Listen to our interview with TheBadCop of Tacoma, Washington. He's know as TheBadCop on Twitter where he collects responses for the "Geocaching Question of the Day." He's currently using an Garmin Oregon 200 but started with a Garmin eTrex Legend. He want control over his GPX files so he runs all his Pocket Queries through GSAK before loading the GPSRs. His favorite location was found during his recent milestone at the "Mission 9: Tunnel of Light" (GC1169) Project APE cache. He would like to revisit France to go caching. His favorite hide was the now archived "My Chores: My Shopping List" (GCNCN3) unknown cache. For entertainment he likes "Star Trek" and "Star Wars." He also like watching football on television. We also had the pleasure of caching with The Bad Cop and xpunkx on July eleventh.
Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener sparrows_gold:
"When going on a 'FTF' hunt, if you're the lucky one to find the blank log - don't rush to log it in right away! By waiting a few hours or the next day, this keeps more people going for the hunt and the cache owner will get more hits to his cache! There is nothing worse than publishing a new cache and only one person finds it for the next week!"

Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener CSRA Cruisers:
"While on a numbers run, use walkie-talkies instead of cellphones to communicate with your geomoblie. They are much faster than trying to dial by phone."

Listen to our interview with MillerDude of Las Vegas, NV. We interviewed his brother (condor1) on show 130 while another brother (the real thing) will be on episode 135. He started caching with a Garmin Nüvi 200w and still uses that for vehicle navigation. His primary Geocaching unit is now the Garmin Colorado 400t. He uses GSAK to load the cache info into his Nüvi. On television he watches "Hereos" and "Prison Break."
Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener Networkcacher:
"For rapid cache repairs and updates I keep a variety of ready-to-place geocaches (micro, regular, ammo can) in my trunk. This way if I need a replacement log, stash sheet or all new swag I can grab it out of the ready cache. It also helps if I find that perfect spot calling out for a cache, I've got one all ready."
Also mentioned in this episode was the "The alpha of the Geocachers of The Alpha and Omega" (GC1V3GB) event called in by a Listener.

Listen to our interview with GeoJunkie of Bellevue, Nebraska. This Cacher who found the activity through the "Where's George?" service. He uses his Garmin Oregon 300 and Garmin Nüvi 650 for his caching. He start though without a GPSR completing two caches before buying his first GPSR -- the Garmin eTrex. For field notes though, he's using the TextMarks option finding it more convient than the field notes within the Oregon. He has more than one location he considers to be favorites; Colorado (notably the Garden of the Gods) and Iraq. His two favorite hides are the "100 Possibilities" (GC12RJT) and "Patriotic Rock" (GCQEVF) caches. On the motion picture front, he enjoys the "Saw" series and movies by Adam Sandler. On television he watches "Family Guy," "South Park," and "NASCAR." His musical tastes include "Linkin Park," and "Rush," and the "Trans-Siberian Orchestra."
Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener ZeppoCruz:
"When caching in heavy brush look for a cacher's trail. It may be a few feet farther, but it will save some blood from bushwhacking and thorns."
