OpenCaching.com Responds …

Here’s what Garmin’s listing service thought of Nick Brown’s post: “We just read your (sTeamTraen’s) article about OpenCaching.com’s one-year anniversary. While we obviously disagree with some of the points and conclusions, we’re always glad when geocachers, like sTeamTraen, look at what we are doing and give us a fair chance. “It would be nice if you …
