King Boreas carpetbombed the entire area with caches


That was for Winter Cache Bash and Geo 101

We got Diggin'4_it and Buzzygirl because of those caches. Well maybe, with the help of them

It's been too long since I've hunted for the WC medallion. I'd like to go out with a group of geocachers this year-- if you're planning on attending, let me know!

hehe, I guess medallion hunting isn't actually attending Smile

I pretty much figure those 2 weeks (and probably the begining of January) are hunting time Smile

The 31 caches are prepared. The first few locations are selected. The hiding will soon begin. As in the first "series" a cache will be hidden, for each day in January. That would be Boreas Rex XXXII to Boreas Rex LXII. None of them will be subscriber-only. The container is the same for all. Due to the (in)frequency of caches being approved, don't expect a new one listed each day. Good luck, and have fun.

This was created by a local recently-graduated art student. It may get some use as well.

It may not be well-known, but local geocacher JCBoys has a wonderful website with tons of info concerning the Winter Carnival. He has just released a new book that is getting rave reviews.

Opening weekend:

No Time For Cold Feet, a documentary about the Medallion Hunt, will premiere at Bell Auditorium/Theater in Minneapolis on Saturday. Showtimes are 12:30 pm and 3:00 pm

The annual Pre-Hunt Get Sauced Event (usage-fees will be submitted) at McGovern's Pub in Saint Paul will be that evening. This is a very welcoming crowd (ask Kitch), and anyone with the slightest interest in the Medallion Hunt is invited and encouraged to attend.

I will post my reviews of the movie, the event, and the first clue on Sunday.

EARLY GUESS: outside Saint Paul

Long Lake Regional Park, Central Park (Roseville)

After walking through most of Central Park last week, that was my top choice for the Medallion pool.

27 (!) people paid $5.00 each, in a lottery type chance to pick a park. Since Central had already been picked, I chose Long Lake.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and will return next weekend. There's a lot of humor in it, which I guess I wasn't really expecting.

Each year at the Pre-Dig Gig, our annual pre-hunt celebration, the crowd size increases. I'll guess 150, but I'd like to hear what Kitch. KC0GRN, and mucluck think.
