Viewer Feedback:
From Adam McCreadie to our UK viewers and listeners:

The summer of 2016 promises to be an exciting time for Geocachers. On July 30th the first Mega of the season, Piratemania, is being held near Shrewsbury. The following day in Ashridge (near Tring), Geolympix 2016 takes place before a week of events running up to the 9th Annual UK Mega Event which is being held in Llangollen, North Wales on the 6th August 2016.

In addition to 3 Megas and at least 10 events there is the exciting addition of the GPS Maze exhibition being held in Llangollen which is the first time in the UK and the first time in English outside North America!

Why not come along for the opportunity to experience 3 distinctly different Mega events, the GPS Maze, 40 labcaches (across 3 Megas and the GPS Maze) and taste the broad range of geocaches that the UK has to offer all in one week!

Ever just get the urge to go out geocaching or do something geocaching related? Yeah us too. So we compiled some situations and hopefully the GSRP chatroom can chime in with suggestions right along with us.

How to handle with non-geocaching folks with you?
Finding geocaches during work, before, after
Lunchtime Geocaching

Geocache anytime and anywhere (within reason)
Impromptu Geocaching Events
Throw a dart geocaching trips (hour, afternoon, day, etc.)

Notes from Quiz #7
The Scores were lower on average so the quiz was harder than past ones.
Everyone loved the quiz and want more – so yes there will be more
Round 3 was down right brutal and pretty much blew everyone out of the water – blame wife Amy….
And the Winner of the coveted prize from Headhardhat’s Geocaching Quiz #7 is:

Geocaching Safety Tips – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 156

Make sure to tell someone where you are going and when you intend to return. Going into a forest or remote locations without a partner is inherently dangerous. Geocaching is great fun, so think about planning a group hike with your family or friends around the geocache adventure.
Pay attention to your surroundings. It is easy to focus on your GPS device and forget to look around you. Being conscious as to where you are walking will not only ensure your personal safety but will also respect the environment.
Pack your pack. Bring along a compass, map and extra batteries in case your GPS device fails. No matter the terrain or length of time on the trail, it is always a good idea to set out with extra clothing, food and water.
Be mindful of the local environment, especially during seasonal changes. Is the area prone to poison ivy or poison oak? What about bugs or dangerous animals? Not sure of the area in which you are heading?
