Have You Seen It Yet?!?

Competition for GeoCaching.com?? Not at THIS rate: all that you can get is to the main website... else, there's NOTHING there.

 

Besides, according to the December issue of Today's Cacher, there already IS EarthCaching going on.... and it's being "... developed closely with Groundspeak Inc., the home of geocaching.com, Earthcaches are a partnership between the geocaching community, the Geological Society of America, and many other partners including Subaru America." (from the article).

 

So what's the novelty of eartcaching.com anyway???

 

Read the whole article at http://www.todayscacher.com/2004/dec/caches.asp

 

And find EarthCaches at http://www.earthcache.org/

 

This is an awesome idea. I have a good mind to find a few locations in Arizona to nominate as EarthCaches.

From the site; "EarthCaching captures the spirit of the hunt and replaces the destructive act of finding a box of trinkets with the instructive act of learning and appreciating something new about our magnificent Earth"

 

Uh.... has anyone considered that a million people trampling all over an area of natural significance might also be... destructive?

 

The concept is great. The sales pitch sucks. Glad to see earthcaches supported here on GC.com though.
