Stonagal: Picked up my namesake letterbox today. I finally got to see what everyone was talking about when they mentioned a homeless camp. Walking through these woods again reminded me of when I criss-crossed through here three February's ago looking for a good spot. This one seems to have held up well enough. Thanks to all who found it!

Geocache Description:

Warning: Do not approach this cache from Taylor Avenue, as you would be crossing a very active railroad.  Use the parking waypoint provided.

Cache is a sandwich container.  It contains stamps, ink pads, pencil, logbook, tradeables, and FTF certificate.  It may not be winter friendly, but should remain findable. Bushwhacking is not required, but stick to the trails as long as possible. Stealth is required due to the abundance of two- and four-legged muggles.

Jonathan Stonagal (pronounced STONE-a-gawl) is a minor character in the Left Behind series of Christian apocalyptic fiction novels, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.  He appears in the series’ namesake first installment, as well as three prequel novels.

Jonathan Stonagal is a powerful and highly influential American financier.  In addition to controlling most of the world's largest financial institutions and being the richest man in history, he also owns the genetic engineering company that artificially inseminated Nicolae Carpathia's mother, Marilena.  As her son Nicolae (the future Antichrist figure) comes of age, Stonagal becomes one of his mentors, financing his rise in the corporate world.

At his first meeting as United Nations Secretary-General, Carpathia executes Stonagal with a revolver, believing that his usefulness has expired.  Carpathia then brainwashes everyone in the room into believing that Stonagal shot himself.  Carpathia later reveals that he was named the sole beneficiary in Stonagal's will, though Stonagal's family members receive massive payoffs to keep quiet.  This effectively bestows on Carpathia the financial resources and clout needed for his intended takeover of the world's media and information networks, granting him a media monopoly.

(For the record, my caching name is taken from this character because I think his last name sounds cool, not because I aspire to be inordinately wealthy and powerful like him.)

Congratulations to roddandtoddflanders for the FTF!

Congratulations to Peter and Gloria for their 9,000th find!
