S3E20: Wherigo Geocaches Explained

A wherigo is a unique type of geocache. They have a physical container like a traditional cache and immerse you in unique experience a bit like an adventure lab. They are truly one or a kind. However, they also present some unique challenges. From trying to create a wherigo to trying to load the cartridge, these geocaches are known for frustrating geocahers. In this episode, I talk with fellow geocacher, Steve Miller, about wherigo geocaches. We take a look about how to create them, how to play them, and how they compare to adventure labs.
