Forgive my noobness if I am wrong but this isn't Geocaching. There are no coordinates given. it looks like you are using clues given to you to find a location but not a cache. Essentially he is using the 'hunt' to get people to his book signings. Like today's clue you have to go to Borders books in Seattle where he is having a book signing. You're supposed to ask HIM for a clue and a gift. It's more publicity gimmick and less geocaching. Also they actually never use the term geocaching.

But boy, they knew exactly what group to target for the thrill of a hunt. There are two parts, the book signings people can go to get a clue for something else but there is also a separate clue that has nothing to do with his book signing. For example, he was in WA state but the "cache" ( and he is calling them caches, just not geocaches) was in Cincinnati.


It seems pretty cool to me.
