You never know what you'll come across when hiking the trails of Western Washington. That's what Tom Wenzl loves the most.

Wenzl, an avid geocacher, is always on the hunt for hidden treasures. “It's a lot of fun,” said the Mount Vernon patrol officer. “It's like the biggest Easter egg hunt in the world.”

Typically when geocachers are out on the trail, they're looking for cheap trinkets stashed inside tree trunks. But a few weeks ago, Tom Wenzl ended up on the trail of something much more valuable.

Brenda Johnston was lost on Mount Vernon’s Little Mountain. She had strayed onto an unfamiliar trail and got disoriented when the sun went down. “I couldn't get out,” she said. “I kept trying, and I kept feeling like I was getting more and more lost.”

Johnston did the right thing. She called 911 and stayed put.

The webhost moved the site to another server and IP. Since I don't use there DNS service the site was still pointing to the old IP.

Hopefully we are good till the next time.

MINDEN, NEV. — Leave it to a Gardnerville math professor and his 9-year-old son to track down a car in the wilderness within 16 hours of seeing it on a TV commercial.

“We do a lot of geocaching, and Matthew joins me. We go hiking all the time and know the area pretty well. That’s what led us to find it. We recognized the landmarks,” said Bruce Armbrust, a 38-year-old Gardnerville resident who teaches math at Lake Tahoe Community College.

On Sept. 10, Bruce and his son Matthew, a fifth-grader, found a Dodge Journey that had been hidden in Hope Valley as part of the car company’s national marketing campaign, “Search engine for the real world.”

Offering clues in both TV spots and YouTube video, as well as live feed from the remote location, Dodge promised a free Journey, which retails at nearly $19,000, to the first consumer with enough wherewithal to follow the clues and find the vehicle.

Enter the Armbrust family: Bruce, Matthew, Laurel, and Daniel. Laurel is the Internet-savvy mother, and Daniel is a high school senior, likewise savvy, but who unfortunately had band practice that day.
