I at least owe you a [insert beverage of choice here]! Thanks!

I at least owe you a [Yep...Guinness would be fine]! Thanks!

Hehe......but seeing as I still have it in my possession, I will start taking bids.
Anyway, with the problems there have been with Tbugs in some caches, I would prefer to meet whatsagps at a cache site or something to make the trade. Plenty of time left, so I don't think we're rushed.

I guess it doesn't matter whatsagps. Maybe a cache neither of has been to yet would be ok. If you like, pick one and we can make arrangements to meet there.

Yup, no problem. I'm just glad to get it to go someplace unique!

THANKS!

We were in Ireland in October and were able to find a few caches. We did notice that most of the regular caches seemed to be away from the areas where most travelers would go. We didn't have much time there and we had a pretty full itinerary so we couldn't go very far out of our way for a cache.

There were a couple regular caches along the way that we tried to get that ended up disappearing before we got to them. One we did find was Ninestar006 (GCGAH6) in Killarney, it is right in the middle of town, an easy walk from about 850 pubs and is a container plenty big for most bugs. It seems to get quite a bit of activity in the summer but very little during the winter (we dropped a bug we own there and it didn't move for over 2 months). The thing that worried us about it is that it is hidden in a small church yard and would very easilly be found by someone doing any sort of maintenance to the church.

The rest of the caches we found were all virtual and there are plenty of those around Dublin, Blarney Castle, etc.

We're back....and it was a very wonderful and crazy trip.....and even though we were time pressed...I made sure to make a trip for a cache...I placed all 3 TB's in a cache called The Phoenix GC44C5......and Sui....you'll be happy to know your's was already picked up again and is moving....but being as I didn't get in until late last night and I spent today at the WCHA hockey games..I need to go nurse my jet lag now.....I'll fill you all in on the trip at a later date. Take care.
