I won't limit myself to this area. I have friends and family in Willmar and Marshall so I am sure I'll be geeking out in those areas too. I already downloaded packets for those areas into my GPS.

I just started out with walking distant site as I try to get used to this device and reading it. I am seeing other types of caching that intrigues me like Geocoins, etc. But, baby steps first.

I just started real recent. I've had my GPS for about a week. My first hunt was today and fumbled through finding the site but not the cache. I live in Eden Prairie and wouldn't mind a mentor until I get this GPS/Geocache thing figured out.


Welcome to the MnGCA and geocaching. I hope your having a good time. There's lots of us on the West/SW side of the metro. I'd be happy to tag along with you. A note there are lots of puzzles and harder caches in this area. Very well done on both parts, but that can be tough for a newbie.

PM me if you'd like to go out caching sometime.

Am I the only GCer from the east side? Rolling Eyes
Altho I don't mind a little drive on a weekend, or for WNCing or FNCing, I would love a quick hunt after work too.....

Keep an eye on the events section. We have 2 groups now, that schedule caching on a weekly basis, usually Wednesdays and Fridays.

You are doing better than me Very Happy My first one was a micro - I didn't know they came in different sizes Shocked Once I started tho - I HAD to find it, once I started. I got smarter after that.

I agree the WNCing and FNCing are a great way to learn some of the "tricks".

where on the east side are you? I work up on the north side (shoreview) north of 694, east of 35W, and have a tendency to hunt up a couple on the way home from work...

I'm looking for some geocache buddies as well, since starting out today. I'm however stuck in the Metro area, due to the fact I pretty much refuse to drive. Mass transit works wonders. I'd be more than happy to show you, or anyone else for that matter, around the parks in the northwest suburbs.

Also, bump

One of the fun ways to get to know others is through Weeknight caching, on either Wednesday or Friday - follow the events link.
Welcome aboard to the Geocaching obsession. Very Happy

Unfortunately, work obligations keep me away from those nights, mostly. Gotta sleep sometime, you know. I'll do what I can someday, however. Very Happy
