Geo-cash

Garmin have brought out a clever wee wireless jobby that send your compatible GPS a message when you get near, we are pondering having a hi-tech bread crumb trail of these things that lead the wisest traveller to a pot of gold.

The more people look but don't find, the bigger the pot gets.

It might be island-wide or covering Guernsey, Sark and Herm too.

What do you think?

We'll do a test run for you in Jersey. If you'd like to start by sending the gold over to me......

The stingy beggers wont give me any free

All good outdoors shops should stock the compatible Garmin(tm) products.

Though the first one has suffered a set back, the gold I sent to Jersey got lost in the post!
