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 .

New Geocacher

Post by dueyfinster » Fri Aug 06, 2010 10:53 pm

Hey all,

Been Geocaching a while, not as obsessed as my cousin - bottlecapper (on here). I started with friends in college [l4flare and lolly810, not on here, yet] (a friend started a Geocaching Society).

My faves are easy magnetic types, preferably not too small. I drive a bike, use Garmin Zumo 660/iPhone (getting 4 soon) usually have some gloves on, so leafy or railings ones are nice (although I like clever rock stashes like War memorial near Heuston). I hate being in busy areas, or having people and/or dogs around sniffing!

Plan to attend a Dublin meeting at some stage, and do all the canal/train ones (northside one through Leixlip, Co. Kildare) but the never never is my favourite timescale!!

Welcome to the forums 8)
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."
