The Cacher Coffee episodes are a riot because it allows everybody including our audience to chime in about just about any geocaching based subject. This month we talked about everything from how do we handle DNFs to what temps cause us NOT to go out geocaching and why. This and so much more. It’s an episode you do not want to miss.

It’s the holiday season. What gets you out geocaching this time of year?

Episode 327 – Holiday Muggle Converts

In tonight’s episode it’s Dave TheCarolinaCacher’s turn to be “on assignment” and is out for the count with a bad case of laryngitis. We wish him a speedy recovery and are anxious to hear what his big announcement is going to be next week. For this episode though Andy HeadHardHat Smith, Darrylw4, Scott Berks and Corey Stephens give back for the holiday season by first going over some Black Friday specials right out of the current ads available for next week’s holiday season start. Then the gang discusses two aspects of having family over for the holidays. One is suggestions for getting geocaching into a person’s life once they start getting new digital devices and then how to get the rest of the family into geocaching as well. It is a family tradition for many. It’s a fun episode and well worth a look and listen too.
