Recently shared by Sue / CalvertCachers of the Maryland Geocaching Society.   

"Sad Day for the Geocaching Community.... I am truly shocked to hear that Magellan has decided to cut support and ties with the geocaching community by laying off the only representative who supported our sport/hobby. It was always great to see Magellan (Jeff Caulfield) at events showcasing the latest and greatest in GPS technology. Having the opportunity to talk directly with a highly skilled and knowledgeable person gave Magellan a lead over other GPS manufacturers and this management move is dumb founding. Especially since geocaching draws such a more diverse and larger customer base than hunting and other outdoor sports, you would think a major company like Magellan would want to increase its involvement. I sincerely hope that Magellan re-thinks this executive decision or I could easily see Magellan falling by the wayside and becoming one of those companies of the past.
Be sure to post or email your Comments to Magellan Outdoor, or Magellan GPS, or through their company website. And Spread the word through other Geocaching FB pages and websites."

Groundspeak has released their I<3 Geocaching Lab Cache creation tool.   Do you plan to create one?  If so, will you create a version of it on TC, OCNA or another indie site that uses Log Passwords/Confirmation Codes, so that others can a similar experience?

Interesting.  The new Garmin "GPSMAP 64 supports paperless geocaching with 250,000 preloaded caches with hints and descriptions from GEOCACHING.COM..."   I've also confirmed that Groundspeak is once again selling Garmin GPS units in their store.  I wonder how long until they actually shut down their site.  OR will they just take the next logical step and make it a mirror of geocaching.com?

Nice to see them making back up.  I don't think shuttering opencaching.com is going to affect too many folks.

Story
Tagline
For geocachers who don't limit themselves to one listing site.
Introduction
This group is for anyone who is a "true" geocaching enthusiast and NOT simply a fan of ONE geocaching service.

Does it frustrate you when people think that "geocaching" is synonymous with one particular listing service? Do you think the idea of competition and variety can only improve the overall hobby? Are you just intrigued by the fact that there are more caches out there that you weren't aware of?

Even if you haven't yet used more than one caching site, this group may still be for you.
