Re: Geocaching Experiences and Its possibilities in Tourism cont

Yes, good question. Has this study been passed by an ethics committee? I think people would like to have more information before they complete it. We don't know if this is really for studies or if it is someone who might use our information for commercial purposes. Might still fill out the survey ei...

Re: Geocaching Africa?

We cached in Cape Town a few years ago but not remote Africa. We did release an Australian geocoin which travelled around South Africa and Zimbabwe or maybe Botswana. Its goal was to come back to us in Australia which it did a month ago! Did not expect it to last either by being muggled or taken, bu...

Re: Caching Team caching separately

Mmmmm, interesting. As someone who is currently in Canada for a week for work and logging a few finds while the other half of the team is home in Adelaide I thought I should wade into this thread. I don't imagine that we will be logging to many finds on opposite sides of the world as Mr S does not h...

Re: 10/10/10 A nice number

Mr S went to the 10/10/10 event in Adelaide hosted by Flipper and Co and Mrs S went caching in Canada. So two logs on this auspicious day in two hemispheres.

Re: Santiago, Chile & Easter island

We were in Santiago in April this year. Mrs S was at a conference each day and Mr S played tourist. Didn't get to find any caches in the city, but we are not great city cachers and prefer to cache in the bush. We loved Santiago as a city. If you are looking for somewhere to stay we can recommend Cas...

Re: CITO event in Mitcham (SA) Council Area

Hi Peter Great idea. I would have been happy for you to interview me but I will on my way back from Canada that weekend. Mr S might be able to go to your CITO without me. Have a look at some past CITO events that have been archived for ideas about how to set it up. Good luck with it and your researc...

Re: Vietnam/Cambodia

We have cached in Vietnam (mostly virtuals) and in Cambodia. The cache you mentioned wasn't out when we visited Angkor Wat in 2008. We did Ankor Wat GCA071 which was a relatively easy find. There had been a miscommunication with our guide and so for the first day of our trip we just had his brother ...

Re: 2009 Cyber Flash Mob Topic “Positive Caching Experience”

Our most positive caching experience would be completing a couple of big series caches in SA. The Onkaparinga series which had it all, and the Mount Lofty Peak series which had an evil twist at the end. Oh, and running into maccamob in the main street of Kadina on Friday night. Hope this post goes t...

Re: GC down! What did you do?

We were in our hotel room in Cape Town, South Africa trying to log the caches we had found by taxi that day. Then it was time to go to bed!

Yes I was wondering why anybody would hanker for the academic life!! When I started the workload was manageable and the pay was good. Now the workload is out of sight and overloaded with administration. I could get paid more in occupational therapy practice and go home at the end of the day and not ...

One half of the Stanleys (Mrs S) can speak from both sides. I completed my Masters in Health Science (Occupational Therapy) by distance in 1995 then had a break before starting the PhD. That was conferred 12 months ago after 7 long years but well worth the effort to become Dr S. I am an academic and...
