There is a cache at Northern Illinois University that is a book in a library!

Although the books are not about geocaching, one of our WGA members is a published author (see if you can guess who) that publishes under the pen-name of Carrie Chesney.

The book is pretty decent. Got through quite a few chapters on my nook during the flight down to Atlanta.

If I had to guess, I'd say the author really is a geocacher and actually has had experience in the FBI. (Then again, I never bothered to read the bio so maybe that's already confirmed.)

I'm about 1/3 through the book, and am enjoying it. Please don't post spoilers here!

Too bad this site does not have the Spoiler Tag.

If you post something inside the tag, it will not show up unless you click on the link.

The tag would look like this...

[spoiler]Insert spoiler info here[/spoiler]

And it would show up as:

SPOILER:SHOW

Where you click on the blue "SHOW" to read the info.

Of course that does not work here as I'm just using an example but I hope you get my drift. The spoiler tag is great for message boards to talk about recent movies, TV shows, etc without having to spoil it for others.

None of the caches in the book are found on a guardrail.

Hope that doesn't ruin the story for you. Smile
