Our find count for the year is now a massive 43.  Goal is 200 for the year.

How did we do on our puzzle challenge? MVP by StanleyPopTart GC4R5N3 over in Beeston.

Feedback...

Cache On Wheels...

Thanks very much for highlighting handicaching.com and it's benefits in your latest podcast :)
It was great how you demonstrated on the show:

- just how simple the process of rating a cache is

- anyone can rate a cache, it just needs for cache owners to agree to add the HTML code at the bottom of the description on their cache page. Thanks to all those who have :)

- how it gives 'information' which valuable to everyone to make an informed decision. This is important as a everyone's abilities are different and one persons ability can fluctuate and for some, without warning.

An idea - maybe post a link in your podcast page to the forum about handicaching and ask viewers for questions, making sure they are respectful of course and what information would be useful to them as cache owners to about what to put on their cache pages and rating caches?

The gagb forum thread I started is here

DarrylW4...

On Maker Madness – I'd have liked it to been held in March or November. That's when people seem to be thinking about new hides and would have been more timely.

On themes from GC – I would like to see themes each month or quarter. Sometime like April = CITO, June = explore, November = tricky

Ask Doctor D...

DarrylW4 - When should you consider archiving your hide?
