- I’ve hit over 85,000 Geocaching miles. Suck it, Lotrat.
- Calipers pointed out I need to review GeoBuddy and compare it to GSAK. Stay tuned.
- Somebody was musing about a North SD County meet and greet. Let’s get it on, folks.
- I’m still looking for more interesting spoofs to target for my “Don’t Do This!” series. Take a look at my profile and send me your ideas if you want to have them immortalized with the “Frown-O-Meter”. (See my GC profile and caches for more details)

In the first article on Re-Introducing the 3rd Player: The Reviewer I just covered a few basics. This time around I have a bona-fide Reviewer who was kind enough to indulge me a few questions on your behalf. So here you have it, 20 questions with your local reviewer, Marko Ramius.
Well, local if you’re in San Diego/Orange County. 😉
Marko, thanks for agreeing to participate here, the folks should get a kick out of it. The general populace only sees your name at the top/bottom of a cache log under “Marko Ramius, Published”. The first question on their mind is “Who is Marko Ramius?”

Have you noticed the “GPS” profile data feature on Geocaching.com lately? This is a bit of a sneaky back door for a feature I have been clamoring about for ages:
Proper GPS reviews by the people who use them
I don’t know why they’re hiding the feature; it is not terribly well advertised, but you can access the main GPS review pages, here.
You can select the manufacturer and model, then see what other folks have to say. Since these are ALL Geocachers I think you will find a more appropriate set of commentary than in the general intert00b space.
If you are daring enough to add your own review, just view your profile and check for this on the right hand side:
There have been some questions in the forums on this lately, but nobody’s looking at the hundreds of reviews for every device already on Geocaching.com.
Enjoy, and Happy Caching!
