I was listening to the Podcast on my way to work this morning and heard the question about the Letterbox Hybrids. These are my favorite types of caches. As you mentioned, you do not HAVE to have a stamp in order to log the cache. It is optional, but makes it more fun for future loggers and the CO to see all of the stamps used by previous cachers. You CAN just sign you name and date it, but the hider meant for this cache to be more than a regular traditional cache. To make it fun, if you do not have a stamp, use your finger or thumb to make an impression in the log book. If there's no stamp pad in the box, the ink from most pens colored on your finger will be sufficient. After you leave the fingerprint, use your pen to make a drawing out of it. Make it into a sheep, a bee, a flying saucer, a Mr. Potatohead etc. Be creative. Many cachers have little stickers with their caching name and a little image and those will also work. It's nice to do something more than just a signature and a date to reward the cache owner's effort, especially if they have gone to the trouble of hand-carving their own stamp. I have several letterbox caches out on Opencaching.US and Geocaching.com, some of which are cross-posted to AtlasQuest.com (a popular letterboxing website). If you're ever around Snook, TX, stop by and check out "Chicken Fried Bacon" GC2ZQMN, my first hand-carved stamp. Take care and keep on stampin'.

Let's hope Sonny and Sandy are taking notes. These are great suggestions, worthy of being discussed in a future show! There are too few letterbox hybrids and when the stamp goes missing and geocachers complain about it, the CO just archives the cache. Confused If only others knew there is another way to keep it going! Podcacher needs to spread the message - Thanks NativTxn - you made our day with this post!

Midatlantic in a 747 when this came out, so I had to wait until back in the UK to download Laughing

Geocaching on Dartmoor in the UK can be challenging - there are so many Letterboxes spread across the moor that you can almost guarantee finding 2 or 3 before the geocache at some sites

Steam punk is awesome. I don't know if you watch Castle on ABC, but it is one of our favorite shows. They had a steam punk episode in season 3 episode 4 called "Punked". It stars Nathan Fillion from Firefly and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog fame.
