S4E9: Mingo, the World’s Oldest Active Geocache

Do you know what the oldest active geocache is? With over 2 million active geocaches in the world, the honor of this title goes to Mingo, GC30. With nearly (at the time of release) 23 years worth of history, there are a lot of stories to tell about it. Join me as I talk with fellow geocacher, Ryan Semmel, as we discuss the history of Mingo and take a look at some of its stories.
