to our interview with
Ashallond of Ft. Smith, Arkansa. Though he knew of Geocaching
first, he didn't begin caching till he bought an iPhone 3G and downloaded
the iPhone Geocaching
App. To round out the phone as a geocaching device he also
added MotionX-GPS and
ToolKit. His favorite find so far was "Making the Connection" (GCHNF5). He dreams of
caching in the Northwestern
United States, Western Canada,
Ireland, and Scotland.
He was surprised to find that his "9-9-9: The Cache!" (GC1YBXW) cache which
was posted to commemorate 9-9-9 was found 9 times on the 9th. In
his little free time he enjoys playing "The Kingdom of Loathing."
As for movies, "Harry
Potter" and "The Lord of
the Rings" are favorite series. A favorite TV show was
Our "Tip for the Seasoned Cacher" comes from Listener Clubmud1:
"When looking for a difficult cache in the woods and you run out of ideas where it could be, look for a branch or log that is slightly out of place, such as barkless, log from a different type tree or a sawed log, where others aren't. I have had a number of finds this way when I have exhausted all other ideas to find a difficult cache."
