We received this today:

Quote:
I am a reporter for the Mankato Free Press. Could you please email me with the names of some active geocachers in the Mankato coverage area. This includes New Ulm, St. Peter, Le Sueur, Waseca, Blue Earth areas.



Saw a feature on one of the news channels yesterday & thought this would make a great feature story.



If possible, please provide names & phone numbers.

THANKS

mickey


If you're interested and live in or near one of the areas mentioned then please drop me a PM or email with some contact information and I'll pass it on to the reporter.

Thanks!

So far I've received no replies on this - is there NO ONE in the area that is able to chat with a reporter for a few minutes?

I met with the reporter (Micky) yesterday at 7 mile creek in the shelter, which was the site of my very first cache (virtual cache Dedicated Trout Stream). We talked for over an hour and she took some pictures. I hope the interview gets published. Smile

Ramsey63,

Thanks a ton for getting on top of this! I have done that "cache" as well and due to KB's event there a few years ago many of the others in the area. Great park!

Great article! I like this quote:

A GPS can have a margin or error up to 20 feet, Geary said. Its taken me to a lot of interesting places.

Makes it sound like the margin of error is the reason for seeing interesting places. Smile
