There is a park near by (about 5 minutes from the BWW) that is chalk full of geocaches (courtesy of Mutsley and Crew), it's called Sunfish Lake Park, and it is a large park, I suggest hitting the caches there:

Got Ya!!: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=466a9a4c-bd65-4807-8d73-85ee0c61d3b0

Sunfish Ridges: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=c07156c2-c7b5-4311-bd2f-50b3943b9926


After that, we can do some more, but these will take probably 2+ hours to complete.


The cache page for Forest de Amy says to park at N44* 59.792 W 092* 54.285. Should we start there, or do you have someplace else in mind?

I won't be able to make it for the caching. For some reason I forgot that I threw my back out last weekend and that I still can't really walk all that well Sad

I'd suggest we start at Got Ya!!, it's on the road to the parking lot and we can move from there to do the rest in the order I provided them.

A new cache poped up last night near the Maplewood Mall, if we have time, lets hit this.
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=8713115b-fc42-40ba-8024-1ed2bbb96522

What time is good for everyone? The park closes at 1/2 hour after sunset and they do have a big gate that they close, but usually it's closed at least an hour after sunset, so we should plan to be outta there by say 6:00. Maybe we can hit the Joy Park caches that GP brought up at 6:00...or maybe due to timing issues, this list won't work...If this doesn't work, we can just do the Joy Park caches, or I'll look for some other ones.

Well if Poppa's in, then we don't have to worry about them locking the gates... Laughing

I'm not going to be there early but I might go out to Joy Park afterwards which is about a mile east and find the 5 caches that are there. Anyone interested?

Yeah, that's a nice park, I've been caching there twice, but I've never found any of those... Wink

I am going to try to make it for 4:30. It's a good thing these caches are all winter friendly. I saw snowflakes today.

A great time tonight! Thanks to everyone for making #3 feel so welcomed. I am glad that we could share our milestone find with a lot of the friends we have met in the past year and a half. It's truly been a pleasure. Thanks. Smile
