A week and a half ago I interviewed with a book publisher to update the Idiots guide to Geocaching. I thought things went really well. However, someone else did much better. So my change faded away. Hopefully things will move forward. Maybe that is the spark to do my own book. It would be fun, and a challenge, and a lot of work.
I had a feeling when i contacted them last week. They were supposed to have made the decision, but had decided to interview another. In the real world that usually points at one of two things. The boss has asked you to interview his relative or good friend. So you do that just to be nice and get it over with. The other option is that they were not entirely satisfied and decided to add another into the mix. The nice part is that I am one of four others that are depressed today.
Geocaching Merit Badge
This weekend I teach Geocaching at Brigham Young University. Actually it is to a ton of scouts. 120 to be exact. Three classes of forty. So I have been throwing together a power point. There is another teacher and we each have a 2-3 assistants.
Well, at the moment I am done with my power point. I am looking for a place to upload it. It does not seem to work well here. The file is 15meg and throws an error. It is not very useful outside of scouts as it has a lot of time on Safety, first aid, Leave no trace, etc. Thought it is a presentation.. the presenter still needs to talk about a lot to make it clear.
