Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Geocaching Podcast

Well I downloaded this weeks geocaching podcast tonight.  This show is a real roller coaster for me.  They have some great topics, and some terrible ones. Great audio, and other times it is downright horrible.

They tend to spend a lot of time chattering on about technology, and about technical items.  Unfortunately they get bogged down in some details. And if I hear them talk about a cache and go G-C-1-3-4-4-5 again.. I will go nuts.  Just tell me the name and put the GC number in the podcast notes. It really sounds dumb.

Mediocre today.  They seem a bit critical of everything that Geocaching.com has done.  The like button.  That I was told by one of the lackey in all caps last night, is not for rating caches. 

Oh wait you do not get the right effect without the caps..let me try again.

The like button IS NOT FOR RATING CACHES. It is to share caches you like with your friends on facebook.  Nothing more or less.   If you don't like facebook, don't participate.

Actually I do not remember if it was in all caps, but he did emphasize the point.

They did chatter on about collectibles that I do not know anything about, even thought I followed some discussions about it in Reviewer forums, and chats, but I did not pay that much attention.  they also discussed the Garmin Map 62.  I would like to see one.  but I have no real desire to change.

New icons
Yes there are two new icons out there.  Some have misunderstood that it will be for the Triad. (Main office, Ape, and First Cache.  Nope.  That would be stupid actually (in my opinion).  The first cache was archived many years ago, so I do not really even include it.

One will be for the Lily pads Headquarters.   I have not read to see if it applies to all past and future visits.  The other will be for the 10th anniversary party.

I think I have decided to go. Enough people asked me that I am heading up... I think.
