Are you a PodCacher? Do you know what a PodCache is? Hereís a cointest to help you figure it all out!

Sonny and Sandy of Team PodCacher interviewed Rockin Roddy this week to hear all about Todieís Wild Ride. Check out their podcast radio show here (itís free and you donít need an iPod to listen):
http://www.podcacher.com/

Listen to the most recent show and play along for your chance to win a Look Twice geocoin.

The rules, regulations, and other details:

What can you win?
A Look Twice geocoin. Two lucky winners will have an unactivated coin mailed to their address of choice.

Who can enter?
Anyone and everyone!

How can I enter?
Send your answers to the 5 questions below via the TeamAmaroo email address.
Do not post your answers here! All answers must be emailed to TeamAmaroo.

How will I know if my answers are correct?
I will post a list of geo-names with correct answers. If your answers are not correct, I will email you and you may try again with new answers.

How long will the cointest run?
You can submit answers up and until Tuesday, May 5, 11:59pm EST. So one full week to enter.

How will the winners be chosen?
I will put all eligible entries into a hat and the winners will be determined by a random drawing. The winners will be announced Wednesday, May 6.

---------------------

The 5 Questions:

1) What is a PodCache?

2) What is the GC number/code of the first PodCache published on geocaching.com?

3) What are the listed coordinates for the first PodCache published outside the United States?

4) What are 2 goals of Todieís Wild Ride mentioned by Rockin Roddy in the PodCacher show #214? (more than 2 were given, you only have to list 2)

5) Rockin Roddy encouraged listeners to watch the bike safety videos produced by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. What is the title of 1 of their videos?


Email your answers to TeamAmaroo. Good luck and remember to Look Twice for Bikes!

The link takes me to podcachers but when I click to listen to 214 nothing loads. Any Idea what I need to do?

When I click on the show name, a new window opens and the show plays using QuickTime. It does take a few minutes to load. You may need to download the QuickTime plug-in.
http://www.apple.com...ktime/download/

You can also listen to the show through iTunes, if you have that downloaded. Search for PodCacher.

Hope that helps!

edited to add:

You can also right click the show name, save the mp3 file to your computer, and play it using Windows Media Player or another mp3 player.

That's pretty much the extent of my knowledge on audio files, so if anyone else has a suggestion feel free to chime in!

We only have one near us that I can think of. It's called My Other Hobby (GCZXQ7) and I think they set up the puzzle so that anyone around the world can log it if they listen to the podcast and get the clues. I listened to the podcast, but never went to get the local cache. Got to put that one back on my to-do list!
