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 .

The ET Highway (again)

Post by medic143 » Fri Mar 02, 2012 2:19 am

To be absoutely clear it is Lisa's plan to do the new, revised ET series. Last year luck meant we were one of the last to do it before the original series got archived. This year we booked the trip before the announcement that the series is to be expanded to 2000 caches in June. :shock:

Our stamp arrived with 3 days to spare, we have sticker backups in case it breaks through RSI or the pad runs dry. Spare logs and spare containers are packed, the forecast is good (or at least as good as you could expect for this time of year). If we were going this weekend instead of next the night temps were -6C with the windchill.

We'll still have 8 full days in Las Vegas for the normal tourist thing although I dare say we might pick up a few extras on our travels.
