Caching In The NorthWest podcast
The Monkey King
Just finished listening to the latest show, and I enjoyed it very much.
Dr D needs to do better Google searches on the States of Australia. The State of Victoria was established in 1851, so maybe Dr D was looking at Australian Colonial when looking up where Victoria is... as it hasn't been part of New South Wales since that date.
Also, Victoria is almost as big as the United Kingdom, so my 'Part of NSW' as Dr D put it, would fit every thing except Northern Island with in it's boarders.
I loved the interview with Geocass, and I hope the 2015 Mega Event will be great fun for all involved.
ps - look forward to seeing photos of Dr D's Dalek costume mentioned in the show.
Forget to re-new their Premium membership to GC.com

The Monkey Kings is on 139 miles and hasn't moved since 6th July.

To celebrate our 4th anniversary (Aug. 18) and the month of International Geocaching Day (Aug. 23), OpenCaching North America will be running a contest for the entire month of August, which encourages people to use alternative geocaching websites (Us and the OpenCaching Network, Terracaching.com,GPSgames.org, Geocaching Australia and Navicache.com), as well as the smartphone based GPS games Munzee, Sighter and Monster Cache. This contest is inspired by two similar “non-official” contests run in the past by one of our admins, NativTxn, as well as a local “Alternative to the Frog” contest run by Termite Hunter during May and June 2014 at the Greater Charlotte Geocaching Club website. PRIZES include a brand new in the box GPS unit from Terracaching, multiple premium memberships and multiple “virtual packages” from Munzee, a Sighter T-Shirt, Cache Me If You Can Geocaching board game, Monster coins from Monster Cache, swag from Geocaching Australia and much, much more!

Just renewed our membership - at a cost which is about £7 or £8 more than it would cost in the US. For us in the UK it is about £25.
Compare that to other hobbies...
Football (Notts County) about £23 per game.
Golf Green Fees - between £14 to £29 per game.
We could have moved off GC.com and gone with one of the free listing sites. They have great caches, but they can be miles apart. But you'd soon burn that £7 you saved - considering fuel is about £1.31a litre (£6 per gallon).
We could have gone for the free option on GC.com. Two reasons we like the Premium - Pocket Queries and Notifications. The time saved equals more time for caching.
Doctor D doesn't agree and thinks Geocaching should be free for all.
