Re: Cache Sizes

There is a smaller-than-micro size container widely used called a nano (about the size of your thumbnail, usually magnetic). But it would be categorised as a micro on the GC.com cache page. Most considerate cache owners will mention if it is a nano in their description, but not all.

Re: MAPS Confusion

I find the OSM maps of Australian country areas to be quite patchy in detail. Some areas good, some bad depending if there is a keen OSM mapper in a region.

Re: potential cache site occupied

Possums have few enough tree hollows to use as homes (hence their propensity to use roof spaces). I suggest leave the hollow for the possum and find somewhere else for the cache - that's one less possum trying to get into someone's roof.

Roamin Gnome has escaped the Big Wet in Bundaberg, Qld and is presently drying out at Pt Noarlunga, SA. Go and say Hi to him if you're in the area.

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

Bundy, there's one in Townsville at present, so that's the most northerly. The next most northern one is my Roamin Gnome at Bundaberg, at least until your gnome joins the project. Tropical/sub-tropical Gnomes appear to be relatively scarce. I put it down to the fact that summer is not really gnome s...

Re: Cacher from Germany needs recommendations!

There is a great beach to see turtles laying eggs and turtle hatchlings at Mon Repos near Bundaberg, and some great caches nearby too! Turtle viewing is from October to March each year. October to January is mainly turtles laying eggs. At the end of the turtle season (February to end of March) it's ...
