I support it. The message traffic in various other forums (several
Yahoo! Groups, mailing lists, and private geocaching Web site message
boards) demonstrate sufficient interest in the topic to support a
newsgroup.

There is no existing newsgroup suitable for the quantity and nature
of discussion expected.

sci.geo.satellite-nav is too serious for the recreational discussions
expected on rec.gps.geocaching and thus has inhibited geocaching
discussion in that newsgroup.

alt.satellite.gps is, well, an "alt" newsgroup.

I prefer rec.gps.geocaching to allow for future support of other
recreational uses of GPS.
