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 .

HELP! Lost my Garmin Oregon 650 at GCJ39P

Post by Sabbi » Fri Mar 27, 2015 9:16 am

Hi all,

I hope one of you can help me.

I did the Corran Tuathail GCJ39P (http://bit.ly/1M9E28m) on march 19th.

Unfortunately I've lost my Garmin Oregon 650 on the way back. :cry:
On the way back we came along the ZigZag-route.

Here you can see the saved track of our route (track was saved with a FR920XT). I must have lost it on the marked red line:

If someone of you can help me or will find (or have found) my Garmin, please let me know.
A nice reward is waiting :!:

Regards,
Sabbi

Hi Sabbi,

Unfortunately, I can't help as I'm too far away but you might have better luck posting this on the Geocaching Ireland Facebook page or the The Emerald Isle Cachers Facebook page, as both receive more traffic than these forums.

Hope you get it back!

Sarah
