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 .

eh, why does my profile have a Souvenir for the socializer? I haven't attended an event in August...yet. I have the explorer souvenir too which is right as I've found plenty of traditionals. Anybody else have a 7 Souvenirs of August souvenir that they shouldn't have?

Maybe it's honorary? ...bestowed by Groundspeak on the select few.

Did you log a 'will attend'? Maybe that triggered it?

Probably a timezone thing. It was probably the 1st of August in Seattle :)
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

Three down, three to go. The mystery cache will be the most awkward. Closest one is in Carrick-on-Suir but I will be attending Sarahmur's event next Monday so I had a look around and the phone box one in Dawson Street looks like a lot of fun.

42190.

Just snuck over the line before the end of the month thanks to Abbey Ackbar (for the only unfound letterbox within about 100 miles) and to sarahmur for organising a very enjoyable event.
