    OK, here's the scoop. I just got done talking with my editor and I explained to her that there are a whole lot of Maine geo-cachers who would really love to read the on-line version of the article on geo-caching as well as check out the additional photos that they typically run and she says that the article should be up sometime this weekend . . . I know this sounds familiar, but she said there was a problem in scanning the photos for some unknown reason.

    Yeah me . . . I'm a bit "old school" when it comes to photography . . . plus you can pick up a really good 35 mm and lens for a lot less than digital. For a long time digital cameras weren't taking very good photos either, but that's changed in a big way . . . it's just that I'm still not willing to part with the change when I have two perfectly good 35 mm cameras . . . and one that I need to fix some day.

    And at long last as promised . . .

    Unfortunately they only ran one other photo and it wasn't all that exciting of a photo . . . I thought I had a really good one of Bearfirefighter with the backdrop of the Knox Hills which they opted to not use.

    In any case, I like the format of these articles better as they didn't scrunch up the text to make it difficult to read (i.e. the lingo.) They also included a short sidebar on the number of caches in Waldo County which didn't run in the print version. While the PDF versions are nice in a pinch, these should be easier on the eyes to read.

    Incidentally, Noreasta and Bearfirefighter when I get the photos back I'll make sure you get some . . . or maybe I'll just be evil and post them here! Thanks again for agreeing to the interview.
