Next Chat Room Event will be 3 May 2010 @ 9 PM Eastern. This will be the 10th anniversary of geocaching.
May 1, 2000 - an announcement was made that Selective Availability would be lifted.
May 2, 2000 - at approximately midnight, EST Selective Availability lifted and the accuracy of GPS technology was greatly
May 3, 2000 - Dave Ulmer hid a black bucket at N 45° 17.460 W 122° 24.800, filled with videos, books, software, and a slingshot as well as a logbook and pencil. He called it the First GPS Stash. He shared the waypoint of his "stash" with the online community on sci.geo.satellite-nav. Within three days two different people read about his stash on the Internet, used their own GPS receivers to find the container and shared their experiences online. The sport of geocaching was born!
Dave - Happy Trails!
