The Mad Cacher goes all Angry Birds on Garmin/Opencaching.com
Having plundered all the local caches and not being in a position to travel far from home due to Cumbyrocks clone #3’s imminent arrival I haven’t been out much. My recent acquisition of an Apple iPad has been a good distraction from the geocaching withdrawals I face daily and one of the best distractions is the game Angry Birds. The game essentially has you firing angry birds at the pigs (literally) who stole their eggs. It’s a fun game that is worth trying out.
And it seems that The Mad Cacher has gone all Angry Birds on Garmin/Opencaching.com. The blogger/cacher has recently sent out a message that reads:
Hey <insert name here>,
Just a few days ago Garmin launched a brand new website that is basically their attempt at controlling our hobby.
That’s right, they’re trying to hijack the official Geocaching website and control the market in order to sell more GPS units!

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a little ticked off about this and I would love to hear your thoughts. Do you have similar feelings about it or are you fine with it?
Please leave a comment below the post. I love reading your thoughts and conversing with all of my Geocaching friends.
“The Mad Cacher”
It seems “The Mad Cacher” is quite, well, mad about Garmin introducing Opencaching.com and is rallying the troops to boycott opencaching.com.
Whilst I have been a little sceptical about the introduction of opencaching.com I’m not sure they deserve such an extreme reaction and a call to boycott. Geocachers will vote with their feet and I don’t see Garmin as producing something so evil that it requires organised destruction. But kudos to “The Mad Cacher” for being passionate about his cause.
