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 .

Wanted: Sit-on Kayak

Post by johnrm » Mon Aug 09, 2010 9:58 pm

I have been looking for a while with little success for a second-hand Sit-on Kayak.
I am wondering if anyone has one that they want to get rid of or knows someone in the process of upgrading.
The sort of yoke I had in mind was a Frenzy or similar.
One of my nearest unfounds is on an island.
Grrr....

If you're that anxious you can borrow one of mine.

Yes I'm extremely anxious! Theres a cache near me that I can't get to!
However, I'm keen to own one and would hate to borrow one for fear that anything might happen to it.
Thanks for the offer medic!

I've been trawling there and missed out on a few sweet deals.
Unfortunately you need to be quick off the mark, I was chatting with 2 people who were selling on Donedeal, 1 person sold a bunch of Kayaks in 5 minutes, another had 100 calls in the first hour!

Nowhere near as good as the traditional sit ons but great for throwing in the back of a vehicle for those hard to reach caches :)

Very nice John, you must want it for more than that one cache though?

Now I can put down a few water based caches. :twisted:

Weren't we all agreed that there are a few combinations missing from the Fizzy matrix?

Expect to see a few of these in the Clare area!

(Hmmm... Where is that thread on curing addictions...)

That's a nice one. Keep meaning to buy myself something like that over here. So any houses you drive by have canoes in the yard I'm sure someone would sell/give me one of them
