Mary Hyde Info:

FAQs: The lost treasure of Mary Hyde

FAQs: The lost treasure of Mary Hyde

The lost treasure of Mary Hyde


Reminder:
July 15-16 – Build your crew by attending or hosting an event and earn a souvenir. The more friends you have on Geocaching.com, the easier it will be to keep sailing on…
July 17-23 – Though the treasure may seem far away, if you work together you’ll earn the first map piece one day.
July 24-30 – Don’t be afraid to take the lead, to earn the next map piece you already have everything that you need.
July 31-August 6 – When you work with a crew, earning the third map piece becomes easier to do.
August 7-13 – Challenge yourself to earn the last piece, or else the search for lost treasure will never cease.

Friend League Introduction:
Hello everyone,

I want to give you a quick heads up about today’s Geocaching.com update. The release includes the website’s newest feature: Friend League.

The Friend League is a leaderboard that shows geocaching activity of you and your geocaching friends. If you log a cache or attend an event, you collect points in the form of gold coins.

This feature goes hand in hand with The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde. To earn the souvenir with the first map piece, you and your crew have to collect 30 gold coins during July 17-23. (Read more about the Mary Hyde souvenirs on the Geocaching Blog.)

The rules for earning gold coins change every Monday at 5 am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), Noon UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). At that time, the Friend League will refresh and the gold coin count goes back to zero.

Friend League is a test feature. We’ll evaluate usage and feedback during The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde before deciding how this functionality might be used in the future.

Yours in caching,

Chris Ronan
PR Manager
Geocaching HQ

First “Message in a Bottle” was sent out on Monday July 17th.
Collect 30 gold coins to earn the first map piece souvenir
Buccaneers unite! With pirate events behind us, it is time to gather your crew and set sail.

We received a second message in a bottle signed by the infamous Mary Hyde. This week you need all your seaworthy men and women. On the Friend League collect a combined total of 30 gold coins from July 17 to July 23 together with your crew to earn the souvenir with the first map piece!

You have (1) new message in a bottle!

Chat Room Can Add Their .02c During the show.
Learning through reverse logic.
Help from geocachers on Facebook.

Cully – Don’t understand what the different types mean.
Creating a geocacher name that is long and proud – This is great for nano logs and when you are doing a hundred cache geotrail.
Tyana – Not being prepared for the weather, especially in extreme places like AZ or Alaska.
Not having the proper equipment, clothing or supplies can get you into serious trouble quickly….
I also tell someone where we are going just in case.
Travel bugs are just like swag and can be given to your geo-kid or geo-puppy for their enjoyment…

Hello Andy:

Given the upcoming Canada Day souvenir, I am encountering the stereotypical “eh” in geoevent titles. Did you once indicate that there is a U.S. city where people who live north of a bridge also use “eh”, and people who live south of the bridge do not? I believe the bride’s may be in a Great Lake’s state, and the bridge’s name contains “mac”.

Thank you

Hi Andy and Amy,

How do you deal with differences in physical limitations when geocaching with friends and/or family? I am pretty much “able-bodied” but my friends are not so much. A terrain of 2.5 is easy for me but too difficult for one of my friends. I haven’t figured out the secret to deciphering the Terrain levels especially when a local cache that requires walking through tall grass and one in the neighbouring town has a steep incline trail are both listed as 2.5. I feel bad when my friend can’t make it to GZ. I also feel bad for finding the cache because I probably wouldn’t get another chance to find it if I called off the search on account of her physical limitations. Do you have any advice?

Thank you,
Paula (pjhugs)

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 202
Geocaching Basics – Geocache Sizes – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 202

HHH, Please show some examples of micro, small, regular, and large containers. Also, I would love some tips on finding small or micro geocaches. I’m a newbie!

Geocaches vary greatly in size and appearance. In the field you will see everything from large, clear plastic containers to film canisters to a fake rock with a secret compartment. So, how do you find the cache?

The first step is to get a general idea of the cache’s size. The size is shown on each cache page. A general overview of the cache size graphic is found below. Please note that these are just examples; sizes can vary.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 201
Understanding Multi and Puzzle Geocaches – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 201

What is a Multi-cache?
These geocaches involve two or more locations, with the final location being a physical container with a logbook inside. There are many variations, but typically once you’re at the first stage, you will receive a clue to the whereabouts of the second stage. The second stage will have a clue for the third, and so on.

What is a Puzzle cache?
The “catch-all” of geocache types, this type may involve complicated puzzles that you will first need to solve to determine the correct coordinates. Mystery/Puzzle Caches often become the staging ground for new and unique geocaches that do not fit in another category.

Differences between Multies and Puzzles?

Multi-caches:
Consists of several stages or waypoints that eventually leads to a traditional geocache

Puzzle caches:
Puzzle getting to the geocache
Puzzle getting the log out of the geocache

Pros and Cons?

Pros
Pro – Multi – Takes you on an adventure

Cons
Con – Multi – Multiple stages and a single smiley
