EPISODE 441 – MOGA 2016

Show Talking Points:

A bit about Jesse Tuttle

The history of Moga

Moga 2016 Details
-MOGA is the world’s largest, annual geocaching competition Mega Event. The event was based on orienteering meets, however competition is optional.

-Areas of competition include the classic “punch” competition, puzzles, with several new ones this year! Ally cat style bike competition, paddle caching competition using Wherigos, and a Disability course.

-Outside of the main competitions there are plenty of activities like: Gadget caching, night caches, Geo-Art, kid caches, poker run and more! It is also worth mentioning that the Freedom GeoTrail is nearby.

-The Geocoin for MOGA 2016 is a 2 inch, 3D sculpted Geocoin with a glow in the dark flame on the front side when gems around it. The award geocoin is an impressive 3 1/8th inch, 1/4lb 3D sculpted medal! Both designed by Christian Mackey.

-“Achiever’s at MOGA” will be the Friday night event where we will be the first event to honor geocaching challenges on such a large scale level. For all qualified attendees, we will be awarding them a 3D sculpted medal with Signal on the front for each of their achievements that we have selected. This is free! Currently we are set to give out nearly 500 medals.

-MOGA 2016 will also be kicking off one of the largest, if not the largest TB race in history with more than 500 participants. To participate you just need to register with any paid package.

-Thanks goes to: OKIC and MVG geocaching groups for their amazing support in building MOGA 2016. Clermont County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau for they dedication, partnership with AFK and sponsorship of MOGA.

GCPC EPISODE 439 – Geocaching Collectables – What is your geocaching collection like?

What items do you like to find in a geocache?
Do you trade swag?
What types of items do you collect?
Most unusual/expensive item found and how did you trade for it?
Examples
geocoins
pathtags
patches
pins
homemade
custom/signature items

HHH:
Likes anything shiney
Likes wooden nickels when found
Likes the unusual when found – Science Museum – Shark Tooth
Most unusual was a FTF gift of a Navy Sailor’s ship coin and medals.

SB:
patches on my caching bag
small group of pathtags
big group of coins
CS:

TAZ:
I love to find geocoins in caches
Travelbugs too.
Signature items of all kinds: Pathtags, Bottlecaps, Wooden Nickels, Geocaching business cards, …
Most unusual was probably a stick of chewing gum
I usually don’t swap for swag and only grab trackables and personal items which I don’t treat as swag.
That said, I keep some random swag items in my bag that one day could become attached to a TB, and I’ll swap them out.

Interactive maps & statistics for geocaching travelbugs, geocoins and all your trackable items…

GCPC EPISODE 437 – Stolen Geocaches – Why?

HHH:
The geotrash zinger zapper shows up every few years
Can’t understand the need to steal ammo box geocaches – saving for the zombie apocalypse?
Is the only replacement the micro? Then what?
Chaining down ammo boxes?

SB:
Its a shame and then we all wonder why there are no ammos out there. Was not muggled, bad apple cachers.
off topic. When checking on one, noticed that a high profile couple from WI replaced instead of logging a DNF. No wonder high numbers, they NEVER dnf a cache. Don’t just drop!

CS:

TAZ:
I know this past year in the Houston Area that Ammo can’s seemed to be coming up missing. I personally DNF’d several that turned out to be stolen ammo can’s. One was during international CITO day – luckily the cache owner was at the CITO.
If they’re in areas that are more publicly accessible, I’ve cabled the Ammo cans I’ve put out and used crimp connectors to make them more permanent. The one I didn’t do this to went floating down the Brazos River last May (only a few feet from cresting the levee)
Talking to folks at events, it seems that even cabled Ammo Cans were susceptible. People had been using bolt/wire cutters to cut the tethers and in one case snapped the small tree to get the Ammo can. Really people, go to a frigging Army Surplus store already.

Listener Insights:

Timothy – They want to hide them there self. This happened up here in NY. We finally got the person.

Debra – I have an ammo can out but it is right across the road from my house so maybe that will be a deterrent

GCPC EPISODE 432 – 2016 Geocaching Resolutions

2016 Resolutions

HHH:
The first half of the year was fun but the second half has been very rough year this year. Things should be looking up as soon as next week which will allow both myself and wife Amy get out more which means more geocaching.

Other geocaching goal hints:
Set actual numbers of which you want to achieve
Set achievements you never did before – get out there and explore
Try different aspects of geocaching you never did before – host an event, go for a different type of geocache type, take on a geocaching challenge.

SB: more finds than this year, my lowest year this year since 2010 (1600)
Hit 3 new states

CS:

TAZ:
Get back out active caching (once my knee heals up)
Get more familiar w/ my new local cachers
Cut my Open Jasmer’s in half (i.e. get Aug or Sept 2000 cache)
Cut my Alpha Numeric Challenge open in Half (need to find a cache with the owner that starts with 3 or 5)
Find at least half of the puzzles that I’ve solved in my new caching area.
