Geocaching Podcast Profiles: Oh Beep! Geocaching Podcast - OBGCP96

Back in October 2013 the GeogearHeads podcast ( did an episode about the History of Podcasting ( This episode featured Rob Walch, from media hosting site Libsyn.

Without the above podcast episode there would be no Oh Beep! After hearing it, we had a "we can do that" mentality.

To take things full circle. Back in April 2016 DarrylW4 conducted a series of interview with geocaching podcasters. Profiling each one and why they do it. Those profiles were never released to the GGH feed.

This episode is the audio from the Oh Beep! session. The hope is that someone hearing this will have a "I can do that" moment and start their own podcast.

We'd like to thank the GeoGearHeads and DarrylW4 for all they have done to help us over the years.

Archive “classic” caches without considering putting them up for adoption.

Here are the steps to transfer the ownership of your geocache:

  1. Log in to your Geocaching account and visit the adoption page.
  2. Enter the GC code (GCXXX) and click "Lookup"
  3. Enter the username of the new owner and click "Go"
  4. Click on "Send Adoption Request"
  5. The potential new cache owner will receive an email.

Where to list your caches for adoption

Ask Dr D..

From ScrapCat…

How does Dr D feel about people who "forgot their pens" so they didn't sign the log but claims the find?

GGH Tips…

When approaching a Chamber of Commerce or Tourism Bureua for support of your #geocaching event or trail, have numbers ready for how it can help the local businesses. Craig of the West Bend Chamber of Commerce shared their experience on GGH196 and that's a good place to start. You can find that through the link to the show notes below;

Cache Or Trash…

A logbook (bit of paper), in a plastic bag, wedges into the crack of a wall.  No container.

He didn’t place a cache for the visit of StaticJay
