January’s weather in Wales

Our weather station has now been up and running for over a year so I can start comparing stats. I’ve been looking today at the January’s weather stats from 2006 vs 2007…. Now obviously 2 data points can’t in anyway form a trend and with my geological background I’m always moaning at ‘weather experts’ for...

Geocaching Stats

I’ve just been playing around with a site called itsnotaboutthenumbers.com that allows you to upload you geocaching finds to it and then displays a whole load of stats about your finds, where you’ve found caches, difficulty ratings etc etc….

Aber-cachers.co.uk will be a comminuty site where local and visiting geocachers can plan trips, ask for advice and generally get to know each other. As well as covering...

It seems like ages ago that Anna and I first met… I guess it is quite a while, but one of the first places we went together was Dolgoch Falls. Under slightly strange circumstances we met a group of ‘hippies’ there for a party around a camp fire and slept out under the stars. It...

We’ve had a pretty wet and windy spell here in West Wales recently. There have been quite few days with wind gusts exceeding 50 knots, but so far the winter has been pretty mild. Temperatures have been above average and I can’t remember when we last had a frost. It even looked as though spring...

Four New Geocaches – Watery Wales

The recreation ranger from the Forestry Commission has given me permission to hide some new geocaches so I’ve hidden them and published the cache logs at geocaching.com. They form the Watery Wales series which is a series of caches on the banks of lakes and streams in the Welsh Hills. Most are pretty easy to...

Holiday planning

Well, it looks like we will definately be going now.  I’ve booked a B&B on Arran for 2 nights and a cottage for us all in Port Charlotte on Islay.  Mingulay B&B looks nice and friendly and I’m sure we’ll update you when we come back.  The cottage on Islay looks perfect for what we...
