So, are there any official Wilddog geocaches anywhere? Having heard about it the first time this weekend it sounds like good fun...................

It's been suggested a couple of times
but no one ever seem interested

I can only speak for myself but riding a hundred kays to find a particular rock underneath which is a icecream tub containing a wet notebook and a snot smeared toy gets old real quick.
It's not for everyone...it's not for me

I must agree with LuckyStriker. I participated once... It is fun reading the GPS... for the first months or so after buying it. How many times do you want to go through the same routine? The pub routine sounds like a lot of fun though.

Perhaps if one gave cryptic clues to work out the coordinates, then gave away a free 6-pack or something to the first guy that arrived at the correct pub..................or something along those lines...........

I'm keen to hide one in De wildt somewhere.
Somewhere its hard to get too, even if the GPS bit is so simple.
