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 .

I was slack...I had been browsing fairly regularly, but I hadn't logged in or posted in an age! #-o :oops:

Alas, my old account passed on and went to GCI forum heaven.

And so, a HUGE thank you to Donnacha who has waved his magic wand and attributed my old account's posting history to my shiny new forum account. Much, MUCH appreciated! =D>

Hello to all the newbies and oldbies :D

Since I was last on here...

I've started my own business, selling incense, simmering granules, fragrance oils, ash catchers, oil burners etc...at selected markets, craft fairs and music festivals. (which has pretty much tied up all my weekends all year round).

I've had my thyroid gland removed.

And I've lost my pride & joy, the VW Caching-Wagen....t'was stolen and burnt just a week before Christmas. Once I have a new caching-wagen, VW flavoured again of course...I fully intend to blow the dust of the little yellow Etrex again and go hunt for another bit o' tupperware :D

Welcome back Caroline :mrgreen:
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."
