Sorry for the down time. Site is back up and operational. And should be faster. The site hosting company switched the site to a faster server but failed to notify me of the change. So the site was pointing to the old server till I got the needed info to point it to the new one. It also seems we have lost about a days worth a data. :(

Enlisting Geocachers for the DARPA Challenge

As part of the nationwide DARPA event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Interwebs, we're enlisting geocachers to be part of a fun social networking/GPS technology challenge. The challenge is to be the first to submit the locations of 10 moored, 8-foot, red, weather balloons at 10 fixed locations in the continental United States. The winner will receive $40,000. If Groundspeak wins the challenge we will throw in another $10,000 of our own money and the full $50,000 prize will go to schools that need GPS equipment through donorschoose.org.


This Saturday, December 5th, a group of Groundspeak Lackeys will meet up in the DARPA War Room at Groundspeak's Headquarters to gather information online of the possible locations of the 10 weather balloons. We hope you will follow our attempts to win the challenge and help us along the way by gathering information both online and on the ground.


How Can I Get Involved?


We expect that there will be a lot of wild rumors being shared across the Internet. Some will be actual sightings and others will be fake leads by people either competing in the challenge or just having fun.


Our secret weapon is an army of GPS enthusiasts around the world who we know and trust. In other words, YOU! We'll be taking some liberties to enlist your help for a good cause.


Are you up for it? If so, follow this Blog and expect a flurry of upd

Well it is that time of the year again! Time to clean up our stretch of the highway and have fun!

When: SATUDAY, Nov 14th 8:30 am. We'll log, hand out supplies, dress up in our sexy orange vests, and start picking up trash at 9:00 am. Completion around 10:30 or 11:00

Where: Our usual meeting place at the above coordinates.

Who: NDOT rules say no one under 18 can join in the roadside trash pickup but they are allowed to stay in the parking lot as long as someone will be responsible for them.

WHAT YOU NEED: Dress accordingly--long sleeves, pants, and gloves are a good idea. Also sunscreen, hats and water if you like. Lots of folks already have those handy little trigger pull trash picker uppers. They are great for reaching into prickly desert shrubberies as well as saving your back from all the bending over. Harborfrieght is a good source for the both vest and picker-upper if you want your own.

If you have a pickup and are willing to haul trash to the pickup area, please let me know in your logs or email me.

We'll have prizes for the following catagories:
1. Oddest find.---I have the prize in hand
2. Most Trash Picked up.--Prize in hand
3. Biggest Find.---Prize in hand

 

There will be a pot luck (seperate event)
