S4E18: Solo Geocaching Safety
Geocaching can be a fun family and social activity.  It can also be a fun solo activity.  No matter how you geocache or where you geocache, safety is always important but it becomes even more so when you're caching alone.  Recently a fellow geocacher, Robert Owens Jr of New Jersey,  passed away due to an unfortunate incident while he was out geocaching solo.  While I did not know Robert or any of his family, my heart goes out to them during their time of loss.  This is a very sad event and with it so fresh in so many of our minds, I wanted to take some time to talk about solo geocaching safety.

S4E16: Geocaching The Ultimate Beginners Guide - Book Review
I see Facebook post of geocachers who are newer to the game looking for advice on how to get started.  If you look, you can find various "how to" books about geocaching.  These books are meant to help you get started with the hobby.  But how good are these books really?  How accurate are they and which one should you choose?  I decided to take a look at one of these books as someone who has a bit of experience with geocaching and see if it really would be helpful to someone new to the game.  In this episode, I take a look at one that claims to be the "ultimate beginners guide to geocaching" to see if it really is.

What is a geocaching association?  Typically, it is an organized group of geocachers coming together to foster relationships in the local geocaching community and can be a great way to meet other geocachers in your area.  Some help foster relationships with the muggle community to show what geocaching is and build relationships with parks departments and land owners that can help making placing caches easier.  In this episode I talk with board members Micheal (President) and John (Vise President) of the St. Louis Geocaching Association (SLAGA) to learn more about what SLAGA is and it's role in the goecaching and muggle communities.

S4E11: GeoWoodstock, the Talk Continues
In Season 4 Epsode 10, I talked with Brad Simmons, spokesman for the board of GeoWoodstock and former event host, about GeoWoodstock.  We had a good long conversation and after an hour, when all my questions had been answered and I couldn't' think of anything else, we did a cache highlight and I thought the conversation would be wrapping up.  But as we were finishing, Brad though of a few more stories and incite that he wanted to share.  We talked for two hours about GeoWoodstock and JoeGPS and I'm certain we could have talked far longer.  With so many great stories, it didn't seem right to try to condense it all into one episode, nor did it seem to make sense to have one episode that was two hours long.  So here is the continuation of our conversation on GeoWoodstock.
