to our interview with
rklmbl of Northwest Arkansas. This caching couple first
purchased a Garmin
GPSMap 60CS on the recommendation from a caching friend, but
since upgraded to a Garmin
GPSMap 60CSx. They use GSAK to load their GPSR and a Palm
Tungsten E2 with Cachemate for paperless caching in
the field. Their most memorable early caching experience was on the
Mountain" (GC3D14) cache when they
underestimated the time needed to complete the find. They love
caching in the Dallas/Fort
Worth, Texas area for the
creative and varied hides. They would love to caching in the state
of California someday.
One of their favorite hides is the "Hillbilly Skirt Lifter" (GC1AZXF), but their
"The Very First
Arkansas Coffee and Nuts Event" (GC1KXQ5) provided their most
memorable event stories. On television, they enjoy watching
Griffith Show" and "Cheers."
We also heard from TKBeers (from CAM076) about his 600th Find.
Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener WVangler:
"Spice up the caching in your area by creating unique containers or themes. Use concepts familiar to you. For example, create replica props from your favorite movie using items from craft stores or items relative to other hobbies you have outside of geocaching. If they aren't waterproof, just design them as a part of a multicache. That way the cache hunt is not only more entertaining but cachers will remember you for your hides and learn more about your interests."
