Please also note that if you are not interested in camping there are quite a few hotels in the area (~7 miles as the crow flies) along with various restaurants for those of you lazy campers that don't want to cook Wink

If you are coming to the event and haven't yet notified me if you plan on getting free food then please do so (you can either send me a PM through the forum or contact me via geocaching.com).

I have added links for the attractions list and GPX to the cache page. You can also see them here:

http://www.mngca.org/fall-event/attractions.html
http://www.mngca.org/fall-event/fallevent.gpx

You'll want to save the GPX as it's likely that it won't open to a GPX file in your browser.

If you are interested in donating food or door prizes please let me (or the rest of the Board know): http://www.mngca.org/board-contact.php

Hope to see you at Gull Lake!
