With some modification this could work very well. But don't ask me to modify it coz I don't hold any qualifications in that skill set.

Nice effort for an Aussie to make it into the top 25 munzee hunters.
Go Geoff :D :D :D
Gee I'm 1 point away from level 3 and I am happy. I did notice gmj up there though. Well done. There are now 19 munzees in our local area. It doubled today. =D>

Re: Munzees!

The idea was conceived as a commercial notion, never been a secret. At the moment I am more worried about how they treat the community, not if they turn a dollar or not... and so far, the guys have been excellent. I'm afraid I have not had an excellent connection with them at all Zal. As stated on ...

Re: Munzees!

Found where the munzees were. One on my way to work this morning. Captured it and have a score of 5 on the phone. BUT when I tr...

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2011/2012

What about mushrooms toadstools and fairies. This would sort of extend the gnome theme and kids tend to love these things. OR perhaps pirates or treasure chests. Witches on broomsticks.. To pick up on Harry Potter theme! I do think zombies may be a little scarey for some of our younger cachers.

Re: GeGnome Project - Photos and fun

Hello fellow gnome nappers and friends. My poor little Jiggly Jones has been at his current location S36° 49.917' E143° 53.240' for far too long. If he doesn't move soon he will no longer be able to jiggle. He is near Laancorie not too far from Bendigo. I would love it if someone could go and find h...

Re: Dessicant crystals

Thanks for the info about the shoe stores. I have tried to buy some for my photocopy paper container at school. Now I will just hit the shoe shop for something other than shoes which will be a little novel!

Re: Google Streetview updated at last!

Just checked and the image has been scrambled so the writing on the sign is no longer readable at all. Well done Google. Under 24hours to change it.

Re: Google Streetview updated at last!

Shouldn't be hard to work out when my area was done. Is this a Google privacy slip up or what? I won't name the High School here but it is clearly visible on the sign. Looks like it was this year too by the date on the bottom of the image. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Sutton+Forest+New+South+Wales...
