RE: [gpsstash] Re: Thank you, Dave Ulmer, for your wacky idea.
I don't think that there is -currently- any drama regarding Dave and GC.com. My understanding is that, at various times a few years ago, things may have been said/done by both parties that caused some mutual alienation. However, in the time that I have spent with the guys at the website and with Dave, I have gotten the distinct impression that it was mostly miscommunication and that there remain few, if any, hard feelings. I suspect that Dave's name has not been restored to the website in part because there have just been too many other things to do. Plus, there could be some legal reasons why they need to keep it somewhat anonymous, for self-protection.
As far as I know, I'm the only person who has gone geocaching with both Dave and Jeremy. (I don't believe they have ever met one another, either.) They are both really nice guys and each deserve heaps of credit for the genesis and success of the game.
"The history of our game is rich and at times dramatic. Apparently, the drama continues over at GC.com. They happily promote your video and Jack Peters' book, The Complete Idiot's guide to Geocaching, both giving credit to Ulmer for the first cache hide, they but refer to Ulmer as "a someone" in their own brief history published on their site."
