GCW5KB - Goodnight Chuck by Team Hooligan
Nominated by Kurt Franke
I came across a Team Hooligan cache outside of Chisholm that was one of the best I have seen.
The cache is called Goodnight Chuck. It has only been around since 5/20/6 with what looks like 16 finds. It is a night cache so I suppose that cuts into the traffic/popularity.
As I said in my log, it is simply the most fun I have ever had caching. I attempted it with my son back in August only to run out of time that night. Came back a couple months later and completed it, by myself, in the middle of the woods, in the dark. Took me several hours to complete. Great time!


GCYYW3 - Wam! Pow! Sok! by bflentje
Nominated by knowschad
Wow! Pow! Sok! I haven't had a physical and mental challenge like this one since Silent Bob's Stonehenge. It took me longer to decide to sign it than it did to find it, and even then I wasn't sure I was up to it. My only wish is that I had eight more caches before it so that this could have been my 400th milestone cache.


GC108WR - Freight Train Blues by Candy Apple Green and KnowsChad
Nominated by Da Bloodhound
I would like to nominate FREIGHT TRAIN BLUES, GC108WR, for cache of the month.
Owners Knowschad and Candy Apple Green have combined on a dandy cache. The two evil doers have combined a cache that can be a real challenge to get to as well as one that demonstrates a superior degree of clever camoflage. They have done a GREAT job.

I vote for "Goodnight Chuck" for April Cache of the Month. It was a great time heading out with a group of cachers for this one. I definately recommend a group, but not too large of a group. 5 or 6 people at the most. Too many people and you can't stay together very well. Excellent Cache, very fun!! ~MGG

Hmm.. Biased? Surprised

I'd love to get up there and do that cache but the timing just doesn't work out... Maybe sometime this year.

But you have not done the others? So your vote shouldn't count then, right?? Confused Confused

bflentje, I didn't know that was a prereq. for voting. Has everyone that has voted done all the caches nominated? (didn't think so) No...no biases here, Pearhead!! Very Happy TH is just so very clever. He is a really smart man. No offense to the other nominees...I am sure they are good too Very Happy ~MGG

All I have to say is, WOW! What a turnout for voting this month! Very Happy Looking back over many of the past CotM's, it seems that 7-11 votes total is more typical. This is great, no matter who "wins"!

I see no reason why an individual should not be able to base his/her vote on the works of the artist behind the cache as much as a particular cashe that is created by that artist. DB

I remember and I appreciate it.

NOTE TO ALL.. My whining is just dorky acting. I am just playing around. If my cache doesn't win I won't be heart broken. Happy to have it even recognized with the nomination and even happer that I get to go geocaching. Very Happy

I understand there are no prereqs for voting and am fine with that. Very Happy
