Re: [gpsstash] Rules, Rules, Rules...Just like Football...


Ok Matt,

Its true that I am looking ahead a bit with my databaiting scheme. When we
all have Wireless Internet/GPS/Cellphone devices, the cybercache will seem
more real. Just follow your handheld, when it beeps you are there. Rewarded
with a $25 gift certificate to the store you are standing in front of...

All it takes is 4 numbers, get something, put something?

Dave...

P.S. Revealing Codewords is just like any other type of spoiler for a
geocache. If gets out of hand you just move the coordinates and change the
codeword...
