I’ve been kind of a grump about geocaching for a few weeks, but today TWO nice things have caught my attention.
1. Check out Groundspeak’s official blog to read about a woman who successfully convinced a national park to allow physical geocaches! This is a real victory for us.
2. Groundspeak is going to implement a cache rating system… and it probably won’t suck! Geocachers will be allowed to designate a percentage of their cache finds as “favourites,” and other geocachers will be able to see how many people have designated a given cache as a favourite. The timing of this feature is interesting, given the launch of Opencaching.com this week.
