07/20/08 – This Week In Geocaching

Posted in In The News on Jul 20, 2008

Here are a few interesting Geocaching related news articles that we came across this week that we would like to share, just in case you missed them:

There was a great article posted this week by The Unofficial Apple Weblog that explains with concise instructions how to go Geocaching with your iPhone 3G. This is not a software app but a how-to using the internal iPhone technology. Check it out here.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the recent announcement from Garmin regarding the upcoming release of the new Oregon series GPSr. This series uses touch-screen technology, 3-D map viewing, sharing capabilities and like the Colorado it can download all the cache information allowing paperless caching. You can find out more at this great visual overview located here.

A suspicious package in Florence, Alabama caused a bit of a stir this week. Transportation workers were inspecting the O’Neal Bridge when they spotted a container and called police. Bomb squad members arrived to check it out and found a Tupperware container wrapped in duct tape. Apparently the Geocache was not clearly marked and located in a high-risk location. You can read more here.

Geocaching is quickly being recognized not only as a fun activity but as an educational one too, especially for kids. You can read about an upcoming Girl Scouts camp that is adding Geocaching to list of activities here.

Podcacher, the weekly Geocaching podcast, celebrated 3 years of podcasting this past week. Congrats on your third birthday and 174 great issues!

Keep on cachin’!
