What makes Munzee stand out among the sea of smartphone apps is its close ties to healthy activity. While the Munzee community is deeply devoted to ever-evolving technology, we also encourage our players to continue to get out into the world and adventure. Whether it’s the urban landscapes or countryside, Munzee takes its players all over. Greg Dryer (GAD64) is this week’s Player of the Week and his love of the wilderness is fueled even more by his love of finding greenies. Recommended by several former players of the week, player Boogirs (Rachel W.) had the following to say about GAD64:
Greg welcomed myself and my husband to the area thru Munzee when we started deploying in his area and became a great friend. He has taken it on himself to welcome new players and has started up his own “Munzee 101” class for new and old players alike. He shares all the tips and tricks he’s learned with players of all experience levels! He’s always available to help everyone with questions while they learn the game. He even shares a birthday with Munzee! I think he embodies everything that is good about Munzee and is a wonderful player to go cap and deploy with, or even to just talk about Munzee. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of the title “Player of the Week”…
Who are you?
GAD64 A.K.A. Greg Dryer or one of my FAVORITES… Pappi
Where in the world do you live?
I currently reside in Republic, MO USA
How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing Munzee just shy of two years.
How did you find Munzee?
Like most people I started playing that “other” GPS game first. I was reading a log on one of my caches OOPS should I say that word HEHE?… and they stated that they were out looking for some weird QR thingies called Muncee or something like that and I scanned my first one that afternoon and have been addicted, obsessed, call it what you will, every since!!!
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I like the ease of it versus the other game. I also enjoy making people smile by watching their faces as they hear that wonderful DING when they find one of my Munzees! And there is always the joy of getting people up off the couch and getting active! I deploy on a lot of walking trails so people get a chance to get out of the car and cap!!
What is on your wish list?
My Wish List? Where to begin? How about 6 points for First To Capture? AT LEAST ten points on Mysteries. Just the stats that are required on the clan war page such as captures, points, deploys (not Deploy Points) and the like and updating every half hour. Oh and world peace???
Tell us about yourself!
I could spend all day with that one but I will keep it short as possible. When I found Munzee I knew it was the game for me!! I basically quit doing the “other” to concentrate on Munzee. At first I wanted to see how well a player could do without being a Premium Member and I almost got into the top 100, like 102 or close. But then here comes the overseas wave and that went by the wayside. I became Premium and would, and do, encourage every SERIOUS player to do so as well!! It has A LOT of perks!! I have given classes on Munzee in my home town and attended several events at which I have met several GOOD people who I consider to be good friends!! After a while being in the game you sort of grow into a community. Not to get too mushy but I feel as if some of my Munzee friends are closer than family!! Can you tell I REALLY LIKE Munzee??
Other hobbies include:
Other Hobbies…. WHAT? are hobbies????? LOL Spending time with the grandkids, like going Munzee hunting, maybe fishing every once in a great while, as long as there’s a Munzee nearby to cap. And lastly going to the dirt track races.
Thank you friends and MUNZEE ON!!!
Greg was kind enough to share his social, so cap away!
