I have Grand Casino and Mystic Lake waypointed in my GPS, and I'm thinking of listing them under the casinos, if I get a chance. As for the berry picking places, aren't they kind of like the secret fishing holes (there's a category for that, too) in that you don't want everyone else to know about them?

Well, after reading an email from pto (thanks) I thought I'd put in a word or two.

I'm not sure yet that my website is anything other then a personal hobby of my own. However, I am still in small ways trying to gain interest by offering people a place to post photos, stories and (if they choose) coordinates to "beautiful places". It's still nothing much. I have been reluctant to advertize much more due to the heat I recieved in the past. With the best of intentions, I offer anyone to check it out if they so choose. There's no fancy software, or anything, but there's no member fees either.

Thanks for the tip pto! Cool

Here's to Exploration : www.swissperpetual.com

Nah, Jeremy wouldn't rip-off somebody else's idea. Would he?


Yeah, and of course now- its "A Great Idea" Rolling Eyes


Actually, the idea sort of came from Dave Ulmer. He called it "wonderts".
(Dave Ulmer hid the first geocache, if you did not know.)

Thank for moving the topic Silent Bob.

Yes, I did know of Dave Ulmer, but thanks tho Neutral

Well whoever it was, it was Thier Original Idea. The old "maybe someone else should start thier own site and do that blah blah. . . "
OK, so why not do it themselves? Capitalism is a woderful thing.
Premium members only (for now).

No--I just posted a log for Great Waters, and it didn't show up in my geocaching stats. I did just happen to see a book yesterday that goes along with this--Oddball Minnesota, A Guide To Some Really Strange Places by Jerome Pohlen--there's even a whole chapter devoted to the plethora of big fish in the state.
