Great show.

As long as you hurt your finger caching Sonny, well that's ok. Great job Sandy for continuing the hunt and making the find! Wink Wink Laughing

Seriously - glad you are ok Sonny and hope no poisonous flora got you. Looking forward to the continuation......


Edited to add: Pre-ordered coins the other day. Fun bling.

Aaaaahhhh....life is back to normal. Looks like you had a great trip just from looking at the pictures (aside from the sprained finger!).

Looking forward to listening to the show later.

You asked about caching along rivers, my mom, who I introduced to caching as a supplement to her bird watching excursions, has added her own twist to it and is now mainly a "paddle cacher." More than half of her finds in the last few months have been Terrain 5's because they are only accessible by canoe or kayak. She even recently bushwhacked in to a cache from the river side, even though there was park and hike access available a few miles away, because she prefers to go in that way. (She's in her 50's btw.) Now she's planning a sort of river based "power trail" between put in points along a river near her. So yes, river caching exists, and there are people who do it regularly!

Your trip sounded like great fun, thanks for sharing!

Sonny
I've been looking at Chapman Sticks for several years. They are a little out of my price range at the moment though. I'm hoping to located someone near me who has one so I can at least see one up close.

Sounds like a great trip. Very Happy

You mention having to explain Geocaching in another language. I had the same problem in Panama in January. (GC163XA) A great resource for brochures in a few languages is Geocacher-u.com

Specifically http://geocacher-u.com//index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=19&Itemid=54

I thought after, if you had to explain to a policeman or security guard what you were doing poking around; having one of these in your pocket would be handy and keep you out of trouble. Embarassed

GREAT SHOW! I felt like I was there.. and was TOTALLY bummed when we didn't get to hear the Zip-line story. UGH! Another week of waiting! Wink

Just had a chance to peek at your pix, too. WOW, looks like an amazing trip (well, except for the finger incident).

BTW, the "lizard" picture you posted... thought you might find it interesting to know that that particular lizard is a Basilisk (Basiliscus). The Basilisk is also known as the "Jesus Lizard" because of it's ability to walk on water. These little suckers run so fast (on their back feet) they can literally move across the surface without sinking.

OH.. I found a vid on YouTube - check it out:

Hi Sonny & Sandy!

Sandy, great job with the research for the Free Maps! I have found several free maps now for Afghnistan (talk about a great vacation spot! NOT!) and I will give it a go before I deploy this summer. I will take the information to work to share with the other Garmin owners in my unit.

Incidentally, I have never been to Costa Rica, but I have been to Panama (on a Military trip, not a vacation). What I remember most is that for every thing of beauty God created, the Devil made a counterfeit in Panama that will kill you or at least make you wish it had. For palm trees, there is Black Palm, with rings of spines around the trunk that will pierce a leather glove and stay in your skin for weeks. For fuzzy little old caterpillars, there are these things that will cause you to puff up and turn black around their bite in minutes. The bleedin' frogs are toxic. They have a snake, the Ferdelance, whose venom is at once a neurotoxin, a hemotoxin, and a necrotic, meaning it will affect your nerves and blood and cause the skin to rot around the bite as well. Very deadly. Central America was not my favorite place...! My hat's off to you!

Great show! It was great that you managed to find all those caches while shuttling around Costa Rica.

My mom's ring finger swelled up and she did have to have her wedding ring removed professionally. I'm glad it didn't come to that Sonny!

Thanks for sharing all the nice vacation photos. It really adds to your podcast.
