Stats Bar for CaptainmathListen to our interview with Captainmath of Pike County, PA. We ran into CaptainMath during the "Geocoinfest 2008 - Pittsburgh (GC17H2A)" and spoke with him about Geocaching in Education during Episode 79 of the "Geocaching Podcast." His first GPSR (Garmin GPSMap 60CS) was purchased mostly to assist in navigation, but he's now upgraded to the Garmin GPSMap 60CSx for Geocaching. He's looking toward the next upgrade and possibly one of the Garmin Oregons. He's a Macintosh User but runs Windows and GSAK for his Geocaching. Since his PDA died though, he's using his Apple iPod Touch and MacCaching to keep track of cache information. Some of his favorite Geocaching took place during his attempt to complete "The Pennsylvania All Counties Challenge (GC10YN8)." One of his favorite cache finds is the "Rocky River Cache (GC1903)" for its rich history and cool view. For a brief period this past summer, he was rivalling the find rate of CCCooperAgency and nearly burned himself out on Geocaching. As for event, the "Tri-State Treasures" events are a favorite, in part due to its location near the "Tri State 1942" benchmark which marks the meeting of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. He's a fan on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Penguins. "A Beautiful Mind" was probably his favorite movie of all time, but on television he enjoys watching "The Office," "American Gladiators," "Star Trek," and "Night Court."
