Back to a reasonable time for those of us that work till 6 Wink I don't know what was decided last week for sure but I did hear that my name was mentioned -- I haven't done it in a while and wanted to pick a location I would actually be able to make it to!

I'd pick a root canal over driving east on 494 at rush hour, Shocked but I'll be there one way or the other. Very Happy

what rush hour are you talking about Shocked

once you're past MOA even during real rush hour 494 goes fast...and a 7:30 start means it's a bit past rush hour in my book Laughing

Until you get to Inver Grove Heights and you hit the backup from the bridge/road construction near the Highway 61 exit going over to Hastings. That's a nightmare prior to 6pm but as Z said, it'll be fine by 6:30.

Well, at the WACODA Bridge at 61, there is a lot of construction, which slows things back to 52...

Yeah, I know. But I'll probably head over a little early to do some pre-caching since this will be my first time in that area. Smile

Yeah, if I gotta drive 27 miles to get there from Hopkins, you can drive 8 to find a cache you haven't found before. Laughing

for the caching fun then heading North to Camp Ripley for the rest of the week, no dinner delight for me. Should have PolarOne in tow as this is her end of town!

You misunderstand. It's 20 miles to get to the two WNC's and another 8 miles to my nearest unfound.

Oh and SB- Forward Observer my friend.
