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 .

Big welcome to some local pals of mine, Eily and friends, who have decided to get involved in the madness, going around hoovering up all me caches. Even finding extra ones that others, and even I couldn't find during maintenance visits!!!

Hi folks. Not quite sure what we're getting ourselves into, but we're having great fun so far anyhow :)
The kids think we've gone a bit mad, except the eldest who knows Kili well, so has known about all this for some time. Think he was hoping to keep it from us :)
Anyhow, thanks for the warm welcome and good wishes and who knows where we may bump into each other :D

All the best - but I'm sure you'll not need it, as your introduction to the hunt came from one of the old masters - he's forgot more about caching than the rest of us will ever know :lol: .

Also I wouldn't let him talk you into you trying and clearing Ireland in your first year or two - I don't think that will ever be done again =D> =D> =D> .

Hi. Just a quick note to say I finally got around to getting myself a new and slightly more interesting name - at least on the Geocaching.com site - so the cacher formerly know as Eily is now "Blue Jay 59" - Hopefully you'll be seeing that name on a cache log near you soon.
At least you might if this weather would improve. :D

When you pass 900 what's 20? :shock:
Methuselah or Metushélach (Hebrew: מְתוּשֶׁלַח / מְתוּשָׁלַח, Modern Mətušélaḥ / Mətušálaḥ Tiberian Məṯûšélaḥ / Məṯûšālaḥ ; "Man of the dart/spear", or alternatively "when he dies/died, it shall be sent/has been sent") is the oldest person whose age is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, given as 969 years. He died on the 11th of Cheshvan of the year 1656 (Anno Mundi, after Creation), 7 days before the beginning of the great Flood.[1] According to Rashi on Gen. 7:4 , The Holy One delayed the Flood specially because of the 7 days of mourning for the righteous Methuselah in his honour.
Anyway it's nice to know that Kili considers me righteous :D Now all I need is permanent delaying of the floods in Fermanagh :roll:

Boy, speaking of floods, just down from the mountains with Hezekiah and you would not believe the floods in Wicklow! Streets washed a way and guys being pulled out of flooded dips in the road. Snow on the mountain melting pretty fast but not fast enough for our hike as we had to turn back approaching a small mountain as it was still too deep!

Do you think we will be able to go ahead on the 30th Sean? Or is it still too early to tell?

Hard to tell. Depends on the weather between now and then really. If it stay like this then it should be ok. I guess that much of the melting should have run off by then and if our walk is going to stay on the Wicklow Way route I'd say it shouldn't be a problem.
