This is not about nightcaching ... but it's still important. I am going to participate at Run Melbourne and I am fundraising for Big Brothers Big Sisters. My aim is to run 10km with more or less of training (at the moment: none) and raise 1000 AUD

You can support me and donate at :o) If you donate more than 100 AUD I'll throw in a nightcaching Australia geocoin for you. Please contact me if you do so!

Now you might say "Wait a minute. What is this Big Brothers Big Sisters about?" Well that's a fair question. Why should you spend any money on a charity you don't even know about. Well here is what they are:

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a Not-For-Profit that matched adult volunteer mentors with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people. They target the children who need us most, including those living in single parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration. Starting something begins with finding a great match between a Big and a Little. Making these matches, and performing all the background work involved with them, is possible because of donations from people like you. It's also why we're able to offer such a wide variety of programs that pair children, ages 6 through 18, with role models in one-to-one relationships.

If you want to know more visit (and no: I don't know why there is a flying milk carton on their website).

Thanks and keep the coins coming

Map Update

Finally. I updated the nightcaching maps and got rid of this nasty bug which placed the icons too far north. So far the old Groundspeak maps are still working so here is the direct link to the PQ-map as well.
And don't forget to mail me about new nightcaches so I can put them on the bookmark list :o)
