Listen to our interview with madkiwiman of Matthews, North Carolina. His
geocaching name was inspired by the Mad Max

Also mentioned in this episode is the Geocaching 12 of 12.
Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener Influence Waterfowl:
"For various reasons a cache may need to be moved. I have had to do this when the grounds crew cut back the growth that hid you from the muggles on a near by trail. When faced with moving your cache leave a forwarding address when possible. Just write the coordinates to the new location on a slip of paper and put it into a zip lock bag. Place the bag where the cache was originally hidden, such as under the usual pile of sticks. Then if a cacher with the old coordinates comes to find the cache they will not be hit with a DNF. They can follow the forwarding address to the new location. They will thank you just like they did me! Remember to retrieve the bag after you think that there will be no more cachers with the old coords seeking the cache. That way it will not just become geotrash!"
