There is a parking lot near 'When Darkness Falls'. I say we meet there at 7:30. I don't know the coords, but it is visible on the map...unless GP can figure it out for us! Very Happy

OK, here's the "official" decision:

At 7:30 we will meet/park per the "When Darkness Falls" cache page at N44'55.039 W093'07.680 and proceed down the trail to:

Orphans of Dakota County

This will then lead us towards:

When Darkness Falls

And finally, depending on which direction the multi takes us, we can end up doing:

DVD Exchange

After caching drinks/food at Moose Country which is just up the road.

This work for everyone...I sure hope so cause I'm sick of putting all the links in there Wink I know parking looks like a walk, but I've been to the area and the "parking lot" on the satellite view is a muddy area that I'm not sure is "official" parking. Also, one thing to note, the St. Paul police like patrolling up and down this road so don't speed Smile

On another note: per last years "rules" we decide who needs to do the setup for next week TOMORROW and they should get it all set up without the confusion we've been seeing...if I have to assign people when I'm there, OK, I'm entertained by that but this is getting ridiculous! Laughing

Werid, that map leads to the middle of the woods, but when I put in the coords from the cache page I get this:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=44.917317+-93.128000
which is at a parking lot.

Notice that the cache page for WDF says bring AA batteries.

OK, that annoys me...I swear I checked every link before I posted it, but I must have missed one. I've edited the post above so that link now points at the correct parking lot.

I'll plan on seeing everyone there by 7:30 Cool

Sorry for the delay. Thanks for confirming and filling in the details. I'll be there at 7:30 and I'm sure this will be lots of fun!

More accurate than an atomic clock. I think I'll set my watch to CTC's arrival.

The lights already contained fresh batteries when I was there last weekend. We left them thinking you all would be there tonight. Probably wouldn't want to leave the batteries in the lights with the cold coming upon us.

I'd still bring batteries just in case...

I'll be there! Great choice; I've been wanting to do When Darkness Falls but would probably never do it by myself.

I just got back from a little vacation and am glad I checked the forum today. I expected Confused to go caching tomorrow night.

I plan to be there at 7:30 this evening.
