Dumb Stuff Geocachers Do..

On their latest episode (Number 33 Mark Twain Was 'ere) The UK Geocaching Podcast came up with their own Dumb Stuff Geocachers Do.  So, we thought we'd "borrow" one of these - as they're that good.

Feedback..

Mark,

Could you give this event a mention on the 'News & events' section of the next podcast, please?

Travelbug Race..

Oh Beep! Where are my other legs? has now done 296 miles, but is still milling around in Wales - in cache GC4GJRE - #2 Upper Boat Trail - Power Station

The Monkey Kings Southern S@M travel bug hasn't moved since our last update and is still on 139 miles.  It isn't in a cache at the moment.

Discussion..

How hard can it be to find a cache?  BananaSource two failed attempts to start the 7 Souveniers of August.

The plan was to start with

Traditional: Church Micro 6093 ... Castle Donington - St Edward A cache by GeoSandJLeo GC58DW3

Puzzle: Church Micro 5845...Kegworth A cache by stuarthowe11GC55AQK

DarryW4 mentioned that you get a ranking when finishing the 7 Souvenirs of August - could we aim to be the LAST to finish it?

Why we're archiving a cache that hasn't been out in the wild for more than six months - The Man In White GC5191B.

It seems some take the title literally and think they have to enter private property to grab the cache - because they don't think the co-ords are accurate.  Easily solved with a note in the description, but who reads those?

Its damaged and I can't find the spare parts box (irony alert).

Geocachers should be a temporary thing.  We've highlighted this area to others, lets archive this cache to see what they can do with the location.  Keeps the game fresh.

We all play the game in our own way, hiding caches is not where I get my enjoyment from the game.  There is the argument that as cachers should give back by creating hides.

Developed by leading neuroscientists, designers and mobile innovators, Traces lets you place music, pictures, videos and voice in the real-world for your friends to find. However, they can only find your trace if they are in the right place at the right time, and once they see it, it’ll be gone forever.
