Chat about show 118...

Any tips for getting a muggle interested in geocaching?

Any other thoughts on the part that picking up trash plays in geocaching?

Reply with quote


Honestly, I was hesitant to geocache (even with Sonny's efforts). One day, a friend of ours (Maverickk) came over for a BBQ with his wife and kids and asked me if Sonny got me into geocaching. He then pulled out his GPS and said that there was a cache within walking distance of my house. We decided to go check it out after dinner. We took our spouses and kids out for a walk to the park. We zeroed out by a wooded area. Then voila! we found it. At that moment, the lightbulb went off. I called Sonny from a Target the next day so that he could walk me through my GPS purchase!

I think the best way to get a muggle into geocaching is to take them out on a find. I have several co-workers who have gotten into geocaching just by coming along with me. Once they have tried it, those memories of finding the hidden Easter eggs when they were younger will come back to them!

Nice ending! Well created suspense. Reminds me of the "What's that sound?" stuff from early shows—something landing on the table had a distinctive thud, and whatever was in the box, there was a multiplicity of 'em.

As I was listening to the show thru my computer, I went online to the Royal Caribbean website (we're cruising next summer, and I was checking out which ports we'll be visiting) and all of a sudden I could hear the RC theme song. At first, I thought that it was coming from the podcast. I was wondering why S&S would play it so loud...but of course, they did not. The music was coming from the RC website. LOL!

If it's what I think it is, how can I get one? Would love to release it in Nova Scotia, Canada!

Enjoyed the show and checked out those backpack chairs you mentioned. How lightweight are they and since you own them, do you think they're sturdy/rugged and worth the cost?

Loved the show ending, lol!

Pretty lightweight, but they do hold things like backpacks. So you could load it up with sodas, towels, frisbees, a GPS, some swag, some GeoCoins, water, sunscreen, a didgeridoo, ... then it wouldn't be lightweight any more.

Sturdy? ... They are just like aluminum beach chairs. So they are not SUPER sturdy, but should last a while if used as intended. The footrests are not length adjustable though, so REALLY tall people may not like 'em. They come right under my ankles (I'm about 5'6"). They do make a backpack chair version that doesn't have the footrests. Costs less too.

When you mentioned that you lost your geocaching hat - I thought that the Tilley Hat was gone. Phew - glad it isn't. Oh and Sandy - sorry you lost your hat.

Nope the Tilley would have floated (it's got a built in foam ... floaty thing, no kidding!) The sad thing is that hat was MY geocaching hat before we were married. Sandy commandeered it because she liked how she could put her pony tail through the back part. I never wore the hat again... Very Happy No problem, we learned a valuable boogie boarding lesson: Don't go boarding with things that don't float! Wink We then refrained from boogie boarding with GPS!

Great show, guys!

Regarding converting muggles, my husband, the Reluctant Spouse, thought caching was stupid when I first started. I initially convinced him to come along by getting him to drive (he loves his car). Then I chose caches with the sort of great views that he enjoys. Next I picked a couple in other areas I knew he'd like. Gradually he came to see caching as a way of finding great places we never knew existed.

It wasn't until about cache number 50 that he started asking me where we were going to cache that weekend, instead of asking if we had to go. He still isn't interested in the GPS receiver or the GC website, but he really does enjoy going caching now.

As for the show, I just loved watching that cache replacement segment - good work!
