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

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)

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 193
What NOT To Hide As A Geocache (Reboot) – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 193

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.

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.

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

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.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 187

A geocacher’s secrets to making New Year’s resolutions stick
by Paige Edmiston.

A geocacher’s secrets to making New Year’s resolutions stick

Lose weight and get fit.
How much money do we spend on mechanical clothes hangers or other fitness trends only to drop them after a few weeks or less? Get out geocaching and hit those trails to help with a better you.

Make new friends.
Go geocaching with fellow geocachers, new geocachers, etc.
Find them at geocaching events. Doesn’t have to be a big event. Sometimes smaller is better.

Spend more time with family.
Hang on to the time you can go geocaching with your family members.
Sometimes they grow out of it.
Geocaching with your significant other

Drink more water.
The number one provision of geocachers is water. Always be sure to have enough with you for not only yourself but others in your geocaching party and your pets.

Be less stressed.
Some of my favorites is:
Walking in the Woods, during the different seasons.
Greenways
Walkways
Places of tranquility

Travel.
There is nothing like geocaching in an area that you have never been.
Throw a dart and go for a day trip, weekend or more.
Utilize favorite points.
Go for areas known for excellent geocaching trails where you can possibly earn a geocoin.

Learn something new.
Puzzle or Mystery caches are a great way to learn some new technique you may never tried before. There are so many different ways of finding and opening geocaches that your geocaching pack may fill up rather quickly with gadgets and gizmos that you never thought you needed.

Step out of your comfort zone.
Many new geocachers believe that the only main type of geocaching adventures out there are the standard traditionals. Find the box, sign the log, put the box back, next.. But there are many other types like Earthcaches, Multi-caches, Whereigos and Lab Caches to name a few. Find out which ones interest you and go find them.
Go to places you have never been to!

Get married.
Geocaching can help. Seriously. Watch this video to learn how to make a geocaching proposal.

Break a personal record.
Goals are a perfect way to set resolutions. If you say to yourself that you will find more geocaches this year you may try harder to do so. Though if you say I will find 200 more geocaches this year you are more apt to succeed.

Spend less time on social media.
Yes we live in a time where practically everyone has a cell phone permanently attached to their arm like a Borg implant. We can’t move without poking our nose into the latest trend or hot hashtag. It is time to make a conscious effort to disconnect from the media hive and find some good old you time. What better way than to go out into the world and go geocaching.

Spend more time in nature.
Nothing like taking a mountain trail, walking in a swamp, exploring a dense woods or forest. There are so many places to find geocaches all around the world. Get outside and find some memories.

Give back.
One of the easiest ways to give back to the geocaching community is to become a part of it. Create cool geocaches, host geocaching events including CITO events to help keep our gameboard clean.

Eat healthier.
You don’t have to be a licensed nutritionist to realize that if you eat healthy and exercise that it will help your body overall. If you are willing to take the exercise aspect of your life why not go all the way and eat healthier too?

Start thinking more positively.
It seems to many that finding the negative in any game, sport or activity is the easy way to do things. Finding fault leads one to seeing only the most negative aspects. Why not try finding the positive and appreciating what you find? Personally I would rather witness the good in something rather than dwell within the bad.

Enjoy life to the fullest.
“Geocaching brings people together in pursuit of discovery, exploration, and adventure. ‘Nuff said.”
Really can’t beat that comment.
