GeoGearHeadsThe Bad Cop and DarrylW4 talking about caching by yourself for the seventy-ninth edition of the GeoGearHeads. The show kicked off with feedback from and StevensAdInfinitum. Following the feedback from Team Geofrog they talked a little about headsets and referred to GGH Beta.06: Podcatching for those looking for more information. Darryl mentioned a "Women Caching Alone" bookmark list he found interesting and asked for others to send in any other references like it. Also, information from the GGH Beta.22: Social Media Safety I episode applies to your actions on the trail. Several smartphone apps were mentioned; Glympse, Google Latitude, Moby, echoecho, and iCloud Find My Friends. They also mentioned the satellite-based options of the DeLorme InReach and Spot. For an emergency, backup mobile phone they also talked about the SpareOne Phone.

They started with a brief schedule of some dates from Groundspeak to promote getting out for some Geocaching. One show – GGH 072: Streaking I – seemed especially helpful for those attempting to cache the entire month of August.

The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 talk over three location-based games for the seventy-sixth edition of the GeoGearHeads, our thirteenth Randomize episode. The show started by answering some voicemail from JerseyEric about Munzee. WallaBee has been making the rounds through the Geocaching circles thanks to a post by previous guest Adrian Faulkner (a.k.a. figures). Finally, Ingress has undergone some changes making it a very different game than it had been when last mentioned on the GeoGearHeads.

He only has six hides ("Widdle Widow Maker," "Zero Xylem,&quot "Skin Crawl," "Snake Eyes," "'W', n cross section,&quot and "Barn View&quot) but each is a high-quality cache with multiple favorite points.

We also heard from several audience members. First JR and Juju weighed in on Wherigo. We also heard from The Puffin about a SD Card Camera Connection Kit for iPad. Minnesota Boy and TeamBuxton also commented in the Google+ Hangout On Air during the recording about a couple more issues mentioned at the end of the show.

The topic for the sixty-eighth edition of the GeoGearHeads is the gear used by our audience members. We spoke like with TheWoodenRadio who mostly uses his Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx with some help from his iPhone/iPad and Geosphere. Minnesota Boy also contacted us about his use of a Magellan eXplorist GC and iPhone. The Bad Cop, DarrylW4, and TheWoodenRadio also talked about the Rove (available through indiegogo), the Garmin Oregon 600 and 650 as to how they might change workflows for Geocachers in the future.

Also mentioned in this show was the virtual discovery policy for Geocaching.com trackables (discussed in length during the April Cacher Coffee show on the Geocaching Podcast) and how it relates to "GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race."

The sixty-seventh edition of the GeoGearHeads took a little turn from the Geocaching-focus to talk with Rich Harmon about the tPod line. The Program Manager at Tellurex told us about the Smithsonian's "Design with the Other 90%" and his World Pot concept. The tPod1 was funded through a Kickstarter Project but is available to purchase and ship now. The beta version of the tPod 5 is available now, but Rich shared information about the redesigned version which they hope to bring to a Kickstarter project within 6 weeks and deliver about October 2013. He also talked about their special Battery Pack designed to be charged by the low, variable voltage of the tPod1. He also shared that a single teacandle in the tPod1 only yields about 700mAh – only about half a charge for most common smartphones.

The Bad Cop also talked about debaere's (formerly interviewed for "CAM Ep. 246: debaere" and now co-hosting "GeoSnippits Reboot") "TB Race Entries Ready" blog post on the GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race. DarrylW4 mentioned being honored by the Michigan Geocaching Organization with their 2013 MiGO Silver Geocoin Award (more information is available in his blog post).

John Robb (of Cache At Night who caches under teamvoyagr and was last on "GGH 058: Caching by UV Light") for the sixty-sixth edition of the GeoGearHeads to talk about lights for Geocachers. Before that discussion began we heard from NativTxnabout her favorite weatherproof labels:

The Bad Cop also mentioned the "Weather Proofing Munzees" video by Cache Continuum and the vinyl Munzee stickers now offered in the Munzee Store. Following some great information from John Robb he recommended their blog for more information about flashlights, headlamps, and more. For those wanting to get into a little more serious information the Candle Power Forurms is his recommendation.

