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 .

Funny but forgot the bit about finding the paved roadway in/out of the GZ after having waded through gloop!

I've seen versions of this before, but not this one ..... until now:

If you want to try out the challenge yourself visit GC1KM0J. And if you solve the puzzle (it's only a 4/4), then it's a trip to New Zealand's South Island to log it.

Came across this funny photo...
funny log photo.jpg
A couple who found 'GC3FVQQ Brunel's Folly' seen this log in the logbook and took a photo to attach to their log.
It says "the girlfriend didn't make it down the hill, might have to break up with her" signed by someone called Stephen.
Along with the photo, under 'description' the finder wrote "guess mines a keeper then" :D

Genius Ciarán! Absolutely genius! :mrgreen:

Well what can I say?! Just bloody brilliant!
(And 100% true as well. Damned Germans!)
So many highlights in the video...
- community maintenance & throw-down reference
- people asked to leave the room
- Hezekiah stall
- Abbey in tears
- 17½ reference
... but the best reference was Mein Fuhrer = Chris!!!

Loved it!

Oh and one tip... you need to watch the vid on your computer. My iPad just showed "blank" where the video box should be.

Thanks Ciaran.
And Merry Christmas to all from Oz!

Glad to see you've got me in charge anyway :D I''ll have to put out some puzzles and do geoart in the shape of a swastika. And all the German references... so true... am I the only one who has been to an event in Germany? Real German cachers?

That was very entertaining and you clearly have too much time on your hands!

Nice to see a Corkman in charge, just goes to show we have agents everywhere!

Not so much a "funny" --- but "curious" --- does anyone have a clue about what's behind this suspicious Event in mid-February...??!!
