Title: Welcome to the new home of Cotswold Caching

Welcome to the new home of Cotswold Caching

I started the original forum (http://cotswoldcaching.boards.net) in 2012 when I was most actively partaking in Geocaching and getting into other types of caching. The group grew steadily over the next couple of years, mostly with members from in or near the Cotswolds, but also attracting some from much further away due to the non-Geocaching.com cache discussions on the board. A number of Cotswold Caching events took place locally hosted by members, some in lovely Cotswold pubs, otheres in or near interesting and terrain 5 locations.

Over the past couple of years a lot of my limited spare time has been taken up with other projects, and the administration of the old forum has been neglected. I have steadily continued to TerraCache, but with more time returning to me now I am keen to get back into caching of all types and help promote them again. What I do not have time for, is to administer a board, or fix up the old one, that is where this new home comes in.

CacheWalker is an established caching forum, and was even way before Cotswold Caching was started. Many members here are local to the Cotswolds, and as a number were members at Cotswold Caching too it made sense to put them together.

I intend this new Cotswold Caching to be primarily a section to promote quality Geocaching in all its forms and other GPS based games. If original members wanted to arrange Cotswold Caching specific events, this would be the place to do that too. All other general discussions about Geocaching, walks, and off topic discussions should take place in the relevant sections of the main CacheWalker board (http://cachewalker.createaforum.com/index.php?action=forum).

Thank you,
Neal (Gackt)

Still going but this month was fast running out.

Went for two caches on the 22nd over Evesham way, at the first I met the FTF cacher coming back as I got out of my car :( Back in the car to the other one but this time a blank log :)

I wondered if a certain other person had shot out to get them, especially as I know it takes me about 30mins to get over there but was getting a bit close to the end of the month  :o

Been very few new local caches to me published this month. The closest was when there was a major Internet outage in our area, no broadband or mobile signal and only saw the cache after it had already been found :(
