Time for a cache clean-up and a thank you to Nomex

You may notice that a number of caches marked with Needs Archived logs (or SBAs, as they used to be called) are going to be archived within the next few days. Every so often I enlist help from fellow reviewers to clean up these inactive geocaches where the owners have apparently gone AWOL. One of my go-to reviewers for this assistance has been Nomex. He is once again providing this valuable volunteer service to me and to all Iowa geocachers. Thanks, Nomex! By the way, if you visit Nomex's profile page, you'll see he has listed a bunch of helpful tips for submitting new caches.
