"Ultimategeocaching.net" has one cache on it, so at first I thought it was about as useful as terracache or navicache, but after reading their one and only caching "story," I'm not so sure:


Quote:
One of the most famous geocaches was of such substance that the most militarily powerful nation in human history (therefore intellectually self-impaired) started a war to find the cache, slaughtered thousands, destroyed city water, sewage, electricity, transportation, housing, hospital, schooling, food and commerce systems in several cities, and without finding the cache, continued the war at cost of hundreds of billions of dollars, the lives of more cannon fodder, the failure of its military veteran medical services system, and is preparing to extend the war to another neighboring country. That is the effect of geocaches, even the illusion of them. Iraq Saddam Hussein's illusion of hidden Weapons of Mass Destruction will go down in history as the geocache that fooled the American fools into their government's belated self-demise, much to the amusement of the observers. When the US government leader Vice President Dick Cheney and his Side Kick George Bush attack Iran, in pursuit of a nuclear geocache, the results will facilitate historians recording the fact that Saddam will have by that process defeated the clueless George Bush and the US military industrial empire.

I have to side with rogheff on the fact that neither the WGA nor geocaching.com "own" the term "geocaching." It's just a generic description of the game.

It's sort of like the term Kleenex. Do you ask to use a Kleenex or a tissue?

Kinda...except Kleenex is a brand name, Kleenex protects it. Pick up any copy of writers' magazines and they run ads in there reminding writers to put the little reg mark after it. Geocaching isn't trademarked, as far as I know.

as long as you pronounce it eeco (long e) and not echo. people who say echo friendly should be slapped upside the head. it comes from the word ecology.
