March 13th 2017

When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Geocaching Road Trip soundtrack

https://www.geocaching.com/play/promo/roadtrip See "Check out the Geocaching Road Trip ‘15 Spotify playlist" at the bottom of the page. It's an eclectic selection of songs for any roadtrip. I don't Spotify, so I youtube'd the songs. Some I know, some (like "Hello Geocachers" :lol: ) I did not...

Re: Europe's First (04 Cliff Walk Series)

Didn't think it was a big deal tagging it at the end and the page wasn't changed like the rest, but if people want it changed back it's no problem. you see, the problem is, "Europe's First (04 Cliff Walk Series)" doesn't fit nicely on a swiss roll :( Whereas "Europe's First" does \:D/ 001.jpg It's ...
