This is a good little news item: Goecaching—21st Century treasure hunting using GPS—caused a scare in Peekskill because the cache, a plastic pipe, looked like, guess what, a pipe bomb. In the game, GPS-using hunters find the chaches and add something to them to show they were there, then hide the thing again. The Peekskill Patch story says the cache was probably washed near train tracks by Hurricane Irene. And a link in it shows this isn’t the first scare the caches have caused.
Is it our games or our fears we should worry about?
