Part One:
From the Geocaching Forums
Deciding Whether a New Cache Should Be Premium or Not

Do You Set Your Caches Premium Member Only?
Benefits of Premium Only?
Are Premium Only caches less likely to get stolen?
Geocache Visibility – Premium or All?
Newbie Question: Why Mark a Cache as Premium Only?

Part Two:
New Years Goals – Not Resolutions
Why do them?
Google – The more often you remind yourself of a goal, the more attuned your brain becomes to information, people, events, or opportunities that support it. And because human memory needs external support, write your resolutions down somewhere where you can look them up easily and often.
What is ours?

Chat Room Can Add Their .02c During the show.
Learning through reverse logic.

Tyana – Not being prepared for the weather, especially in extreme places like AZ or Alaska.
Not having the proper equipment, clothing or supplies can get you into serious trouble quickly….
I also tell someone where we are going just in case.

Viewer Feedback or News Stuff:


Hello Andy:

Given the upcoming Canada Day souvenir, I am encountering the stereotypical “eh” in geoevent titles. Did you once indicate that there is a U.S. city where people who live north of a bridge also use “eh”, and people who live south of the bridge do not? I believe the bride’s may be in a Great Lake’s state, and the bridge’s name contains “mac”.

Thank you

Stevenw54

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 217

Geocache Types and Sizes – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 217
Part One:
Message Center now accepts additional file types

There are many good reasons to make use of the Message Center, because there is so much to talk about when it comes to geocaching:
It’s a great way to plan geocaching outings with your friends.
A good way to ask a friend for suggestions about the best geocaches in your area.
You can get a hint from the cache owner for an especially tricky hide.
And, because the Message Center is available in the Geocaching® app, you can submit your answers for Virtuals and EarthCaches right in the field.

We know that geocaching is better when players communicate with each other so we wanted to make that easier. The challenge, after all, should be in the adventure and not in the tools you use. That’s why we took some time to update and improve the Message Center.

With the latest update, you can now send file types such as pdf, doc, or docx* in addition to images to other geocachers. We also cleaned up the look to make it all about your content. If you like even less clutter, you can clean up your inbox by hiding any message.
*This functionality is currently not available in the Geocaching® app.

We added the ability to forward all messages to email. By toggling this setting “on,” messages you create in the Message Center on Geocaching.com and in the Geocaching® app will automatically be forwarded to your email. Forwarding messages to your email makes searching for previous messages much easier. To enable email forwarding, select the settings button in Message Center and check the Forward messages to email box.

Additionally, we made the Message Center a lot more reliable by fixing several bugs. There had been some irregularities with message being displayed as unread, that were read, and conversations out of order. These have all been addressed with this release.
Now you can concentrate on the content of your message – rather than the bugs. Let your friends know about the updated Message Center by writing them a message right now.

Viewer Feedback or News Stuff:


Hi Andy and Amy,

How do you deal with differences in physical limitations when geocaching with friends and/or family? I am pretty much “able-bodied” but my friends are not so much. A terrain of 2.5 is easy for me but too difficult for one of my friends. I haven’t figured out the secret to deciphering the Terrain levels especially when a local cache that requires walking through tall grass and one in the neighbouring town has a steep incline trail are both listed as 2.5. I feel bad when my friend can’t make it to GZ. I also feel bad for finding the cache because I probably wouldn’t get another chance to find it if I called off the search on account of her physical limitations. Do you have any advice?

Thank you,
Paula (pjhugs)
