographer doing doctoral research into the uses of location-based services and what they mean for people in everyday life so the more I can lean about geocaching the better, for it sounds like one of the most interesting (and fun) uses of GPS technologies.

I would suggest going to one of the London monthly events organised by Goldpot.

Always friendly banter, beer and food. You'll pick up some great tips of you talk to the right people. :rolleyes:

The next is 26NOV - look up the code GC5G28H for info.

DARWEN - BB3 area looking to be adopted :D

 

Have been geocaching on and off for a couple of years but feel it is more hit and miss than knowing what I am doing. Have found just over 100 so far. I have a satmap which we use for *ahem* proper *ahem* walking and I use my sony expira android with geocaching app for actual geocaching. Currently I look on the website and then write everything down in a little book, coordinates, hints etc !! Have you stopped laughing yet?

 

I am 50+ female, and tend to geocache on my own (OH has a mountain bike!), occasionally my eldest son joins me. I work, and have elderly parents so time is precious.

 

Thanks,

 

Nance2112

From the caches you have found I think you are in the North West. This forum is not as busy as it used to be as most people seem to prefer TwitFace now, so I suggest that you look at the

" Geocaching Organisations in the U.K. and Ireland" thread which is pinned at the top of this forum to see if there are any groups local to you. Secondly I suggest you look for an event near you and attend it. You will find people are friendly and ready to help you

 

Good Luck
