Have I been living under a rock long enough not to have noticed the release of this book?

I'm really curious to see what has been written about the sport.

Dunno about you, but several of your caches are living under rocks.

If you go to amazon.com and stick in the title, you should find what appear to be 3 geocaching books, none of which are actually out yet.

I would be most interested in seeing who these geocachers are. I have read some information about this on forums elsewhere in previous months but I haven't really taken any time to think about it.

I would love to see a book come from someone that has cached all over the world not just in a single area of a single country. I don't think you can give much information other than the basics that way.

I would love to see some examples of great caches including pictures. That would at least make it worth the time of those of us that aren't "new" to this sport.

I'd like to read some fiction. Serial killer baits unsuspecting geocachers with real treasure, then knocks them off. geo-org callled in to solve puzzle because police are baffled. Saxton gets too close to killer and disappears. Ciphers, blood, sex, handsome leading man plays rolll of FTF addict with love interest that solves the crime.

Something like that. Hey, if I had any idea how to write, I would.

Well you won't be getting any cameo in this novel as you are "Not Addicted."
