Hey Mark!

Hope all is well over across the pond! I wanted to send off a quick email and see if you and your beautiful listeners would help and support me to become the Grand Prize winner for the Michelin Geocaching Quest “spirit of adventure” contest!

The news hasn’t actually gone public, but on Sunday afternoon MichelinUSA will post the top 10 pics on their Facebook page to be voted on. Yours truly made it and that’s why I need your help. All I need from you guys is a like on the picture I entered. That’s it! The winner will be chosen by  picking the one with the most “likes”.

Here are the links and the pic that I entered. https://www.facebook.com/MichelinUSA

There will be an evolution to Lab Caches in 2015.

There will be more promotions along the lines of the 2014 Skoda and Michelin promotions.  Also there will be  new GeoTours in 2015.  Related to this are thing sites.

We go on to discuss the Geocaching app and how it will be changing in ways that will help those new to Geocaching.  We also discuss the future of the app for Windows phones.

We discuss the reasons behind Premium membership to Geocaching.com being more expensive in the UK
