    GeoCaching is a blast!

    I think this cache just went boom: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache...aspx?wp=GCXN6R

    RENO, NV - Washoe County Consolidated Bomb Squad detonated a 'suspicious device' on Foothill Road, which turned out to be a 'Geocache'.

    Reno officials could not identify the 'box' that was reported in front of the Squeeze-In restaurant on Foothill road. Officials closed down the road and the bomb squad detonated the device.

    The 'device' turned out to be a 'geocache' an item used by GPS enthusiasts and placed at coordinates to be found by other 'Geocachers'. The items was an ammo box that was placed in 2006 and had just been found. It was padlocked to a lightpole and marked 'High Explosives'. After detonation, officials determined the cache was safe, however misleading.

    Pretty funny. Kinda reminds me of my job, we were constantly getting calls for suspicious vehicles at this one location and I just started geocaching the other day and realized one of the caches is at that spot that where all the vehicles have been pulling off to the side of the road. I thought it was kinda funny because now I understood what I would say most of the vehicles were doing over there.
