I am not able to geocache myself as I take care of a handicapped relative. I would like to correspond with someone who does geocaching in Arkansas (Mena area preferably) as I have a nice idea as to where a cache should be, and am willing to contribute something to put in it.
Please feel free to foreward or post this email to anyone you think might be interested.
My idea for a cache is the vicinity of the Huddleston Store in Pine Ridge
Arkansas, 71966. Pine Ridge is one of only two places I know of that changed their names because of a radio show, the other being Truth or Consequences NM. The radio show "Lum and Abner" was inspired by the goings-on at the Huddleston store, which in the show was referred to instead as the "Jot 'em Down Store". If someone wants to plant a cache near there, I will send them 5 identical discs containing the very earliest surviving episodes of the show. If I enclosed them all, you see, the whole set would evaporate very quickly... but 5 identical discs? More likely someone will copy and replace what they've taken.
What do I get out of it? A little vicarious fun, a chance to possibly turn
some folks on to the wonders of old time radio... and maybe whoever does the cache will take some pictures of it from all around it for me.... and maybe even inside... the ones on the Net are invariably of the front, and pics of it are not rare on the Net. Since I will never in a million years get to see it with my own eyes, this may be the only chance I'll ever have to see it.
