Re: [gpsstash] Another Variation

I like it, I think! ;)

I think as long as we stick to hiding and finding a physical object, we're
keeping consistent enough with the original idea to make sense.. However, I
still think the logbook should be the basic item for a stash (it can be the
most interesting part of the stash sometimes).. If there's some way to stick
a notebook inside (or attached to, even) a garden gnome, I don't see any
problem, I dont think.. It might be hard to keep up with, if it moves alot..

I think I prefer the idea of the item that moves between stashes -- who
knows where it could end up.. this has potential, for sure.... I've already
done it actually, one of the things I took from one of the oregon stashes is
now in my newest stash in washington... If you would have posted this 3 days
ago, I would have thought to actually note that in the logbook of the new
stash :) -- it didn't occur to me at the time...

Remember there never was any limit to what you put IN the stash.. You can
put instructions to a different sub-game in one (dave: wonderts,
cyberstashes, etc), a movable item, letterbox stamp (as someone already
has), etc. etc. etc.. How bout a seperate logbook that gets moved between

This is what I like, imagination within the existing framework we already
have! There's plenty of things to do!
