It's Oh So Quiet

It's Oh So Quiet

It has been another cacheless week! There have been a couple of days when we have got up and planned to go caching this week. On both days other more pressing things (work) cropped up! Yesterday we spent the day baking for the Country Market, so that was another opportunity out of the window.


Ebay has also been quiet this week, the current economic climate worldwide certainly seems to be hitting sales, September was the worst month, sales wise, that I have had since I opened the Jacaru Geocoins shop. Hopefully things will pick up on the run up to Christmas. I have some new stock, including stocking fillers arriving soon. I also have some new signs that will be in the shop from the middle of next week. These make excellent caches and I have a couple of them out and about. It is fun reading the logs for these caches as people do sometimes struggle with them, especially as they are usually placed in high muggle areas! The photo above shows how one design looks. They are magnetic and come complete with a log book in a sealed bag.

Only a couple of weeks now until we are in Barrow and caching can once again become a priority for a few days at least.

More news next week, until then...............Happy caching.

New Coins On Ebay

Well it has been another week without finding any caches. We don't seem to have stopped, travelling up to Warrington to visit Keith's Mum and then I went on to New Mills to see my son Cameron. Between all this we have been remapping and doing other bits and pieces that needed catching up on. The motorhome failed its MOT so needed a bit of work doing on it. It is booked in for a re-test on Friday so fingers crossed.

Barrow In Furness

I'm not sure what caching we will be able to do beforehand, but we are off for a few days break to Barrow In Furness on the 1st November. We have got one of the cheap Travelodge deals, a room for £9.00 a night so we are having four nights up there. Keiths son Tom is going with us as well. Having looked at what caches are in the area it looks ripe for doing a load, so hopefully we can make up for the last few weeks.


I have been out this afternoon to replace one of my caches that has been muggled. It was an excuse for a break from the daily grind and we got the dogs out for a walk as well. It was more like walking on a spring day by the canal, lots of midges out and a nice warm breeze. It seemed appropriate to drop off a DNF geocoin in the new cache as it hadn't been found for a couple of times.

So, for now that's it, no more news. Sorry this hasn't been the most exciting blog entry that I have written, maybe next week there will be more to tell.

For now, have a good week, and happy caching.

Normal Service Resumes Shortly!

Just to let people know, I haven't disappeared off the face of the Earth! Due to illness and a heavy workload, I haven't been caching over the last few weeks. Hence there hasn't been any updates on the blog. Hopefully over the next few days we will be back up and running and getting out there caching.

I am just about to update the Ebay shop as well, there will be some new cache containers and also some different coins up for sale. The new UK coin is selling well and  I am getting some good feedback about the design.
