I am sure whatever you chose will be great, I was just offering a suggestion, I have eaten at Fat Lorenzo's many times and I really like the food, authentic Italian. You might have seen it on the west side of Cedar if you head north, the outside is painted with pictures of different foods, vegies, etc?

Of course! Thanks for the suggestion! Smile Will you be joining us tomorrow night?

Not to naysay either, but the original idea is better than the suggested.

A group of people at Solomon's will most likely not be an issue, granted the location, it's still not a big questionable area. A group at Power Lifting could turn ugly if someone looks out their window and sees a bunch of people looking there. While I've enjoyed that style hide, I've always been nervous looking for them even on my own.

Depends on the weather...I don't do well in the heat, and I might melt if it rains! Very Happy

I've seen lots of logs that mention bushwhacking in and out of "that one park over there." The cache page says enter from the south on 60th street. Could we keep going north from there to Solomon? That would eliminate the need to drive there and attract more attention. Then we could walk south back to Crosstown Exposure and Forgotten Resting Place. Maybe we just skip Solomon's Exposure and do the other three. It really doesn't matter to me. Smile

Ok, since celtic and Lucid have not commented about beer, it will be Fat Lorenzo's.

Actually I approached "that one park over there" from the north, after I found Solomon. I'm guessing it'd be just as much bushwhacking to go through the area as it would be to go in and back out on one side. (memory serves that I had about 300 feet at the treeline from the north side to the cache).

However, that would mean you would have to bushwack the entire way back to your vehicles.

True, I've removed Solomon's Exposure from the cache list. I'll just include it in my pre-cache list. We'll meet on Cedar Ave south of that one park over there and walk to the other two caches. I've updated the initial post.

If you approach "That one park over there" from the south and enter the woods near the "stop sign", you will find a path that leads directly to the cache with little or no bushwacking. Once you get to the area, you'll see where to park and you can't miss the stop sign to the west.

Yeah, park along Cedar Ave and I assume you mean the stop sign at the corner of Crosstown Road? Thanks for all the input everyone. Smile

I'm just trying to get this straight so that no one gives me crap for bad planning and celtic can't say, "who put this trail here?!" Smile
