Munzee Player of the Week: Don Abreu (DerbyGuy)

Munzee is so much more than a 21st century scavenger hunt. It’s a chance to explore the beauty of the outdoors, a test to your senses and ability to notice tiny details and most of all it’s a rich community of players that help build something no one ever thought possible. This week’s Player of the Week, is Don (DerbyGuy) who like many Munzee players had to help build a local following. Don finds time for Munzee in between work, but he can’t wait for retirement so he and his dog Zoey can take their Munzee adventure even further. Read below to get to know Don a bit better:

Where in the world do you live?

I live in Redcliff Alberta Canada

How long have you played Munzee?

As of today I’ve been active 605 days. I’ll definitely be renewing December 3 of this year, Most likely sooner.

first How did you find Munzee?

Like most of us I was browsing around for caching apps. I downloaded the app, checked it out, but when I looked at the map I had to zoom out, and then zoomed out again. I had to laugh, the closest Munzee was over 100 miles away! So I thought to myself, this could be a new thing to try. I went to Munzee site and had a look and I was hooked. I bought a pack of the first magnetics. Emailed a few friends and let them know to keep an eye out for a new game in town! And wow we have around 7000+ local now!

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

The points has to be the clincher. It wasn’t long after I started playing that there were limited time specials on the map and that did it for me, and I think everyone here too. It became very competitive for all of us!

What is on your wish list?

I would have to say I’m looking forward to Munzee’s third birthday in July. Maybe something like a special triple layer cake where you cap three times and then it bounces off? Hint hint hint!!

Tell us about yourself!-5

I am 46, but not much to tell. I have worked 27 years at Goodyear manufacturing now. Single guy, with a faithful companion Zoey, a Lab-Sharpei mix. I’m looking forward to retirement in 2017 and my big mission after that is to go to California to meet the most of the fellow players. Maybe score 200,000 points lol? I love spending time with all of you in groups, Munzee madness and rookie Munzee club, which is almost at 100 members now! I enjoy trying to help new players see the fun and answer as many questions to get them all out there to grow the world!

What are some of your other hobbies?

I have done caching and used to be into demolition derbies. Now Munzee has to be my favorite thing to do in my spare time. It gets you out an about to enjoy the air, see the sights and meet a few of the other players. I have been seeing a few new names on my feed. Very impressed!

Don was kind enough to share his social with us, so cap away!
