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 .

Crete

Post by THE_Chris » Tue Aug 30, 2011 8:20 am

It looks like I'll be sent to Crete for a few days for a conference, so what would be better than finding a few boxes on the island!

I might try to organise an event over there to say hello to some local Cretan Cachers, but does anyone been there and would recommend anything good on the island? I dont know if I'll have a car yet or how any of that will work.

I'll be staying somewhere near here -> http://maps.google.com/maps?q=crete&hl= ... src=6&z=12

Any 'must-do' ones on the island? The PQ is ready and good to go!

I found a few in Crete two years ago. I can't remember any of them standing out as must dos. The caches were pretty well spread out so renting a car for a couple of days made sense. Enjoy the trip.

Thanks, forgot to reply!

Crete is good so far, only about 3 within walking distance of the hotel and one more at the airport. Not on a numbers run but can get Greece onto the FindStatGen map! Also these are easily the farthest caches from home so thats also a benefit.
