Rebecca emailed and asked us to do a show on the low cost benefits of geocaching. She said, “What I like most about it is you really can have awesome geocaching adventures for very little cost if not free and you can make decent low cost hides too. How about the best way to low cost geocache for those who can’t afford an expensive gpsr etc. We personally do have a gpsr as we like to go on country walks but as we all know it can be done with a smartphone instead or just the internet if you work out your info first.” So we take this episode and answer Rebecca’s question.

On this episode we respond to a listener question from scoddule. They ask “Geocaching.com is fantastic, but it lacks a community-of-cachers feature. Around my area there are some keen cachers that I am beginning to get to know through events etc, but it would be really nice to have a chat area that we could all subscribe to. Is this something that you do either on or off gc.com? What is the best way to foster local community online in a way that new people can still find out about the group and join in?”

We also hear from the CachingK’s and respond to this questions “Why exactly did Groundspeak do away with virtual caches? In the post 9/11 world, it makes sense to allow them”.
