Standing in the middle of a clearing in Otterden woodland is a nine-foot high statue, carved from an oak tree, which has been shrouded in mystery for the last 40 years.

Collectors discover putative skull (from www.bild.de)

Two mushroom pickers (father and daughter) discovered Tuesday a supposed child's skull!

Nearby they found more strange objects, like a camouflage net and parts of grave light.

They (35 and 64) immediately called the police. Spokesman Werner Kraus: "At first sight, the whole thing looked for the officials actually like a folded-out skull." The forest area around the "Tatort" was spacious blocked, notified the homicide unit .

From AlienChauncey..

I've recently found my 1000th geocache on my 300th day in a row caching. I've also hosted my first event as well as finding 10 different geocaching types in a day.

Just listening to the show good to hear you guys back. FYI I could blow up your car with a special mixture in a pill bottle. Lol

From Virginia and Damian..

G'day Mates,
Just finished listening to the most recent episode, very funny but that's cheating using the accent simulator to read out my letter :)
The Karen voice is the same one as used in my Garmin Nuvi, some of her pronunciations can be quite funny, she seems to have a funny way of saying some words; Ross and Avenue  for example and often trips up on cache names try getting her to say SHHHH
Anyway look forward to the next episode.
Best wishes,
Damian

The boy has infected me. There are times that I'm minding my own business and hear / see a reference to Canada and find myself thinking / saying, "Canada, Canada! Oy, Oy!"

From Danno (Dan-No) Pugatch (Poo Gah Tch)

Greetings from Portland, Maine USA!

Danno of Team_Pugatch just writing in to let you guys know I listened to my first episode of the Oh Beep Podcast (Lost in Translation.) I enjoyed it very much and look forward to future episodes. I dd notice the lack of dialects in your episode and wanted to give you a primer on how to speak like you are from Boston, Massachusetts whereI grew up.

Bawstin (Boston) the city
Cah (Car) an automobile
Havahd (Harvard) the university
Haht (Hot) temperature
Pahk (Park) where we geocache
Geocah shh (Geocache) what we find in the park
Lobstah (Lobster) our main meal around here
Coppah (Copper) the law enforcement officer

It is not atypical to drive your cah around Bawstin searching for a geocah shh in the pahk. Make sure you do not illegally pahk your cah in Havahd or the coppah will write you a ticket.

Keep on Podcasting, and if you ever come across the Pond look me up and I’ll take you guys out for lobtah and pints of bittah!

GGH Tips..

Many GeoGearHeads talked about how they use mass transit when travelling to save time, money, and aggrevation on "GGH 172: Mass Transit Caching I." Using a cities buses, trains, toley, subways, and more can be faster than dealing with the surface traffic. Many times it's cheaper than parking that rental car. It can also make your trip more enjoyable since your won't have to worry about the local laws and strange streets.

Dumb Stuff Geocachers Do..

Don't drop the finder.  Tell your partner you're online recording.  Watch the cow poo.

Ask Doctor D..

From Tony Liddell 

Does he prefer GSAK or Project GC?

Jim Bay 

What is Dr D's thoughts on people that pick up travel bugs and don't bother reading the mission for that travel bug, and instead do their own thing with the travel bug?
