March 13th 2017

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 .

Suggestions for NI winter walk, venue and date.

Post by kryten2x4p » Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:03 pm

So far suggestions for a walk north of the border are as follows...

1) Cloghmore loop from Kilbroney Park.

2) A Belfast Hills walk.

Personally I'd be happy with either, but a little research has led me to suggest Castle Espie on Saturday the 2nd of February as this is also World Wetlands Day. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Wetlands_Day for more.

NYR walk submitted for 12/01/13 for family friendly walk in forestry area close to M50 - more details to follow. Should be less than 2 hours walk, with 7 caches currently on the route.

2nd Feb doesn't suit me either.

It doesn't have to be the 2nd. There's also probably going to be another Runkerry CITO event around this time too to be considered.

Perhaps people could post one or more weekends that would suit them so that a date concensus can be reached.

So far the 3rd and 4th weekends in January is ok with us. We don't even mind going on New Years day itself but we know this may not suit most people and could be to late to arrange.

If you are going to choose Kilbronney, this is the route that I was thinking of on the other forum page. Belfast Hills are equally as good but I don't know of any good routes.
