Show 409.0: Dave Ulmer Reminisces

On our geocaching podcast today, we have a very special interview to share with you. We chat with none other than Dave Ulmer, the father of Geocaching and hider of the very first geocache.

We also have some super-cool caches that Dave probably never dreamed of back in 2000, a great story about Hidden Mickeys and geocaching, more games and contests, an update on the WWFM X, and much more.

    Awesome show as always 🙂
    Special thanks for doing re interview with Dave Ulmer – it was very interesting indeed 🙂 – thank you Dave for all you’ve done 🙂

    You’re show helps keep me company at night too when I can’t sleep 🙂

    We are looking forward to DorsetGal & Geodog’s Disabled Friendly WWFMX this year.
    We are hoping to get a Geocoin and Pathtag for the WWFM – does anyone have any to trade or sell from last year please? We went to DorsetGal’s WWFMIX last year 🙂

    It was good to hear you give a shout out to her, especially as she is, unfortunately, still in hospital – we are all thinking if her and pray she will soon be home 🙂

    Thank you Podcacher 🙂
