Fill the bladder water bottle with gin and pink lemonade.

I believe lilbeardy might by underage?

(But, for me, that is a GREAT tip!)

I am sure the autocorrect replaced ginger ale with gin.

Now if they would move the I and O apart on the smart phone keyboard so I would quit swapping in and on.

Use 2 vehicles to leapfrog about 7-10 miles so you don't have to ride back the area you just cached.

Personally, I'd take a road trip to do some awesome Cache of the Month nominees and high-favorite caches like say Lair of Smaug in Winona or one of the Gauntlets, or canoe/kayak the Cannon River with a buddy rather than a power trail.

Depending on what stretch you do, take a lot of dry log books with you.

We use a geo metro and a Bonneville

P.S. The Bonneville has 338,000 miles, I doubt it would make it. So were taking the geo metro with 1/3 of the miles of the Bonneville.

Or take a segway perhaps?? Cool

We did the two car trick as well. It was 4-5 hours each way from Rochester, but we were able to rest the legs a bit in between caching and biking for four or so hours at a time.
