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 .

Today (Thu 13 Feb) they have trekking poles for EUR 15.99 a pair.

Picked up 2 pairs for myself, or rather for members of my family who need to be coaxed outdoors 8).

I bought them last year and, if they are the same ones, the quality was excellent. I will be getting more.

Got the trousers! A bit to long, but well appointed.
Didn't get the poles, jury's out on them....

I spotted a couple of items that might be of interest.

Today (Thu 11 June), LIDL have a Power Bank for EUR 12.99, which can give your phone another 30 minutes or so of usage after the GPS has chewed the battery.

Next weeks, Thu 18 June, they have some camping offers, if you're planning a visit to Clare in August 8).

More hiking stuff on Monday 07 September. The poles are priced higher than usual, so may be 'better'.
