I agree with Brian Lang.  I've geocached in plenty of heavy rain storms (FTF during a tropical storm, for instance!) but heavy snow makes the drive to the cache unsafe.  Thunderstorms?  Shouldn't be in the woods or picking up a lamppost skirt!

I would rather find a really good geocache that someone has put a lot of time into than hide a so-so geocache. But I would rather make one then hide one.

Love that you're going to get a scoutmaster on the show and want to teach the Geocaching merit badge. I can't wait till my 5 year old is old enough for scouting. As an Eagle Scout I look back at those years as the best times I've ever had. It's funny how when building my "camping/hiking/geocaching library" the first books to add to the shelf were all Boy Scout merit badge books: pioneering, wilderness survival, first aid, and orienteering.

Geocaching is like dating someone you really like, first it's all about the hunt, then after a while it's about contributing, getting feed back learning, then you want to really want to invest into the relationship and put true quality in it. The beautiful thing is as long as you continue to do all three your relationship gets even better with age.

A quick question for tomorrows GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast show. 

If you wanted to take a class in geocaching or would suggest a class you think all geocachers need most. What would it be? 

We will bring it up on Thursday night's show.

Thanks again.
