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 .

not sure if this is in the right forum but!...

so i was out getting a few caches when i saw a spot which a thought was worth a look to place a cache..
so out of the car had a little look around where i could maybe hide one and i found a cache at the spot..
at first i thought i had found a new one that had not been publshed yet but whan i opened it the log was pretty well filled up..
so why is it not showing on my searches and i dont think it has ever been there otherwise i would have looked for it as its not far from where i live..
it is on the belmont road off the ballymiscaw road craigantlet..so anyone from belfast/ards area know the one?
if so can i have the gc code so i can log it...

thanks..steven..

Two possibilities are most likely...

1) Its an old cache that was archived but never removed.

2) You've done a multi or Puzzle the easy way :P

Was there a name or GC number on the log?

Was the container a small camouflaged metal bison tube that says Hogwild or something similar on it?

Looks like this?

That would be the one I'm thinking of then! Final to a puzzle if I remember right!
