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 .

Hi all

I'm pretty new to geocaching living in the North Down area and have only found a few so far. My geocaching handle is The Seeker1872. After finding a cache with my daughter I invested in a GPSr and set myself a challenge to fine 365 caches in as many days currently just completed day 4.

I have opened a twitter account and you can follow me @cache_year to follow my challenge.

I also have a blog http://www.theseeker1872.wordpress.com if anyone is interested in reading about my adventures.

I hope to make some new friends through caching and you all seem a friendly bunch.

Welcome to the forum :)

And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,

Hi

Nice to see you on the forum - I had a quick read at your blog and you really have set yourself a major challenge. I hope you succeed, at least living in North Down with its very high cache density gives you a reason chance of succeeding. After about 6 years of caching I still haven't managed to fill in all the days of the year.

You may eventually make it down Hillsborough and if so I hope you take the time to complete some of my own caches.

Once again - all the best in your future cacheing and I may drop in on your blog now and again to see how your getting on.

Thanks for the warm welcome all. I have had 2 cache and dashes the past 2 days as have been very busy with work. I am trying to keep all the C&D's round my area for days like today and go further a field when I can. The long winter nights will be drawing in soon and will pose a problem hopefully more people place caches in my area. I may be in Hilsborough before you know it sarge and if I am have you a recommendation of one of your caches.

Some motivation there. That could be number 366 to celebrate my achievement if I make it that is.
