RE: [gpsstash] Stamps for your own Geocaching Logbook
I'd say we're still defining the sport, so it's pretty chaotic at this point (read: no rulebook). None of us would say, "No. You can't do that," - especially since Letterboxing and Geocaching have a lot in common.
I won't speak for everyone, but after you do a few caches it's not the stuff that is the fun part about it, but the find itself. I'd be happy with just a logbook cache hidden somewhere (or a stamp & passport). Others may believe otherwise. I do have a collection of "booty" on my desk though, so even I may be fibbing :)
We're all trailblazers in this sport, so feel free to be the first at dropping a stamp in your cache. Others may follow your lead!

I was reading this article here: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smithsonian/issues98/apr98/letterboxing. html
About how they leave personalized stamps in the geocache so the hunter can stamp his own personalized log book as he locates them.... I thought this sounded pretty cool. The hunter can still sign the logbook there...but he gets to bring back a "record" of his find in his own type of log book. Does this sound like something that would be cool to do in our sport?
