Layne Cameron is an avid outdoorsman who has authored or co-authored four books and more than 300 articles for national magazines and newspapers. The Hoosier native has enjoyed assignments ranging from riding and mapping Indiana's mountain bike trails, ballooning New Mexico's red rock canyons, ice fishing Minnesota's walleye-laden lakes, and barefoot water-skiing Florida's tea-colored waterways.
Cameron's first exposure to geocaching was a January 2001 brief in Outside magazine ("If You Hide It, They Will Come.") Later while mountain biking, Cameron witnessed a GPS-toting hiker--his first geocacher sighting--who at first glance seemed to have lugged along a five-gallon bucket. After further inquiry, Cameron discovered the treasure seeker had just performed the exchange ritual and claimed a small prize. Cameron works as a media relations manager for Ball State University.
