Yeah, dealing with property owners could be a pain in this game. The Confluence Project at least has somewhat of a higher point to it. It's not just a game for computer geeks/yuppies with too much time and money ;)
On another note, I want to play. I'm from central Wisconsin, and want to get a team together...anyone else up for it? I could easily take care of central/northern wisconsin in a weekend, getting quite a few of them.
