Alright, we'll be in the southwest metro. But I'm not sure what to pick yet.
Wouldn't it be nice if newest in MN showed the distance from home coordinates?

UPDATE: We'll plan on parking at the east end of the soccer parking lot.
N 44 50.016 W 093 19.800
If it is too full, we can meet across the street at the archery range.

Caches:
#1 GCVVED So Close So Far
#2 GCW0XV Lincoln Park

Food:
Applebees
7901 1/2 Penn Ave S, Bloomington, MN
N44 51.608
W093 18.510

I'm out this week. Not only do I feel worse than a dead yeti, it's just too far to drive after working 9 hours Sad

I'm going to try to make this one if the caches will be of a low enough terrain rating. Smile

Now I'm not sure what to do. I'm looking at new caches since 5/1. I was hoping to pick a couple good caches that are close together but not so easy that we're eating by 8. There's a couple new ones in Bloomington, but Lucid and celtic already found one of them. Or there are a couple easier caches up by Maplewood.

Bloomington
GCW0XV Lincoln Park
GCVVED So Close So Far

Maplewood
GCVYG9 Scout's Box
GCVYG0 Scout's Log

Since there are so few of us now, I'm putting it up for a vote.

OK...so I'm lazy...I voted Bloomington cause it's closer to home and also that way I get to be lazy and just taunt instead of searching...

but I'd end up in Maplewood too cause it's more caches...

wait...more important question...beer?

Oh, if it's Maplewood, maybe we'll see April again at Tap n Grill? Smile Bloomington, Majors or Sensors?

I know it's my choice, I was just curious to see which location would bring more people.
I'm leaning towards Maplewood so I can cache on the way over there.

I'd like to hit a Posen cache that would be on the way (sorta) to Bloomington, but I'd also like to have the good-sized crew and meet April if it is Maplewood. Or, you could be really convienient for me and do one sorta in the middle -- Brooklyn Center.
