Long way to drive to be skunked... (and some bear spray)
Wonder if they will come up north to my backyard?

I wonder how widely they're publicizing it.

I saw a side column ad on geocaching.com and I also heard it advertised on a local radio station.

They attempted to post a comment to both s4xton's and my personal website under fairly unrelated comments. s4xton's blog software's comment spam filter caught it. I didn't approve it because I didn't feel it had anything to do with what they were trying to post it under.

So it may be fairly widespread if they are resulting to tactics for "advertising" such as those.

Well, I gave it a shot this morning, and was at ground zero at 9:05am. I don't think anyone was there earlier. Then four other people (including team Lizard of Oz and a couple of non cachers) started to file into the parking lot where the coords took us. After about thirty minutes of looking like wierdos (insert joke here), one of the guys at the bike shop came out and talked to us about how there was a sticker in the front window a few days ago, but he hadn't seen it since. We think someone came and took the winning sticker prior to today, either knowing or not knowing its releance.
So, since the winning stickers are probably placed in advance, be on the lookout for MontanaGPS stickers while out and about.

I don't see any stickers in that photo, and I even enlarged it...

Yesterday's card is now listed as FOUND

It's a different picture now! There used to be a shot of the door with a whole bunch of stickers and the Montana sticker was at the bottom.
