Stargate Cache for Arkansas
I heard about a new type of cache from the Ark-Mo Geocachers forum. It's called a Star-Gate. Basically a TB placed in a Stargate cache with a note stating that it wants to go to Stargate ####, will be picked up by someone and taken to the straight to the Stargate listed. This could speed bugs going cross country. I asked about the feasability of getting one here in Central Arkansas (LR/NLR area). We have 2 major E/W Interstates that meet here, and I thought it would be a suitable area for one.
Anyway, Here's the response I got back from the Star-Gate Project coordinator.
Sorry for the slow response. I was trying to map out the Stargates
near you and have apparently found a MapQuest scaling error. I'm trying to overcome that to see how far you are from neighboring Stargates. I'm not totally stuck on a 500 mile limit, but MapQuest returned less than 300 miles to both the Texas and KS Stargate. But AAA places the drives at near 500 miles, which is closer to my experience. Roads aren't crow flight, but that seems too goofy a difference without any apparent huge detours. I also have some very small national maps (i.e. measurements are very accurate), that still clearly place you over 400 miles from the middle of KS. Please bear with me as I resolve these problems.
