Hi folks in Southern Minnesota. I received an email from a Mr. Russel who is looking to do a story in Southeastern Minnesota. If anyone is available and would want to help him out, give him a call or email him. Thanks for the help. Bobhiker.

Hi,
My name is Matt Russell and I'm a features writer for the Rochester
Post-Bulletin newspaper. I've just recently heard about geocaching and was
interested in possibly doing a story on it. I think this might be of wide
enough interest to maybe get an editor's approval without local contacts,
but I was wondering if you know of anybody in Rochester, Austin, or
southeastern Minnesota that is involved in geocaching and would willing to
be interviewed for a story? You can either reply to this email or call me
back toll-free at 1-800-562-1758 ext. 712. Thanks in advance for any help
you can give! Looks like fun!

info, etc. for anyone else who does geocaching in SE Minn. You can either

I've e-mailed him (I see he's registered here already as "Matt"). I'm probably available for phone consultation (MnGCA stuff, basics, etc) but suggested that he actually meet with someone to cache with. I probably wouldn't be available to do that w/o at least meeting him somewhere. I would suggest FarmerTed as a person more apt to meet with him on short notice.

He mentioned to me that he was waiting on approval from editors (those crazy editors, I used to be one!) Cool so we'll wait and see.
