Only a month ago - though it seems longer - I was havering and wavering over the introduction of yet another geocaching discussion board.
"Would anyone be bothered to use such a thing?" I asked Firth of Forth, Wuthered, and others in a plaintive voice.

Well, I needn't have worried. From a standing start, the Geo-X forum has taken off like a tomcat with its tail on fire: 400+ posts and 25 registered members in 30 days, is pretty good progress by any standards.

It seems that there was a need for a "geocaching forum for grown-ups" after all... Smile

So this note is to thank all the founder members for their support. The pints are on me, when next we meet.

I feel a preXmas drink event coming on. The venue might be a problem though...equidistant between N Ireland, the East of Scotland and the Highlands?

Ooohh!! There are some good caches on Arran, I believe. And I haven't done any of them. Pity Snaik hasn't put one of the top of Goatfell.

Good job, too. Razz

I deplore this obsession with placing caches on the highest bit of whatever terrain is in the frame. People have no consideration for those of us who've put a lifetime's work into perfecting a 40-a-day habit.

Anyway, it's hard enough occupying the moral high ground here in Ireland, without having to climb real mountains as well.

21 days until my holidays, and I'll be lucky to get out of Edinburgh, will have to sweet talk Mrs HH, and see if she'll let me go caching??
