Thumb Drive

posted May 26, 2014, 6:53 AM by Darryl Wattenberg

A cool addition to this year's swag bag was a 512MB thumb drive. On that drive was information about the the event and several GPX files with caches in categories like "11 Icons In A Day," "Grandma Moses Geoart," "Q's Geowoodstock Caches By Major Boothroyd," "Top 20 Favorites," "Top Virtuals," and more. The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 talked a little about the benefits and drawbacks of distributing data like that at an event.

During the drive back from Geowoodstock, The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 talked a little about the Lab Caches and decided it was a good conversation to record and share. They had just completed the "Geowoodstock XII Lab Caches" and talked a little about the long term lab caches a the Groundspeak HQ and STEMLandia (which they couldn't remember on-the-spot). There is a list of upcoming events with their own lab caches as well.

Perhaps the most unique booth at GW12 was Sharon Mangan (better known to Geocachers as mamacache) who was selling her coins to raise money in her JDRF 2014 Burlington Ride to Cure Diabetes. The Bad Cop had the chance to talk with her and a gentleman matching all those donations!
