For all you Geocachers

As any geocacher will know if you cannot maintain your cache it has to be archived.

Sadly we struggled to keep all of Steve's going as they were so intricate and complicated - typical Steve (and Cup!) to have caches that were so cryptic.

But we should not have worried because avid geocachers spire67 and Maxhench were determined to help us get them back up and running.

They are spending their time recreating the archived caches and putting them back on line in a tribute account called 'Celebrating Sven'

You can see the first of them here: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC40VDW

More to follow as they work to recreate them.

Big thanks to both of them for their hard work

Happy Caching!

Steve's Kawasaki

Sadly the time has come where Steve's bike must be sold, it has such a history to it as it featured in many of his YouTube videos, it will be a sad day to see it go.

Bywaydatabase - news

Great news on the bywaydatabase website, there was a risk the domain name would be lost as I could not find the details to transfer it, thus losing all links on that domain name. But thanks to the detective work of a lovely lady at Fast Host I have been able to it track down and get it transferred.

Work is still continuing to get the maps back up and working too.

Steve had some fantastic friends who are keen to get it working again in his memory. Thanks everyone.

Geocaching update

Some of Steve's geocaching friends are helping to get Steve and Nicole's geocaches, that had to be archived, back up and running.

It is a great idea as some of there were so cryptic and fun it would be a shame for them to be lost. Watch this space!

Big thank you to them. :-)

Steve's Stuff

Sadly we have reached the time where we have no choice but to sell Steve's bikes.

Proceeds will go to Steve's estate and it was Steve's last wish that the final proceeds would be put in trust for his children.

Greenlaning

Steve was very keen on greenlaning and had put together videos and route maps of many in East Sussex on his www.qwerf.com/greenlaning website.

I am working to keep the website going as I think it is important information that Steve would want his friends to still access.

I wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of one of his good friends Griff, he's been a star!

Hopefully it is working ok but if you do encounter problems do let me know.

Geocaching in memory of Sven

We had a lovely afternoon yesterday following in Steve's footsteps as we did the Mapperley Park Series geocaches, with Chris, Anitra and George.

Steve did this with Nicole (cup) and I seem to remember his battery ran out on the Sat Map and he texted us to say he was lost and they would be late for tea. Happy days.
