    Default Geocaching on BBC Breakfast - Sat 29th Jan

    From twitter a little earlier: @mikebreakfast "there are 75000 of them, they get people shouting in the undergrowth, they get kids out at the weekend..will reveal all on breakfast tomorro" - BBC Breakfast's Mike Bushell was filming with a gaggle of kids up on Coombe Hill a couple of Sundays ago so expect to see England's oldest cache (GC171) featured, along with a few cachers who joined in with the hunting. For those who miss it, there will be an iPlayer link along I'm sure

    You can find out here, thanks to Sue of thegoughs who added a note to the cache she hid with Mike: BBC site video http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-12307628 or YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2ybSDOcExU

    It's a good article, well done to those involved. Hopefully we won't get too many underwater caches, they seldom last!

    I watched the live version and he gave the number quickly. I think he said that its GC2NG0M. (0 is zero). That one is currently unpublished.

    I just turned on the news just in time to catch the final shot of him re-hiding the cache! Oh well it's rolling news so it'll be along again in a hour or so.

    When I go online of a morning I usually have fifteen or twenty emails waiting for me, and a handful of those are notifications of new GAGB forum users and new members joining GAGB.

    This morning there were eighty-five emails, and the extra ones were notifications of new forum users and new members...

    Says it all, really!

    Probably 60 or 70 were GAGB new Member or new User notifications (I didn't count them), but that's a whole lot more than the usual handful...!

    We watched it on youtube, I think it is an excellent introduction to our hobby. We placed the Bucks A-Z Series along with a couple of others and we have had 4 logs today from newbies! This could bode very well for us all!
