    I shudder to think what 153 individual, unique, rubber stamps would cost......

    Not small caches either, all regulars at a quick look.

    Tony, you missed two - there are 155 of them...! And all of them published yesterday, and all the ones I've looked at were published by Carol - Alba15 - she must have had quite a day of it...! :socool:

    OK, I can't count

    Not that far from me, though I don't think the dog would appreciate being dragged around there in this weather.

    Blimey, all within 25m of home and not one notification EMail - methinks I don't have letterbox hybrids enabled

    I think I've just found out what to do with my forthcoming week's holiday!

    Seems to be a problem with emails from Groundspeak...
    Lots of questions around the forums about PQ's and notifications (cache finds, TB moves etc) not being recieved.
    I have a Geocaching problem...

    Yes she made a sterling effort unlike the person who reviewed this one

    Sorry dave could'nt resist !

    i like the logging requirement of saving the better logs for a few caches, we always struggle with just how to handle the logs on these power trails

    nb my notifiactions are a day late

    Being the owner of a trail I really don't mind someone doing them all and just putting one proper log at the end.

    What does (mongers reminds himself to be polite) irritate is when people go and do one cache and all they can do is TFTC not even bothering to type the words. Like i say if you have done a few of a series fair enough do a short log for most even TFTC but then a little longer log at least to tell people about your experience of the series even if it is not a good experience.

    Ok, fair enough the cache may not be great and i have once used that where I really thought it was far politer than what i was thinking.

    At the end of the day most caches are placed at someone's time and expense (even the not nice ones).

    Agreed, and perhaps we're a bit too British about it by being polite, so we get what we deserve.
    Although I know what the reaction would be from some if you even logged something as polite as "not my type of cache".
    There's a phrase you can use which is supposed to indicate that the cache is rubbish without actually saying so, but I forget what it is.

    No, I can't remember that phrase either, but I rather think it might be French. Any ideas, anyone?

    OK a quick search gave me

    Excellent: can't wait to use it. Anyone know of a handy rubbish cache (bearing in mind there are none on the IOM )?.

    Ah, that's it - thanks Tony! I thought it had some fishy connection - well, close, I suppose!

    Yep, DPM's the term to use!

    Quick factoid, this series now makes up one third of all active Letterbox Hybrids in the UK!

    Brilliant. I've copied onto the PPC so it'll be handy when I need it.

    Just in case the letterbox cache placer is watching, be reassured that we're not inferring anything about the new series. It looks amazing!

    Reading the pages it does sound like a good series

    No point in looking in the local supermarkets for cache containers then, eh?

    Looks like a really good series!
    I'm just going outside, and may be some time!

    I believe the series has now been expanded by a couple of caches.

    Doubt you would find some of these containers in the supermarket knowing what they were originally made for.

    Can't believe our luck, we'd already booked a February half-term break in that area. We'll certainly not be short of some caching to do now! Can't wait to tackle some of them ... especially as we're we're snowed in down here in Wiltshire and can't get out caching at the moment.

    Done quite a few last weekend, and it's no power trail - some cracking views and terrain, but it's no walk in the park!!

    I've done a load of them - had a fab day with a great bunch of people! Can't wait to knock some more off but not sure when I am up there next.

    I did 39 caches on this trail today, mostly part of the series but a few others thrown in along the way.

    A good varied walk, along the side of reservoirs, through the woods, over the moors and up bloomin big hills. A cracker of a walk and not a bad cache in them. All capable of standing alone as good caches.

    Well worth doing.
