Meet Paul &Dana

Paul &Dana GillinWe’re Paul and Dana Gillin and we love geocaching. When we went looking for a book to help us become better geocachers,we were surprised to find that no new how-to titles had been published in more than four years. That’s why we’re writing The Joy of Geocaching.

We aren’t veteran geocachers,but we are a professional writer (Paul) and editor (Dana). Paul’s been in publishing for 25 years and is the author of two books about social media:The New Influencers and Secrets of Social Media Marketing. If you’re interested,here’s more about Paul.

Dana has been a technology editor for six years,most recently at TechTarget. She’s also a house rabbit enthusiast,and her BunnyBlab blog attracts hundreds of other bunny lovers each month.

To write this book,we interviewed scores of the world’s most successful and enthusiastic cachers as well as geocache owners,extreme cachers,community organizers,educators and even businesspeople who use caching to promote their companies and destinations. We accompanied people on power-caching expeditions and visited with local groups. We traveled all over America in search of log books in Tupperware containers.

In the process,we discovered the geocaching is more than a game. To its most enthusiastic players,it’s a passion,a love affair and a life-changing experience. We heard hundreds of wonderful stories and the packed as many as we could into this book.

The Joy of Geocaching teaches the ins and outs of a game that counts more than three million players in nearly every country in the world. But more importantly,it’s about people connecting with each other to find health and happiness through a worldwide treasure hunt.

Please contact us if you’ve got good stories and tips to share. And if you’ve read the book and would care to post a review on our reviews page,we’d love to hear from you!

  • Hello again,

    Hmmmm,now that I see your profile pic at the Eiffel,I even more want a piece of the action,heheheh ;-}

    AND,if I’d known both of your professions,I’da more carefully edited my ‘reply’s’.

    I DID note some lil’typos and spellos in the part of the document you’ve published so far,and will work for food to proofread some more of it.

    I’m the heavy reader anal-retentive type who’s eye catches the typo/spello/grammo on the tri-fold brochures in the foyer of the restaurant on the way into lunch outa the corner of my eye (and wishes I could lose the ‘talent’as it causes too-long pauses in my reading of novels).

    Now,best wishes on providing the cache community with something better than a ‘GeoCaching for Dummies’book!

I can see your blog needs a little improvement,I advise that you take time on reading Darren’s secret book,its full of secret information of how you can earn more money out of a blog. I recommend that you checkout this site called ez-dollar-income (you can find it on google –its top in the search engine) –a friend recommend it to me and indeed had help me a lot on making money on my weblog.
