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 .

I'm off to London this weekend and have 3 TBs that need to make their way to the UK.

Has anyone got some suggested caches where I might try to drop them? I'll be staying in the West End... but won't have much time available...

Might be worth posting in the Groundspeak UK and Ireland forum for some local input. Have a feeling you may find it more difficult than you think to find a big enough cache.

Thanks for the suggestion - my own research keeps finding either nanos/micros, or caches that are out of service right now. And I won't have time to entertain myself with a multi...
