This weekend marked the first GeoCaching event that I’ve been to. “To Cache a Kippa” was held at the Keele University KPA and they placed ten new caches around the campus that we got a few first-to-finds on. It was really nice to meet fellow cachers and share stories about being out caching. We have met a few other local cachers while being out like Mick and Mandy. I also speak to a few cachers quite often and it was nice to be able to put faces to names on Saturday evening.
Of the caches that were placed around the campus, none were really difficult to find and as I said – we managed to get three first to finds. We ended up with quite a large group of about twenty cachers with us that we let on a merry dance around Keele woodland. Hopefully a lot of other people visited my library cache down there and took some books from it. I did drop a few BookCrossing books at the KPA too, which were Jeremy Clarkson, Have I Got News For You and Football, etc.
The only other caching we did this weekend was in Eccleshall where we completed “The Eccleshall Tour”. Nothing particularly of interest here but it was a nice couple of hours out on a pleasant autumn evening.
I’ve added a few new pieces of code in to my GitHub repositories. I’m currently working on the FourSquare automation script. I’m also putting together a class to interact with the Prowl push API. It will provide PHP applications with the ability to push notifications from their apps/sites quite easily. There is also a few other bits and pieces. I’m also looking at forking Chirrup and moving it on to support both the streaming API and OAuth too.
