Rest Stop


I’ve really enjoyed listening to your show… it makes me smile each time!

As an American, I actually burst out laughing at your rant in last weeks show… very funny!

I’ve also enjoyed hearing your misconceptions about our Rest Areas… I think they are a bit more than what you described as a Layby… I’ve attached a picture of one from here in California… they are more or less the same throughout the country…. with the exception of New Hampshire where the rest areas also have the state liquor stores… I wonder who thought that one up?

Thanks for the show!

Ask Doctor D…

The Monkey King – Are only a few words when logging a cache acceptable? For example, I read many log that are simply “Another find for me” or “easy find”.  Given the cache owner has put a bit of work in to hiding a cache, should finders write more than a few words in the log?
