Certianly more doable in your own area when you are a new cacher.
With only one webcam and a couple of virtuals in Dublin, once they are found & logged, it's harder to hit a big number of icons from home base in a day.
Aiming for : Event, Cito, Multi, Wherigo, Trad, Puzzle, Letterbox & Earthcache in the one day is doable though. :wink:

8 is very good - had a look at the person with 10 that must have been great craic
planing and chasing those icons that day - she put a lot of leg work in -fair play
hopefully theres others planing to get as many as possible on CITO day.
and it will all add to the craic on the day
i would say there is others making lists - why not ?- it is but once a year .

Don't forget to factor in low tide times if Balscadden Bay Earthcache is in your plans :)
Use this link http://www.irishtimes.com/news/weather/tides to see when low tide is on the day

Unfortunately I've already logged that one, so I'll have to go a bit further for my Earthcache = but still very doable.
Just have to go check out the Wherigo so that doesn't slow me up on the day.
The Shipwrecked one has been replaced :D - but that will be for another day too.
