Virginia and I went to the Moncton Mega Event they just had and after we crossed the border into Canada I looked at her and had to say " Canada, Canada Oi Oi" so thanks a lot Doctor D and this I can not blame on Mone-A-Lot !Although I think Mone-A-lot might have been working the gaurd post on the way back into Maine because that guy had some issues.

Dumb stuff geocachers do: we have a bike rack which fits on our tow bar and can be lowered down to get in the boot. Ady has a few times lowered this, got stuff out the boot, raised the bike rack and got back in the car ready to drive off before realising boot us still open!!We also did a wherigo near Bourne which had clues to each stage which you had to decipher in rot 13. Annoyingly it wouldn't let you copy and paste so Ady would read out the code and I'd type them into a decoder. 3 timed during this wherigo he read me the letters to the last hint!! Arg,!Or do a tree climb at the mega, sped up on ropes but on the descent Ady pressed descender to steady himself - not a good idea as he then sped towards the ground back first! Luckily he was okay although the hearts of those watching weren't.
When we spoke with noted Metro Detroit hider Puzzler26 he shared his "close clues" concept. Clues are hidden around some of his geocaches with information to entertain or inform the finders. Check out that interview and get some inspiration for your #geocaching on "GGH 171: Puzzler26."

what's the dream cache he wants to find? (Tardis serving hot chocolate doesn't count wink emoticon )
Bonus question from Collin French
why my wee smells of boiled cabbage. #askdrd
The mighty Notts County were beating Aston Villa 2-1 in the week. Moan-A-Lot asks how they're doing and go on to lose 5-3. Had he not shown an interest, we'd have won.

Was the August chalenge to get 2 different types of caches published? I had a mystery published (http://coord.info/GC607Z4) and lots of trads in the Q at the moment
We have gone an alternative route with ours, using Terracaching.com
