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 .

Garmin Oregon 450 on Amazon

Amazon do a yearly "Black Friday" sale on US Thanksgiving week where they heavily discount a large number of items for a short amount of time. If you have the time it's worth looking at the products they have as you could get yourself quite a bargain:

I spotted an Oregon 450 in the "Upcoming Offers":

It's worth keeping an eye on this to see what price it will be. I've been using one for a few years and am very happy with it.

Looks like it's £160, which isn't a bad price. I'd say it will be gone soon enough though.
