We received an e-mail from a business colleague who’s moving to Boston. She asks:

My husband and I are moving to Boston at the end of the year;  We will be living in the city,so I was hoping that I could use geocaching as a way to explore the place.  But I found very [...]

Fun with GorillaPod

We needed to take an author photo for the book,so we decided to do it this weekend while we were geocaching in Vermont.  We didn’t have a professional photographer handy,but we did have Dana’s wonderful Panasonic Lumix and a nifty portable tripod called the Gorillapod.  Here’s the result (note the GPSr units).
