Our forty-fourth beta show talks about Earthcaching and the gear
to help you. Before we talked with ClickChik we had a stack of feedback to
address. yraft kicked off the feedback mentioning the
Lightly campaign in response to our Beta.42 show. debaere called in to let us know that the
Google speech recognizer runs on the phone as of Android 4.1, a
correction to DarrylW4's comments in Beta.43.
Lafitefl and Nighthawk700 shared their stories relating to
that show as
well. Finally we fielded questions from TeamOrville and *TnT* on CacheSense for Android. Moving into Earthcaching we
started with some questions by Lafitefl which we answered using "3.2. Logging of Non-Physical Geocaches" and
"5.4. Creating an EarthCache: Additional Tips"
of Groundspeak's Help Center, and "GSA EarthCache Guidelines." We also heard from
kristaandgeoff and Nighthawk700about what's in their Earthcache
All seven of our contributors have been entered into the holiday giveaways. Thanks to Magellan, listeners all over the world have the chance to win an eXplorist GC. Brand 44 Colorado was also kind enough to provide a Geomate.jr with Update Kit, Geomate Large Log Cache, and a Geomate Gnome Cache for those within North America. Along with those four awesome gifts, the hosts of the GeoGearHeads will be pitching in a few items themselves to be given away through a drawing on Episode Beta.48 (November 29, 2012) (details available here).
