Part 2 or 2 [read part 1] A message in a bottle captures the imagination… …and apparently, the attention of media. Last week we published Geocachers Find a Message in a Bottle from 1970. Its says… (part 1). Jean-Francois Cianci (known in the Geocaching word as Monkeyturtle) detailed how he discovered a bottle while clearing garbage from a wetland at a Calgary, Alberta area CITO event. The bottle contained a very clear note from 1970. It also contained a request, a mission even. And Jean-Francois took the mission seriously.
