Grrr!!!!!!!

"Using multi million dollar satellites to find eclipse tins".

After caching for over ten years it is really sad to note that the trend of placing small caches (without swaps) is increasing.

While nanos and eclipse tins sometimes have their place in an urban environment these, along with 200ml Sistemas, seem to be the norm these days even out in more remote areas.

Doesn't anyone want to place nice, large, kid friendly caches any more. ](*,)

That was a pretty good explanation of geocaching. I'm glad they found someone who hid decent caches too, not just found them. I think I'll refer friends to this video from now on to explain geocaching. :)

Which one? Kash (correct) or caysh (wrong).

No need for a flame retardant suit as far as I'm concerned!

Although I didn't think the program explained geocaching very well, it was a delight to hear the correct pronunciation of cache being used - except by the ABC presenter!

Sadly this issue of pronunciation in Oz is either a horse that's bolted or one that's been flogged to death, depending on your point of view, as many past threads will show . . .

"Kaysh" seems to be here to stay in Oz.
And before anyone says the correct pronunciation "cash" is American, ask anyone in the UK how they pronounce it - I have, and always got the answer "cash".
I have no idea why the incorrect "kaysh" became established here, other than by being promoted by this website.

What happened to the old adage of "...lunchbox in the bush"? It seems, sadly, micros and nano are the norm for so many new caches.
And as for nanos and micros in the bush, don't get me started.

I put the Kate's Hen House on my list (if we find the time when we are in Launceston). To bad about the spoiler being shown. It's a D1 now

So which do the Aussie geocachers think should be used by Aussies? I've started vlogging and am trying to retrain myself to pronounce it "cash" because I thought I was pronouncing it wrong for years. I'd be happy to represent Aussie "kayshing" if the majority of Aussie cachers think that is the way it should be.

So confusing ](*,)

Cache is pronounced kaysh as far as I am concerned.

We all know cash is money, and that is fine, so why confuse things by pronouncing cache the same way?
I have to admit the pronunciation in the Oxford dictionary is 'cash' and not 'caish'.
But I and Australians I have communicated with have almost all exclusively pronounced it 'caish'.
That is the pronunciation I like, and it eliminates confusion with cash which of course can be held in a 'caish', spelt cache of course.
That's my 5 cents worth on the topic!

I was introduced to the game by someone who pronounces it cash, but I pronounce it kaysh. This was way before I even knew of the Geocaching Australia website, so something inside me told me to pronounce it the way I do. The Australian pronunciation in kaysh, but no idea why it's different from the US and UK.

You guys realize you have an "accent" do you?
