Practicing Geotourism

Graeme McGufficke a.k.a. OzGuff

Graeme McGufficke a.k.a. OzGuff

I spent an hour on the phone yesterday with OzGuff,the prolific cache owner from Asheville,N.C. Oz,whose real name is Graeme McGufficke,has more than 1,200 hides to his credit,including an incredible 800 active hides. He’s hidden every kind of cache you can imagine,including a series called Atypical that’s entirely made up of offbeat containers.

One thing Graeme’s hides have done is draw cachers to the Asheville,N.C. area. Officials in Asheville recognize that,and they’re working cooperatively with him to develop what he calls “geotourism.” In this short sound clip,he explains the value of geocaching as a way to promote a region.
