It’s been a while since I wrote, but I’ll quickly cover a few things:
1) Great show last week. If you put it out, you are responsible for it! If you can’t take care of it, take it down. Who cares how many caches you’ve hidden if they’re nothing but geotrash. I’m much more impressed with quality, not quantity.

2) Planning a geocache route: Cachetur.no! I’ve been playing and planning with it for several weeks now. Super easy, let’s you break down trips in a variety of ways, routes your caches to the most efficient path or drive, and it’s FREE! I’ve worked with Thomas the developer on a couple of issues and enhancements, and as Nic really does a great job with Cachly, so does Thomas with Cachetur. Check it out!

3) Can we somehow balance Sarah better? Each week I struggle with hearing her. I get the volume up so that she comes through clear, and then you guys blast me out of the car! I love her perspective and wish I had a consistent volume for all of you.

That’s it. Thanks for the show.

GCPC EPISODE 523 – Geocaching Story Time

Story ideas:
Scott
Jessie almost dying in a preserve
Scott falling out of a tree
Cacher passing out from Allergies in my car
Eating Bulls balls with Joshua at a Nebraska Mega
Having a gun in my face
Funniest geocache
Most Impressive Geocache
Geocache adventures
Weather geocaching experiences
Most unusual geocache
Bucket List Geocache
Reminisce Geocaching of the Past
Most ironic geocaching situation
INFO: From my other half 2 days ago…
For Sarah: There is a geocache in the tree just out of shot to the left foreground. Tao Dan Park.
Geocaching Junk. What is in your closet, car, etc.
Favorite geocaching item you no longer use.

TAZ427:
Almost being eaten by a snake twice on one day, and falling off a log while crossing over a bayou in February (the good thing was that there was a copperhead on the other end of the log that didn’t eat me.) Later was the encounter w/ a cottonmouth. And finally other cachers posting video’s of me on Facebook falling into the Bayou.
This past Sunday at Foresthill Bridge (740’ drop from road level to the American River below) grabbed a couple caches with my wife while my Son road his bike down the trails. It was supposed to be a 2.5 terrain, but turned into a 4.0T and that didn’t go over very well with my better half.
Man on horse w/ six-shooter telling me that I’m on his property…
Small tree on eroding edge of hill doesn’t exactly work out for a handhold

Hi Guys (and InfoFerret),

My family and I are planning a trip to South Korea soon to visit a daughter who is over there teaching English. While not looking forward to the 14-hour nonstop flight, I am looking forward to finding my first cache in a new country that will also be my first cache in Asia and my first find in the eastern hemisphere.

One of the side trips we are taking will be to the DMZ (demilitarized zone) between North and South Korea. At the Joint Security Area (see link at https://ramblingwombat.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/the-joint-security-area-meeting-rooms/), there are several buildings that straddle the border. On a tour (military escort required), it is possible to go into one of these buildings, a conference room, and actually walk over to the North Korean side and have your picture taken! (What ever you do, don’t walk out that back door by mistake!)

Okay, here’s the deal. North Korea doesn’t have a cache. And I don’t have a virtual reward to place, nor do I know anyone who does. But if someone wants to contribute their virtual reward, I will provide all the needed info and coords on one condition: I get to log it.

So if you have a virtual reward to contribute to what should prove to be a historic cache, you can message me through geocaching.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.

GCPC EPISODE 522 – Geocaching CO Expectations and Responsibilities

Infoferret gets her ‘Ranty pants’ on…
Whilst on holiday I logged a DNF (not a found it log) and as I was the 3rd person to DNF it, also a NM on one of this guy’s caches.
This was the e-mail response…I’ve deleted the details of the CO and the specific cache.
Hi
You recently logged a visit on one of our caches. Thanks for visiting
You also logged a “needs maintenance” log. This is to let you know we have done the miles and the result.
As part of our response, we choose to send this standard email to all authors of “needs maintenance” logs. We do not look for a reply.
This email signals the cache is now fixed.
We filter all DNF and “wet” logs for checking, a bookmark link is on effected cache page until fixed (we don’t need the extra log)..
Your “Found” log is deleted because log not signed.
We happily maintain our caches, to date; we have done over 1100 recorded maintenance visits of our own caches.
A long trip for you to get here? Probably is for the cache owner too We take the opportunity to suggest you consider do as many other players, being “Johnny on the spot”, and while not a requisite, why not contribute to the game and look at doing a fix. Because we own 1000+ caches, we appreciate all the help we get.
We are finding 75% of these we check, either did not really require our visit or have already been fixed by other cachers We say this on behalf of all cache owners. Besides the costs and frustration to cache owners, this also enhances the experience of fellow cache finders to follow.
We hope you were able to enjoy some of our caches.
Travel and cache safely.
Cheers

Hi guys!

I’ve been into Geocaching for just a short time (2014) and thoroughly enjoy the game. We live in Northeastern Nevada and I have been trying to get more people interested in the game, but to no avail. Some people that I’ve talked with have tried it years ago and had forgotten about it and others haven’t heard about it, get excited about it when talking to them, yet I never see them again. We’ve hosted several meet and greets, as well as numerous CITO events, but the number of attendees has sharply dropped off to the point that we canceled the last CITO due to lack of people. My wife and I were the only ones that were going to be there. :( I guess my question is, how do I get more people interested in the game? The big thing around here now is the painted rocks that people hide in plain sight and are randomly found. I would think that there is a strong probability that the two hobbies would be very complimentary each other, yet I can’t find the interest for Geocaching. Any ideas? I’ll try to be in the chat room Wednesday night.
Thanks,
Bruce Cosens aka Team Dastardly

I am a relatively new listener to GCPC. I started listening about the same time as Sarah started hosting. A visit to New Zealand is one of my dreams and meeting her is person would be icing on the cake if I ever get a chance to fulfill that dream. I don’t get a chance to listen to the live taping because of other obligations I have on Wed. evening, but watching to the YouTube video on Thursday morning is something I look forward to every week.

In show 520 there was a lot of discussion about food. I especially enjoyed the part about British cuisine. It brought back lots of memories of the 18 months I spent in Scotland and England. The two foods I really fell in love with and miss are fish and chips, and English tea. What we have here in the U.S. that is supposed to be British fish and chips and tea just isn’t the same. Kind of like going to Taco Bell for Mexican food. Unfortunately I somehow missed trying mushy peas. I did however try haggis as I was in Scotland most of the time and it is sold in the same shops that sell fish and chips. Not my favorite, especially after I found out what it is made from.

Love the show and especially the informal style. Hope to see you at GeoWoodstock. I’ll be there as I live just across the river. Can’t miss the first U.S. Giga!

Yay Scott’s got mail! So I didn’t get a chance to go geocaching on Christmas due to family commitments and having cashed out my area, but I started a new tradition this year playing another location-based game while en route from one destination to another…. Almost equally as fun…

Are you ready for it? Wait for it…

PokeJew!

*Ding ding*

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and happy holidays to the gcpc crew!
