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 .

Etrex Summit for sale

Post by Kili or bust » Mon Feb 09, 2009 10:38 pm

Anyone, newbies perhaps, interested in an Etrex Summit that is surplus to requirements at present. Maybe somebody may wish to get something to get a friend or kids started on this crazy game? Only couple of months old and hardly used at all. PM me if interested.

Ah the good old credit crunch! time to sell you wears.

I have a couple of rain coats I don't need anymore as the snow and the sun don't seem to require them.

I don't suppose it's the colour one (HC)?
