This past week in the Lakeshore Weekly News, jREST was featured in an article about caching in the Lake Minnetonka area. The journalist and photographer went along with him to a RickRich cache.

The article is on the front page of the web paper for now, but I imagine it will be bumped into the "old articles" area in a few days. If that happens, I will try to update the link accordingly.

It's a well written article with a lot of information. It's obvious that the journalist took note on what was happening in Eden Prairie and decided to do an article in the Minnetonka area. He even contacted the parks manager from EP.

The article was the main headline article in the physical newspaper too.

Very nice article and indeed he is now famous. My neighbors, whom I've taken geocaching, first told me about the article - so today, I picked up the paper and agree it was a great article - we should be seeing alot of newbies soon out caching.
