Ashes...

I found a TB that had a bit of someone's ashes. Not the same one mentioned on the show. If I remember correctly this was a blue bison tube.

I've told many people that I want to be cremated. Put part of me in Boerne Lake. Take some more of me and form it in to the shape of a Hershey Bar with EWB on it and send me out as a TB.

I also found a cache that claimed to be the ashes of someone. Later found out from the CO that it was ashes from their fireplace or BBQ pit. Don't know how you'd tell the difference looking. Anyway, that cache had some pretty interesting logs.

Reply with quote


In the UK we are seeing TV advertising for GPS enabled car insurance - the 'better' driver you are according to the black box, the better price you get for your car insurance

Here's one example
http://www.confused.com/car-insurance/telematics-explained
(other insurance providers are available, no connection with this agent)

Car insurance is mandatory in the UK and electronic records from insurance companies are linked to car tax enforcement - untaxed or uninsured cars which are found in use can be taken off the road immediately and crushed

Reply with quote


As a frequent user of StreetView to check out cache locations before business trips, I was really excited to learn about Google's StreetView Trike
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hr-4Aln1Il8

The Trike is being used to capture images of the UK canal network
http://canalrivertrust.org.uk/news-and-views/news/google-street-view-comes-to-the-canal
as reported on BBC Radio 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19065163

Canal towpaths are popular sites for caching trails and provide level, wheelchair/bike/buggy friendly paths

The Trike has also been to Bletchley Park, the WW2 codebreaking base for Polish / British cryptographers
