My favorite cache in the area has recently been archived. Nearly Naked, forget the GC number.

With all the snow some of these maybe a bit difficult to get to or find....

There is a fun virtual south of there.
GCH28B

We've enjoyed caching up that way in the summer and fall, but I do think many were ground hides. Our favorite in the area was also archived, Seldon's Gauntlet, but we look forward to doing his new one sometime.

There are a lot of fun puzzles and I have a pile of them solved, so I guess we have to plan a trip back up that way ourselves come spring.

AAH, yes that one was a cool virtual! We have friends in Owatonna that live just over from the airport so it was an easy one right on the way.
I did a pq search for found in last 7 but had very few returned, so then went with the winter friendly attribute and that was just as narrow list. I was guessing most were ground hides. I've moved onto anything small and above and that returned more, now just to see if I can find them.
Although the forecast isn't looking great now for when we need to travel.

Owatonna and Faribault have a lot of neat caches...the flooding in September took a lot of them away...and the recent snow fall has only made those that survived that much more difficult. Many of those in the area have been long since found by locals...so, I wouldn't put a whole lot of stock into the 7-day thing...especially after the snow...people just don't want to walk through the stuff when it is 3 feet deep!!!

lol, I am not calling it stupid...I have done the "snow tredge" many times...heck, even went to Owatonna and Faribault once after a snow storm just to get some First-to-Finds!!! The roads were not even cleared yet...what is normally an hour took about 2 hours!!!

Would this go under the psychotic caching award sections? Twisted Evil

Just an FYI Nearly Naked has been archived.
