I didn't know whether this should go in Media Relations or Park Relations.

Ghoulish find has Dakota County setting rules on geocaching

Semi-clueless reporting. "It was part of a series of caches -- hidden items that geocaching participants find using handheld GPS devices -- planted around Halloween 2008 but never retrieved."

My wife interupted me from an important meeting just to tell me about this article.

I would guess the reporter had some space limitations. At least I hope that's the reason for the incomplete story. An interview with the ghoul Laughing who placed the casket would have been part of a thorough job of reporting.

The funniest part about this entire incident is that some of the same people that wrote in the log that this was, THE, COOLEST, CACHE, EVER, are the same ones saying that maybe some line, however percieved, had been crossed. My gosh.. what's up with that? Huge whatever.

BTW, I've finally scanned the entire log book and plan to eventually post the logs for this cache on my BLOG.

Hope you had enough TP for the meeting!! Wink

Oh, and I especially liked the last comment on the article, "Rather have... Geo-catching than gunslinging thugs."
