Player of the Week: Dottie Pratt (daysleeperdot)
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 Dottie Pratt (daysleeperdot
Who are you?
Dottie Pratt aka daysleeperdot 🙂
Where in the world do you live?
Just outside of Kansas City, MO in beautiful Greenwood.
How long have you played Munzee?
Since October 2012
How did you find Munzee?
I was attending a large caching event in Iowa in April of 2012. I had noticed a group of people around a sign and decided to check it out, figuring I would find an event cache. Instead, it was a sticker (a BrawnyBear munzee). I scanned it with a QR app and it gave me a link to Munzee. I disregarded it until November 2012 when I was attending another caching event at the same venue with StealthRT and convinced him it was a good idea to give Munzee a try. He reluctantly went along with the idea and we munzeed in the drizzling cold rain all the way back to Kansas City.
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Tough question. I mean, there’s just so much that I enjoy! I absolutely find it exciting to collect a new special icon and earn a different badge. Then there’s the road trips – and there have been some AMAZING road trips with friends and family going to Munzee events and such. Plus, I find it comforting in meeting like minded people who understand and agree that it IS fun scanning stickers who have all been extremely friendly. Unfortunately, there is just no way to narrow it down to one thing.
What is on your wish list?
- To get a job at Munzee! 🙂
- Make it at least into the top 50 (a reasonable goal).
- Put my passport to use and travel to Ireland, Germany, Australia, and other new and exciting places. Plus, get some munzees and caches while I’m there, of course.
- To finally get the elusive “Glitch” badge – that would be amazing!
Tell us about yourself!
I love to travel, and in my opinion, I don’t get to be on the open road enough. I’m also completely fascinated with Tiny Houses and hope to build and live in one in the near future. Then there’s my very understanding husband Corey (BillyBickle) along with my two amazing kids (ArtCrasher and IzzePop) who don’t fully understand my Munzee habit but go along with it anyway, so that’s cool. I also have a rescued Olde English Bulldogge- Tank, who puts up with the props for my Eventzee photos.
Other hobbies include:
- We own 2 Jeep Wranglers and have enjoyed taking them off-roading many times.
- Camping, Hiking, and Exploring
- Organic Gardening
- And caching, too
Any last words?
A BIG thank you to all who nominated for POTW – I am honored and super excited because I get a new badge (doing my happy dance)!!! Thank you! Thank you! Also, thanks to all who have places munzees for me to cap. I have seen some amazing places and have a lot of great memories and stories to go along with a few 🙂 . But a BIG thank you to all the local KC Munzee players, all ofwho are amazing and continue to grow Kansas City.
