Last Week.. 1:08

On episode 80 (www.ohbeep.com/80) you will have heard us out and about doing a Wherigo (Tempus Fugit), which we didn’t find due to the app crashing.

We checked the previous logs and it seems that we weren’t the only ones who it crashed for. Seems it happened in the same stage for a number of people, using different devices on the hunt.

Shout out to Sarah Murphy (aka The Geocaching Junkie) who has a very good Geocaching related blog.  As requested by Moan-A-Lot.

Cache On Wheels has also joined the Periscopes. Expect some deep dive information filled scopes.

Ask Dr D.. 7:09

I have a question for Dr D if he doesn't log his finds, how does he keep track of which caches he has already found?

Keep up the great work guys :)

Look forward to the next podcast,

Bye

Ey Up Me Duck Challenge/#blamemoanalot.. 16:57

November Challenge:  

To Find either 1 cache in another country or 2 caches in 2 counties

Entries from Eric Beal and Lucie Melen

From Eric..

We are entering the eye up me duck challenge this month with two caches in two different county. The first is -GC65JZT- Stockton Springs 8  that is in Waldo County, Maine.

The second is -GC1M8P1- Glover's wig that is in Cumberland County, Maine.

Glover's wig cache was out last cache to get for completing the Fizzy Challenge which I sled down the hill and ripped open my finger nail, while my wife was rapping it up I wish MoanALot was there so I could blame him.

Thanks for a great podcast,

Eric Beal

Decembers Challenge

For those in Notts, they have to find 2 of the new Christmas caches that are going out daily. For others, 2 caches with Christmas related words in title.

News.. 26:25

Geocaching.com making reviewers reveal themselves? This was discuss on episode 427 of The Geocaching Podcast. Our view:

  • How will this be enforced?
  • Why just new reviewers?
  • Why not give existing reviewers a period of time to decide if they want to carry on under the new rules or step down?
  • Why make them reveal themselves anyway? Seems like trouble waiting to happen.

Police confused by 'concerning' item in 'worrying location' - turns out to be a geocache (From www.falmouthpacket.co.uk).  Oh the shame, its in the UK.

"For geocache enthusiasts out there, please continue to enjoy yourselves but do think about the item your are leaving and make sure it is marked as a geocache, the contents can be seen and be sure it cannot be mistaken for something harmful.

"Finally think about where you are placing it and who might need to know it is there."

Speculation about the "worrying location" included a rabbit hole or a water drainage system, possibly in Penrose woods, while one commenter said the "device" looked like " three tins of beans in some fishnet stockings."

There has been a bit of a bomb scare on one of the GWW Series caches, we did a couple of weeks ago (check www.ohbeep.com/79 to hear our adventures from that series). The cache in question is No Re-Morse GC5VQ7E. Note from the CO:

An update: Notts police have this cache in their possession and will be returning it to us sometime this week, this cache will be moved as it was muggled in it's recent location and reported as a bomb *sigh* please hang in there while we try and rectify this and find a new place to hide it

Capaldi to stay on for another year as the Doctor (From mirror.co.uk)

"Peter is keen to complete three years playing the Doctor to round off his storylines. That will take us until the end of next year. After that, who knows?”

However, the new series might be made up of several feature-length episodes rather than 13 shows.
