Stats Bar for AggieJWPListen to our interview with AggieJWP of Missouri City, Texas. John used his college (Texas A&M) mascott to build his screen name. He started caching with the Garmin eTrex Legend but has since upgraded to the Garmin GPSMap 60CS. He's using the Geocaching WAP site while in the field to look-up cache information. He'd like to hit Port Aransas, Texas region for its high cache density. He's created the "The Anti-Purist Lazy Cacher Series" (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, & #8) of park-and-grab caches. He recent made the "W.E.G.E. #5 + Houston Cache Awards+Dec. B-Dayz" event his 500th cache. His favorite movies are "A Beautiful Mind," "National Treasure," and "Tommy Boy." He enjoys catching "The Office" on television and listening to "Shane & Shane".
Also mentioned was the "Eternal Bumps of My Spotless Mind" blog.

Stats Bar for pdanticListen to our interview with pdantic of Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Steve is known for his articles on the "The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW)" titled "iPhone 101: Geocaching with an iPhone 3G" and "TUAW Review: Geocaching iPhone app." (He's also writing for "Gadling.") Earlier though he ran a website called "pdantic.com" (via Archive.org) about PDAs. His first GSPR (eTrex Summit) was acquired as a replacement for a cycle computer. Later he upgraded to a GPSMap 60 CS but now relies on nothing but his iPhone 3G. While he misses the accuracy of the 60CS he loves theĀ convenienceĀ of the iPhone while on the road for business. Now he's drooling over the Oregon 400t. He's looking forward to the next generation location technology but fear hearing an increase in number of incidents resetting Podcacher's DWAB counter. One of his favor finds was "Travel Bug Cafe" (GCK21R) where he launched his "Go Rocky! Go Rocky Go!" travel bug. His favorite location for caching though was New York's Central Park where he ran into another couple from Sweden (Hemulen). He likes listening to "Steely Dan," and watching "Star Trek (TOS)," "Fringe," and anything from "Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K)." Enjoy this episode with a Cacher who hits the trail while on the road.

Stats Bar for the.james.gangListen to our interview with the.james.gang of Western Washington State. We spoke with mom of the five person family team who got their start in Geocaching through her parents and a multi-cache. Their caching started with just a Magellan Explorist 500 but added a Garmin eTrex Legend and use both with EasyGPS. Despite the GPSRs though, it doesn't prevent their getting lost following an FTF attempt (and now she remembers to mark her car). She's still looking forward to find the Mission 9: Tunnel of Light Project APE Cache and the ORIGINAL STASH TRIBUTE PLAQUE. They've enjoyed doing the Kitsap County Challenge and visiting Groundspeak. But don't miss the stories about their encounters with muggles and other Geocachers!
Also mentioned in this episode was the GCinOHIOGeoFest at the Miami County Fair Grounds in Ohio.

Stats Bar for ReefPilotListen to our interview with ReefPilot of Minnesota, but who geocaches all over North America. He's a Scuba diving enthusiast and commercial airline pilot. He's currently using the same Garmin GPSMap 76CSx that he started his caching. He's using LoadMyTracks on his Macintosh to load the Geocaching.com Pocket Queries to his GPS, then Mac CMConvert to prep the PQ for the Palm. He caches frequently in the Washington D.C. area which is also one of his favorite caching destinations. He's also a fan of the Pacific Northwest and California. Perhaps the most unique location was Quito, Ecuador where he place the "UIO Basilica - Venezuela y Carchi (GC1CVMW)" cache. He's still looking to cache Hawaii, and the other 25 states that he hasn't found a cache yet. Some favorite movies include "Airplane," Indiana Jones ("Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"), and "National Treasure." On television he enjoys "Law & Order" and "The Office."
