Stats Bar for Capt BigginsListen to our interview with Capt Biggins of Tampa Bay, Florida. He learned about Geocaching from a TechTV interview with Jeremy Irish (October 30, 2000 according Geocaching.com's Press Archives). While the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx is his current GPS, he started caching with the Garmin GPS 72. Cachemate on his PocketPC takes care of his paperless caching needs. His most memorable early geocache was "The Scavenger Hunt Cache" (GC480C) -- a locationless cache which gave him the chance to take a photo of a motorcycle officer with a GPSR and a Barbi doll. The most memorable cache was "Mission 9: Tunnel of Light" (GC1169), found during his trip to the Seattle area where he also visited the Groundspeak headquarters. Some day he hopes to cache in Glasgow, Scotland and Hawaii. His favorite hide is currently "Using Your Mind's Eye" (GC1G8YA) which is a visual puzzle that draws fun comments from the Finders. As for music, he enjoys Jimmy Buffett. As for the movies, he like Disney's "Pirates of the Carribean" series, but recently discovered a 1952 film titled "The Crimson Pirate."

Stats Bar for bumanfamListen to our interview with bumanfam of The Ice Cream Capital of the World (Northwest Iowa). They started caching with a Magellan eXplorist 210. Since then they've added more of the same units for the whole family and the Garmin iQue M5 for Dad. He's a GSAK fan using that to load the GPSRs. His introduction to Podcasts came from the Travel Bug they found which had a teaser for the "Podcacher Podcast." Were cost and time not an object, he'd love to cache the Banff National Park and Calgary, Alberta areas. As for their hides, his favorites are "We Wood Eaven Put A Cache Here (GC11FQ6)" and "GEOSCAMS (GC17917)." His best event memory comes from last year's "MOGA 2008 (GC167P0)" Mega Event with kid number 1. Bumanfam Mom is a fan of the "Harry Potter" movies. As for Dad, he likes "ER," "Survivor," and the "Star Wars" series.

Stats Bar for emilierene
Stats Bar for thetattooedjew
Listen to our interview with Team Outrageous Soul (emilierene and thetattooedjew). Their joint name was inspired by a trip to a Rockefeller Center drug store and the Dr. Scholl's Outrageous Soles display. Scott's first find was "The Empire Strikes Back (GC4D7F)" virtual cache while visiting New York with Emily. Emily started her caching with a Magellan eXplorist 200, upgraded to the Magellan eXplorist 500, but now uses the Garmin Colorado 300. Scott has been using the Garmin GPSMap 60CSx since his start. Emily's most memorable caching trip was in Waco, Texas where the cache density gave her many finds (Scott recalls about 28 caches in only 2 hours of caching). Scott enjoyed caching in his birth state of Hawaii during their honeymoon. Emily wants to cache all 50 states, Scott wants to cache in Bosnia. Emily enjoyed hiding the "Welcome to the Cove (GC168RY)." Their first (and currently only) event hosted was the recent "WWFM IV - Altoona's Blaze Orange Salute (GC1GWG3)" which was a great experience (see the video on YouTube). They're looking forward season five of "Lost" starting in a few weeks. Scott also enjoys "Law & Order Criminal Intent" while his favorite musical group is "U2."

Stats Bar for Team PsychopuppyListen to our interview with Team Psychopuppy of California. The team of five (two humans and three canines) took their name from the eldest puppy (Belle). They started their caching explorations with a Handspring Visor PDA with a GPS card from Magellan. Their first DNF didn't deter them, and eventually they purchased their Garmin GPSMap 60CSx and still prefer using that to their new Garmin Oregon. They're also using the navigation system in their Toyota Prius and the iPhone 3G. They still use their Handspring Visor and CacheMate for their cache information in the field. The 60CSx receives its caches through MacCaching while the Oregon is drag-and-drop of the GPX files from Geocaching.com. They hosted the "Caching on your Mac" at GeoWoodstock VI. They made a trip to visit his parents though during GeoWoodstock V. They enjoy their local Northern California for its variety, and especially Lake Powell (where they had an encounter with a winged geomuggle). One of their favorite events is the "Sonoma County Cachers Re-Union Cache" which they host each year. They also created the SRLUP series of caches bringing Cachers to the many small parks of Santa Rosa, California. They enjoy watching movies on their Plasma TV (when not Geocaching), including "Blade Runner" and the Disney/Pixar movies. For music they enjoy "Depeche Mode," "Heart," "Kansas," and "U2."
Also mentioned in this episode was the "Winter Potluck & Cabin Fever (GC16JBK)" event and the "Cache-A-Maniacs Geocoins Through PayPal" post.
