On our geocaching podcast today we have an interview with GeoAdventurer, the man behind a new geocaching calendar. You’ll hear about all sorts of adventures from this outdoor guide. We also share news about the Geocaching Adventure Lab app, new country souvenirs, our classic 12 Days of Christmas song and much more.
Today’s puzzle is a brand new one from right here in upstate New York. I apologize for the delayed posting. I’ve been very distracted by the end of the semester, trying to get ready for Christmas, and a non-geocaching puzzle hunt I got sucked into that is burning through every last brain cell. I’ll stop there before this turns into the:
As you may or may not know, I wrote a children’s geocaching book entitled Sophia Finds a Geocache, my mom illustrated it, and we published it through CreateSpace via Amazon in November 2017.

Most micro containers are not good. The leak. They rust. The logs are mush.They seem to shout I was put here for no other reason than a cheap, fast find. There is only one exception.It is the PETling.We really gained respect for this geocaching-perfect container when we started spending more time in Florida. Southern Florida geocachers know and understand many of the areas where they place caches will flood many feet annually. The caches may very well see hurricanes. Many of the hiders there have embraced perfection and made our caching adventures better with these containers at their hides.They also
