S3E10: (Mostly) Live from MOGA 2022

I hit the road (with family in tow) and head to Clark County, IL to attend MOGA 2022. The theme was “Big Things Small Towns”. Spanning across three small towns in Illinois, who are know for hosting some world records for largest things, such as the world’s largest rocking chair and world’s largest gavel (just to name a couple), the theme fit very well. What an amazing time we had exploring the area with adventure labs highlighting so many large things, going through the GPS Maze, and talking with other geocachers at the event. Join me this episode to hear about our trip and hear from other geocacheres while at MOGA, including geocacher, KingAKF, the host of the MOGA.
