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.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 189

What exactly is a MEME?
noun
an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation.
a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc., that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.
Examples:
One of the most popular for 2015-2016

Be Like Bill: a passive-aggressive meme that comments on people’s life choices.

GRUMPY CAT
More Cowbell
Honey Badger – Honey Badger Don’t Care
2001: All Your Base Are Belong To Us
‘All Your Base’ is an ‘Engrish’ humor meme… it comes from the flawed translation of Japanese into English subtitles. Instead of ‘all your bases belong to us’, this mistaken translation caught fire in 2001. The original video footage is from Zero Wing, a 1989 video game by Toaplan. Today, All Your Base is a joke phrase used in pop culture.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 188

There has always been a Coke or Pepsi debate when it comes to some geocaching tools. One of the bigger ones is the debate between Multi Tools vs Swiss Army Knives and that got us thinking which one really is better than the other and what components we actually use.

So let’s bring out the two contenders for a look see.

In this corner we have the handy man’s must have – The Multi Tool
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-tool

Per Wiki: MultiTools
A multi-tool (or multitool) is any one of a range of portable, versatile hand tools that combines several individual functions in a single unit. The smallest are credit-card or key sized units designed for carrying in a wallet or on a keyring, but others are designed to be carried in a trouser pocket or belt-mounted pouch.

Historical
The idea of incorporating several tools in one small portable unit is very old, dating back at least as far as Middle Roman times.[1] Many of these were based around eating.

In 1984 Tim Leatherman sold his first “Pocket Survival Tool”,[2] larger and more robust than a pocket-knife based tool, and incorporating a set of needle-nosed pliers in a balisong-style mechanism. Too large for most pockets, it came with a belt pouch. Today, Leatherman Tool Group manufactures and markets a variety of multi-tool models.

“Leatherman” is now often treated as a genericized trademark[citation needed] for the similar multi-tools now available from makers such as Coleman, Gerber, Kershaw Knives, Schrade, SOG Knife, Victorinox, Craftsman – along with many unbranded types produced in low-cost production regions, and smaller mini and micro units are often small enough for pockets or even key rings.

Geocaching Uses:
Pilers – loose caps, stuck items, pick things up with
Bottle / Can opener
Tweezers
Knives
Saws

Amazon.com

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=leatherman&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aleatherman

Per Wiki: Swiss Army Knife
——————————-
In this corner we have the Schweizer Offiziersmesser: German “Swiss officer’s knife”.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_Army_knife

The Swiss Army knife generally has a sharp blade, as well as various tools, such as screwdrivers, a can opener, and many others. These attachments are stowed inside the handle of the knife through a pivot point mechanism. The handle is usually red, and features a Victorinox or Wenger “cross” logo or, for Swiss military issue knives, the coat of arms of Switzerland.
Originating in Ibach, Switzerland, the Swiss Army knife was first produced in 1891 after the company, Karl Elsener, which later became Victorinox, won the contract to produce theSwiss Army’s Modell 1890 knife from the previous German manufacturer. In 1893, the Swiss cutlery company Paul Boéchat & Cie, which later became Wenger, received its first contract from the Swiss military to produce model 1890 knives; the two companies split the contract for provision of the knives from 1908 until Victorinox acquired Wenger in 2005.
The design of the knife and its versatility have both led to worldwide recognition.[2]

Geocaching Uses:

Scissors
Toothpick
Cork Screw
Screw Driver
Pliers

So depending on your preferences and budget you are going find a multitool or Swiss Army Knife to fill your geocaching needs.
