The Sheriff's Department used what they knew about Geocaching to narrow the search.

The allure of a good geocache can be very powerful. It can often cause some of us to take chances that maybe we shouldn't. Especially us seniors. A very sad story.

Unfortunately, this is not the first fatality during a cache hunt.  Reading the logs of the most probable cache that he was attempting, it sounds like a tricky and treacherous one. Good lesson to all of us to stay vigilant about our safety.

I'm truly sorry to hear this. The story seems rather bare-bones. I assume more information will be forthcoming, but nobody should have to suffer such a loss at the hands of a geocache.

This death was a heart related issue, not a fall.

Sad story. It made the (tabloid) news also here in Finland, though that probably was just because of the dog.

For many, caching is the only exercise they get so may actually save more lives than are lost in caching related accidents or mishaps.
