Listen to our interview with step2626 of Oregon. This Geocacher has been
through multiple GPSRs through his roughly six years in the
activity. While currently using the Garmin Colorado 400t, he started with the Magellan 315 then moved to the Magellan Meridan Platinum. He dreams of caching in
both Australia and New
Zealand some day. His "Ten Star Turtle" GCPKAV and "Perfect Spot for a
Traditional Cache" GC1Q9BB are his favorite hides. On television he
enjoys watching the "House" series. At the movies he's a fan of the
"Indiana Jones" and "The Lord of the Rings" series.
Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener gelfling6:
"With summer, comes the need to keep hydrated. Now, Everyone will tell you drink plenty of water. But, water alone, and too much, can be just as bad. Most sports drinks provide electrolytes, but are mostly sugar, or other carbohydrate content. Energy drinks are sports drinks, with some form of stimulant, usually caffeine, which may provide quick energy, but for only short period. Caffeine is also a diuretic, which will cause the body to expel water, and too much, can cause dehydration. A good tip, would be a 50/50 mixture of a sports drink, with plain water. This way, the body gets the electrolytes, while the water is still absorbed, and not as bound to the carbohydrates (Sugars)."
