So, considering there really isn't a WeekNIGHT Caching adventure set up for this Wednesday, I hereby propose that we bike around and act like idiots, scoring a few finds.

This time we'll be going on a bike ride as proposed by Moe the Sleaze, the Elm Creek bike trail in Maple Grove.

Roughly speaking, we'll be hitting these caches: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx?lat=45.17015&lon=-93.447517&f=1

If someone would be as gracious to post parking coordinates for the start of the trail that would be cool.

Food and brew will be had at a local establishment as voted on by those who attend after said biking is done. Hope to see you there!

Wed
Jun 21

The parking coordinates provided for GCVMEG are a good spot:

N 45 10.458 W 093 23.777

Cool! I guess I better go so that Lucid will have some competition and won't be the only one at the front of the pack. Smile

Looks to be a 10 mile excursion, relatively flat. In other words, Z man friendly Cool

If you like BW3, there is one about a mile south of the parking coordinates near 117th and Hwy169. Next door to that is the Moon Rock. Ruby Tuesday is further south at 114'th.

But it isn't particularly close to where you're going to be.

I don't care where we go but I guess you could say Granite City is kind of on the way home for most of us.
