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 .

Taking a road trip on the 26/27 to Newark New Jersey to pick up our dog. It's a 10.5hr drive at the best of times and we have had about a foot and half snowfall in the last few days with more expected! great stuff. time to do a little caching along a route me thinks!

Just thought some of you who have not had the Chance to get across the atlantic and see the New York Sky line would like to do so. This was taken from the New Jersey side at the point where you board the ferry for the statue of Liberty.

Are you sure you've left Ireland? That looks awfully familiar!
