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 .

Joanie and I are off to Oslo in a couple of weeks for one of a number of cheap "Mick" flights we booked back in January. Anybody any nice suggestions for a 3 day tourist?

Bring lots of money! Seriously, it's incredibly expensive.
In Oslo there's an island with a Viking Museum which is worth checking out.
I took a train over to Bergen while I was there. The train ride was about 7 hours, but was one of the most spectacular ones I've done. Bergen was also a great place, well worth checking out.
Of course for someone like yourself I think Pulpit Rock is definitely up your road - try your best to get there! It's quite a bit away though.
Also, as usual with Ryanair, the journey from the airport to Oslo is actually quite far. Took us about 3 hours, but there was a bit of roadworks on the way.

As for caching, didn't do anything special - the regular dull city caches.
