I am going to be in town from Duluth and would be interested in joining the festivities, both dinner and caching. Is 7:30 the time to meet at the coordinates for parking or dinner?

Cool, another Duluth cacher! Cool We meet at 7:30 at the posted coordinates and get food afterwards. I don't think we decided where we're eating yet.


Sweet, maybe we can pump him for information on that small cache we both DNF'd GP Wink

I'm sure it's right under our noses since everyone else found it. Smile

You figure them out and I'll go up to Duluth and find them and we can share the smiley. Smile

I'll be out after work (5:30ish) if anyone is interested in meeting up early. I have a list of caches to the west of where we're meeting that I'll be going after. (minus puzzles/multis) Smile

I've been wanting to do this one for a long time:
Hidden Valley Pict-O-Cache

Sweet! That makes my day! Smile LMK how it goes, I set it up and tested with the kids as always, but I'd *really* like to make a much harder one for those looking for a challenge. Once you go through it, hopefully you'll see the potential to do all KINDS of evil, twisted things! In fact, I took a stroll through the U of M campus and took some "starter" pictures, but they're so obscure and hard to find I finally scrapped it because I'm not sure anyone would actually complete it successfully. I'll see if I can come up with something in the middle some day - have fun, and happy hunting!

I did a cache similar to that: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=2f0f6f46-c7a5-4108-b382-885cb4970ae5 where you had to find a book of pictures at the first stage and then use those pictures to find specific locations in about .10 radius. At the locations there was a key (A=5, B=2, etc) on the backside of the spot.

The final location was excellent: http://gallery.lazylightning.org/GeocachinginPA?page=3

Definitely a cool idea that I thought about doing here but glad someone else had a twist on it. I may actually log that "puzzle" Wink

I might be interested. Which caches? Would we meet at Pict-O-Cache at 5:30ish? I've done that one, but it might be fun to go through it again.

I think I'd skip it unless there was someone else who hadn't done it. I haven't gotten an answer from celtic or Lucid yet.

Otherwise my list is:
1 Bassett Creek-Olson Trail by GPSr (GCJEAF)
2 Wesley Park by GVhunter (GCJ4V1)
3 Quad's Cousin by FreiGuy (GCTM8F)
4 At the Lake by GPSr (GCQPDF)
5 Developmental Maze by DigiFerret (GCJAGK)
6 Hello There Pilgrim by FreiGuy (GCJV38)
7 Hagemeister Pond Preserve by Team O (GCJ425)
8 Money Laundering Squirrels by digiferret (GCHBY7)
maybe if time, multiple DNFs:
9 Skin Abrasion Optional.... by DigiFerret (GCJC1R)

Good luck. Most people just get a big grin from him when they ask those types of questions.

I kinda wanna do the Pict-o-cache, but 5:30 is too early, I still need to run home and load waypoints and change...and with rush hour traffic that wouldn't be doable. Perhaps 6:15ish? GP, you've got my number, let me know if that sounds right.
