Re: What's new on Geocaching Australia

Interesting. Good to know who the team is! Has the election for 2017 just gone then? Because on the volunteers page it mentions that senators are elected in June or July... Also, are there any other positions open on staff at the moment, just out of interest? And if so, how are those positions gener...

Re: Hunting Time

I don't know how many you have found (I will hazard a guess of not many if you need to ask the question - in no way meaning to be impolite). Oh yeah. So far I've managed to find one whole cache! So I'm very much a n00b at this. :P And that was an easy one too, just a tube under a rock. With one of ...

Hunting Time

How long does it take you guys to find the average traditional cache? I ask because I spent half an hour at each of two different sites looking for the cache at each site today and I was kinda thinking I should have found them by then if they were there... What do you guys think? They were both trad...

Re: So where/how do you draw the line re safety?

I have made a full recovery from my stroke, Glad to hear it, Mark! G'day Furrhan, Some good advice in your post! Thanks for that biggles/Mark! Gloves are often dictated in suburban caching due to the possible presence of both broken glass and needles. I wear leather "Riggers" gloves. They are aroun...

Your First Cache

So who remembers finding your first cache? Where was it? How was the experience? I found my first cache on Tuesday afternoon. It was one from... That other website, but don't tell anyone! I was with two friends, one a trusted muggle and one a cacher, and I was the one to find it. It was like a fat t...

Re: So where/how do you draw the line re safety?

So what kinds of gloves do you guys wear then? Gardening gloves or thick rubber gloves or disposable when it's just the yuk factor or what? To better the mirror idea, occasionally you'll see sales on simple inspection cameras. You mean like those on the flexible cables with the screen in your hand? ...

Re: So where/how do you draw the line re safety?

Some suburban hides might have the yuk factor. I can think of a couple in Canberra (one belonging to me :roll:). They are behind cafes, bars (and the surrounds that creates in the back alley) and the like, out with the bins. Greasy places with the yuk factor. I wear a glove when checking my cache. ...

Re: So where/how do you draw the line re safety?

Sometimes I wear gloves, but this is often only for the yuck factor; The yuk factor? What kinds of places do people hide these things??? Or are you just not a fan of mud? Which would be equally understandable in my book especially if you want to keep your GPS/pen/camera clean. I don't like to stick...

Re: So where/how do you draw the line re safety?

So, as a new geocacher, the story in the OP post in this thread got me thinking. He mentioned that he found some needles while he was searching. How many of you wear gloves or use a pole or stick to poke under things to protect your hands while searching? What other supplies might be needed to do th...

Re: Where are we all from??? (introduce yourself) parts 1&2

Hi, all! I'm a 25 year old guy from Tasmania, currently living in Hobart, who's decided to take up Geocaching as a way to get out of the house and get a bit of fitness. I've never done it before but by all accounts it sounds like fun so I'm looking forward to getting started! I'm currently studying ...
