Munzee Player of the Week: Don Pulda (Pulda1)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Don Pulda (Pulda1), and he loves Germany. No, seriously. He REALLY loves Germany.

How long have you played Munzee?
Since January 6, 2012

How did you find Munzee?
I first saw the game in 2011, there was a Munzee zip tied to a tree, but I didn’t have the app so I didn’t scan anything until I was at an event in Louisville, KY. I downloaded the Munzee app right there and started playing.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I love to deploy Munzees and seeing the points come in from all my deploys. I love creating Mystery trails, ranking 20th worldwide with 603 Mysteries. I currently am ranked 28th worldwide as top dployer with 5363 deploys. I’m in 3rd place in Munzee trails. If I’m not working, I’m outside. Whether rain or snow, nothing stops me from getting out and playing this game. It’s an addiction. I made a goal to get myself a cap and deploy a day and have been successful for 470 days as of today and continuing to at least hit 1000 days in a row.

What is on your wish list?
To visit Germany. Anyone that knows me knows I’m a German nut(case). I would love to get together with Munzee players from Amsterdam, Switzerland, and Germany.

Tell us about yourself!
Well traveled, been to Germany 8 times, next visit will be to Munzee.  I enjoy and have enjoyed traveling to different states like St. Louis, MO, Franklin, TN, McKinney, TX for Munzee events, hitting the huge virtual fields and meeting other Munzee players. Last September I rode my motorcycle 24 hours to Canada and back just for a few Munzees and to get the Whomp Nation Munzee icon.  Munzee is about all I do outside of work, it’s a passion for me. I enjoy being part of Wisconsin Excursion clan. We have a solid team that goes for the top level every month and always make our goal.  I just hosted our first official munzee event with 17 attendees. Hoping to make another event later this summer. I’d love to meet more players and make our area known for a great city to Munzee in.
