This week on the Chicago Geocacher Podcast: We razz THUSA and wonder where he’s been! Scott “teaches” us about the festive Jewish holiday of Purim. Walt has a LEO encounter with Scrappy Scout. We talk about Leap Day and the various cachers vying for a 10-Icon Day! We coin a new geocaching term! There’s a recap of Cabin Fever II and we remember Davy Jones!