The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 tackle five questions from the GeoGearHeads' audience for the eleventh Randomize, and the sixty-fifth edition of the GeoGearHeads. The first question came from Minnesota Boy about the "GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race." Next was NoNameYet202 who shared that he purchased the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro to have a rugged smartphone and avoid the dry bags mentioned on GGH063. HotRod205 shared feedback about his use of Avery White WeatherProof Labels for Laser Printers 15513 for his Munzees in response to our discussion of QR Codes on GGH061. Going all the way back to "GGH Beta.40 Wet Device Recovery," TeamDAAK asked our opinion on two methods he used to recover wet feature phones in the past. The final topic came from Apty who was looking for more quality in cache hides and whether a rating system might help. DarrylW4 mention the poor response for the ratings on Opencaching.com and the availability of third party tools like GCVote.

For the sixty-fourth edition of the GeoGearHeads Veronica Belmont (of "Tekzilla," "Sword & Laser," and more) joined The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 to talk about location-based gaming and its future. The conversation began with a question from previous guest AirRaidFan (see "GGH 062: AirRaidFan" for his episode) about the potential of location without GPS. Then Groundspeak's Wherigo was brought up as an early attempt at a platform and Munzee and Quest'n Go as alternatives to Geocaching. Some AR games currently available -- including CodeRunner, Ingress, and Shadow Cities -- were mentioned, as well as some Layar based projects (Operation SC Revelation and stiktu). Options for control of objects in the real world like the Parrot, Griffin, and Fighting Walrus Radio were briefly discussed. The potential for new technology such as Google's Glass excited the panel as well as the possibility of apps like Zombies, Run! to motivate people to be more active.

We also talked about the "GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race" and its growing list of participants. There's still plenty of time to get more travelers into the race, share your tip, and have a chance to win a cool gift.

Referring back to the batteries on shows Beta.01 and Beta.02, they talked about using the PowerSkin PoP’n, Monoprice External Battery Pack and Charger, Energizer XP2000A, and Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries. Dry bags/cases were also suggested, including those from Overboard and Seattle Sports. A couple of bag mentioned were the PowerBag Backpack by Ful (reviewed on CAMR: PowerBag) and Timbuk2 Messenger Bags.

AirRaidFan joins us for the sixty-second edition of the GeoGearHeads to talk about his hides and why they might be favorites of many Finders. The discussion began talking about last year's "Falls of The Ohio Extreme Hike 2012" (GC3VDP3) event and the YouTube video by CWGladstone. Then we lead into his Earthcaches with the most favorite points; "Groom Mining District" (GC2GHE8), "Playa" (GC2GP44), "Mammoth Cave, The World's Longest Cave" (GCPAF5), and "Falls Of The Ohio" (GCPAF1). Next up for discussion were a couple of multicaches; "Bronze" (GC1DCJ2) and "Buechel Train Depot - 1898" (GCG9QT), followed by the "Ashes to Dust (a grave story)" (GC1B9J3) puzzle cache and "Arf's Patch Reef Beach (GC)" (GCKDET) traditional cache.

We also shared the status of the travelers in the GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race. If you've not had the chance to enter a trackable in the race you still have time to get that in and score points.

The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 take on QR Codes for the sixty-first edition of the GeoGearHeads. They covered some basics before moving into feedback. First was TheWoodenRadio talking about the use of QR Codes in the Maryland Geocaching Society's Cache Across Maryland event. Next was an email from juris1c about a cool use for a puzzle cache at the "Even Penguins Don't Talk To Me 2013" (GC43RZ3), and one log in particular to describe it for English Speakers. Cyphrex contacted us about creating a QR Code based hunt in his backyard for the children using QR Generator. The last bit from our audience came from Wayward Wanderers who mentioned a few things and asked about Munzee issues in his area. That was followed up by some discussion of the new Social Munzees. OBXGeek weighed in on that topic through Google+. Back on Geocaching, DarrylW4 talked a little about his long-overdue "Quick Trackable Logging By QR Code" blog post. For ease, QuickMarkwas suggested as the easiest recommendation for a QR Code reader as it supports many common platforms. The following tools to generate QR Codes were listed in that post:



The "GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race started on the first. As of the recording a dozen Geocachers (plus the hosts) had enrolled travelers in the race.

