GeoGearHeadsThe guys talk about Geocaching.com Travelers again for the one-hundred forty-third edition of the GeoGearHeads. The Bad Cop, DarrylW4, and debaere (of "Only Googlebot Reads This Blog") pick up the conversation started on "GGH 131: Travelers I" (and they'll likely continue with another show in the 2015). JerseyEric shaped a good portion of this week's discussion with his voicemail including a question asked of the GeoGearHeads about their discovery trackables. Limax, Anteaus, and Team_Pugatch shared their answers to that question. The Live Q&A was also active during the show this week and some of the live viewers had their feedback used in this episode.

Before that we'd heard from JR and Juju about the GSAK to Evernote Macro. That was written by XpunkX who was the guest on "GGH Beta.09: Evernote." It's an easy method to move caches from GSAK into Evernote.

Congratulations to Wet_Coaster for submitting the winning answer for this week's question. Thanks to CoinsAndPins.com for their donation of this week's gift!

GeoGearHeadsFor the one-hundred forty-second edition of the GeoGearHeads we talk about using Evernote as a tool for Geocachers – a topic last received a full show for GGH Beta.09: Evernote. Scott Berks returns to talk with The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 about it, and field feedback from fellow GeoGearHeads. "Giz" called in his pick of a Sliver Gripper and Buckmasters Nano Light (and sent a photo). juris1c shared his picks of a Fenix E05 and Victorinox Manager (and his photo). Then we moved on to emails from pinkunicorn, Kittykatch, juris1c, and JerseyEric (well, he called in a voicemail actually). We also heard from many live viewers (including nativtxn and Wet_Coaster) through the Live Q&A.

GeoGearHeadsWe talk about the tools Geocachers shouldn't be without for the one-hundred forty-first edition of the GeoGearHeads. Pete of The Amasons and the "the Podcast Show" and geocachingvlogger – famous for his YouTube channel – join The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 to discuss some of the options. Team_Pugatch sent us his thoughts about the Maxpedition M-4 Waistpack (which he already created a video to share). He also wrote in about the Rite in the Rain pen. JR & Juju also like a bag as an essential tool – the "Cabela's Chest/Waist Pack." Tanjent wrote in that gel pens are great on the trail. Kittykatch shared that her top tool would be her bum bag (though she listed several other top picks) while brilang picked his brain as the top tool for the trail. Subwaymark's list was also read, including the multitool.
TAZ427 wrote in about using OpenStreetMap in c:geo and on his Garmin GPSRs. He grabs maps from Mapsforge.org to use offline in c:geo, and OSMMaps.com for the Garmin GPSRs.

GeoGearHeadsThe topic for the one-hundred fortieth edition of the GeoGearHeads is geocaching without relying on a data connection. debaere (Only Googlebot Reads This Blog) returns to talk with The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 about how and why to pre-load data before going into the field. debaere's favorite app for geocaching on Android is Locus Pro for it's offline mapping abilities. He also mentioned the "Ontario Trails Project" (check out GGH060) as a great resource to find trail maps. Darryl talked a little about using MOBAC to load open-source maps into Looking4Cache on iOS (instructions).
