G2G7 Geocachers - Do you want to be friends!

Hi,

Just a quick thread for the geocachers at G2G7 & any others there are out there! If you want to be able to have "Friends" on the Geocaching Website you need to do the following:

Log into geocaching.com, and click on your name at the top right of the page. Then click on Your Account Details. Near the bottom, in the box labeled Your Preferences, click on Change. Make sure the box is checked next to Allow friend Requests. Click on Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
The default setting is to NOT allow friend requests. I was going to try & "make friends" with you all, but can't send the requests though!

Hope this is helpful, it took me ages to find out why I couldn't send the request, so hopefully this should save you the bother.

(And I'm still cross I missed the walk, even if I did get badges sewn on :( )

I'm registered on there, but have yet to find any caches. I'd wanted to go with someone who knew what they were doing, but didn't knw you'd all gone on Saturday since there was no time for it announced.

I can't remember my username, but it's likely to be jennthefunkyranger

Jenn - if you want to meet up for a walk at some point, we could also do some geocaching.

I geocache (as a family) under the name Nottingham Nutters. As it's a family account, I won't change the settings so you can be friends - after all, you've not met the rest of the family!

Ah, thanks for that Clare! I was wondering why I couldn't add Yorkie and others as friends!

I'm scotchmi5t (how original!) :)
I'm just about to add you but can't because I've got this message "I'm sorry, this user is not currently accepting friend requests.".....

so far only got Figgy!

Figgy has found me, but I'm also having problems getting it to accept others. I've now changed mine so I can accept requests.

KB - good idea! Though I need new walking boots first

Sorry I couldn't come, but I did get our first 5/5 (and sunburnt) on Sunday up Mount Keen (GC278N9). We're on there as dinkythedragonriders if anyone wants to find us :)
Did you all sign one cache, that's an easier way of finding you...

I'm heathfarm on geocaching, which is something that hubby and me started in 2008, we're up to over 200 I think now.... I love geocaching. Only been able to do the buggy friendly ones recently though! I wasn't at G2G7 though, can I still be friends?
