The GC Doc and the oldest (and first) cache in Minnesota

docAward winning Vlogger The Geocaching Doc recently found the oldest and first Geocache in his home State of Minnesota, GC9FF, Alvin’s Phone Line (Placed 11/5/2000), and posted the video to his account on December 10th, 2016. Here is a link to the video, as the latest video from the Geocaching Doc to the right of this post obviously updates to his latest video when he posts a new one. With him in the screen shot is a new face on the Geocaching Vlogging scene, SoDakZak. As you can see, he can be zany, shown taking the “wear orange to this cache” warning on the cache page to the extreme. Here is the link to SoDakZak’s YouTube Channel. They made a great video together, check it out, whether it still appears on our sidebar when you see this post, or you have to use the direct link above. We’d  also like to point out, because we do not believe we ever have, that you can watch the Doc’s videos in full screen mode on this blog; you don’t have to watch them 4″ x 2″! See the red circled rectangular box in the screen shot above? Click that to go to full screen mode, and hit escape on your keyboard to exit full screen mode.

The Geocaching Doc at GW 14er in Colorado



Award winning Geocaching Vlogger Justin, The Geocaching Doc, will be attending GeoWoodstock 14er in Denver, Colorado this long holiday weekend. And you can meet him! He will be having a meet and greet (along with his entire family) at 2:00 PM on the day of the event (Sunday, July 3rd), at the Cache-Advance booth. There, you can buy one of his new Geocoins ($20), which he sold/is selling as a fund raiser for the family trip to Colorado. He will also be holding a drawing for great prizes while there (including some Geocoins we imagine), so be sure to stop by and see him, and Lisa from Cache-Advance, while you’re at it. The video above will perpetually update to his latest, and he plans on making and uploading several from GW.

And as an added bonus, The Geocaching Doc is back!

Back on this blog, that is. And we’ll bet he didn’t even know he was MIA. 🙂 When we interviewed The Doc in 2013, he agreed to provide guest content for us. We totally stole this idea from the once popular Geocaching Blog Its Not About The Numbers, which posted the content of Joshua, The Geocaching Vlogger. But then, about a year ago, our so called WordPress sidebar widget that displayed his videos broke. Then for several more months, our entire WordPress installation itself was acting up. That is now fixed, and we went out and found a different sidebar widget that works with the latest version of WordPress, and you can see his latest video is once again displayed on our sidebar. Be sure to visit his YouTube Channel and subscribe. He recently passed the 5,000 subscriber milestone; a major accomplishment for which we offer our congratulations.

Geocaching, with The Doc on the side

doclogo


A funny thing happened, on or before June 12th, 2014, when we went to post a Geocaching Doc video on this blog. We found we could no longer copy and paste a description of a YouTube video! We were using Firefox, so no problem, lets try Chrome. Nope, didn’t work there either. Internet Explorer, same thing. We’re sure Google has their reasons, but it is a fact you can no longer copy and paste the description, or “about” a certain video, as they call it, on YouTube.

So not to be deterred, and inspired by another Geocaching blog, which posts the latest video of another Geocaching Vlogger to their blog, we threw The Geocaching Doc’s latest video up on the sidebar of this blog via a WordPress Widget. Works like a charm, and when his latest video came out on his RSS feed, it updated to the newest one, replacing the previous one, just fine.

So we’re moving the Geocaching Doc to the side! The sidebar, that is, on the right hand side of this blog. Whenever he posts a new video to YouTube, it will immediately show up on the sidebar of this blog, via an RSS feed. Underneath the little thumbnail image on the sidebar, will be the Title of the video. When you click on said thumbnail image, the video will open in a large lightbox window  in the middle of this webpage. In other words, the whole webpage will be dimmed out, and you will see the video full sized in the middle of your screen.

We’re sure just about everyone has seen the so called “lightbox technique” all over the internet, and many just didn’t know what it was called. Now you know, and we’ll even give you the link to the wikipedia page on the subject, for further reading! We have discussed moving to the side with The Doc, and he’s OK with it. We too are OK with it, and feel it might even help this blog to load faster! A win-win all the way around. So you can, as you have for almost a year, see the latest from The Geocaching Doc right here on this blog!
