Thanks for pointing it out, Bill. Now we can have our trolling move there!

Either way, I liked how the focus of the article was on the community and the activity and not the technology. Not very common for geocaching articles.

Very cool! I got a voice message today, missed the call (I am now caught up in jury duty - which screwed up my lunch caching - off topic). But the voice message said, hey you know Silent Bob, he's in the paper, and if you would have caught up with those guys last week.... Anyway, very nice article, and now some on the jury are looking at me wierd, as I said "Hey I know those guys".

LOL - that's why I haven't told any of my normal friends, one look at the pics and I'll be the one getting the weird looks!

Jury duty - good luck with that....

Was anyone going to scan in the physical article in case the link dies? Or is that violating copyrights or something?

If you want the photo to be included, copy and paste it to a Word document and create a PDF file.

For those who don't have software to create PDFs, I recommend PDFCreator.
