A Little Hint Please

SPOILER WARNING:  While I’m careful not to give away too many specifics about a cache, it is always possible I might mention details you don’t want to know. Proceed accordingly.

Google News Web Element

Just for fun I thought I would try out Google’s News Web Element to see what kind of stories it might show. Here it is set to get geocaching stories:
