My wife and I celebrated 20 years of marraige today. We've known each other half our lives now and are looking forward to more years together.

As a reader of MAKE I was excited by a particular project dreamed up by Mikal Hart called the "Reverse Geocache".

The idea is this: build a box with a latch that is only opened when the box is in a special location as determined by the on-board GPS.

Not being able to leave well enough alone, I made mine with multiple drawers - the first drawer opens easily, but the remaining drawers only open in order at different places around our home town and elsewhere.

The first contained a map and drawing compass, along with a small gift. She's managed to open the next two drawers, but we're nowhere near the final location.

To be continued...

Kate and her new horse, Ollie. If there's one thing that makes her happy, it's a big warm animal.
