Re: [gpsstash] Two new stashes / more commentary

I like the name geostash too. Has a nice ring to it.

I am going to make up a stash here in Ireland on the weekend. :)

Good grief! The game has only been going for less than a month, let it
evolve. I would have though that the name Geostash would have satisfied both
camps. It still has the word stash in it, so is recognisable. But it also
isn't stash.

I had a problem with the word stash right from the start. Actually the stash
that I left is labelled "GPS Treasure Hunt" because I thought if someone
else finds this bucket they are going to think it is something else. Maybe
that goes back to when I was sitting on a Jury in a drugs case a couple of
years ago. One of the culprits did excactly this, buried his dope in a
bucket out on the farm somewhere. I think he might have even refered to it
as his "stash"

I for one will vote FOR Geostash. It is another word other than stash, even
though stash is in it. And I think most people would realise that the prefix
Geo would be a bit high tech for the average druggie.

Keep up the thinking Dave, I like your creativity.
