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 .

:( Unfortunately it's not for pleasant reasons - but it looks as though I'm going to be heading out on Friday next, will be there for just a couple of days before coming back.

However, anyone who wants to send a TB out that way can certainly take advantage of my suitcase - and naturally I have the right contacts to place TBs in appropriate caches after my trip.

Sounds like a funeral to me - condolences if this is the case.
It's an awful long way to go for a couple of days :(

Safe trip, and look after yourself.

Actually it was the chance to say goodbye to my father-in-law, but I didn't make it and decided against the trip for the funeral. I did get to talk to him a few days before he went, but it never seems enough. Funny how I didn't feel that I missed Aus until now. Thank-you for the kind thoughts.
