Of course, the next few people trying to find the cache were unsuccessful...the hoodlums had tossed it into the woods. I went back, found it, placed it back again, but evidently was spotted by a trucker (I think) who was also a ways down the parking lot. Well SP was called, possible bomb reported, SWAT team blew it up, and I was notified by Hollora about what had happened. I spent the rest of the day shaking in my shoes thinking I was going to be surrounded by 100 police officers on my way home from work.....thoughts of the ending of the movie Bonnie and Clyde passed before my eyes. One of those stories you just can't make up..... Geez, Jake, you've got the memory of an elephant ;-)
    HehHeh . . . thought you would appreciate me dredging up that old story . . . but about the memory . . . entirely selective. I can remember things like this, but have the hardest time remembering important things like my wife's birthday (I finally learned to remember that it is Feb. 1st and not Groundhog's Day as I did for the first five years or so of our marriage), taking out the trash every Friday or other important things.

    Actually I hear the cops are just biding their time and waiting for Dan to make another move . . . supposedly they've got the FBI and ATF involved now.

    Hmmm . . . rest areas . . . I can recall some interesting stories from rest area caches . . . in particular there was this one time at band camp . . . I mean this one time at a rest area near Ellsworth . . . ah, another story, another time, another geocaching experience.

    Glad you appreciate the laugh . . . but as have no doubt seen by now . . . the truth can be stranger than any fiction this Irish tongue can tell.

    A demo cache is a secial cache just for the event that isn't lsited on GC.com - it can be used to teach newbies or demonstrate a cool hide. If anyone places a cache, make sure you email Mike Auger at mauger@androscogginlandtrust.org with the final co-ords. He needs to make sure we are not in sensitive spots before it's listed.
