This episode was recorded straight after episode 55, we didn't find any caches in the five minutes between recording.
For 12/13/14 I decided to challenge myself to 4 events on the same day. To add to the fun I added some cache upkeep to the mix. Starting in Dodge City, Kansas on the 12th and ending in Emporia, Kansas on the evening of the 13th. Returning home on the 14th. Yes, a few caches were grabbed along the way and dozens of travel bugs were discovered. 378 miles were driven on the 12th. Upkeep work was preformed on GC3EBQ3 and GC3EBVN, both being log replacement. Events started on the13th with the first being GC5GQQM "Smokey Valley Cachers Brunch 10:11 12/13/14" in Salina, Kansas. 2nd was GC5C305 "Christmas Where ALL Families Are Welcome" in Derby, Kansas. 3rd stop GC5H086 "Last Chance before 01/02/03" in Herrington, Kansas. Final event being GC5GZ23 "Christmas Meet & Greet" in Emporia, Kansas. 223 miles were driven on the 13th. Total miles traveled by the time I returned home were 797. All events were great fun and I was so glad I talked myself into the challenge. Hope to try multi events again in the future. Did anyone else attend any events or cache on this rare date?

G'day Mark & Sam,
I hope you are having a great festive season.The last show was great to listen to as usual - I laughed myself silly on hearing the story of Sam being set on fire: BEST STORY EVER. I managed to find a couple of caches on Christmas day whilst out on a bike ride to burn off some of Christmas dinner.Last night I had a geocaching dream... the first time I have had a geocaching dream since I started caching in 2011.I was in my house (well, the place I was living in during my nightmare) and Walt from the Chicago Geocachers turned up on the door step. I remember thinking 'wow! one of the geocaching podcasting guys!'I invited Walt in and we were discussing going geocaching together. I suggested looking at the map showing caches around the local area for good ones to find, but Walt produced an app on a phone that produced all kinds of sweet geocaching information.It was then that I woke up.I have no idea why I would be dreaming about Walt, but thankfully it was in a geocaching capacity.cheers,
the Monkey King
