Many geocachers are now getting on board with periscope. It is very addictive and a great way to participate and communicate with geocachers all over the world. You can tune in to see geocachers you already know like Joshua the Geocaching Vlogger, Scott Berks from the Chicago Geocaching Podcast, or even crazy cachers and podcasters from across the pond. We have made a few broadcasts ourselves and doing such we have learned a few things along the way.
- two or more is better – I have tried doing it solo and it was very difficult. Think of broadcasting, using another device to find the cache, while also trying to communicate with those watching – its difficult
- pick an interesting cache – doing an LPC is bad enough but finding one and trying to make it interesting doesn’t work without something else to say as well
- mind your language – Certain people like Joshua can speak all day long and keep their language clean. Other like Scott Berks or, well us, can’t seem to go more than ten minutes without dropping some less than G rated language
These are just a couple of the things that have come up. We are by no means experts or even proficient yet. Good thing the videos only last 24 hours before disappearing. We are going to keep periscoping while we cache as we find that it adds a new level of fun to the game. We will try to improve the videos and make them more entertaining as we go.
We hope to see more geocachers get on periscope and share their adventures. We hope to try and expand what we are doing on periscope by trying some general discussions. We have no idea if that will be interesting enough but there is only one way to find out right?
