GeoWoodstock VI On The Horizon!Mar 07, 2008

We finally finalized our flight (dis sum great alliteration, huh? :)) and hotel plans this morning for GeoWoodstock VI and the countdown is now on!

The Geocaching Plane

We’ll be arriving in Sacramento mid-afternoon on the 22nd and leaving early on the 27th. This gives us 4 days to enjoy the geo-gathering and the surrounding areas. In addition to Sacramento we’re hoping to get to Yuba City too.

We’ll be staying at the Heritage Inn Express in Roseville which is about halfway between Sacramento and Wheatland where the event is to be held. We got the room for $54. a night with our CAA card. As long as it’s clean it will be a good deal. There are a few other cachers staying there and at this price it won’t take long to fill up.

Whereigo LaunchesJan 03, 2008

Groundspeak launched “Whereigo” today and it looks to be another great addition to their lineup of GPS based, fun products.

From the website:

“Whereigo is a toolset for creating and playing GPS-enabled adventures in the real world. Use GPS technology to guide you to physical locations and interact with virtual objects and characters.

In late 2001, after running for over a year, Jeremy Irish and Elias Alvord came up with an interesting challenge: How could they take their favorite adventure games and bring them outdoors with GPS technology?

The idea is that you can move around in the real world using GPS and a handheld device to experience media-rich content relating to your location. The experience can be a tour guide, an adventure game or anything dreamed up by an author.
