The nominees for Cache of the Month in December of 2008 are…

GC1AGZ8: Horseshoe Hogsback by First Seeker
Nominated by EskoClimber
I took a look at Horseshoe Hogsback on the map thinking I’d find a forest road or such leading to within 500 feet of the hide. I was genuinely surprised to find nothing on the map, nothing on the topo, nothing on the terrain and nothing on the satellite photo. Now I’m intrigued. I go back to the topographical map and pick out the only route that keeps me on high ground and out of the swamp. I pull out some waypoints to make sure I don’t get too far off track during the upcoming bushwhack and head for Chisholm.
I thoroughly enjoyed the walk on the moraine on this November morning and had an even better laugh when I read Team Holligan’s entry in the log book. I can see that my idea of fun and his differ.
When you’ve had enough of park and grabs then come up and visit Horseshoe Hogsback. I can guarantee that at the very least you’ll have a story to tell at the next event. It might even put you off park and grabs. I can only hope.

GC1FDNM: Rock, Paper, Scissors by AerosmithPA
Nominated by Cushman Rider
I would like to nominate AerosmithPA's Rock,Paper,Scissors for the cache of the month because of the thought,planning and the twists of this unique hide! It's location is near downtown Grand Rapids. Lots of parking (cause you will be parked awhile!) The trails are easy to navigate and you will get to see them all!!

Also Nominated by Uffda320
AerosmithPA makes great use of the trail system with this cache. Without giving away too many hints, this multi can either be a fairly easy find or could take hours. It's located amongst the cross country ski/hiking trails behind Grand Rapids High School. You feel like you're in the middle of the forest, yet you're only minutes away from civilization. Plenty of parking is available. This is the premiere geocache in the Grand Rapids area. A must find when in the area. Just allow yourself plenty of time to find it.

Also Nominated by momandson2006
We just completed Rock, Paper, Scissors as well and were headed here to nominate it for cache of the month. To our surprise it has been nominated twice all ready! This cache is pure genius the way it is put together, it is in a beautiful area easy to get to well maintained paths to walk it is the perfect combination of multi-cache / scenery /`decent length workout hike. This was unique in our caching experience.

GC1HAV0: “Big Shot” in Turtle Ceek Open Space by TopGear
Nominated by X51hz
I would like to nominate TopGear’s “BigShot” in Turtle Creek Open Space for Cache of the Month. It may not be the most difficult hide if you approach from the correct side but the hike is very enjoyable, you can almost forget you are in the twin cities. The .5 mile or greater hike on a "goat path" is well worth it.

The vote will not start until December 25th to allow everyone time to find the nominated caches that wish to do so. Also, please feel free to post reviews or thoughts on the nominated caches in this thread if you have found them.

To nominate caches for January, just email me at or PM me here or post your nomination in Accepting Cache of the Month Nominations-January 2009