Welcome to the GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race! We've partnered with TB-Run.com to power the first GeoGearHeads sponsored race. The goal of these travelers is to meet as many Geocachers as possible along their travels while sharing Geocaching tips and tricks between March 1, 2013 and September 1, 2013. Each traveler earns a point for each unique cacher who submits a log to it. Since this is intended to be fun for everyone (as well as sharing some Geocaching knowledge) you are encouraged to submit multiple travelers, each with its own tip or trick. We hope you're able to participate by either moving a trackable item or releasing one yourself. Perhaps you'll be fortunate enough to do both! Here's how to enter the race;

  1. Acquire and active your Geocaching.com traveler. You can use a travel bug tag, geocoin, or any other Geocaching.com trackable (provided it can be set free and isn't already in another race), new or old.
  2. Fill in the traveler information. You may use any name you like, but please include the following for the mission;
    This traveler is a member of the "GeoGearHeads 2013" race and would like to meet as many Geocachers it can while encouraging the exchange of tips and tricks.
  3. Include your tip or trick (perhaps something you use frequently or something picked up from the show) and the following HTML in the description (click on the "source" button before pasting in this text);
    <br><br><b>Please try to keep this traveler moving!</b> Discoveries and events are highly encouraged as this traveler earns points for the number of logs from unique geocachers. If you have a favorite tip or trick please include it when you log this traveler. We love sharing tips with our fellow Geocachers to help improve the game and inspire the players!<br><br><i>Information about the <a href="http://cacheamaniacs.com/geo-gear-heads-2013-traveler-race">GeoGearHeads 2013</a> is available through the <a href="http://www.cacheamaniacs.com">Cache-A-Maniacs</a> website. <a href="http://www.tb-run.com/show-race.php?run=GGH1">Standings</a> are available through the <a href="http://www.tb-run.com/">TB-Run.com</a> service which powers this race.</i>
  4. Add a photo. Though not required, we’d like to see a photo of your traveler. (Instructions)
  5. Login to the TB-Run.com site. (If you've not created a TB-Run.com account, you will need to create one.)
  6. Add the traveler to the race. Make note of the traveler's ID (that "TB" number, not the tracking number) and add it to the "GeoGearHeads 2013" race. You will receive a confirmation page from TB-Run with the traveler's information. If that information is correct click the button to confirm.
  7. Attach a note or tag with the traveler's mission. We've created some optional tags to print and include with your racers. These PDFs are available in two sizes and two versions:
    Business Card Size: Color B&W
    Geocoin Insert Size: Color B&W
  8. Release your traveler. Being that this traveler wants to meet Geocachers an event might be the place to set it free. Discoveries are highly encouraged! We want these travelers to move so please don't keep the traveler.


This race was started simply to have fun among the GeoGearHeads audience. No prizes are expected but contribution of prizes are welcome. If you would like to contribute prizes please mail them to:

Cache-A-Maniacs
PO Box 1144
Troy  MI 48099-1144

If you have a prize which requires other arrangements (e.g. electronic delivery) please contact us at GeoGearHeads@CacheAManiacs.com. The prizes donated to the race will be distributed to the leading traveler owners based on the score for top travelers as determined by TB-Run.com. Each traveler owner is eligible for one prize regardless of the number of travelers entered. Our current Prize Pool includes:


The current standings can be found through the GeoGearHeads 2013 page on TB-Run.com.

For the fifty-seventh edition of the GeoGearHeads our hosts (The Bad Cop and DarrylW4) talked about using technology to support Geocaching events. For loading GPSRs during events they spoke about "" (check our show Beta.30) and "GSAK." We also talked about getting the information to smartphones including use of services like "DropBox" (check our show Beta.50). DarrylW4 generally recommends attendees use "Geo Bucket" or "Looking4Cache Free" for iOS (though he prefers "Geocaching with Geosphere") and "CacheSense Demo" or "Neongeo - Demo" (check our show 56).
We also received word from Groundspeak related to our topic of show 55. Thanks to Wet_Coaster and his question for kicking off the conversation in this show about the use of NFCs in Geocaching.
We also talked about the GeoGearHead 2013 traveler race starting next month. You can add your traveler to that race through TB-Run.com (quick tip; login to TB-Run before clicking through links).
