Found any good caches lately?

TJ and I found WestSideDaddy's "Pushmi-Pullyu" (GC2JZJW) this past weekend and really enjoyed the experience.

Some real work went into the hide on this one, and we think it was really well done. I can't go into much detail without spoiling it, but it was a completely unexpected hide!

It's never too early to get those CotM nominations in! Found a good cache recently (it doesn't have to be a recently placed cache), nominate it for CotM!

Thanks JJnTJ for nominating!

Ok, I'll try a nomination. For those looking for a straight-forward ammo can at the end of a fantastic hike I would like to recommend "Crooked Creek Cache". Not as popular as it's nearby neighbor "Lair", this takes you on about a 1.3 mile-long hike up and along a bluff by the Mississippi in the southeast corner of the state. A nice little stroll with great views at the end, with some other interesting waypoints to check out in the cache listing, I think it deserves COTM!

Sweet, I found that one three years ago.

Okay, I'll play as well.

I'd like to nominate K0TLG's creatively done puzzle: GC2NCF7: It's in the Hole! Just the right level of difficulty, and very nicely crafted. Kudos!

I would like to nominate boonies GC2H86N for cache of the month. The cache affords opportunities for birding, snowmobiling, snowshoe, or just a good fashioned walk.

One of the great things about a cache like this is the stories you get to tell around the campfire!

I'd like to nominate sigilwig44's wheirgo wannabe (GC2NNND) as the March 2011 cache of the month because: it is a good hiding place and how hard it is to get to!! The video is a very clever idea and is a good clue, but not easy. Haha. It's a cool idea to not have to go and get the garmin oregon for $500 to find a cache. VOTE NOW!! [/b]

I'd like to nominate Sigilwig44's Wheirgo Wannabe (GC2NNND) because I'm new to geocaching, but had to find this after I saw that C&C marked this as his only favorite out of about 2000 finds. This was very creative and deserves cache of the month. Laughing I'm hooked on caching!!

Nominations for March Cache of the Month are now closed. A poll will be opened on the 20th of the March and voting will go until the poll closes at the end of the month*. Your nominees are:

*Note due to how the polling works in phpBB (there may be other ways around it that I'm not familiar with) the poll may be open for some time past 11:59:59 pm on the last day of the month. When a poll is open it is set to be open for a certain number of days, so if for some reason the poll can't be open right at 11:59:59 (say a production issue at work, busy with non-caching activities, feel asleep, etc) then there will be some 'bonus' voting time.
