salsman found Altoid Tin - Rochester - #500! (Unknown Cache) at 10/5/2013

Log Date: 10/5/2013
If you're surprised this is being found today you're not the only one! I remember our first conversations about this one while it was still in the planning stages. I knew it would be daunting, but didn't know exactly how challenging you planned to make it. Let me thank you up front for leaving that Hawaii and those Iraqi Altoids off the list!

That said it was still a very, very difficult challenge. With every state park we visited last year I cross checked with these caches to see if they were close. Some of them were, most of them weren't. My favorite trips were to BFN MN. I got to go there at least twice.

After about a year I had every intermediate stage except for 3 of them. Those 3 proved the hardest as they're in states I never travel through, and never have a reason to travel through. Tried to solicit some help with those early on, but no one was interested. Bummer for them...

As luck would have it I knew someone who'd be in the area this month that could knock off 2 of them for me. I slipped them what I knew, and waited patiently. They came through for me yesterday, and then asked about the last one I needed. I told them where it was so they made a "slight" detour in their travels.

While all this was going on yesterday I did some number crunching on my end, and sent them a message saying, "I bet the number I'm looking for will be XXXX". An hour later I had my answer - I was off by 12 - I suck [Very Happy]. Now, I knew where to go, but it was late.

Got up early today before the rains, and headed there on my bike. After a short search I had what I was looking for. Sweet success! Chalk up another lonely cache. Thanks BW!

It was right there waiting to be found - one of the faster of the day. Another find - deer ticks. They are out in force again. Yuck...but it ain't gonna keep me at home. Thanks for the cache regardless of the crawlies.

As I approached the GZ area I ran into Higlandgirlz who had actually just found the cache. My first time ever running into another cacher. Since I did not find it, I decided not to take credit for it. There certainly are enough other caches out there for me to find. TFTC

I don't go canoeing, or to Michigan, or fly in the air.

I had already been to the Boundary Waters.

It's logs like this that make us want to go hide more caches!

Our first ever find was a KRedEP cache. 902 finds later we found our 29th KRedEP cache to finish stalking them (at least for the time being). Along the way we made a KRedEP cache our 75th and 100th milestones. Thanks for getting us going and all the fun caches along the way.

Magsmark couldn't find Elvis Is Still Everywhere (Traditional Cache) at 11/10/2013

Log Date: 11/10/2013
We both spent quite a bit of time looking for this one. About a half hour into the search an ambulance and a rescue squad pulled up and asked if we had called them. Apparently someone saw me laying on my belly searching and called them thinking I needed help. We explained what we were doing and they actually stayed for a while and helped look all to no avail. I probably won't be back for this one. Thanks for the hide and the adventure.

Another fabulous mikedeotis log (as usual) this time for Mt. Brooklyn Park:

"I had been traveling up Mount Brooklyn Park for more days than I can remember. I just know that I kept going to the north. I had ten people in my climbing crew when I started, but one by one they abandoned me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm the only one trying to make it to the summit. As I came over another ridge, a voice called out to me, "What's your business here?" (See pictures for what I saw) I scanned the area and was shocked by what I saw! It was tiny Christmas Elf! I had traveled so far north that I had reached Santa's Workshop! "I'm geocaching!" I replied. He called back,"If you're not applying for ELF apprenticeship, go away!" "What about the cache?" I shouted back. He didn't say a word, but just pointed to the west. I looked at my gps and when I looked up....he was gone! I went to the west and found the cache, but did I really see the ELF? See the pictures and you decide! Thanks for the Mountain climb guys! TFTCSL"

Holy Strollers found Frank Peavey (Traditional Cache) at 12/29/2013

Log Date: 12/29/2013
Getting this cache today was further evidence, if any more is needed, that geocaching is a mental illness. Or perhaps the sign of a brain injury. We didn't need this for a calendar grid filler. We picked this one up because we were in the area. We were in the area because we attend a downtown church. But we'll still be at the same church in four months; what possessed two otherwise normal people to do something as crazy stupid as going caching on a day like today? Alright, I acknowledge that there is some controversy as to just how normal we are. Certain cachers who knew me before Best Girl and I were infected with geocaching are politely invited to keep their opinions to themselves. This means you, Becca!

So...after we found the cache, Best Girl headed back to our nice warm car while I froze my fingers fighting with the log. I dropped the transparent part of the cache while signing the log and it took a while to find it. I signed HS because it was just too cotton-pickin' cold to write the whole thing out. Finally got it all back together and in place. All in all, a distinctly unpleasant experience. Who in their right mind does something like this? I guess we're back to that whole "right mind" issue again.

When I was safely back in the car I held my hands in front of the heater vents until my fingers thawed. Mama Stroller reached over and caught the snotcicle on my nose before it dripped on her car. All you Minnesotans know exactly what I mean.

Minnesota found MH: Trail 44 (Traditional Cache) at 2/6/2014

Log Date: 2/6/2014

I was out finding the power trail caches from hand entered coords. On my map screen I see a cache container. Hum, at least a 3 yr old pocket query. But, it is a KB cache. Well, I guess I have to go for a look see. My trek through the snow paid off. Not only was the cache there, it was very winter friendly!

I guess I will have to return for more of the MH series.
