After all the fun with the Locationless caches we've been doing for the 2020 Game of Games during April May & June, it's time to head outside again. Yep, with a lot of COVID-19 restrictions starting to lift, it will be great to be outdoors again finding and hiding caches.

To qualify for the July 2020 Game of Games draw you will need to complete the following:

Hide and publish a special geocache.

Geocache must be a Gadget or Podcache.

The hidden date must be in the game month.

The published date must be in the game month.

So get thinking and get those caches ready. It all kicks of in 15 days....

:D :D :D :D

Got my badge today as well, thanks. Being about 20km north of tronador and further from Melbourne it must take longer :P

With the appalling way that Australia Post handles mail nowadays I'm surprised they are getting there this fast. I'm not happy with letter delivery (or the price), but as it's a government mandated monopoly, we have no consumer choice on letters.

I haven't had too many delays on domestic things, 2 days from Adelaide to Sydney last week for a small-medium box. Though I am still waiting for something small I ordered from China off eBay in late March to show up. Then again in the past I have had letters regularly take over a week to get to me from the southern side of Sydney to the north. Could walk it quicker with a broken leg.

With the badge I just figured the carrier pigeon needed an overnight stop sometime between tronador and me :D

I literally just had a great (not) experience with the postie who I saw pull up out front of the house. He pulled a couple of large envelopes out so I went outside to take them from him. He was just "signing our surname" for a "registered post" item before he was going to drop them in the letter box. Contents? Our new passports. Too bad if they ended up being stolen from the letterbox as "we have your signature". No use complaining, but I probably will anyway.

Hmmm, not good. I would probably mention it to DFAT as well.

Similarly a few years ago I had an expensive camera lens being delivered to work that was supposed to be signed for. I found it in the open letterbox at the front of the driveway.
