Not sure where best to post this...
Hi everyone... I just wanted to pass on that the Maryland Geocaching Association has recently taken on a few large projects. In addition to the Annual Cache Across Maryland event, we are looking forward to a new and large "geotrail" sponored by the Maryland Municipal League. Groundspeak has given it their full support and we look forward to it's success and the possibility that other states may take on projects like this.
Basically, 78 towns in the state of Maryland have passed resolutions (that's right, they've regulated themselves) to place and maintain caches within their respective boundaries. These 78 caches will be activated on 1 January 2009 and the first 500 folks to find and log a total of at least 22 caches (2 from each of 11 regions within the state) will be honored with a limited edition Maryland Municipal League Geotrail coin.
If you find yourself visiting Maryland in the near future go ahead and check some of these caches out. Google MML
If you have any questions, go ahead an visit the Maryland website at www.mdgps.org for further updates and info.
See you on the trails,
