Actually, I initially debated (with myself) the idea of submitting alt.geocaching to alt.config.
alt groups are far easier to initiate, but I was afraid that this might further disperse information if/when the rec group was approved.
I'n not in any way opposed to an alt.group, most of the groups I read are in that hierarchy. I'm even willing to claim a little used group for our own if needed. alt.furry.weasle.pet.pet.pet* works every bit as well as rec.outdoors.geocaching if it's being picked up by most news feeds.
I just thought we should take the high road, since this is a very legitimate request. We can settle for alt later on if we must.
I'm not comfortable with posting geocaching related content in sci.geo.satellite-nav, it seems like irresponsible behavior to me.
* I have no idea if AFWPPP actually exist, but I wouldn't be surprised.
