Good Stuff! Have you got good Topographical maps of the region?

In reference to comment a couple of posts ago...

Oh dear you must be in real financial hardships if you do not realise what "pretty yellow, red and blue paper" are. The Americans have it easier - it is all green.

But you were right in a way. I was thinking of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy when I wrote it. The introduction to one (or more) of the book when it says..

"This planet has—or rather had—a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy."

Green paper being money.

Would you like to borrow a tenner?

Of course, the coloured bits of paper, how silly of me! I'm hardly in financial hardship; who uses those bits of paper anymore?? I use my little blue piece of plastic! :)

I don't have topographical maps, I use maps.google.com, their satelite imagery is very good :) Gives an excellent if of what I'm in for before I set off :)

So, geocaching is...WHAT?

I assume it's navigating around trying to find a hidden treasure or location or something?

Whatever it is, WAY TO GO GIRL!

Glad you had fun...and that you're feeling happier. So can we expect you to be running for election anytime soon?

WW - you're pretty much spot on. Geocaching... person A hides something, puts coordinates online, person B finds it. More or less :) see http://www.geocaching.com
