SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 195
March 2017 Mish Mash Episode – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 195

Speakpipe From Joshua Johnson the Geocaching Vlogger

This Sunday March 19 (his birthday) is going to be “Geocaching For Michael Day”
In Memory of Geocacher Michael Costello (age 14)

This is a quote from Joshua the geocaching vlogger, but we feel the same way here on Geocaching Podcast.
“It is with sadden hearts and tears that we acknowledge the passing of fellow geocacher Michael. All are prayers go to the Costello family and we are spreading the news about Geocaching For Michael Day this March 19th. Warm regards from the Geocaching Podcast and the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast.”
Michael was born with a congenital heart defect and had a heart transplant, and used Geocaching as a form therapy.

APE CACHE VOTE
Happy Friday everyone!
Just moments ago, Geocaching HQ announced via the Geocaching Blog and our social channels that the community has voted to return and reactivate the Mission 9: Tunnel of Light APE cache.
We will reactivate the APE cache on August 19, 2017, the date of the Going Ape 2017 Mega-Event at Washington’s Iron Horse State Park.

Here are the result of more than 10,000 votes:
61% — Return and Reactivate
17% — Activate Once A Year
13% — Display at Geocaching HQ
9% — Traveling Artifact

In the coming weeks, Geocaching HQ will work closely with the Washington State Geocaching Association (organizer of the Going Ape Mega-Event) and we will update the community as additional details are worked out.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Yours in caching,
Chris Ronan

Team G, here. Going through your old podcasts and I am on EP 164.

But Please Please Please tell Andy it is call CURE-ee and not CURE. Here is a snippet from the town’s website. “The land that is now called Kure (pronounced CURE-ee) “

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 194
How To Start Geocaching – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 194

Place to get our geocaches for the day – Geocaches are listed on various listing services. By far the most common is geocaching.com. Others Include:
Opencaching.us
EarthCache.org is all about earth science and teaching people about the world they live in. These earth caches are located in unique and special areas and don’t involve finding a container – it’s all about the journey.
NaviCache.com is the second oldest cache listing site, with the majority of caches in European countries, particularly Germany. You are allowed to post and log caches on both this site and Geocaching.com together. This site has declined in popularity however with the introduction of more user friendly and advanced interface sites.
TerraCaching.com is a cache listing site that focuses more on the quality of caches as opposed to the quantity – any cache that scores below 1.0 on their ‘”Measure of Cache Excellence’ system is automatically archived. The harder the cache you find, the more points you get, giving an alternative system to the ‘smiley’ one of geocaching.com
Letterboxing The original letterboxing (North America)

GeoSnippits Reboot: Ep 006 – What NOT To Hide As A Geocache
Original video Apr 19, 2009 – GeoSnippits What NOT To Hide As A Geocache
Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgCzzGu2oHo

One of our more popular GeoSnippits Videos is of course: GeoSnippits What NOT To Hide As A Geocache. The concept behind it was to show why geocaches fail and why poor geocache choices make poor geocaches in general. Hopefully if a geocacher who was going to put out a geocache saw the video and said to themselves, “Oh I wouldn’t make a geocache out of that”, then hopefully they wouldn’t. It is one of five videos many fellow geocachers have expressed that all geocachers should watch when they first get involved with geocaching.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 191
Camouflage is the art of hiding or obscuring something, to make it appear like something it’s not, or to have it disappear into its surroundings. As you can imagine, camouflage can play a very important role in geocaching. In an urban setting it can be used to hide containers in plain sight. In the woods it can make a simple hide more difficult.

In this episode we’ll cover some of the various ways you can use camo in your geocaching hides.
