Stats Bar for Flag_Mtn_HkrsListen to our interview with Flag_Mtn_Hkrs of Flagstaff Arizona. You might recognize the name from his Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" we read on episode 125. His name was derived from the "Arizona's 20-20 Challenge" website. He's currently caching with a Garmin eTrex Vista HCx but started with the Garmin Vista. He uses a Palm i705 purchased used off eBay with Cachemate for his paperless caching. He loads both the GPS and the Palm through GSAK. He recalls his doubt about caching as looking for his first geocache -- "Rock 'n Root" (GCJTTB). His favorite location to cache has been the Verde River but he hopes to cache the Grand Canyon to find the "Anasazi Ruins" (GC83C6) virtual cache. He had an interesting story about his trip to the "A.J.A.C.S. 5th Annual Campout Event" (GC1KX3J) and always enjoy the A.J.A.C.S. events. For entertainment, favorite movies include "Blade Runner," "Indiana Jones" series, and "Star Wars" series. On television they used to watch "Dirty Jobs" and "Mythbusters" before dropping cable.

Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener bookboy*:
"Instead of a pair of tweezers for removing micro cache logbooks, invest in a pair of needle nose pliers. They are a good size for removing logbooks, but they can be used for many other things that tweezers cannot."
