is frog blindness when you drive right past the crash barrier? (oops #-o )

And then you spend a good 5mins looking at said crash barrier for the frog?

If so, i'm joining the club!

Share your tales of woe here!

I had one turn up 400m from my house and 3 visits later could not find it, but then today it got pounced on by Tassie Trekkers and they found it really quickly :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
Anything smaller than a lunchbox seems to be kryptonite to me!
In an effort to help, CraigRat. I've just placed three frogs, all within walking distance for you. One is under a certain bridge that you spent the weekend examining. It's big and green!
The best bit is that Tassie Trekkers can't get them, for at least one more move!!

They seek them here, they seek them there,
They seek those frogs everywhere.
If they were in heaven,
or if they were in hell,
those Trekkers would hunt them there as well!

I don't have :frog :frogette blindness, but it seems that my close caching and buddies and even my mother do :shock: :shock:

pwags is really busy with life at the moment. I think he might be available in a couple of weeks, then watch out for the frognapping antics.

I've just been signing the logbooks - your name appears in them all, c@w!

I have to say, that was the easiest and quickest ten smileys I've ever got. Ten caches in only two locations.

I'm considering a frog power trail, or maybe something else?

Next cache race we need to have QR codes stuck on em

(I've got the libraries, playing with something right now)
Seems like a great idea!
