Maplewood has the LRT series on a nice walking/biking path, maybe some weekend (or evening) you guys would want to do these...there are only 3 on the trail, but there are many not far from the trail.

If your interested, I can put together a trip plan and put it out here for voting on.

Why vote? Let's just do it Smile

I believe this was the series of caches Moe recommended to me yesterday seeing as I really enjoyed the last one.

Sure, I'll do it...how far off the trail do you want to go? There are only three caches on the trail, the rest are within a few streets of the trail..shouldn't be a big deal. I'll try to work on that tonight.

A mile or two? It'd be nice to get at least a dozen or so if possible.

Ok, I have created a page to show you the route I have planned and give you the GPX file I created.

Let me know what you think:

No. I mentioned Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove. Iron Man Dan has 10 caches there and there are three or four others, all easlily accessible from oike paths.

*is really going to have to look for things in the south east metro*

We'll see how things go...may end up having to run to Duluth again this weekend, and with Fargo coming up I don't know what time I have for anything anymore Razz

please note that the following caches (GCTMKB (Monk), GCTMP8 (Binary Blunders)) are puzzle caches and require you to solve a puzzle prior to the event..I'm available for help if needed.

No, the cool way to do Binary Blunders is to just go to the posted coordinates and guess the location of the cache.. rickrich-style!

To be honest, that probably would be easier, I found this code very hard to work with...it took me a while to decrypt it.

I remember seeing that. Hope it works, because I figured out Monk, but not Binary Blunders.
