Geocaching saves lives?!

Recommended Posts

Here is a good spin on geocaching. Just after grabbing a cache in the forest behind our local Community College, we decided to follow the newly created path around the campus. As we rounded the corner and climbed the hill, we found a log, smouldering. At first we thought it was negligence, but it seems to been possibly spontainious combustion. We dumped our water on, but as the breeze picked up, so did the glow on the log.

Sad part was, when I called public safety for the college they told me everyone "was busy dealing with a traffic situation" I'm sorry, but if you don't make this a priority for someone to come out with a 5 gal bucket or something, then im calling the fire department. Ten minutes later, 2 public safety workers found us. I can't imagine the devastation of the 43 acres behind the school, let alone the school and nearing neighborhoods. . .
