Stats Bar for MonkeybradListen to our interview with Monkeybrad of an ivory tower high atop Monkey Manor in Middle Tennessee. We spoke with this high number cacher who started Geocaching looking for something to do on the third weekend in that foreign city. The pursuit has earned him about a dozen GPSRs through the years, and nearly ten thousand finds. He and his wife, Scoot the Frog, are know not only for being experienced Geocachers, but for their terrific events. We'd love to check out one of their Halloween events (held the first weekend after Halloween, see GC15QEE for this last one). He also talks about two of his favorite hides -- McGuffin's Bluff (GCZ0ZF) and Sledgehammer (GCGNET). You'll want to catch this interview with a Cacher looking for those hidden treasures that the caches bring you to and collecting the experiences along the way.
Also mentioned in this episode was the January 1, 2008 interview of DarrylW4 and Firefly03 on the Geocaching Podcast.
