Greetings from Minnesota Ki....King Boreas? Hey, we've got a guy back in Minnesota who goes by that name too. Anyway, felt need to make this stop and grab on way back to hotel after morning on volcano. Took nothing, LAUNCHED a Minnesota themed TB (let's see where it goes), and SIGNED THE LOG!

Thank you! for this placement.

Another good log. This time on our new under-water cache.

When I saw this cache listed I thought, probably not for me. Of course, that didn't last very long. So I grabbed my waders. What are my waders? That would be my cut off jeans and a pair of old tennis. I got to the boat launch and to the utter surprise of a woman standing, I just walked right in! I smiled and waved...she stood there with her mouth open. Funny! But the joke was on me. I didn't know that the cache was a ten of a mile from the launch. How long to walk a tenth of a mile? Three minutes? No, more like twenty-three minutes. I started walking and my feet started sinking. HELP! Something is holding onto my feet! My feet had sunk into the soft ooze on the bottom. When I tried to get out, my shoes started to come off. Oh god, now what? So it was one slow step at a time with an occasional almost losing my balance and going into the water. Got to the cache, got it out of the water and then couldn't open it up URGH! Dried off my hands on my shirt and tried one more time Unnhhh! Got it! Sign the log...everything is dry so far. Put it back and started the slow slog back. You guys really out did yourself this time. Made me feel like a kid again! Thanks a
bunch! TFTCSL Look for the pictures."

Ground zero for the forest fire, so we were unable to look but took some photos. I recall you posting that Jane was Hot. We met her and she seemed about 98.6 degrees, but guess you were right, she was the last person here, and voila....a fire...she must be hot.

joboo found The Armory (Traditional Cache) at 10/20/2012

Log Date: 10/20/2012

I've been watching this cache for far to long!!!
Everything lined up, and me and Z found ourselves with a couple hours to kill, and what better way than to check out this cache I keep seeing being found in the big city.
All the while thinking how the heck can a big trash can last there?? LOL
Well the joke was on me, and NOW I see!! [Wink]
With flash light in hand [:0)] we parked, spied said cache; and Z almost jump out of his pants with excitement at the well stock cache!! Ha Ha
A quick ring of the doorbell and a short chat, and a big thank you for the cache owner were at hand.
Then it was off for a couple more caches and some grub, then back downtown to pick the girls up from the "Beaver" [Wink] concert!!
Thanks again KB!!
Left a can cosey and took the yellow 4x4 TB to move north and east.

Peace, Joboo and Zack

Found it

10/18/2012


So I thought this might be a good time to go for this cache, what with the drier ground. It was drizzling a bit, as I made my way back. Once I got under the cover of the trees, my gps started laughing at me again. It had me going in circles one way and then back the other way. Finally I zoned in on the cache. I had just signed the log and was putting it back when I heard the voice, "water, I just need a little water!" I looked around there was this CREATURE! He (I think it was a he) was just a few feet tall. The hand he reached out was hidden by the mud from the bog. "Water! Please!" He looked so pathetic that I took out my water bottle and gave it to him. That was a terrible mistake! He pored the water over himself and suddenly he began to grow and GROW! "More!", he screamed! "That's all I have!" I yelled, backing away. "Then I'll have to take it from your body!" and he surged toward me. I turn and ran like my life depended on it. Breathing hard, I made it to the car. I could see him walking back to the bog. WOW! Will you be the next to go into the BOG?? Thanks for the cache, but not the creature. :] TFTCSL

Hey,

Found this one while in attendance at Halloween Hoopla!!! Well...the group hitting up caches in the park now consists of jREST, Boreal Walker, laura(no_name), theodellfamily, GeoMatrix, SmilingDuo, and yellowdogs. It was sort of an Eb and Flow all day with the group depending on the cache and other cachers in the park!!!

This one had all of use searching for a while...glad the group put up with us...it was only laura(no_name), SmilingDuo, theodellfamily, and myself that needed it!!! New container here...this one had us searching for a while...and searching...and searching...and searching...


The best part...the conversation between those that had found it prior...

"We found it over here..."
"Well, I found it over here..."
"I found it over here..."
"We found two caches...one here and one there..."

Had me laughing...goes to show...caches really do have legs!!! We found a "temp" cache and signed it (Sharpie Style) and placed it in the seemingly logical spot...and placed a bottle over it to help protect it!!!

Thanks for the Cache,

Holy Strollers found Poultry GC1N231

Sunday, 28 October 2012Minnesota
What a fun day! I grew up a block and a half from this park. Of course it wasn't a park then. After the Navy jet crashed and took out four houses just off the crosstown (though there was no crosstown then) the government bought up the remaining open land in the area around Mother Lake for an airport buffer zone. They put up a little fence that could never keep us kids out. I was an adult before they put up a fence that would keep anybody out. I know of at least one private plane that went down in the buffer zone because I saw it upside down.

It's been nearly fifty years since I have been in this area, but what fun we had fifty years ago. Today I found the remnants of an old pump house I never knew was there; there was a lot more water in those days which greatly limited our mobility. There used to be another pump house somewhat west of the one I found today. I think it must be underneath the hills they made with all the fill they dumped here. If I ever found out that my son did the things that my friend Jack and I did in that pump house I would have grounded him till he was forty-five. Not that it was so very bad, just completely illegal and incredibly dangerous. It is by the grace of God, and a miss by maybe six inches, that I am neither dead nor horribly disfigured. This was the best place in the world to grow up.

minxcomix reported Chute Square (Traditional Cache) needs maintenance at 11/7/2012

Log Date: 11/7/2012

Found this with AmazingGirl. Took us a bit, It was a nice hide. But it seems to have been muggled as the log had been removed and an interesting note putting a spell on the finders was put in it's place. Oh lucky me. I removed the spell and put a strip of paper as a new log in it's place, but CO may want to keep an eye open on this one. Send me a line if you wish to communicate with me about this.Construction seems to be done as the yellow tape is broken and flying about in the winds like long banners. But this isn't in an area that is taped off anyways.Always liked this area. Thanks for the excuse to wander about in it.

Had a hard laugh this afternoon. It appears Minnesotan's are too trusting of Old Man Winter's ability to freeze the water. Our first log came in earlier today from tonkajen. She wrote:
Quote:
"Now trying to get my 100 caches for November (then challenge complete) I tell you my GPSr was not being nice to me. It sent me the wrong way off the trail then it had me going across the little river. Hmm that Ice looked strong enough...WRONG! I went around using the path and STILL had me in the middle of a grassy area. Finally I rebooted and found myself 40 feet from the cache on the other side of the trail. Once close to GZ I picked up on some tracks that lead me straight to the promised land."


Then just a couple minutes ago I opened a log from mikedeotis, in the same park and stream! Laughing As far as I can tell they were not geocaching together. I couldn't have made the story up better:

Quote:
"I took a chance and skated with my shoes over toward the cache. [See picture] The ice I was on was good in most spots until I heard a loud "Crack"! That sent me to the side of the pond where I could see the bottom through the ice. Found ground zero, but try as I might, no cache. I was standing there next to the tree trying to get a read on the gps when a woman with her dog came by and asked me if I was taking pictures of the inside of trees. I was going to give here a story, but decided the truth is strange enough. At least she had heard of geocaching and wished me well. This one just might be gone. Thanks guys for the hide. Now I'm headed for a couple of your caches by Parker Lake! TFTCSL"


If I remember, the last time cachers trusted the ice near one of our caches when it wasn't quite cold enough they had similar results as Mike and Jen.
Flashback to almost two years ago at our Wednesday Night Caching at Curtis Lake...
