I am curious where geocachers are across MN. I started a minnesota geocachers group on Frappr.

It's at http://www.frappr.com/minnesotageocachers/map

Go ahead and add yourself and let's see where everyone is.

I altered the map to center on MN.

Does anyone know a good logo to use; one that says MN Geocachers?

I also added a "Couples" mark for those geocachers that go out as a family.

9 and counting, not bad, keep on adding to the list people!

21 and counting, keep on putting yourself on the map. You might be able to find a caching buddy!

Does anyone know if I can use the MNGCA logo for the map?

Will also be useful for finding areas/groups for Breaskfast Buddies.

I blame Kitch Cool

Interesting, that site is "banned" and blocked from my workplace, I can't see it. Dang, must be some good stuff there! Smile Smile Smile

If anyone has ideas for more keywords (to help the frapper be searched and found) let me know, so far I have:

geocaching, minnesota, cache, GPS, geocoin, travel bug, CITO, MnGCA

Also, would any of the higher powers comment on if it would be possible to get a link to this on the MnGCA website, maybe the front page? I think this could be a very useful tool in organizing events, or even finding regular caching buddies.

While not a higher power, I would recommend writing up an article and submitting it to the board. If they like it they will post it to the main page.

Now that I think about it, a combo article covering the Frapper map and the new podcast would be a good read.

That has already been suggested.

Not bad, we are up to 29 on the map. Considering one of the other maps I have is from a international website with thousands of members all over the globe, 29 is keeping pace with them. Keep on putting those pins on!

I added the keywords that were suggested, thanks for the help! If anyone has more, let me know.

Just looked at the map again...I guess I have no idea why there's a lot of Geocache's in the cities area Laughing

I just can't wait until this summer when I can take my mortorcycle out and run to grab some of the ones outside the metro...I'm too lazy to do it in the cold Wink
