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.
