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?
Make some frog art, I'd like to see that :P

Hmmm... very tempting!

I must admit, it was very difficult for me last week. I was over in Perth, so wasn't able to head out for a midnight frog-napping run. I did check the site at 9pm (Perth time) when they were all listed, but none were anywhere near the Perth CBD area, so instead I had to settle back and watch the Melbourne FTF's all get taken.

It's good to be home, surrounded by frogs (although the family are telling me to get rid of all of those damn frogs out of the living room).

We seem to have 10 in the house tonight! (Perth)

Only drove 178km South to pick up 6 today then of course had to drive same 178km North to get home!

no frog blindness, but maybe frog insanity! ](*,) :frog :frogette

Yesterday I ended up with 6 frogs. I put three in town and brought the rest home. I logged them at home coordinates intending for Greenish to take them over.

Not five minutes later theres a woman in my front yard with a GPSr.

And thats how I met Makky Brown lol

petan wrote:There is a frog in Lismore GA3731 - In the Night Garden. His party trick is that he glows in the dark, although we were seeking during the day. We thought we'd made a reasonable search of GZ but were worried that he might have been muggled in between being moved here and our searching so we posted a DNF.

Renroc, who moved him, to this spot checked later that evening and sent me a message with images of a glowing frog and his hiding place - just the other side of the bush where we were looking.

So CraigRat.. I feel your pain.

Actually Petan, In the Night Garden consists of :frog :frog :frog 3 glowing frogs... NOT one but 3!!!!!!!! :frog :frog :frog However, the glowing that was visible in the photo I sent you was due to my torch. They had been too well concealed from the sun during the day and had not recharged or.... by the time in the evening I was back looking for them they had partied so hard that they were worn out and sleeping. I didn't reach in and disturb them.

My concern for frogs is that they seem to be following the very bad example set by the gnomes last year and partying all night when they are near each other. I was horrified when my lovely ladylike :frogette Fiona Longlegs was part of a drunken night once she got to Queensland.
Steve :frog and Goldie :frogette didn't party but they will be seperated tonight when they are released again.

Is seeing double :frog :frog a version of this new vision problem? I brought home 2 :frog :frog this evening who are definately closely related... AND when I put them on my desk while logging I realised that Steve :frog is actually an identical twin of one :frog I purchased for the race but loved so much I didn't want to part with. I took photos of them together. I know Steve's owner and Steve came from a totally different location to my :frog .

ON NO Petan did you read this message?? CraigRat please put your 3 :frog :frog :frog and solar panel somewhere on the Gold Coast for Petan to test her cache blindness on... This sounds very similar to In The Night Garden. :twisted:

Had my first DNF's on Frogs today, funny how you spend more time looking for a DNF than getting a find. Just have to make sure I guess... :frogette

Don't you have work to do??? Although looking at all the frogs that seem to have turned up in Tassie, I can see that it's pretty well a full time job just finding and logging them all :frogette =D> :frogette

Try sorting the ladder by number of stops - Tasmanian frogs occupy the top 8 positions, and the 3 highest NSW frogs are in the ACT being moved, us NSWers must be a little less um mobile
