This story over at Tech TV is a little brief, but talks about a rather questionable use of a GPS for tracking potential criminals... No warrant requires. (Not in the article. They appear to be putting a standard GPS with a magnet on the back of it on the bottom of a suspects car.)

A GPS was used to create a record sized, as in submitted to guinness, maze in a field for corn. "Creating this monstrous maze would ordinarily have required the work of ten men hacking away at corn stalks for a full three weeks, a labor-intensive process Rose wanted to avoid. Instead, he came up with an ingenious solution: He had a special program created for his GPS device, entered his design into it, and, using a map displayed on his GPS screen as a guide, sculpted the maze on a riding mower with just one day's effort."

These days we have be come accustomed to seeing people congratulated for reaching the 100 find mile stone, but one year ago today 100 finds was a record that everyone was amazed to see reached. The 100 find place in history went to the now famous Team "Wyle E" that came out of nowhere, and passed up everyone leaving even the origional geocachers, that had a 6+ month head start, in the dust. At the time there were only 187 caches in all of arizona (counting the archived ones as well) Today, Team "Wyle E" continues to break records, has 619 finds out of an amazing 962 caches, and has only lost the first place 1 time for a day or 2 to Team Sanddollar.

Arizona Republic, What have you done? PDF Print E-mail

I got interviewed over the phone a couple days ago about geocaching... Today I see my name in the paper attached to and article that is set to destroy the very sport that I have poured so much time into, both in participating in the actual sport and the creation of this website.

When I was being interviewed I was given the facts and at the time didn't know what to say. I didn't know anyone capable of doing anything more than cleaning up a cache site at the very most. It didn't even occur to me till I saw it in print that the accusations that were being made are completely unfounded. The blame is being pointed at geocaching because a cache was the first thing found after finding the "destruction". This is a completely unfounded and it is an unfair accusation. It is much like blaming the first person you see upon finding graffiti on your house that has had time to dry.

If you are here because you read the article in the Republic, I would like to challenge you to get to know the people on our mailing list. They represent about 1/3 of the total Arizona Geocaching community and roughly 95% of the most active geocachers.

You can also read through our mailing list archives and see that every one of the posters has a love for our land. They insist on having all the proper permits, and are quick to scold someone when they put a cache in a place that it should not be.

Last but not least, here is a link to a message posted by the possible owner of the cache in question mentioned in the newspaper.

Update: Here is a message from the last person to visit the cache before it disappeared.

Another Update: A message from a geocacher that visited the site after the cache was taken.
