PUNKY GPS GETS THE STEAM BUILT UP FOR GEOCACHING (From hackaday.com)
It must be summer - muggles, who never venture outdoors, are finding all sorts of suspicious packages.
When geocaching goes awry (From technical.ly)
“While the Dover Police Department understands the recreational activity of geocaching, we ask that creators of geocache finds create items that are more obvious in nature,” police spokesman Mark Hoffman said in a statement.

From Wet_Coaster The little-known Canadian version of American football
The sports of American and Canadian football both developed in the mid-19th Century, evolving from the British game of rugby.
While the two forms of gridiron are in essence the same game, there are some key rule differences. For example, Canadian football has larger pitch measurements, and one more player per side.
"Canadians are acutely aware of the cultural differences [between the two countries], and acutely interested in maintaining their own separate cultural identity," he says. "The CFL is one way they can do that."
David Holmes, 51, a lifelong fan of Vancouver's CFL team, the BC Lions, happily points out that the first recorded game of Canadian football took place in 1861, eight years before the first documented American football match.

Not having a backup plan when doing a challenge.

What do you think about 'throw down caches'?

Junes Ey Up Me Duck Challenge, how did we do?
July challenge: there are 5 different sized caches you can find: micro, small, regular, large and other. Easier challenge see if you can find 4 different sizes during the month. Harder challenge see if you can find an example of each on the sane day.
Hi Guys,I hope you get a chance to read this out we are Aussies and we always get a good laugh when you guys do the accents :)Managed to complete July's Ey Up Me Duck challenge in one day. We headed out to do some caching on the 17th of July with the plan that by the end of the day we will have achieved a 5 terrain cache earned the souvenir and also made our 700th find. The cache we chose as our D5 was called Animal facts : Giraffe, which was also our 700th find. It wasn't too difficult as we had scoped out GZ a few weeks earlier so knew exactly what we needed to make the find, we were delayed slightly when grabbing this cache as the council workers were grading a nearby dirt road. As a bonus we managed to find all 5 cache types in the one day.Anyway the caches we found were;MicroSmallRegular (Our 700th find)LargeNot chosenAll up it was a successful afternoons caching with 7 finds in total.Keep up the good work guysByeDamianD&V&L
From Dave DeBaeremaeker..
Hey BananaSauce and Doctor D!
I have finally gotten my ducks in a row and managed to qualify for an Eye Up Me Duck challenge.
I did not manage to find all the types in 24 hours, but that was due to there being a 14 hour drive from North Carolina to Canada (Canada oi! oi!) in the middle of the attempt. However I got four of them (unknown, micro, small, regular), and managed to introduce 3 new people to geocaching. The time from start to finish was just under 30 hours.
I have a few large caches on my list, so I should get the 5th type before the end of the month.
This was a fun challenge. Thanks!
From Lucie Melen..
Saw this and thought of you... While in London at the weekend, found a cache here, and thought you'd like it!
